Are there any guidelines for the sizes of food called for in recipes in books and magazines? Basically, I'm wondering how long it takes for new recipes to catch up to changes in food packaging, how large is large, and who decides that? [more inside]

Does anyone know of any recipes (casseroles? soups? sandwiches?) that feature gefilte fish as an ingredient? Through no fault of my own, I find myself the slightly bewildered owner of 12 pounds of gefilte fish in eight individually sealed jars. I need to eat them all in the next six weeks. Google has failed me, and apparently the famous Midwestern recombinant cuisine does not extend to gefilte fish.

Do you know any recipes of stuff I could bake in a toaster oven? Muffins, bread, cookies, or even meals? What's your general rule of thumb when it comes to method and time of cooking? We're talking old school toaster oven here, I can only select the cooking time, not the degrees. [more inside]

My wife-to-be doesn't really like rice. I am a big fan of rice. What are some good recipes to help someone realize the wonders of rice?
She likes fried rice and sticky rice, but that's about it. I like pretty much any rice dish that there is. How do we bridge the gap?
Give me some recipes! Help me convert my future wife to a lover of rice!

MisterBen needs recommendations for a very specific kind of Indian cookbook – one that’s organized by technique, not by course or ingredient. Imagine if Alton Brown or Mark Bittman wrote an Indian cookbook. The idea is to learn reusable techniques and general concepts of what flavors are used together.
What he already has: Madhur Jaffrey’s classics, Raghavan Iyer’s “660 Curries”, and Vikas Khanna’s “Flavor First”, which are used as bibles. Almost all Indian ingredients can be found in our area, and he is comfortable at making his own masalas, so feel free to recommend books you might think of as advanced.

- I love it. Or them. I don't even know if their name is plural. They're the potato and broccoli cakes from Ikea. I want to make them, but can't seem to find a recipe that will give me what I like most about them - their texture. What I do not like about them? The price. [more inside]

So, I got a KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas this year...yay! But I'm also trying to get back to healthy habits* after overindulging over the holidays. Other than whole wheat bread (proven recipes welcome) is there anything healthy
I can make with this thing? Should I spring for the pasta maker attachment to try whole wheat pasta?
*Not a diet! Not a resolution!

I lucked into a half of a side of some beautiful pasture raised, grass fed, organic beef from a local farmer for cheap! The good news is that we ended up getting this killer beef for less than $2 a pound and that it all fits in our chest freezer. The bad news is ... well... I've realized we don't really actually eat all that much beef. What are some interesting things to do with ground beef and potroast? [more inside]

I've come into possession of a number of lamb hocks. I have no idea what to make with them and I'm having difficulty finding recipes that call for hocks rather than shanks or ribs or roasts. What does one do with lamb hocks? Can one substitute hocks for some other cut of meat? I'm a good cook but at a loss regarding how to use these.

Recipe Recommendations Needed! I'm making cholent next weekend and I want it to be tasty, spectacular and different. Would like to think outside the box a little and wow my guests. Have you had or made any recipes that just totally knocked your socks off? Unusual ingredients are fine, as long as the dish remains kosher. [more inside]
