  1. Hi Everyone, My husband and I will be in Elkridge, MD July 18-21. I would love some suggestions on where to get crab cakes that have little filler and uses MD crabs or at least US crabs. Some of the places I've found include Faidley's, Timbuktu, G&M, The Edgewater Restaurant, Annapolis Seafood Market, Olive Grove. Are there any others that I should check out? I will have a car and am willing to explore but would rather not go any where in the Inner Harbor, Fell's Point, etc. area. Since I will be on my own during the day on Saturday, I'm a bit hesitant to go to Lexington Market by myself. Am I being over cautious? I would also like suggestions for pit beef sandwiches. I've gotten mixed reviews on Chaps. We are planning to go to Pioneer on our way to Elkridge from Cleveland. I like to take the scenic route so we'll be taking US40 as much as possible. Any other pit beef places worth seeking out? Sunday will be a lazy, let's drive around and see what we can see. A friend recommended Bull on the Beach. It's an Ocean City place with a location in Bel Air, MD. We're thinking of going there, again taking a scenic route. Also any ideas for ethnic and "foodie" markets that are in the general vicinity of Elkridge. I've heard that the Sysco around there is open to the public and has a bunch of kitchenware. Also I heard that H Mart, which is close to Pioneer Pit Beef is very cool. Thanks for any help.
  2. Steve, try Jack's Deli (http://www.jacksdeliandrestaurant.com/) or Corky and Lenny's (http://www.corkyandlennys.com/) -Karen
  3. As far as I know, I'm picking up Tracey, Karl, and Steven from the Marriott. I will be hanging out in the lobby around 4:30. I should be able to fit in 1 more, so let me know if you need a ride.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm so looking forward to this weekend. So far I have Steven (Fat Guy), Tracey and Karl (rooftop1000) to take to Fahrenheit on Thursday. Please let me know what time you will be ready to leave the hotel. If it's early enough, say around 4, we can take the scenic route to Tremont rather than the highway. White Lotus - do you still need the sun tea pitchers?
  5. white lotus, I have 2 of them. I will be glad to bring them with me on Saturday.
  6. I hope to be able to help with any prep and cleanup duties, as needed on Saturday. I will not be able to make WSM in the morning, but should be able to get to Chubby Cook in the early afternoon. JAZ, I have a good supply of glass votive glasses that I used for the soup shooters I made for the 2007 heartland gathering. You can see them in the pictures at the link below. I would be glad to bring them if you would like to use them. -Karen
  7. I do as Kim does - on top of my toaster oven if I'm using it; inside for 2 minutes if it hasn't been on and I need to warm it up. There are 4 of us, so I just keep rearranging the 4 plates so they all warm at the same time. I love my toaster oven.

    Blueberry Pancakes

    My absolute favorite pancake recipe is the blueberry buttermilk pancake recipe from the July 2007 BA issue (it's on the epicurious site). I use it as my basic recipe and do as mkayahara does, add the blueberries (or chocolate chips, etc., if using) to the half set pancakes on the griddle. I reduce the sugar to 1-1/2 tbs and add cinnamon to the mixture. Other than that, I follow the recipe. These pancakes are extremely light and fluffy. -Karen
  9. Kim, that cake is beautiful and oh so clever. Perhaps you can try licorice laces for the tassels http://www.oldtimecandy.com/licorice-laces.htm -Karen
  10. That's it. Thank you all so much!
  11. I planned to make the Cook's Illustrated apple snack cake for tonight's dinner. However, I've not been able to get into their website all day - I am a member. Can anyone pm me the recipe? It's the one with dried apples, apple cider, and applesauce. Thanks much! -Karen
  12. sauerkraut balls were very popular in the Cleveland area pre-1980. You can still find them in a few places. -Karen
  13. Friday sounds wonderful. Please add me+1 probable. Thanks. -Karen
  14. Ronnie, If Jim and I are in Chicago on Thursday, we would love to meet everyone at TVH, so please put me down as a tentative +1. I'm really hoping to make it on Thursday, but we may not leave until Friday. Thanks for all your work on this. -Karen
  15. Ronnie, please add me +1 for Saturday events and Sunday brunch. Thanks, Karen
