What's Cooking This Weekend?

Faith Durand

What's happening in your kitchen this weekend? Want to give us a peek? We're making fresh pasta tonight, and maybe one other special treat, too. We're cooking for family and friends, and looking back over some of the good eating and drinking this past week at The Kitchn.

March is Meat/Un-Meat Month! We'll be looking at all the basics: how to cook a steak, how to cook a chicken... but we'll also be talking about the choice to eat meat, or not. We'll look at vegetarianism too, and hopefully have an interesting and productive discussion of some of all the issues involved in meat-eating (or not).

• Our February Small Projects event was so fun! Here's the big winner at The Kitchn, and our Judge's Choice pick. Thank you everyone who entered and voted.

• Lots of baking projects this week: a LEGO cake, authentic ciabatta, better banana muffins, a chocolate bar pan, and a stunning apple chestnut tart (pictured above).

• The perfect piece of cookware.

• Lent is underway; is it affecting your food choices right now?

• Good drinking: your picks for inexpensive wine, red gin cocktails, and all about lambic beers.

• Are there any ingredients that you hoard?

Loofahs — not just for the bathroom.

• What's on your to-cook list? What was the last recipe you bookmarked?

Tips for separating an egg.

Have a great weekend!
