  1. My wife wants to get some macadamia nuts. She wants roasted and low salt. I used to get macs from Purcell Mountain Farms but they only have raw nuts that you have to roast yourself. Does anyone know of a source for these? Thanks
  2. We tried Ostra for my birthday. I really liked it and would go back in a heartbeat. We go to Legal Oysteria in Charlestown on a regular basis. It's pretty good. You will never get a bad meal at Legal but you will never get a great one.
  3. Any updates to this topic? I've been thinking about ordering some tangelos/honeybells but the place my mother used to use has gone out of business. I'm looking for someplace to replace them. I'll probably order some grapefruit too.

    What to do with boneless beef ribs?

    I make my beef stew exclusively with boneless short ribs. I usually by them from Costco in a big package and divide, vacuum pack and freeze them. But if I run our, a few stores near me sell them. So in a pinch I can get them.
  5. This reminds me of the Rodney Dangerfield skit "Broken Leg of Lamb"

    Ratatouille--Cook-Off 42

    I never had the ratatouille when we stayed there. It must have been great! I do remember the chicken in the crock and a potato with black trumpet mushrooms and poached egg. We do a ratatouille au gratin that we like. Basically cubed veggies and tomatoes simmered then covered with fresh bread crumbs and cheese.
  7. There has been no interest in these. I've put them in the recycling. I've got a few issues of The Art of Eating and Canal House Cooking that I don't want anymore. I had subscriptions to both of these, but they wouldn't reliably get delivered. If anyone is interested, I'll ship them on your dime. Canal House Issues 3 through 8 The Art of Eating issue #61 through 75 (no 62 or 74) The Art of Eating issue #78 through 89 (no 88) The Art of Eating issue #90 (sep 2012) through 94 The Art of Eating issue # 32,36, 40, 48, 53, 59 I will split The Art of Eating by years, but I'd rather not do individual issues. Again, you pay shipping. First come, first served (PM is preferred).
  8. Nausea and blood counts are the hardest to control. They have come a log way with meds to control it. Not cheap, but very effective. Emend works wonders on nausea as long as you get ahead of it. Neulasta and neupogen can rebuild you white cell counts, again they are not cheap.
  9. RIP Mr Gold. I am sorry to see you go. Pancreatic cancer is a horrible disease. Typically it goes undiagnosed until it is too late. The 5 year survival rate is up to 9% now. It was about 5% when my wife was diagnosed 4 years ago. Thankfully she is still with us although she is still getting chemo. Pancreatic Cancer Action Network is a great organization. They fund research and have support groups.
  10. The city is trying to keep everyone from coming (and returning). Now that I know what the tax is, I'll never go there. Sorry Beachcomber. I know it isn't your fault, but you are getting punished anyway.
  11. I took one of his classes. It was such an intense time. We did so many chocolates during the week. RIP JPW, I am glad you are no longer suffering.

    Ramps: The Topic

    I've got some seeds and some transplants. I'm going to see which ones do OK. I was planning on letting them go for a few years so that, in case they do take, I'd have a healthy crop Thanks for the advice

    Ramps: The Topic

    I don't know how well it will work, but I just bought some ramp seeds. If I get only a small crop it will be OK. I may try transplanting some of the ramps I purchased to eat. They usually come with the bulbs and roots. Stay tuned...

    Ramps: The Topic

    I love ramps and would like to grow them instead of buying. How do you do this? Can I just buy some ramps from a grocery and put them in the ground?
  15. We had a microwave and were thinking about replacing it with a toaster oven or convection oven. In the end we decided to get the GE Profile Convection/microwave. It is everything we need although I wish it had more power on the microwave side.
