Around the Internet Kitchen: Traffic Jam

This weekend I’m taking a road trip up to Connecticut which means I have to brave quite possibly the worst traffic situation ever: I-95 between New York City and Connecticut on a Friday afternoon.

Growing up in Wyoming, I’m really used to driving long distances and actually kind of enjoy a good road trip, but I really dislike horrible traffic. I guess that should go without saying. I don’t know too many people that get thrilled over a traffic jam.

Anyway, I have a post scheduled to automatically publish tomorrow just in case I’m still stuck in traffic. If you don’t hear from me by Monday, I might need someone to airlift my car off the Interstate…

No poll this week because I’m posting a lot of Thanksgiving stuff next week, but here are a few interesting links as always!

Will Wikis Work for the Kitchen This is a really interesting article on the new trend for recipe sites – the wiki. The idea is that if you let a bunch of people contribute on a single recipe, they will produce a solid version of the recipe. Now, there are some people that completely disagree with this theory and say you need an expert on the case. I’m sort of torn on the debate because I’m not an expert, but I think I more or less produce quality recipes. That said, Christopher Kimball probably hates me. Anyway, it’s an interesting read.

Vidalia’s Mac and Cheese – Vidalia’s restaurant in DC is an institution of sorts. One of their more famous dishes is their mac and cheese. Somebody finally wrung the recipe out of one of the creators. (@ Washingtonian)

101 Ways to Start the Day – Man I love these roundup style articles that Bittman writes. The idea for this one is basically quick dishes you can make (quick equals under an hour) that will help out your Thanksgiving day planning. It should go without saying that most of them sound delicious and would, in fact, be delicious even on non-turkey day. (@ NY Times)

Oyster CasseroleOk. I’ll be honest. I love oysters, but I’ve never even heard of this. I want it immediately though. (@ The Bitten Word)

Have a good weekend everyone!

  1. How funny. I thought you were going to post a recipe for some kind of preserve called “traffic jam.” I live in Montana (formally of Florida), so I rarely see one of those (traffic jams) and I was totally thinking of something else. Like jelly.
