He visited the school for a week-long camp last... read more

Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Rice

I recently hosted a dinner party for 12 people and wanted to serve cauliflower rice. But the idea of figuring out how to sauté, like, three heads of cauliflower — without the “rice” getting mushy — and how to have it all ready to serve at the same time was overwhelming. I wondered if there was an easier way. There is: oven roasting! Say hello to Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Rice. The... read more

Persian Roast Leg of Lamb

We ate a lot of leg of lamb when I was growing up, and whether it was roasted or turned into kebabs, my dad was always in charge of cooking it. I decided recently that it was time for me to tackle a roast leg of lamb myself. Naturally, I bought my leg of lamb from Lava Lake and turned to Cook’s Illustrated for guidance. The recipe below is based on one I learned in Cook’s Illustrated The Best... read more
