In college I said — more than a couple of times — a first date should either include ribs or popcorn, because both are messy. Life is messy. Those two foods show a person’s true colors.
It’s hard to find anyone who doesn’t love a bowl of spaghetti topped with meatballs and marinara, but stovetop versions are often messy (between the spattering oil from frying the meatballs and the sputtering tomato sauce), and the sauce requires a long simmering time to develop rich, deep flavor.

Rolled in powdered sugar before baking, chocolate crinkle cookies (often called earthquakes) feature chocolaty fissures that break through the bright white surface during baking. While striking in appearance, these cookies often fall short on taste.

The spookiest day of the year is nearly here so don’t settle for subpar treats. Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party or just haunting the house, you can spice up your celebration with recipes featuring pecans.
Plastic is everywhere. You see it in everything from a Starbucks iced coffee to every grocery store shelf and checkout. It’s even in places that aren’t visible, like shampoo and toothpaste.
When you think of the use of plastic, it tends to be about large plastic containers or plastic bags. But the more you think about it, the more you realize plastic is everywhere. Each year, Americans dispose of 32 million tons of plastic waste.
Now that my kids are on their own and cooking for themselves, both have thanked me for passing on one technique in particular: how to cook a thin piece of protein and make a pan sauce from the drippings. It is indeed a quick, easy and affordable skill with endless variations.

I took my kids to the farmers market a few weeks back. On one wrist was a bag of produce and in the hand of that wrist was my toddler’s hand and I was feeding the sleepy baby with the other, trying to dig into my purse to find my wallet to pay the ice cream vendor for my toddler’s cone.
