  1. the breakers in spring lake. across the street from the ocean and they have a lovely porch for cocktails. i woul not call the food gourmet but it is good and the location is nice and being a hotel is very convenient for out of towners. i have been to many evenings at the molly pitcher and that would be my first choice. it is also a hotel with wonderful food and some great clubs with lots to do the next day for anyone that stays over.
  2. drove about 60 mi on fri night to go turkish. well worth it. we had the table next to the glass so my son who was exhausted from camp could watch the chef. he saw how tired my son looked and had a great hot plate of fried potato for him before we even had water. tomatoe/cuc salad, cheese and spinach spring rolls, cheese pita, mixed meats, lamb soup, and sliced meat over cubed with a red sauce and yougrt. the meat over bread was WONDERFUL. we had the rice pudding and a pistachio dessert i dont know the name of. we also oredered an appetizer with bulgar and tomatoe that we didnt care for. the waitress came asked if anything was wrong and we said we just didnt care for it and she offered to take it off the bill. thats how the whole evening went. perfect. i had the print out in car from the website and i gave it to the folks there and they were very pleased.
  3. grew up not far mastoris, huge diner huge menu huge desserts. if you travel a few more minutes into chambersburg around trenton there are some steller restarants. the ddc is having a dinner next week at place called mambo that is not far off. never been but looking forward to trying it.
  4. i am pretty much wheat free myself and i love rice noodles and mung bean noodles. you can get some great thai recipes from the package and their websites. good luck, i have to walk pizza shops every day with my 7 yr old.
  5. you have to have capers, soy sauce, those red onions in jar for hot dogs,hot sauces (many) (do they really refridge), fish sauce. i have been told walut oil goes or gets rancid.

    It might, but the Lobel's grilling guide that came with the steaks does indeed say to add oil after searing, not before. Has anyone tried this method? All I know is that after reading all the Lobel's threads, I did not oil the steaks before putting them in my cast iron pan (no access to grill). While they were still fantastic, they did not develop a great crust...mainly because the s & p stuck to the cast iron. I don't know, maybe it wasn't hot enough. i did just as lobel suggested with sear then oil. i added little sugar to the salt and p[epper and did them in a non stick pan and they were perfect. i think as good as lugar's desperately wanted to grill them but the rain was torrential.
