glazes & stuffings for winter squash?

Glazed with apple cider, fill the center of the acorn squash ring with a homemade whole-cranberry/orange sauce. Yum!

Top Five Fancy-Pants Doughnuts in New York City

I loved the donuts I had at Hearth awhile back—are they still serving them?

Mix it Up: Stocking Your Home Bar

Glad to have this list. For glassware, also consider Fishes Eddy. Possibly cheaper than $4/per, especially in the back sale room.

Photo of the Day: Colorful Southwestern Salad

Yep, cojita and corn is correct!
Recipe is here, the dressing is super tasty.

Cook the Book: 'Gourmet Today'

My first cookbook was the Silver Palate.

Mixed Review: Pasta Partners Vodka-Less Vodka Cream Sauce

I'd be interested to know the ingredients—is it just herbs/salt/powdered bacon? Because you're adding milk and tomatoes yourself...

French in a Flash: Carrot Muffins with Sweet Chèvre Icing

Love the icing recipe! But agreed—you're going to get ripped apart around here if you use a mix. Also, mixes probably vary in sweetness/tastiness, so if you are using one, you should probably mention which one you like.

The Best Chocolate Chips for Cookies

feves, dark. I think they're from valrhona, bought at whole foods.

Can I make beef short ribs ahead of time?

You don't lose the fond if you brown in a skillet first, then deglaze and add everything to the slowcooker. Then it can cook SUPER low and slow for a million hours (or, like, 12.)

Red Currant Recipes

These muffins were super tasty!

I, too, was amazed by how few recipes I could find calling for red currants.

Eat for Eight Bucks: Shrimp Rolls with Homemade Chive Mayo

Lobster is actually pretty cheap this year...I've seen it for $8.99/lb at Chelsea Market, but these sound tasty! (And I'm actually not a huge fan of lobster anyway.)

The Crisper Whisperer: Zucchini and Corn Fritters Rule the World. For Reals

Yum! These sound awesome. And yay for Carolyn on Serious Eats!

For a twist, you could do these with part rice flour for a sort of pa jeon...delicious.

Cook the Book: 'Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies'

Once baked pie in one of those premade pie crusts in a foil pan. Took it out of the oven, pan buckled, hot pumpkin pie filling ALL over the floor.

Cook the Book: Simple Cherry Pie

Love that this doesn't have a top crust, just lets the fruit shine! Yum.

Cook the Book: Crepas Salguero

Yes—it sounds amazing. I wish these "Cook the Book" features really included recipe testing, though. Does Serious Eats need a hand?

Cook the Book: 'Bottega Favorita' by Frank Stitt

I'm a sucker for carbonara too, usually with bucatini.

Weekend Cook and Tell: 'Off-cuts' of Meat

I made some lamb shoulder chops, a cut I'd never worked with before. It was the cheapest thing on offer from Catskill Merino Sheep Farm in the Union Square Market. I rubbed them with a bit of curry powder and mustard, then broiled. They were SUPER juicy and delicious, though quite fatty and slightly difficult to eat. Probably not appropriate for company, but really great for a weekend dinner at home.

Has anyone found a replacement for Le Miu??

Kanoyama might be the best sushi in the neighborhood.

Wechsler's Currywurst Bratwurst, a Taste of Berlin in the East Village

Sure, late night this is a good idea. I'm all for that.
But $6 for a single Schaller & Weber bratwurst? Come on, it's not that hard to open a package of these on your own. This place should be making its own sausages.
