The Many Faces of Granola

by in Recipes, February 17th, 2016

Granola has come a long way from its humble beginnings as a hippie health food. Today you’ll find it stocked in gourmet markets and coffee shops, on menus at diners and high-end restaurants, and sprinkled on dishes both sweet and savory. Our favorite granolas are of the homemade variety, since it couldn’t be easier to make, and it’s super-crunchy and toasty right out of the oven. At FoodNetwork.com, we’ve expanded our repertoire to include recipes for every granola-seeking appetite. Check out three of our favorite ways to make (and eat) it, below. Read more

Wish You Were Spring Breaking?

by in Recipes, April 9th, 2015

ellie-mango-salsa It’s that time of a year again. While the majority of us are home waiting not-so-patiently for summer’s return, our social media feeds are blowing up with F.O.M.O.-inducing pictures of a lucky few spring breakers sipping pina coladas and sampling tropical fare against an ocean backdrop. The good news is that you can cook your way to the tropics, so take a break from perusing Instagram and enjoy these warm-weather-inspired dishes to make you feel like you’re on an island getaway.

Is Alton’s Mango-Cutting Technique Better Than Yours?

by in Food Network Chef, Recipes, June 19th, 2014

In a YouTube video this week, Alton takes on the fruit that is seemingly impossible to cut — the mango. In a comedic parody (including a massive amount of faux blood), Alton walks food fans through two bad ways to cut this fruit, then he describes the best tactic: Remove all the peel from the mango except for two circles in the center of each cheek. Holding this skin for support, you can then slice the mango easily on each side of the seed. The skin will provide a tough grip so you don’t drop the mango and cut yourself.

Alton is of course no stranger to unique mango recipes. He gives mangoes an Indian twist in this Mango Chutney recipe, and he puts them in a tangy Fruit Salad with Vanilla Dressing. He stuffs a curried mango filling into his Pocket Pies, and he dries mangoes in this Dried Fruit recipe for a sweet and healthy snack. Below are five more ways you can incorporate this delectable fruit in your favorite recipes.

5 Pantry-Raid Recipes

by in Recipes, March 6th, 2014

5 Pantry-Raid RecipesWe all have those nights where we come home from vacation to a barren refrigerator — or even long days when there’s simply no time to hit the store and the fridge is in the same empty state. With this challenge in mind, our experts in Food Network Kitchen came up with five recipes made exclusively with nonperishable pantry ingredients. That means no dairy, no fresh herbs, not even a squeeze of lemon. We’ll admit it: At first we were a little bit skeptical of cooking solely with cans and packaged ingredients, but these fresh-tasting, flavorful dishes won us over at first bite.

1. Quick and Easy Minestrone
Flavorful ingredients are secret weapons in pantry cooking. In this pantry-based minestrone soup, soy sauce adds instant depth and savory umami flavor. This dish proves that your bottle of soy sauce is great for more than just Asian-inspired cooking.

How to Make a Perfect Chocolate Souffle

by in Holidays, Recipes, February 13th, 2014

A perfect rich-yet-airy chocolate souffle is the ultimate wow-factor Valentine’s Day dessert. But souffles can be intimidating, both for expert bakers and novice cooks. So we asked Pastry Chef Robert Parks, lead instructor of the Oregon Culinary Institute in Portland, for his no-fail, no-fall recipe, plus five top tips for souffle success.

1. Make a “cream-based” souffle: This is the key to Chef Parks’ no-fail recipe. Cream-based souffles include starch, which makes the souffle more stable and less sensitive to movement.

2. Use the right type of ramekin: deep and straight-sided.

3. Don’t overwhip or underwhip the meringue: It should be stiff but not crumbly or dry.
