  • 7 Starter Bartending Tools for the Budget-Minded 27 Mar 2015 | 11:40 am

    While there are dozens of bar tools available from liquor stores to housewares, there are really only 7 tools that you need to get your home bar started, and most of them are very inexpensive, or at least have lower-priced alternatives. Here is a list of recommendations. Continue reading →

  • Vindaloo Voodoo: Recipe 25 Mar 2015 | 11:57 pm

    Earlier this week, we ran Mike Stines's feature Lamb: It's Not Just for Easter Anymore over at the Super Site. The Vindaloo recipe packs a .50 caliber heat wave so we're excerpting it here. Enjoy! Continue reading →

  • Scientists Profile 170 Year Old Beer 25 Mar 2015 | 2:01 am

    Apparently, beer sitting in a shipwreck for 170 years tastes about as skunky as you'd expect. Just as the scientists who smelled the funk off of a brew fitting that description in 2010. When they popped one open and took a whiff, the funk rivaled a middle school boys' locker room. Continue reading →

  • Santa Anita: California’s Largest KCBS Event Ever 23 Mar 2015 | 1:48 am

    This year's Santa Anita Winners Circle BBQ Championship was huge. At least for California. With 103 teams battling it out for $X in prize money, it was the largest KCBS event in the state's history. Continue reading →

  • The BBQ Guru’s Bob Trudnak: Interview 20 Mar 2015 | 12:08 pm

    The BBQ Guru's Bob Trudnak and I have played phone tag for an interview for years. This is mostly my fault but we finally nailed down a Q&A session earlier this week. He's the main man for The BBQ Guru's competition team and I asked him about moving into barbecue, what he likes to make, and his plans for getting into the World Food Championships so he can add a second WFC rib win to his belt.

  • Save Some Coffee for Cocktail Hour 28 Mar 2015 | 1:00 pm FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    A cup before work, a cup to get through 3 p.m. — why not have a cup during happy hour? Coffee cocktails might be exactly what you need: something that melts away the stress of the day while simultaneously boosting your energy for late-night laundry. Add in some rum or chocolate, and you’ll enjoy your caffeine fix more than ever. Whether you’ve just finished a big dinner with friends or you’re spending a Friday evening in alone, these sips are sure to put a smile on your face.

    Pitch-Dark Coffee Stout (pictured above)
    Why not have both brews—coffee and beer—at the same time? Coffee liqueur and espresso give you a bit of a jolt while stout rounds out the richness of the drink.

    Vanilla, Almond and Cocoa Latte
    With vanilla, almond and chocolate flavors, this chilled drink is good enough to pass around for cocktail hour or dessert. Just dissolve espresso powder in some milk and add the liqueurs. Don’t forget the chocolate shavings on top—they’re essential.

    Dressed-Up Irish Coffee
    This cup of joe is satisfying no matter what you’re craving; it’s got brown sugar, Irish cream whiskey and peppermint schnapps. And just in case that’s not enough, a big dollop of whipped cream with dark chocolate tops it all off.

    Coffee Milk Punch
    Heads-up: This is no ordinary shake. The ice cream is traded for milk, half-and-half and some bourbon. And coffee, vanilla extract and sugar are added in for good measure.

    Chocolate Stout Affogato Egg Cream
    The ultimate in ice cream shop throwbacks, the egg cream, gets a makeover with coffee liqueur and chocolate stout. And if you can’t find chocolate stout, any stout will do. Then, just add a scoop (or two) of your favorite chocolate ice cream and enjoy!

  • 6 Essential Pantry Ingredients and 3 Surprising Ways to Use Them 28 Mar 2015 | 7:30 am FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    6 Essential Pantry Ingredients and 3 Surprising Ways to Use ThemAs the mom of four kids under age 6, I’ve found the secret to stocking a useful pantry: Every item needs to be versatile. From breakfast to lunch and snacks through dinner, my favorite pantry items can be used over and over again in totally different ways.

    Old-Fashioned (Whole) Oats: I buy the generic store brand. While we make our share of oatmeal in the morning — three minutes in the microwave, then drenched in whole milk and sprinkled with chia seeds and dried fruit — there’s so much more!

    Breakfast: Banana Oat Cup Muffins with Peanut Butter and Jam

    Snack: 2-Ingredient Cookies

    Dinner: New Classic Meatloaf


    Raisins: Sure, they’re great as a snack straight up, but raisins are so good in so many other kid-friendly ways, like these:

    Snack: No-Bake Chocolate Fruit and Nut Bars

    Lunch: Gingered Coleslaw with Golden Raisins

    Dinner: Sausage and Spinach with Raisins Over Rice

    Honey: Consider honey for everything from a drizzle on top of plain yogurt to start the day to dinner’s secret ingredient. It is stocked in my pantry always.

    Breakfast or Snack: Blueberry Muffins Sweetened with Only Honey

    Dinner: Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry with Noodles

    Dinner: Apple Honey Drumsticks from Food Network Magazine

    Potatoes: Whether they’re russets, Yukon golds or babies, potatoes can become almost anything, anytime of day.

    Breakfast: Giada De Laurentiis’ Salami, Bacon and Spinach Hash

    Brunch or Dinner: Ina Garten’s Potato Latkes

    Lunch or Dinner: Slow-Cooker Potato Soup with Toppings

    Quinoa: The beauty of this seed is how fast it cooks, not to mention how that built-in pop of protein ensures a hearty dinner, even if you forgot to thaw the chicken. It’s an excellent base for baby food and works in tons of other family favorites:

    Breakfast or snack: DIY Fruit Bars with Quinoa

    Dinner: Guy Fieri’s Turkey-and-Quinoa-Stuffed Peppers

    Dinner: Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Chicken with Quinoa in Mustard Sauce

    Marinara Sauce: Yes, marinara sauce is typically limited to dinner, but, boy, are the options wide open from there. A few of our kids’ favorites:

    Baked Pasta with Spaghetti Squash

    The Pioneer Woman’s Easy Calzones

    Giada’s Eggs in Purgatory

  • Japan Has Apple Pie and Carrot Kit Kats for Easter 27 Mar 2015 | 1:00 pm FN Dish – Food Network Blog

    Kit KatsWhen it comes to Kit Kat creativity, we American candy-bar lovers have nothing on our Japanese counterparts. In Japan, where Kit Kats are crazy popular, Nestle offers a variety of limited-edition Kit Kat flavors, many of them season- and holiday-specific.

    You got your cheesecake-flavored Kit Kats (of various sorts), your pineapple Kit Kats, your kiwifruit Kit Kats, your maple Kit Kats, your choco-banana Kit Kats – even your baked potato Kit Kats and your soy sauce Kit Kats. You got your Christmas Kit Kats, your Halloween Kit Kats and your cherry-blossom-season Kit Kats.

    This year, for the first time, Nestle is offering special Easter-edition Kit Kats: Apple Pie and Carrot flavor.

    With a slice of pie, an egg and a cute bunny on the packaging and “Lucky Easter” messaging, the 12-pack of mini Kit Kats went on sale on March 16 for 540 yen (about $4.45), RocketNews24 reports. There will be 13 different Easter-themed designs featured on the chocolate bars themselves.

    Lucky Easter indeed.
