Frozen Asian food shipped nationwide?

I'm planning to move to a new city in the next few years which, for all its other virtues, is 3 hours away from a decent Asian grocery store. Are there any online distributors that will ship frozen Asian convenience food like dumplings and dim sum via overnight courier? Or other creative solutions for getting my fix? [more inside]

Caffeine-free substitute for sweet tea?

I really love Pure Leaf Sweet Tea but I would like to find a caffeine-free substitute to drink sometimes. I know they make an herbal hibiscus tea that is caffeine free but I've never tried it and am assuming it has quite a different flavor. Is there a good caffeine-free drink that is close to the flavor of sweet tea?

Best pumpkin spice flavorings

Yes, I love pumpkin spice. And working from home, I'm not going to Starbucks once a week for my pumpkin spice latte or chai. I'm not looking to recreate the Starbucks PSL specifically, but curious about various flavored coffees, teas, creamers, etc. that might be tasty. Difficulty level: no caffeine. [more inside]

Unique dinner options in Calgary, AB

Spending two nights in Calgary, Alberta. Looking for unique or special places to go for dinner. Very sad to see ANJU has closed its doors. In the past I have enjoyed Calcutta Cricket Club, Deane House, and Hayden Block Barbecue, but we are looking to try a couple of new places on a Friday and Saturday night. I'm pregnant, so bars are mostly out. Fine dining is fine but not necessary; looking for a date-type ambience or cool immersive experiences. My travel companion and I are both adventurous eaters and like all types of cuisines, but pregnancy seems to have turned me off red meat.

Herbal inspiration

Friday, I decided to buy three big bunches of herbs: cilantro, mint and parsley. My idea was to make a tabouleh salad. Now I've washed them and I'm sitting here listening to The Splendid Table and picking off the leaves and it is a really huge mountain of herbs. So fragrant! So I'm thinking that maybe I should make more dishes from them. [more inside]

Favorite easy wheat free lunches?

I am very quick to lunge for a sandwich or bagel at lunch but it's seeming like wheat doesn't agree with me these days. I'm going to go off it for a while and see if it's the culprit, but I need some suggestions. [more inside]

Reliable recipe for Irish soda bread.

I'm pregnant and craving soda bread. The internet has many, many recipes for soda bread, as you can surely imagine. I am looking for one that someone can vouch for being reliable and very good, or one that is a famous soda bread recipe used by many. If you are some kind of expert on soda bread and can tell me what to look for in a soda bread recipe, that would be particularly fantastic. I'm going to be eating it with butter, if that matters. Definitely not as an accompaniment to any kind of stew.

Help me pair wine with food and general, and with this specific meal

Like the title says, this question is a two-parter. I'm hosting a dinner that is a bit challenging to pair with wine, so I could use some wine ideas. And then, for future situations like this, I'd love to know of good online (preferably free) resources for figuring out how to pair wines with specific meals or foods. [more inside]

Creating a family cookbook, seeking advice and recommendations

My sisters and I are putting together a family cookbook and are looking for a website print service where we can upload the recipes and photos to a template. There are a few options, and I'm interested in feedback from anyone who has used the different sites. General family cookbook creation advice welcome too. Also, we are in Canada, should I be taking into consideration potential postal service shipping delays from the US?

Packaged Breakfast/Lunch/Snack Food for Kids

We don't eat a lot of packaged/prepared foods but I'm about to have to juggle ALL the things and it's time for my 9 year old to start making her own meals sometimes. We have a few things she can make and she's used the microwave a bit and the toaster oven but I'd love to know what you keep on hand to get the kids to "help themselves." We are going to have a small pod of kids here somewhat regularly and I want to be able to let them do it themselves as much as possible. [more inside]
