Recipe News: Ignore lure of quick-fix recipes for best eggplant Parmesan dish

In a category that pits pizza against the illustrious spaghetti and meatballs, and fettuccine Alfredo against pasta e fagioli, eggplant Parmesan comes out a decisive victor in the cutthroat competition of Italian comfort food. It is one dish that boasts traces of rustic "old country" roots, bringing its most primitive, original form to the new world; it is a recipe that seems to have been created in everyone's Italian grandmother's kitchen in prewar Palermo; and most importantly, it is perhaps the favorite dish of any Italian restaurant right here in the United States. Is this not Italian comfort food at its finest? The eminence of eggplant Parmesan is unrivaled. Despite its aged reputation, it is continuously found in the fanciest of Italian restaurants, quaint "fast-food" Italian cafes, and even local pizzerias. It has a flavor that never grows old, and its ubiquity as a dish leaves it floating somewhere between gourmet food and an easy-to-make back

  • Eggplant Parmesan

Recipe News: Can-Do Recipe Makes Absolutely Fantastic Chicken

Whether it's called Beer Can Chicken, or Chicken on a Can or Drunken Chicken, it all equals the same thing: an absolutely fantastic chicken! Every stooge who writes a barbecue book and every blabbermouth with pretty hair who has a cooking show on television have their own version of this recipe. Well, here's a little secret: Whatever they call the recipe, it is all just about the same. I don't know who invented it (although I am sure several people will try to claim it); I just know I didn't. All I have is my own twist on it. I also know that it is as close to a perfect recipe for the backyard barbecuer as there can be. Whether you have been grilling every weekend for the past 50 years or if you bought your grill last week, this recipe will deliver for you. The genius behind Beer Can Chicken is in the way it's cooked. The heat from the coals and the smoke from the wood will cook the chicken from the outside in. The can of liquid on which you prop the bird heats up, steams and cooks the bird from the inside out. The end result is some of the best chicken you've ever had off of a grill.

Recipe News: Party mix recipes for game night

Whether it's a group of gals who meet monthly to roll the dice in a game of Bunco, a lively gathering of wordsmiths playing Scrabble, or Monopoly among family, game night is an idea that doesn't go out of style.

And where people assemble there's usually food. Legend has it that the sandwich was invented when John Montagu, the fourth earl of Sandwich, requested a repast that wouldn't soil his fingers while he played cards.

If dinner is to be served after a round of games, simple appetizers might be set out at the table. These can include grapes, vegetables or hummus and pita chips, tortilla chips and salsa, or anything one can easily nibble while playing cards and visiting.

Recipe News: Recipe finder: Cinnamon Streusel Cake

Marcy Busse of McHenry, Ill., was looking for a recipe for a cinnamon bundt cake. Dukey Marr of Phoenix, Md., sent in her "decades old" recipe for Cinnamon Streusel Cake, which can be made as a bundt cake. She says her husband, children and grandchildren all love this cake and it always disappears quickly at her house. She most often makes it using a lemon-cake mix for the base, although any of the others are good, too.

Marr suggests that if you intend to serve this as a coffeecake, omit the glaze -- it makes it too sweet. I tested her recipe with a lemon-cake mix I happened to have in the house and the glaze. We did not find it to be overly sweet. The preparation is simple and fast and the result was a beautiful, moist and tasty cake.

That Microwave Oven May Be Able to Do More Than You Think

The always informative Mark Bittman has written about new and interesting ways that you can put that microwave oven of yours to good use:
FOR years, I hadn’t used my microwave for much besides reheating leftovers and softening ice cream. I make popcorn the real way, I steam my vegetables on the stovetop, and everyone knows a potato doesn’t really bake in a microwave. But after all, the thing is sitting there, built into my wall. You have one, too, unless it broke and you haven’t replaced it (understandable but unusual). Shouldn’t you be using it for more than reheating coffee?
How about eggplant, steamed pudding, and steamed veggies? You'll find recipes and more: You Use It Every Day. But Can You Make It Cook?

Everyone enjoyed this cake. Gene got the recipe for me to try. (Men, you can get recipes to try.)

Anyway, it has been one of my favorites.

Everyone sure enjoys this recipe, and we don’t have to bake the cake. This is made in layers.
