Bravo's Top Chef is undeniably the biggest food reality cooking show in America today. So how's it working out for stars of the show who aren't on Life After Top Chef? To find out, we tracked down some of the show's biggest stars at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. Chefs from seasons past, including everyone from Harold Dieterle to Ed Lee, weigh in on what's next for them, whether life's really changed since Top Chef, and what advice they have for chefs on the upcoming Top Chef: Seattle.
Just like the way we cook, we all take different approaches to organization, and arranging cookbooks is no different. Whether you have mountains of cookbooks or just a few favorites, here are some ideas for how to make the most out of those palatable pages.
- Don't be afraid to take them out of the kitchen. Instead of keeping all of your cookbooks in one place, prioritize. Try selecting ones that you will be using the most at any given time, depending on the season and the holiday, and have those handy in the kitchen. There's nothing wrong with placing the rest in a different bookshelf and rotating them out.
- Keep it stylish. For the cookbooks that do stay inside the kitchen, place them on a shelf or table alongside some of your cutest cooking tools, like a sugar bowl, for some culinary pizzazz. The more you notice your cookbooks, the more likely you are to use them.
- Know how you cook. When you get ready to make a dish, do you get inspiration from a certain author? A type of cuisine? Depending on your answer, organize along those themes: international, grilling, alphabetical, etc. If you want to take things one step further, you can then arrange by color or size.
How do you keep your cookbook collection in check?

When someone is generous enough to open up her home for entertaining, you probably fall back on an affordable bottle of wine as a hostess gift. But this holiday season, offer something more unexpected — like cork candles or a clever gift that doubles as wrapping — that any wine lover will appreciate. We've gathered 10 gifts under $10 that look like they cost more. At these prices, you might just be able to gift them a nice bottle of wine, too.
Lamenting the long wait till fresh pea season? Take a cue from Aimee3242 and whip up this minty pea dip using frozen peas, a favorite freezer-aisle staple.This pesto like dip/spread/appetizer literally came out of what I had in my freezer and pantry. We were hosting an impromptu wine Wednesday night and I didn't have time to go to the grocery store beforehand and it was just a small party, so I winged it. This dip was nutty and sweet with a little bit of heat from the red pepper flakes and it had a lovely green color. Perfect with pita chips, toasted bread, or crackers with some cheese.

Being a presidential candidate means a few things: little sleep, lots of handshakes, and on-the-go eating. For Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, it's not all about fast food, though there has been quite a bit of takeout on the campaign trail. Obama treats himself to sweets, and Romney makes his own peanut butter and honey sandwiches. On Election Day 2012, let's take a look back at what's fueled this year's presidential hopefuls.
Don't have fancy barbecue equipment but want to make authentic pulled pork? No problem! crccooks has you covered.Over the past couple of years, my affinity for making a more authentic version of pulled pork grew hungry . . . especially after attending the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party in NYC and having numerous conversations with some barbecue enthusiast friends. Purchasing a smoker really wasn’t in the cards, being that my now wife and I were saving big time for our wedding and I just obtained a super awesome gas grill. I needed to figure out how to smoke up some pork shoulders in an authentic way . . . on an inauthentic gas grill. The results were . . . well, you take a look.
