Weekend Cook and Tell Round Up: Spring Pasta

It's Wednesday, and that means it is time once again for the Weekend Cook and Tell Round Up. This week's inspiration was simple: Make a pasta using some of the delicious spring vegetables that are in season. As usual, we've gotten some great responses. Here are some of the highlights: Paula Maack made Strozzapreti Pasta with Radicchio, Pancetta and Walnuts. I love radicchio and make a pasta very similar to this all of the time. Dhorst took the classic combination of butter, sage, and Parmigiano Reggiano and added spring peas. Peas and sage? I have to try this. Cassaendra didn't have much luck finding artichokes but made a beautiful Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta Salad that she served alongside salmon filets.... More

Weekend Cook and Tell Round Up: Food Souvenirs

It's time once again for the Weekend Cook and Tell Round Up! Last week's theme was food souvenirs. The idea was to cook up something inspired by a meal that you had while on vacation. As usual we've gotten some great responses: Mepolo made pulled pork sandwiches inspired by a meal in Southwestern Tennessee. The pork was braised with apple juice and barbecue sauce, and served with a creamy slaw. According to mepolo the meal was a great success! Paula Maack recreated this refreshing cocktail that she had while on her honeymoon in Venice. It's a tasty sounding combination of prosecco, vodka, and lemon gelato. I'm definitely going to be mixing up of few of these over the summer. Maxcriden... More

Weekend Cook and Tell

This week we are starting a new interactive cooking project called Weekend Cook and Tell. Each Wednesday we'll scour the various food sections of national newspapers to find an article or recipe to inspire a weekend cooking project. We want all of you serious eaters to take this idea and run with it, use your culinary creativity to come up with variations on the weekly theme. We will be cooking along, too. This week we found a great piece in the New York Times about cooking with "off cuts," inexpensive, lesser known cuts of meat. Let's go out and buy an unfamiliar cut and make something delicious with it. Over the weekend we'll all discuss our recipes and experiences... More
