Serious Eats Neighborhood Guides: Scott Hocker's Prospect and Crown Heights

Bergen Bagels (Bergen & Flatbush) is my favorite for bagels.

Grilled Cheese Curd Panzanella

This looks great!

@cbmiller, I'm thinking Beecher's (north of Union Sq.) would have cheese curds. I know the original Seattle location has them.

Dinner Tonight: Penne with Tuna and Spicy Mustard

This was tasty and incredibly easy! Next time I think I'll toss in some capers, too.

@BitchinFixins, inspired by your comment, I also tried canned tuna in my Annie's mac and cheese last week when I was feeling lazy, and it was good!

Spiked Thin Mint Milkshake

This sounds so good! I'm curious how you arrived at tequila, though!

Drinking the Bottom Shelf: American Regional Lagers

My favorites are National Bohemian and Old Style. Old Style is a classic at Cubs games in Chicago, and Natty Boh is soon to be back on tap at Oriole Park in Baltimore!

Pickled Watermelon - Where To Buy in NYC?

Unfortunately looks like pork belly is up in price!

Cook the Book: Galette of White Peaches and Tomatoes

Can't wait to make this.

Spicy tomato sauce

@chardonnay - yes, it's totally easy! aside from seasoning lots and stirring occasionally, you can pretty much just let it sit on the stove.

Spicy tomato sauce

@paolo - That sounds good too! Mainly I use it on eggplant parmesan but it's also really good on plain pasta.

I always intend to make a lot and then freeze it but haven't tried that quite yet.

Dinner Tonight: Eggplant Parmesan

I also slice the eggplant as thin as possible - no more than 1/4" thick slices. Much more delicious this way, IMHO.

Dinner Tonight: Eggplant Parmesan

This is my favorite dish to make. My modifications: make more of the tomato sauce, and make it very spicy by seasoning every 10 or 15 minutes with black pepper and red pepper.

Traverso's: Filling Happy Stomachs in Orland Park for 35 Years

I remember this place! Many a fond memory with the swim team.

Eat for Eight Bucks: Meat and Two Veg

Keeping it simple and elegant - definitely going to try this!

Cakespy: Reverse Whoopie Pies

...could you make these with Nutella?

Cook the Book: Szechuan Beans

Anyone tried Rick's Pick's Mean Beans? Delicious, especially with beer and cheese.

Serious Heat: Santa Fe-Style Green Chile Pancakes

It was at the Nashville breakfast joint Pancake Pantry where I was introduced to pancake perfection—the Village Smithy COLO Sante Fe Cornmeal Pancakes. They take stone-ground cornmeal pancakes and fill them with cheddar cheese chunks, crisp bacon, and roasted green chiles. Just a drizzle of maple syrup over the top adds a sticky sweetness, but the main garnish for me was a swirl of salsa and sour cream. So I set out to recreate the recipe at home with results that would spice up any brunch gathering. More
