Food Gold: Bacon Arugula Tomato Turkey Sandwiches

Posted on Aug 4th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

Even if you are not a tomato lover, you simply cannot deny that summertime is the time to try to use those tasty ‘lil dudes any chance you get. They are at the peak of flavor and really, really cheap. I just copped a carton of beautiful grape tomatoes at Whole Foods for 2 bucks and after throwing them in a few salads over the weekend, decided to use the rest as a star ingredient in this sammich.

Rappin Ass Thursdays #41

Posted on Jul 29th, 2010 by Nick Catchdubs

Sometimes I feel bad about skipping (several) Thursdays on this column, but I’ve come to realize that I never meant to write this up religiously every week, for the same reason that I don’t write about every brand new record or leak already cluttering up blogland. This isn’t Julia & Julia with curse words, I’m gonna write about some stuff I feel like talmbout when I feel like talmboutit, not a dutiful batch of pithy remarks and Sendspaces you can set your watch to. So, without further ado… links and stuff after the jump! Read More

Food Gold Dessert Edition: Blueberry Clafouti

Posted on Jul 22nd, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

Lest you think we are just a bunch of salty dudes, we are happy to share with you our first ever dessert recipe this week, BLUEBERRY CLAFOUTI. Clafouti is basically fresh fruit covered in a flan-like batter and baked until golden brown. It was the second thing I ever learned how to cook (after roast chicken) and is one of the only desserts I cook on my own volition. The classic version comes with cherries but I wanted to flip the script a bit and use blueberries, which I feel provide a nice fresh tartness that is easier to handle than whole cherries.

Anyways, this requires almost no knowledge of baking and is really nice in the summer with some vanilla ice cream on top. I hope you give it a shot, my good dessert-fearing friends! Read More

Food Gold: Spicy Black Beans with Chorizo and Sour Cream

Posted on Jul 14th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

I know we’ve been a little light and lively with our recent FOOD GOLD recipes so for this week I decided to get back to the pleasure zones of carbs, meat and fats. Today’s dish, Spicy Black Beans with Chorizo and Lime Sour Cream contains all those things and is super hearty and ready to party. I like to serve it as a thick and zesty dip, alongside plenty of tortilla chips. Dipset! Dipset! Dipset! Read More

Food Gold: Homemade Tropical Mango Salsa

Posted on Jul 6th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

Yo! It is literally one hundred and two degrees here in NYC so once again this week’s Food Gold is going to be a “non cooker.” The good news is that we have a new lively and lovely fruit-based salsa for you cats to try out. It takes about ten minutes to whip up and can be used throughout the week to add some zip to your breakfast burrito, tortilla chips or love life. It also tastes about 10000x better than the store bought stuff, which is often loaded with loads of extra salt and old fruit.

So long as you pay attention the size of your cuts when you are doing your prep work, you really can’t mess this up! Let’s do this.

Food Gold: Prosciutto/Honey/Goat Cheese “No Cook” Sandwiches

Posted on Jun 30th, 2010 by Elliot Aronow

Right now it is hot in NYC. It is very hot in NYC. I didn’t feel like cranking up the ol’ stove this weekend so instead I made an absolutely delicious cooking-free treat, my very own signature Proscuitto/goat cheese/honey/basil snackwich. These handsome little devils are perfect for breakfast, a brunch treat, a mid day snack or a even very light dinner. They are super easy to make and simply work because of the way the ingredients play off one another. You got salty ham, you got sweet honey, you got creamy cheese, you got crunchy olive oil coated bread. This one’s a dream date for sure! Ingredients after the jump. Read More
