Poll: Are You a Blotter?

Here in my college town we have a super cheap pizza store and everybody does the Pizza Pipeline flip. Take whole pizza in box, flip box over, flip box back to the front. The amount of grease on the carton is disgusting, and there is still ALOT on the pizza itself. But I usually don't blot.

Do I Need to Soak My Grains?

now you have to write an article on pressure cooking grains, unless you already have one of those.

In Defense of Eating Alone

Eating alone is much much better at the bar. I've been seated at a booth once, that was awkward, too much space for one. The bar is easier. Cooking alone is definitely fun sometimes. I can tell it's becoming more common to cook for 1 or 2 because they now have tiny packages of canned green beans or single serving's of frozen corn. I appreciate it so I don't waste most of a can. Cans are the nemesis of cooking for 1.

The Vegan Experience: How to Deal With Airports

The one time in my life I had an actual meal on an airplane it would have made an excellent vegan meal. It was black bean salad (with optional chicken served on the side for the vegans), avocado, vinaigrette dressing, tortilla chips to sprinkle over the top, it was delish. In the airport I've never paid much attention to options.

Hasselback Potato Gratin

Made for Christmas dinner in place of my normal scalloped potatoes. AMAZING!!! I don't want to go back to normal flat potatoes. Normally my results look absolutely nothing like the picture, but not these, they look very very similar to yours!! Thanks for the great recipe. I'm glad you had your eureka moment.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

You need a disclaimer. I browned my butter in a pan and added the icecube. The thing foamed up beyond my pan into a pile of buttery ness which I ran to the sink. Now my floor is covered in browned butter. It was a little dangerous. I should have transferred it to a bigger container but I didn't want to wash another dish. I hope they turn out. It's mean to make us have to wait a day for our cookies.

Ask The Food Lab Anything, Thanksgiving Edition 2013

I'm going to a Thanksgiving potluck and want to make mashed potatoes ahead of time, could mashed potatoes be kept in the crockpot on warm and not suck? That way I could keep them ahead of time and have them warm on the potluck line.

12 Awesome Grilled Cheese Variations

I tried hot avocado grilled cheese today, I'm not a fan. I can't get over the texture of hot avocado amidst the gooey cheesiness. And I had an older avocado, but it did taste bitter.

The Best Wonton Soup in Manhattan's Chinatown

I live in the wrong Manhattan for this article, but I never knew there were so many variations in wanton soup. Good to know. Need an egg drop soup tutorial next!

Homemade Chick-Fil-A Sandwiches

Never tried a Chick Fillet sandwich (don't live near one), but have always heard they were good. This sandwich was excellent. Good job Kenjie! I thought it was salty, but not overly so. My salt addict brother didn't even notice the salt level. My crust was dark, but not burnt. Overall a really good sandwich.
