We're about to turn orange. And no, it's not because we're nervous or embarrassed; it's not because we're stressed about planning that gigantic meal for next week. It's because we're eating way too many sweet potatoes, squashes, pumpkins, and carrots

It's time to get some green back in our lives; it's time to eat more brussels sprouts. And it's time to start thinking about the ones you'll serve on Thanksgiving. A basic Brussels sprouts recipe would likely call for arranging the greens on a sheet pan, sprouts cut side down, drizzling them with olive oil, and roasting them in the oven for 20 minutes to 30 minutes, or until they’re golden brown. Season the cooked Brussels sprouts with a little bit more salt and pepper, maybe some Parmesan cheese or red pepper flakes, and call it a day.

What's your favorite way to say "thank you" to your mom? Do you take her to get her nails done, treat her to a massage, or send her flowers? Do you order her favorite lunch, bake her cookies, then offer to do her laundry?

This Mother's Day, shower your mom (or any maternal figures in your life!) with gestures of your appreciation—starting in the morning with a good, old-fashioned breakfast in bed. Serve her whatever she likes best, be it , ricotta pancakes with maple syrup, or breakfast tacos, with a heaping mug of coffee or tea, of course. If you can't be with Mom this year, but live nearby, drop off a batch of warm scones or cinnamon rolls and a spring flower arrangement. And of course, many of the moms and motherly figures in our lives are further away, but you can still treat them to something special by mail (cookies are shippable, you know!)

Rhubarb is spring's biggest challenge and its best reward. On the heels of winter, its stalks emerge bitter and brittle, but no mind—with a bit of coaxing, it turns sweet and inviting, like spring.

Soon enough, we realize that its tough exterior is just a ruse. Feisty rhubarb loves a stiff cocktail just as much as a tart dessert and a savory main course. It's up for anything—because really, it's just as happy as you are that it's spring. To prove it, here are 12 rhubarb recipes to let loose with.

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).

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.

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.
