Yo mama so fatigued from cooking you dinner all those nights, we think you should consider returning the favor. All joking aside, it would be the considerate thing to do. And since we have 40 easy recipes for nostalgic dishes like tuna noodle casserole, meatloaf, mac ‘n’ cheese and biscuits, you don’t have much of an excuse not to. If preparing comfort food for your mom isn’t possible, find someone else’s mom (Mo Rocca-style).

Yo mama’ll be so dumbfounded by your altruism.

How Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos Prepare for a Disaster

Winter storm Juno turned out to be a well-received bust for New Yorkers. Despite it, Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos (who lived through Los Angeles earthquakes and Hurricane Sandy) remain self-proclaimed catastrophists and want to always be prepared for the worst.  On tonight’s Extra Virgin at 9pm ET, they are putting their family through a drill where they’ll build a family emergency kit and attempt to cook a meal without any power, electronics or any communication with the outer world. Living without showers, TV, the internet and cell phones is a challenge for the kids, but at least they have some pretty top-notch cooks to attempt a great Italian meal without a stove.

Watch Extra Virgin at 9pm ET to watch how they cook Bucatini all’Amatriciana, Insalata di Cannellini, Frullati Cantaloupe and Italian Tuna Salad without any electricity.

The Bacon, Egg, Cheese, French Fry, Pastrami Sandwich

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost their opportunity to play this Sunday way back in the first round of the playoffs. We’re guessing they either weren’t consuming enough of these Steel City Sandwiches or too many. This behemoth has similarities to a typical bacon, egg and cheese (namely bacon, eggs and cheese), but takes it several yards further with stacks of five Italian meats, hand cut fries, homemade Italian slaw and tomato.

Putting the fries and the slaw directly on the sandwich is a tradition of steel workers in Pittsburgh. Now a food truck in Los Angeles is bringing this Pennsylvania tradition from Steel City to Tinseltown.

See how it’s done and hear the word on the street on a new episode of Eat St. tonight at 10:30pm after the season premiere of Rebel Without a Kitchen.

Fashion Designer Zac Posen on the Similarities Between Food and Fashion

American designer Zac Posen has clothed Naomi Watts, Glenn Close and Reese Witherspoon, to name a few. On tonight’s Extra Virgin at 9pm ET, he’ll bestow his fashion finesse onto Debi Mazar and her daughter Giulia when they go to his studio for a behind-the-scenes tour and dress fitting. Then she’ll pay him back with fresh Peach Bellinis, Linguine with Red Snapper (photo after the jump) and Smoked Trout Salad that also has something interesting going on with dressing. For Debi, the correlation between food and fashion has always been two-fold. Firstly, she’s deeply passionate about both. Furthermore, her love of food has caused her dress size to fluctuate over the years, forcing her granting her the opportunity to buy more and more outfits. Zac thinks food and fashion are even more closely stitched. He says:
