Wild Mushroom-Stuffed Chicken Thighs With Fingerling Potatoes and Green Olives

This looks so good. It's not like stuff I usually cook but stuff I definitely would eat.

This Week at Serious Eats World Headquarters

The cats are okay!

The Best Delivery Snack Packages in the U.S.

I've gotten two NatureBox shipments so far and have really liked 4/5 items each time. I intended to choose my snacks for the second shipment but didn't in time and received totally different stuff that I was still happy with, and was happy to get some things I wouldn't have given a chance otherwise.

I have to put my next one on hold though, because I can't eat this many snacks in a month.

Jeff Varasano on Baking, Branding, and the Business of Pizza (Part 2)

The first time I had Chik Fil A, back when I was in middle school and a small group of us went to some test to prove the program we were in was worthwhile at the university campus, it was awesome. We didn't have a real Chik Fil A for miles and miles, and I'd never even seen one before. I knew it was simple, but it was delicious.

Skip forward to the next time, and every time since then, and I would swear it's a different sandwich.

I think he is right that branding and familiarity and being able to relate to others about where you went is more important than the food. I try to fight that as much as I can, but I surely am just as likely to do it as anybody.

And remember, he isn't just criticizing Chik Fil A and Starbucks. He praises them genuinely for building their brand and claiming their positions.

Knife Skills: How to Slice Chicken Breast for Stir-Fries

That's right: They should know what to do before they do it. And so an article like this is useful.

Testing the Five-Second Rule, Lime Prices Skyrocket, and More in Food Policy This Week

The thing with the five second rule for me has always been that I am not concerned about getting sick. What concerns me is eating the garbage that you sweep off the floor. I mean, a piece of sand can ruin a whole bowl of chowder. Imagine what rolling a piece of chicken around on the floor does.

Bok Choy and Kale Fried Rice With Fried Garlic

I've been buying fried garlic by the tub because I'm usually too lazy to do it. But greens in my stir fry have been happening a lot lately.

A Sandwich a Day: The Dudewich at Terra Cole in Seattle

Just from the picture I thought it would be a sort of barbecue and horseradish sauce sandwich, but it's totally different. I think it still sounds delicious.

Drink milk out of a glass? What, like a poor person? YEAH RIGHT.

Tasting Report: Everything You Need to Know About Dominique Ansel's Milk and Cookie Shot

@The True Adonis-

The difference is that, this way, the cookie is shaped like a shot glass and is filled with milk.

We Eat Every Rice Ball at Sunny Blue, in Santa Monica

I want a rice ball shop in my neighborhood. These look great. The only restaurant in town that makes them is out every time I've been there.

Ask the Food Lab: What's the Point of Bay Leaves?

I've long considered cooking just a bay leaf in water to see what I'm really doing. Things like pepper are easy to understand and taste on their own, but a bay leaf is one step further than I usually want / remember to bother with in the kitchen when I'm curious.

Cool!

Adorable. Also, True Detective is the best show that has ever been.

The Serious Eats Guide to Whole Grains

Thanks so much for this! I'm gonna give amaranth a try, and have been meaning to start cooking barley at home.

My Pie Monday: Shrimp Scampi, Goat Gouda, Sake Sauce, and More!

That shrimp scampi pizza and the potato goat gouda look reallllly good.

This Week at Serious Eats World Headquarters

The fries waffle sounds genius. And hey, if I want to put some mayo and some cheese and some green onions on there, you know, that's okay too.

Things to eat while reading a book

I was trying to read a book and eat tacos today and found it really difficult. Maybe someone with experience would have an easier time.

I find things that require only one hand and very little attention to be the easiest for me. Pasta, pizza, french fries, ice cream, or small sandwiches like a simple chicken salad are probably my favorites?

What do you like to eat while reading a book? Ever think you could pay attention to your food and your book at the same time, and be mistaken?
