Learning how to shred chicken is like following a map, because like all meat, chicken forms a noticeable grain as it cooks. Separating chicken along that grain results in juicy, tender shreds that are both handy for reducing prep time and incredibly versatile. A container of shredded chicken is as at home in your favorite chicken salad recipe as it is in tacos, soups, casseroles, pasta dishes, and anything else that needs a boost of protein and flavor.

Using little more than your hands—or two forks—you can easily take down a pile of leftover chicken (or chicken you made specially for shredding) and stash it away in the refrigerator for a speedy weekday lunch or simple but hearty dinner.

When it comes to Thanksgiving table hierarchies, for me, stuffing sits securely at the top. Whether you call it stuffing or dressing; make it from cornbread, hand-torn white bread, or the pre-hardened croutons from a bag, I will love it. And when it co…

How to Use Up the Rest of a Can of Sweetened Condensed Milk

My mornings these days start off with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a scoop of thick sweetened condensed milk. I skip the cream and sugar all together, since sweetened condensed milk—milk that's been concentrated and heavily sweetened; its viscosity is like molasses or honey and it moves just as slowly—gives creaminess and sweetness in one product.

My mother always had a can in the pantry at any given time. It was a staple in our home. We baked with it, sweetened Jamaican cornmeal porridge with it, and my mother used it in her tea. Once I've opened a can, I store the remaining milk (poured out of the can) in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. (And if you want to met it yourself, Stephanie Le has a simple recipe for making a batch of sweetened condensed milk of your own.)

It's the end of the long workday (or the start of an extra-long week) and we're hungry. Like, "can't-think-straight" hungry. Luckily, Food52 contributor EmilyC wants to do all the thinking for us. In Dinner's Ready, her monthly column on weeknight wonders, she shares three simple, flavor-packed recipes that are connected by a single idea or ingredient. Stick with Emily, and you'll have a good dinner on the table in no time. Today, three hearty, make-ahead salads to eat on the porch, in the park, anywhere.


If you’re like me, you’ve found yourself in a cooking rut at least once, if not a hundred times over, during this pandemic. I often find that my best laid dinner plans vaporize at the end of a long work day, when all I want to do is get outside and remind myself that it’s August (not March!). Even take-out—an exciting treat at first—has lost its allure.

16 Creative Ways to Use Leftover Cornbread (Other Than Stuffing)

Cornbread, warm, right out of the oven: It's something we find ourselves eagerly cutting off squares of and eating straight from the pan, with a knifeful of soft butter for slathering onto each bite. It goes wonderfully with summer BBQs and Thanksgiving dinners alike. But no matter what time of year we make it, it all too soon it becomes a very different, much less joyous affair—bordering on tasteless, dry, and crumbly. What a shame.

Last Thursday I shared my Lemony Asparagus Risotto recipe with you and I promised that there was a part two coming soon. Well, guess what? It’s time for Lemony Asparagus Risotto Part 2: The Reckoning. (That sounds more ominous and vaguely threatening than delicious, huh?) Every risotto recipe I’ve ever made yielded a lot of risotto. A lot. Since it’s just my husband and me in our household, that means there’s always leftovers. But leftover risotto is kind of an abomination. It’s never as creamy as the first day you make it and it’s just kind of off and disappointing and even a little bit depressing. So here’s what you need to do when you have leftover risotto: you need to make baked arancini. Traditionally, arancini is fried in a skillet or deep-fryer. But risotto is a little on the heavy side, so adding even more fat from frying isn’t the best idea. Arancini is often stuffed with cheese too, but I’ve omitted this as well. That doesn’t mean this baked arancini is healthy, but it’s a little more virtuous than its deep-fried, cheese-stuffed counterpart. Done correctly, baked arancini has the same crunchy exterior and creamy interior as the fried […]

The Best Way to Reheat Pizza at Home, According to the Pros

So you’ve managed—by some divine grace—not to finish your entire pizza. That alone is accomplishment enough, and you should be proud of your noble restraint. You know what they say: Good things come to those that wait. See, there …

So you've managed—by some divine grace—not to finish your entire pizza. That alone is accomplishment enough, and you should be proud of your noble restraint. You know what they say: Good things come to those that wait. See, there have been studies that prove it. The good thing coming to you? The ultimate leftover pizza lunch.

What has not been studied enough, however, is the best way to reheat these glorious leftovers. The microwave, technical marvel that it is, will render your slice a soggy mess, with a crust that's way too hot and mushy. (Really, if you're going to burn your mouth on anything, it should be the cheese.) The oven, while it restores that crispness that made you fall in love at first bite, will also dry out your cheese and toppings. No amount of crunchy base is going to make up for that failure.
