Whether you like to mess around in the kitchen while you’re blazed—(“I love nothing more than getting ripped and making a homemade pizza with healthy toppings,” my friend Maggie, 27, of Portsmouth, NH, told me. “It’s relaxing, creative, and my taste buds always feel like they’re on steroids.”)—or prefer to make and then bake (probably a better idea), there’s a recipe out there for you. As for what makes an ideal stoner snack? Think fresh flavors, interesting textures, and ingredients that aren’t too heavy because, well, empty calories.

This Decadent Potato Gratin Raclette Recipe Is Too Good to Pass Up

I have a recipe from Tyler Florence that I’ve been using for years (with a few modifications). I will warn you that’s it’s not for the faint of heart. There is a lot of cheese—rich cheese—in this recipe, so you may want to cut back on the amounts you use. For me the more the merrier! This recipe doesn’t disappoint. I love the hint of garlic and thyme blended with the cheese and cream. It’s very, very subtle, but it makes you smile with every bite. I can’t take the credit for the raclette and the Jarlsberg. The original recipe called for cheddar, but I wanted something a little snazzier. When I first made this recipe, I stopped in Whole Foods and...

This Blueberry Pie Recipe Is Unlike Any Other You’ve Tried Before

While I was at Trader Joe’s the other day, buying ingredients for another recipe and a few snacks, I saw a huge beautiful box of blueberries. I decided to make a classic blueberry pie with a double crust. Then my friends’ voice popped in my head. He convinced me a while ago that metal pans were better for pies but I only had glass pans, so I switched to a slab pie. Also, to give this a little twist, I made a cornmeal crust, something I’ve tried before with moderate success. I really liked this recipe. It was the first crust recipe I’ve seen in a long time that used butter and shortening. I must admit that I’ve been a butter...

This Crispy Rice Salad Recipe Will Blow Your Mind

This might not be the best way to cook rice, but it’s the best way to eat it.

In fact, “I want to eat this every day of my life,” is what Amanda Hesser (my boss) said, upon tasting Crispy Brown Rice “Kabbouleh.” Its name was probably irrelevant.

What she was responding to was that same crackly rice that cultures across the world hold on high—the well-toasted bottom layer of rice in a good paella, tahdig, or bibimbap. But this Holy Grail of texture doesn’t have to come only at the end of a perfectly made dish—it can be broken apart and distilled for us to eat whenever we like.

Toast to Spring With These Strawberry Margaritas


When strawberries are in season, you can never have too many strawberry cocktails! Instead of mixing the sweet red berries with vodka or gin, why not combine them with tequila for a vibrant twist on the margarita?


This easy recipe is a potent crowd-pleaser that's sure to get the conversation flowing. It may seem like a lot of work to haul out the blender, but trust me, this drink is worth it. It's refreshing and fruity, but salty and strong at the same time: perfection in a glass! Start your party right with strawberry margaritas.

The Power Lunch

It's no surprise that the country's most metropolitan locales are full of modern spots for cutting deals, shaking hands and perhaps even an afternoon glass of prosecco. To impress your lunch date, seek out menus that offer something for your meat and potatoes type as well as the delicate diner who prefers leafy greens. Let's not pretend one isn't judged for their power-meal restaurant choices. When in doubt, choose uptown over downtown and formality over fast-casual. And, while each city will always have its staples–which each still have a place on our power lunch short-list–a more modern venture requires a slightly more innovative restaurant choice. Whether you choose chicken paillard atop arugula, steak tartare (with a side of frites) or...

You’ll Have This Lemon Chicken Recipe On Repeat

This lemon chicken recipe is, much like our mom, the hands-down best. Why is it among our most-requested recipes? Perhaps it’s because the chicken is marinated in white wine and lemon juice, or that it’s topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar. Or it could be because it’s baked in a citrus broth mixture to juicy perfection. You better stock up on lemons because this Lemon Chicken is going to become a weeknight staple. INGREDIENTS 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves 1/2 cup flour 1 tbsp lemon zest 1 tsp kosher salt 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper 4 tbsp olive oil, divided in half 1/4 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 cup chicken broth 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice 6 lemon slices 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds, for topping Lemon Marinade 3/4 cup fresh...

Korean Fried Chicken Tacos With Sweet Slaw, Crunchy Noodles + Queso Fresco


If there is something you are going to fry, it needs to be this chicken.


And this is coming from someone who does everything she can not to fry. Oddly though, I have now fried three things this week.

Huh, maybe I secretly love it?


Nope, I don’t, but sometimes the mess and grease are worth it. Like for doughnuts, well and really any fried dough. And definitely this chicken. Duh.

Seriously though, this chicken is special. When I saw it over on one of my favorite blogs, The Tart Tart a few weeks ago I knew it was something I really wanted to try. It’s all about two important things. One, it’s double fried,...

Chimaek, Korean Fried Chicken And Beer


CNN has highlighted in its special feature on its website that Chimaek- the term used to describe the fried chicken (chi) and beer (maekju) combo - has been thriving in South Korea for years but the world is only now catching on.

It has also addressed that neither fried chicken nor beer originated in Korea.

But the union of these two overseas imports has become a culturally significant force in South Korean drinking culture.

The country is bursting with places to eat chicken.
As of 2013, South Korea had more than 20,000 fried chicken eateries. The market for fried chicken is worth about 3 trillion KRW (about $3 billion), according to Statistics Korea. There's even a festival devoted to chicken and beer...
