The original under Michigan Ave still does not serve Fries, I think. That was the one parodies in the SNL skit. Read more

Aimee for the win. I have the things from Marnie and Allison’s list(except the popcorn thingy and the Fish Spatula (I have a flexible silicone spatula set instead)). I would not miss anything but the cutting board and the tongs. Read more

When Little Caesar’s is better than your offering; you know you have hit bottom. The worst of it is that I remember when Pizza Hut was actually decent Pizza (I am talking 90's here). What the hell happened?

I think it is “piquant” or spicy in Italian, what with the capers and the lemon juice with the Anchovies. Is Spanish picante specifically hot-spicy?

I don’t understand why people equate Chicago Pizza with ONLY the Deep Dish kind? The non Deep Dish varieties of Pizza in the city can stand with any of the other cities’ pizza offerings.

One other thing to consider is to sand the skillet before doing any seasoning. The older process of making cast iron gave a smoother surface when finished. (If you find an antique skillet, run your palm on the surface. it will be much smoother than the newer skillets). The new cast iron process does not have the same Read more

Bourdain did soften his stance when he visited India. When you see a 2000 year history of vegetarianism; combined with inventive use of spices and herbs; you begin to think differently. Which is why I tell people who want to become vegetarian; to try and use either Indian vegetarian (not vegan because of extensive use Read more

I am a vegetarian and I had a big collection of about 40 books. But I found that the only books I was using were the vegetarian cookbooks. Plus I made a decision to limit my collection to 20 books so that I am actually using them. Because of that, I don’t buy books that are not predominately vegetarian. I am now at my Read more

I would really like it if Ina would condescend to write a Vegetarian cookbook sometime soon. Or she could just collect all her vegetarian recipes from her previous books and make one. I really like her approach to food, but I have a rule to only buy vegetarian cookbooks. Read more

Namaste is way, way better. That way you are not exposing your neck, and you have your hands up already if there’s going to be a throwdown.

I was pissed off when the WHO and CDC were telling people who were non-symptomatic to NOT wear masks earlier(in Jan and Feb). It made no fucking sense then either. I understand that they wanted to preserve the N-95's and Surgical Masks for the healthcare and front line people, but to not say that “leave those alone Read more

When I read George Saunders, I thought of the old Hollywood Actor from the 30's. In fact he would be a good one. His voice was fantastic.

Imma let you finish ... but the best Talenti offering is their Mango Sorbet made with real Alphonso Mangoes.

El Popo, especially the Amarilla, is a good substitute. Make sure it is the paper packaged ones.

Yup. Just like Adidas and Puma. Here in the Midwest a similar story if Farm&Fleet and Fleet&Farm in Wisconsin. Brothers who divided up the territory. In India it was the breakup of Reliance after the brothers couldn’t get along.

This is the right take. Trader Joe’s and to some extent Aldi’s ; half the fun is going and seeing what new crazy buys they came up with in the frozen food section or the seasonal buys section (at Aldi’s). Plus Aldi’s is already practicing the social distancing concept and there have been people shopping there every Read more

Its a seasonal slice they offer. Corn, sourcream, queso fresco with a squeezing of green chiles/cilanto based salsa. Excellent, if I may say.

I agree with you. There’s a Cermak Produce next door and I go to that for my produce. But there are some things at Aldi that are decent, especially fingerling potatoes, Pineapple (when on sale), Eggs, Greek Yoghurt etc.
