Posted on Saturday March 03, 2018

The slow cooker is often the hero of weeknight dinner. And while the idea of coming home to a hot dinner five nights in a row sounds broadly appealing, the thought of having dinner every night from the slow cooker itself does not.

Luckily the slow cooker excels at bulk cooking. This week we're going to use the slow cooker to batch cook sweet potatoes and salsa chicken to use throughout the week. Do this and you won't have to cook anything on Sunday either. Here's how to have a week of easy dinners with help from the slow cooker.

Our 5 Favorite Baking Recipes for Weeknight Dinners — Recipes from The Kitchn
Posted on Saturday March 03, 2018

When we think of baking, most of us picture long, slow Sunday afternoons spent meticulously measuring, mixing, and making a masterpieces of cookies, cupcakes, and bread. But it's said that of any truth the opposite is also true, which means that time for baking can also be found in quick bursts and in between moments, even on a weeknight.

Weeknight baking isn't any less beautiful or satisfying than weekend baking — the process just looks different. But in the end you're still making something delicious to share.

Posted on Friday March 02, 2018

Welcome to a column from The Financial Diet, one of our very favorite sites, dedicated to money and everything it touches. One of the best ways to take charge of your financial life is through food and cooking.

After I graduated college and moved to New York City, buying most of my food out became my norm. I wasn't getting myself into astronomical debt, but I certainly wasn't budgeting. After paying off my credit card bill each month, I essentially had nothing left over.

Posted on Friday March 02, 2018

Homemade cinnamon rolls never seem like a project you can undertake in the morning and have ready in time for breakfast, right?

Posted on Friday March 02, 2018

I have a go-to recipe I affectionately call "third date scallops." It's a spin on my friend Neil's well-heralded recipe for "third date shrimp." The premise behind the recipe is this: Once you get to the third date with a new potential mate, one of you might offer to cook dinner. You don't want a meal that's too heavy or too involved, but you still need to impress. Seafood is good for this. A 90-second sear in a sizzling cast iron pan is all it takes to get perfect scallops, which you can plate with a bit of risotto and frilly greens.
