The Daily Meal first and foremost wishes everyone safe passage through the eye of the Frankenstorm, but on the off chance that you’re landlocked today with tons of misplaced pep in your step, here’s a food-themed mixtape dreamt up by the alias of DJ Escoffier. What lies within is a playlist meant to keep things nice and toasty, the result of crate-digging (all right, mp3-digging) and a modicum of experience with audio equipment combined with a zeal for all things edible. The tracks range in genre and tempo, including artists like Master P, Elvis Presley, and even Raffi and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. If that doesn’t make you want to get up and sauté, nothing will. Now who wants to party?

(Ed. note: given the nature of the storm, partying is clearly the last thing on everyone's minds. We hope that this may provide some small amount of comfort through music. Readers are encouraged to donate to the American Red Cross.)

Bonus: Listen for audio of President Obama cooking with Bobby Flay around the 7:40 mark. Track list below:

1. Carly Simon — Hot Cakes

2. MF Doom — Gumbo

3. Master P — Mr. Ice Cream Man

4. Raffi — Apples and Bananas

5. Frank Zappa — Call Any Vegetable

6. Elvis Presley — Ito Eats

7. King Curtis — Memphis Soul Stew

8. The Simpsons Sing the Blues — Springfield Soul Stew

9. Wendy Rene — Bar-B-Q

10. Amos Milburn — French Fried Potatoes and Ketchup

11. Ernie Andrews — Pork Chops & Mustard Greens

12. George Symonette — Don’t Touch Me Tomato

13. Charizma & Peanut Butter Wolf — Ice Cream Truck

14. Rupert Holmes — Lunch Hour

15. Carole King — Chicken Soup with Rice

16. Skee-Lo — The Burger Song

17. Madlib — Enter… Hot Curry

18. The Andrews Sisters — Hold Tight, Hold Tight (Want Some Seafood Mama)

19. Charizma & Peanut Butter Wolf — Apple Juice Break

20. Harry Belafonte — Coconut Woman

21. Violator Feat. Cee-Lo — Sexual Chocolate

22. Y.N. RichKids — Hot Cheetos and Takis

23. Dead Prez — Be Healthy

24. Immortal Technique — Beef and Broccoli

25. Goodie Mob – Soul Food

26. People Under The Stairs – Jamboree Pt 1

27. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson – Gimme Pizza


Buttered toast and jam

During this stressful time of social distancing, isolation, and virtual connections, many of us have seen our lives change radically. Parents suddenly have kids at home ALL DAY LONG. Those who’ve found daily joy in going to work are now working at home — or unhappily, not at all. And older folks, who loved the daily comfort of coffee with friends or the casual human touchpoints of post office, library, and grocery store, are suddenly living solitary lives.

Touched with loneliness (or at least the shock of a new day-to-day routine), many of us burrow deep to find a distant younger version of ourselves: the child who grew up thinking bears could talk, Mom could fix every boo-boo — and a grilled cheese sandwich was the best food in the world.

A plate of crisp toast, salty butter, and sweet strawberries, playing their song in perfect harmony, is the simplest answer I know to life's difficult challenges.

It’s no surprise food memories flood back when times are tough. Who doesn’t feel their stress lift in the presence of chocolate cake? Licking an ice cream cone leads to thoughts of a summer day at the beach, hot sun saturating your wet, salty, sandy self. Tomato soup and crackers? Sudden flash of a snowy winter day spent playing board games.

My most evocative food is simple enough: a slice of homemade toast with butter and jam.

But hold on — not just any toast: it has to be English Muffin Toasting Bread toast. Neither can I spread that toast with plain butter: these days, it’s richly flavored brown butter. And the jam? Fresh strawberry preserves from my own kitchen.

Happily, all three of these elements — bread, brown butter, and jam — are quick and simple to make. A pound of fresh strawberries becomes a delightful pot of jam in just about 20 minutes (most of that time spent simmering in your microwave). A stick of butter is magically transformed into glorious brown butter in, what — 10 minutes on the stovetop?

The bread does take longer: hey, it’s yeast, right? But for yeast bread it’s pretty darned fast: somewhere between 1 1/4 and 2 hours, depending on how long you dawdle over each step. Again, most of that time — the rising and baking — doesn’t demand any hands-on tending.

Over the course of a single day I can easily rustle up the bread and the jam and the brown butter. Mid-afternoon, when spirits and energy start to flag, is my favorite time for a toast break.

Put the jam into a little bowl, because why not make believe I’m in a British tea room? Make sure my brown butter is soft and spreadable — which it always is, given I leave it on the counter rather than in the fridge.

Brown butter melted on toast. A layer of fresh strawberry jam over all.

And for a few moments, at least, I forget COVID: the anxiety-ridden inconvenience it is for all of us, the tragedy for some. Crisp toast, salty butter, and sweet strawberries, playing their song in perfect harmony, are the simplest answer I know to life's difficult challenges.

Please remember: at the end of the day, we’re all in this together. And most of us will emerge intact, relieved — and thanks to all the time at home, with better baking skills!

What’s your jam? Tell us your favorite jelly flavor or recipe below!


Inspired by a style of cake from California’s Miette bakeries, we frost the top and middle layers of this stunner but leave the sides naked to showcase the almond cake. Don’t have a pastry bag or star tip to frost the layers? Fill a resealable plastic bag with the frosting, snip off a corner, and pipe away.

Before using the cherry cola, pour it into a bowl and allow it to stand at room temperature until no longer effervescent, about four hours. Start with a relish platter, then serve.

    Canning Time Is Almost Here!

    Spring is here with summer on its heels! Soon it will be one of my favorite culinary times of the year. My trees are beginning to flower with what will soon be fruit perfect for canning jams, jellies, and preserves.

    To get you ready for canning, I thought I’d gather and share four of my most popular recipes for these fruit-spread delights.

    Jams, Jellies, and Preserves: What’s the Difference?

    Many people ask what the difference is among these three types of fruit spreads. Here is a quick rundown.

    Jellies are mainly made from fruit juice and pectin with some sugar. They don’t typically have any solid fruit in them.

    One of my top posts and favorites is this No Fail Red Pepper Jelly Recipe. It’s perfect for making thumbprint cookies, serving over a block of cream cheese with crackers, or making into amazing sauce. Watch me make it here:

    Jams, on the other hand, are thicker than jelly. Jam starts with whole fruit cooked down to a sauce-like consistency — like this amazing Plum Jam made from seeded and crushed plums.

    Preserves are the thickest of all, with that lovely rustic texture that’s perfect for spreading on buttered bread. Preserves also use less pectin than jellies and jams. These Fig Preserves are so simple — no pectin at all — but so delicious.

    Canning Jams, Jellies, and Preserves: Don’t Be Afraid to Try It!

    Canning becomes second nature, and really almost addictive, once you begin making it a priority. It’s wonderful to be able to get on the of the cans out of the pantry any time of the year and taste something so fresh.

    Canning is a lot easier than people think! If you haven’t given it a try, here are a few simple recipes that need to become staples in your home. An added bonus is that they are perfect for gifts.

    Better yet, you can get all the information you need to know from my Preserving 101 Handbook. It’s packed full of tips for canning, freezing, and drying.


    Jam recipes

    The world of jam extends way beyond simple strawberry (although it's a very good place to start!). Too often dismissed as a pastime only WI members can enjoy, jam making is a fantastic way of preserving fruit which would otherwise go to waste (particularly seasonal gluts of garden-grown offerings) and, once you've mastered the basics, it offers a fantastic blank canvas for experimentation. Jam can be sweet or savoury, fruity or spicy, and can be slathered on burgers, stirred into porridge, sandwiched between cakes or simply spread across a good piece of toast.

    Learn how to make jam to suit every taste with our diverse collection of jam recipes. Karen Burns Booth's Easy raspberry jam recipe is a fantastic preserve for beginners to tackle, or try Adam Bennett's No-cook strawberry jam recipe if cooking with children (young helpers and boiling sugar don't mix well, after all). Karen's Apricot jam is handy to have in the cupboard for icing cakes as well as a tasty treat for toast, or give Ollie Moore's Bacon jam recipe for a wonderful (and unusual) barbecue condiment.
