The first month of every years tends to unfold in a similar fashion. Resolutions are made, lifestyle changes (or tweaks) are set in motion, and time seems to pass somehow simultaneously at lightning speed and at a snail’s pace. However, we made it. It is officially February.

Let's face it: Whether you're a football fan or just at the party to hang around the snack table, game days can almost be like mini holidays. People crowd into one room, every nearby surface is overflowing with hors d'oeuvres or drinks placed on mismatched coasters and napkins, and you're quickly reminded of just how much seating you have in your home. The differentiating factor between a non-sports-related holiday and a game day is the sound of your go-to playlist is replaced by the sound of cheers (or groans, depending on who's winning) filling the rooms as the teams play.

Alright, I’ll admit it: I’ve never meal-prepped. I’ve thought about it, and I’ve planned to do it, but I’ve never successfully brought my scribbled-down list of weekly lunch and dinner recipes to life. Grocery shopping has always caused a certain level of panic to shoot through my body—maneuvering around a tiny, crowded, aisle with a cart or overflowing basket just to get a jar of peanut butter is my personal nightmare—so I tend to get in and out as quickly as humanly possible. The problem with this? It often leaves my cart filled with items I didn’t account for and missing ingredients I was counting on. And while that’s ok (I love a good challenge), it does thwart the prepping plans.

As we step into the new year, it's natural to take a look back at the past one. For me, that usually means going through photos I took or albums I listened to on repeat, while reminiscing about the year's trips, nights out with friends, and delicious meals. You know, essentially condensing the year into a mental movie reel.

This Cookware Set Lets You Bake Cheesecake…In a Microwave

I’m not a huge microwave person. This can be attributed, at least in part, to the fact that my microwave is really, really bad. It’s a tiny, cheap, and relatively low-power model, manufactured by a certain e-retail giant and taken from my sister’s coll…

I’m not a huge microwave person. This can be attributed, at least in part, to the fact that my microwave is really, really bad. It’s a tiny, cheap, and relatively low-power model, manufactured by a certain e-retail giant and taken from my sister’s college dorm room. Before that, I simply did without the (admittedly handy) appliance, reheating soups and stews on the stove, or just eating my leftovers cold from the fridge. Microwaves are notorious for their shortcomings—uneven cooking, variable cooking times across models, and lack of browning abilities, to name a few—but I wondered if there was a way to get more out of this much-maligned appliance.

Was there anything, anything at all, that could make me love my microwave? I tried Anyday’s line of microwave cookware to see if it could help me expand my relationship with the everyday appliance beyond just reheating leftovers. Could the microwave be a cooking tool in and of itself?

Back in March when Food52 released a one-off vintage Dansk drop, some of the most coveted items were the pitchers in cool teal, chili red, and even a rare kumquat. There were only five total, which means they sold out in a snap. But there’s good news for all those of you that didn’t get your hands on one. An archival reissue of the iconic pitcher is now available—and there are plenty to go around!

The Købenstyle pitcher, which was first unveiled in 1955, is often one of the first vintage Dansk pieces people reach for and get excited about because it is so iconically Dansk. “It's still sought-after in vintage shops and online, from eBay to 1stDibs, and when the Los Angeles County Museum of Art announced its upcoming show, Scandinavian Design and the United States, the Købenstyle pitcher was front and center,” says Christine Muhlke, Food52’s Dansk archivist.
