Otherwise, if the "caramelization" is a dark brown with a few spots of black, then deglaze the pan instead! Despite its unattractive appearance, the layer of dried juices is called the "fond." In French, it means "base" or "foundation," and it acts as the base of many pan sauces. Even though it appears messy and unusable, it is actually condensed flavor and will add unbelievably delicious depth to whatever you are cooking, whether it's sauces, gravies, or bases for soups.

What happens when a sandwich lover like Between the Bread makes it to bread-baking mecca Tartine Bakery, tries multiple offerings on the menu, and shares her thoughts us with the rest of us? We'll tell you what happens: everyone gets very, very hungry.
I am slowly eating my way through the sandwich menu at Tartine Bakery. First, I made a Tartine sandwich recipe at home, and now I've had the real deal, times three. These are no dainty french sandwiches but rather two-handed handfuls, cut into thirds, each third the size of a normal sandwich half. Check out photos from my first visit as well as a recent return with my mom in the gallery below.
Click through her slideshow, then be sure to follow Between the Bread for more sandwich goodness. For a permanent seat at our foodie forum, get to work on your own OnSugar Blog. Your culinary takeaways could wind up featured here.
Greek yogurt: it's thick; it's creamy; it's rich without the calories or fat. These are just a few of the reasons why the Mediterranean staple has become so popular over the past several years and why it's also popping up everywhere in frozen form.
We had one question to ask, though: does the authentic, tart flavor and fluffy texture translate once frozen? To find out the answer, we sampled out 15 greek frozen yogurts to find the best flavors so that you don't make any less-than-delicious purchases.
To find out our overall thoughts on the greek frozen yogurt trend — and the surprising favorite of the bunch — keep reading.

Italian risotto is time-consuming, but PaprikaPinot shows it's worth it with a shrimp and vegetable risotto.While risotto is more work to prepare than basic rice, it is well worth the extra effort. This creamy and decadent grain is a sponge for flavors and the slow cooking process allows the essence of the added ingredients to be fully absorbed. This risotto dish includes a variety of colorful vegetables including red bell pepper, green peas, mushrooms and leeks. The shrimp were grilled separately, however, the shrimp shells were quickly boiled with garlic and water to make a broth for the risotto. This is a great Summertime meal!

- Make sure your grill is hot! When it comes to pizza crust, the higher the temperature of your grill, the more blistery and chewably crispy your pizza will be. If you don't have a thermometer on your grill, then check the heat using the "Mississippi" test: hold your hand three inches over the grill grates, and start counting, "One Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi," and so on. If you can only count to two or three before the force of the heat makes you pull back your hands, then you know you've got your grill at 600ºF or higher.
