  1. Thank you! I have family there and I will try to remember to stop by next time I visit!
  2. Do you have any suggestions of where to get saltenas in MD? I still dream of the ones in Bolivia.
  3. I met friends for a weekend in Lancaster County in the fall. I recommend Gracie's on West Main in Leola for great breakfast in a very welcoming environment. The house made jams were especially good. ETA looks like they are closed for renovations until June 4. http://www.gracieslancaster.com/
  4. This feed is making me feel better. I was in Chiang Mai several years ago and I was walking around looking for a place recommended for lunch. I was starving and saw others I was traveling with at the McDonalds and went in. It was better than expected, and the salt welcome on a very hot day.
  5. I should add- I am not an expert on Indian food at all, but I think of House of India as a very good neighborhood spot. Royal Taj is the "fancier" Indian restaurant in Columbia. Also good. I resisted moving here for a long time believing I was leaving the diversity of food in Silver Spring. I am so glad to have great options here in Columbia.
  6. If you are in need of a place to meet between DC and Baltimore- my favorite lately is House of India off Snowden River Pkwy in Columbia. I have only explored the veg side of the menu but it has all been really good. The palak paneer haunts my dreams with large pieces of paneer and creamy spinach. The channa masala and other veg entrees have been delicious as well. There is a menu for 2 that also includes naan, soup and pakora for $40 a really good deal considering entrees are about $15. The meat version is a little bit more. The staff are also very nice.
  7. In case anyone looks for it- Frank's closed last year. I never went but it was popular with some people I know around here and the truckers passing through.
  8. It is really really heavy! and takes up the entire bottom rack of the oven.
  9. I use a baking steel that my boyfriend picked up from someone right over the PA line (I can find out where if anyone wants.) I believe it was $50-$70. It makes pretty good pizza (and bagels) in my not so awesome oven.
  10. The staff has turned over since I was involved with FFM, but looking at their website- the correct person to contact is Nony Dutton (Director of Markets and Programs) Nony@freshfarm.org
  11. As part of our carb tour of Manhattan, we got bagels on at Absolute Bagels at 108 and Broadway. They are the best bagels I have ever had (that I did not make at home.) Highlights were the egg and pumpernickel bagels. The sesame and everything were amazing too. We ran into friends who ran 50 blocks there, definitely the way to go. We walked 25 blocks each way, twice. Go.
  12. We stayed in Harlem during an impromptu trip to NYC this week. Looking for a treat to bring home for my parents, we found https://www.leeleesrugelach.com/. Advertised as Rugelach by a Brother- it was AMAZING. We got there late and raspberry was the only one left.. it was incredible. We have been kicking ourselves for not getting more for the last 24 hours. Mr. Lee has been making rugelach in Harlem for 50 years, and we saw him in the bakery. It was so much better than the usual dry deli cookies. If you are uptown, I highly recommend. W118 and Frederick Douglas, red and white striped awning. https://www.leeleesrugelach.com/
