LA Hound, coming to the Bay Area to go to French Laundry, would like to know if we should go to Chez Panisse or the Cafe. We don't care too much about atmosphere. We want to go where the food is best. Let me know what you think? Thanks!

Chicken Tortilla Soup
Softened vegetables, including onions and bell peppers, amped up with spices like chili powder, cumin, oregano, and cayenne, form the base of this tortilla soup. Chicken broth and tomatoes are added, along with soft corn tortillas that meld into the liquid to make a hearty, thick meal. Finally, shredded chicken is stirred in, and everything is garnished with crunchy tortilla strips, sour cream, shredded cheese, and scallions (avocados, pickled jalapeños, and cilantro would all work too).
For these Rice Krispy Treats, we mixed in kettle-cooked potato chips for added crunch and a salty kick, upped the decadence with chocolate-covered peanuts, and added another level of sweetness with toasty graham crackers.

Easy Roasted Acorn Squash
Roasted acorn squash couldn't be easier, or more delicious. A little butter, salt, freshly ground pepper, and a sprinkle of brown sugar to emphasize the squash's natural sweetness, plus about an hour in the oven, and you have a gorgeously caramelized side (or main dish, if you stuff the squash), with a pool of glaze in the center of each piece.
