How to Make Quick Dill Pickles to Top Burgers and Sandwiches

I was always under the impression I needed to use some sort of special pickling salt to do pickles.. and as someone who loves pickles and has wanted to try it for the longest time it was that requirement that was keeping me away. If I can just use kosher salt though.... I'm all over this.

Video: Use Cherry Tomatoes for the Fastest Fresh Pasta Sauce Ever

Ha! I was very amused to see this come up in my feed, considering I'd just experimented last night with turning a surplus of cherry tomatoes from the garden into pasta sauce. It's really funny how similar this recipe is with my own experiment involving throwing whatever seemed right into the pan. I will note I also added a splash of apple cider vinegar to my take.

One on the grill with some wood for smoking and the other the traditional way in the oven. I may have to try convincing my mother to try spatchcocking though.

Not only light but not even hand carved. They go to the trouble of using the best beef, but using a slicer? Pity.

Deep Fried Chicago: R.J. Grunts

Here in the Buffalo area, the breaded variety of wings are referred to as wingdings and are largely served unsauced with the Buffalo sauce on the side for dipping.
They're nice as a change of pace from normal wings, but by no means as a replacement.

Just a minor correction: Kuma is Japanese for Bear, not specifically for Polar Bears.

Will Gordon Tries the New Slim Jim Flavors

The Matador sticks are a poor substitute for a proper Slim Jim. Though myself I prefer any form of kippered beef snack like those made by Trail's Best or Jack Link's.

Serious Entertaining: A Blowout Christmas Dinner

Just a correction on your idiom usage, it's 'pedal-to-the-metal' rather than 'medal'. Though I suppose the latter might be a fun variant to use in discussion of a bicycle marathon.
