Almost Instant Yogurt Creme Brulee

Casey Barberby Casey Barber February 13, 2014

“While the texture is softer than your egg-filled creme brûlée, the smooth and tangy filling is a refreshing—and still happily sweet—counterpart to the rich and slightly bitter chocolate beneath.”

My Sherry Amour: The Rise of the London Sherry Bar

Irene Kopitovby Irene Kopitov February 10, 2014

“Once thought of as an antiquated and, to quote the locals, a “naff” dessert drink, sherry is starting to shed its dusty image, find its cool factor, and develop a devoted following around London.”

How to Get Heinz Ketchup Out of the Bottle (With Video)

Casey Barberby Casey Barber February 6, 2014

“To recap, don’t smack the flat bottom of the bottle. Don’t rap the embossed 57 with your knuckles. And for pete’s sake, don’t stick a knife up the bottle’s neck to try and break the seal—that just ends in a ketchupy mess.”

The Optimist in Atlanta Inspires Seafood Dreams

Casey Barberby Casey Barber February 3, 2014

“At home, made with bay scallops and bacon, and with cubes of celery root instead of the swath of creamy puree that the Optimist placed on the plate, the dish becomes incredibly versatile.”

Rip Into a Hot Dog at Rutt’s Hut in Clifton, NJ

Casey Barberby Casey Barber January 30, 2014

Rutt’s Hut is probably the most famous New Jersey hot dog joint serving the deep-fried dogs known in these parts as “rippers”—so-called for the casing’s tendency to split open when exposed to intense heat. (Hiram’s in Fort Lee is another survivor.) Non-hot dog fans: don’t knock it till you’ve tried the blistered, crackling exterior.”

Bottoms Up: Old-Fashioned Pancakes

Casey Barberby Casey Barber January 27, 2014

“The end result is a sweetly unexpected and distinctive variation on the traditional pancake breakfast that toes the line between old-fashioned and, well, Old-Fashioned. Note that I do not recommend drinking actual Old-Fashioneds with these pancakes unless you want to lay yourself out flat for the rest of the day.”

Two-Pan, Two-Hour Bolognese Sauce

Casey Barberby Casey Barber January 20, 2014

“utting a second pan on the range—my favorite All-Clad wide 3-quart saute pan—changed the game by letting me brown the meat separately. The vegetables get their own luxurious caramelizing bath in the cast iron dutch oven, while the beef, pork, and pancetta brown and crisp up oh so nicely in their own fat. When they finally meet up for a slow simmer, it’s a moment worth waiting for.”

Picky Fingers: Harvest Fruit Bake Finger Food

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor January 16, 2014

“For those of you struggling with your own mercurial bears, here’s a recipe that has been tried and true through some of Edward’s worst meal aversions. Depending on the age of your child, you might want to leave out some of the “harder” items such as rolled oats or raisins, but overall this recipe works for any of the finger food ages and can be altered at least a dozen ways.”

Caramelized Onion, Spinach, and Gruyere Tart + Whole-Grain Mornings Giveaway

Casey Barberby Casey Barber January 13, 2014

“While it would do splendidly as a brunch dish, the tart made its way (and then disappeared all too quickly from) our lunch table without a peep of complaint. Toasty, crunchy, and simple to make in bulk, this tart crust will be a staple in my cooking repertoire for years to come.”

Unsustainable Morals: How Farming Ruined My Diet

Guest Contributorby Guest Contributor January 9, 2014

“While my daughters were getting chubby from Eggos, I wanted to impress my fellow vegetarians with what I could do with local produce. It seemed taboo to admit what I fed my family in the privacy of our own kitchen, or that I suspected I wasn’t getting enough protein to fuel my 13-hour workdays.”
