Ever since I was first introduced to roasted bone marrow, it has been a must-order appetizer — if I see it on the menu, my mind is almost unimpeachably made up — but until I tried my hand at cooking the trendy dish, I had no idea how easy, enticing, and accessible bone marrow can be to make at home.
To say that making this recipe was a revelation is a major understatement. Truly, the most challenging (and not terribly difficult at that) step is procuring the bones. I found mine at the butcher counter at Whole Foods, though this required calling slightly ahead of time to make certain they had enough in stock, and to ensure that the bones were cut to my specifications. If this buttery appetizer is up your alley, try your local butcher. All it takes is a short phone call to see if they can wrangle up a few pounds of bones to brighten your meal (and day). Trust me: it's worth the extra step.
Tired of making the same meatless dishes? EatSpinRunRepeat shows us how to mix in exotic ingredients for a vegan-friendly recipe.These wraps are a perfect lunch or light dinner, and if the only greens you tend to eat are spinach and romaine lettuce, collards are a fantastic way to diversify. I made mine with Thai ingredients including galangal, Thai basil, and a bird's eye chili, but I've included substitutions in case you can't find these ingredients.

How to freeze citrus zest: Zest the citrus before halving and juicing the fruit, and stockpile any extra in a freezer-safe resealable plastic bag. The zest will darken in color a bit, and mellow ever-so-slightly in flavor, but it can be substituted 1:1 for fresh. When it comes time to utilize the frozen zest, remove the amount you'll be using for the recipe, let it thaw (or add it directly the recipe), and stash the rest in the freezer for later. If you're a stickler for precision, portion out the zest before freezing — 1 teaspoon is a good place to start — and wrap each teaspoon of zest in bundles of plastic wrap and stow these in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag. After bagging the zest, write on the bag with a permanent marker the type of zest and portion size (if preportioning) for easy reference.
