Selling the Idea of Brownie Indulgence Without the Payoff

Whole Foods brownies are 200+ calories each. Not remotely the same thing.

Going to Chicago (Sorry I Can't Try Ewe)

The one at Lincoln & Wrightwood should be good. Still a ride on the el, but much closer.

Another good restaurant: Tru

Best recipes using green peppercorns?

I've found myself with a ton of green peppercorns (dried, not in brine). Anyone have good recipes for them? Excluding lamb, because yes, I see the thousands of lamb recipes.

Pumpkin seed mole recipe? (not verde)

Does anyone have a recipe for a brown pumpkin seed mole? The recipes I find online are for verde pumpkin seed mole, but I had one at a restaurant that was not green. It was brown, although not as dark as regular moles either, and was served with chicken. Maybe it's a hybrid of the two? I don't know but if anyone with more mole knowledge can post a recipe or direct me to one, I will be grateful.

So good that you make it over and over again (or at least 3 times!)

One is Martha Stewart's mac & cheese. I usually skip making bread crumbs and just use store-bought, which would probably offend Martha but the recipe is still awesome.

But the one I've made a million times is Spanish Rice, a classic from a friend's mom. The recipe starts with boxed spanish rice, which may sound incredibly lame but it turns out great. Ground beef or turkey makes it a full meal in one pan. Guys love it especially.

Favorite frittata?

My fave is the Spanish version (the tortilla) of which the basic is onions and sliced potatoes, browned and then pour in the egg to cook... It's that simple but really good - of course can be changed up, I recommend adding spinach or other greens. I don't recommend adding garlic, I didn't like that at all for some reason.
