Looking for a Horseshoe Sandwich in Chicago? Visit 6 Degrees in Bucktown

I'm not sure that I could bring my self to try a horseshoe outside of central Illinois (known as southern Illinois to Chicagoans), but this post got me pretty excited that I'm making a trip home to Springfield in a few weeks. D'arcy's is calling my name!

The Vegan Experience: Welcome to Year 3

I've followed your vegan posts from the first year, and I just want to voice my support. Keep up the good work. Any chance of a seitan from scratch recipe? I'm a seasoned cook, former vegetarian, and former executive chef, but mine always turns out spongey. Kenji ftw!

My new favorite word

My boss asked me what to do with her heritage turkey to keep it moist, and I told her to spatchcock it. She told me that sounded dirty and started laughing. She's the kind of woman who whispers "crap" and then looks guilty when she's really upset.

Last minute meal ideas for feeding 4 kids and 4 adults!

Thanks for all of the great ideas!

I hadn't thought of french bread pizza! That'll be so much easier for the kids than using dough.

My answer is still "carbonara."

immersion blender

I have a hamilton beach immersion blender that has a clear plastic guard with rounded edges. I've never had a problem with it scratching pans.It also has a whisk attachment that is great for light whipping.

Winter Green Salad with Walnuts, Apples, and Parmesan-Anchovy Dressing

I want every salad I eat to have anchovy in the dressing. Yum.

Cook the Book, Thanksgiving Special: Sam Sifton and Epicurious

My worst flop was vegan gravy. I made it with a brand of vegetable broth that I had never tried, and it ended up so sweet that it was inedible. That broth must have been made with a crazy amount of carrots.

too much Greek yogurt

Last minute meal ideas for feeding 4 kids and 4 adults!

My husband and I are hosting my mom, my sister, and her four children for a little over two weeks. The kids are 1, 4, 6, and 8. They do pretty well with veggies other than sweet potatoes, my sister HATES mushrooms, and my mom hates pieces of onion in her food (but she won't be here the whole time.) We also need the meals to be on the frugal end of the spectrum. I should also mention that I live in the upper peninsula of Michigan, so if it can't be found at Walmart, I probably can't get my hands on it in time for the visit, which starts tonight... Any suggestions you can offer would be wonderful!

Has anyone cooked goat?

Hi eaters!
I've been tasked with cooking some ground goat meat that is in a friend's freezer. I've eaten goat in stews at restaurants, but I've never cooked with it. Does anyone have any experience or suggestions? We don't have any dietary restrictions, we're not picky, and I'm not afraid of complicated recipes. Thanks!

Precooked frozen salmon...

I was recently given some grilled, frozen salmon filets, and I'm at a loss as to what to do with them. They're unseasoned and individually vacuum sealed. I made salmon cakes, which were pretty decent, but I have four of them left and no ideas. Thoughts?

too much Greek yogurt

I bought 10 small containers of vanilla Greek yogurt the other day, but I realized after the first bite that it's the artificially thickened kind, and it's way too thick and just has a strange texture. There's no way I'm going to power through all of it on it's own, so I'm hoping for some ideas about how to use it up. It's not very sweet or vanilla-y, but I doubt it would work in savory dishes. Any ideas?

summer soups

Hi, everyone! I've been lurking for a long time, but I finally decided to join. I'm hoping you can help me out of a cooking rut. I make soup several times a week, but I'm terribly bored with all of my recipes. What are your favorite spring/summer soups? Recipes?
