Apple TartSnow White would surely be tempted by this mouthwatering apple treat! She can thank my daughter, Sylvie, for the recipe. The other day I was cooking dinner and Sylvie was watching the cooking channel (she wants her own cooking show!) when she ran in and insisted we make an apple tart for dessert. I let her know that I've never made an apple tart, only apple pie and that I wasn't sure we had the ingredients. That wasn't stopping her. She rattled off how to make a tart and I was shocked at the simplicity of such a fancy sounding dessert.
Pie crust - store bought or homemade
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup apricot jam
1 tablespoon apple juice

Preheat oven to 400. Roll pie crust out to a rectangle or if you have store-bought, just keep it round and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Peel, core and slice apples and squeeze juice from half a lemon over apples.

In the event that you need to build a replica of Lady Gaga out of sugar, you should probably consult with someone who's done it before. That would be Jay Murphy, the owner of Arizona's Kick Ass Kakes bakery and the mad genius who constructed an 180-pound human-shaped confection to herald the pop star's arrival in Phoenix for a series of concert dates. If this doesn't get him a backstage pass, there is no justice.

Gourmet/Yanes,Romulo A Clementine season will draw to a close in the next month or so, but I'm holding on for dear life. From Thanksgiving through February, we probably munch and slurp our way through a crate of clementines each week in my house. Since introducing my toddler to this easy-peel, seedless, perfectly child-sized fruit, I've found that she alone will mow down up to three clementines a day.
In fact, clementines are so embarrassingly easy to eat that I admit I was surprised to discover so many clementine recipes in the Epicurious database. But there is compelling evidence that someone out there (not me) apparently possesses the self-restraint to do something other than just start gobbling up juicy segments the second the peel is off. And if you, too, are capable of great feats of self-control, you might be interested to try a few.

Clementine Sauce is a flavorful accompaniment to ice cream, fruit, or our favorite Bomboloni.

We're three weeks into our first monthly Epicurious Doable Challege: Get a Healthy Breakfast Boost, and hopefully you've tried eating a bigger morning meal, adding protein to breakfast, and enjoying a serving of fruits and vegetables at the start of your day (it's not too late to jump on those now, by the way). This week, I'd like to suggest some small tweaks to make at the grocery store--these little buying changes can make a difference over the long run for overall health and weight control and they're all really easy:
Choose fat-free milk rather than whole: In one cup of milk, you'll save 63 calories and take saturated fat from 5 grams to zero.

As more and more people get into cooking--whether inspired by hipster TV chefs, luscious food photos in magazines and blogs, or the need to save money by cutting out restaurant meals--recipes have become more important than ever. Although there are plenty of flawed recipes out there in cyberspace, the good, well-tested ones can be ruined by users' flawed assumptions. Here are the five most common mistakes I encountered during many years as a magazine food editor talking to countless readers.
Failure to Read the Recipe:
How many times has the following scenario happened to you? You're in a big hurry. You find a recipe that uses what's in your fridge and you're halfway into the prep, when you discover to your chagrin that the recipe requires hours of marinating, or some labor-intensive step. If only you'd stopped long enough to calmly read the instructions all the way through, you would have seen the booby trap! Even I'm guilty of this one sometimes.

From left: Michael Chernow and Daniel Holzman at their restaurant, The Meatball Shop. It's that time of year again, when you start thinking about what to make for your Super Bowl party. Last year you probably made wings. The year before that you probably made…wings. Those tasty nuggets have been a go-to for football parties since the early 1960s, when a Buffalo bar purportedly invented the Buffalo chicken wing. Well, it's 2012, for goodness' sake, time for a change!
What to make instead? Meatballs are riding a popularity wave again, so we turned to the Meatball Shop's chefs, Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow, for advice. After successfully opening three restaurants in the New York area, the duo published The Meatball Shop Cookbook, and they have a thing or a hundred to say about how best to feed feisty football fans.
So this year, go about game-day business as usual. Chill some beers, put out bowls of chips and guac, and follow these meatball

Dreams of summer. They're inevitable this time of year, when memories of sun and warmth are fuzzy at best, and it's hard to believe that you'll ever be able to step outside without a coat again. Moorish Paella, warm with spice and color, is a ticket out of this greyness. It tastes of warm nights in faraway places. Tartine's genius lemon cream is equally transporting: soft, breezy and positively luscious. Dinner is indeed a good time to escape.
