Sunday Supper: Soy-Glazed Roast Chicken

I made it and it was great. It was not even close to burnt; I think the soy sauce also makes it appear darker than it actually was. This will become a staple.

@eric - are you drunk? These are amazing!

Ask the Food Lab Anything, the Thanksgiving Edition

What size turkey do I need for 4 hungry adults, with having some left over for leftovers? Also, what is the best way to cook, what I am assuming will be, a smaller turkey?

A Sandwich a Day: Chicken Cutlet Hoagie from Taylor Gourmet in Washington, D.C.

I don;t see the attraction to this place at all. I have been here a few times and each time, I just leave broke and unsatisfied.

San Francisco: A Pungently Good Burger at Heirloom Cafe

@David Kover - I agree that flavor is important, but texture is right up there for me. I grew up eating burgers like this and I can't stand them. It was an awesome review though!

San Francisco: A Pungently Good Burger at Heirloom Cafe

Looks pre-salted to the max. Yuck. It looks like an undercooked meatball.

Snapshots from Portugal: White Port and Tonic

There is a great Portuguese store in Newark. I never learned the joy of white port until I met my girlfriend who is Portuguese.

My thoughts exactly.

Dunkin' Donuts' Big N' Toasty: At Least It's Toasty

I had it a few weeks ago and it was not great. The toast was more butter than toast and it was all overcooked.

I don't get it, why would anyone laugh at this? I just get douche chills...

Drinking the Bottom Shelf: Old Crow Bourbon

I have to say, for 6 more bucks, Buffalo Trace is a much better bet. I loved OC in college, but I just got sick on it a few too many times to get enjoy a few years later...

A Sandwich a Day: Cheesesteak with Fried Potatoes from Jimmy Buff's in East Hanover, NJ

That doesn't even look appealing. Starch/carb bomb, with seemingly little to no pay off.

The Secret Ingredient (Black Pepper): Multigrain Cacio e Pepe with Arugula

Yeah, this looks awesome! My favorite food is black pepper, so this is right up my alley.

The Design Flaws of the Corkbar Burger in Los Angeles

That patty looks terrible. I would send it back if I ever got something that dense. YUCK.

Cocktails and Spirits with Paul Clarke: Blended Whiskies Aren't Always So Bad

JW Blue is good, but for that price, you can get a much better or more of a single malt.

Gotan Project or De-Phazz

Dinner Tonight: Roasted Beet and Potato Borscht

Dill and cabbage are a must.

Extra Crunchy Potato Chips

Or you can just skip all that and make them in a microwave.

Smoking Cast Iron

I just got a new Lodge Cast Iron griddle and after a few uses it smokes like crazy. I have wiped it off a lot, but it still smokes. What did I do wrong?!

Halibut Cheeks?!

I have in my fridge 1 pound of halibut cheeks that I need to cook; what can I do with them beyond the obvious of grilling or saute?
