Sassy recipes from rock stars

During its heyday, Sassy was my favorite magazine. The alt.fashion and lifestyle rag of choice for young ladies of late ’80s and early ’90s offered everything from interviews with musicians and actors to advice to product reviews to DIY projects (see the pillowcase dress) to beauty how-to articles (see the self-bang trim) to recipes from Sassy staffers and rock stars, like Mike D, Evan Dando and Sonic Youth. Check out three “Eat This” entries on carrot cake, hard sauce and tuna tacos below.

Bread of the Dead

and other Dia de los Muertos recipes

November 1st, the Day of the Dead, is nearly upon us, and that means marigolds, skeletal makeup and altars built to honor the deceased. But don’t forget the food!

It is traditional for celebrants to honor departed loved ones by cooking up their favorite meals and placing a portion on a memorial altar or even on the person’s grave itself, symbolically sharing the food with those who have passed on.

Over at the Fiery Foods Blog, Dave DeWitt, Patrick Holian and former Alibi food editor Gwyneth Doland have put together some Dia de los Muertos appropriate recipes for you to use in your celebration of the lives of those who are now gone. Enjoy!

Hollywood Helper

Make dead celebs’ dishes the life of your Oscar party

Liberace’s sticky buns. That’s Frank DeCaro’s favorite recipe in his freshly published Dead Celebrity Cookbook (HCI Books, $19.95), and the reason has nothing to do with taste—although DeCaro says the packaged crescent rolls doused in rum, butter and enough seasoning to spice a pumpkin pie are dangerously delicious. “It just kills me,” says the Sirius Radio talk show host and former “Daily Show” film critic, “but only if he’s in on the joke. If he’s not in on the joke, it’s just sad.”

How to make raw marinara sauce

Pretty, locally-grown tomatoes abound this time of year. These are fruits too majestic to insult by cooking. Last week I got my hands on orange tomatoes—the pinnacle of tomato deliciousness, in my opinion—and wanted to see how they’d fare if pulverized with spices and spread over fusilli. The results were so tasty I almost wept. Here’s how it works:

In a food processor—a blender would probably work too—combine tomatoes, a bit of garlic (beware ... too much easily overpowers the tomatoes), basil and/or parsley, a sprinkling of cayenne pepper, black pepper and salt to taste, and olive oil. (I recommend using a fine, organic, extra virgin variety—the difference in taste from cheapo options is substantial.) Pulse a few times then blend for 5 to 10 seconds. Pour room temperature sauce over the hot, cooked pasta of your choice. Garnish with parmesan— Parrano Robusto (available at Whole Foods) is very nice—and basil and/or parsley. Finito!
