No-Knead Bread courtesy of Sullivan Street Bakery

Here's a recipe that I cannot take credit for, but "kneads" to be part of your baking repertoire.  Making bread is usually a painstaking and messy process, but thanks to Jim Lahey at the Sullivan Street Bakery it is now something that any (and I mean any) home cook can easily pull off.  This bread is unbelievably…

Soupe l'oignon au gratin flambé

Soupe l'oignon au gratin flambé (Baked and flamed French Onion Soup)

There is the gender distinction of the feminine Soupe from the common accents found upon the 'a' (à) and 'e' (gratiné), and the abbreviated determiner (l'). And then, my favorite, the word oignon itself, which gave a new use for my polyglot tongue of exaggerated French accents. Impressive, yes; delicious, you have no idea. I had fun with this robust plat principal.… Continue

Cachapas de Venezuela (Corn cakes from Venezuela)

I love these corn cakes, they are sooooo good, well at least I think so. These are usually served with cheese or cream cheese, but I like them plain right out of the grill ...well ok, a little butter and syrup! The original Cachapas are basically made with just fresh grated corn kernels, a little salt, lard and sugar, but this version recipe is just as good!

NOTE: Please keep in mind the batter for this recipe must be creamy and thick, if it's to… Continue

Vegan Chocolate Swirl Pancakes

Although I am vegetarian, I don't usually go all-vegan, but I found an egg- and dairy-free pancake recipe on about.com while I was looking for a simple alternative to a box of Bisquick. I tweaked it a little, as suggested by some of the comments. We usually add chocolate chips to pancakes in our apartment, but we were out of those, and most of them include milk anyway. Then I remembered reading that most chocolate syrup is "accidentally" vegan… Continue

Cheesy Hamburger Macaroni

I have a confession to make. I love Hamburger Helper. Especially the Cheeseburger Macaroni kind. It's so easy to put together, and so, so cheesy. Inspired by my favorite boxed pasta meal, I decided to try to put together a version of my own. The cheese sauce is modified from a Parmesan cream sauce recipe, and everything else just came together. This cheesy hamburger macaroni boasts fewer preservatives and a more authentic cheese flavor than… Continue

How to Grill the Perfect Steak

There are upsides and downsides to grilling steaks outdoors, whether it’s over charcoal, wood, or an open flame. Let’s start with the positives.

The primary reason to grill outdoors is flavor, especially when using either charcoal or wood as your fuel of choice. The smoke they create permeates anything sitting atop the grill, giving your food a quality that cannot be described with words.

But steaks also taste great when they’re cooked on a gas… Continue

How to Make Southern Fried Chicken

I'll bet that when you think of "comfort foods," many of the dishes that come to mind are ones associated with the down-home style of southern cooking. Meals such as chicken-fried steak, biscuits and gravy, macaroni and cheese, and meatloaf are perfect examples.

But in my opinion, there is one southern comfort food that's at the head of the class. I'm talking about fried chicken. And if you're as big a fan as I am, you'll definitely want to read… Continue
