Chicken and dressing is better than turkey any day of the week. There's a reason people don't eat more turkey.

The Food Lab: For the Best Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Use Science, Not Sugar

@rosewood that is how my grandmother makes them. Cuts them in to hunks and sprinkles some brown sugar on them. She then roasts them until they are black. They are amazing. So sticky they can pull a tooth. I've never seen them cooked this way anywhere else.

Those look delicious. I can't stand when folks put the marshmallows on top.

The Best Way to Reheat Lasagna: Fry it Up! (Plus: Party-Ready Crispy Lasagna Skewers!)

Well I guess I should have read the entire article. My bad.

The Best Way to Reheat Lasagna: Fry it Up! (Plus: Party-Ready Crispy Lasagna Skewers!)

I agree with @KevinGardo I always think its better the next day. Same with baked ziti. I am pretty sure that this is the same method they use at Del Posto for their 100 layer lasagna.

The Truth About Cast Iron Pans: 7 Myths That Need To Go Away

I always find it interesting that there are so many myths revolving around cast iron and its care. Its about the most indestructible cooking item there is. You can do almost anything to it and still salvage it.

Why Candy Corn Deserves Our Respect: An Appreciation

Love the stuff although these days I allow myself only a taste. Brachs had a caramel version recently that was good.

How many time can I see one of your posts and think what a genius you are?

Manner Matters: Does She Have to Bring Her Boyfriend?

@Kenji Maybe you'll feel differently after 16 years :) I kid. I love my wife and spend most of my free time with her but we each enjoy our separate moments as well. I guess I was referring to those couples that seem slightly too clingy or those where one partner makes drama about occasional solo time.

Manner Matters: Does She Have to Bring Her Boyfriend?

I think the question was well answered. That said I've always found it weird when couples seem to have to do almost everything together.

Super Simple Friday Night Meatballs

Seems like a simple decent recipe. Make it more simple by leaving the bread crusts on. Removing them is unnecessary.

The meatballs at the Meatball Shop are terrible.

How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: On Writing a Menu

@Ocean I don't care about tradition. There's not enough fat. I've never had a smoked bird that wasn't dry. Maybe wings but otherwise I don't think it's worth the effort.

The Best Ice Cream, Gelato, and Soft Serve in NYC

Otto is my favorite. I agree about Nicoletta. That ice cream is great but it's the only thing worth eating there.
