For the Lightest, Crispiest Granola, Grab the Buttermilk

Granola can often be dense and hard, crunchy in a way that can shred the roof of your mouth. But with a splash of buttermilk, a naturally low-fat ingredient, the oats will plump right up, turning porous and crisp as steam escapes in the oven.

HaiSous' opening menu shows promise of chef Thai Dang's kitchen

As far as eye-rolling cliches go, the “phoenix from the ashes” narrative ranks pretty high as the worst among them, maybe after “a hidden gem off-the-beaten path,” but it’s hard to describe Thai and Danielle Dang’s story as anything but. On Wednesday, the husband-wife team opened their long-awaited...

What's the Story? Answering a reader's questions about mild sauce, the condiment you'll find only in Chicago

Barton J. Taylor now lives about 20 miles east of Atlanta in Lithonia, Ga., but the born-and-raised Chicagoan still misses what he calls "a taste of home": mild sauce, the sweet, slightly spicy condiment prevalent at chicken joints and other restaurants on the city's South and West sides.

Zucchini Ricotta Cheesecake

This has been a favorite recipe ever since I initially posted it in 2008. I threw together a zucchini-flecked ricotta cheesecake after a summer visit to the farmers' market.

I was just long steeping both a 2008 Korean ddok cha and a 2007 Mengsong puerh when it occurred to me how similar they were.
