Celebrate the return of our favorite dysfunctional television family with bananas, ice cream sandwiches, and Cornballers
Frozen Chocolate Bananas
One hardworking single father and his awkward teenage son; a lazy shopaholic sister, her never-nude psychiatrist-turned-actor husband, and their movie-executive teenage daughter; a Segway-riding failed-magician older brother; a one-handed younger brother and his vertigo-prone older girlfriend; an alcoholic family matriarch, her fugitive husband, and his identical twin brother
Take your stair car (avoid hop-ons) to pick up blue body paint, a fur coat, an orange jumpsuit, and a case of bag-and-boil frozen dinners; pop a Teamocil for camaraderie (ignore the numbness and memory loss); write your cousin a love letter; and put on your dress eyebrows-whatever you do, avoid swimming in the ocean.
A meal that's as dysfunctional as the Bluth family

That morning sweat on your brow can only mean one thing -- it's time for summer! Break out the white pants and sunscreen before kicking back by the beach (or by your fire escape if you're like us here in NYC). While you're at it, why not mix up a batch (or two) of this Gin Lemonade Punch. It's incredibly refreshing and not a tad too sweet. Cheers!
In a medium saucepan bring 2 cups sugar and 2 cups water to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar is melted. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Add to a large ice-filled pitcher along with the juice of 12 lemons and 16 limes (about 4 cups juice). Stir in 2 cups gin, and thinly sliced lemon and limes. Makes 8 cups.

Once a month seems too infrequent to answer questions, so starting with this post, I'm going to reply twice a month to cut down on the wait time for a response. That said, don't hesitate to pepper me with more questions!
Thin Crust Pizza
@MeeganLora and I have been tweeting back and forth since her initial question about pizza.
Q: How long to let pizza dough rise?
Kemp: I asked how long she'd been letting it rise ("...covered in the oven, off, for 1 hour. Sometimes it rises, sometimes, not") and what kind of yeast she used ("active dry").
So I asked @MeeganLora for a photocopy...Read More »

The start of warmer weather inspires us to cook on the grill. Grilling adds a unique, smoky flavor to foods, and it's a super-quick cooking method.

A great combination of sweet and salty, these tasty banana bites will be a hit with Arrested Development fans.
2 cups chocolate chips (semi sweet)
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
2 large pinches of sea salt + extra for sprinkling
4 bananas that aren't over-ripe
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1 pinch granulated sugar for sprinkling
Before you start line 2 large plates with aluminum foil and clear some room in your freezer. It's always good to do these things before your hands are covered in chocolate.
Place the 2 cups of chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate for 30 seconds. Then add the coconut oil and the peanut butter and microwave for 30 more seconds. Stir with a spoon and make sure that everything is melted and creamy. If you have a few stubborn chips, wait a few seconds and see if the residual heat melts them. If not, give the mixture another 5-10 seconds in the microwave. Once creamy and well combined, a...Read More »
SUPPER CLUB PICK
My after-school snack was a sacred ritual. I sat on the carpet in my parents' bedroom at a low table, the television turned to "I Dream of Jeannie," and ate a peanut butter and honey sandwich cut into neat squares. 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
