End of another week, let's lighten the mood and talk about something that is not politics. Here in Canada it's bitterly cold and I could do with some warmth, some happy in my tummy. I'm thinking about soup. Tomato, chicken-noodle, broccoli-cheddar, roasted squash, whatever it is, share your recipes with MetaFilter. Feel free to also talk about your favorite store-bought ready made soup. Or maybe it's a memory of a really good soup a loved one made for you. Whether it's a broth, bisque, consomme, or chowder, I want to talk about soup. Also,a gentle remember to be kind to each other and take care of yourself.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter – Euro Time Shift Edition! I'm filling in for Eyebrows to ask you to unloose your Proust and share what special dishes (or beverages) invoke vivid memories and take you back to a different time and/or place. [more inside]
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, theora55 wants to know "what foods people love that are local. For instance, Columbus, Ohio, has sauerkraut balls, which are hella tasty, also, the jokes write themselves, albeit badly." [more inside]
It's Thanksgiving in America, a day to give thanks, spend time with family, friends, & loved ones and share a warm meal. 2018 has not always been the most easy of years to live through, I thought it'd be nice to have a place to share thanks, to acknowledge that we made it another year on this planet, that we did it together. I'm thankful for my family, my friends, my partner, and all of you. I'm thankful that MetaFilter exists. Cheers.
Wordshore wants to know, as temperatures drop and nights lengthen in the Northern Hemisphere, with the opposite happening in the Southern half, what treats (not just food) of the season are you most looking forward to, or enjoying now? [more inside]
I've gotten enough recipes to make this doc worth sharing. It can be found directly on Google Docs as well as through the wiki. Please let me know if any changes, additions, or corrections need to be made!
Let's lighten the mood. It's the end of the week and I want to hear about something fun and not about politics. Tell me about a really awesome snack/food you just ate. What you eating?
There have been several posts over the past few years of folks wanting to create a Mefi cookbook. In the spirit of building community I thought I would start actually collecting recipes that people had posted with the intention of sharing for the book. [more inside]
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! I'm a little slow to post this week because MY AIR CONDITIONING DIED so there was all the drama of working over a hot computer in 90 degree heat while waiting for the repair guy. ANYWAY, not that my house is cooling back off, I desperately want to know your favorite hot-weather recipes -- things that taste good in the heat, or things that you don't need to turn on the stove for, or things that just taste like summer. Go!
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I want to know your favorite unusual comfort foods, because winter makes me hungry! [more inside]
It is the time for feasting, which means it is the time for recipes! We have no other outlet for our dark perversions, so let's do it here. Oh, such recipes we should all share... here's mine for Maple Bacon Dirt Rockets! [more inside]
In the middle of a year-end personal accounting, I came across this MeTa post and wondered: Has there been any progress toward a community cookbook? I am happy to contribute to, or even help organize, such an enterprise. Anyone else?
There's no end to imagination in the kitchen. Given that the cookbook thread petered out over a week ago and the caramel sugar thread is currently making me wish I was in my kitchen, describe the best thing you have ever made. In pornographic detail. If you wish to add the recipe here, those that are working on "Can I Eat This?" can start up the book.
I believe that AskMe answers that are factually incorrect (and thus dangerous) should be deleted. [more inside]
The podcast for August was recorded on July 31st and covers the previous three weeks of the best things we liked on MeFi. It runs about 1hr 46min. [more inside]
I'm looking for threads on creating, purchasing for, cooking weekly menus. I know there are a ton of them on ask.mefi, but I can't seem to come up with the right terms to find them. Can anyone point me to some? I accept that I am a searchtard.

Odd callout: Are people really uncreative that they can't figure out what to add to their grilled cheese sandwich? Its chatfilter. Its beyond chatfilter... Its asking if we can write every itteration of cheese+bread+some special ingredient down. Plus, this has been covered before. Seriously, do we need to overthink a plate of cheese, bread, and butter a second time because someone can't search?
A while back there was a post on Metafilter, though it could have been on Ask, about the idea/theory/game where you can name any three foods, and two of the three possible pairings taste good together, but the third just doesn't work. I think there was a bit of a side argument about whether pickles tasted good on peanut butter sandwiches. I've exhausted my Google-fu. Does anyone remember this/can someone point me to it, or was I imagining it?
savingadvice is a new user who showed up in response to Eating Well On $1 A Day. That's five days worth of food, folks.
Some of you might remember this post about Talula's Table, the restaurant in Chester County, PA, that has a one-year wait for reservations. Earlier this year, Aimee Olexy and Brian Sikora, the husband and wife team behind Talula's, filed for divorce. Philly food critic Craig LaBan has a bittersweet article about the end of their marriage, and how Aimee and the staff at Talula's are soldiering on.

Maybe I'm doing it wrong with regard to sidebar nominations, but this thread is nothing but amazing and accessible tips on kicking ass at cooking and it is making me exceptionally hungry.

I'm sure someone has asked this before, but how about creating a RecipeFilter™? [more inside]
AskMe is quickly turning into my favorite food resource of all time. It's a vast treasure trove of practical, easy to make recipes and good food-related advice shared by regular folks, not food writers or even, necessarily, hardcore foodies. Can we have a thread consolidating the favorite/most useful recipes and advice AskMe has produced? [more inside]
PositiveFeedbackCalloutFilter:This question is why I love Metafilter. To me, it has all the makings of a classic AskMe. An honest query about an obscure topic, multiple knowledgeable responses, an offer to experiment, and an idea for lunch tomorrow!
ChatFilter? I'm brainstorming a novelty recipe book for a friend. Meh.
MeFi swap for food? Zpousman asked about it in the moving thread from the gentleman in NYC whose lovely wife misses her home. I am sending a modest care package to the South and have been offered something southern in return - and I don't even know what's down there, let alone crave anything from there. Does someone terribly miss something that can be obtained in Florida? Grumblebee? Are Mrs Grumble's GooGoo Cluster needs met? In my fantasy, someone in upstate NY is dying for something Southern and then turns around and sends me cookies from the Ithaca Bakery.
