Come on into Our Kitchen! We're always cooking up a batch of something good, whether it's for ourselves, or for family and friends. And, even in the dead of winter, you might get a whiff of the grill going for some great outdoor barbecuing. Steaks, burgers, dogs, and - sure - even some veggies just taste better with flames. The smoker gets a good workout, too, with ribs, poultry, and tenderloins. If you really want to be adventurous, we'll even tell you how to build a pit for a pig roast!

We have you covered for any event with tasty recipes from our Cheese, Wine & Appetizers section. Get great advice on cheese selections, choosing wines to go with foods, and a host of new ideas for any gathering. Try wonton chips, soup shooters, or go for a more decadent baked quiche fondue.

Some like it hot - whether it's from temperature or it's perked up with peppers. If you'd like to know the details, check out our guide to peppers - hot, medium, and mild. Then head into our regional section with Texas taking the lead featuring such classics as frog legs, cornbread, and black-eyed peas. Hoppin' John is a traditional New Year's dish you won't want to miss when ringing in the New Year.

Travel further afield and discover the delights of Caribbean flavors. You'll find traditional dishes here that include pastechis, bitterbal, and coo-coo. No collection would be complete without a jerk rub and a heat-filled marinade.

Continue traveling with us to India and China, two more of our favorite cuisines. Of course, each has so many differences within each country's regions, but we've provided plenty of basics to get you started. If you're new to wok cooking, you'll find tips on selecting and caring for this essential tool. You'll even grow to love it for a host of other dishes. Our favorites include Spring Rolls and Shrimp Balls. The India food section is growing, but we share tips on making samosas, selecting chutneys, and classic flatbread recipes.

The Miscellaneous Section is a catch-all for favorite recipes along with a variety of tips any cook will find useful in the kitchen. We start with apple pancakes and end with how to make wine vinegar. In between, there are tips on food safety, fondue etiquette, how to select lentils, and making the cheesiest macaroni and cheese.

At last, we reach the Dessert section, filled with wonderfully sweet treats. Go light in summer with berries or dive into richer delights such as Grand Marnier Balls and White Chocolate Cheesecake. Make your own marshmallows for the kids and try out our very popular chocolate chip cookie recipe - they're the chewiest, softest ever!

Throughout the year, we also offer seasonal sections that will help you through the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays along with a full guide to Summer entertaining. There's always something going on in Our Kitchen!
