  • Turkey and Porcini Meatballs with Rosemary and Polenta | Serious Eats : Recipes – My meatball addiction knows no bounds. If made correctly, meatballs are actually so much lighter than meat by itself. Pillowy, more delicate, easier to portion-adjust. And so versatile and easy to throw together.

    This is my "Tuscan-inspired" meatball ragu over polenta. Rustic and comforting. Full of the woodsy twang of rosemary and the earthy punch of porcini mushrooms. And it couldn't be easier.

    Just throw all the meatball ingredients in a bowl—lean turkey, fresh rosemary, dried porcini mushrooms, Pecorino Romano cheese—and gently mix together and form into balls. Then the meatballs are simmered in a gussied-up bought tomato sauce, and poured over creamy quick-cooking polenta.

    It's comforting and hearty, but because of the way we cook the polenta and the turkey (as opposed to beef) in the meatballs, it's actually really light. I serve it with a big green salad.

  • Building an OS X Mountain Lion installer thumb drive | TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog – Last year, I posted about creating a standalone Lion USB installer thumb drive. This year, I update those instructions for Mountain Lion.

    You'll need a copy of the OS X Mountain Lion installer. If you saved a copy when you first installed Mountain Lion, great. If not, you'll need to re-download it from the Mac App Store.

    Launch the App Store and option-click the Purchases tab. An "Install" button should appear next to Mountain Lion. Click it to re-download the installer. You can use this option-click-Purchases trick to re-download any purchase, not just Mountain Lion.

    Once the large multi-GB installer finishes downloading, go to your Applications folder to find the installer itself. It is called Install Mac OS X Mountain Lion.
