Bittman's Pantry, a LEGO Cake, and 10 Ways to Eat an Egg

This Time Last Year

This week a year ago we were discussing Marmite and marmitouts, peeking inside Mark Bittman, Julia Child, and Uncle Thorvald's kitchens, attempting to create an anatomically correct LEGO cake, and showing you how pressure cookers work. Read on for these posts and more from a year ago this week.

Here are a few posts that we especially liked from this week a year ago. Posts pictured above are in bold below.
