This warm, creamy, dairy-laden starch might be more of an indulgence than everyday fare these days, but even if you only have them once a year (Thanksgiving!), we say go all out and do it right. This recipe will walk you through what the best potatoes for mashing are, dairy additions, and mashing methods.

The best part? They’re easy to make and quick to assemble. They’ll be welcome on any Thanksgiving dinner table — or any holiday. Here’s how to make them.

But then sometimes a voice of authority steps in, giving us the kind of definitive response that riles up the internet and gets everybody all shouty about their own thoughts. No, nobody’s declared their thoughts on whether a hot dog is a sandwich again, or got back to argu

I put it in a resealable container, but inevitably forget about it in my fridge cemetery (the top shelf). Well, not this week. To help you use up the full can once and for all, we’re rounding up some great recipes with coconut milk. Some call for just a few tablespoons or maybe a half-cup to help you make use of what’s left over, while some put the

But this specific rendition has another big benefit: It’s a complete meal, all in one. Here, protein-packed shrimp and white beans mingle with nutrient-dense kale in a bright, lemony pasta dish that’s ready in just 20 minutes.In addition to adding protein, the beans break down a bit as they cook, lending a delightful creaminess to the pasta

Unlike other chocolate-y desserts, brownies offer sweetness and intense chocolate richness, but also have a nice array of textures. I love how the crunchy top gives way to a soft middle; bonus points if I snag a chewy corner piece. It’s also an easy treat to throw together when the craving for a baked good or chocolate hits, and I rarely see adults or k

It’s fall baking season, baby! I might still have my AC running in my Los Angeles apartment for the next couple of months, but that won’t stop me from also turning on my oven. The only question to be answered now is what to make. And I have just the thing. This recipe for brown butter maple blondies
Credit: Jason Rampe Credit: Jason RampeAt the beginning of quarantine, lots of us (myself included) were forced to figure out how to do our jobs from our homes. For many, that meant finding a comfy chair-and-desk combo. Maybe getting a better task light or improving a super-slow internet connection. For me, life at home meant figuring out how to make my kitchen more functional. See, as a food editor, my job includes cooking, writing, and styling recipes. And in mid-March, I realized that, with m

Having 10 or more meals ready to go in the freezer makes such a huge difference in our familys weeks. I can build in nights off from cooking while keeping expenses low and not blowing our takeout budget on a night when we just dont feel like making dinner.Even when I havent set aside a Saturday to stock our freezer with meals, I do ma

The customer reviews (which I read retrospectively, because Patrics input is more than enough to convince me) confirmed that, yes: I needed this product in my life. And you do too.Amodex is trusted to remove ink and even permanent marker like Sharpie, and it w
(Image credit: Joe Lingeman)While there are pros and cons to both gas and electric stovetops, theres one thing you can feel good about regardless of which cooktop youre using: cooking with cast iron. Yes, its true electric stovetops (even ones with glass tops!) can handle the trendy, trusty, and yes, very heavy, cookware, both regular and enameled. We understand the fear: Youve spent money on a shiny new glass-top stove (or are renting a space that has one), and youre hesitant to use cast iron f
