Super Bowl party food options for the non-cooking types (and the cooking ones, too)

So you’re not up for cooking for your Super Bowl party: That’s okay. Cooking’s not for everyone. Don’t let anyone shame you! You have tons of other-people-who-know-exactly-what-they’re-doing-make-it-for-you options, including: • The Fully Inflated 2-Foot-Long Grinder and more from John Sundstrom’s very tasty new Slab Sandwiches + Pie • Great-sounding Filipino food from the pop-up Food and Sh*t • Reportedly…

Damn the Weather mixes the perfect mid-winter cocktail

One of the best winter drinks I’ve had in recent months is the Calvados Old Fashioned at Damn The Weather, the newish bar in Pioneer Square. Have you tried it?

The cocktail is clean and robust. Even better, it’s easy to recreate at home, the perfect drink by the fireplace or while watching the Daily Show.

Below is the recipe courtesy of Damn the Weather owner/bartender Bryn Lumsden.

Making Spirits Right: broVo’s Amaro

  When it comes to holiday cheer, make mine a Manhattan. The classic recipe calls for rye whiskey, sweet vermouth and Angostura bitters, but nowadays variations abound: bourbon instead of rye, Carpano Antica in place of vermouth, or a dash of orange bitters to call out the spicy notes of the rye. Lately I’ve been experimenting…

Everyone’s favorite breakfast recipe: Apricot-Pistachio Granola

“I’m making your granola again,” my mom told me on her last call. I already had baked my own family’s weekly double-batch. My friend and yours, Nancy Leson, keeps a regular supply on hand, as does nearly everyone I know who’s tasted it. It isn’t “my” granola, though, it’s Megan Gordon’s. I got the…

A toast to former Seattle Times reporter E.B. White (Yeah, that E.B. White)

So, it’s E.B. White’s birthday on July 11. I propose we hoist a cocktail in honor of the most famous Seattle Times reporter. Yes, it’s true, the author of “Charlotte’s Web” and co-author of every writer’s bible, “The Elements of Style,” used to live the ink-and-paper life, tapping away on our metro desk from September 1922 to June 1923 before he was, uh, fired.

Nora Ephron’s favorite Tom Douglas recipe


The late Nora Ephron.

Monday is the late Nora Ephron’s birthday. Most locals know her from “Sleepless in Seattle,”  but true Ephron fans know she’s more than just a chick-flick director and screenwriter. Of her many talents, she was also a great cook and party host.
In her honor, we’re posting her favorite party dip, which happens to be the crab recipe of Seattle’s Tom Douglas.

The popular Sherry Cocktail served at Canon.

The popular Sherry Cocktail served at Canon.

From the mid-to late 19th century, the Sherry Cobbler was one of the most popular cocktails  in America. It also made using  a  straw cool. This lost classic is making a comeback around Seattle. (Check out our story here.) It also happens to be very easy to make at your place.
