Penne alla Vodka, Perfect Pesto, Broiled Zucchini, Sweet Corn Soup, Norwegian Lefse Flatbread, The Gold Rush & More — New Recipes from The Kitchn

What's for dinner tonight? May we suggest a few options from our lineup of new recipes from the past week? How about a saucy, garlicky dish of penne alla vodka? Also in the boozy range, what about a 30-minute supper of tender chicken and artichoke hearts in a fragrant wine sauce? If you prefer to drink your booze, then try our cocktail of the summer, The Gold Rush, a bourbon and honey sipper, or a two-ingredient smash hit with gin and Vinho Verde wine. If you want to keep it a bit lighter, try Julia Child's own pick: The Agnosoda. These recipes and more, including how to make perfect pesto every time, and a light yet satisfying dish of broiled zucchini with yogurt sauce.

Here's a quick look at what we experienced: More

What Can I Do With Bitter Peppers? — Good Questions

2012-08-17-PurplePeppersGQ.jpgQ: We went to a pick-your-own farm and came back with a bounty of small, fist-sized purple peppers. I'm not sure what to do with them, especially after cutting into one and finding it too bitter to eat. I'm hoping the whole batch doesn't taste similarly. What can I do with them?
