How to Cook Perfect White Rice on the Stove

Let me get this out of the way right now: I could live on rice. Some people love pasta (meh). Some people love bread. I love rice. Always have. I've had so many folks ask me about...

3-Ingredient Coconut Ice Cream (Vegan, No Cook & Totally Amazing)

OK, so you guys know me: I'm all about butter, heavy cream, meat, and bacon. But ever since I wrote my ice cream cookbook, Slushed!, people have been asking me about making vegan ice cream....

How to Cook King Crab

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,...

Dutch Oven Battle: Lodge vs. Le Creuset

Let me start by saying: This was not a scientific experiment. This was one little mouse in her kitchen with 2 pots and 8 lbs. of short ribs. If you want science, check out Cook's...

Peep Topiary (Plus Other Easter Table Top Decorating Ideas)

I've always had an active imagination. I am that auntie who likes to tell your kids stories. If you know me, you know what I'm talking about. And if you have kids under five, chances...

Restaurant-Style Prime Rib Roast

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.

Crispy Fried Goat Cheese

Be still my heart. I think I would eat these every day if I could. It's definitely my new favorite munchy type thing. These h'ors d'oeuvres are really easy to throw together on the fly. The outside crust is unbelievably crunchy and flavorful. The inside cheese is warm, creamy, and really smooth. The combination makes for a killer app.

Drunken Coffee Jello Squares

OK, kids: This is coffee. In solid form. It's been sweetened with condensed milk and booze-ified with a healthy dose of Kahlua—then rubberized into a blissful, cocktail-hour finger food thanks to the magic of gelatin. Now, you have to like Jello, or Jello-like food, for this to work. If you do, you're in for a treat.

Cheese Pinwheel Rolls

To make these rolls, spread pizza dough liberally with melted butter, sprinkle it with cheese and spices, roll it up like a stromboli—then slice and bake like a pan of cinnamon buns.

Homemade Sandwich Bread

Making your own bread is also really easy to do. It takes a few hours to make bread from start to finish, but most of that is for the actual rising and baking. There's very little real hands-on time. This recipe makes two one-pound (i.e. standard size) loaves of bread.
