What do you do with your sweet red peppers?

I've had too many sweet red peppers go to waste because we don't use them that often (more on that inside). Should I freeze them? What are your favorite recipes that feature these lovely things? [more inside]

Ideas for no-cook meals besides sandwiches?

I'm on a lazy/convenient no-cooking kick and have been eating just sandwiches with deli meats and sliced veggies, and fruit. Assume you could not use the stove/oven nor have any other kitchen equipment (no blenders, microwave, etc, but just a knife, can opener). What are some meal ideas besides sandwiches? I'm not looking for snack ideas like nuts, crackers, etc. but actual meals. I am a meat-eater if that makes a difference and prefer to avoid a whole lot of canned foods because of BPA. (also a tofu eater)

Your best smoothie recipes please!

I have recently (re-)discovered smoothies. I'd never really gotten into them before, but recently my appreciation levels have been cranked up a notch and I've been trying to have at least one a day, usually for breakfast. However, I'm worried my current goto frozen strawberry-peach smoothie (with almond milk and yogurt) will get old quickly, and I need to mix it up. [more inside]

Hit me with your favorite recipe sites!

The title says it all. I've been getting bored with the stuff I've been cooking, and I'm just looking for some inspiration. I like recipes that are Asian or Asian-inspired, because I don't have a lot of time on weekdays and love doing quick, flavorful stir-frys, for example. But I'm open to other kinds of food as well, as long as it doesn't take 2 hours to make. So just wondering if anyone's got some recipe sites they love and regularly use. Thanks!

What should I make with all this fancy cacao?

I have in my cupboard about a half a pound each of totally artisanal cocoa powder and whole roasted cacao beans. I'm looking for suggestions of creative ways to cook with them. Baked desserts are pretty much my wheelhouse, I don't need much in that vein. And ideally, what I make needs to be free of gluten, pork, and shellfish, so things that are either natively so or easy to substitute would be best. Savory or sweet, hot or cold, food or beverage, share with me your favorite recipes or ideas!

Help me make a dairy-free lasagna that doesn't have weird substitutes

I have shiny new popsicle molds. I wish to spend the rest of the summer making all sorts of tasty frozen treats.

Freezer Meal suggestions! Difficulty level: Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Due to busy life schedules, my family has begun cooking weekday meals in a big cooking session each weekend. We cook 'em, we freeze 'em and on worknights, we thaw 'em and we eat 'em. There are a lots of fantastic recipes for freezer meals in cookbooks and on the interwebs, but we've got a hitch - our family has a member with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, which puts limits on what ingredients we can use.

Desserts for a crowd!

I am in charge of making dessert for an informal lunch for 50-60 people this weekend. I'm looking for delicious dessert recipes that are ideally not too labor-intensive. I am abroad and don't have access to boxed cake mixes, but otherwise have most normal ingredients (except peanut butter and blueberries). If it's something I can make the day before, even better!

I want to lose weight and I want to learn how to cook

... and I want to do both at the same time. Where can I find recipes for food that - is geared towards beginners (not too much prep time, not too many ingredients) - has calorie counts per serving/weight - is not always red meat or grain-heavy - and doesn't require an oven?

When you actually have time to cook, what do you cook?

I'm about to have a week off while in-between jobs and one thing I'd like to do with that time is make some amazing dinners for myself and my husband.

Can I still make good Mexican food without nightshades?

I've been directed by my naturopath to avoid nightshades (tomatoes, peppers, chilies, and others) as a way to improve my eczema. It has been helping so far, but I'm finding I really, really miss Mexican food. I'm talking about the standard stuff: salsa, tacos, fajitas, chilli, YUM. Do you know of any good nightshade substitutes that could be used in these dishes? Or any alternative recipes for these items that do not contain the forbidden foods?

Dinner vegetables for kiddo: beyond broccoli and green beans

Somehow, we're in a rut on dinner vegetables that our little guy will also like. Our staples are green beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and asparagus, though he doesn't like asparagus too often.

Honey smoked honey

I've been gifted a small jar of this smoked honey, and I want to cook or bake or roast something with it. I need recipes that 1) really let the taste of honey shine, and 2) would specifically also benefit from a smoky taste. And I only have a four-ounce jar, so I guess I need recipes that 3) don't require a ton of honey.

Is this sorghum still tasty? And if so, what do I do with it?

I have a 12 oz. mason jar of "pure sorghum, standard grade" (3/4 lb) that I bought a few years ago from a local farmers market. I opened it today, and it still looks good, I assume, because I've never actually used sorghum, and don't know what it might look like if it went bad. When I opened it I broke the seal, so I assume there's some chance of it still being edible, but StillTasty.com doesn't have anything for sorghum, commercial or homemade/packaged. So, 1) is it still good after a few years of being stored on a shelf, and 2) what should I do with it?

I now live two minutes away from a huge korean supermarket that has an amazing and cheap produce and seafood section.
