The Food Lab: Slow Cooked Bolognese Sauce

Hi Kenji, this looks amazing. I have a question about the name of this type of sauce. My grandmother growing up made a wonderful stewed meat sauce using chopped meat and ribs, and no ground meat. I always thought of this as ragu, and bolognese as a long cooking sauce using ground meat. But a little googling today told me that ragu alla bolognese is the full name of the ground meat sauce. I haven't been able to find a chopped meat recipe using either of those names. How would you refer to the chopped meat style recipe?

Slurped: Skipping the Soup with Hand-Pulled Noodles at Sheng Wang and Tasty Hand-Pulled Noodles

Marty, the wide noodles at Tasty Hand pulled are most definitely not uniform ... but I think that makes them better! They have a nice overall texture. However, having had both stir fried and soup soaked noodles there, I think that while the noodles in the stir fry are great, the other ingredients are lacking. If it wasn't for the good noodles it would be a very boring stir fry ... why can't we have it all???

5 Tips to Improve Your Daiquiri

You can buy unsweetened cranberry juice at pretty much any grocery store. As anyone with lady-parts (and the attendant bladder infections) can tell you ;-).

Wellesley Fudge Cake

Ok, one of my friends needs to hurry up and have a birthday so that I can make this cake!

Bread Baking: Corn and Cheddar Muffins

I've made this twice, both times as a loaf not muffins (9" pan). The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. The second time I cut the oil in half. I added about a TBS more milk because it seemed dry. The adaptation REALLY threw the recipe off. The texture was all wrong. I would definitely make this recipe again without messing with it.

Cucumber Gin Fizz

Why is it that Hendrick's goes so well with cucumber, but not well as a gin and tonic gin? This is a serious question -- I'd like to understand the flavor profile better.

My favorite sweet I ate in Sicily when I was there last summer were the Brutti e Buoni (ugly, but tasty) cookies. Chewy almondy deliciousness. Sigh, I want to go back!

Achiote-Rubbed Butternut Squash Tacos

These were great. I couldn't find achiote, so I substituted paprika and turmeric based on an online recommendation. Not sure what achiote tastes like, but this worked. Also, I baked the squash so that I could do other things while it was cooking. Turned out deliciously.
