Sifted: Father’s Day Recipes, Perfect Pancakes and Potstickers with a Twist

Two Outrageous Burgers by Giusto Gusto

5 Hot Links We’re Loving:

  1. Nothing says “I love you, Dad” quite like a manly burger packed with flavor. Giusto Gusto brings out the big guns with Beef & Sausage Burgers with Horseradish Mayo and Turkey Burgers with Sriracha Mayo.
  2. What’s the secret to making delicious blueberry buttermilk pancakes every time? Visit Cooking Classy’s blog and find out!
  3. Make these adorable lawnmower cupcakes by Six in the Suburbs with the little ones this Father’s Day. The sweet treats may even be a subtle reminder of that unruly backyard that needs tending.
  4. It may be too hot for soup, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up it up completely. Iowa Girl Eats took all the greatness of French Onion Soup and transformed it into potstickers for a lighter, more summer-appropriate meal.
  5. Salad doesn’t have to mean green and boring. Some Kitchen Stories made a beautiful and fresh black rice salad with mango that we can’t wait to try.

Happy Birthday, Cooking Channel!

birthday cake

Happy birthday to us, happy birthday to us . . .

It’s our first birthday!
Cooking Channel is one year old — can you believe it? We’ve seen so much in the last 12 months, and yet we’re really just getting started. If we live to be a 100-year-old network, we still wouldn’t get to meet all the amazing, passionate food people out there. There’d still be a million new recipes to try, dishes to taste and things to learn about food and cooking. So we’re as excited about the next 99 years as we are about this last one.

Turning ‘1’ is a pretty big deal, a milestone that should be rewarded with presents, cake and a giant party — wouldn’t you agree? Here’s our ultimate birthday wishlist:

Inside the James Beard House

For food people, the James Beard Awards rival the Oscars. We root for our favorite or hometown chefs and seek out the restaurants of award-winners while traveling. Any mention of Mr. Beard’s name in a restaurant review means major culinary clout.

If you identify with the above, you can understand my excitement upon being invited to attend a dinner at the James Beard House—the former residence of the man himself in New York’s West Village.
