The Ultimate Starch Madness
 

You know what I take just as seriously as my bracket? My BREAD! If I’m craving a heavy dose of carbs, there’s nothing quite like tearing into a freshly baked loaf of challah. I don’t have the answers for how to win your March Madness bracket, but I do know that this hearty loaf of challah is a surefire winner. You know what else is a surefire winner? The Tar Heels, but I digress...

Sweet Potato Fries with Garlic Lime Tahini by
@chocolateforbasil


My life motto? Fries before guys, even if those guys are masters on the court. I’ve only got eyes for sweet potato fries. Bright orange crispy outsides and soft insides. Hubba hubba! They’re the perfect vehicle for more tahini than my roommates thought possible. Sit me down with a bowl full of these babies and you can call me this year’s winner. -- Sara Linder, Editorial Assistant

Smoky Spaghetti and Meatballs by

I may not know anything about basketball, but I do know that there is nothing more comforting than a big ol’ bowl of spaghetti and meatballs!  I’d watch paint dry with a bowl of @jakecohen’s recipe in hand! -- Molly Adams, Senior Food Editor
 
 
 

Lobster and Tarragon Risotto by @mollyjean4
 

The rice is right in this risotto!! I’m so into the magic of a cream pot of short grain rice, so you can imagine how decadent things get when you throw in lobster meat and homemade lobster stock. It’s a date night staple in my house and it couldn’t be any more fulfilling to make! -- Jake Cohen, Editorial Director
