Krispy Kreme’s New St. Patrick’s Day Donuts Just Might Be Its Cutest Ones Yet

Krispy Kreme has had some adorable donuts of the year, especially for St. Patrick’s Day. Between the Oreo-filled option in 2020 and the unicorn design in 2021, the green holiday has had great donuts over the years. This might be the best one yet, however, because it’s about as festive as you can get. The new St. Patrick’s Day collection […]

Crunch Salad

To me salads are 90% about texture and more often than not, I want that texture to be crunchy. Whether it comes from a crispy lettuce such as iceberg, or the snap of a cucumber, I find salads infinitely more enjoyable when they have some bite. I created this salad as an homage to that crunch. Every ingredient has […]

Bagel And Lox

I have a thing for breakfast sandwiches (see my love story to the Bacon, Egg and Cheese) and as a Jew born in Queens, it’s hard not to get obsessive about a bagel and lox. Unlike many, I am not super opinionated or judgmental about toppings, spreads, etc.; The following recipe is simply the way I […]

You’ll Be Shocked When You See These Celebrities With No Makeup

In the celebrity world, makeup, grooming and Photoshop are a star’s best friend. In fact, it’s almost as if they are a necessity and understandably so. These can transform one’s appearance completely and make any celebrity’s face look completely different. In fact, they get very extensive makeup and touch-ups done to the extent of becoming […]

Rachel Roddy’s recipe for pumpkin caponata

That most long-lasting of vegetables makes a perfect autumn replacement for aubergine in the classic sweet’n’sour Sicilian dish. We found a pumpkin in the swimming pool car park one day last summer.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is one of our most popular fall desserts, and it’s not hard to see why. Adding pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice to the cookie dough results in a heavenly pillow-like cookie with major autumn vibes.

Thomasina Miers’ recipe for Mexican-style pizza with pea hummus

Tlayudas (pronounced clah-yoo-dahs) are Mexican-style pizzas cooked over charcoal grills, and are usually eaten late at night on the streets of Oaxaca. There, the dough is made with corn, but here I make my own simple wheat tortillas or, if I’m in a rush, use ready-made ones from the shops. Toasted in a frying pan, […]

The Best Drinks To Order At Any Bubble Tea Shop

Bubble tea. Boba. Pearl milk tea. You’ve heard it, you’ve seen it, and you’ve probably also had it at this point. The obsession and popularity, however, is nothing new. Before it became a major trend with new shops popping up everywhere, bubble tea actually originated in Taiwan in the 1980s and made its way over to the […]

Best-Ever Blackberry Jam

Whether you’re spreading it on toast or swirling it into your freshly made oatmeal,  this jam is sure to give your breakfast a major upgrade. Looking for ways to spruce up this simple jam? Try stirring a couple teaspoons of zest from your favorite citrus (we’re talking lemon, lime, grapefruit, etc.) after your jam has cooked for an extra boost […]

Reverse Sear Steak

When we cook steak, we’re looking primarily for two things: tender, juicy meat, and a flavorful seared crust. This reverse sear method ensures we can have both! The best part? It’s actually super easy. This method starts by roasting your steak at a low temperature in the oven. This allows the steak to cook slowly and evenly, similar to […]

Easy Key Lime Pie

This classic pie has the perfect amount of tang. We love the simplicity of a store-bought pie crust, but homemade works too (see recipe below). Make it for a summer cookout, birthday party, or just because. What’s so special about key limes?  Key limes are smaller, more aromatic, and more floral than regular limes. They’re […]

Thomasina Miers’ recipe for cherry kirsch filo tartlets

How to make the perfect vegan ‘fish’ (AKA tofish) – recipe

Smothered in batter and deep-fried, tofu makes a surprisingly good alternative to white fish for a vegan chippie experience at home I’m no tofu expert – in fact, I’d go so far as to describe myself as a reformed sceptic – but there are two things I do know about it: first, its creamy blandness […]

How to cook the perfect vegetable tagine – recipe

The idea of there being a single perfect formula for vegetable tagine is as absurd as there being just one way to make a good chicken casserole. A tagine is simply the name of the cooking pot in which the stews are traditionally made, rather than the name of a specific recipe (though these days, I’m assured, a […]

Nigel Slater’s recipes for sticky pork ribs, and chocolate-marmalade cakes

The marmalade-making season frustratingly collides with my annual sabbatical, the month when I pack my suitcase, jump on a plane and allow others to do the cooking. And it really is frustrating because I thoroughly enjoy the day or two that leads to a row of golden jars, glistening in various shades of amber on […]

Christmas snacks: Yotam Ottolenghi’s festive party-food recipes

You’ll probably have worked out that the grand feast is essentially a theatrical build-up. Festive drinks are followed by little teasers, a few bites to whet the appetite, but not too much: you need to leave room for the main act. Cheeseboards are, for me, a thing of the past, if only for the fact that […]

Thomasina Miers’ Christmas party recipes: paprika almonds and grapefruit mocktails

When it comes to throwing parties, the world falls into two quite distinct camps: those who love to do so, and those who would rather do almost anything else. Since Christmas has a mysterious way of conjuring up parties regardless, you may be looking at a fast approaching soirée with nervous excitement or abject terror. Getting organised early […]

Anna Jones’ 30-minute recipes

Almost every meal I cook these days comes in at under 30 minutes. A side effect of my impatience perhaps, but more likely it’s the reality of being one of a pair of working parents. Dinner is a quick, post-work family meal, or something cookable in the time it takes the other to do bathtime. […]

The truth about expired food: how best-before dates create a waste mountain

Would you eat a six-month-old yoghurt? This is a question you may have asked if you read the recent story about a US grocer and his year-long experiment eating expired food. It started in October 2016, when Scott Nash, founder of the Mom’s Organic Market chain of grocery stores, wanted to make a smoothie. He likes his […]

Rachel Roddy’s recipe for pizza rustica

Our rental agreement came with all the usual clauses, but also a verbal one: take care of the tortoise on the terrace. This unexpected role has brought me joy. I had no idea how fast a tortoise could move in the presence of watermelon, or that the movement would be a lolloping scamper. However, it […]

Tamal Ray’s recipe for a Mother’s Day lemon cake

My mum gave me a great gift: my love of food. I remember how her eyes would light up as she imagined the dishes she’d prepare for a family feast. I’d watch her tinkering at the stove, her face fixed with care and attention as she added a dash of this, a hint of that. […]

Joe Trivelli’s crunchy Italian recipes

There’s been a lot of old bread knocking about our place since my New Year’s resolution to bake a loaf of rye bread a week. Luckily, I find it hard not to put breadcrumbs – briciole in Italian – on everything anyhow. I love that crunch. Pasta – even pizza – with briciole… Salad, roast vegetables, whatever. […]

How to make sticky toffee pudding – recipe

Sticky toffee pudding: the very name is enough to gladden the heart, if not the waistband. This ‘British classic’, famous around the world thanks to a namecheck in Harry Potter, is actually a relatively recent invention, probably with Canadian origins, popularised by a Lake District hotel in the 1970s. Though unapologetically sweet, it’s surprisingly light – […]

How to make perfect spätzle noodles

Everyone loves a nice noodle, and these stubby egg twists from Swabia, on Germany’s south-western border, deserve to be better known here, if only our knowledge of the country’s cuisine didn’t start and end with the Black Forest gateau. Variations on the theme are eaten in neighbouring Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, eastern France and even the […]

How to make chocolate fondant

A Valentine’s classic: how could any heart fail to melt when presented with this gorgeously oozy chocolate pudding?

Nigel Slater’s sherry recipes

Standing in a bar in San Sebastián, mid-morning. An elderly woman comes in, puts down her shopping and orders a small glass of sherry and a pintxo or two, which she sips at leisure, then she picks up her shopping and leaves. I have never punctuated a shopping trip with 10 minutes on a bar […]

Nigel Slater’s warming winter soup and cake recipes

There is a glow from the oven door. The reassuring golden light that tells us someone has been cooking for us. The light that, however briefly, puts everything right. More than ever before I want to open the oven door and find my old crock pot full to the brim with beans and spices baking […]

This Lentil Soup Can’t Get Much Easier

Once I fell in love with a lentil soup, and it was all I could think about when pulses came to mind. Lemony and tangy, it was the antidote to the bleakest winter days, and the color of sunshine (from red lentils) to match its bright disposition. Eventually, though, the obsession waned, and I remembered how deeply satisfying […]

Taking Comfort in Couscous

This time of year, much of the bowl food that’s written about consists of virtuous whole grains and crisp vegetables, perfect to fuel those post-resolution workouts we’ve all been thinking about. But what’s to be said for another type of bowl food, the cozy, cheesy variety that doesn’t require too much effort in the way […]

The recipe I can’t live without

I’ve been making a soup like this pretty much all my life. I grew up on a farm and a lot of meals were prepared like this, plentiful and in advance. My mum sometimes put dishes on overnight, they’d cook very slowly all night and you’d wake up to the smell of it through the […]

How to make the perfect zabaglione – recipe

Though I won’t hear a word said against Christmas pudding, this “warm, wine-scented froth”, as Marcella Hazan beautifully describes zabaglione, is surely the ultimate festive dessert: rich yet light, easy to knock up at the last minute and, crucially, boozy enough to put everyone in a good mood. As Angela Hartnett warns, “don’t eat zabaglione and drive – it’s […]

Christmas tipples and nibbles

Drinking is different at Christmas. A little more plentiful, yes, but also a tad sweeter. In our house, bottles come out at this time of year that would normally never see the light of day. For every drink I pour, there has to be something to eat. It is a rule, a way of life. Thin […]

Why German bread is the best in the world

You’ve seen the French sauntering around with slender baguettes under their arms or sporting jaunty berets as they pedal bicycles laden with crusty bread. Those cinematic scenes are nice, but when you really get down to business — as my countrymen are inclined to do — it’s obvious that the world’s best bread comes from Germany. […]

Why is pizza so addictive?

A deliciously fresh pizza pie with warm baked dough, salty tomato sauce and gooey cheese is a delight for the senses.

Should you try ‘souping’?

When I first heard of “souping,” it brought me back to my clinical days working in a hospital, where pureed soups and other easy to digest foods — also known as “full liquids” — would be prescribed for patients recovering from gastrointestinal surgery, or those who had difficulty chewing or swallowing. Then I reflected upon […]

Trick and treat: how to eat leftover Halloween pumpkin

The downside of the annual carving frenzy is the thousands of tonnes of flesh that go to waste. But there are many scrumptious ways to eat it.
