Question: On the episode of Grounded For Life entitled "Relax," the actress who plays the mother was making dinner, with a side dish which I believe she called "Oose Goose." I have searched everywhere for a recipe for this dish. Could you please tell me what it is and where I can find out about this uncommon dish? I also heard the same dish mentioned in the movie Sweet November. Thank you. Betty, Pensacola, Fla.
Televisionary: You mean couscous? A staple of North African eating, it's made from semolina (the ground wheat that's also the basis for most pasta). It's often mixed with meat, vegetables or both and flavored with various spices. It's good stuff, and you should be able to find recipes for it in any decent cookbook. (And, yes, I know this is only tangentially related to TV, but give me a break, people how often do I get to answer cooking questions?)
