My favorite desserts star any derivative of whipped egg whites, be it meringue, soufflé, or marshmallows, so when I saw this savory recipe for “egg clouds” from The Perfect Egg by Teri Lyn Fisher and Jenny Park, I scrambled to make it. The concept is simple: beat egg whites until stiff, then form them into […]
Many home cooks tend to rely on yogurt, tahini, and mayo to add creaminess to salad dressings, but consider this fresh alternative: avocado. Though it sounds strange, blended avocado adds a hefty body (and yet neutral flavor) to just about anything you throw in your blender – from salad dressing to ice “cream” to green […]
Even if you already think you know how to roast potatoes, listen up, because I’d wager that this easy method blows your tried and true out of the water. With two small but significant tweaks, this dinnertime staple goes from good to simply smashing.
Cinnamon rolls are a prized breakfast possession in America, yet few families will attempt to make them from home. It’s understandable why. Who wants to wake up before the crack of dawn to let dough rise for several hours? Ahem, well maybe me, but I’m in the vast minority. Luckily, I’ve included instructions to prep […]

Raise your hand if you’re sick of packing your lunch only to find yourself raiding your office’s chips and candy stash by three in the afternoon. These recipes, ranging from a hearty soba noodle salad to a food-coma-free creamy broccoli soup (the secret: Greek yogurt), will solve your problem, and they’re all vegetarian to boot.
Say hello to my go-to dish for feeding a crowd: sesame-ginger soba noodle salad. Vibrantly flavored, full of crisp vegetables, and best served at room temperature, this noodle dish is perfectly tailored for potlucks and casual dinner parties, and will even shine as leftovers the next day (provided there’s some left). The best part: the […]

I suppose I’ve rationalized my bread-baking evasion by telling myself it takes too long and my spaghetti-noodle arms can’t knead well enough. But I […]
