Salad Dressing Recipes. Tzatziki (Greek Cucumber-Yogurt Dip) - Cookbook Archaeology. Last week, the day after graduation, I was staring at a wall when I happened to recall a friend’s incredulity that I had not visited Kitchen Arts & Letters (i.e., cookbook heaven) in my years in New York; so, I decided to stop by before I left the city. I think it’s probably good I held off going there until I had a job; I picked up four books on my first visit.

Thankfully their used books are quite modestly priced, and they have a sale bin where I found “The Complete Greek Cookbook.” This find was well-timed: after many days of rainy nasty New England-ness, it’s finally starting to get warm up here. Which means my desire for hot foods (other than those off the grill) are dwindling fast. I only brought a handful of books with my to Boston; the ones I packed are mostly “hot climate” foods – Greek, Puerto Rican, Texan.

In my new Greek book I came across a recipe for tzatziki; I’ve been eating it constantly since it started to warm up. I like to chop my cucumber coarsely for this salad. 1. - StumbleUpon. @jonny6pak: AFAIC, marinades are NEVER the way to go. I've never had a piece of meat that was somehow made better by soaking it in something. A brine will help tenderize and will flavorize to the extent that you like salt (and yes is much better than any marinade I've had), but honestly, I think a good homemade rub is all you need 99.9% of the time. I rub chicken, pork, and beef with consistently good results. I also coat the outside of beef and pork with olive oil to help with searing. The only meat that gets anything wet at all is ground beef, which gets egg white and Worcestershire (along with oatmeal, cheese (grated or sometimes stuffed with blue cheese), (usually) onion flakes, salt and spices—and a coating of olive oil).

How To…Roast Garlic. In this post, I’ll be covering the step of roasting garlic. It’s a very simple skill and I’m sure many of you have down pat, but for those of you who don’t roast garlic on a regular basis, TRUST ME: you’re wandering around in a culinary void. And the only thing in the universe that will fill the void and turn you into the whole, well-rounded person your grandmother intended you to be is roasted garlic. The flavor is…well, there’s nothing like it on earth. The first thing you need to do is grab a bunch of heads of garlic. Try not to buy them too small. Then, cut off just enough of the top to expose all of the cloves inside. Next, find one of your oldest, dearest pie pans. Then, just tilt the pan around to coat the bottom thoroughly. Next, place the garlic heads, cut side up, in the pan.

They look a bit like some bizarre form of sea creature at this point, don’t they? Drizzle the exposed cloves with olive oil. Then, sprinkle the cloves with salt. Look. Here’s my dish of Kosher salt.

Uh-oh…this calzone shouldn’t be a calzone. Nope. It totally should be a picture of a pizza…topped with layers of ricotta, melted mozzarella, cubes of roasted butternut squash and broccoli rabe.
