Kenji`s Ultra Flaky Pie Dough on Triple Chocolate Pecan Pie made with an Extra Short Patent Southern Flour for the ULTIMATE FLAKINESS! The Pie is Triple Chocolate Pecan.
So, I figured I`d make a Key Lime Pie using The Key Lime Pie recipe from The Glory of Southern Cooking by James Villas. I read through it and thought it sounded kind of strange as if it wouldn`t work, but I figured I may as well follow the recipe as it was written. Absolutely horrible.
1. Graham Cracker Crust was a joke-Never was cohesive, WAY too many Graham Crackers and had a WHOLE CUP of sugar whereas most had 2-3 tablespoons at most. It was an overflowing non-cohesive powdery mess.
2. The filling had one cup of Lime Juice, most have 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup.
3. There was a tablespoon of lime zest, whereas most had one teaspoon or 1 and a half teaspoons at most.
4. The cooking time of 10 minutes is a joke. Nothing happens in that time frame.
This was absolutely horrible. Here is a direct link to the recipe so you can see what I am talking about. I want to write him and tell him how horrible his recipe is and that it could NEVER work. To think he is a James Beard award winner. What a joke. Anyone have any similar stories?
I don't know who it is that designated May as National Burger Month, but I'd like to give them a big, sloppy, greasy, onion-scented, cheese-covered kiss on the mouth. What better excuse to celebrate our national sandwich (national food?) and look back at the dozens of well-tested burger recipes we have in our archives? Here are 33 recipes that run the gamut from simple to complex, with representation from around the country, breaking regional borders, and indeed inter-species relations.
Jim Lahey has a thing for charred flavors. His pizzas bake up with crisp leopard spotted crusts giving them a hint of smoke and a lot of crunch. He's employed the same high-heat technique for his Cauliflower Pie from My Pizza, a Béchamel sauced pizza topped with roasted florets, mozzarella, green olives, chile flakes, and garlic.
This gooey, cheesy Tex-Mex chicken lasagna is layered with soft corn tortillas and melty Monterey Jack cheese. Jalapeños, chili, cayenne, and Mexican hot sauce provide the kick.
Wanna know the secret to seriously chewy oatmeal bars? Marshmallow. Peanuts and chocolate add a great final touch.
While Texas-style Chile con carne—that is, real chili with big hunks of tender beef simmered in a tomato-and-bean-free sauce—may be the pope of Chili Town, carne adovada—its New Mexican pork-based cousin—is his right hand man. I've never understood why carne adovada doesn't get as much recognition.
Note: This cheese sauce is gooey and tangy. For a spicier version, substitute half the cheddar cheese with Pepper Jack and add 2-3 minced pickled jalapeños, or to taste. To reheat the sauce, microwave it on high heat, stopping and...
This super-quick, Thai-flavored chicken and noodle soup is packed with hot, sour, salty, sweet, and aromatic flavor and goes from pantry to table in about 20 minutes.

Heaps of Oreo cookie whipped cream form the filling and frosting of this major kid friendly cake.
So where should I begin? I didn't have a wok. But this pork stir-fry recipe from Things Cook Love looked amazing, and I figured that I would be fine with a smoking-hot iron skillet. I trudged off to the market,...
Soft, flaky buttermilk biscuits and a smear of sweet honey butter form the base for this crisp fried chicken sandwich.
Spurred by the recent coverage of Los Angeles-based food truck Kogi BBQ, which sounds quite like heaven to me, I've been thinking a lot about this Korean-Mexican marriage. And I like it. I wanted to taste it firsthand, but couldn't...
I'm not the biggest burrito fan. There, I said it. Oversized and out of balance, they're sort of the antithesis of what I usually love. But for some reason I still have a strange affection for the breakfast burrito, probably due to their hangover cure powers. So, what separates a burrito from a breakfast burrito?
The Indian anda bhurji is a riotous mix of colours, spice and flavours that's laden with butter and character. It's served with a dollop of butter and local loaf bread that's lightly toasted in the heat of the pan that the eggs were cooked in.
New York Indian chef Floyd Cardoz shares his recipe for butter chicken, also known as chicken tikka makhani.

Seldom do I promote a recipe so chock-full of store-bought components, but when there are Oreos involved, I make an exception. This is just the ticket for lovers of the cookies n' cream combo, when an ordinary bowl of ice cream just won't do.
I believe my wife has only married me for one reason: I'm willing to put up with her obsession with cheese sauce. The ooey, gooey, velvety smooth, shiny, silky, hot, tangy, and salty goo that chain restaurants and movie theaters ooze over their fries, hot dogs, and nachos.
A little while back I asked the folks over on the Food Lab's Facebook page what their favorite dips were. Amongst the top answers: cheeseburger dip. Apparently, that's a thing. I'd never heard of it, so did a bit of research and discovered that apparently all it is is Velveeta, a can of Ro*Tel tomatoes, and cooked ground beef.
With enough flavorful mix-ins, even the blandest of cheese sauces can pick up enough flavor to stand as the center of your next party's snack platter.
Note: Use only the ripest tomatoes. Don't use a bread that's too flavorful (no sourdough, for example) or rough. You want it to soften and blend into the soup completely. You can serve the soup as is with a drizzle...
Crispy, cakey, chocolaty, coconuty, pop-in-your-mouth doughnuts that are super easy to make? What's not to love?
[Photographs: J. Kenji Lopez-Alt] Note: Look for dried chilis in a large supermarket or latin market. If you can't find these exact chilis, any combination of mild, fruity and bright-tasting chilis will do, such as guajillo or Colorado. Barbacoa can...
I've always felt that the tortillas for a taco—just like the crust on a pizza or the bread for a sandwich—are at least as important as what goes inside it. This makes it particularly distressing to see the number of taquerias that simply don't heat their tortillas correctly. Here's how to do it.
With grilling season just around the corner, now's a good time to bone up on your basics so that you'll be ready to fire up that kettle on the first lazy day of summer (or, if you're anything like me, even earlier). We present to you, the official 2012 Serious Eats Guide To Grilling.
