Restaurant Review: Gyu-Kaku

 
Last weekend, I tried a fairly new restaurant in Brookline – Gyu-Kaku – that had opened its first location in Mass. back in April 2013. Gyu-Kaku is a chain restaurant with over 700 locations worldwide and features Japanese Barbecue cuisine. In short, it’s indoor grilling. Customers can order raw, specially-marinated a la carte items from the menu and cook the food themselves – a fun concept and dining experience. The staff are helpful and will explain the process and cook time to newcomers. Besides barbecue, there are also various cooked appetizers, rice and noodle dishes that you can order. I …

 

I’ll Have S’more of That

s’mores from whatscookingamerica.net
The smell of a campfire can instantly lift my mood, bringing back happy memories and warm feelings. Friends and family huddled around a fire telling stories and drinking hot spiced cider is one of the most comforting fall images I can think of. And it doesn’t get much better than snuggling on the couch in front of a log crackling and blazing in the fireplace.
And what would an open fire be without a s’more in hand?
So as we turn the corner to winter, with the first snow looming over our heads, there comes a gadget that will allow …

 

Halloween Peeps S’mores Bars

Marshmallow Peeps aren’t just eaten during the Easter holiday; they also make an appearance around this time of the year for Halloween. For anyone who has never heard of or tried a peeps before – they are brightly-colored, sugar-coated marshmallow candies that come in different shapes (i.e. chicks, bunnies, pumpkins, ghosts, etc.). They make perfect toppings on cakes, pies, and in a cup of hot chocolate. They’ve become quite popular too; the company has even opened a few retail stores.

I’ve found that most people either love peeps or hate them. I’m actually not a big fan myself, but I don’t mind the …

 

S’mores Cookies

With school already in session, halloween candy stocked on the shelves, and cooler mornings and nights creeping in, it sure feels like summer is coming to an end. This past Labor Day weekend, we had a cookout, which will probably be the last one for the year (at least at my house, that is). No more cookouts means no more toasting marshmallows over the grill to make s’mores treats. Of course, there’s always the microwave, but it’s never the same.
For those not familiar with what a s’mores concoction is: it’s a traditional snack/dessert (typically served at a cookout or campfire) that …

S’more Brownies Please!

So I have been exploring S’mores and somehow I stumbled upon a S’more Brownie recipe from the Food Network. Since I was making and trying different methods of making s’mores why not add one more to the mix at the same time!
The Recipe was easy to follow and my only mistake in making them was I use the roaster marshmallow which might have been a bit too big so I cut them in half and boy when under the broiler, they cooked much faster than the recipe even suggested!

S’mores The Finale!

So now that I know I still have to work on making the perfect marshmallow for my s’mores, the question turns to the chocolate. What chocolate do you use for your s’mores?
I use Hershey’s chocolate bars since it breaks so easy and fits so well on my graham cracker.  Should the chocolate be melted?  How melted should the chocolate be?  Does the warm marshmallow melt the chocolate enough? In my trials the marshmallows did not melt the chocolate enough for my taste.  I couldn’t really tell that the chocolate melted at all.  So, I put the finished s’more on a …
