Non-alcoholic cocktails don’t have to be a bummer. Seriously, I mean that. And there are a lot of compelling reasons to enjoy them over their boozy counterpoints. For example, if you’re pregnant, if you’re attempting to improve your health overall, or, if, you’re twelve years old ;)…Having something special to drink at the end of

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] In my heart, this should go without saying, but Carr’s Whole Wheat Crackers are the best crackers in the universe. They’re hearty and thick, with a grainy crunch and flavor that’s nutty and bright, almost tangy, plus a subtle sweetness to offset savory bites, like olives or cheese. While I’m more than

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] I met my first pair of tweezers in a restaurant filled with foams and gels and rotary evaporators. My official title was chef de partie, but it would be more accurate to say that I was head of the ice program. I spent hours working out of the freezer, making perfect coins

pin it!pin it!pin it!pin it! Because I love you all so very much, we’re going heavy on the carbs two weeks in a row. We eat pasta twice a week usually. Sometimes we’re really virtuous and do the lentil-based “sedanini” from Trader Joe’s and other times, only the all white flour stuff will do. I

tomato bread + a bit about spain

Before we had kids — you know, when we got to do whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted, or so it seems in glowy hindsight — we went on vacation whenever we found an intersection of cheap airfare and unused vacation time. Then (and I bet this isn’t an unfamiliar story) we had a kid

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] Politicians are often criticized for toeing the party line even when they must know their stated position is wrong. I’d like to think I’m above that, but alas: I, too, in my own little world of recipes, can be guilty of it. For starters, I haven’t been fully honest with you about

17 Apple Recipes You’ll Fall For

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik, Emily and Matt Clifton, J. Kenji López-Alt] It’s easy to see the changing of the seasons just by looking at the fruit vendors at your local market. This is time of year when peaches, cherries, and strawberries fade away and are replaced by pears, persimmons, and—of course—apples. As a kid I always

Blender dressings are the best. They typically have a short list of ingredients, and come together in a whirl and blitz of the blender. The most important thing about them? They’re not just for salads. You can use these dressings on grain bowls, inside spring rolls, spread on sandwiches, and spooned onto tacos. You know

BraveTart: How to Make Homemade Fig Newtons

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] Along with homemade Oreos, DIY Fig Newtons were among the first recipes I ever tackled on Serious Eats. But that was some six years ago, and I’ve learned a lot about recipe development since then. Namely, how to make a dough that’s a lot easier to handle outside of a professional kitchen.

One-Pot Lamb and Spinach Meatballs with Orzo

How do you fair with this transition of seasons?  September has always felt like the most clunky month of the year to me.  It’s a time when I need to really pay attention to my feet on the ground- walking through the world with purpose because my brain wants to float on up. Also, I’m

MEXI CAULIFLOWER RICE STUFFED PEPPERS

I’m doing what I swore I would never do and cooking three versions of one meal. Hugh has been doing a super zero sugar/carb/happiness diet and my kids already require limitations because, well, they’re toddlery, so cooking has not been that fun lately. I don’t have a big enough ego to keep from you that I’ve

[Photographs: Vicky Wasik] Getting into breadmaking is a serious endeavor—recipes are often multi-hour processes and require a bunch of measuring, kneading, and waiting for dough to rise. I love eating bread, but baking it is just a little beyond my patience. Quick breads, on the other hand, are much more approachable. Made without yeast, they

Veg Ramen and Four Seasons of Ideas

Today we’re going to tackle veg ramen. Slurping noodles from a big bowl of feisty, aromatic broth is hard to beat, and I wanted to share how great ramen bowls can come together relatively easily, year round. Ramen is incredibly versatile, and I play fast and loose with the concept overall. You have the ability
