5. – The Chicago Tribune Meatloaf Making Tricks “Which brings us to that other perfect meatloaf. It can be found on Nantucket, where it is lost on the summer residents and overlooked by tourists who jam the cobblestone streets from June to Labor Day. But among locals it is legend, and can be found at a shack called Claudette’s on the east rim of the island. It also is a fine example of how meatloaf need not be for winter.”

4. – The Boston Globe Foods we obsess over “A food obsession can revolve around something luxurious – like French bubbly or grass-fed steaks. But we think it’s more likely that whatever strikes your fancy is considerably more ordinary. We know people obsessed with certain jams and the perfect kind of toast to spread them on, with melons at a particular point of ripeness, with a blend of coffee, or a cake to go with it. From time to time, we’ll feature an obsession and after some tinkering in the kitchen, perhaps a recipe too.”

3. – The LA Times Wine Decanting: Give wines some air “Air is one of the most talked about but most misunderstood elements in wine. We say a wine needs to “breathe” as if it just needs a few minutes to freshen itself up, releasing its seductive perfume. In fact, most wines have been waiting years just to cast off a little gas.”

2. – The NY Times Freeze that Thought “I know: you do. In that messy box you have some ice cubes, some stuff you bought frozen — a pizza? Lean Gourmet? peas? — and maybe, if you cook a lot, some stock or hastily stored leftovers. You also have a load of things you’ve already forgotten about and will eventually toss, even though you would have been guilt-struck if you had discarded them when they were fresh.”

1. – The Washington Post If Big Mama Could See Me Now “Girl, I’ll probably take some heat for this, but I’m going to say it anyway: Far too many of us view cooking as subservient. We — and I can say that because I was once one of you — proudly tell prospective husbands that we don’t do cooking.”
