I am looking for a place for dinner tonight (2 people) near 11th and 3rd ... or near Sullivan Street (which is where we are heading after). We will only have approx 1 1/2 hours or so ... so nothing that will take too long. Any thoughts?
Iced coffee is a great way to get your morning boost on a hot summer day. But unless you remember to cold-brew it the night before, you usually end up with a cup of coffee that's been watered down by melting ice cubes. In this tip John Birdsall of CHOW.com shares three simple tricks to get quick iced coffee any time you want.
Smoky-Sweet BBQ Beef Short Ribs
Beef ribs can stand up to strong flavors. Here, a spicy-sweet rub with chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic, and brown sugar coats the meat, which is roasted to tenderness. Finishing on the grill with a smoky chipotle barbecue sauce ensures the meat gets a nice char and the sauce lacquers.
Here's the ultimate, savory weeknight meal for your family. Extra-lean ground beef (which sometimes cooks up dry) works well here because it's combined with marinara to keep it moist.
Easy Crab Cakes
Crab cakes are so often disappointing -- mushy or gummy, full of starchy filler. But these easy cakes are full of beautiful lump crabmeat, and a light panko coating ensures they fry up crispy and golden brown. Bright, lemony aioli makes a piquant counterpart to the sweet, sweet crab.
Basic Boneless Roasted Leg of Lamb
A roasted boneless leg of lamb makes an impressive centerpiece for your table, but this recipe is easy enough to pull off any time. A classic gremolata perfumes the lamb; the mixture of garlic, lemon, and parsley holds its own against the strong flavor of the meat.
