Cruftbox When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA, a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. After seeing how much my daughter enjoyed them (she ate my entire cupcake and I had to order a second one), I decided I had to try making them at home. Easter Candy Bars!

Meal planning my way (for @velabronx) I'm never sure what the etiquette is regarding jumping into a conversation on Twitter, but nine times out of ten, I'll butt in: I figure if it were private/personal, it wouldn't be on Twitter. Besides, isn't that kind of the point of Twitter? That being said, I've been, uh, not-replied-to my fair share of times, but I digress... Anyhow, I butted into a conversation yesterday about meal planning and how difficult it is and couldn't help but chime in with my $0.015.
www.menshealth.com/mhlists/gourmet-sandwiches-for-guys/printer.php/ From the molten yolk and bacon crunch of a hand-held breakfast, to the gooey charm of grilled cheese for lunch, nothing matches the simple pleasures of well-made sandwiches. They're quick to assemble, infinitely adaptable, easy to eat, and immediately satisfying—the very definition of good food. The 25 sandwiches you're about to meet can be thrown together during the average basketball halftime or, with practice, during the seventh-inning stretch. (Who needs hot dogs, anyway?) Use each recipe as a basic road map, but bring your talent for finding creative routes. You'll easily reach your final destination: a full belly and a satisfied smile.
Fancy Grilled Cheese 9 Ways The cold weather months really put me in the mood for grilled cheese sandwiches and soups. And although Elsie and I are huge fans of a classic and simple grilled cheese sandwich, we thought it would be fun to come up with some variations for a family lunch we hosted over the weekend. Elsie also brought her panini maker over to my house, it was my first time using one and I've got to say- I'm now a huge fan!

Maple & Hazelnut Encrusted Pork Sirloin Tip Roast + A Giveaway Halloween is getting closer, and before I start sharing a few spooky recipes, I wanted to share one last Porktober recipe for the month. This recipe features the delicious sirloin tip roast, a juicy cut of meat from the upper back that is as versatile as it is flavorful. This particular cut does best when cooked slowly, so I roasted it at a lower temperature for a longer period of time. I also salted it and rubbed it down with maple the night before to allow time for the flavor of the two to soak deep into the tissue of the meat. When I was ready to begin cooking, I let the roast rest at room temperature for 40 minutes before placing it in the oven, since a cut of this size will cook more evenly if is has been allowed to come closer to room temperature than if you put it in the oven straightaway from the refrigerator. The result of all these small considerations was one of the juiciest, most flavorful pork roasts I've ever had.
