For residents of Buffalo, New York, where I was born, true Buffalo wings come only from Frank and Teressa's Anchor Bar, where owner Teressa Bellissimo invented the dish in 1964. There, wings are fried, then tossed in a combination of melted margarine and hot sauce. Today, the Anchor Bar serves 2,000 pounds of wings each day. -Denise Mickelsen, from "Wings of Desire" (April 2006)

Improving on the original while cutting out the caloriesSure, it's easy enough to walk into a mall and shell out $3 to $4 for a classic cinnamon roll at Cinnabon, but what if you could make a version at home that was better than the original and lower in calories? It sounds too good to be true.Read More »from How to Make a Cinnabon Classic Cinnamon Roll at Home

But Devin Alexander, author of Fast Food Fix and the Biggest Loser series of cookbooks, has done just that. She says:
"My version of the Cinnabon has also become the recipe in the book [Fast Food Fix] that I've used to prove to skeptics that, in fact, these [fast- food] recipes can be duplicated to satisfy cravings with a fraction of the fat and calories of their original counterparts. Though I believe many of the [other] recipes [in the book] truly duel the originals, this one happens to travel much better than many since it doesn't need to be hot. The rolls are just fine if they sit at room temperature for several hours."

Throw out that instant oatmeal, and just about everything you know about cooking hot cereal for breakfast.By Anne Mendelson
One popular parlor-game version of culinary history consists of guffawing over the details of an old recipe - for instance, these directions for oatmeal in the 1880 manual "Miss Parloa's New Cook Book and Marketing Guide" by Maria Parloa:
"Oatmeal, Indian meal [i.e., cornmeal] and hominy all require two things for perfection - plenty of water when put on to boil, and a long time for boiling. Have about two quarts of boiling water in a large stew-pan, and into it stir a cupful of oatmeal, which has been wet with cold water. Boil one hour, stirring often, and then add half a spoonful of salt, and boil an hour longer. If it should get too stiff, add more boiling water; or, if too thin, boil a little longer. You cannot boil too much."
RELATED: Buttermilk makes oatmeal special.
You can just hear the shrieks of "Oh, our funny old ancestors." After all, don't standard rolled oats take about 15 minutes to cook, "quick-cooking" and "instant" kinds much less?Read More »from The Secrets to a Perfect Bowl of Oatmeal

So, I don't cook. Not really. I'm very good at "preparing" things, like salad. I'm also exceptional at cleaning up after a meal, which is why my relationship works so well. My fiance is a great cook, and thankfully, he loves to do it.
Every once in a blue moon, I get the urge to "cook," which for me means following a recipe.
