Changing Times and Two Boots

Danielle Oteriby Danielle Oteri April 28, 2014

“This realization hit me in the gut two months ago as I sat in on a torn vinyl bench at Two Boots Pizzeria on Greenwich Avenue, watching St. Vincent’s Hospital being torn apart to be replaced by another round of luxury condos. New York is the New World capital of pizza, making it ever more ironic that Two Boots’ Louisiana-inspired pies are testament to a more community-minded city. “

Hide Your Processed Cheese Slices

Casey Barberby Casey Barber April 24, 2014

“If I like it, I’ll happily eat it, watch it, listen to it, and tell you about it, with one notable exception: I secretly sneak processed cheese slices every chance I get.”

Tapping In with a Pineapple-Chile Hefeweizen Cocktail

Casey Barberby Casey Barber April 21, 2014

“And while beer on its own is just dandy, the particular flavor profile of the wheat ale family makes it a prime candidate for goosing up in a beer cocktail. The beer’s de facto pairing is a lemon or orange wedge to complement the spicy notes of clove, coriander, and nutmeg and the sweet honey undertones in the brew.”

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.”

The Great Caper Caper! My Caper Obsession Yields An Addictively Briny Tuna Salad

Rebecca Peters-Goldenby Rebecca Peters-Golden April 10, 2014

“This recipe has completely invigorated tuna salad for me. While you can still stick it on a sandwich or salad, it’s actually flavorful enough that I have no problem eating it on its own, something I’d never do with plain old tuna + mayo.”

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. It’s still most definitely a knife-and-fork operation, at least for the first half of each slice, but you won’t need to unhinge your jaw to get through it.”

A Sign of Spring: French Leek and Onion Soup

Casey Barberby Casey Barber April 3, 2014

“It’s just French soup à l’oignon, slow-simmered until it gives up the goods, but it really does gain more sweetness and a fuller flavor when verdant leeks enter the picture.”

Krusty Burgers and Flaming Moes: Simpsons Food and Drink at Universal Studios

Casey Barberby Casey Barber March 31, 2014

“The time spent exploring the edible options is really the best way to get the flavor of the Simpsons’ little corner of the world. It may not be the best. food. ever., but stopping to share a drink or a snack lets you see more of the details that make Springfield so well-defined.”

Eating My Words: To the Lighthouse’s Boeuf en Daube

Rebecca Peters-Goldenby Rebecca Peters-Golden March 24, 2014

To the Lighthouse is a book about vision: visions of the past, perception of the present, artistic visions. And, clearly, culinary vision, because this stew is freaking delicious. Some recipes (Julia Child’s, for example) scent Boeuf en Daube with cinnamon, orange, and cloves, but I prefer a more Provençal flavor signature, with olives and capers, and I add bacon and brandy to give it a mellow smokiness.”

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.”
