by in Recipes, February 17th, 2015

You know the classics: chicken pot pie, chicken Parmesan … and the meaty list of comfort food favorites goes on. So what’s a vegetarian to do in the depths of winter when there’s no end of snowstorms in sight? These recipes are hearty enough to satisfy meat eaters and vegetarians alike.

Where to Get Great Doughnuts, from Coast to Coast

by in Restaurants, February 10th, 2015

The correct, dictionary-approved spelling for these treats is “doughnut,” though the shorter “donut” has been around since the late 1800s. No matter how you spell it or which variety you favor (cake, yeast or old fashioned), one thing is certain: Doughnuts have broken out of breakfast and become more than just a pair-with-coffee staple.  The lines often stretch around the block for these popular doughnut shops, and once you’re biting into a decadent, deep-fried ring of dough, you’ll understand the reason why.

Washington, D.C.: Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken (pictured above)
You may recognize co-founder Jeff Halpern’s name: He’s a professional hockey player who played for the Washington Capitals, among other NHL teams. He and co-founder Elliot Spaisman grew up playing hockey together and doughnuts were their reward of choice after games. Grab fried chicken or Sriracha wings before choosing your dessert. You might find a new favorite day of the week based on Astro’s rotating doughnut calendar. Beat a case of the Mondays with Coconut Cake or enjoy the weekend with Elvis (think peanut butter-banana filling). No matter what day of the week you stop by, though, there are some pretty awesome daily flavors that include Vanilla Glazed, Creme Brulee and even Maple Bacon.

by in Recipes, January 17th, 2015

With a heartiness that’ll keep you going long past breakfast and a warmth that’ll keep you cozy on the coldest of winter mornings, oatmeal is perfect for your first meal of the day.

Alton sautes steel-cut oats (or pinhead oats, as they’re referred to in England) in butter so the natural sugar in the oats will caramelize and develop a toasty taste. Keep an eye on the pan, though, so it doesn’t burn.
