Yes we have no praline cookies
Albuquerque's Frontier Restaurant ditched their flavored sugar slabs.

I dropped into the Frontier this morning for the express purpose of purchasing a pile of their praline cookies. I once had a room mate who subsisted on these marvels of the culinary world, and soon found myself buying them by the dozen. It's obviously been some time since I had one (or twenty) since Frontier hasn't made the cookies in over a year! Sigh. I got a sweet roll instead but ended up giving it away. I did treat myself to a cup of their fresh-squeezed orange juice, leading me to ponder one of the many legends surrounding the Frontier: do they really add Tang to the orange juice?
Perhaps I'll add a category to the "anything we forgot" section in Alibi's 2012 Best of Burque Restaurants poll: Most Missed Cookie in Albuquerque. Voting ends September Fourth at high noon. Vote Now!

Shopping at Talin is an adventure. There are so many items I’ve never seen before—especially produce—that I often buy fruit identified only by the label on the bin. When I get home, I look it up in The Cook’s Thesaurus: foodsubs.com.
