Deeply crispy, crunchy snacks are a vice I’m simply unwilling to resist, and I like to make them myself whenever possible. That’s why I’m currently obsessed with this recipe for sweet-salty, crispy-crunchy crackers updated from of a Sussman family classic, tzibbeleh kuchen (onion cookies). It’s passed down from my late grandmother, who often had a plate of them on the kitchen table at her house in Queens, NY.

Move over, popcorn chicken, there's a new addictive fried chicken bite in town (if the town is Taiwan). Salt and pepper chicken is one of the country's most popular street foods, and unlike chargrilled blood sausage skewers, pork buns, hand-pulled noodles and other things I'll be eating at the Taste Taiwan Culinary Tour, you can actually make this in your kitchen at home.

Le Creuset, the cast-iron cookware royalty that governs all others, just released this stop-motion video for its new Wine & Cheese Collection. For normal folk, it's simply an eye-catching few moments of appetizer porn. For me, however, it's an epic battle to the death, because it's Friday. Watch the video, then find out what actually happened at this otherwise classy cocktail shindig.

I love potato skins, but the combination of bacon, melted cheddar and melting sour cream can actually be a little too much even for a dish that's meant to be shameless. Don't shoot, I'm only human. Instead, I load my potato skins with creamy homemade spinach feta dip, sprinkle with parmesan and broil 'til crispy on top. That way you can eat more of them.
