How to reheat pizza | @thefauxmartha

I never knew of the great art of reheating pizza to perfection until the other day. We first used the Food52 method of crisping up the crust in a hot cast iron pan, then adding a bit of water and covering to steam for a minute or two. Then, we took it a step further and finished it off under the broiler. For the love.

When you find something that works, and works really well, it must be shared. With that said, it’s a double tip week. Stick with me, I’ve got some explaining to do. I’ve confessed it here before. I’m a terrible gift giver. Awful, really. Maybe the worst. Thinking of gifts (good ones worth buying and giving) is absolutely debilitating for me. I freeze up and forget every idea I never had for the person. Then I declare, “No gifts this year!” Eventually I order something lame online and keep eye contact to a minimum until the awkwardness has passed. I’m not kidding when I say this—gift giving is a real problem for me. Read more

If there’s one dirty dish I hate cleaning most, it’s a cheesy one. Hot water and a scrub brush just mean melted cheese shmeared everywhere. It’s counterintuitive, but turn your water temp to icy cold when cleaning cheesy dishes. The cheese will harden. Then trade your scrub brush for a pan scraper and scrape off the hardened cheese. Resume normal cleaning methods once all signs of cheese are gone.

After countless times of finding a layer of spoiled or smashed berries by the time I made it to the bottom of the container, I finally got smart and started eating berries upside down from the container (especially delicate raspberries). They last a bit longer this way too.
