Recently, Alton’s been taking to his Twitter account to answer fan questions via yellow sticky notes. His answers are full of wit, humor and culinary lessons and sometimes include drawings. But it was an answer to a question last Friday that caught our eyes.

@CraftingGeek asked: “What would be your dream secret ingredient on Iron Chef?” The answer was in pure Alton fashion, unique and typically captivating: “Frozen broccoli with the judges being kids.” I bet fans of the show wouldn’t mind seeing that, as well.

What would your dream challenge be? Tell us in the comments below.

What Are You Cooking This Weekend?

Twitter Talk: Thursday was all about lemons and you love these bars as much as we do.

We love asking you what you’re cooking and we never tire of reading your responses. Many of you are grilling for Memorial Day weekend, and not just burgers and ‘dogs — over on Facebook you’re talking about hickory grilled spareribs, whole butterflied chicken injected with jalapeno butter, bacon-wrapped shrimp, sweet potatoes, grilled pizza, Coca-Cola baby back ribs, corn on the cob, peaches and pineapple (served with ice cream, we presume).

And to our fans who report broken grills or thunderstorms in the forecast, we’re truly sorry! The weekend’s not lost though, you can still grill inside like Bobby.

We also shared Food Network Mag’s 50 bonus burger recipes on Facebook and you topped our ideas with dozens of your own — feta-stuffed burgers, seafood burgers, burgers topped with mango and jack cheese and turkey burgers with pesto. But major props go to Missi H. who made 5 of the 50 burgers so far. Let us know when you get to 50!

Twitter talk on Thursday was all about lemons, and it turns out you love lemon bars as much as we do. We shared our favorite tips, like rolling lemons on the counter before squeezing for more juice, and you offered a suggestion back: microwaving them for 5 seconds to soften them for even more juice.
