One year ago, my Mom requested a chocolate pie for her birthday. This year, she wanted a repeat performance. I used the same recipe (although with a pastry crust instead of graham cracker), but the process went much more smoothly this time. After a year more of baking experience, I whisked the custard with ease and confidence, trusting in the process. Check out chocolate pie 2.0:

In the end, practice is key to a polished pie.
Sunday morning, we rubbed down a pork shoulder, started a fire, and let smoke slowly coax meat into submission. With all afternoon to while away (over Scrabble games, teen garden party supervision, and other such petit-bougie tasks), we prepared a skillet cornbread (complete with sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms on the top) and steamed a head of cauliflower. When dinner takes all day, anticipation reaches a breaking point. As the carving knife slid through bark and smoke ring and collagenous flesh, I could barely contain my appetite. In this video, we demonstrate how to make Sunday dinner last from morning till night, no sweat necessary.
