Erin Cooks The Internet: August 15, 2007

August 15, 2007

I’m quite aware that the Baker’s Edge Brownie Pan is an amazing feat of pure genius, especially since 75 people on my google reader have told me so. Unfortunately though I’m not an “edge” kind of girl. I like the gooey middle pieces, so chances are I probably won’t ever purchase the Goliath of all […]

Cooks Illustrated Chicken Tikka Masala

August 14, 2007

Last weekend, Chris and I had lunch with our friend Anna at a restaurant called Bukhara in Jamaica Plain. It was insanely delicious and not only did I eat my own food, but I also liberally sampled everyone elses’ selections as well. You’ve been warned, don’t let me loose on a plate of fresh naan. […]

August 10, 2007

So that Hell’s Kitchen finale — how cool was that!? Yeah, I’m kidding. I should have suspected that this week wouldn’t be the finale, but I let FOX blindly convince me that Rock and Bonnie would duke it out to the death. I was wrong. I honestly started to get panicked half way through the […]

Coca-Cola Steak Tip Marinade

August 9, 2007

Chris and I had the most amazing grilled steak tips ever the other day prepared by our friends Meghan and Tom. After one delicious bite I was hooked, and proceeded to rave about them for the rest of the evening. Thankfully they were kind enough to share the recipe for the marinade. These fabulous steak […]

Perfect Popcorn: A Tale of Fear and Edible Redemption

August 8, 2007

I’ve been on a bit of a popcorn bender lately. It all started innocently enough. One evening a few weeks ago I was settling in for the night, all snuggled up in my cozy comfy bed, when I came across an Alton Brown episode about popcorn. And then I started craving it. The only problem […]
