Food & Wine's senior recipe developer, Grace Parisi, is a Test Kitchen superstar. In this series, she shares some of her favorite recipes to make right now.

Brining is—hands down—the best way to infuse poultry with loads of flavor. Especially something like Cornish hens, which can be pretty tasteless. I've given these bland little babies a huge boost with Asian flavors like ginger, star anise, kaffir lime leaves and dried chiles and left them to brine for 24 hours. So tender, so flavorful and so much fun to tear apart with your fingers and eat with sticky rice, lettuce leaves and sliced chiles. SEE RECIPE »

What’s black and pink with spots all over? It’s reality TV star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s brand new Wild Cherry Soda for a franchise called Rocket Fizz Soda Pop and Candy Shops on the West Coast. Specializing in oddball drinks (they're the ones behind Buffalo Wing soda, but also Apple Pie), the company wrapped Snooki's limited edition cane sugar-sweetened flavor in hot pink leopard print. It's the latest addition to the pregnant star’s mini-merchandising empire that includes slippers, perfume, bronzer and tanning lotion. Earlier this week, Snooki told Access Hollywood “I had a dream that [my son] came out and he was a gorgeous little baby, then he turned 2, and he turned into a Chucky doll and he was trying to kill me.” Maybe she should stick to water.
