I heard about Aldi in snippets for years before I ever made my way there: It’s owned by the same people as Trader Joe’s (which is almost the case, but not quite), it’s filled with brands you’ve never heard of (mostly private label, similar to Trader Joes’), and if you’re going to buy anything there, […]

If you could create any Oreo cookie combination, what would be at the top of your list? I think my personal choices might be cannoli, apple-tini, banana bread, Boston cream pie, German chocolate cake, candied jalapeño, and a double-stuff made with thin cookies. Okay fine, it’s not a flavor, but it would save me considerable […]

The creamy toffee notes of homemade condensed milk set this recipe apart from the custardy, yolk-rich profile of traditional chocolate mousse. The result is a dark, silky smooth chocolate custard that lightens to a mousse-like texture with the addition of freshly whipped cream. If you like, the chocolate base can be made up to a […]

These days I’m ready to go to bed as soon as the kids go down — at 7:30! When I head back to the kitchen to finish up the dishes or work on the computer, it might as well be midnight, which makes it particularly hard to motivate myself to get anything done. And the […]

I’ve never met anyone who likes doing dishes. People who like doing laundry? Yes (my weirdo husband). Dishes? No, never. There’s just something about it: the back-breaking act of standing at the sink for a million minutes, the pruning of the fingertips, the boredom, the somehow not-so-soothing sound of running water. It’s just not fun. […]
As a kid, there were few things more exciting this time of year than the annual tradition of baking holiday cookies with my family. From pressing my fingers into dough to make thumbprint cookies and adding the chocolate kiss to the peanut butter blossoms, to decorating sugar cookies and even pouring the chocolate chips into […]
If there was a ranking of all the food that make me feel nostalgic, meatloaf would be up there. No, my parents never made meatloaf for dinner, but I did have it regularly at my middle school cafeteria in Minnesota. No burger or meatball will suffice when meatloaf is on the brain. The deeply savory […]

A salt-domed beef tenderloin is always the centerpiece of this meal. A roast of this size gives our family of four generous leftovers, but it would also be perfect for serving […]
Punny food videos aren’t anything new. We’ve probably all heard the jokes about cheese that isn’t yours (nacho cheese) and seen a tote or T-shirt with a pickle on it claiming to be a “big dill.” But this grocery store video takes things above and beyond anything I’ve ever seen before. Watch as the boyfriend […]

Food is about a lot more than just flavor and enjoyment. I love bacon cheeseburgers and milkshakes as much as anybody, but I can’t eat them all the time. What we put into our bodies has a huge effect on our health, performance, how we feel, and how long we live. So humanity is constantly […]

But nothing has been as head-scratching as the latest morning cup to take […]
The holidays have the oven working in overtime to achieve all the foods that are fit for celebrating — the roasts, the pies, and of course, the cookies. But while the roast definitely needs to be cooked in the oven, the cookies don’t have to. There are a number of great no-bake cookies and bars […]
