Classic Steak Tartare

personally I won't eat raw eggs, but cooked and chopped is a fine accompaniment to tartare...also, a sure-fire method to protecting against e-coli: bring a large pot of water to a full boil; drop the steak in for 30 seconds, rinse under cold water; dry, and then chop...the bacteria can only exist on the surface of the they're dead (if there were any)

The pefect fried egg (why did it take me 30 years to figure this out?)

Wouldn't it work to use a bit of butter and/or oil and cover the pan so that the top cooks without a flip being needed?

Shaved Ice Treats

Love granita (or granité). Here's an excellent (and nostalgic) topping for ice cream: melt 4 fudgesicles; put the liquid into the food processor; add 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (available at Whole Foods); it will thicken immediately; chill it and serve; takes me way back.
