We are watching Private Parts (directed by Paul Bartel! I wonder if Mary Woronov might make an apperance), Marathon Man, Straight Time (slight Dustin Hoffman overload), O Lucky Man, Smile (I am most looking forward to this one) and Lovers and Other Strangers. We tried to stick to movies we either haven't seen or haven't seen in many years. I think we have a good assortment: satire, Nazi chasing, an allegory on life in a capitalist society, criminals, Paul Bartel.
I'm still a little stuck on dessert. Maybe the candy bars are enough? And a salty snack would be nice but most seem to predate the 1970s.

I have been obsessed with pomegranates since I was a child, long before pomegranate came into vogue. I've enjoyed their recent popularity as it means they are easier to find (and in more forms) than ever before. So I was pretty excited when I read that 7-UP was coming out with a limited edition (just until Jan 31) pomegranate 7-UP. Well, I was excited until I realized I couldn't find it for sale anywhere. I've been to many, many stores (grocery, pharmacy and mass merchandisers) to no avail. Even the managers at said locations don't know anything about it. I've found mentions of it on other sites/blogs so I know it exists, but where? I finally emailed Cadbury Schweppes asking them where I might be able to purchase it in my area. I carefully explained that I checked several local stores and talked to the managers of the stores and still can't find it. Their response? Check my local grocery store and talk to the manager. How frustrating. I hate bad customer service. I mean, how many hours should a customer have to devote to hunting down one of their products?
So, has anyone spotted it in the wild?

I've had a hard time thing of what to make them. I always think that people make and get so many cookies this time of year that I didn't want give them cookies. I thought about making candy but last week was so damp, a lot of my sugar experiments came out sort of wonky. So I am thinking of making flavored nuts. Sound good to anyone?

Williams-Sonoma has already marked down some of their more pricy holiday and winter themed baking pans and sets. A few other things have been marked down as well, including the rather bizarre (and still pricy) raisins on the vine and "salad people" cookbook.

Last year on New Year's Eve Matt and I had a '80s movie marathon. This year we are going back to the '70s and need your help!
Any '70s era foods or movies you can suggest would be wonderful! We're also looking for snack foods that were first introduced in the '70s.
A couple of caveats:
The food must be edible. Kitschy is fine, but it can't be so vile we won't want to eat it.
Nothing that I can't recreate at home for the main courses.

I was a little worried about what to eat when I was home, we mainly buy fresh ingredients and had very deliberately been eating them up over the last week or so to avoid spoilage and we were left with an odd assortment of canned beans, pasta, grains, beverages and condiments. Matt picked up up some cheese, a couple of apples, tuna and bread for me but that didn't seem quite enough. My brother offered to pick up some food for me to send over with my mother so I asked for fresh ingredients-mainly some fruit or vegetables. And he bought me a mango, two kiwi and a starfruit. Which struck me as funny; apparently when my brother thinks of me, he also thinks of tropical fruit. Which is fine by me, maybe I will make some sort of fruit salad with it all. It's been ages since I've had a starfruit. He also sent over a candy bar, which was appreciated.
What did you do for Thanksgiving?

My friend Aimee shared a link with me (click on the above logo to check out the site) to a site about being a carbon conscious consumer. I saw the site for the first time today and it seems like I've already a fairly carbon conscious consumer! Who knew?
Each month they have a suggestion on how to cut down carbon use. They are all very simple but can have a big impact:
July was to buy one pound of locally grown food a week-check! (farmers markets/my own garden)
August was to carve out one car free day a week- check! (I work from home most days, and don't drive any where for at least 2 or 3 days a week)
September was cut out junk mail-check! (I hate junk mail and even call companies to stop unsolicited catalogues)
October was to to break the bottled water habit-check! (Never really drank bottled water, it just seemed so wasteful)
The goal for this month is to wash your laundry in cold water (which we already do) and to try to hang it out or dry it on racks (which I already do).
Next month: bringing your own bag to the grocery store-the only one I don't do yet. And should.
Any suggestions on good bags?

When I showed the book to my husband he predicted that it probably had a lot of blue corn recipes in it and while it does, it isn't really too nouveau/fusion-y. Basically it is a collection of fancied up versions of TexMex/Southwest classics like quesadillas but with a lot of fresh ingredients, including a surprising amount of fruit (Spicy Coconut Tapioca with Mango and Blackberries, anyone?). Nothing is too hard to tackle and the directions and pictures are clear and well done. Well worth a peek.

hate: Curves granola bars. I like the idea of a moderately caloric snack bar but they left a bad taste in my mouth. Literally. Their cereal isn't bad though.
love: Italian bitters: Campari (classic), Averna (dark and yummy) and my newest discovery: Aperol which is rhubarby and orangey.
hate: that Paula's Texas Orange isn't available here and they can't send it to me.
love: fresh cranberries & pomegranate
hate: not much grows year 'round here in the mid-Atlantic region.
love: how butter, flour and sugar is on sale for so cheap (59 cents for a 5 lb bag of unbleached flour) right now.
hate: long lines, people shopping who only cook one meal a year and don't know where or what anything is.
love: cooking new things and old favorites.
hate: that it gets dark at 4 PM and all of my pictures are wonky.
In Baltimore we always have sauerkraut with turkey. I didn't realize this was unusual until I was older. So now I accept that it isn't the traditional thing to have on Thanksgiving but it still makes me sad when we go to Matt's parents and there isn't sauerkraut. Or mashed potatoes for that matter. Sniff. But we are having our own faux Thanksgiving this weekend and you can bet there will be kraut!

We were in NYC this past weekend and while in Park Slope we stopped by some gourmet store and they had a whole bunch of (new to me) Mash for sale. It was mango and (I think faux but that's okay) blood orange flavored fruit juice water. Only 80 calories for the whole huge bottle and it was good, I have a hard time drinking straight fruit juice (esp. with food-it is just too much) and hate water so these new fruit infused water things are perfect for me. I wish it was available here. It is made by Boylan (home of the seltzers I love and which also tricky to find here) and was only $1.50. Oh and did I mention it was fizzy? This is my dream beverage. The scant number of fruit water things available here are are still and to me, bubbles make everything better.

Why give a box of chocolates when you could give a whole slab? Each giant slab measures 10x6 inches, enough to both nibble on and bake with. Hotel Chocolat is based out of the UK but has recently launched a US branch so you can get all of their yummy chocolates without paying for overseas shipping.

Wine is the classic hostess gift, especially during the holiday season. Why not give them something slightly different? Christiania vodka comes in a beautifully sleek bottle and is made in Norway using organic potatoes. It is very smooth tasting with an almost sweet edge, which makes it perfect for mixing or sipping and might be just the thing your hostess needs after the guests leave.

From the label:
"Israeli Couscous is a unique toasted pasta, produced exclusively by Osem
in Israel. Like regular pasta, Israeli Couscous is made from hard wheat and
water. But instead of being dried, Israeli Couscous is toasted in an open flame
oven. It has a rich, nutty flavor, it absorbs flavor easily, and the surface of
each pearl-shaped piece picks up sauces, reductions, and herbs."
It has actually been a big week or so for grain type foods. I found quinoa, wild rice, quinoa flour and farro all with in a number of days, all of which have been tricky to find in the past.

The site really is clever, there is even a petition to stop the horrors of cold stick butter tearing innocent slices of bread. Of course, you could just let the butter warm up a bit before you use it but who thinks of that?

We did have to recut the "presliced" slices, but that wasn't a big deal to us. It was not as good as homemade pizza, but very good for frozen pizza. I think it would be good to keep on hand for those nights when you just can't think of anything to make.

Occasionally I get emails about new products to review. Some are totally irrelevant but occasionally I get one that might be interesting. I only review things that I can actually get samples of and try and that I reasonably might buy anyway. I was sent a couple of boxes Nature Valley Nut Crunch Bars (almond and peanut) and while I am not a huge granola bar/energy bar fan, I really liked them. The almond bar was a little dry, but the peanut bar was really good. They're not sticky, despite having only six ingredients and being basically being made up of just peanuts (or almonds and peanuts), sunflower seeds and a light sugary glaze to hold it together. It really is like eating a handful of peanuts in a convenient bar form. They have about 200 calories but also include 7 grams of protein, which would make it a good snack or breakfast replacement if you were on the go- it was really filling. The only major draw back was that several of the almond bars were broken into little chunks when they arrived. Both types of bars are pretty brittle, so I wouldn't be surprised it they turned to dust if they spent some time at the bottom of your bag. Of course, the pieces are still perfectly edible, but it is something to keep in mind if you are the toss-it-in-your-bag-and-forget-it type.

Balsamic bawl-SAM-ik. Don’t say bawl-SAHM-ik.
Despite what you may hear from some slippery-tongued chefs on those gourmet cooking TV shows, the stressed second syllable of balsamic rhymes with ham, not calm.
Who knew? I'll have to make the switch.

I bought the miniature turquoise colander a couple of weeks ago at Anthropologie. At the time I wasn't sure what I'd use it for-the checkout girl said she drained individual servings of pasta in hers-but it matched my kitchen and I just couldn't resist it. Then when I came across fairy tale eggplant at the farmers' market it seemed to be destiny: miniature food for a miniature colander.

I've been looking for Chocodiles for about 3 years now. They are made by Hostess and are basically chocolate covered Twinkies and they are no longer sold on the East Coast. They are so tricky to procure that whole businesses have been made around selling Chocodiles (at a ridiculous mark up) to out of luck East Coasters, fan sites have popped up and petitions to bring back Chocodiles constantly circulate.
Matt really liked them as a kid (and I sort of think you have to be a kid to really love them) and they have become part of our relationship mythology-once, shortly after we started dating we stood in the bread isle of a local Giant and he said "You know what I want?" and I said "Chocodiles" just as he said it. Which isn't that odd, except I don't think I had ever said the word Chocodiles before that moment, had never eaten them and certainly never talked the Matt about them. So it was one of those weird same wavelength things you get from time to time.
Anyway, that only fueled his need for Chocodiles. A need that went unfulfilled until a friend of mine in Utah, Aimee, saw that I was looking for them and said she knew of a Chocodile stronghold. A few short days (and for her a trip to the Hostess outlet) later, we have Chocodiles.

My new favorite pasta for salads is Wacky Mac. I came across it the other day and picked up a bag. I think it is aimed at kids, but the colorful pasta (and fun shapes-I like the mixed shape bag) looks pretty in pasta salads. It also comes in a 12 oz bag, which I like better for pasta salads-16 oz (the standard box size for pasta) is just too much and I hate leaving just a few ounces left in a box.

No, not a package, a sort of mix between parsley and celery, it's referred to as "leaf celery". Our next-door neighbor gave us a big bunch she grew in her garden. It smells just like celery seed (or my first thought-Old Bay). We haven't used it yet, but I am thinking it might be good in a chicken or shrimp salad.

The originator of the retro recipe round up, Laura Rebecca made Coconut Custard
Haalo of Cook (almost) Anything at Least Once made this elegant Port Wine Jelly.
Simone (aka Xiao Zhu)of Curiously Ravenous made this kitschy Lime Fluff
Sarina Nicole at TriniGourmet.com made this Spiced Orange Mold .
I loved hosting this event and couldn't resist the opportunity to make a homemade version of the '60s era discontinued, cult favorite Jell-O 1-2-3.

When I go into work, I normally take my lunch but there are quite a few yummy sandwich shops around I occasionally go to. And since my workplace doesn't have a breakroom, I always leave to go to lunch rather than sit at my desk. There is a little park nearby that I sometimes go to or else I sit in the car. How about you?

My birthday is less than a month away and I am wishing for this cakelet pan. I love the detailed shapes and how the whole pan is shaped like a leaf. The only problem is that I wonder if the finished cakes will look cute without icing (maybe just dusted with confectioners' sugar?) and decorating. I do not have the steadiest hands for that sort of thing. Also: do I have enough cakes I like to make without icing that would make it a worth while purchase? Maybe I should add some extra things to my cooking and baking wishlist just in case.

While at in town for the Mango Festival, my group was lucky enough to have a private tour of the Fairchild Botanical Gardens. One of my favorite things that we saw was this vanilla plant growing on the side of a tree. I've always known that vanilla cames from a variety of orchids, but I have never seen it in "in the wild" before. It one of the highlights of my trip.

I left a comment and now it is gone/it never appeared on the site. What happened?
I generally don't delete comments. However, if it is spam, very unclear/incoherent, not relevant to the post, abusive, asks a question covered in the FAQ or if it appears to be made in duplicate, to be solely self promotional or made in error, it may be deleted. Comments and/or questions that require a response are best e-mailed to me directly.
I may on an extremely rare occasion respond to a comment in the comments section if I have no other way of contacting the person and then delete it and my response after I feel comfortable the original poster saw my response. However, I have disabled anonymous comments so if you do not have an OpenID or a Google/Blogger log in and have a question you will need to e-mail me directly or contact the company concerned.
I have comment moderation enabled, your comment will only be posted after approval so there might be some delay between when you post the comment and when I get a chance to approve it. Keep in mind that I have the ablity to schedule posts to appear in the future. I am not always in town or available when a post goes up and as a result it might take longer for me to moderate your comment. There is no reason to post the same comment more than once in a 24 hour period.
I'd also like to point out that the comments section of a recipe are not the place to lecture me or my readers on fitness, nutrition, or health issues. Please keep comments as positive and relevant as possible. Everyone has a right to their own opinion, but sometimes someone else's blog isn't the best place to express it.
Why do you have comment moderation?
I am not “screening” my comments per se, I am trying to eliminate spam and unrelated comments from the blog. It also helps to keep duplicate comments made in error or unrelated questions from appearing on the site.
I e-mailed you and didn't get a response. What happened?
I try to reply to every email within 24 hours. However, I get upwards of one hundred blog related e-mails a day and it can be difficult to keep up. If a number of days have gone by and you still haven't received a response, feel free to e-mail me again; I might not have received it or it might have been accidentally filtered out as spam. Please do not e-mail me the same question or post the same comment twice in a 24 hour period. I am the only one running this blog and it can take a while for me to moderate your comment or respond. Food Maven is the place where I post simply for fun, my full time job is developing recipes for Coconut & Lime and my clients, my recipe columns, food writing and my public speaking. Occasionally I have to put Food Maven on the back burner to deal with my paying work and clients. Again, I have the ablity to schedule posts to appear in the future and as a result I am not always in town or available when a post goes up and it might take longer for me to respond to your e-mail.
I asked a question in the comments section and it wasn't answered. What happened?
I get so many comments and e-mails between the two blogs, occasionally I miss that a comment has a question in it. That is why I always suggest e-mailing me directly if you have a question that needs to be answered.
I have a question about a product...
I do not work for the companies that make the products I post about and thus have no "insider information" as to where to buy them or what ingredients make up the product. I am also not a spokesperson for any company. Food Maven is a blog I created for fun where I can post short profiles of products I personally have tried and enjoyed enough to share with the general public. I am not necessarily an expert on the products posted or interested in spending time debating their relative merits. What I post is generally either the only information I have about the product or what I felt was the most interesting or relevant.
If you have questions or concerns about a product, it is best to contact the company that makes the product directly. Again, I have no special connection to these companies and only know what any consumer would.
A quick note about questions:
Google is your friend! A lot of the more general questions I get (what's the address of that store you mentioned, where can I buy XXX, what are goji berries etc) can be answered via a quick Google search. While I try to answer these questions and will try to get back to you, I do get a tremendous amount of comments and e-mails each day, so it will quicker to look for the answer yourself.
You can look and see what store sells a certain product in your area just the same (better, even, because you know where you live and what stores you like to shop in) as I can. I frequently travel and purchase new products to share with you all over the East Coast and frankly I don't always remember where I tried or bought something. I also might try something many months before I post about it which makes it even more difficult to remember exactly what restaurant or store I found it in.
Most companies have a website and when possible I link to it so you can click through for further information, use their retail locator, shop at their online store or contact the company directly about their products or where to buy them.
You can also call around to your local stores (as I do!) for help in locating specific items. If they don't currently carry it, many stores will special order a product for you. While I do like to help, it can be a bit much to respond to each and every "where did you buy this" question when you can find the answer in less time then it takes me to respond.

One fun thing was that instead of french fries, they serve tater tots, which I don't think I've had since grade school.
So, would I go back? I would, but I think I'd try a different sandwich. It is a good place to relax and talk with friends and the waitress wasn't too obvious in her attempts to get us to move on when we were done eating. It also wasn't too crowded, there was at least one large table free the whole time we were there, which meant it wasn't too noisy.
