What is everyone's favorite recipe

and how do you make it?


I am the king of braising. It is my most clutch technique. I do a four-hour leg of lamb

No recipe. Look in the pantry or fridge and enjoy!

on shorter notice I like to make keema aloo matar. minced lamb with peas and potatoes. it presents as sort of a gravy/bolognese and you can eat it with roti or rice

My wife’s favorite protein is lamb.

one of the coolest dishes from a family cultural perspective is kofta.

I am Balkan and my wife is Indian. but kofta is roughly the same in both regions. even by nomenclature. I’ve always found that really cool


Low key huge pasta fagioli guy rn. Love a good pantry dinner that’s easy and fun to make and makes great leftovers.

Pasta Fagioli

slightly adapted from Sip & Feast

  • 2 14.5 oz cans Cannelini beans
  • 0.5 lbs ditalini or other small pasta
  • 3 oz minced guanciale*
  • 1 parm rind
  • 2 celery stalks, minced
  • 1 carrot, minced
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • bay leaf
  • pepper
  • 2 tsp Calabrian chili oil
  • 3 oz tomato paste
  • 1 qt chicken stock
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil + more to drizzle
  • 1-2 tbsp butter
  • water to thin soup

(1) render guanciale in olive oil over medium heat in large pot
(2) add tomato paste, fry
(3) add chili oil, fry
(4) add onion, sweat
(5) add carrot & celery, sweat
(6) add garlic, sweat
(7) add beans & stock, bring to simmer
(8) smush beans with e.g. a potato masher to thicken
(9) add rosemary, thyme, bay leaf, and parm rind & simmer for 10 min
(10) add pasta & stir intermittently to prevent from sticking at the bottom of the pot. consider adding some salt here.
(11) adjust thickness of soup w water, keeping in mind it will tighten up considerably as it sits
(12) cook until pasta is done & season w salt & pepper
(12) stir in butter

*guanciale is great but pancetta is more often what I have and even bacon prob works


yeah let’s be real nobody fkn sells guanciale.


My fave fancy grocery store does but everywhere sells pancetta these days so it’s really about whether I splurged on groceries recently

I haven’t done this recipe bust Pasta Fagiole is tier 1

More pasta dishes need beans

Drop some recipes man, this stuff sounds fuego


righto. I’m of the opinion that cured meats are worth staying at the very tip top of the line. I’m not keen on buying Kroger prosciutto

This is like a warm hug in the winter


sure I can try to quantify it, never really measured or written down or nothin


broadly agreed. Boars Head pancetta seems to do the trick tho.

What is Juwan’s favorite recipe? Mashed potatoes and black eyed peas?

I’ll see myself out without posting my grilled cheese recipe

But this is the best thing I have ever made


Literally just made a quick (not at all traditional) fagioli for dinner. It’s a weeknight staple for me. I usually start from the food wishes recipe and adjust based on what’s in my fridge/pantry.

Some other great options this time of year are mapo tofu or pork verde stew with white beans.


My final contribution for now:


many people are intimidated by ribs. they are shockingly easy to make in the oven and they are still fall off the bone good
