  • Fried Mushrooms with Smoked Paprika Remoulade recipe on – Fried mushrooms are one of my favorite fried foods (vying for the title with fried pickles). As with fried pickles, I prefer to slice the mushrooms instead of leaving them whole: More surface area means more fried goodness. I've experimented with different variations of the breading, but this one with panko and parsley is hard to beat. I've also included a recipe for smoked paprika remoulade, a nice dipping sauce if serving the mushrooms as an appetizer or snack. The mushrooms are also delicious atop a lightly dressed green salad with shavings of Pecorino cheese.

  • How To Cook Beans in the Oven — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn | The Kitchn – I can still remember the first time I made a pot of home-cooked beans. Up until then my only experience of beans was straight from a can. Cooking dried beans felt exotic and old-fashioned, fancy and cowboy all at once. I took my first bite of a simple batch of Good Mother Stallard beans from Rancho Gordo and almost yelled out loud — they surprised me so much. Deeply rich and meaty, swimming in a broth that came just from the beans — no garlic and onions — it seemed like kitchen witchery that transformed dry beans and water into such flavor.

    Beans have become a regular staple in my kitchen since then, no less magical for their familiarity. But I did discover an even more magical way to cook them: in the oven. Let me explain why this is my favorite method of all.
