Game Day Snacks: 4 Awesome Homemade Potato Chip Flavors

I haven't made chips since Kenji's recipe came out. Looks like it's time.

Estela Chef Ignacio Mattos Talks Plating, Flavor, and Presentation

How to Make the Best Italian-American Meatball Sandwich

Making the sandwich without eating the meatballs is no joke. That should replace the marshmallow test for self control in children.

How to Make Meatball Pizza

Is meat sauce on a pizza common? I've never seen it, but I think my next pizza is going to just have some sausage incorporated into the sauce, and some cheese.

The Secrets of the Juiciest, Most Tender and Flavorful Italian-American Meatballs

I have been wanting to try some meatballs with gelatinized stock for awhile, but I've been too lazy. These sound really good. Definitely gonna try the buttermilk.

Also, what the fuck is "twee?"

Why Diners Are More Important Than Ever

I whined a lot about one of the website redesigns with that nonsense at the top, saying that I check SeriousEats often and some thing pointing to an article I've already seen just gets in the way. But, with the content being longer pieces like this more than the many many short pieces, it makes sense.

And I reallllllly like the stuff like this, and the historical stuff, origins and culture of food. Please keep putting out stuff like this. Context and insight are way more interesting than reviews, and I think I might like these more than the Food Lab stuff! (shhhhhh, don't tell)

9 Outstanding Barrel Aged Beers

Definitely want to try that Black Ops.

Why Serious Cooks Use Carbon Steel Knives

Charred Lemon Gin Sparkler

Cookbook Review: 'Bar Tartine' Trades Hard Work for Show-Stopping Results

This sounds super awesome.

How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: Changing the Menu and Considering Feedback

These are really great. This series and the gentlemen opening the pizza / bicycle restaurant, and the pizza guy who hates Chik Fil A are so interesting.

I'm sure I've been both guests: "You took away the best thing and replaced it with garbage!" or "You got rid of that garbage and replaced it with the best thing!"

It's interesting to see the conflict playing out. Will the wings and mac and cheese be tent poles for other stuff you want to try but might not sell? Will you have "Banana Pudding First Weekend til it sells out!" and "Eat Pone just like you're in a prison this week only!" and so on?

Use This Stovetop Method for an Easy, No-Bake Fruit Crisp

BostonDiner, The reason is that streusel is better than granola.

This Rustic Apple-Cranberry Pie Is So Darn Easy it Doesn't Even Need a Pie Plate

I like this because I can make any size I would like. It doesn't have to be dictated arbitrarily by the size of the pie dish.

42 Taco Recipes We Love

That comic is what most comment sections actually sound like.

And TheFinn's comment makes me think that tacos would be a great way to do Friday Night Meatballs. Except, you know, tacos. Maybe the host will make all the tortillas, and the guests will bring fillings.

Win a Copy of 'Heritage'

Red eye gravy is one of my favorite Southern foods that I never make at home. My dad made it when I was very young and we had it with toast. Sean Brock is so interesting and passioned and I was so happy to see him on Mind of a Chef. AND I didn't realize he had another Husk location, so I might actually be able to visit!

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?
