Why do these supermarket berries feel like they're fizzing? I just bought a small package of mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries) from a small supermarket/convenience store (Rabba in Toronto). Some of the berries are cut and others are whole. All of them taste fine but they also give you a fizzing sensation on the tongue, as though they'd been put in soda water.. The label says they're good until tomorrow, but I've never had berries fizz like this before. Are they safe to eat? [more inside]

My husband and I are going on vacation in May, and need hotel recommendations for Madrid. We will be there for a couple of days at the start of our trip, and a couple more days at the end. (The middle part is tooling around Morocco in a car and lazing at a resort in Gran Canaria, so wouldn't mind tips for those spots either.) We are looking for something comfortable and reasonably priced and close enough to transport that we don't have to rent a car. [more inside]

Planning to grill steaks tonight, I sent Mr. Artychoke to the grocery to buy rib eye steaks. He came home with a gigantor 5 pound ribeye roast, thinking that the package contained a bunch of really thick steaks stacked sideways in a meat tray, or something. We have no idea what to do with this. Do we have to cook it like a roast? (If so, okay, do you have a good recipe or should I go with the best looking recipe that comes up when I google.) Or, can we cut it into regular steaks and cook as usual?? [more inside]
