  1. yep - easiest way I know of. Here in NY we get oranges from Florida, California, and Texas. I often find the Florida Valencias best for juice, while later in the season, we see some great California navels.

    By the way, if you think about it...let's say you're serving 2 oz. portions as a primi...comes out to $1 a portion, which, I think, is reasonable.

    I don't think you can find Faella any cheaper than that...I don't use it all the time, but when I want the pasta itself to be great, it is one of the best imported brands. Now, if I were making mac 'n cheese for a bunch of kids, Ronzoni.

    When life hands you... This can be the result... Faella spaghetti with Long Island littleneck clams. A tiny bit of diced tomato, lemon zest, and chives.

    Romaine Recall

    I guess the few problems we were having with romaine lettuce have, ummm, multiplied. According to the Times, it's getting serious. Do Not Eat Romaine Lettuce, Health Officials Warn

    My Irish coffee

    Who doesn't love the BV!!
  8. I've little to add, but concur with a lot or all of what has been posted above. Certainly, freshness and quality of coffee, grind quality, water quality, and equipment are of primary importance. Have you (the OP) tried making simpler pour-over coffee? It seems like you enjoy a standard sized cup of coffee, and mayb that will make you happier. The investment is minimal.

    Le Creuset -- is it worth it?

    I happen to like Staub, which is probably just as expensive, or more so, than Le C. I've also bought a few pieces on eBay at very nice prices. They were used, of course, but came practically brand new.

    Barcelona with kids

    I think Jamonisimo closed a few years ago. Depending on where you''re staying (Barcelona is a big city), but we really liked the Mercat de la Concepcio. Easy enough to pick up great stuff for a picnic. And I'm sure you can do the same at any of the neighborhood mercados.

    A Small NYC Kitchen Reno 2017

    The Wolf is great. The range top cranks out some major heat, and the oven is spot on with its temperature.
  13. Slacker! Here I thought you were a coffee nerd; and the nice thing about coffee-nerd knowledge, is that it's pretty easily obtainable. By the way, I agree with everything you write about both Rome and Paris (though even in Rome now, they're doing some 3rd wave, and it's good).

    Leftover @rancho_gordo yellow eye beans led to this... Penne e fagioli. Pasta e fagioli can be much more soupy; I like it this way. Watch out, though - hot liquid will sometimes come squirting out of one of those quills.
  15. If more people bought Red Bro, or other similar breeds/properly raised birds, the price would come down, as more producers focus on that. Another reason for your red bird:
