If you're planning on watching the big game, you are going to need something, a lot of things, to snack on. Supporting your favorite team from the couch doesn't have to mean sad, over-sauced chicken wings or fluorescent cheese products (unless, of course, you're a Packers fan).

But there's no reason to toil over the stove and miss the first half of the game, either. So take back your (snack) game: Make a few or all 22 of these recipes before kickoff, and you'll be thanking yourself by halftime.

11 Ina Garten Recipes to Channel Your Inner Barefoot Contessa

When I'm feeling stressed or overwhelmed, there's a little trick I sometimes use that makes me relax in a near instant: turn on an episode of Barefoot Contessa starring Ina Garten, a cookbook author, lover of all things Paris, and of course, the Hamptons' very best host.

I'm not sure if it's the easy listening vibes of the show's opening theme song or Ina's serene, sprawling estate (that kitchen! those gardens!), but it's hard not to feel ultra-calm as you watch her effortlessly cook through a handful of recipes—whether she's setting up a laid-back lunch for company or preparing a special meal for none other than Jeffrey himself. (How easy was that, right?)

I’d like to give a shout-out to sheet pans. Because it’s amazing how the simplest, cheapest of tools can accomplish quick, delicious, and fuss-free (in the planning, prepping, and cleaning) meals the entire family adores.

But I hardly need to tell you this. Sheet-pan recipes are some of our most popular attractions (ahem, please refer to this list). There are the buttery, flakey slab pot pies, roast-y salads, a full American breakfast...I could keep going!

Our Most Popular Vegetarian Mains of All Time

I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest fan of New Year’s resolutions. At least, not the broad, sweeping type like, “become a perfect person” or “make my bed every day, all year.”

I'll admit, I'm not the biggest fan of New Year's resolutions. At least, not the broad, sweeping type like, "become a perfect person" or "make my bed every day, all year."

But I do love a certain sort: simple, manageable New Year's projects. Like, challenging myself to spend a full weekend alone, or learning how to master (fingers crossed) laminated pastry doughs (I'm addicted to kouign-amann). One I'm especially excited about this January is a week of vegetarianism. I'm looking forward to trying this primarily because as a recipe developer, I really appreciate dishes that build a mind-blowing amount of flavor with no meat at all.

My perfect morning starts with a cup of coffee, toast, and two soft-boiled eggs. There’s something so wonderful about the contrast of creamy, silky yolks and crispy sourdough (the coffee’s just there to wake me up).

Yes, eggs can do it all. Whether you’re a fan of crispy quiches, bite-size devils, or fluffy clouds, eggs are there for you, ready and waiting to fill you up from sunrise to sunset.

Today is International Woman’s Day, and the food industry, like most others, is rife with various -isms that can make it especially difficult for women to succeed. As a female-founded media company, we’re committed to covering the stories of women who’ve succeeded in the culinary world, past and present.

For some of these women, history has been unkind to their memory—only now is the world rediscovering what they gave us. Others are highly visible, with names you’ve probably heard, yet their stories, too, are more textured than often recounted. In the coming years, we’ll continue working to tell these stories. There are still so many waiting to be heard. But here are some.

It seems strange that there's only one day a year dedicated to celebrating moms—the women who taught us how to tie our shoes and blow our noses. They feed us, clothe us, and (when we're grown) share a drink with us to recall all the times they almost lost it while taking care of us.

Mom, it's time to return the favor: with a meal that shows just how much we appreciate you. We'll act like the responsible adults you raised us to be; we'll make a grocery list three days out, prep the sides the day before, and set the table that morning.

28 Recipes Starring the Ever Versatile Hard-Boiled Egg

The humble hard-boiled egg is already an ideal snack. Plucked from its bath after 10 minutes or so (do you leave the pot boiling or shut off the heat after it simmers? start from cold water or boiling?), you need not do much else. Sprinkle that creamy …

The humble hard-boiled egg is already an ideal snack. Plucked from its bath after 10 minutes or so (do you leave the pot boiling or shut off the heat after it simmers? start from cold water or boiling?), you need not do much else. Sprinkle that creamy yolk with a pinch of flaky salt and you’re good to go.

But there’s much more to be done with hard-boiled eggs, which are as much an individual ingredient as their raw counterparts. Once you consider hard-boiled eggs an ingredient rather than a dish, the possibilities are endless.
