The Food Lab: The Pressure Cooker Makes Short Work of This Authentic Texas Chile con Carne

I wish I had room for a pressure cooker.
How about some love for posole on Serious Eats? Red, green, white, all good!

How to Make the Best French Onion Soup

I'd just like to add that some people (I'm talking chefs, food writers) insist that true french onion soup should be made with water, not stock, and definitely not beef stock. So, it's not really a matter of laziness to use chicken stock— not everyone even considers beef stock a requirement.

How to Make the Best French Onion Soup

I find the soup almost too aggressively sweet when the onions get too dark.
@superSEARious, with beef stock you have to roast the bones, deglaze the roasting pan, and just simmer longer.

Planet Meatball: 20 Meatball Varieties Around the World

Yes! They seem to vary so much and I've honestly loved all the ones I've had (some were just tender uninterrupted meatball, others had water chestnuts and mushrooms, some had thicker sauce, others more a broth, etc), but I'd still love to see any version get the spotlight.

I was really hoping lion's heads would be featured during meatball week.

Creamy Cole Slaw

This is truly the best coleslaw ever, though I do halve the black pepper.
If your slaw is salty, you didn't rinse enough!

Thai-Style Grilled Chicken (Gai Yang)

Use the Pressure Cooker to Make Full-Flavored Pho Ga (Vietnamese Chicken Noodle Soup) In 30 Minutes

I wonder if we can get Kenji to make bun bo hue…

Stir-Fried Chicken With Mushrooms and Oyster Sauce

Another winner by Shao! Loved this!

Vietnamese Sandwiches with Tempura Sweet Potato and Avocado (Vegan Banh Mì)

This is an incredible banh mi. The sweet potato with scallion oil is such a delicious combination!

Spicy Thai-Style Pomelo, Green Bean, and Zucchini Salad

I'm a wimp because I couldn't handle this at all. And I only used 1 1/2 tsp of the Thai chili flakes!

Kung Pao Fish With Dried Chilies and Sichuan Peppercorns

This is such an easy and delicious dish. Even tilapia tastes great made this way!

Stir-Fried Cod With Yellow Squash and Asparagus

This is such a delicious stir fry! It's clean in flavor, light, and perfect with some rice. I kept going back for more!

Easy Make-Ahead Carrot and Chickpea Salad With Dill and Pumpkin Seeds

I'm looking to get away from the meat overload after the holidays and this was surprisingly tasty given the simplicity.

Bacon-Braised Green Beans

These are delicious! The vinegar mellows out and you end up with a lovely sweetness from the butter and juices. And they were even better a day later!

The Best Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

Indeed better than other green sauce enchiladas, and it's not like they're ever bad!

American Chop Suey (Macaroni, Beef, and Cheese Skillet Casserole)

This was so incredibly comforting and delicious. I had people asking for leftovers!

Point/Counterpoint: What's the Queen of Christmas Breads?

How about Serious Eats give some love to pandoro and kugelhopf?
But I'm definitely team stollen on this.

The Food Lab: My 11 Favorite Recipes of the Year, 2014

Oh those amazing black bean burgers! They're practically an obsession for me.

How to Make a White Chocolate and Champagne Bûche de Noël

Rolling the cake while hot for jelly rolls helps keep them flexible.

Whipped white chocolate ganache is also a choice (I'd go with the whipped cream myself, but they're both really good).

@atombaby: What about just white chocolate whipped cream. It's delicious!

The World of Buttercreams: 6 Varieties to Try at Home

I make French for flavors that do well with the extra richness, like caramel, coffee/espresso, chocolate, lemon, vanilla bean.

Italian and Swiss for fruity buttercreams (like raspberry), and also any of the flavors as Frencg, depending on wthether I have egg whites or yolks at my disposal.

German for vanilla, cream cheese, banana, coconut, and just when it appeals to me.

I hate American buttercream, so I never make it.

Huevos Rancheros

One of my favorite breakfasts! The tangy and black beans are such a great combo!

A Cookie a Day: The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the absolute best as far as I'm concerned, and I'm not a huge ccc fan!

Any Chance Of New World Mall Coverage?

Most online coverage of this place is from when it just opened, and at most they just have menus of each stand, many of which no longer exist.
Every time I go there I feel so overwhelmed. There are so many stands and some stands have encyclopedic menus! I'd really love to see a more thorough guide to this place with some idea of what's good.
For my contribution I'll say I really enjoy Szechuan Dish's dumplings, though I'm sad I never got to this stand when it served other dishes!
