@Robin Bellinger Can I ask what brand of non stick pan you use? I'm in the market for one that is oven safe and non stick. Thanks!

Is dating a picky eater a dealbreaker for anyone?!

Yes, it's an absolute deal breaker!

Dinner Tonight: Skillet Macaroni and Cheese

oh and i picked up some lump crab at costco and added it into this recipe...definitely didn't suck :)

Dinner Tonight: Skillet Macaroni and Cheese

I made this last night and it was delicious!! I may have used 9inch pan though because the bread crumbs were a little much. I love a crusty topping, but 2 cups plus cheese was a too thick. Great recipe and it certainly will serve 6

Dinner Tonight: Pan Roasted Chicken with Olives, Capers, and Vermouth

Thanks for the recipe! I'm going to try it out tonight :)

Where to eat in SF?

Welcome to SF! Definitely don't miss my favorite burrito place: Papalote. A-freakin-mazing

What do you miss? (to: expats and others!)

I know the question was directed at expats, but moving to a different US city can sometimes feel like a different country.

I'm from Seattle and now living in SF. I miss the hell out of Pagliacci Agog Pizzas. If only they would open a chain in San Francisco!

Double the meat, double the fun

Thanks Markbb, unfortunately I'm in a small San Francisco apt without access to a grill. Luckily my apt is freezing (especially in chilly SF summers), so heating up the house wouldn't be a bad thing :)

How to cook butternut squash

I subscribe to Farm Fresh To You and got a butternut squash in my box this week. I have NO idea how to cook it, any suggestions out there? I don't have a food processor, so I can't cream anything into a soup.

Double the meat, double the fun

I'm thowing a little party at my house tomorrow and I bought two huge hunks of marinated steaks. I've had one before and it was delicious, but I had to bake it longer than suggested since my oven's old and cracked out.

Here is my question: Will it be horribly wrong for me to cook both hunks of meat in my oven at the same time? They're supposed to take an hour a piece. Could I just raise the temp and cook for longer than usual? Will it cook at all or will my dinner party be a disaster?


I don't know how to cook chicken

I had a chicken breast. I threw it in a pan, it cooked for 9 minutes on medium - high heat. The bottom was getting brown but the middle was completely raw. I flipped it over and kept cooking until it was done in the middle. Which resulted in a burnt outside and a dry on the inside. I seriously don't know how to cook chicken. Any help??

Thanksgiving Talk: Elise Bauer of Simply Recipes

Elise Bauer. [Photograph: Ree Drummond] Mama Bauer's turkey stuffing. [Photograph: Elise Bauer] We are longtime fans of the recipes and want-to-eat-the-computer-screen photography by Elise Bauer of Simply Recipes. She took the time to chat with us about her Thanksgiving plans this year—which will, absolutely not, involve the green bean casserole with fried onions. Where are you feasting? At my mom and dad's house in Carmichael, California, with all of my siblings—there are six of us kids. We like to keep it really simple. Thanksgiving is not a time for experimentation. There's enough chaos and stress with all the family showing up, we want the actual meal to be as easy as possible. What's on the menu? Any family recipes... More
