Photo: HarryKiiM Stock (Shutterstock)Besides the water bath, the notorious cracking, a long bake time, and an unimaginably long cooling time, cheesecake has only one bother: chunks of unblended cream cheese.

Add Pine Nuts to Your Meatballs

Photo: Allie Chanthorn ReinmannI don’t think I’ve met a meatball I didn’t like, but once in a while, one has surprised me. Sometimes I’m smitten by an unusual meat blend, or maybe an unexpected spice. Recently, it was a surprise ingredient that got me: For enhanced richness, nuttiness, and pleasant texture in your meatballs, throw…

What If You Put Graham Cracker Crumbs in Your Meatballs?

Photo: Claire LowerI primarily associate graham crackers with cheesecake and after-school snacks. Traditionally, I have not associated them with meatballs, let alone ham balls, an Iowan delicacy I learned about just a few days ago.Ham balls are kind of what they sound like—a combination of ground ham and ground beef rolled into balls. Simple enough—but…

“How to chop an onion” is to food videos as “how to do a perfect cat eye” is to makeup tutorials; both have been done to death, yet people keep clicking, because both topics are critically important. And you never know when you might learn something new. I thought I was quite learned in the…

You Should Start Soup Season With This Garlic Mayo Soup

Photo: Allie Chanthorn ReinmannI’m one of those strange birds that enjoys a hot bowl of soup any time of year—sweating over a steaming bowl in the summer is just my way of celebrating the greatness of soup. But I understand that fair-weather soup eaters might only enjoy it in the winter, and since we’re gearing…

The Pickle Sandwich Deserves Your Respect

Photo: Claire LowerOne of my favorite childhood snacks was a large Clausen pickle, eaten alongside cubes or slices of sharp cheddar cheese. I would take alternating bites of each, unencumbered by cracker or bread. Usually, I would wash it down with Diet Coke (because even at a young age I understood the importance of cleansing…
You Should Make These Deviled Egg Crackers

You Should Make These Deviled Egg Crackers

0
Photo: Claire LowerI have a lot of thoughts and feelings about deviled eggs and the right way to make them. But recently, I have become semi-obsessed with “deconstructed” and “reimagined” deviled eggs. I’m a big fan of un-deviled eggs and deviled egg salad, and it looks like I’ll be adding Martha Stewart’s “Cheater’s Deviled Eggs”…

Unless you have an uncreative, uncurious mind, you know that “vegetarian” does not mean “bland.” Sure, bland vegetarian food exists, but have you ever had a baked, under-seasoned chicken breast? Meat doesn’t always equal flavor, particularly when we’re talking about broth.Chicken broth is good and all, but you usually have to add a few aromatics…
