in college i was a waitress and bartender at The Loring Bar & Cafe in Minneapolis. it is where i met alex, so it will always hold a very special place in my heart. it was a really great place to work - cool co-workers, great customers and excellent food. the one thing that we were known for was artichoke dip. i can't tell you how many times i ate that for dinner. it was incredible but since The Loring closed no other artichoke dip has even came close to replacing it. i have tried several recipes for artichoke dip that really sucked. too dry - to heavy - not enough flavor - i have covered them all. but this recipe is the last artichoke dip recipe i will ever need. it is similar to the Loring recipe - dare i say - it might be even better. let me put it this way - this is THE BEST artichoke dip!
Yes, homemade microwave popcorn, and it really works! I was skeptical. I didn’t believe it could be that easy, but IT IS! Lisa, from Snack Girl , has shared her how-to for Homemade Microwave Popcorn . It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3:
When I told my friends I was planning on making homemade mozzarella sticks for a guy’s weekend out of town the idea was met with a profound lack of enthusiasm. Everybody knows that I like to experiment in the kitchen, but somehow the idea of making a bar food staple like mozzarella sticks from scratch seemed like a complete waste of time to the group. After being lectured about the innumerable brands available in the freezer section at the grocery store and a heated debate about whether marinara or ranch is the better dipping accompaniment, I decided to risk further heckling and see if I couldn’t one-up T.G.I. Friday’s in my own kitchen. It might have been the alcohol, but the first batch was gone within a matter of seconds. Simultaneously crispy and gooey, these mozzarella sticks seem to defy the laws of physics and flavor.
These weren't as crazy amazing(cramazing?) as they look and sound, but they were still very good. They definitely need a few tweaks though to become a perfect recipe. The main issue which I knew might be a problem from the start is that the cheese explodes out of the dough well before the dough is finished cooking.
Don't these look better than fried mozzarella sticks that you get at T.G.I. McFuglies? Come on they have fresh thyme sprinkled all over the top. That's called classing up the joint right there. And while I am writing about these make sure you use whole milk ricotta.

On Fridays, I teach cooking classes to two kids in our neighborhood. They are pretty knowledgeable-so my job is easy:) I think it is fantastic that they want to learn how to cook at such a young age-they are in the 3rd and 4th grade. Since we don’t have any kiddos yet, I am glad I get to work with these kids. We have a great time in the kitchen.
I’m more of a classic buffalo sauce(Frank’s, butter, and vinegar) man myself, but I had these recipes for my favorite wings at Buffalo Wings Wings, so I thought I would share. Some of these may seem a little labor intensive, but they definitely taste a lot better with fresh ingredients. Enjoy.
If ever there were a group that had BrokeAss cooking down pat, it was the bubbes of Eastern European shtetls . With little money, but a plentitude of creativity (not to mention potatoes), these resourceful cooks whipped up amazing comfort food that is still enjoyed today. I was first introduced to knishes at Zaftig’s , where my friend Ryan and I would nurse hangovers on weekend mornings during college. These puffy, flaky knishes have all the healing power of chicken noodle soup—they make you feel warm and loved.

In Praise of Penguins These funny birds in fancy clothes may waddle in the snow, but when they reach the icy sea just watch how fast they go! Their song sounds like a donkey’s bray, they cannot soar or fly, yet penguins manage very well, and let me tell you why…
