Chickpeas are a staple in my pantry, as they are in Bobby's restaurants. My family's favorite preparation: oven roasted with sweet cinnamon and honey. This easy snack is a sweet, crunchy, totally craveable, and best of all, healthy treat.

In our continued search for the hottest and best workouts in New York City, a few weeks ago we signed up for a class at CityRow in the Union Square neighborhood of Manhattan. A fifty-minute rowing class? We were intrigued and a bit scared, quite frankly.

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.

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!

This holiday weekend, like most weekends in the summer, you will find me in front of my grill doing what I do best...cooking for a crowd...Friends and family will drop in and out all weekend and they will all have one thing in common...empty stomachs that need to be filled! So this July 4th, I am serving up juicy Crunch Burgers, Spiced Rubbed NY Strip Steaks with Sherry Vinegar Steak Sauce and instead of the usual pickle and mustard based potato salad, (not that there is anything wrong with that) I am thinking of something a bit more flavorful... grilled new potatoes, crispy bacon and green onion tossed in a garlicky buttermilk dressing...YUM! And, since no celebration is complete without a fabulous cocktail, there will be pitchers of Rose Sangria, scented with summer peaches and raspberries, in the fridge all weekend long! Make it!
Be safe, drink responsibly, and take a few minutes to thank all those brave men and women who fought hard and gave their lives for our freedom! Happy July 4th!

May is all about vegetables on bobbyflay.com and one of the most popular springtime vegetables is rhubarb. That’s right, I said vegetable. Did you know that rhubarb is actually a vegetable, not a fruit?

Rhubarb: you either love it or hate it. There really seems to be no gray area when it comes to this ruby red vegetable…that’s right, I said vegetable. In the US it is considered a fruit, but it actually is a vegetable!

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.

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.

Crisps, Cobbler, Buckles and Bettys! Do you know the difference between these delicious fruit desserts?

The biggest food holiday of the year is only a few weeks away. Are you ready?!? The B-Team has compiled our recipes (stay tuned all month!), along with a list of our favorite kitchen tools to make the big day a whole lot easier. Sure, we could live without some of these gadgets...but we'd rather not!

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.
