A Simple, Anytime Tomato Jam You’ll Want to Eat on Everything
We’ve partnered with Muir Glen to celebrate the season with recipes, tips, and videos that make holiday entertaining easy, elegant, and totally stress-free. Here, we’re sharing our holiday party secret weapon: an endlessly versatile tomato jam.
Tomato jam is an A+ way to preserve summer tomatoes. The only catch is that you have to remember to preserve summer tomatoes. (And between you and me, I never do.) But instead of skipping out on making the bright and tangy condiment come sweater season, this year I’m making jam with Muir Glen canned tomatoes.

The Easy, Cheesy Casserole That’s Always on My Sunday Dinner Table
We’re partnering with Lagostina to celebrate the Italian Sunday dinner with stories, recipes, and videos about this special family tradition. Here, Tuscan food writer and photographer Giulia Scarpaleggia shares her mom’s potato gateau recipe, a Sunday dinner favorite.
Try as I might, Sunday afternoons are often the only moment when I can enjoy a walk along my favorite country road, under the enormous Tuscan oak trees I’ve known since I was a child. I relish these moments—a brisk walk in the crisp fall air always leaves me with reddened cheeks and a good appetite—but I love lazy Sunday afternoons indoors, too. I could spend hours on the sofa dreaming over a new cookbook, adding bookmarks to every recipe I want to try, or watching the last episode of my favorite TV series. For as much as I enjoy cooking and having friends over for dinner, Sunday afternoons are not meant for spending hours in the kitchen in between dirty pots and pans—they’re meant for relaxing.

Best Vegetarian Junk Food for Daring Plant Eaters
Believe it or not, vegetarians are not immune to the juicy tastes of junk food. To be perfectly honest, vegetarian junk food is not as “junk” as you might think. It still contains a bunch of healthy nutrients, even though the look, texture, and—in some cases—taste resemble classic junk foods. Vegetarian junk food options are almost endless. They range from famous restaurants’ takes on vegetarian and vegan junk food staples to simple junk food snack recipes. The following write-up showcases some of the best vegetarian junk food dishes. They are easy to prepare at home, so you can quench your vegetarian junk food craving. Vegetarian Junk Food Sandwiches In terms of the best vegetarian junk food, there is hardly a more palatable thing than a veggie junk food sandwich.

10 Easy, Comforting Halloween Recipes for Dinner Tonight
Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, which is basically a crime to kids and kids-at-heart who look forward to that one night to dress up and go trick-or-treating after work school.
I’ve always made the same mistake every year—both as an adult and as a kid—of not eating anything substantial before the night of debauchery. This can catch up to you pretty quickly. So, it helps to have a reliable savory recipe or two on hand—a Tupperware of warm and cozy stew, or some crispy chicken thighs with white rice, a grilled cheesy sandwich maybe—protein and carbs, essentially, to ensure that you’re fully fueled for the night ahead.

Christina Tosi’s Fall Pound Cake Has a Few Delicious Tricks Up Its Sleeve
I’ve always adored the innovative recipes of genius-pastry chef Christina Tosi—and I could live off of the chocolate malt cake truffles she sells at Milk Bar. But it wasn’t until she casually used the phrase “bundt it up” in reference to changing a cake’s shape that I entered full-on swoon mode.
Tosi, whose new book All About Cake comes out next week on Oct. 23, coined this phrase in response to my question about adapting the bake time for her Burnt Miso Pound Cake. This delightful cake is one of many insanely delicious creations in All About Cake. It caught my eye the moment I flipped through the book, and frankly, I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I tried a bite. (Okay, 25 bites.)
