Open Thread: What's the Best Frozen Pizza?

I'm not in college anymore so I can't do this too much but...

Heat up some oil in a skillet, place Totino's Party Pizza in skillet, fry crust for a few minutes, cover to melt cheese (or toss the thing under a broiler). Say a little prayer for your innards and enjoy.

The Best Valentine's Day Giveaway Ever: Lobel's 4" Prime Dry-Aged Heart Shaped Steaks for Two

Cast iron. Rare for me. Medium for her. With Maitre D'Hotel Butter!

Super Bowl Party Giveaway: Pat LaFrieda Sliders

Seattle beer, Seattle friends, and anxiety.

Super Bowl Party Giveaway: 17th Street BBQ Baby Back Ribs and Pulled Pork

I change a cross country route and added half a day to my itinerary to go through Kansas City.

Totally worth it.

What Are the Best Nachos in New York?

This should have an X-Y Axis. One coordinate for cheffy vs. divey ingredients, and another for traditional or "Texas Style" where every chip (or almost every chip) is meticulously topped vs. the Northern bar style of pile of chips + pile of toppings (and I mean that in the best possible way).

What I'm trying to say is one person's best nachos in the city might be another's nightmare nachos. Also, I don't live in New York City. NEW YORK CITY???? Get a rope.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: High Road Ice Cream 6-Pack

Pappy Van Winkle.

Jefferson's Chef Collaboration: Whiskey Designed With Chef Edward Lee

In classic DC fashion, that $40 price somehow became $60 at Schneiders.

The Food Lab: How to Make a Turkey Porchetta

As an admitted lazy person - do you think this would work with a butterflied boneless breast that I wrapped in skins from my carneceria?

We Try the New Lindt Hello Bars from Target

If you like the peanut butter world ice cream, and you like the lindt nougat bar, I'd say the odds are very high you should find the 7-11 ben and jerrys exclusive. It's basically a Snickers ice cream and it is dangerously, inappropriately good.

How To Make Chilaquiles Verdes

"I've yet to find a brand of store-bought chips that have the heft and crunch required to stand up to being simmered in salsa."

Frontera Thick & Crunchy, man. Not saying they beat homemade, but they work.

Open Thread: What Words Should Never Be Used to Describe Food?

Any time ingredients are listed, followed by "yes, please!" instead of any actual discussion or comment. "Macaroni AND cheese? Yes, please!" "Bacon wrapped bacon with a bacon stuffing? YES PLEASE." "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese? Yes, Please!"

No, please.

It's lazy, trite, and somehow still apparently ok for otherwise well-regarded food writers to still get away with. We can all read the ingredients too.

Cosign with sallyforth. Honestly, I'd rather go to Elliot's than most of the places on the list above!

The Serious Eats All Star NYC Barbecue Dream Team

to everyone giving love to Hill Country's sausage - you are right but also wrong. yes it is amazing but no, it's not made in house. they ship it up from Kreuz Market in Lockhart.

Of Course Shopsins Makes Great Onion Rings

Those look like a good batch of non-battered onion rings, but is that style really that hard to find in NYC?

Tipsy Palmer: The Ultimate Summer Cocktail

Yup. It's a Jon Daly, not a Tipsy Palmer.

Ask a Bartender: What's the Worst Mistake You've Ever Made Behind the Bar?

Pamela's story reminds me of a time when I was at the bar at a very well regarded southern restaurant and bar. The bartender was young and cocky and speaking off the cuff to the people next to me about liquors and *completely wrong* about what he was saying. After he left we all shared a chuckle.

The lesson overall is to just not be a know-it-all to your customers.
