There’s just something about a pig in a blanket. Maybe it’s because they make us feel like we’re 8-years-old again. Maybe they remind us of the BEST SUMMER EVER when we were teenagers. Regardless. I’ve seen these little babies totally delight some of my hard-core foodie friends. I’m talking about my gourmet-est, food snobbiest [...]
Grab a fork and put on your fat pants. This is one of my favorite, super indulgent, weeknight chicken dishes. I’m the first one to admit that this will never be called health food. It’s chicken fried in bacon fat, candied in maple syrup, then doused with whiskey. And it’s absolutely delicious. Just don’t eat [...]
Forget candy, this is my kind of treat. A friend sent me the link from someone’s Facebook page, and I knew I had to try them right away. So simple. So delicious. Sweet. Salty. Fragrant with sage and sticky with maple syrup. These little babies hit all the right buttons with me. You can prep [...]
Pssssst, hey you! Your goose is cooked! Mwahahahahahaha. Wait. Make that geese. I’ve been waiting for weeks to be able to say that. (It’s the little things. Such a dork, I know.) This is my first experience cooking goose. I’m super excited about how they came out. Let me tell you all about it and [...]

OK, so that’s sort of a trick title. “How to Reheat King Crab” would be more accurate. In the U.S., almost all the King Crab you’ll find in stores is already cooked. (It’s caught, cooked, then blast frozen to preserve its fresh taste.) This one is more method than actual recipe. The goal is to [...]
See, I do eat vegetables. (Granted, they’re almost always wrapped in some kind of pork product, but still.) Asparagus, even! Some folks would say it’s not possible. When I was a kid, I hated asparagus so much that I used to hide it behind the couch. True story. Oh, how times have changed. So, this [...]
Prime Rib: It’s not just for Christmas dinner. I’ll make this whenever I can get my paws on one at a good price (or the rare super sale). It’s a great excuse to have a party. In fact, if you’re sick of ham on Easter, consider giving Roast Beast it’s day in the (springtime) sun. This is a restaurant technique that’s practically guaranteed to produce a moist, juicy, evenly cooked roast beast. And it couldn’t be simpler.
What’s the difference between brown eggs and white eggs? Ask your grandmother, and I almost guarantee that she’ll make a strong case for one—or the other. But honestly? Aside from shell color, there’s not really much difference, at least when it comes to cooking. Nutritionally, all eggs are created (almost) equal. When a recipe calls [...]
I’m pretty sure I’d be tempted to eat almost anything if you wrapped it in bacon or prosciutto. This is my take on the classic appetizer, bacon wrapped scallops. This recipe swaps in prosciutto, bacon’s paper thin, salty cousin, which practically guarantees that your scallops will always come out of the oven wearing a crisp little coat.
