the broiler: a winter cooks best friend

I love grill flavor. You know the one I’m talking about. Charred to perfection. Juicy center. Smokey notes, not too over-bearing, not too understated. I appreciate the art of the perfect grill taste. Unfortunately, a New England native, the grill isn’t always an option…ah hem, can you say snow? I am on the hunt for a great grill pan, suggestions welcome!, but until then, meet…my broiler. Here’s 5 ways this under appreciated kitchen gem will make your meal better tonight.

The broiler is an at-home pizza makers best friend!

I was so thrilled to try out my new gear that I went to a go-to recipe for dinner. Not only is it quick, simple, and a great way to feel summer-y in the polar vortex that’s coming our way, but it turns out it’s fairly photogenic! Check out my recipe for Lemony Shrimp and Orzo, including pictures a la Real Simple.
