  • Hatch Green Chile Stew

    A plethora of peppers come into season every September, but for me, the most exciting is the Hatch green chile. It’s a versatile chile that can come in many different levels of heat (it’s the choose your own adventure chile), and I can’t think of a better meal that features them than green chile stew. […]

  • Salted Peach Frozen Custard

    I believe that some of the best recipes are only completed when they are changed by time. The development of this ice cream has relied on me chasing a memory, striking a balance between matching the beautiful flavor I remember with the skills and knowledge I’ve accumulated that allow me to make better ice cream […]

  • Hurried Hummus

    I’ll be forward here: the best hummus recipe I’ve ever used is the one gifted to the world by Yotam Ottolenghi, originally published in his cookbook Jerusalem. I make it from time to time, and it’s not necessarily difficult, but you need to start making it the day before so that you can soak your […]

  • Make Your Own Damn Tahini

    One time I went to the store to buy tahini and discovered that, to purchase merely a cup of the stuff, it would cost me $11. $11. I bought it, but good God I was mad about it. When I went to use it, I discovered that not only was it exorbitantly expensive, it was […]

  • Master Post: Everyday Noods

    This is our first post for a campaign that we are calling “master posts.” The goal with these is to help people understand that they can cook the elemental building blocks of cuisine that are perceived to be more technically advanced. If you get comfortable with them (and you really can), they can become habits, […]

  • Cucumber Salad with Feta and Herbs

    This salad is multi-purpose: it holds its own, and it can be a side dish; you could even treat it like a table salsa and make it for parties where you’ve got hummus, baba ghanouj, or labneh (or all three!) on your table. We like to use it almost like a relish, a spoonful of […]

  • The Best Mug Brownie Recipe on the Internet

    I worked really hard for this recipe. It’s been tested and tested and tested, and I have to say that, after comparing it to a multitude of other online mug treat recipes I tested alongside it, I feel like I can safely say that this is the best mug brownie recipe on the internet. It’s […]

  • Perfect Stovetop Mac and Cheese

    To this day, I still don’t know how I got so lucky with this recipe. I’ve been making it for years now, and it hasn’t really changed at all. Nate and I still swear that it’s the most satisfying mac and cheese we’ve ever had. It’s rich, tasty, and can be ready in about 10 […]

  • Brothless Pho

    Sometimes our cravings are confusing. I want iced coffee! In December. I want a big bowl of steaming hot ramen! In July. I want ice cream! For breakfast. I want breakfast! At fucking midnight. Our cravings are never wrong, but sometimes they don’t give you the whole picture of what you truly want. Maybe there’s […]

  • Wild Mushroom Stroganoff with Red Miso

    People who love to cook often love to cook for other people, and the more comfortable and creative we get, the more adventurous we become with cooking for the ones we love. We start to tweak and mash recipes together in an effort to create something new, hoping that one of them will rise above […]
