Your Top Picks: Who’s Coming to Dinner?

It’s Friday. Or maybe it’s Saturday. Either way, you’re having a dinner party. Normally that means friends or family, sometimes even both. But what if you could invite over one Cooking Channel chef or host for the evening? That’s the question we posed to Cooking Channel fans last week. From United Tastes of America host [...]

Condiment Crackdown: Cooking Channel Fans Like Their Hot Sauce

It all started last week when Liz’s post on the charms of chili paste prompted an all out what’s-in-your-pantry comment war. Cooking Channel fans dauphin and JohnE O began by seeing who had more mustard containers, before moving on to types of miso, tricks for homemade ketchup and even a recipe for sweet hot chili [...]

How To Make Fresh Corn Tamales

I was determined to make tamales this summer but kept hearing that the corn piling up at the markets wasn’t the “right” kind. Sweet and bursting maybe, but not the starchy field corn needed to make traditional tamales. Though they can be made year round using cornmeal, masa harina or tamal flour specially made for [...]

Check out a few more fun pesto combinations, below.
