BaconSalt Chocolate

For anybody like me who's wondering what BaconSalt is, see their company website here: http://www.baconsalt.com/

I'd be interested to try this recipe with their peppered version.

Cacio e Pepe Pasta

At the Old Spaghetti Factory in Atlanta they refer to that dish as the "Homer" after the poet's supposed fondness of it., Lovetheson.

Why Do Hard-Boiled Eggs Turn Green?

I generally have better luck gently placing the eggs into already boiling water for 8-10 minutes. Never a hint of green.

Basil and Rye

Agave syrup isn't too difficult to find anymore, at least in the Atlanta area. I wouldn't imagine it's too difficult to spot in any area with Mexican influence at all.

Just check near the other syrups / bitters / mixers in your better quality liquor shops.

One possible solution is the Flatterware collapsible cup, of course:

Mysteries of Tempeh Revealed

I grew up eating my grandmother's freshly made sweet potatoes, and honestly, there's really not that much difference in the flavor of this particular packaged variety. Sure, they don't beat the real thing, but they're a cheap and quick alternative for when you're looking to add a quick side to a last minute family meal.

Kettle and Frank Sitting in a Tree ...

One of my good friends and I used to toss sourdough pretzel nuggets in the Frank's buffalo style sauce and eat them with a spoon.

That being said...I still like Tabasco brand on my salt and vinegar chips.

What's with the Salty Licorice?

As an afterthought, Ikea sells small $3-4 bags of "Swedish Fish" shaped saltad lakrits for those curious.

What's with the Salty Licorice?

Salted licorice was one of my favorite things about my stay in Sweden. The way it makes your mouth water, and the resulting spread of salty goodness is a little overwhelming at first, but when you're walking along a breezy cobblestone street in Gamla Stan ("old town" in Stockholm), it really starts to grow on you.

Atlanta tapas recommendations?

Loca Luna's food is delicious, but the atmosphere is a little on the collegiate drinking and date-impressing side. It still made for a memorable meal entertaining a group of out-of-town professors and exchange students though.

Turnip and Pear Purée

I would be tempted to add a small amount of ginger, sweet cinnamon, or galangal to this dish for a little extra something, but as soon as the market has some decent turnips in, I'll be trying this out as is.
