The Ultimate Fully-Loaded Bloody Mary

I'm not a fan of horseradish in a Bloody Mary-I feel like I'm drinking cocktail sauce. Mine are pretty standard, I like a lot of lemon juice and celery salt, use Cholula to kick up the heat, and garnish with celery and olives.

The Best Deep Dish Pizza in Chicago

I've lived on the East coast my whole life and though I was raised on New York style pizza and Philly/Trenton tomato pies, one of my life goals is to get to Chicago and try an authentic deep dish pizza. Those pictures are making my breakfast of Greek yogurt just DISMAL.

Ask a Bartender: How Do You Prevent a Hangover?

I drink water during the night and take a Gatorade and Advil to bed with me. In the morning I drink more water with a Bloody Mary with extra Cholula, and have a cheese omelet with home fries.

Staff Picks: What's Your Go-To Dinner Party Dessert?

Blueberry lemon bars with a graham cracker crust. No rolling of dough, the filling is ridiculously easy to make, and everything only bakes for about 25 minutes.

Snack Attack: What's Your Favorite Snack Cake?

Jelly Krimpets from Tastykake. Hostess always tasted waxy and overly sugary.

Show and Tell: Your Favorite Cocktail Glasses

Oh, I am YEARNING over here. These are gorgeous.

What's the Weirdest Ice Cream Flavor You've Ever Tried?

olive oil ice cream, rose petal, and my favorite was corn ice cream at Jose Garces' Distrito, which was amazing. And last night I had vanilla/Fruit Loop soft serve at Sampan. Delightful, and not too sweet.

What Alcoholic Drinks Do You Hate?

Jagermeister. Repulsive. Even as an aperitif.
Sambuca
Limoncello

Open Thread: What Was Your Best Pizza of 2013?

Margarita pizza at Tacconelli's in Philly.

Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Christmas Cookie?

My aunt makes these cakey glazed ricotta cookies and they are the only thing other than my mom's Christmas Eve crab and shrimp bisque for which I will knock over small children.

Also, I'm that weirdo that hates chocolate chip cookies, but at 33 my mom still has to swat me away from the raw dough, salmonella be damned.

Poll: Burgers with Two Proteins: Way or No Way?

Nope. I want to taste the beef-the caramelization on the outside of the patty, the juiciness inside, a little salt and pepper to enhance the flavor, and that's it.

What's Your Local Cheap Beer?

Yuengling, Lionshead, and Natty Boh for my Baltimore born husband.

Han Dynasty Rocks the First Stage Then Loses Its Beat

That's a shame, I frequent the locations in Philly and the food and never been anything but stellar. The garlic style lamb, spicy cucumber, and dan dan noodles are a must.

Poll: What Soda Do You Like to Drink With Your Pizza?

I rarely drink soda, but it's birch beer or ginger ale all the way. UNLESS they have fountain Cherry Coke (which is also my movie theater drink of choice).

Poll: What's Your Favorite Hamburger Side?

I voted for shoe-string fries, but there is a brewery/brick oven pizza place in my old neighborhood in West Philly that serves "trio fries." Regular potato, sweet potato, and thin caramelized leeks all tossed together. They're crispy salted evil and go great with 1-7 beers, depending on that night's stamina.

24 Essential Kitchen Tricks and Tips

#17: My best friend's brother makes the best meatballs in the world, and when I was first learning to cook he gave me his two greatest tips: use Pecorino Romano instead of Parmesan, and always make a "flatty" to test the flavor of the meatball mixture. It improved my Italian dinners tremendously.

Staff Picks: Our Favorite Late-Night Snacks

Either a handful of pepperocinis with a few slices of good Parmesan, or Cracked Pepper and Olive Oil Triscuits with sharp cheddar cheese are my typical late night drunk snack. If I'm really lucky I'll have a few leftover pork fried dumplings from last night's takeout.

Open Thread: What's One Food You Wish You Liked?

Another egg hater. I'll eat the occasional cheese omelet or a fritatta, but scrambled, poached, fried, and hardboiled make me retch. It's both the smell and the texture. Going out to breakfast is slightly less exciting for me than it is for my husband.

Staff Picks: What's Inside Our Fridges

Between the capers (my girlfriends and I have labeled ourselves caper sluts), Sabra hummus, mega sriracha and Fage, Erin and I are fridge twins.
