Dinner Tonight: Green Tomato Soup with Black Forest Ham

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 2 comments

Now I have at least one more great option for this under-loved vegetable. This recipe from Gourmet simmers them with some Black Forest ham and a whole bunch of scallions. The soup is chunky, relatively light, and a great showcase for the green tomato's bracing acidity. The secret weapon is the sour cream, which really pulls everything together, and helps add some much needed body. More

Dinner Tonight: Six-Spice Hanger Steak

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

I can't believe I've never made hanger steak before. While it's often referred to as a "cheaper cut," I usually can't find it for under $10 a pound. Also, a lot of recipes recommend a long marinade—something I can't indulge in often. Luckily, I found this recipe from Gourmet, which introduces a highly flavored dry rub and a very simple sauce. It can be made in 20 minutes or so. Not bad. More

Dinner Tonight: Broiled Cod with Lemon and Thyme

Serious Eats Blake Royer 6 comments

When cooking fish, I usually aim for lighter preparations without sauce, where the flavor of the fish comes through. But this quick lemon-thyme mayonnaise melts into the flesh to season it, keep it moist, and develop a mouthwatering golden brown crust on the top. More

Dinner Tonight: Curried Egg Salad

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

[Photographs: Nick Kindelsperger] Egg salad is usually a monochromatic affair thanks to the healthy helping (or, as some people may point out, unhealthy helping) of mayo. Now, I happen to have a soft spot for this style, especially when it's... More

Dinner Tonight: Spanish White Beans with Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

[Photograph: Nick Kindelsperger] I'm kind of addicted to this beans-and-greens combination. It's a concept that initially didn't make much sense to me. Wouldn't the result just be a mushy, messy, gray and green glob in a bowl? Nope—it's actually hearty... More

Cook the Book: Blackberry Upside-Down Cake

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 7 comments

Flip it onto a plate and remove the parchment to reveal the beautifully fruit-studded surface. The blackberries I used gave this cake an almost stained glass appearance, with the juices staining the cake purple-black to a light lavender color, it was gorgeous. Oh, and it tasted pretty incredible, too. Just sweet enough to be a perfect candidate for some à la mode action. More

To celebrate the first week of fall, I decided to break out the old Dutch oven and do some braising. Thumbing through the pages of Gourmet Today by Ruth Reichl and John Willoughby, I opted for Braised Short Ribs with... More

Cook the Book: Smoked Trout Spread

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

At the risk of sounding like a hypocrite, sometimes I enjoy the cocktail hour snacks that I have assembled before a dinner party more than the dinner itself. As a home cook I am incapable of making a simple dinner... More

Cooking from the Glossies: Creamed Broccoli with Parmesan

Serious Eats Grace Kang 3 comments

Creamed spinach from Boston Market is quite possibly one of my favorite things in the world. The key is to mix it with the corn, mashed potatoes, and gravy sides to create the über side dish. Anyone else do that?... More

Cooking from the Glossies: Key Lime Coconut Cake

Serious Eats Grace Kang 16 comments

What to do with two limes on the verge of expiration? Seriously, they didn't even look like limes anymore, but more like deformed green balls of death. Not to worry—they still turned out to be exceptional in this Key Lime... More
