NYC Catch Of The Day

I'm looking for a New England-style fish market in New York City. Help? (I grant that this question may be something that people will only really understand if they have lived in/visited both New York City and coastal New England, but I live in hope.) [more inside]

I used to not like spicy foods and now I do. Why?

Sitting here eating a bag of Chip’s Fuego (pretty spicy!) I brought home from Mexico, I got to thinking that 5 years ago I would have been scared to even try one. I just was not a Spicy Food Person. Like, at all. Now I love spicy food. Why? Is it age? Did I grow a new tongue? Scientific explanations, speculation, all welcome!

who ate the wardrobe?

A surrealist may (or may not) have eaten a wardrobe. For sure, in my memory a wardrobe was eaten by someone, piecemeal and not in one go, but my memory is not reliable. I've searched the internet but found no hints of the event. Can any kind person here help with more information? [more inside]

Save my shiitake

Okay, so I used dried shiitake mushrooms to add to my noodles (dunked in warm water as per instructions) - the mushroom-ey stock was lovely, the mushrooms turned to rubber. Is there any salvaging them, or in the bin they go?

Can I eat hard boiled eggs peeled in possibly yellow water?

I just peeled 15 eggs for deviled eggs under a running tap. A half hour later I filled a white bowl with water and saw the water was yellow. It’s not clear why the water is yellow and we haven’t had this happen before at my house. If I wash the (still uncut) eggs at my mom’s house are Ebro still edible? Or are there just too many questions and I should pitch them? :(

Looking for a good Instant Pot recipe for beans for this weekend

I've had a couple of good batches from a few random online recipes, and I can hardly imagine that this is the first time this or similar has been posted, but I'd like to hear from (you) (today). What's your go-to Instant Pot beans meal? I will likely use dry black-eyed beans or black beans, or a mix of the two. Thanks in advance.

Which salad dressing?

I’m making a green salad as my designated Thanksgiving side dish. Currently planning spring greens, croutons, and some apple and/or fresh mozzarella. What kind of dressing should I make? Can’t use onions or garlic due to allergies but garlic powder is ok. My usual go-to is a lemon and olive oil dressing with lots of garlic, so looking for other options.

Seeking holiday pot luck ideas, tailored to my needs

I'm going to a pot luck. Usually, these events are full of inexpensive carbs and baked goods. I can afford to spend some cash on protein. But I also want it to be easy — I'm a decent but not terribly disciplined or exacting cook, and a lot of folks might be vegetarian. [more inside]
