How to Help Feed Kids in Need During School Closures

How to Help Feed Kids in Need During School Closures

School closures are challenging for anyone experiencing them during the pandemic. But for low-income families with food-insecure children, it can be more than one big, long inconvenience: It can be harmful.

Throughout a given school year, more than 30 million students participate in the National School Lunch Program, which provides free or reduced meals for children from low-income families,...

Tell Google Maps Your Dietary Preferences To Get More Customized Search Results

Tell Google Maps Your Dietary Preferences To Get More Customized Search Results

We all have food preferences of some kind. Maybe you’re a vegetarian or allergic to shellfish, or perhaps you just really don’t like pizza. When you’re using Google Maps to find food recommendations; however, by default, it will show you all the options out there, not just the ones you’re likely to want to eat. That is, unless you tell Google Maps what those preferences are.

Try Out New Kitchen Stuff Right After Moving

The worst part of every move is attempting to live like a normal person in the box-strewn liminal space between packed and unpacked . But, as it turns out, this annoying time has exactly one upside: it presents the perfect opportunity to invest in new-to-you cookware, because you’ll have no choice but to use it every day.

How to Reduce Your Food Delivery and Takeout Waste

How to Reduce Your Food Delivery and Takeout Waste

According to Grubhub’s annual “Year in Food” report, the food delivery platform averages more than 450,000 orders a day. Inexplicably, cauliflower pizza was also the single most ordered dish in 2019.

And we get it (the delivery part, at least—not the cauliflower pizza thing). When you’re tired or feeling lazy, nothing can compare to the exhilaration you feel when your doorbell rings and food...

Avoid Food Waste With an 'Eat This First' Shelf

Avoid Food Waste With an 'Eat This First' Shelf

If you find yourself buying more fresh produce than you actually eat, or letting your conscientiously-stored leftovers languish in the fridge before you finally dump them into the trash, it might be time to reorganize your food storage system and make the stuff you need to eat right away the easiest to access.

In other words: you need an “Eat This First” shelf.

I Am Begging You to Butter Your Hard-Boiled Eggs

I Am Begging You to Butter Your Hard-Boiled Eggs

Stumbling across an exciting new way to eat eggs can be the difference between making time for breakfast and skipping it entirely. I’ve gone through several egg phases in the last few years: easy poached eggs had a good run until I discovered cornstarch eggs, which were recently unseated by hard-boiled eggs with a twist.Melissa Clark told me to put butter on my eggs and she was right.

You Need a Pair of Kitchen Shoes

You Need a Pair of Kitchen Shoes

I have hilariously bad circulation in my extremities, which means that I wear thick socks and slippers 24/7 from October to May. This year, I got extremely cushy slippers for Christmas—and proceeded to immediately spill all kinds of bullshit on them while cooking dinner for my family. Tragic.

Luckily, none of the stains seem to be permanent, but the first thing I did when I got home was dig...

Don't Get Your Nutrition Information from Memes

Don't Get Your Nutrition Information from Memes

Do beans have as much protein as beef? Is drinking a Coke the same as eating a half dozen donuts? Are there really six slices of bread in every bagel? We’re gonna fact check some of those nutrition memes that are always floating around. Spoiler: if they’re shocking, they’re usually not true.

Don't Buy a New Stand Mixer Just Yet

Don't Buy a New Stand Mixer Just Yet

Every home baker wants a stand mixer , and they often go on sale just in time for holiday gift-giving. If you’re committed to buying one for yourself or someone you love this year, don’t default to the cheapest Kitchenaid on Amazon. Depending on your needs, a vintage mixer might actually be a better choice.

You Should Always Buy Bone-In Chicken Thighs

You Should Always Buy Bone-In Chicken Thighs

Everyone who eats chicken loves a boneless, skinless thigh. Juicy, tender, and well suited to everything from flash-frying to slow braising, they’re the perfect cut for just about any recipe. But all this is common knowledge by now, which means boneless thighs aren’t the budget-friendly hack they were even a few years ago.

This is why I’m a big fan of bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, which...

In a story for the New York Times, one traveler with a severe apple allergy shared her recent experience being denied boarding to her Emirates Airlines flight.

How to Obtain High-Heat Results in Your Non-Commercial Oven

How to Obtain High-Heat Results in Your Non-Commercial Oven

The difference between restaurant food and homemade is widest when extreme heat is required. Commercial ovens are designed to reach the high temperatures needed for blistered pizza and crusty artisan bread; home ovens just aren’t. But even if you’ve got an ancient, wimpy rental, clever rack positioning can trick your oven into acting hotter than it is.

Why the FDA Is Cracking Down on CBD

Why the FDA Is Cracking Down on CBD

From the proliferation of CBD stores and CBD-infused products, you’d think CBD is legal, either approved by the FDA or having found a happy little loophole in which the agency can’t touch it. But that’s not true, and the FDA sent a bunch of warning letters today to companies selling CBD products.

First, CBD can’t legally be in food, including pet food or animal feed, because it isn’t...

This Thanksgiving, Stop Food Shaming

Whatever your relationship with food is like, it probably intensifies around Thanksgiving. If you’re sticking to a special diet, you have to decide whether to keep it up or to say fuck it and take a day off to indulge. If your family’s eating habits annoy you, how fun! You’ll be watching them cook and eat all day. I’m going to suggest something radical: let’s just call a truce about all of...
