We used fresh here, but you could use dried. If using dried herbs though, be sparing. Dried herbs have a much more concentrated flavor than fresh.
We got those at the Whole Foods on P St. Let us know if you try this dish!

Also, in case you haven't seen it, the New York Times had a nice "36 Hours In..." about Tulum back in November. It mentions both Hartwood and Chamico's. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/09/travel/things-to-do-in-36-hours-in-tulum-mexico.html?_r=0
That's so great! Hartwood would be plenty fine for an 11 year old! (Assuming you wouldn't hang around for a 2-hour wait...). It's "romantic" in the sense that it's candles and so forth in a beautiful setting. But not, like, "couples only" or anything like that. One other place that we didn't mention: Zamas. It's another beachside cafe with gorgeous views, but it would be especially good for a kid. You'll have to let us know where all you go, and how your trip is!

Fine Cooking (February/March 2014) Months and months ago, while on a trip to New York City, we dropped into Buvette for dinner. The meal itself, enjoyed at a cramped but cozy little table, was lovely. But we were especially enamored... Continue reading

We specifically checked out tea ahead of time to make sure it wasn't sweetened. No sweetener was listed in the ingredients. Are you asking if you can totally omit the orange juice? We wouldn't suggest that. It adds a nice base of flavor. But perhaps you could steep the tea in a mixture of 2 cups of OJ and 1 cup of water.
Sally? Is there something you need to confess? Just kidding -- thanks for the link!

You're right, Katie -- That is a hefty amount of oil. You should be A-OK with the PAM. Maybe just keep an eye on this while it cooks. If it starts burning or browning before it's had a chance to get tender, you could just toss it in a little more PAM.

A Bitten Word Recipe We know, we know. Kale Salad. It's ubiquitous. It's overdone. And we've already hit "peak kale." But at our house, kale salad remains a staple. Sure, we're ardent kale fans, but really it's just the accessory... Continue reading

That's a great tip! We should have soaked ours longer. Thanks Karen!
You should be totally fine! (We really think ours may have been closer to 5 years old...)
Yes, definitely a shame! We've had such good stuff from Rancho Gordo in the past. They're the best.

Well said, Ann! And yes to the unseasoned rice vinegar -- so many of the flavored rice vinegars we've seen are heavily sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. It's worth scouting out (or ordering) the plain unseasoned variety.
