Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

During the post-holiday season I always want to eat a little lighter and ensure I'm really getting all of my vegetable servings in. But you know what? It's still cold and snowy, and comfort food also sounds amazing.

Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

The bakers of the world have really been raising the bar on pie crusts lately.

Instagram is full of pies that are so intricate and beautiful even Martha Stewart has to applaud them, and now bakers are even experimenting with bright, beautiful pie crusts in unexpected colors.

Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

There's nothing like the excitement of getting a care package. These special boxes full of surprise snacks and random treats were one of the best things about summer camp and college, and it's not fair that they tend to stop showing up once a person turns 30.

But now there's a new Oreo Cookie Subscription Box service you can get on Amazon, and it's basically like signing up to receive a care package of cookies every month.

What a Balanced Morning Looks Like for Fit Foodie Finds — My Healthy Morning
Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

Welcome to Kitchn's series My Healthy Morning, where we show you how one person greets the day in a way that makes them feel their best. Each post will chronicle how that person defines healthy for themselves, and the habits and recipes that make their morning a little bit better.

If you've ever felt like wellness bloggers can be a little prescriptive, then you need to meet Lee Hersh. She is the voice and founder behind Fit Foodie Finds, a lifestyle website dedicated to helping people make balanced choices when it comes to food and exercise. Hersh is open about her past struggles with disordered eating, and the dangers of being too obsessed or too extreme with one's diet. That's why nothing is off-limits to Hersh. She'll have oatmeal for breakfast and then drink beer with dinner. It works for her and it's incredibly refreshing to read about. Also, she takes really pretty photos. Like, really pretty.

We visited Hersh at her home in Minneapolis to get a peek into her morning routine and how she defines "healthy." Here's what she eats normally and what she does to work out.

We Talked to Geraldine DeRuiter About Going Viral, Rage, and Mario Batali's Cinnamon Rolls — Food News
Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

It was less than a week after Eater published its report on Mario Batali and his sexual misconduct that the chef wrote an "apology letter" to his fans and readers that ended with, none other than, a recipe for cinnamon rolls. Most of the reactions to this recipe addendum pointed to the obvious: that Batali and whoever was in charge of his newsletter didn't take these allegations seriously enough. Ending what should have been a heartfelt apology with a self-promotional recipe is in fact cause for (even more) outrage.

It was especially rich then when, a month later after this incident, blogger Geraldine DeRuiter of Everywhereist decided to actually make the cinnamon roll recipe that Batali linked to and write about that experience. DeRuiter's article blew up last week, and she says while most of the feedback has been positive, there were a few incidents — including her Twitter account being hacked — that were negative.

I talked to DeRuiter a little further about her piece, including the recipe she says promotes self-confidence, and that moment in her story when the cinnamon rolls, shall we say, popped.

Recipe: Ultimate Korean Short Ribs — Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinners
Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

When Seattle chef duo Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi debated what angle to take on their third restaurant, Trove, they couldn't ignore what their customers wanted: Korean barbecue. Per usual, though, they didn't want to make it strictly traditional — which is how Trove became known as the Korean-ish place where you take friends to grill lemongrass-smothered tri-tip, tamarind-tinged duck breast, or za'atar-crusted pork belly on a Korean-style tabletop grill.

In Yang's new book, My Rice Bowl: Korean Cooking Outside the Lines, the recipes in the barbecue section are a list of go-to grilling favorites (see also: grilled Cornish game hens with Korean mojo and orange-sesame salt). Still, both at Trove and in the book, there's one Korean favorite that can't be missed: kalbi.

9 Tiny Ways to Make Your Weeknight Dinner Feel Special — Tips from The Kitchn
Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

Weeknight dinners are my jam. I love gathering with my little family around the table and talking about our days. I also have a 6-year-old who is obsessed with eating out and at least once a week asks, "Can we have a [dinner] date out, please?" The answer is routinely no, but that doesn't mean I don't indulge her in making Wednesday night dinner feel special to cure her craving.

Thankfully it doesn't take a ton of effort to make weeknight dinners feel special. Some things are obvious, like actually using a tablecloth or wine glasses, but here are nine of my favorite ways to make a weeknight dinner feel special for every diner at your table.

Declutter Your Kitchen (in a Huge Way!) by Asking Yourself One Simple Question — Organizing Tips from Kitchn
Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

I recently moved to a new place, and most of my things came with me. The moving process gave me a much-needed opportunity to survey the things I own and decide if I wanted to keep them and bring them to the new place, or find a new home for them (which, yeah, includes the trash can in a few instances).

It was tough to decide what would stay and what would go, but one question helped me along the way.

The Seemingly Counterintuitive Thing That Actually Helps Me Stay on Budget — Shopping
Posted on Tuesday January 16, 2018

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a million times: It's best to plan your meals ahead of time and make large, infrequent trips to the grocery store, they say. The thinking is that you'll spend less time running around and you'll save money because you'll have fewer opportunities to make impulse buys and throw stuff you don't need into your cart.

Ignore that, I say!

It sounds counterintuitive, but I grocery shop every day in order to stay on budget.
