Tasty Kitchen Blog: Giveaway (Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker)

It’s summer and it’s Friday! And it’s hot, which is why you need ice cream. Or maybe it’s chilly and rainy, which means you need ice cream to cheer you up. Or maybe the weather is perfect where you are. If it is, you need to celebrate that with ice cream. I guess what I’m saying is that ice cream is the answer to pretty much every question, and the solution to every problem. (Except, perhaps, when the answer is bacon. But that’s a whole other post right there.)

Today, to show you how much we love you, and to ensure that copious amounts of homemade ice cream will grace your freezer all year round, we’re giving away two (2) Cuisinart ice cream makers. This machine will have you feasting on homemade frozen treats in 20 minutes or less. You’ll love it!


To enter this giveaway, just answer the following question in the Comments section of this post:

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Do you love the sheer simplicity of vanilla ice cream? Or is it chocolate all the way? Do you like add-ins like cookies or brownies, or do you prefer more exotic flavors like taro or black sesame? Share your favorite flavor(s) below and you’ll be automatically entered to win one of the ice cream makers!


One entry per person, please. No entries after noon tomorrow.

Winners will be selected at random and announced Sunday.

Have a great summer weekend, everyone!

Let’s Talk Tacos!

Posted by in Kitchen Talk

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Kitchen Talk (Tacos)

It’s Taco Tuesday-plus-one-day! I can’t believe we haven’t talked about tacos yet. I’ve been remiss! I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like tacos, and those that don’t probably just haven’t had a proper one. Tacos are the perfect lunch grab or quick weeknight meal, and they’re diplomatic, too: they aim to please everyone and address all possible needs. Gluten-free? Make sure you have corn tortillas. Vegetarian? Just serve extra vegetables or beans. Tacos are also fun to assemble, so all you have to do is provide a few choices for fillings and garnishes, and everyone can customize their own.

So let’s talk tacos today! Tell us:

What’s your favorite way to enjoy tacos?

I love making homemade tortillas. They are so simple to make, and put store-bought tortillas to shame. I make corn tortillas, and all you need is masa harina (or fresh masa if you can get it), water, and a touch of salt. If flour tortillas are your preference, I think the Homemade Flour Tortillas we featured here are a good place to start.

As for fillings, I’m very easy to please: I like them all, thank you very much. Carne asada street tacos, fish tacos, chorizo, sweet potato tacos, breakfast tacos, you name it. If it’ll fit in the tortilla, I’m not afraid to eat it. Well, maybe except goat cheese. I’m still working on that.

How about you? What’s your favorite way to enjoy tacos? Do you have any tips for making taco night extra special? Any secret sauces or favorite garnishes? Any strong opinions about what belongs and what doesn’t belong in a taco? Come share with us below!

Tired from a fun-filled weekend? Overindulged a bit? Maybe you’re just want something light and fresh but satisfying and elegant enough for guests. This Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta from TK members Trevor and Jennifer brings together so many flavors—chewy, doughy, creamy, peppery, juicy, sweet, earthy—and balances them so perfectly. It just might make me a goat-cheese-loving convert!

Whip this up for a light dinner any night of the week. Pair it with wine or a summer cocktail, and maybe a plate of charcuterie, and you’re all set. Easy peasy, yet kinda fancy too. It’s a win-win!

Hope your week is off to a great start!
