Recipes run hunger interference during Super Bowl

posted: 01/28/2015 2:12 a.m. Discuss

Whether you plan to spend this coming Sunday watching Super Bowl XLIX (5:30 p.m., NBC), Puppy Bowl XI (3 p.m., Animal Planet), Kitten Bowl II (11 a.m., Hallmark Channel) or commercials, you'll need some snacks to fuel all that time in front of the television or computer.

FRONT BURNER: Chocolate fiends, this one's for you

posted: 01/28/2015 2:11 a.m. Discuss

Serious chocolate cravings call for intensely chocolatey treats. These double chocolate brownies definitely fit that bill. The dark, almost black brownies are rich without being too sweet. Espresso sugar gives them a depth of flavor that accentuates the deep, toasty chocolate flavor without making the brownies taste like coffee.

The ease of cleanup from a one-pan supper is hard to beat. Especially if the cook has an arrangement with the diners that she who cooks doesn't clean.

Full disclosure: Kristie Jones is one of my oldest and dearest friends. We were housemates in college. She is one of the brightest, most creative people I know. And there's no way I can write about her without bias.

Front Burner: Cozy navy bean soup melds ham, vegetables

Last week when it was bitterly cold out, my friend and co-worker Joe Riddle shared a bowl of this soup with me -- saving me a trip out into the weather for lunch.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Scoop Colander

posted: 01/14/2015 2:09 a.m. Discuss

When we first saw the Scoop Colander from Joseph Joseph we were a little skeptical. We were sure the perforated scooplike ladle would work great for straining cold foods and even boiling pasta. But deep-frying? Wouldn't the plastic melt or leach into the oil? Turns out the scoop isn't plastic; it's nylon, and it's heat-safe up to 480 degrees.

Cooking for two: Cassoulet uses mostly kitchen staples

One of the most appealing things about this dish -- aside from its heartiness and flavor profile -- is that some of its main ingredients are items I tend to keep stocked in the pantry or freezer.
