Whole Orange Bundt Cake

So much of our kitchen experience involves throwing parts of food into the trashcan, right?  I hate that part.  Because I hate it, I have an entire bag full of onion tops and skins in my freezer for a future vegetable or chicken stock that will happen as soon as I need that freezer space

[Illustrations: Tram Nguyen] Biscuits and Gravy–flavored Lay’s may have been the first bag of novelty potato chips I really hunted. I’m not going to say exactly how many stores I went to in search of a bag; all I’ll say is that it was more than one and fewer than five, and part of that

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik, J. Kenji López-Alt] I spent a lot of my life intimidated by baking—I’d happily make elaborate breakfasts of eggs and potatoes and the like, but when it came to baked goods I left it to the professionals. Eventually I got over my fear, though, and realized what I had been missing. Not

Whether you’re looking for an impressive starter or simply just love dishes packed full of flavour, you’re gonna love this recipe I created recently for Taste Magazine. Making vegetables the star I’ve roasted beautiful baby carrots in an orange/honey mixture until sticky and golden. Whipped feta brings a touch of salt, while lurid pink (naturally

Instant Pot Dynamite Cold Tonic

If you need to jolt a cold out of your body with brute force, you might consider starting here. This head-clearing, sniffle-blasting tonic is the color of Tang, with flavor like a stick of ginger dynamite. It’s a nuclear version of the Honey-Turmeric Tonic in the Coco Morante Essential Instant Pot Cookbook – hydrating, aromatic,

Let It Be Sunday, 154!

The real truth is, I’ve just eaten far more cookies than I need and I’m sitting on the couch watching what is commonly known as the BEST episode of The Office EVER:  Dinner Party – Season 4, Episode 9.  It’s some of the best television there is and ever was, proving to be just the

Shredded Jackfruit Burritos (Vegan)

I suspect the most notable aspect of this burrito is the use of jackfruit. My guess is it might be an ingredient you’re either completely onboard with, or not at all. Either way, mark my word, shredded jackfruit is a fascinating ingredient. People trying to reduce or eliminate meat from their diet tend to love

According to my calendar, on December 19th I ostensibly signed special ordered books at The Strand and then took my two year-old to a holiday party, but I know the truth, which is that I was actually reading this hilarious piece on Bon Appetit from Alex Delany in which he complains that winter cocktails are

Caramelized Endive and Blue Cheese Tart

When I first heard about tarte Tatin, nothing sounded better to me. What first seems like way too many apples packed into a skillet, then caramelized and baked under a blanket of buttery pastry, then turned out and served warm, became one of my favorite desserts. I’ve had recipes for them in several of my books,

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] Cream pies are an American tradition dating back to the early 1800s, when they were invariably served in a flaky pastry crust and topped with meringue—the eponymous “cream” referred to the dairy in their custard filling. I’ve gone over the logic behind that convention before, in my explanation of why I top

White Bean, Kale, and Sausage Soup

Making soup means you have some time.  Some time and some fire.   Question… what’s going on with this Instant Pot? I’m not interested.  I like the time it takes a soup to simmer and soften.  Isn’t that time enough to have a glass of wine in the shower?  Isn’t it one of life’s great

Here are just a couple of the pearls of wisdom that came out of our in-depth conversation: “What I do try to say to

NUT’NOLA

Months ago, I may have mentioned that Hugh was doing the ketogenic diet? Surely you’ve heard of it. Most of the cookbooks at my local Costco are keto books so you know it’s mainstream. He humored me and went off it for the holidays and is back to it these days. I refuse to make

Curried Tomato Tortellini Soup

I installed the Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen app on my phone last year, and it was a real eye opener for a few reasons. The app is actually just a simple checklist of ingredients to incorporate in your daily diet – ideally, every day. Beans, berries, spices, nuts, greens, etc. It’s actually not simple. The
