Michael Ruhlman's review of Nathatn Myhrvold's Modernist Cuisine. [NYTimes.com]
*I lust after this book, but I can't justify the $625 price. (Even if it is on sale for only (only!) $461.26 at Amazon.)
**Bonus: Look at the jaw-dropping photography: The Wok Shot [Kenji Alt, seriouseats.com]
Watch Pam Make Quick, Easy Lo Mein [ThreeManyCooks.com]
*I'm a self-taught home cook...by cooking my way through Pam Anderson's How to Cook Without A Book. In this video, Three Many Cooks (AKA Pam and her daughters Maggie and Sharon) show how to make a weeknight Veggie Lo Mein. Need a quick, one dish, weeknight dinner? Pam's got you covered.
**Bonus: Pam versus Maggy, Pot Braised versus Slow Cooker Barbecued Beef. The winner? Whoever gets to eat either of the recipes.
Rick Bayless shows Christopher Kimball how to make Empanadas [AmericasTestKitchen.com]
*Speaking of how I became a self-taught home cook - Rick Bayless's Salsas That Cook and my subscription to Cooks Illustrated were also huge influences. Put the two together? I'm there. This was a Sunday Dinner project for me and the kids, and it was a big hit.
**Bonus: Bloopers from Cooks Country.
One Pot Meal: Mini Meatball Pressure Cooker Broth [Hip-Cooking.com]
*I love my pressure cooker, and I can't wait to try this recipe.
*Sure, you can read everything I wrote about winter grilling. Or, you can watch Mike's thirty second video. If the sound of fat popping in the rotisserie drip pan (at the 0:17 mark) doesn't make you want to go out and grill regardless of the temperature, then nothing I can say will change your mind.
