We're lucky, really, to be living in such an age of drink super-geekdom that has given rise to a wealth of unique venues, companies, and brands. These are genuine passion projects run by folks more than eager to share their enthusiasm and knowledge, lively wine tastings where people won't give you a glaring side-eye if you don't spit after every taste, and wine bars that feel as relaxed and casual as your favorite local dive. Take Corkbar in Los Angeles, for instance, whose owner, the appropriately named Caleb Wines, notes "It seemed like most of the 'wine bars' here were just glorified restaurants or really esoteric and intimidating, where if you didn't know the latest Eastern European varietal you were made to feel like an idiot."

MuffinsBeing a serious home baker for over 25 years, I've picked up my fair share of handy tips, and some of my favorites center around muffins. Specifically, berry muffins.

There is this amazing scene in Crazy, Stupid, Love where Ryan Gosling makes an Old Fashioned before seducing Emma Stone. It's at the moment when the sugar cube begins to dissolve that it stops being about the drink and starts being about, well, romance. Movie mixology, aka cocktails from the movies, add another dimension to the story. We all know how James Bond likes his martini. We all know the color of Carrie's signature drink in Sex in the City. We all know what keeps the Dude going in The Big Lebowski. I've gathered the recipes for 7 cocktails from 7 different movies. With the days of summer winding down, now is your chance to invite some friends over and try your hand at movie mixology. I've never had the famous cocktail from Casablanca, but I think that's where I'm going to start!

(Newser) - What's more popular than pancakes, banana bread, and chocolate chip cookies? With 12 million views in the last five years alone, it appears the answer is John Chandler's lasagna. The dish, with its nearly two pounds of meat and more than two pounds of cheese, is appropriately called the "World's Best Lasagna," and it's spent more than 10 years as the No. 1 recipe on AllRecipes.com (or close to it; it seems to be No. 2 right now), reports the Washington Post.Read More »from This May Be the Internet's Most Popular Recipe
The 43-year-old Texan, whose day job is not chef but salesman, first put the lasagna, a variation of his mom's recipe, up on the site in 2001 (total number of recipes he's added to the site: two). And though AllRecipes' users-it's the most trafficked English-language food site-typically want quick and easy meals, Chandler's 21-ingredient dish, with its 3-plus-hour prep and cooking time and a cost the Post estimates at $40, has somehow persisted as the exception.
With its 8,856 five-star reviews, it's certainly a
Inspired by a childhood visit to a London restaurant, Alex's twice-baked soufflé is a real showstopper - and it's easy to make.
The name of this dish literally translates from French as "Swiss soufflé." For those of you who tremble with terror at the word soufflé, and doubly so if it has Suissesse after it, hold on a minute, take a deep breath, and relax. Let me explain. This dish will change your life - or at least the way you entertain. It's simply a twice-baked cheese soufflé with tomato sauce - a soufflé that can be mostly prepared ahead of time. It's even inverted for the second round in the oven, so there's no worry about the soufflé falling. Honestly, you just can't ruin it.
Step back in time with me to London in 1980, when I went with my parents to the very famous, super-chic, Michelin-starred restaurant Le Gavroche. A renowned food destination with jet-set clientele, it was a truly incredible place, and we felt special being there. The Read More »from Alex Hitz's Soufflé "Suissesse"

Kristen Wiig as Paula Deen on 'SNL.'Everybody knows that Saturday Night Live has been the paragon of sketch comedy for nearly 40 years. Looking back on more than three decades of comedic genius, it's clear that the talent was key to the show's success. But without brilliant writing, true comics like Chevy Chase and Kristen Wiig wouldn't have much to deliver. To craft the show's iconic skits, SNL's proven teams of writers had to draw inspiration from everything and everywhere possible.Read More »from The Funniest 'Saturday Night Live' Skits All About Food

And as it turns out, food has proved to be a nearly endless source of comedy gold for SNL. The show's writers, some of whom have doubled as performers, have squeezed juice from the proverbial orange since SNL's debut. It has yet to run dry.
From John Belushi's trademark belligerence in "Samurai Delicatessen" to Alec Baldwin's innuendo-laden (albeit heavy-handed) "Schweddy Balls," food has found its way into some of the most memorable SNL moments to date. We've gone back and watched countless

Bite into one of these extra-juicy burgers to reveal a delicious surprise: a gooey melted-cheese center. Cheddar is a natural partner for a burger, but any good melting cheese will work -- think of all the possibilities!
1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
4 ounces cheddar, cut into 4 slabs
Vegetable oil, for grates
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted
Toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, red onion, bread-and-butter pickles, and ketchup

Transfer to a plate; with thumb, make a shallow indentation in center of patties, taking care not to expose cheese.
2. Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Just beforeRead More »from What's Better Than Cheese on a Burger? Cheese in a Burger!
