Whenever I go to a restaurant and learn that salmon grilled on a cedar plank on the menu, I order it. The flavor of the cedar mixed with the salmon is incredible. I never put much thought into making salmon this was myself, until I had dinner at a friend's house and served salmon on a cedar plank. He said it wasn't hard to do. So I bought come cedar grilling planks (12 for $20) and gave it a try last night. Here's the recipe I used.
I grilled the salmon in my Weber charcoal grill. I used hardwood lump charcoal, which takes a long time to heat up completely, but once it's going you get steady heat for a long time. I soaked the planks in water for a couple of hours before use.
The results were as good as I hoped! The salmon dinner last night was excellent, and the cold salmon salad I had for lunch today was even better.
Baker/cookbook author Heather Baird was so inspired by a book of photos from the Hubble space telescope that she created a "Black Velvet Nebula Cake" that is studded with edible white confetti sprinkles to create a starscape that shoots right through the whole cross-section, while the surface is intricately painted with gorgeous nebulae made from tinted edible gels.

Amazing astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti shows us how she cooks one of her favorite meals aboard the International Space Station, whole red rice with peas and turmeric chicken. From the European Space Agency:
Food is an important item in space, also on the psychological side; that's why astronauts are allowed a certain quantity of the so-called "bonus food" of their choice that reminds them of their home cooking tastes. We asked Samantha to show us how she manages to cook one of her bonus food recipes in microgravity.

I usually avoid hot sauce because I'm afraid it might contain onions and/or cilantro, both of which are loathsome by any objective standard. Here's a hot sauce recipe from my friends Kelly and Erik at Homegrown Evolution that sounds perfect. Read the rest
Fans of Asian cooking will enjoy this kit for making okonomiyaki at home (Buy a kit on Amazon). It’s essentially a frittata made with batter, cabbage, plus whatever you want like shrimp, or pork, etc, kind of like different pizza toppings. (Okonomiyaki roughly means “grill what you want.”) We were introduced to these kits by one of our high school exchange students, Kazuki. His mom sent them to us from Japan, but you can get them at your local Asian food store or from Amazon.
Each kit comes with little bags of yam powder, batter mix, tempura crisps, seaweed flakes, and shaved bonita. (BTW – do not let your cat get a whiff or taste of the bonita flakes and then leave the package on the counter. Ask me how I know.) You add eggs, green onion, cabbage and bacon, as well as mayo and okonomi sauce (be sure to get some of this delicious sauce when you get the kit – it’s NOT included!). Each kit will make 2-3 okonomiyaki “pancakes.”
You’ll also get translated English instructions. I like the cute kawaii style Japanese instructions with a little boy and girl making their own okonomiyaki together. It’s like a free mini comic. But one thing puzzled me and I had to ask Kazuki what this part meant: “The little girl is saying ‘cook the bacon until it is the color of a fox!’”
Top the whole thing off with squiggles of mayo and okonomi sauce (kind of like tonkasu sauce – both sweet and savory). Read the rest
As a quick ASMR trigger in the middle of a work day, Justin's Honey Peanut Butter and any good dark chocolate can't be beat. The recipe is simple: smear a wadge of peanut butter over a shard of chocolate. Adjust proportions to taste.
The gourmet peanut butter has a boosted sweetness and saltiness to complement cocoa. And though Justin's also sells pre-made dark-chocolate cups, I like my own ratio. Dark chocolate bars also offer stronger flavor than thin-walled cups. Read the rest
