Savory pies (and tarts and galettes, too) that will keep you warm and happy and full even as chilly weather and crispy leaves descend from above.
Zucchini is bad. Zucchini, in fact, is the worst vegetable. Uncooked zucchini exists in a vacuum of flavor. Cooked zucchini, on the other hand, tastes like what I imagine hot turtle water tastes like. How you can go from nothing to unholy with the mere introduction of heat is a testament to zucchini’s darkness. Zucchini is the cantaloupe of vegetables. Zucchini is the vegetable you pair with yellow squash and serve in vats to large groups of people you disrespect. Zucchini is a miserable cucumber.
Really, all that I know is that zucchinis (or zukes, as I like to call them) are damn healthy, damn versatile and damn delicious. They really are so terrific that every good person likes them.
Food processors are for 21st-century chumps. Go old-school and feel so much better than your technology-dependent friends.
I’m from Idaho and in Idaho we learn that you can survive on just potatoes and butter? All the nutrients you need are in potatoes except for a couple, which are all in butter. Is that true?
Every time they offer me a potato chip or french fry, it’s like a well-meaning relative insisting that “you just haven’t met the right guy yet.” Sorry, Aunt Helen, but it’s not a matter of the right guy or the right potato.
One of my favorite things that I started doing after I came out was learning how to cook some of my mom’s recipes and it’s made us a lot, lot closer than we ever were before.
“I honestly just Gryffindored my way through a lot of this process, using my supreme confidence in my skills as my guide.”
These roast chicken recipes will cure all ills and fill you up! What more could you want?
What do donor kebab, shawarma and tacos al pastor all have in common?
For the overachiever in you.
You could call these mushrooms anything really but the fact that you’ve introduced them as “tender” means she must respect them, and you.
Look, there’s an American Flag pizza in here. No excuses.
Everyone loves Hot Dogs, and I mean EVERYONE! I can’t think of a single person who would have any reason not to love them! I know for sure my best friend, Heather, loves them!
These meals and snacks serve well at room temperature and stay fresh for hours in your brown bag, backpack, or bra (maybe not your bra).
Some of these salads are sweet, some of these salads are spicy, all of these salads will impress your summer crush at that gay picnic you’re going to.
“I will lick that shit out of any allegedly “empty” sauce container of aioli regardless of its size in comparison to my tongue and how many people watch in horror or confusion when I refuse to let its gelatinous goodness remain clinging to the sides of its serving dish where it would otherwise remain unused, unwanted and unappreciated.”
Soda tastings are great if you’re underage, you and/or your friends don’t drink alcohol, or you just want to mix it up. Also, soda’s way cheaper than wine. Wine tastings are so 2000 and late.
People bring wine into movies. It’s fine. We’re all adults.
