Melissa Clark, a James Beard award-winning writer, pens the wildly popular “A Good Appetite” column for the New York Times Dining section, as well as articles for magazines including Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, and Martha Stewart Living. Her twenty-ninth cookbook, In the Kitchen with A Good Appetite: 150 Recipes and Stories About the Food You Love, is - conveniently enough - out in stores today.
She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband, Daniel Gercke, and their young daughter Dahlia - but, for Clark, when the cat (or husband) is away, the mice shall play ... and eat whatever the heck they want.

This past weekend I went to the beach to eat.
I'm the only person I know who goes to a beach not for the sand and sun but for the food, but I'm good with that. As far as I'm concerned, sand is kind of icky. It gets everywhere - your hair, your ears, your socks - and it's usually too hot to walk on.
So, when I announced my intention to visit Brighton Beach to friends last week, I made sure to specify, I'm not going to the actual beach - I'm going for the Russian and Ukrainian food.
Competitive eating king Joey Chestnut was dethroned on Sunday at the National Buffalo Wing Festival in Buffalo, New York. The successor was 5-foot, 105-pound Sonya Thomas. She broke the national championship record by downing 181 fried chicken wings in 12 minutes - talk about poultry in motion.

Any way you squash it, Labor Day weekend has officially come and gone - marking the unofficial and symbolic end of summer. A moment of silence, please.
'Tis the season to fall into autumn flavors. Dedicate the first school bus ride of the year to National Acorn Squash Day. For a commemorative feast, simply cut the squash in half, remove the seeds, add a couple of tablespoons of butter, maple syrup and brown sugar, and bake in a 400-degree oven for about an hour (or until the squash is fork-tender). The bitter end of summer will suddenly seem a bit sweeter.
