Elana Lepkowski 2 comments

This bottled cocktail was inspired by the flavor of ballpark peanuts. The touch of salt works as a great balance to the sweet and savory roasted nuts, which are quickly infused in rye whiskey. More

Cucumber and Yogurt Soup With Walnuts and Rose Petals From 'A Change of Appetite'

Maggie Mariolis 1 comment

You hear cucumber-yogurt soup, and you might think of slim-waisted, still-hungry women sipping delicate spoonfuls. Diana Henry's version in A Change of Appetite is less 'ladies who lunch' and more Elaine Stritch singing "Ladies Who Lunch:" ballsy, dynamic, and unexpectedly complex. More

Soft Bread Salami Rolls

Ideas in Food 12 comments

These soft rolls are great for sandwiches. They have a moist, tender crumb and thin, crisp exterior. Most of the time spent here is just letting the yeast do it's thing. These rolls are a great way to ease into bread baking, easily mixed in a standing mixer and shaped by hand. More

Roasted Tomatoes and Lentils With Dukka-Crumbed Eggs From 'A Change of Appetite'

Maggie Mariolis 2 comments

There's a reason oozing, soft-cooked eggs are arguably overused in food styling. That glistening ovum gold is like icing dripping down a cake, and anything underneath it is transformed into something richer, tastier, and more appealing. I would have been sold on this recipe from Diana Henry's new A Change of Appetite without that lusty addition, given my fondness for lentils in vinaigrette, but that broken yolk sealed the deal.

Japanese Ginger and Garlic Chicken With Smashed Cucumber From 'A Change of Appetite'

Maggie Mariolis 1 comment

This recipe, from Diana Henry's new cookbook, A Change of Appetite, is not for the faint of heart. A garlicky, slightly sweet marinade with a whopping two-thirds of a cup of spicy grated ginger does not leave the chicken thighs wanting for any flavor, I'll tell you that. More

Rich Red Plum Jam

Jennifer Latham 1 comment

This is a beautiful jewel-red jam with a perfect balance of sweet and tart. Putting half of the fruit through a food mill and leaving the other half in quarters makes for a rustic textured jam. An overnight maceration gives you a head-start on the jamming process. It's a great jam to pair with fresh, creamy cow's milk cheeses like ricotta. More

Stoned Tart From 'Sweet and Vicious'

Emma Kobolakis Post a comment

What seems like a simple tart is so much more, thanks to the cleverness of this recipe from Libbie Summers' new cookbook, Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude. It bakes up beautifully, a layer of pistachio cream mingling with juice from the mixed selection of fresh fruit. A fat scoop of vanilla ice cream is all that's needed for a finishing touch. More

Maggie Mariolis 2 comments

In this recipe from her new cookbook, A Change of Appetite, Diana Henry elevates the classic caprese combo of mozzarella, tomato, and basil with the addition of nectarine. The ripe fruit adds a juicy sweetness that I never realized was missing. Dressed with just olive oil and white balsamic, every element shows at its best. So simple, so smart. More

Habanero Carrot Cake From 'Sweet and Vicious'

Emma Kobolakis 2 comments

If the fire-breathing dragon wasn't hint enough, one bite will prove this cake is packing heat. In her recently released cookbook, Sweet and Vicious: Baking with Attitude, Libbie Summers stirs hot pepper extract into a lightly spicy batter, and spikes the cream cheese frosting with spiced pecans. The fruitiness of the pepper works well with the carrot-heavy batter, further enhanced by traditional cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves. More
