If your carved pumpkin starts to shrivel, you can revive it by giving it a bath in ice water for an hour or so (a cooler or bathtub both work fine for this). Before you start jabbing that poor gourd with a knife, watch this video from Kenji's Knife Skills series.
Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. If a few big bowls of guac and salsa aren't doing it for you, throw some chorizo-stuffed poblanos on the grill. From a hearty real-deal tortilla soup to super-easy pressure cooker chicken chile verde, you'll need a centerpiece to your Cinco de Mayo feast. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that a hot toddy from a mezcal bar plays with more spices than just classic clove and nutmeg.
This warm drink is a great use for mezcal, and the one Heugel uses, Mezcal Vago Elote, is particularly tasty.
About the author: Nick Guy is the accessories editor for iLounge, and covers barware and drinking accessories for The Sweethome. The piece delves into the ugly side of fundamentalism and covers female genital mutilation, physical violence that has worked its way into the legal code and the overall denial of fundamental rights in the Arab world. Eltahawy was also careful to state her view that many nations — including the United States — also mistreat women (or, at the least, do not treat them equally). Not a single Arab country ranks in the top 100 in the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, putting the region as a whole solidly at the planet’s rock bottom. And the aforementioned information is only a sliver of the examples and facts she provides in the article. Although compelling, the author’s claim of this “toxic mix of culture and religion” in the Middle East is being met with resistance from those who see the article as an overall simplification of the issue at hand.
And instead of acknowledging the pre-Islamic socioeconomic roots of patriarchy, she instead blames only religion, pandering to Islamophobia, according to Al-Monitor’s Samia Errazzouki. Critics say there are wide differences among the Arab countries that Eltahawy fails to take into account. Regardless of what critics say, the article does, indeed, shed light on an important and timely issue. Man Petitions for Restraining Order Against God Because ‘He Started to Treat Me Harshly.’ Here’s How the Judge Responded. Blaze Poll: Would You Have a Rice-Sized Chip Implanted to Avoid Carrying a Wallet, Credit Cards and Keys? But you may also know him as the founder of Slice (RIP, 2003–2014) where he has written thousands of blog posts about pizza. If you've really got it together, you'll be armed with a spoon, Sharpie, vaseline, and carving saws.


But we're not talking just any guacamole—we've got the best basic version avocados can make.
Frying aficionados will also swoon for a vegetarian take with fried avocado, topped with chipotle cream, cabbage, and pickled red onions. We talking classic milanesa-layered Pueblan cemitas and their New York counterparts, loaded with lettuce, tomato, and perfect refried beans. We've also got enchilada recipes galore: a pressure-cooker chicken version, a creamy chicken rendition, or even its vegan spinach and hominy cousin. At The Pastry War in Houston, Bobby Heugel brings together big flavors with smoky mezcal, herbal-anisey Green Chartreuse, spicy ginger beer, and mole bitters.
A little sweet agave nectar helps to tie it all altogether, and mole bitters give it a dry chocolate note. The smooth spirit has undertones of sweet citrus; it's infused with roasted sweet corn for a week and then distilled a third time, and though the corn flavor isn't necessarily obvious, the mezcal has a richness that helps support its smoky flavor. The article, which provides a lens into the lives of women who reside in Arab countries, reinforces much of what we already know about the challenges they face in the region. Eltahawy’s words do anything but hide the problematic mindset she believes has taken hold in the Middle East. So much so that 15 girls died in a school fire in Mecca in 2002, after “morality police” barred them from fleeing the burning building — and kept firefighters from rescuing them — because the girls were not wearing headscarves and cloaks required in public. Some even maintain that it reinforces negative stereotypes and provides a basis through which Western politicians can more readily rail against Arab society. Additionally, it provides many Middle Eastern women who live under the thumb of authoritarian rule a shining light and reassurance that their stories and their plight are making their way into the headlines. He also created A Hamburger Today and served as Serious Eats's founding editor (2006–2010) after having sold those sites to SE. Here in the US, it's also a day for eating awesome Mexican-style food and drinking delicious Mexican-inspired cocktails. Pulverized aromatics, unevenly mashed avocados for textural contrast, and an overall emphasis on simplicity are the cornerstones of this recipe. But that's not even counting variations studded with chorizo, mushrooms, and onions, seasoned with the best taco flavors, styled after Philly cheesesteaks, or full-on packed with, well pretty much everything. You can't go wrong with a big platter of mayo, chili powder, and cheese-slathered sweet corn (aka elotes). But let's not do disservice to the torta, whether stuffed with avocado, queso Oaxaca, black beans, and pickled jalapenos, chorizo, fried eggplant, or mushroom and spinach.
The cocktail will get you through one more snowstorm on its taste alone, but the thoughts of a Mexican sun certainly don't hurt. And while it's not a bubbly drink, the effervescence of the ginger beer gives the Remontel Toddy an extra kick and tingle on your tongue.


But some women — particularly feminist Muslims who would typically be praising the fact that these tragic details are being exposed — are criticizing the article’s writer, Egyptian-American Mona Eltahawy. Neighbors Saudi Arabia and Yemen, for instance, might be eons apart when it comes to GDP, but only four places separate them on the index, with the kingdom at 131 and Yemen coming in at 135 out of 135 countries. Resist cultural relativism and know that even in countries undergoing revolutions and uprisings, women will remain the cheapest bargaining chips. From nachos, guac, and salsa to enchiladas and chile verde, we've got all the recipes you need to complete your Cinco de Mayo feast.
But that's far from the end: dress it up with charred corn, black beans, and scallions, give it some heat in a chipotle and orange rendition, or go coastal with this Old Bay and crab-packed guac. Or whip out the fryer for some patacones (fried green plantains) to soak up some of the heat. Morocco, often touted for its “progressive” family law (a 2005 report by Western “experts” called it “an example for Muslim countries aiming to integrate into modern society”), ranks 129; according to Morocco’s Ministry of Justice, 41,098 girls under age 18 were married there in 2010.
You — the outside world — will be told that it’s our “culture” and “religion” to do X, Y, or Z to women. There was a time when being an Islamist was the most vulnerable political position in Egypt and Tunisia. Scroll through 'em all or jump straight to the section of your choice from the index below!
Most importantly, they're supremely delicious, whether we're talking ultimate, fully loaded nachos, their vegan counterpart, or this hot and spicy Texan rendition.
You can also give your salsa a Columbian twist with a tomato- and onion-packed aji, or go sweet 'n' tart with this version starring charred tomatillo and yellow pepper.
Go funky and tart with some slaw-like curtado or walk the sweeter side with a deconstructed take on elotes otherwise known as esquites—a garlicky, citrus-dressed corn and jalapeno salad you'll want to spoon on pretty much everything. The only concession to the horror was that girls’ education was quietly taken away by then-Crown Prince Abdullah from the Salafi zealots, who have nonetheless managed to retain their vise-like grip on the kingdom’s education system writ large. The Arab uprisings may have been sparked by an Arab man — Mohamed Bouazizi, the Tunisian street vendor who set himself on fire in desperation — but they will be finished by Arab women. Or switch things up with a bloody Mary inspired take, replete with punchy horseradish and an umami-packed dash of Worcestershire sauce. For something a little more smoky and earthy, we've got an ancho-chipotle salsa with chocolate and fried almonds, instead.
