Citrus Salad

One of the best things about winter? It’s citrus season. I love having fresh oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and limes to bring a bright spot to the short, dark winter days. I tend to go a little citrus crazy at the grocery store–it all smells…

One of the best things about winter? It’s citrus season. I love having fresh oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and limes to bring a bright spot to the short, dark winter days. I tend to go a little citrus crazy at the grocery store–it all smells so good!–and then come home and think, “Wait, what was I…

11 Instant Pot Recipes Ready for the Super Bowl

Despite how strange the last year was, some things never change—and the Super Bowl is one constant. It may look a little different in 2021, but if you’re anything like me, you were mostly in it for the food anyways (and you don’t need a crowd to make a…

Despite how strange the last year was, some things never change—and the Super Bowl is one constant. It may look a little different in 2021, but if you’re anything like me, you were mostly in it for the food anyways (and you don’t need a crowd to make a giant batch of mac and cheese). It’s also the perfect time to break out some of the cooking gadgets you were gifted over the holidays: Fill those air fryers with chicken wings, break in your Dutch ovens with a huge pot of chili, and of course, plug in the real star of Super Bowl Sunday when it comes to kitchen tools, the Instant Pot.

This game day, use your Instant Pot to cook everything from classic chili and wings to dessert(!). Whether you’re cooking for the whole house or throwing a party for one, here are 11 Super Bowl Instant Pot recipes that’ll take your taste buds to the end zone.

How We Ate Through a Most-Unusual Year

In the 19th century, a French philosopher named Henri Bergson proposed a new way to think about time: la durée, or the subjective perception of time, as opposed to the objective definition measured by clocks (or today, smartphones). La durée explains w…

In the 19th century, a French philosopher named Henri Bergson proposed a new way to think about time: la durée, or the subjective perception of time, as opposed to the objective definition measured by clocks (or today, smartphones). La durée explains why 10 minutes spent chatting with a friend fly by, but while waiting for water to boil, those same 10 minutes pass painfully slow—particularly when hungry.

In a year marked by historical events—civil rights protests, nail biters of elections, and a global pandemic—there were periods that seemed to stretch like well-kneaded dough. (That is, for the homebound and so-called non-essential workers.) The purpose of this story is to try to pin down how “we” (an admittedly slippery term) cooked and how we ate, based on observations of the food media-sphere and some year-end numbers, in the hopes of finding commonalities in our experience; and to document what we brought to the table during these extraordinary times.

Almond Butter Cookies

This almond butter cookies recipe was a happy accident. The first time I made it, I had one of my I-need-a-cookie-and-I-need-it-now cravings, and I headed to the kitchen to see what I could do about it. I found all the ingredients to my peanut butter cookie recipe – sugar, flour, baking powder, you know the drill. All the ingredients, that is, except for one: peanut butter! Would almond butter work in its place? YES! As soon as I tried these cookies, I wondered, “Why haven’t I been making almond butter cookies all along?” They have crumbly edges, thick, tender middles, […]

Why My Favorite NYE Tradition Revolves Around the Coffee Table

I absolutely adore getting to know other families’ quirky holiday traditions, how they came to be, and how they’ve clung to them throughout the years.

I absolutely adore getting to know other families’ quirky holiday traditions, how they came to be, and how they’ve clung to them throughout the years.

Some can be objectively inconsequential, but they stick, because of the little memories trapped inside the motions. Even if the sequels lose the thrill of the original, we find ourselves in a cycle of repetition because we’re chasing that nostalgia high.

We teamed up with LG Studio to share the holiday-ready drink we’ll be sipping throughout the season: Puerto Rican coquito. Creamy and dreamy, this classic Christmas beverage stars rum, condensed milk, and of course, coconut. For added presentation points, serve it with a sphere of Craft Ice™ from the LG Studio InstaView refrigerator, along with a sprinkle of grated cinnamon.


Having been born and raised in South Florida, a frosty, snow-filled Christmas was never really in the books for me. Swap out crackling fireplaces and sledding for breezy palm trees, not to mention tons of humidity, and you’ve got yourself a Miami winter. So it’s not changing leaves or chilly temps that mark the beginning of a typical holiday season in my mind—it’s the parties.
