Q: I have a recipe for cheesy zucchini pancakes made with one cup regular white flour. I want to use an alternate flour, but not wheat flour. In my pantry I have coconut flour, oat flour and almond meal/flour. Which would one of these would be the best substitute for the white flour and at what ratio?

I suspect that a great many of us regard the gingerbread contingent of the holiday cookie tray with a healthy amount of suspicion. Will it taste like cardboard? Will that icing crack my teeth? Will the spices make me sneeze? Can I trust this cookie?
I’m here today to share a recipe for gingerbread cut-out cookies that you can trust. These cookies are crisp enough to snap in half, but tender and ever so slightly chewy when you take a bite. The spice level is moderate — there’s enough cinnamon and ginger to make you pay attention, but this is still a cookie you’ll be happy to have for dessert. In short, I believe this is the gingerbread we’re all hoping we get when we reach toward the cookie tray. This is the one that will make you smile.
How about a little small space kitchen inspiration on this fine Thursday? There's much to love in this bright, white kitchen: the knife rack on the wall, the floating shelf above the sink with the paper towel holder suspended underneath it, the crock pot utensil holder, the black and white striped rug, and of course, all that lovely light!
Want to eat something fresher and lighter than prime rib and holiday cookies this week? Here's a menu for you — a fast yet deliciously fresh assembly of Mexican sprout slaw, the perfect guacamole, and colorful shrimp tacos.
Just listen to the word. Chimichurri. It dances right out of your mouth. I bet you've already paused and said it in your head more times than I've written it. If the word alone feels this good in the mouth, wait until you taste it.
Chimichurri is an Argentine sauce that is traditionally used on meats, although I can think of about fifty other ways to eat it. It’s used in Argentina the way we use ketchup in the U.S., except that it’s often made fresh and is far more delicious.
One of my favorite moments from my Holiday Potluck Party was getting to share a taste of Utopias from Sam Adams. I am the resident beer geek among my friends, and after I first tasted this beer over the summer, they cheerfully tolerated my effusive gibbering. Here, finally, was my chance to show them what all the fuss was about. I can really think of no better context for this beer: a midwinter night, good friends, a cozy moment by the fire.
If you'd told me ten years ago that sticky toffee pudding was made with dates of all things, I would have told you I didn't like sticky toffee pudding, take it away. It took a few more years to figure out that toffee pudding doesn't actually taste like dates and even if it did, that dates are, in fact, quite amazing. Thank goodness my eyes (and stomach) saw the light: now the over-the-top English dessert remains at the top of my hedonistic hall of fame.
It's not uncommon for brands to turn to games for marketing, but Pop Secret's app "Poptopia" might be the best one yet. In the game, users feed a giant mouth by popping flying popcorn. If you don't pop the popcorn at the right time, however, the popcorn burns and you lose points. If that isn't weird enough, the app now has an attachment that lets users smell the popcorn they are popping.
It's the season for cookbook roundups and best-of lists, and since we mentioned or reviewed over 250 cookbooks this year, it was tough to pick out our favorites.
In the end, we came up with a list of books that may be a little off the beaten path — no Ottolenghi, no The Art of Simple Food II, as these and other big hitters are books we imagine you already have on your radar. Instead, our list includes ten books that we loved and took into our kitchens this year, books that gave us something new to chew on, or taught us new things. When we thought back over the year, these are the ones we really remembered.
