Okay, so I was going to try to avoid using the word 'mushroomy' to describe this soup and subsequent pasta bake from the new Jamie Oliver's Comfort Food. But it's what they are, and frankly, that's a very good thing for them to be.

Make a fruit snack fun with these playful twists on nachos. Kids will gobble up pita chip "nachos" topped with Yoplait® Original Tropical Yogurt and berries, while grown ups can sub out the pita chips for pineapple "chips" for a healthy all-fruit snack.
Beefaroni, macaroni and beef, chili mac, Johnny Marzetti, or American chop suey, call it what you will, but whatever its origins, there's one thing for sure: the stuff is delicious. Tender pasta with a rich tomato and beef sauce flavored with garlic and oregano, cooked together with onions and peppers, and finished with cheese, this is Italian-American comfort food at its finest. Not only that, but it's a ridiculously easy dish to put together, cooked 100% on the stovetop, and requiring nothing more than a pot, a bowl, and about half an hour of your time.

You've come to the right place: after three and a half years of writing about cocktail technique on Serious Eats, I've gathered my tips, essential pointers, and the wisdom of a few stellar bartenders into one handy guide.
Spurred by reader demand, we go even deeper into the world of tomato-storage and come back with lots more data. Will our claim that refrigeration can be your best choice for tomato storage hold, or will we have to retract the whole thing? Drumroll please...
There are times when you can stand over the stove all day, slowly cooking that red sauce down. Then there are times when you need to put dinner on the table in under an hour. For those moments when convenience trumps patience, this is the red sauce to turn to. Simmered with plenty of garlic, dried oregano, red pepper flakes, and basil, this sauce can be whipped up in no time but still has that deep, rich, long-cooked flavor.
In today's edition of Breadmaking 101, we're going to delve into what happens when dough is rising, and get to know our soon-to-be good friends—the billions of yeast cells that make our wet blobs of dough into pillowy, airy wonders—a little better. Along the way, we're going to unpack what it means to divide and shape dough, and figure out how we can confidently and purposefully coax our dough into loaves, hopefully without making too much of a mess of ourselves.
I'm often asked why I gave up the freewheeling life of catering to settle down with the headaches of opening a permanent restaurant. One of my answers is staffing.
British food phenomenon Jamie Oliver's 16th (count 'em) cookbook, Jamie Oliver's Comfort Food: The Ultimate Weekend Cookbook is a cookbook to turn to when you're looking to make some new memories. By and large, the recipes take time, forethought, and a toll on your waistband. They're extravagant, yes, but that's okay, because they're also special.
Yes. You read it right. Fish AND cheese. Cuz's, a fish shack I recently visited in Barbados, was the inspiration for this week's recipes. There, it was easy to enjoy a just-caught red snapper with a side of rice and beans and a healthy dose of local hot sauce. Back home, I decided to make my own twist on this local dish as a one-pot meal.
From apple cider doughnuts to a challah bread pudding, we've got 22 Rosh Hashanah desserts to ring in a sweet New Year.
Most Javanese food can attribute its relative simplicity to the fact that it's an indigenous cuisine that has remained largely unaffected by outside forces, save for a bit of Chinese influence in certain dishes. Martabak, a roti-like stuffed fried flatbread, is a notable exception. Even on Java, folks I talked to said "this isn't Javanese food, it's Indian." Others trace its origins to the Middle East. Either way, it's one of the best street foods around.
Don't get me wrong—I'm not a health nut or calorie counter. But let's face it: the feeling you get after downing a bowl of creamy, cheesy Fettuccine Alfredo ain't the best. Wouldn't it be great to have a quick and easy version that has all the flavor of the cream-packed original, but with a cleaner flavor that doesn't leave you in a food coma?
We chat with 'The Wednesday Chef' Luisa Weiss, author of My Berlin Kitchen, about her most treasured cookbooks and the new dessert book she's writing.
This is red sauce. The slow-cooked, rib-sticking Italian-American stew designed to fill you up with equal parts flavor and pride. It's the kind of sauce for which you open up the windows while you're cooking just to make sure that everyone else in the neighborhood knows what you're up to. It's the kind of sauce you want your meatballs swimming in, your chicken parm bathed in, and the sauce that you want not just tossed with your spaghetti, but spooned on top in quantities that'd make a true Italian cry out in distress. The kind of sauce that tastes like it took all day to make, because it really took all day to make. And the best part? This version is worth every minute.
At a roadside diner in rural Pennsylvania, I came across a menu item I've never seen before: a "Greek omelet" made with feta and gyro meat. I took a shot in the dark and ordered it, and the result was exquisite.
A dense, fudgy brownie seems easy enough to make without flour; after all, isn't there flourless chocolate cake? The Everyday Art of Gluten-Free answers that question with marbled cheesecake brownies that are still plenty dense, but with a cake-like quality that supports the weight of a pound of cream cheese, thanks to author Karen Morgan's Cookie Jar Blend.
