Tired of spending time in the kitchen working on a meal only to have it taste ho-hum? Maybe the problem isn't what you're cooking, but how you're cooking it. This week on In the Pantry, Aida Mollenkamp takes a look at eight of the most common cooking mistakes made in the kitchen and how they impact the food you're dishing up. Mollenkamp also offers easy solutions to these problems....Read More »
Mistake: Under heating pans before cooking. "A pan is a metallic surface so you need the metal to expand in order for you to have even heat, and a good non-stick surface," Mollenkamp explained. "You really want to make sure that you're heating the pan adequately before you even begin cooking."
Try this: Let the pan heat up for two to three minutes before you begin cooking.
Mistake: Overcrowding food in pans. If you are cooking something where you're looking for a good brown--like sautéing mushrooms, or browning chicken before you braise it--then you're going to make sure you don't over crowd the pan.

I'm one of those people who likes her chocolate with stuff in it. Roasted almonds in dark chocolate? Yes. Theo's chocolate bar with toasted buttery breadcrumbs? Double yes. The purists will groan, but I appreciate the richness of chocolate tempered with something nutty or crispy. This no-bake take on brownies hits that craving straight-on, with a firm, fudgy texture and the toasted taste of graham crumbs, not to mention hazelnuts.
The best part is that you can put them together in just a few minutes. Simply mix together graham cracker crumbs, hazelnuts, and cocoa, add melted chocolate, and refrigerate your brownies for at least an hour. Waiting for the brownies to chill is by far the hardest part of this recipe, but the fudgy treats flecked with cookie crumbs and r...Read More »
- Source: The Art of Perfect Toast
Before we proceed, the instructions I'm about to expound upon are not for the most convenient way to make toast. Rather, this is how to make the platonic ideal of toast. While that is not to say that other methods are bad, unsatisfying, or wrong, you should follow these steps when nothing but the best will suffice.
Here's what you'll need:
- A toaster oven
- Your favorite bread
- The best unsalted butter you can get your hands on, at room temperature
- Flaky sea salt, such as Maldon or fleur de sel
- Jam, marmalade, or preserves (optional) if you're jonesing for a sweet and salty breakfast treat
- Black pepper (optional), for savory toast
The six steps to perfect toast:
- Turn your toaster oven to the toast setting, place the slice of bread on the rack in the toaster oven, and toast until the bread has just begun to hint at browning.
- Spread a generous pat of butter over every square inch of one side of the bread, nestling it in every nook and cranny.
- Sprinkle with
