flapjacks

Golden syrup — picture corn syrup, but made with cane sugar and lightly cooked for a caramel-y vibe — is a central flavor in flapjacks, which is frustrating as it can be hard to find in the U.S. (Although Amazon sells it in many sizes, including the one I keep around.) (It’s also my favorite thing to put in pecan pie instead of corn syrup, if you need more convincing to pick some up.) I…

There are a few things I think of as secret weapons in the kitchen.  You know, skills that are pretty simple once we get a few things right and inspire self-confidence in the kitchen.  A rich, chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie is on this list of kitchen secret weapons, as is a simple Roasted Chicken.  Both inspire comfort and confidence.  Also on our list of kitchen secret weapons is homemade caramel for its secret ease and…

As we discussed when we made Crispy Tofu Pad Thai, fish sauce brands can vary a lot in their salty intensity so any recipe that uses it should be adjusted to taste. It’s not written this way below because the dressing should be all you need for flavor, but I usually toss my cucumber slices with a splash of rice vinegar, a splash of toasted sesame oil, and two pinches of salt because certain small…

Prepare tofu: Drain the tofu, and place it on a few paper towels; place a few more towels over it.

When you can’t wait any longer, cut it into 1/2 to 3/4-inch cubes. Prepare noodles: Meanwhile, place noodles…

asparagus and egg salad with walnuts and mint

I found my new favorite spring lunch salad while I was hiding from a pot of brisket, which is the kind of thing that happens three days after Passover. Day one (which is actually day two or three after you’ve cooked the brisket, because you know I’d never lead you astray, right?) is lovely: my goodness, why don’t we eat long-cooked, saucy slabs of beef more often? Day two isn’t so bad either, albeit a…

Green Pancakes – Three Ways

We love green pancakes (aka spinach crêpes) in our family and are constantly exploring more ways to incorporate them into various meals. We have got lots of examples and ideas in our cookbooks but here are three new favorites:1. Add mustard, lentils, sliced tomato and cheese to you pancakes. Fold them up, bake them quickly until the cheese melts and serve with a fresh lentil and melon salad.2. Fill them with sweet potato, spinach, feta, yogurt and za’atar. Then roll them…

Hippie Pizza + video

Two things spinned in my head when I woke up Wednesday morning. Both were related to pizza. I had fallen asleep while watching the first episode of David Chang’s new Netflix series Ugly Delicious. Pizza and authenticity was the theme but the first thought in my head was actually pie. Chang visits a pizza chef in Brooklyn that makes a case for traditional American-Italian toppings but what fascinated me more than his arguments was that he always referred to his pizzas as…
