Healthy & Delicious: Tofu and Mushroom Marsala

Wow! I absolutely agree with the above commenter. Masala cooking wine is inedible even from Whole Foods. The smell was as if I were in a cheap nail salon. Perhaps real wine next time so I don't waste my money and time?!

Sweet Potato Pudding with Pecan and Gingersnap Topping - OMG!

I'm a big fan of Mmmh.. Delicious & Revenge of the Sushi.

Cook the Book: Ad Hoc at Home

One of my favorite neighborhood restaurants is Red Bones in Somerville, MA.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Zingerman's Praise the Lard Gift Box

Last year during the holidays my best friend and I made the NYT's Bacon Cupcake recipe. They were ... indescribable.

Serious Beer: Winter Warmers and Christmas Beers

My favorite holiday beer is Samuel Adams Old Fezziwig Ale: http://yummery.com/beer/samuel-adams-old-fezziwig-ale/

Probably just because of the name ;)

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Russ & Daughters Brunch Package

How could we possibly say anything other than bagels?!

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Two Peter Luger Steaks

I think I'll take a Ribeye.

I know from experience that the Cooks Illustrated Drop Biscuits are outstanding but I'm definitely intrigued by Lidia Bastianich's Squash Tiramisu recipe. That sounds like a must try!

Who Likes Grape Soda?

I used to love this stuff when I was a kid. Mostly because it's purple and purple is my favorite color.

What do you make with your cast iron?

You can make anything and everything in your cast iron dish. The sky is seriously the limit. My grandmother even cooks peanut butter fudge in her super old pan. It comes out heavenly!

Cook the Book: 'Endangered Recipes' by Lari Robling

My grandmother made tuna casserole but called it Tuna, Pea, Wiggle. How funny/absurd is that?! But it sure made me want to eat it.

Cook the Book: Eugenia Bone's 'Well-Preserved'

I'd like to start simply with Jam and Tomatoes.

Weekend DVD Giveaway: 'Bottle Shock'

Pinot Grigio:
When thoughts of work make me cry
You make me smile

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: D'Artagnan Boneless Heritage Ham

Spicy mustard and I usually say sharp cheddar, but someone in the comments above mentioned Brie and my heart skipped a beat.

Cook the Book: Jamie at Home

Roasted squash with butter, pepper, and honey.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Zingerman's Praise the Lard Gift Box

The smell of bacon cooking in the morning at my grandparent's house.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: D'Artagnan Boneless Heritage Ham

Dijon mustard, very soft white bread, and maybe a little sharp cheddar. Then grill it all together.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Zingerman's Praise the Lard Gift Box

Large pieces of thick cut bacon in a big bowl of homemade baked beans full of brown sugar and maple syrup.

Cook the Book: 'How to Cook Everything, Revised Tenth Anniversary Edition'

There's a pasta dish he created with collard greens and sausage that I absolutely adore.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: D'Artagnan Boneless Heritage Ham

Just a good spicy mustard and a slice of sharp cheddar.

Mike's Pastry vs. Modern Pastry Shop: Holy Cannoli!

Love seeing Boston area spots on Serious Eats! But I call shenanigans. In my opinion, Mike's Pastry is the only appropriate answer here :)

Cook the Book: 'Baked, New Frontiers in Baking'

I loved strawberry cake with vanilla icing. I'm 28 and I still ask for "pink" cake on my birthdays.

From personal experience I know that the "Best Drop Biscuits" really are excellent, but I'd love to get down with some Pumpkin Pie Brulee too.
