My fascination and irritation with #mymancancook posts has taken a turn and is now a full-blow obsession.
Follow my new Tumblr, Your Man Can’t Cook, for breakdowns of my favorite “my man can cook” posts. 

M. and I just spent 10 minutes on this blog (which kills me). He wanted to cut the men (and women) involved some slack; at least they tried blah blah blah. I wouldn’t hear of it. The food is gross; the sexist sentiment behind it even grosser (right up there with ‘aww my husband watched the kids today isn’t he the greatest?’).
"But what do you say about my cooking?" he asked.
"Darling, if you have to say your man can cook, he can’t cook."
Besides, his food speaks for itself.
PS: And oh god that stir-fried rat? Cannot be unseen. A+ work, Georgia.

More summer eating inspiration (because the days will pass, we might as well enjoy them).

gasp-shock:

Summer sides for days! I’ve been slowly working through these caprese alternatives as the produce appears at the farmer’s market or as burrata and peaches are on sale on the SAME DAY at Whole Foods. (Enablers!)

  • Cantaloupe + Scamorza + Mint
  • Grilled Eggplant + Ricotta Salata + Dill
  • Peach + Burrata + Tarragon
  • Roasted Red Pepper + Feta + Chive

tktc:

Green Gazpacho from Bon Appetit is delicious. Omitted the bread and, I reasoned, 2-3 hours of soak time. It’s real good. Great kick from the jalapeños and vinegar but tastes really rich thanks to the yogurt. Plus that’s all it is—vegetables, a couple acids, and Greek yogurt. 

To make before summer is through.
And side note, this is the first summer in my life that I am counting down the days and waiting to pass. November 9th — our due date — feels so far away (though of course I know it isn’t). These 9 and a half months are as long as a school year, and feel just as interminable.

Your summer shot (have one for me)
Last night we met this cool couple — she’s an interior designer who creates large-scale installations, both artistic and commercial, he’s a DJ who’s worked at the French Laundry and Bouley (as you do).
He made all the best dips and condiments at the BBQ (says he was raised white trash, and I guess it shows): killer queso with like 40 ingredients (including beer and pineapple), caramelized Coca-Cola onions for topping hot dogs and bratwurst (omg), and pickled jalapeño pineapples, for munching, eating with chips and queso, topping brats, whatever. But the best use — pineapple pickling liquid + whiskey = piñabacks. You heard it here first.
Make your own pickled jalapeño pineapples by adapting this recipe. I’d probably skip the other spices and just include slices of jalapeño or habanero. 
And I found a couple recipes for Coke onions, if you want to give those a shot. 
Look into my eyes and listen to me closely: you probably do.

One of my favorite moments in one of my favorite childhood movies. Also, I learned to cook by mastering souffles. Probably not a coincidence.

One hundred years in the making, the Russ & Daughters Cafe is finally open! Our tip: weekend brunch is going to be a long, long wait. Stop by for weekday lunch or enjoy the fabulous cocktails, sodas and shrubs, and appetizing platters at the stylish bar.

We stopped by today for lunch — #gamechanger. So excited for the team. They did a kick-ass job, from the drinks to the design (that “take one” ticket wallpaper in the bathroom!).

But yeah, don’t even think about weekend brunch.
