These bars are super easy to prepare and the ratio of graham cracker crust to cheesecake filling is much more favorable than in regular cheesecake.

These easy to prepare bars are perfect for those who love cheesecake but hate the prospect of fussing around with a water bath.
Is a dive bar defined by smell alone?
The food at Post Office, a whiskey bar in Williamsburg that makes a mean cocktail, is comfort-food simple but surprisingly good, and the bar's crowd is much more civilized than many of its neighbors.
I'd arrived at Barrelhouse Flat around 4 p.m. that afternoon. Owner Stephen Cole had graciously granted my request to shadow the staff during their prep, service, and closing, with the goal of coming away with an unfettered look at what makes the place tick.
I like to play this game where I imagine what I would have done if I had been born in a different time or place. For example, if I had been born in medieval times, would I still be so interested in food? Would I have sat at the table, complaining that someone had under-seasoned the boar or overcooked the mutton pie?
These bars taste like a cross between a chocolate chip and peanut butter cookie. When preparing the batter, be sure to cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugar until light and very fluffy. This step helps the bars to bake...
These oat based bars are also filled with walnuts, apricots and coconut. They make a healthy, portable breakfast.
Just imagine if a cookie and a candy bar fell in love and had a baby. Pretty sweet, right? Well, The Treats Truck's Super-Duper Bars are that sugary little cookie-bar baby. Starting out with a layer of graham cracker crumbs, any combination of chocolate, coconut, nuts, peanut butter, butterscotch, or dried fruit is piled on top. When you're about to finish your candy layering a can of sweetened condensed milk is poured over the cookie-bar, and the final layer of sweets is sprinkled on. Into the oven for just shy of thirty minutes, the sweetened condensed milk acts as the glue that keeps this cookie together, oozing down into the layers and melding all of those great candy layers.
You can go ingredient-crazy with these Super-Duper Bars as long as you start out with a graham cracker base and remember to finish up with sweetened condensed milk before adding your last layer of candy goodness.
I drink an Old Fashioned at Clover Club in Brooklyn, and drink Coronas while eating $1 tacos on the porch at The Sire in Riverside, California. I love both places for very different reasons; the only thing they have in common is that they have successfully crossed the boundary that separates places that merely sell drinks from what can generally be termed a good bar.
Although fig bars are standard American fare, fig-filled cookies are also very traditional in Sicily, where they are called cucidati. I've decided to merge the two and make a fig bar that is shaped like the industrially-made one, but has some typical Sicilian seasonings in it for extra flavor.
Wild Rise is making what so far seems to be really promising pizza. Really tasty pizza. All in a laid-back atmosphere. It almost seems an afterthought, something you'd order while drinking. That it is, of course, but it's also pizza worth seeking out on its own.
Summer technically isn't quite over yet and I'm doing my best to cram in a last hurrah before September 23rd rolls around and I have to make peace with apples and pumpkins, shorter days and longer nights. There are few desserts as closely bonded to summer memories as s'mores and this recipe gives you all the toasty tastiness you remember from camp—without the fire pit.
The marshmallows are a revised version of this practically instant-setting marshmallow recipe from Peeps Week '09. This recipe allows just enough time to spread in the pan before setting.
Tucked into a narrow stretch of Park Avenue, where the Metro North Railroad disappears underground, is where you'll find Earl's Beer & Cheese. The menu at Earl's changes seasonally, and currently features dishes like Mac and Cheese, Asian Gnocchi topped with cheese fries, and Earl's Eggo, a gourmet waffle with cheddar. You can wash down your food with any of the craft brews on tap or in cans; Earl's Beer & Cheese takes its name seriously. But the Mac & Cheese features shredded chicken, the gnocchi has ground beef, and that waffle is topped with foie gras and bacon along with those cheese fries. What is there for vegetarians?
Pies and tarts and crumbles are great, but if you're headed to the beach or the park or even just a huge cookout, you don't want to bring out plates and serving spoons; you want something that can be gobbled up straight from the platter. So we've rounded up some grabbable, snackable treats for your holiday picnic basket—no refrigeration or forks required. Enjoy!
Part beer bar, part beer store, the newly opened Breukelen Bier Merchants puts the art of the craft brew on center stage here in Williamsburg. It's easy to lose track of time in a tasting room that sells more than 500 different bottles and 16 craft beers on tap, so make sure to temper all that beer drinking with some bar bites from their menu.
