Bake the Book: Desserts for Every Season

Strawberry rhubarb pie in the summer.

Eggplant, Squash, and Cherry Tomato Hash With Baked Eggs

Can you put layers of paper towels in the oven for 30 min? I'm so confused.

Bake the Book: Say It With Cake!

German chocolate. But I love them all.

This Week at Serious Eats World Headquarters

Oops. Apparently it was Kenji, not Hambone, who was waiting in line. But you get the point.

This Week at Serious Eats World Headquarters

Hambone was in San Francisco, not New York. Thus, the proper term would be "in line," not "on line." I have no source to cite for this other than the fact that only my weird East Coast friends refer to waiting "on line."

Cook the Book: 'The French Market Cookbook'

A really fresh margherita pizza.

Bake the Book: Glazed, Filled, Sugared, & Dipped

Favorite Brewery in Your State

Midnight Sun Brewery in Anchorage, AK. Drink the Sockeye Red IPA, pair it with a sweet cheeks pulled pork sammie. Alaskan Brewing Co. in Juneau is fun to visit but their beer pales in comparison and they already get plenty of attention.

Cook the Book: 'Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese'

Non-vegan cheese. Couldn't live without it.

Favorite BBQ/Picnic Appetizers/Snacks?

There are lots of recipes for watermelon feta salad floating around on the interwebz. The salad is really easy (and not too expensive) to make, and as an added bonus it tastes better after it's been marinating in the vinaigrette, so you can make it in advance.

Cook the Book: 'Franny's'

Cioppino is not particularly simple, but it's my favorite.

Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and Cheese

Is there any way to reheat this so I can bring it to a BBQ at someone else's house? I imagine it wouldn't be too delicious cold.

Cook the Book: 'Kitchen Garden Cookbook'

EVERYTHING! It would be particularly amazing to have regular access to fresh herbs.

Eat This Now: Pasta From Il Corvo Pasta in Seattle

As fantastic as that pasta may have been, I refuse to believe it even compared to a Paseo Caribbean Roast. Just typing those words makes my mouth water.

Cook the Book: 'Mastering the Art of Southern Cooking'

Thai, Vietnamese, or Burmese.

I hate paper coffee cups; solution?

Wow, this is for real? I've lived in four states over the past five years and have consistently tried to use my own cup exclusively. Granted, they're all on the West Coast, but one of them is Alaska and we hate the environment up here.

Cook the Book: 'Flour, Too'

Father's Day Giveaway: Win a KettlePizza Pro 22 Kit

Ordering lame toppings like pepperoni and green peppers on the pizza instead of not-lame toppings like pineapple and jalapenos.

Bake the Book: Bakeless Sweets

Do you have an acquired taste?

I used to hate olives, but all the cool kids seemed to like them, and they looked like such an appealing bar snack. I started with black olives and have somehow convinced myself into loving almost all varietals, though kalamatas are still a stretch.

Cook the Book: 'River Cottage Veg'

Cook the Book: 'The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen'

Shucking oysters while drinking ridiculously strong beverages at Bowens Island Restaurant in S.C.

Cook the Book: 'The Adobo Road Cookbook'

Bake the Book: Home Made Summer

Fresh corn on the cob.

Bake the Book: Old School Comfort Food: The Way I Learned To Cook

Warm bread with whipped butter.

Undercooked pie crust HELP!

I took a strawberry rhubarb pie out of the oven when I was way too tired last night and, after examining it this morning, am convinced that I took it out about 5 minutes early. What would you do in this situation? Would you stick it back in the oven, and if so, at what temp? Or would you just go with it? It's not raw undercooked (the filling was bubbling), but I'm afraid it's going to have a floury taste or the crust will be soggy if I'm not able to come up with a remedy.

Hummus without a food processor?

I own a KitchenAid. I own an immersion blender. I do not own a food processor, nor do I own a normal blender. Is it possible to make hummus without either of these devices? (Yes, I know I should own a food processor, but I'm moving to a different state in 2 months and am already going to spend a pretty penny to ship my kitchen.)
