Fueling up. First time in Paris in, like, eight years. Obviously, need to do a better job assigning myself stories.

I wrote a piece for the November issue of @bonappetitmag, talking about all those weeknight dishes I cook when I'm not ordering in or sitting at a bar. As good as (I hope) the recipes are, they're nowhere near as good as the photography and food styling. Being able to work with a quality team is why you (or, at least, I) work in magazines. It's what makes it all worth it. 📸 @yungbludlau Styling @rebeccajurkevich (Oh yeah, this is roasted cherry tomatoes and fresh mozz.) More recipes in the link.

When you're sampling 21 desserts in a single day, you've got to sneak in your exercise where and when you can, even if that means getting all Gene Kelly. Of course, notice that @chefmarcela and @official_chefjasonsmith are totally just sitting there, not burning any calories at all. But yeah, Episode 4 of BestBakerInAmerica, this Wednesday night at 10pm. Crème brûlée Skills Challenge, opera cake Master Challenge, which just might have been the tastiest challenge of the entire series. Hmm...

When you convince yourself that because you walked to and from the donut place, and that counts as exercise, that you absolutely *deserve* a donut.

Nothing simple about simple. Lucky enough to have just done a scallop-sushi demo with @sushinakazawa at @chicago_gourmet. Kept hoping that Wags was gonna show up.

Always one of the easiest, and best, pasta sauces you cook up. Basically a version of the sungold sauce from @babboristorante that my wife @simoneshubuck started riffing on years ago when she worked there. Bunch of olive oil in a pan, smashed garlic, med-low heat till caramelly brown. Add a mess of good, peak-season, whole, small tomatoes. Salt. Summer of med-low heat till they start to release their jammy juices. Smash some with the back of a wooden spoon to move things along. A bunch of chopped fresh basil. It's done when it looks like this. To serve add a splash of pasta water and a knob of butter. Pasta straight into the pan. Toss and toss. Some parm at the end wouldn't be the worst. (For step by step, check InstaStories.)

Riffing on @bonappetitmag's Best Ever Ribs, as I've been doing forever. This time, made a rub of salt, pepper, brown sugar, dried mustard, cayenne, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder. Rubbed up the racks, wrapped each in foil, baked at 300 degrees on a sheet tray for three-plus hours. Let cool. Collected all the juices, cooled, skimmed the fat. Blended with store bought sweet barbecue sauce. Med-hot grill, crisp up the ribs and shellack with the sauce. Turn, turn, turn. Hack up, serve.

Roasted broccoli. Never not good. 425 degree oven, salt, olive oil, chile flakes, roast on one side only. Finish with lemon juice, some more olive oil, maybe some Maldon.

My girl @simoneshubuck and gallerist (that's a word, right?) Janine Foeller are opening an art-and-food space next week in Brooklyn called Wifey. You can follow em at @wifeybk and dig all sorts of cool stuff, like these handmade mugs by Simone and @j____h_ceramics, chef collaborations, flowers, tepache(!)--all that and then some.

Those are pork chops. Really beautiful ones. In my ed letter last month, I wrote about the rise of whole-animal, craft butchers. In NYC alone, we're lucky enough to have joints like @fleishers and @eatmeaty and @themeathook and @whitegoldbutchers. What I love most about them, and their generation, is the pork they sell--rich, flavorful, slicked with fat and, yes, humanely raised. I got these rib chops yesterday from @8handsfarm, seasoned them with salt and grilled them over a medium-hot fire till crispy and med/med-rare. I then sliced the chops and spooned over them a great-on-everything riff on nuoc cham (fish sauce, lime juice, bit of sugar, garlic, ginger and minced cilantro stems). So good.

Still deciding whether to build a pulled pork sandwich or make a taco. Either way, it's nice to have options. Green Eggery courtesy of @notorious17.

Close up. Of that sliced rib eye I posted a few weekends ago. I mean, I keep hearing about how there are quality gas grills these days. But I've never used one that delivers the kind of hard sear that charcoal does. And not from flare ups (that's when you slide your steak to the 'cool' side of the grill), but from an intense wall of heat emanating from a pile of glowing orange coals. Unbeatable.

Had one of those nights where I was running late and needed to make a quick dinner. Grabbed a couple sweet Italian sausages at the store, a can of white beans and a bottle of tomato purée, and made this. Turned out real tasty. So I wrote it up for the @bonappetitmag.

Whenever I'm feeling run down and head coldy, like I am now--even thought it's June 8 (WTF!?!)--I order this clean, simple soup from a nearby Vietnamese spot, V Café. Rice noodles, greens, broth, chicken, cilantro, and then I hit it up with lots of lime juice and hot sauce. I don't know if it actually makes me better, but it does make me feel better.

When you stop by @8handsfarm to see what they got at the butcher counter for dinner tonight, but then you notice these just-now-in-season strawberries and you can't not pick up a couple of pints. Of course, you also end up grabbing a beautifully tied and seasoned lamb saddle, but that's for later.

So, we hosted a @bonappetitmag grilling party last night, and partnered with @potatorolls, which basically made my year. I mean, I don't mean to sound like some paid spokesperson (if only), but from holiday ham on those little square party rolls to all things everything all summer long on their burger buns, I will always drive the extra mile for some Martin's Potato rolls. Like these ones here, cushioning @leedesrosiers herby lamb burgers with yogurty spread. Not pictured: all the amazing veg and aged porterhouses grilled up by @jjlthedabney, who made the trip from D.C. with his not-messing-around grilling rig. And, as always, thanks to @andrewtarlow and the all-pro team at @reynardnyc. 📸 @liz01

Learning to make some salsa verde with the exceedingly charming @pablo_loza. Char some whole cloves of garlic, three whole tomatillos, some onion and jalapeño, add salt and cilantro, and mash it all up in a molcajete.
