Sugar Rush: Tofu Pudding at Amaz Soya

Me too Robyn. I haven't had the stuff for years. Totally craving some now.

Bake the Book: The Epicurious Cookbook

Pecan pie. This is my answer to Cook/Bake the Book questions way too frequently. (or not frequently enought....)

Serious Reads: Blue Bottle's New Coffee Primer

swagv, you sound uber-snobby about coffee. What kind of coffee book would you buy? Sounds like none, since you probably pretty hard set in your coffee ways.

"40 inventive recipes that incorporate coffee or taste good with a cup." sounds like there is one part where it discusses coffee without recipes, then another part that discusses how to make things that have coffee flavor or that you might eat with coffee.

Charlotte, NC: Burgers + Sushi = Unexpected Greatness at The Cowfish

I love using soft/spreadable cheeses in burgers rather than slices.

Also, that poster is awesome. Were there more like that?

Bacon and Egg Fried Rice

Salsa on fried rice? Not necessarily sure that this combination will work.

A Pizza My Mind: In Defense of Dessert Pizza

Pizza Hut lunch buffet as a teenager was awesome. I once ate the equivalent of 4 pizzas and then half a dessert pizza. Was so thirsty from all the salt that they eventually just left a pitcher and I started drinking straight from it.

Dessert pizza is awesome. If you don't like it, then don't eat it.

Cook the Book: 'Salty Snacks'

Salt and vinegar chips. Or possibly those hint of lime chips.

Does Lou Malnati's Serve the 'Most Life-Changing' Pizza in America?

Life changing isn't necessarily the same as "best".

Your life could be changed from "I don't like Chicago style pizza" to at least "I think it's acceptable."/"Would eat again."/etc. Since Lou Malnati's has a decent number of locations and also ships their pizzas. It could have changed more minds than others.

To eat at the "best" place when you already think you're going to like it could be argued to be not very life changing.

The Food Lab: The Best Korean Fried Chicken

I was waiting for you to bring out the booze almost right after I started reading. These wings look fantastic.

Making Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream at What's the Scoop in Portland, OR

@aharste: If you can source liquid nitrogen, then it isn't hard to do with "home" equipment.

Snapshots from the Serious Eats Pie and Wine Social in Brooklyn

I would also like the recipe for the oatmeal pie. I wonder if you can just sub in oats for pecans in a pecan pie recipe.

Confession: I Like Coke Zero

It's interesting that Coke Zero is apparently shameful to drink in restaurant kitchens, but apparently regular Coke and Diet Coke are okay.

@car1fsu: Coke tastes like chemicals too. All food and drink tastes like chemicals.

Burger King's New Chicken Parm

Seems like they forgot to melt the mozzarella like their ads are claiming. Not that I was really expecting them to.

Slurped: E-fu Noodles at Great NY Noodletown

I know Robyn is taking the picture, but it looks like you're sadly eating noodles alone at a big giant table.

Making Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream at What's the Scoop in Portland, OR

Interesting. Wonder how much increased production costs using liquid nitrogen adds (since normally using it is only done as a novelty). What are their prices like?

How to Throw a Dumpling Party

Libations and dumplings. Back in college, we would use beer bottles as spare rolling pins to increase dumpling skin production rate (then drink the beer of course).

Excellent Pork Ribs and Brisket at Gatlin's Barbecue in Houston

I was also expecting a picture of the rice. Maybe good but not photogenic?

Grilling: Pecan Stuffed Apples with Caramel Sauce

Add some pie dough to make them look like little pies.
