An American Delicacy

Dear Sally,

How was Easter with the family? I spent most of the weekend in Bradford with the Brickell clan and my parents were in Ottawa. Apparently my brother bought a house on Saturday so my parents went to help with the process.
On Sunday Jesse and I just needed some alone time away from all the bustle so we came
home to my place and made his favorite Ohio treat, Puppy Chow. I will warn you that this should probably be featured in the ‘This is Why You’re Fat” book but it is apparently delicious.
I can’t wait to see you on the 13th!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 box Crispix cereal
1 pound icing sugar
Melt butter, peanut butter and chocolate in a saucepan. Pour cereal into a large bowl and pour chocolate mixture over. Stir until all pieces are well covered. Divide into two large ziplock bags and pour 1 1/2 cups sugar into each. SHAKE! When all the pieces are covered with powdered sugar place the bags in the fridge to cool. Leave in the freezer and enjoy!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
