by in Events, September 29th, 2014

What's Your Coffee IQ? If coffee a morning must for you, it’s time to shake up your everyday routine. Indulge in a fancy coffee drink — homemade pumpkin spice latte, anyone?  Or perhaps your coffeemaker has seen better days. Find out which machines Food Network stars love and cross one off your wish list. If you’re only into the java flavor, not the beverage, bake something delicious that features coffee as an ingredient. This mocha quick bread calls for instant espresso powder in both the batter and the glaze. Finally, take the coffee quiz from the most recent issue of Food Network Magazine. It’s a fun way to start the day while sipping your morning joe. Plus, you just might learn a thing or two about how to make better coffee.

Which Is Better: Chocolate Fondue or Cheese Fondue?It’s impossible to go wrong with fondue.

Both options are deliciously decadent, but which is better?

Food Network Magazine wants to know which side you’re on: chocolate or cheese. Vote in the poll below and tell FN Dish what type of fondue you prefer.

How to Fake a Pizza

by in Food Network Magazine, July 22nd, 2014

Turn basic flatbread into a quick dinner on the grill: Brush lavash, pocketless pita, naan or other flatbread with oil and grill until marked. Flip, top with cheese and let melt, then remove from the grill and top with arugula, tomatoes, corn or other fresh vegetables, or add some prosciutto or ham. Avoid traditional tomato sauce though — it can make the bread soggy.
