Arrogant Swine's Whole Hog Barbecue Opening in Brooklyn This Summer

I have never lived in NYC, only visited for business and pleasure. And I will never understand folks unwillingness to go someplace that's not RIGHT by a subway stop. Not being critical, more curious. If it's not in a safe neighborhood, that I understand completely.

The Best Valentine's Day Giveaway Ever: Lobel's 4" Prime Dry-Aged Heart Shaped Steaks for Two

Pan fried - medium rare. Then I'd have to cut it in half and finish my wife's to medium well. :-(

Why Have I Never Tried: Fast Break?

BEST. CANDY BAR. ON. THE. PLANET.

Seriously. I can't think of anything I like more.

Also, I realize putting periods and caps for extreme effect is old. :)

Feature Request: Date Sort when doing a site search

Thanks for the response, Paul. I appreciate it. Even if you were able to default the search to reverse chronological order, I think that would be AWESOME.

Currently it just sucks. :) I search Philadelphia (where I live) and an article from 2008 is first. 2008! Followed by another 2008 and then a 2011.

Littauer, I do that exact thing in order to find what I want.

I'm guessing that there's just not a ton of users that search. Otherwise this might be higher up the totem pole.

Thanks!!

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

Overcooked meat! Can't stand it. I don't recall having a burger past medium that I cared for one bit.

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

Best burger that I've had is actually a backyard burger with some of that Pat LaFrieda meat! AMAZING.

The Best Potato Chip You've Never Had

@GretchinF - I love food swapping. I'm a Philly guy, so I'll swap some of our regional favorites: Soft pretzels, whoopie pies, old bay potato chips... COULD be somewhat cost prohibitive to send you cheesesteaks, but if you're up for the cost I know places that will do it!

Holiday Giveaway: The Amazing Thermapen Thermometer

Leftover liege dough that I made w/ bread flour. Tried making it into small rolls... Not so much...

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Korin Knife

Love chopping some garlic. NOT!!

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: The Baking Steel

I'd take my FRIED pancetta from yesterday's contest entry and throw that bad boy on top. Otherwise? I've gotta go with Pep.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: La Quercia's Pork Belly Heaven Package

FRIED baby FRIED

A Sandwich a Day: Original Italian from Jack's Place in Philadelphia

Blasphemy @ John Lauber - Blasphemy. :)

Daily Slice: Al Pastor Pizza from Rosario's, Philadelphia

That might be the greasiest box I've ever seen.

And I want some right now.

Cook the Book: 'Mac and Cheese'

The best mac and cheese I've ever had was homemade. 5 cheeses, finished in the smoker. LOVED IT!

AHT Giveaway: 'Hamburger America' by George Motz

I go with cheddar or bleu cheese depending on the burger makeup. But for a thin griddled patty - American all the way.

Murray's Cheese Bar in the West Village: A Tricky Concept, But A Good Restaurant

No photo of the amazing burger? :(

Home Slice: How to Make a Pizza Burrito

I know it's not the same thing, but when I want something "pizza burrito-ish" I go the Calzone/Stromboli route. I find that I REALLY would miss the crust in this burrito. Maybe if you were able to par-bake some really thin pizza crust instead of the tortilla?

AHT Giveaway: Omnomnomnivore T-Shirt from Threadless

Obviously it's the Omnomnomnivore.

How to Grill Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

I have been using a brine on my chicken breasts for a while now and every time, I get great compliments. I don't brine for too long (30 minutes minimum, 90 minutes max) and I always rinse and pat dry.

I also ONLY use a two zone fire for my chicken. I like to sear on a higher heat and then move to the "cool" side with the vent (I use lump charcoal) above the chicken. Creates a nice draft of hot air that flows right over the meat. This process takes a little bit longer, but the results are well worth it.

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

Honestly that would be the first time I blended my own meat and made a Shake Shack knock off burger. It was amazing. (I know, I led a sheltered burger life up to that point)

Memorial Day Grilling Giveaway: Win This Delicious Cap of Ribeye

I seriously love a good ribeye. Can't be beat in my book. Add in some garlic mashed potatoes and some sweet corn on the cob... Mmmmmmm

Super Bowl Giveaway: 10-Pound Box of Pat LaFrieda Sliders

If I win these? Then I'm going all Martin's Potato Dinner Rolls, Shake Shack sauce, ooey gooey american cheese all over these bad boys!!

***I'm in Philly so shipping costs would obviously be much less. :-)

How to make apple pie for a group? Individual portions?

Hey all! So I love making apple pie, and I make a damn good one. I have an issue though for this week. We're having a baking "competition" at my office and while I could make a few pies in my go to pyrex plates and then slice them thinly to share, I'm wondering if there's a better way to do this? What do you guys think? I'd rather not buy mini pie dishes, but that might be best?

Brunch Rec's in Alexandria, VA

Looking for some great brunch rec's in Alexandria, VA as we'll be going down to meet some relatives from the left coast tomorrow. We have two kids (neither of which are picky) and we'd prefer NOT to break the bank. Thanks!

Feature Request: Date Sort when doing a site search

Hey all! So I don't think I'm the only one that finds this annoying, but maybe I am.

When I travel, I love coming to this site to see what restaurants I should and should NOT visit. That being said, if I do a search for Alexandria, VA, articles just randomly show up w/ no chance to sort by date order. I've resorted to doing a google search instead.

Could we add a feature of date sorting to the search results page? Thanks SE!!
