@KTempesta: I tested FF3 on Mac and PC, and could not reproduce the problem you're experiencing. I have to agree with Adam -- perhaps you are clicking on the "x comments" link, which, by design, takes you immediately to the comments on a post.

Dang. I read it as National Make Dinner for Men Night.

@windattack: I assure you, the huge candy corn photo is for real. I photoshopped Erin into the picture merely to show scale.

Out of interest, I'd like to use this thread to gauge people's interest in having RSS and email updates for comments. If you could subscribe to an individual post's comments via RSS or email, would you?

Slice vs. Vice: Stone-Coal WRONG


New York vs. New Jersey on 'How I Met Your Mother'

@VerasTastyFreeze: New York is, in some ways, defined by culinary landmarks. When challenged as to why one should live in New York, some of the only legitimate reasons are the food.

Talk Improvements

Talk, Talk, Talk!Welcome to the new and improved Serious Eats: Talk! We wanted to make it easier for serious eaters to keep up with the increasing number of conversations that take place here every day. This is just the first of many site enhancements and features we've been working on. Here's a quick summary of the improvements we've made:

We redesigned the top level pages: It's now easier to scan the most recent talk posts and their comment counts at a glance.

We added a new Talk category: "Food Media and News." This is the place to talk about food television, films, magazines, newspapers, and news.

We took "In the Kitchen" and, for clarity, renamed it "Cooking and Baking": This is still the place for conversations about cooking, baking, recipes, and everything else in the kitchen. We also renamed "Site Talk" to "Site Feedback."

Did You Know?

Your profile page links to your most recent talk posts, comments, and responses to your comments (comments on a post submitted after yours). Keep tabs on the conversations you are participating in on Serious Eats by checking your profile page. Your profile pages is linked to wherever your username appears.

Update your profile page!

While you're checking out all the recent comment activity on your profile page, why not take a moment to update your profile page and tell your fellow serious eaters a little more about yourself? There's a handy link to edit your profile ("Edit my account") under your username in the top right login box.

What do you think of the new and improved Talk? We want to know! Let us know in the comments.

How do I cook a goose?

I'm thinking about cooking a goose for Christmas -- is cooking a goose like cooking a turkey or a chicken? Just season it and throw it in the oven at 350?

More Artichoke Craziness, But the Truth Hammer Rests

The velvet bag where the Truth Hammer is kept. Red, naturally. Sometimes the mere threat of overwhelming power is more effective than the indiscriminate use thereof. This holds for the Truth Hammer, as well. Therefore, I'm only glancing in the general direction of this trusty Slice device as I write. The Truth Hammer will remain in its velvet bag as I point out the words of Village Voice guest blogger Haily Eber (my emphasis): The Artichoke Slice at Artichoke Basille's Pizza & Brewery was recently featured in Time Out's "100 Best..things we ate and drank this year" and hailed...

New Site Feature: Favoriting

Artichoke Basille's Artichoke Slice a 'New Classic'?

Say wha, Time Out New York? It's hammer time! It's that time of year. The annual year-end round-ups are coming fast and furious. (Don't worry, homeslices, I'm workin' on them myself.) Today, Time Out New York drops its lists. For the most part, they're pretty solid. But I just had to reach in to the ol' Slice Bag o' Tricks and pull out the rusty but trusty Truth Hammer. See that nonsense above? The weekly magazine is naming Artichoke Basille's signature artichoke slice a "new classic." Please. We love the Artichoke regular and square slices, even if they are...

Ramp Compound Butter

Ramps are only in season for about a month or two, but there are a few ways to preserve them so you can enjoy their flavor all year long. My favorite long-term preservation technique is making ramp compound butter and storing it in the freezer. More
