Best PB&J Combo?

My fave would be PB with peach jam on Oregon Hazelnut bread. More than likely, if I am going to eat PB I have it with tomato soup on white bread. Very good when dunked into the soup.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Korin Knife

An old pasring knife that I inherited from my Mother in Law. She used it so much that it is worn down to a thin blade from sharpening. It always brings fond memories of meals that we shared.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Donabe Hot Pot and Hot Pot Book

What have I done? How do I fix it?

It seems that I have just canned some chicken in my new KitchenAid skillet! I was poaching some chicken in an 8 inch skillet (stainless steel w/ silicone and glass lid) I grabbed a lid that looked like it fit, but apparently belonged to the stockpot. Wow, it created a vaporlock and I cannot get the lid off. I have tried heat, cold, and brute force. Any suggestions?

Cooking for someone on medical marijuana?

I have a friend who is ill, as a result he has a medical marijuana card. I have made the ever popular brownies. Made some clarified butter with some the other day, what to do that would be palatable and comforting, also packed with some serious nutrition. Any ideas?

Homemade Bagels, à la Jo Goldenberg

[Photographs: Adam Kuban] This is my go-to recipe for homemade bagels. It's adapted from Bernard Clayton's Complete Book of Breads. Clayton, in turn, got the recipe from the folks at the now-defunct Jo Goldenberg's, the famous Jewish restaurant and delicatessen... More

Bread Baking: Long Loaves

I'm not going to call these French bread or baguettes, because they are neither. What they are, though, is good. My secret weapon, semolina flour, adds a richness to the bread that I love. These are softer loaves. Still substantial, but also a bit airy. They're perfect for sandwiches—soft enough to bite into without breaking teeth or gouging the roof of your mouth with sharp crusty shards, but hearty enough to stand up to whatever fillings you choose.

Bread Baking: Apple Butter Swirl Bread

The resulting bread had a nice soft crumb, even between the closest swirls, with none of the typical smashed flat sections. I'm pretty pleased with this method. This is a great breakfast bread and makes an interesting grilled cheese sandwich, as well. More

Mac & Cheese Help

I'm on a mission to make mac & cheese for my boyfriend's birthday next month (it's his favorite). I've tried making mac & cheese at home, but it never comes out the way I want it to. I like my... More

Caramelized Onions in the Crockpot

I was putting up a bunch of these today and thought that some of you Serious Eaters might be interested in trying them. I started with five pounds of Mayan Sweet onions, peeled then sliced them thin in the food... More

Cook the Book: Cornmeal Biscuits with Honey Butter

These Cornmeal Biscuits with Honey Butter from Eric Ripert's Avec Eric are a biscuit-cornbread hybrid and just the kind of Thanksgiving bread that's quick enough to be totally doable. The dough comes out of the food processor moist enough to shape but thankfully not at all sticky. They're simple to roll out and shape, and out of the oven in a little over 10 minutes. They are light and fluffy with a great cornmeal crunch, and when spread with the sweet-salty honey butter, totally irresistible. More
