“Dreams Are Coming True on Cutthroat Kitchen” — Alton’s After-Show

by in Shows, May 1st, 2016

It was only a few weeks ago that guest judge Richard Blais proclaimed himself “the best that ever played this game.” And though Cutthroat Kitchen has indeed seen its share of impressive winners (and losers), we’re inclined to agree that Richard’s enthusiasm for eviliciousness knows no bounds — literally. In honor of the day’s pesto test, he was challenged to swing hits over a makeshift “Green Monster” in order to earn the required ingredients for pesto on the After-Show. He managed to score not one but multiple up-and-over home runs to collect everything he’d need to make the dish, like fresh herbs, fruity olive oil and plenty of Parmesan cheese. “This is so much fun.

by in Community, May 1st, 2016

Her secret? A classic combination of nutty Parmesan and bright, fresh lemon juice, which add bold taste to her oil-based dressing. If you’re planning to serve this at a party, keep in mind that Ree Drummond recommends letting the dressing chill for a day before serving it; this will give the flavors of the ingredients a chance to marry.

by in Holidays, Recipes, May 1st, 2016

Grilled Breakfast TacosEggs and toast aren’t going anywhere, but we’re digging a spicier, zestier breakfast vibe this first week of May. Though Cinco de Mayo falls on a Thursday this year, the mention of Mexican fare brings one thing to our minds: brunch.
