Savory Yogurt Bowls

January 9, 2015 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

If you're only eating yogurt with honey and fruit, you're missing out! Savory yogurt is popular in many cultures that have yogurt as part of their cuisine. In Turkey, cilbir is a savory breakfast involving yogurt and a poached egg doused with paprika or chile butter. In India, yogurt is used in multiple savory ways: added to curries, as a marinade for meat, sometimes acting as a cooling agent for all the lively, hot spices, other times adding a richness to round out a dish. You'll find strained yogurt, labneh, throughout the Middle East, often stirred with garlic or drizzled with olive oil and za'atar.

How to Deseed a Pomegranate

December 26, 2014 | Posted by Charlotte March

Pomegranates are a hallmark fruit of the holiday season. They look like an edible Christmas ornament -- one with an incredible inner architecture of bright, gem-toned seeds, bursting with flavor. One small problem: pomegranates can be a total pain in the you-know-what to deseed...if you don't know the trick, that is! Once you know the technique, less than a minute of work stands between you and a bowl of juicy pomegranate seeds.

Throughout the December holidays, we all do our very best to keep family traditions alive. Whether this is through family decorations or specific dishes or cultural customs, these traditions are what make our holiday gatherings truly special. I'm fortunate that my family's traditions are so delicious -- specifically, the always-present heaping dish of Christmas Eve pierogi!

Sweet Memories (aka IT'S COOKIE TIME)

December 17, 2014 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

When I was growing up, Christmastime was cookie time. At about six years old, I became my mother’s baking sous chef -- and my love of baking has only grown since then. While I was way too young to actually bake the cookies, I got to help with most of the prep: chopping the nuts for Italian Horns and Thumbprints in one of those old fashioned nut choppers, removing the Hershey’s Kisses wrappers for Peanut Butter Blossoms, and mixing the colored icings for the rolled sugar cookies.

Get Your Holiday Braise On

December 12, 2014 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

Let’s talk about the braise, baby! This festive, wintry dish of braised lamb shanks with toasted orzo, roasted garlic and slow-roasted tomatoes is a beloved Bobby classic from his former New York restaurant, Bolo. I worked in the kitchen and absolutely loved this dish -- but you certainly don't need to be a restaurant cook to make it!

Holiday Baking Essentials

December 2, 2014 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Come December, I've got one thing on the brain: BAKING! This is the one month that I get to indulge my intense love for making desserts (and my unrelenting sweet tooth) to the fullest. I've spent decades making every cookie, cake, muffin and tart under the sun -- not to mention some bettys, buckles, cobblers and crisps -- and learned quite a bit about kitchen tools along the way. I've compiled my list of favorites and essentials below, just in time for the sweetest part of the year.

We don't know about you, but the moment Thanksgiving was over, we started daydreaming about the feasts soon to come: holiday parties, holiday dinners, cozy meals in front of the fire, edible gifts to give (and hopefully receive!), and more cookies than our wildest sugar-high dreams.

Apples, Bar Americain-Style

November 24, 2014 | Posted by Elyse Tirrell

Before I was lucky enough to work out of Bobby’s office with my fellow B-Teamers, I was running the front door at his restaurant, Bar Americain, on West 52nd Street in New York City. I got to know the food really well, and of course had MANY favorite items on the Amercain brasserie-style menu. I often go back to eat those perfect mussels in a green chile broth (and will always order extra bread just for dipping), and the crab coconut cocktail. YUM! But I digress…Today I need to tell you about an incredible Bar Americain salad whose recipe I “stole” to contribute to my family Thanksgiving dinner last year.

Grill the Bird!

November 19, 2014 | Posted by Charlotte March

Thanksgiving is always a bit of a juggling act when it comes to getting everything on the table at the exact same time. Oven space is beyond scarce -- but can you imagine a world where you don’t have to tie up the oven by roasting the all-important bird? Welcome to it! This year, try grilling your turkey.

The True Spirit of Thanksgiving

November 16, 2014 | Posted by Sally Jackson

Thanksgiving: we talk a lot of turkey (or not), but it’s not just about the food. Thanksgiving is about showing gratitude for our good fortune -- and while one way to do that may be over a feast with our family, another is by extending a hand to those who may be less fortunate than we. Why not then take some time this holiday season to express our thanks by volunteering and spreading goodwill?

Thanksgiving for Two

November 14, 2014 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Thanksgiving doesn't always have to be an elaborate event; it can be the perfect excuse to relax and spend quality time with a special someone (or two or three). When making a meal for a few, rather than a crew, preparing a whole turkey can seem like a waste. (I, for one, am sick of turkey by the next day.) If you're hosting an intimate affair this holiday, why not try something a bit smaller for your Thanksgiving feast?

Pressed to Find a Better Way to Braise?

October 31, 2014 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

There is something so completely over-the-top delicious about a braised pork taco. The meltingly tender meat partners perfectly with spicy, bright salsas and crunchy slaws, tangy pickles and yes, a crumble of cheese sometimes for good measure. Do I have you craving some?

Toasted Almond Horchata

October 27, 2014 | Posted by Sally Jackson

Looking for a cool way to tame the heat of a hot-sauce-doused taco? Or a delicious way to beat the heat on a sweltering day? Do what the Mexicans do, and pour yourself an agua fresca, the literal translation of which is “fresh water.” These refreshing drinks are sweetened blends of water and fresh fruits, grains, nuts and/or seeds. Horchata is one such delicious beverage.
