Intro to Cooking: Cranberry Applesauce

This Week's Ingredient: Cranberries! They're sweet. They're tart. They're harvested from bogs. And they're a deep, beautiful, fire-engine hue.

Intro to Cooking: The Ultimate Nacho Dip!

Remember that episode of Seinfeld where George and Jerry are sitting in the coffee shop talking about salsa, because Jerry thinks its popularity is due to the fact that "people like to say 'salsaaa'"?

Intro to Cooking: Pineapple Chicken

My father is, for better or for worse, your stereotypical Italian-American male when it comes to food.

With the Winter Olympics in full swing, all of the world’s attention is focused on Canada. And in addition to figure skating and snowboarding and skeleton (?!) a new Olympic sport has arisen—one that we plebeians can play from our couches! I like to call it “Canadian CelebSpotting.”
