Cacio e Pepe (Spaghetti With Black Pepper and Pecorino Romano)

We made this tonight, actually doubled the batch to a whole pound of pasta for impromptu dinner guests. It was a total hit! I followed the directions to a T process-wise but was only a little lighter on the butter and olive oil due to doubling. Bottom line- I will definitely make it again! Thanks Kenji for another amazing recipe.

Pasta San Danielle. Had it on our honeymoon in Italy and have been trying to recreate it ever since. Thanks for the giveaway!

Every Diner Should Serve a Gyro Omelet

We definitely have gyro omelets in Denver, too! One spot near my first apartment here takes it a step further: a breakfast burrito (gyro meat, egg, cheese in a tortilla) smothered in green chile with a side of home fries. If that does not bust your hangover, it will certainly send you back to bed until said hangover is gone.

My dad is either a sausage guy, or "that guy" with a bacon-double-cheeseburger order every now and then. He's nuts! But of course, I love him.

The Serious Eats Guide to Thanksgiving Beer Pairing

I'd like to add Odell's Fernet aged Porter to the list of dessert beer pairings. We had it at a dinner party a few weeks back with a chocolate-based dessert and it was one of the best suited beers for coursing I've had in recent memory. Thanks for the list of ideas!

What I Learned at the Great American Beer Festival: A Brewer's Perspective

Your suspicions are somewhat correct- Almanac's beers are some of the ones my fiance (a brewer here in Denver) and I are still talking about after the festival. Cheers!

Excellent Tiny Wieners at Hot Dog Charlie's in Cohoes, NY

@Cirilism Hattie's in Saratoga is a good spot for Fried Chicken! I second a stop at Oscar's too. Check out Fussy Little Blog or Tablehopping (from the Times Union) for other recommendations, they do a good job of upstate coverage.

Excellent Tiny Wieners at Hot Dog Charlie's in Cohoes, NY

Aw man, this is making me homesick! We used to go to Charlie's after school all the time. I think you guys have already written up Famous Lunch and Gus' but those are two other standout spots for these little guys.

Poll: Sriracha on Pizza, Way or No Way?
