A Bitten Word Recipe We know, we know. Kale Salad. It's ubiquitous. It's overdone. And we've already hit "peak kale." But at our house, kale salad remains a staple. Sure, we're ardent kale fans, but really it's just the accessory... Continue reading

That's a great tip! We should have soaked ours longer. Thanks Karen!
You should be totally fine! (We really think ours may have been closer to 5 years old...)
Yes, definitely a shame! We've had such good stuff from Rancho Gordo in the past. They're the best.

Well said, Ann! And yes to the unseasoned rice vinegar -- so many of the flavored rice vinegars we've seen are heavily sweetened with high fructose corn syrup. It's worth scouting out (or ordering) the plain unseasoned variety.
Yes, that's right. Cooking them (and then the peanuts) in a dry skillet gives them more of a char.
Roasted and Charred Broccoli with Peanuts. Yep, that's right, broccoli and peanuts. Continue reading

That's a good thing to flag -- we also used larger chicken pieces and just extended the cook time. The recipe isn't calling for 5 pound bird, but 8 pieces of chicken that total 5 pounds. Which would wager those are much smaller chicken pieces than most folks are accustomed to purchasing at the supermarket (we sometimes purchase breasts than are over 1 pound each). Thanks for sharing, Dale! ~ Zach & Clay
Very funny -- thanks for sharing Jess! ~Zach & Clay
Thanks Carrie! The two side dishes here are a variation on a Wild Rice Pilaf ( and a very simple sauteed kale (just onions and a bit of coconut oil). Enjoy!

Callie, you're right! We goofed. When we were pulling the different cookie recipes together for this project, we got confused about which cookie was in the November Saveur, and which was in the December issue. The Icelandic chocolate-cornflake cookie is indeed the one from December. Oh well! At least the Sarah Bernhardt cookies were a fun challenge -- and delicious for some of the bakers. Here's the recipe for those:
