burger taste like? For Erin Evenson, who took home a giant check as the blue ribbon champ of Sutter Home's 2012 Build a Better Burger contest, it's cooked up from family memories and an ode to New York City's Number 7 train.... What does a $100,000 prize-winning Read More »
"This is my burger of a lifetime," the Brooklyn-based cook told Yahoo! Shine. "It kind of ties together my family [and] my love of New york City. When I finally put it all together I thought, 'that'll work.'"

Erin, who grew up with parents who loved to forage for food, often ate watercress growing up. "I always thought it was the absolute best watercress in the world until I moved to New York about ten years ago. I went to a Thai restaurant in Woodside, Queens, and I had a fried crispy watercress salad there. And that just changed my mind entirely. 'OK, this is watercress.'" Erin now jokingly calls the 7 train that runs to Queens the "The Crispy Watercress Express."

"I love meat loaf, but I hate that it's cooked all the way through," says chef Jamie Bissonnette. For these burgers, he mixes beef with ingredients you might use for meat loaf, like pickles. On top: a ketchup he doctors with hoisin (for sweetness), lime juice (for tang) and soy sauce (for umami).

It happens to everyone: You buy a bunch of herbs for a recipe, then watch the leftovers decompose in your fridge. Carla Hall tells you how to use them up deliciously. REDBOOK.
"When you think of basil, you think of pesto, mozzarella cheese, tomato sauces, and pasta dishes. But basil is also great with corn, zucchini, eggplant, even fresh strawberries."
"Use them in place of scallions. They taste great with eggs. If you can, snip them with kitchen scissors instead of cutting them with a knife; if your knife's dull, you'll bruise them."

"Did you know the stems are flavorful too? Add cilantro to Mexican food: guacamole, tomatoes, rice. I make a tuna salad with cilantro and lime, peanuts, ginger, and chili. If your dish has lime in it, you can usually use cilantro too."

I wasn't fussy about crusts. I just loved the sticky pairing of creamy peanut butter with syrupy golden sweetness drizzled from a honey bear in diagonals across the soft white bread. Nothing else--save for maybe apples and peanut butter in a pinch--could have made for as sweet an
