The Pizzadilla: This is What Happens When a Quesadilla and a Pizza Make Sweet Love

YES YES YES YES YES.

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!

Cauliflower Cake From 'Plenty More'

Forget Warm Spinach and Bacon: Warm Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Salad is the Way to Go

This looks super rad.

Use Your Cast Iron Pan and a Tortilla to Make World Class Bar-Style Pizza in Under 12 Minutes

I've been thinking about doing a pizza with a quesadilla for its crust. This gives me hope.

Easy Creamy Cauliflower Soup With Bacon

Ocean, some people are just selfish.

Cook This Now: Deep Fried Avocado Tacos

This addressed every concern and objection I had, and in the order I had them. It's as if the article could hear me saying, "Yeah, but..." and then responded "Hang on, ...see"

How to Cook the Perfect Roast Chicken

I think this is the best way to do this. It only takes a few moments to decide if I want to go look at the original article again.

Use the Waffle Iron to Make the Best Hash Browns of Your Life

The main reason I clicked this was those are the thinnest-grated hash browns I've ever seen. I definitely want to try some like that. The waffle thing sounds great but I want a potato bird's nest.

Shepherd's Pie Meatloaf With Parmesan Potato Crust and Stilton Sauce

Scoring the potatoes is such a smart idea!

Turn Your Pasta Into Ramen With Baking Soda

If you add enough steps, you should just make the noodles yourself.

Turn Your Pasta Into Ramen With Baking Soda

When I saw the headline I thought, D'OH! Of course.

Definitely gonna try this sometime soon.

How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: So I Failed My Construction Inspection

This is like the tragedy version of when Uncle Jesse was trying to open his club. "In a tragedy, the hero does everything right and fails. In a comedy, the hero does everything right and succeeds." -David Mamet

(Yes, Full House and David Mamet in the same comment)

How I Built a Barbecue Restaurant in Brooklyn: Standing Before the Community Board

Can you talk more about those "naive answers" you gave? I imagine I'd be in the same boat.

How the New York City Meatball Helped Build Italian-American Cuisine

I like these longer pieces.

Why You Should Be Cooking With Thai Basil

My first sweet basil plants this year died. The second are okay, but the Thai Basil is unstoppable. Love it.

Hey Chef, What Can I Do With Mint?

I got a mint plant that I might not be able to keep through winter. This is awesome.

The Food Lab Turbo: Why You Should Really Be Grilling Your Cabbage

I was thinking about a charred cabbage slaw a few weeks ago, but it keeps raining on my day off!

Now it won't be an experiment. I'll already know it's gonna be good.

Hattie B's Hot Chicken From 'Fried & True'

Hattie B's is rad. Their hottest chicken is super hot up front, none of that slow build like other places.

The Best Sweets We Ate in August

Holy mother. Often the "Best x We x" slideshows are two or three really awesome-looking things and a bunch of perfectly acceptable-looking things. But I'll take a cup of coffee and one of everything this time, please.

Solbeso: Chocolate's Boozy Cousin From South America

Where are people getting this stuff about how it's not supposed to taste like anything? The article is full of flavor descriptions.

This sounds awesome.

The Real Reason Sugar Has No Place in Cornbread

I just ordered some stuff from Anson Mills! If I dig it, I'll try some more stuff, including a corn meal.

Give Eggplant Parm a Makeover With Sweet Summer Zucchini

This sounds awesome, and obvious in a "why did it take this long" sort of way. Eggplants can all be fed to prisoners for all I care.

The Buttery Truth Behind Portland, OR's Best Doughnuts

Did you guys redesign SeriousEats and write this article just so you could make a Mitch Hedberg joke?

Salted Roasted Peanut Old Fashioned in a Bottle

How would using the rye peanuts for peanut butter turn out?

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?
