While they may appear fancier and fussier than their larger counterparts, baby potatoes are, in my opinion, quite a bit easier to work with. They cook much more quickly than full sized potatoes and don’t need to be peeled or chopped.
Soft-boiled eggs have been making a culinary comeback in recent years, like a vintage classic given new life. However, home cooks tend to be as intimidated of them as poached eggs. I get it. I’ve been intimidated of them my entire life.
This year, I decided it’s about time I made a St. Patrick’s Day dessert featuring Irish Cream. This boozy, decadent pie is made more with the adults in mind. It all begins with a chocolate graham cracker crust.
Street tacos are, and always will be, my definition of a taco. The tiny tortillas are always corn, never flour. They are heated until pliable on the hot flattop or charred over open flame, then kept warm so that they steam together and become so soft that you have to serve them up in a double layer, two per taco. The meat is always well-seasoned, smoky and acidic, with a little char on the edges of each bite.
