What's Cooking This Weekend?

Weekend of August 13-14, 2011

My weekend plans involve tomatoes, a fresh ball of mozzarella, and possibly some bread. But bread is optional, in this scenario. What about you? What are you eating and drinking? Take a peek at few posts from the past week and tell us: What's cooking this weekend in your kitchen?

• How do you run your potlucks? Strict sign-ups? Come with what you can? Our readers pitched themselves a lively discussion!

Bacon, lettuce, tomato. BLT season is here.

Dip fried food in salt instead of sauce — just try it!

A short list of delights and inspirations.

• A birthday cake inspired by Willy Wonka.

Sleek, small, sexy New York City kitchen.

• Take heart. Even famous food bloggers have messy kitchens.

Sippable summer smoothies.

• Is a fruit and vegetable juicer right for you?

Build your own seltzer maker — what a fun project.

Fruits and vegetables not as nutritious as they were 60 years ago.

Chocolate for breakfast — yes or no?

Happy weekend, and happy cooking!
