Corn dogs are one of those great polarizing foods: Peeps either love ‘em or hate ‘em. Me? Call me a savage, but I need once like once or twice a year, usually in the thick of summer, right around Labor Day. They remind me of steamy August afternoons spent at town carnivals. Corn dogs. Cotton […]
Calling kids of all ages (and all you H.P. Lovecraft fans) out there! OK, so these are really silly. And I should note that I didn’t invent these little suckers. There’s a whole sub-culture dedicated to making cute food to put into Japanese-style bento box lunches, including hot dogs. (Check out the fabulous bento […]
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 […]
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.
This is, hands down, the most delicious thing I’ve made in a long time. And the most expensive. And the most time consuming. And the most primally … viscerally … carnivorously satisfying.
Based on Ina Garten’s fabulous recipe, these meat loaves pack huge comfort-food goodness in a small package. They’re a great thing to serve at a dinner party. I mean, come on: Who wouldn’t love a little meatloaf, made just for them?
It’s good to be back in the kitchen! (Here, have a giant platter of meat!) The last two weeks have been a whirlwind! Between baking dozens of practice tarts for Bon Appetit’s Holiday Bake-Off Party and making a kamikaze run to New York City to their Culinary Studios, I’m happy to be back at The […]beef, chili, garlic, roasting
Pot roast is stick-to-your-ribs, winter home cooking at its coziest. It’s also an economical way to feed a crowd when you’re on a budget. All you need is a big hunk of beef, an even bigger pot, a handful of ingredients, and a little patience.
This recipe is so easy, it’s kind of like cheating. I’m OK with that, though. (I’m all for fancy sauces and complicated meals. But there’s a definite time and a place for dishes like this.) It takes no time to slap together—then your oven does all the hard work.back ribs, beef, chili, garlic, ribs, roasting, scallion
