One of my favorite cold-weather dishes celebrates three of my favorite cold-weather ingredients: potatoes, bacon and cheese. It's tartiflette, and if you've ever attempted to survive a winter in the Alps (or the northeastern United States), it's a dish you'll want to know intimately. Pour it a glass of wine. Seriously, pour wine right in there — the potatoes will love you for it.

I cringe to think of my girlfriend’s reaction to me making a classic tuna noodle casserole, but I still love the idea of it. That’s why I decided to revive the old favorite and completely revamp it. This is a Japanese-influenced version with soba noodles and miso cream.

Recently I was forced to decide between shepherd’s pie and a steak and ale pie, and I really didn’t know what to do. I thought to myself “why can’t the two be combined?” which quickly turned to an indignant “why aren't these things combined?” So you know what I did? I combined them.

Sometimes people are like, “Hey, why do all your recipes have meat in them?” or “Why does everything you make have carbs in it?” or “Do you have to use so much butter?” Luckily, my Super Greens and Cheese Casserole addresses some of those points up there, in addition to being an awesome winter side dish recipe packed with healthy leafy greens.

Bread bowls aren't just for clam chowder. In formulating a series of dips for the Food Republic Test Kitchen, I decided to transform a beloved appetizer, stuffed mushrooms. Taking the mushrooms off the heat as soon as they release their liquid will keep the shroomy flavor intact, and frying shallots in bacon fat for a little texture and added bacon flavor is just a good idea.

Here's my thing with sliders: by the time you're full, you will have ingested at least twice as much bread as if you'd just had a regular burger. One slider won't do it...unless they're one of these spectacularly filling mini Paleo bacon avocado burgers.

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 and hand-pulled noodles, you can actually make this in your kitchen at home.

These mini stuffed lamb meatballs are just about everything you could ask for in a one-bite party snack: meaty, cheesy, tangy, savory and sweet all at the same time. Do not underestimate the amount of these people will eat, particularly the ones who realize they love ground lamb all of a sudden after years of claiming not to like lamb.
