Some people associate the Oscars with start-studded red carpets, best-dressed lists, and endless acceptance speeches. We associate it with something a little tastier—hot dogs!
Just like last year, we've got 9 hot dogs for each of the 9 nominees for Best Picture in this year's Academy Awards. Everything from "The Bloody Western Dog" for Django Unchained to "The Tiger Dog" for Life of Pi .
Based on the 19th century American Chautauqua movement, LongHouse Food Revivals are a series of annual gatherings of thought leaders across the United States organized and led by food writer Molly O'Neill. Last week, 150 food lovers gathered in Austin for a very special LongHouse Food Revival. Three cabritos (baby goats) were roasted over a live fire, craft brews and fine tequila flowed, new ideas were sparked, new bonds formed, and serious fun was had by all.
When I started as a freshman at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, I wasn't optimistic about the food options around town. But by the time I graduated last spring, I'd discovered that Middletown has way more to offer than meets the eye. From a Thanksgiving turkey sandwich that will rival your grandmother's turkey dinner to some of the best hash browns on the planet, check out my favorite spots around Wes.
With the school year starting up in the next few weeks, it's time to get organized. In addition to bed risers, bookends and Bananagrams, don't forget to pack in some gear to get you cooking and eating well. Whether you live in a dorm room with only a microwave and cereal bowl, or have upgraded to a living situation with a full on kitchen - stove and all - here are some ideas to bring (and stuff in your mini-fridge) when you head back to school.
Wesleyan University in Connecticut recently held Foodstock, a food conference dedicated to cooks and books.

Of the many speakers, some highlights included Ruth Reichl, Eric Asimov, Dorie Greenspan, Molly O'Neill, and Jane Stern. Check out some snapshots from Foodstock!
Oscars and hot dogs might not seem like the most likely combination. That is, of course, until you think of one of America's most beloved hot dogs, the Oscar Mayer Wiener, and then you wonder why the two haven't been paired together earlier. Here are nine Oscar-themed hot dogs inspired by each of the films nominated for Best Picture. Everything from "The Parisian Dog" for Midnight in Paris with pâté and Dijon vinaigrette to the pineapple and Sriracha "Hawaii Dog" for The Descendants.

Anyone else headed to the park for a show during these summer concert series? Sometimes all you need is a good loaf of bread, a hunk of cheese, and a bag of grapes. Other times, you're looking for something a little more inspired and real-dinner-esque. Finding the right foods to bring along isn't actually that simple. You want something that won't spoil, be too messy, or require much beyond your hands and plastic utensils.

What says summer better than a perfectly ripe peach? With its lovable, fuzzy skin and sweet, juicy interior a peach might be the best summer snack we can think of. Sure, you can throw peaches into any number of dishes or cocktails to sweeten them up—like in peach lemonade or over a salad—but this tasty fruit does just fine all on its own, thank you.
