Sassy recipes from rock stars
By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Mon Jan 28 2013 1:31 PM ]
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.

Make dead celebs’ dishes the life of your Oscar party
By Christie Chisholm
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
By Jessica Cassyle Carr [ Thu Aug 11 2011 3:09 PM ]
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!

The right way to work meat into your lettuce
By Ari LeVaux
Commercial salads these days seem designed for people who don't like salad. They're essentially meat entrées served on a bed of leaves, minus the baked potato. And if you watch a server removing plates from the table, you'll see they usually aren't empty. The cold cuts, cheese, croutons, shrimp and/or chicken are gone, but the greenery is left behind like an abandoned garnish. The very fact that the proteins and fat are presented on top, rather than mixed in, seems to ensure an errant leaf won’t be inadvertently consumed.

Eat This Book: At Home With The Range Café
By Laura Marrich
The Range Café began the same way the Alibi did—penniless in the autumn of 1992. (The Range has a month of seniority, opening on Sept. 2 to the Alibi’s Oct. 9.) After inflation, the Alibi is still basically penniless. The Range, meanwhile, has three locations worldwide. And it’s even gotten into the publishing business.
