5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

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.

Brighton Beach Foodoirs

Kira Kleaveland is an Associate Producer with AC360°

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.

Breakfast buffet

While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

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.

What's on TV?
