Every. Thing.

Books and podcasts that focus on one thing are so early-21st-century. In 2020 the way to grab eyes and ears is by promising every. damn. thing. Here’s a long list that undoubtedly doesn’t include everything. * You can read everything. The Problem with Everything: A Journey Through the New Culture Wars, by Meghan Daum (2019). I’ve been a Meghan Daum fan since she wrote for the L.A. Times; this essay collection is provocative and timely.   The Antidote for Everything, by Kimmery...

Comment on my favorite brownies by Justina

Dear Deb, 2 years ago I asked my FB friends to tell me the perfect brownie recipe. I was in search for a brownie as good as the boxed version, but not from the box. For the past couple years I have tried over 15 recipes from people.’s family recipes to Mark Bittman and epicurious’ recommendations. One of my friends had sent me your “favorite” brownie recipe at this time. But it took me this long to get to it (I have three kids, so though I cook their meals everyday, baking is a luxury I greatly ...

Comment on roasted squash and tofu with ginger by bjs

Re: frozen tofu. Not to complicate matters, but I find frozen-then-thawed tofu to be crumbly and chewy in an odd way. However, I think frozen-then-boiled tofu is excellent – see Mark Bittman on this topic. It absorbs flavors much better than fresh tofu and has a great firm texture. I bring water to a boil, plunk the frozen tofu in, then simmer for 15 minutes. Bonus: no pressing required.

Holiday Gift Guide 2019: 11 Cookbooks to Wrap and Give

Left to my own devices, I tend to have a cheese plate and wine for dinner. Even so, cookbooks line my bookshelves, and I like to get into bed and page through one at night like I would a novel. This year’s selection of cookery books, culled from the year’s best-of lists and our very own wish lists, are every bit as beautiful as they are filled with excellent recipes. There’s also a thread here we can get behind: sumptuous, good food that’s also simple and stress-free, laid-back enough for weekni...

Comment on raspberry crumble tart bars by Lauren W

Prunes are a terrific accompaniment to beef! Beef stew with prunes is a revelation (Mark Bittman has a classic version; I make one with prunes and beer, usually Guinness for St. Patty’s day). Thanks Deb for sharing the link, I’ve bookmarked several of Reichl’s favorites! Can’t wait to make these bars, and the meatloaf; I also saved the manicotti, spaghetti and meatballs (with lemon zest? intriguing…) and the bacon cheddar toasts.

Food writer Mark Bittman "has bounced around since leaving The Times."

Comment on whole lemon tart by Mindy

Thank you, Deb! I love that this recipe only used 1 lemon but is still extremely lemony, and I love the ‘dumping everything into a food processor’ method of baking. It’s nowhere near as smooth as lemon curd, but I clearly didn’t want to spend my time making that, now did I? I used an unsweetened tart crust (Mark Bittman’s recipe), which was a good overall amount of sweetness (I generally find recipes overwhelmingly sweet), but it sadly shrank. Do you have an unshrinkable non-sweet tart crust rec...

Comment on flapjacks by jhitchcox

Deb, I think you should add socca to your list of recipes with short ingredient lists. I made the Mark Bittman/NYTimes version this past weekend and it was so much more than the sum of its parts. I’m going to have it on repeat as a savory snack or appetizer for the foreseeable future. Technically it’s 7 ingredients but three of those are salt, pepper and water. Also there’s a version I saw in Bon Appétit that has an egg added to the batter, a kind of socca omelet with sautéed vegetables on top, ...

"If there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that carbs are evil. This is probably the silliest of all the silly, pop-culture propaganda about diet and health."

"All plant foods are carbohydrate sources. Yeah, but: Carbs are evil. Everything from lentils to lollipops, pinto beans to jelly beans, tree nuts to doughnuts, is a carbohydrate source. Most plant foods are mostly carbohydrate. So if 'all carbs' are evil, then so are vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds. Sure, but, I should still avoid carbs, right? Exactly the opposite is true. You cannot have a complete or healthful diet without carbohydrate sources. Why have I be...

Comment on watermelon cucumber salad by Rob Whitman

Hi Deb, About ten years ago (or more?) Mark Bittman did his watermelon and tomato salad. If by some chance you haven’t found and made it please do. I’m sure it’s online at NYT or through the archived minimalist stuff. It is seriously yummy and my kids (10 & 15) can eat it by the bucketful. Watermelon, cherry tomatoes, blue cheese, scallion, olive oil, cherry vinegar, salt. I think that’s it. Thanks for sharing so many great meals to cook and eat!

Why Are We All Drinking Almond Milk Again?

In 1999, Hannah Spinrad was a pre-teen figure skater whose favorite pastime was ripping Got Milk? advertisements from the magazines in her Dad’s doctor’s office. She collected them all, starting with iconic figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi’s before moving on to other celebrities like Britney Spears and Joshua Jackson. “I thought of myself as an athlete, even though I wasn’t a great one,” Spinrad recalls now, with a laugh. To go with her Got Milk? obsession (by the way her Bat Mitzvah was Got Mil...

Vegan meal kit startup Purple Carrot raises $4M from Fresh Del Monte

Purple Carrot announced this morning that it has raised $4 million in strategic funding from Fresh Del Monte Produce. The company, which delivers completely plant-based (vegan) meal kits to subscribers, was founded in 2014. It has, in part, gotten attention through celebrity involvement, first by enlisting food writer Mark Bittman as its chief innovation officer (Bittman departed in 2016), then by partnering with football star and notorious strawberry hater Tom Brady to launch TB12 meal kits.

Comment on melting potatoes by Happy Foodie in Charleston

Hi Deb~ Heartfelt condolences to you and your family. I was planning to make striped bass & tomatoes in foil packets* tonight for dinner. You can imagine how thrilled I was to read the melting potatoes recipe: both need a 500 degree oven. I followed your directions explicitly using russet potatoes. I managed to set off the fire alarm during the first 15 minutes. I put the exhaust fan on “turbo” and continued after I turned the potatoes. It didn’t take long before it went off again. I added the b...
