Homemade Instant Coffee Mix: You Can Do It in Your Sleep

Casey Barberby Casey Barber April 14, 2014

“No matter how you like to store and serve your emergency coffee—just creamer for those mornings when you’ve still got beans to grind in the house, a pre-made mix for super-desperate days, or single servings to take to motels, campgrounds, beach houses, or other places where neither fresh coffee nor milk can be found—I’ve got a solution for you.”

Lou Malnati’s: The Golden Mean of Chicago Deep Dish

Casey Barberby Casey Barber April 7, 2014

“The layers of a Lou Malnati’s pie are calibrated. Nothing gets piled too high; each bite is satisfying and you can get through two slices without feeling like you’ll need to roll yourself out of the room.

Chocolate Cornflake Cookies: Not Just for Cabin Fever

Casey Barberby Casey Barber March 17, 2014

“Without the cornflake crunchies, the cookies would be merely one-dimensional; with them, they pop into 3D. Unsurprisingly enough, the butterscotch chips tasted just as “fresh” as they day I bought them, their slightly cloying sweetness balanced by the savory crunch of the cornflakes and the gooey caramelization of the melted marshmallows inside each soft cookie.”

Ale Flip and Other Forgotten Drinks of Colonial New England

Casey Barberby Casey Barber March 13, 2014

“Bartenders have been bestowing memorable names upon their concoctions for centuries, like the mimbo, stone-fence, sangaree, and cherry bounce. The flip was the gimlet or Cosmo of its day: an inescapable fixture on every 18th-century bar menu.”
