Make no mistake, the bowl is definitely having a moment. Açai bowls, grain bowls, savory porridge bowls…all the cool kids are eating them (at least that’s how it appears on Instagram). Is it trendy? Yes. But is it also an awesome, endlessly customizable, easy method for delicious clean eating? YES. I’m definitely on the bowl bandwagon.

The poor, maligned fruit cake…probably one of the most hated cakes in the existence of baking. Is it any wonder? Would you want an incredibly dense, overly sweet, horribly boozy “cake” chock-full of fluorescent-colored candied fruit pieces?

In December, with holiday parties filling up every weekend, I thought it would be a great idea to reintroduce Bobby’s take on the perfect party hors d’oeuvre: shrimp cocktail. Next time you have a craving for this well-loved appetizer, why not mix it up? Trade in the familiar red stuff for some tomatillo-horseradish cocktail sauce, Bobby's addictively zesty take on the classic.

Holiday season is well underway, and you know what that means: people are BUSY! With that in mind, I developed a festive recipe that's quick enough to serve on a weeknight (with some make-aheads), and beautiful and impressive enough to serve as the centerpiece for a holiday meal.

It seems there are a million variations on the humble latke, from the outlandish to the old school. The one thing that everyone seems to agree on: you can’t celebrate Hanukkah without them (that and that their grandmother’s latkes were the best around…).

Leftovers might just be the best part of Thanksgiving dinner. Once the food coma has lifted and the those words “I’ll never eat again!” are long forgotten, a secret trip to the fridge for just one more serving of poached pears, or just a teeny sliver of gratin is always in order. And Bobby’s favorite Thanksgiving sandwich (see below)? It's enough to send you into a sweet tryptophan oblivion.

Every year, about this time, I take part in The Great Cranberry Debate. It goes something like this (and it’s entirely in my head): Do I stick with my favorite simple sauce or branch out? Bobby makes a clementine cranberry sauce that’s so good, it has inspired me to try something new this year (while still making the classic, of course).

What would you serve if you were making a vegetarian Thanksgiving? This was the very question we asked ourselves recently.

Growing up, I got my first taste of pumpkin each year at the Thanksgiving table and not a moment before. I waited all year for my Mom’s famous pie to be served, my (rather large) slice piled high with freshly whipped cream. Fast forward many years later, and pumpkin spice flavored everything is everywhere!

Bobby may be best known for his skills at the grill, but here's a little-known fact: brunch is his favorite meal of the week. He loves it so much, in fact, that he wrote an entire book about it.

Gorgeously vibrant, orange-hued persimmons are the perfect color for a fall tablescape. But what do to with these autumnal beauties beyond piling them in a bowl for a centerpiece? We've devised a handful of ways to easily enjoy these underappreciated fall fruits (and not just as eye candy).

Packed with complex carbohydrates and fiber, delicious and hearty whole grains play an important part in the Mediterranean diet. Look beyond rice and pasta, because it’s worth getting to know farro, amaranth, millet, freekah and wheat berries. From the ubiquitous grain salads of the region to barley studded Italian minestrone soup to a purple-tinged French crepe made with buckwheat flour, there are as many traditional recipes as there are modern takes on these ancient grains. And yes! They’re delicious – Bobby wouldn’t have them all over GATO’s menu if they weren’t, but just as importantly to me, at least, whole grains are a healthy choice.

What is an heirloom tomato? This is a question that plagues many a farmers’ market goer. There are varying definitions – the Wikipedia page claims that they are no more natural than the hothouse reds you see in the dead of winter at Gristede’s while other sites tout the history of these heritage fruits.

Corn is busting out all over in late summer! Everywhere you look you will see bright green husks piled high in your grocery store or on the stands at your local farmer’s market. Before you fill your cart or recyclable bag here’s a few things you should know.

Every once in a while, you may come across a recipe that calls for a peeled tomato. Fussy as it may seem, it can really make a difference in the final texture of the dish. And it's not much work at all...I promise!
