You said you'd only watch one episode, but now you're halfway through the second season; after-work drinks turned into karaoke, which turned into more after-work drinks; counting sheep isn't quite as efficient as you hoped it'd be. There are a number of reasons to be awake at midnight—that tricky hour stuck halfway between dinner and breakfast. But fortunately for us—and serious cases of Chef's Table-inspired hangries—there's a little thing called the Midnight Snack.

Took a stab at some fruit by the foot last night since 1. Our berries were on their way out too quickly and 2. Our oven goes as low as 170. A success! Blackberry, strawberry, raspberry, water and a tiny bit honey, lemon and lemon zest.

Lots of egg yolks (leftover from macaron making session) - maybe 5 or 6 - plus a few whole eggs + cup of lemon juice + cup of sugar. Boil until 170, strain over pre made crust.

overhang. Bake 350 until golden. Swiss meringue on top + torch from Strosniders. Original recipe on SeriousEats, "Sunny Lemon Bars"

Cereal Treats! After spending 20 min discussing the best cereal to use, we determined it was Cinnamon Toast Crunch in place of Rice Krispies. Make as you would normally. Cereal, melted butter + marshmallows. Oh also, pinch of salt. Yum!

Fry up pancetta, Slice Brussels sprouts & garlic cloves, mix both with walnuts, olive oil & salt. Bake at 400 for 30 min, I like the Brussels nearly burnt and crispy! Drizzle balsamic on top.

Baked eggs: preheat oven to 350. Grease ramekin with olive oil and crack in one large egg. Top with chopped prosciutto, some leftover sautéed kale and a splash of heavy cream. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, minced chives and some crumbled goat cheese. Set on a baking tray and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, depending on how runny or set you like the yolk. Serve with crusty bread for dipping.

Simmer chicken broth with spices like star anise, cinnamon bark, bay leaf, peppercorns.
As an option, if you have dried mushrooms handy, reconstitute and add the mushroom broth for added flavor.
Season with soy sauce or tamari, mirin, and fish sauce. Remove whole spices.
Poach eggs and add frozen udon and tatsoi. You can use other greens you like.
Serve and enjoy.
