Banana bread pudding is a delectable new way to use up slightly ripened bananas and day-old bread.
Many variations of romesco sauce add roasted red peppers for a little sweetness. Here, the peppers and tomato are scorched on the grill alongside the chicken to keep things simple.
Say hello to the ultimate vegetarian lasagna.
If you spend hours a day in your car driving too and from work, you need these Amazon finds from @misskenzierae’s page. Sauce holders let you snack on the road, hooks keep your shopping bags off the floor, and between the seat storage compartment prevents things from falling under your seat.
Don’t be afraid of the anchovies in the ingredient list. They melt as they cook and don’t really taste fishy, adding a rich umami that pairs perfectly with tomatoes.
Thanks to the steak and asparagus, these skewers feel like an elegant Japanese-inspired appetizer, but they realistically only take 20 minutes to put together.
I was down the shore this weekend, enjoying the sea, the sun and the sweeping panorama of people without masks. Honestly, that was even more b…
Grill pineapple to caramelize the sugars and bring out the sweetness, pair with ice cream for a cool summer dessert.
The supply chain shortage just got fowl: Chick-fil-A is limiting the number of sauces it's giving out to customers because of limited stock.
This is a funny entry from Trader Joe's, a.k.a. the place we go to for frozen food and tiny cups of free coffee. This marinara wins a couple of points because of value — a jar, while small (18 oz., instead of the typical 24 or 25), costs only $1.39. And the taste is not bad, if a little herb-heavy. What's interesting is that while many jarred marinaras commit the sin of being too sweet, this one is nearly too salty.
Very good packaging on this — the label has a classy, Art Deco-ish feel. I'm not sure what involvement, if any, John Muir's family had in the development of this company, which started in 1991 and was acquired by General Mills in 2000, but the name holds weight, especially in California. I imagine John Muir walking among the sequoias, opening a jar of marinara, sticking a finger in and tasting it. He then strokes his beard and nods sagely.
Surprise! This wasn't nearly as bad as I had remembered — the blessings of low expectations. I anticipated Ragu being too sweet and tasting strongly of tomato paste rather than actual tomatoes. It's still both of those things, just not to the degree I thought.
It takes a cool hand to be one of history's biggest movie stars and have your own food business. But Paul Newman wasn't just interested in the color of money. There's an absence of malice in his wading into pizza, dressings and sauces, and the funds raised for charity prove he's no hustler.
