A 5-Minute Steak Dinner for One—for Those Nights When You Just Can't

A 5-Minute Steak Dinner for One—for Those Nights When You Just Can’t

What can you do in five minutes? If you’re as elegant, as dexterous as I am, then you can probably: pick your nose in five minutes; trip over that gargantuan pile of dirty laundry and lie on the floor, immobile, for five minutes; let your dog lick your face for five minutes.

You can probably cook a steak dinner for one in five minutes.

The One Recipe Instruction I'll Never, Ever Follow

The One Recipe Instruction I’ll Never, Ever Follow

I’m a full-time recipe developer, so admittedly, I don’t get to make other people’s recipes as often as I’d like these days. But when I do, I have a vested interest in maximum deliciousness. Which means following any prescribed instructions to a T the first time I make it—all in pursuit of promised crinkly tops, or jammy textures, or the gooiest of cookie centers. I’ll read through a new recipe several times before commencing, and adhere to its directives with drill sergeant-like accuracy.

There is, however, one marked exception: sifting. I have so many memories of being a child in the kitchen asking to help with something or another, and being handed the sifter. Which, in our household, was one of those deceptively charming old-fashioned metal ones. Not the kind with a friendly crank on the side, though—it had a vertical handle like that of a giant coffee mug, fitted with a lever that you’d have to squeeze inward over and over again, like you were firing off a staple gun, to get ingredients to pass through a sieve layer.

Our 6 Favorite Places to Pick Apples & Pumpkins Around NYC

Our 6 Favorite Places to Pick Apples & Pumpkins Around NYC

Growing up in Louisiana, I thought pumpkin picking meant driving to a plant nursery, walking through piles of orange gourds, then pointing out which one my dad would heave into our van. And apples? Those just came from the grocery store.

It wasn’t until I moved to Pennsylvania at 22—where my roommate dragged me to a local farm to fill bags with green and red fruit, wander through a twisty corn maze, and pick pumpkins off a vine—that I felt like I had truly experienced fall.

12 Hearty Meatless Mains *Everyone* at the Table Can Tuck Into This Fall

But, honestly, we need to stop sleeping on fall veg.

9 Smart Kitchen Products That'll Do Half the Work for You This Holiday Season

9 Smart Kitchen Products That’ll Do Half the Work for You This Holiday Season

Look, I don’t exactly mind running point in the kitchen during the holiday season. In fact, if it gives me an excuse to make an extra batch of gingersnap cookies that nobody exactly asked for, or the creative license to spatchcock our bird, I’m all for it. (What are you still doing in the kitchen, dad? I told you, I’ve got this.)

With that said, there are definitely a few jobs I wouldn’t mind delegating. I don’t mean garlic mincing—I’m of the odd-duck camp who loves when her hands smell like garlic. (What?! It’s cozy.) But all of the memory work around which batch of mashed potatoes are leftover from which meal? Or whether that basil was purchased last week, or last month? I’m happy to hand off the baton there.

Meghan Markle’s New Cookbook Tells the Story of How Cooking Can Heal

Meghan Markle’s New Cookbook Tells the Story of How Cooking Can Heal

Last month, the Duchess of Sussex made her debut as a cookbook author. Well, a cookbook-foreword author. Meghan Markle spearheaded the production of (and wrote the introduction to) Together: Our Community Cookbook, a compilation of recipes from women who began cooking together at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre after the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire displaced them.

When Markle began visiting the group of women at Al Manaar in the wake of the devastating fire, she learned that they lacked the funding to use the kitchen more than twice a week. They tell the story here:

This Grilled Cheese Can Be Made 32,256 Ways—Here Are 3 of Our Favorites

This Grilled Cheese Can Be Made 32,256 Ways—Here Are 3 of Our Favorites

Grilled cheese. Pretty basic, right? Crusty bread, melty cheese, (lots of) butter, maybe some mayo or hot sauce. Glorious, though it can sometimes feel a little same ol’, same ol’. But maybe it doesn’t have to. Maybe you have a few nubs of cheese in your fridge that you wouldn’t normally combine. Maybe you have some jam or fruit preserves on hand, or membrillo, or pesto. And maybe there’s some salami or cooked bacon or leftover braised greens in your midst. Yep, you can and should put these—and really, whatever else calls out to you—in your grilled cheese, and you’ll thank yourself for it. With some inspiration from these pantry staples, and bit of guidance on how to put it all together, your (and definitely my) go-to comfort food can benefit from a little mosey on the wild side.

Cue Cook in the Blank, our new playbook for easy weeknight dinners that comes out on 10/30. It lets you endlessly riff on tried-and-true standbys—burgers, baked pasta, chili, frittatas, and yes, grilled cheese, to name a few—with the help of a fill-in-the-blank recipe template. You can use whatever’s in your fridge or pantry, poll your family and friends for ideas, or check out the “hints and winks” on the back of the recipe to guide you. You’ll find three copies of each recipe that you can tear out, so make each dish a few times to find your favorite combinations, or pass them along to the other grilled-cheese lovers in your life.

Brown-Sugared Apples & Cream Is the Easiest Dessert to Make Right Now

Brown-Sugared Apples & Cream Is the Easiest Dessert to Make Right Now

A Big Little Recipe has the smallest-possible ingredient list and big, BIG everything else: flavor, ideas, holy-cow factor. Psst: We don’t count water, salt, pepper, and certain fats (say, olive oil to dress greens or sauté onions), since we’re guessing you have those covered. Today, we’re making the easiest apple dessert in town.

When I was little, I loved helping my grandma make apple pie. I’d down Juicy Juice as I watched her turn on the oven, measure ingredients, flour the countertop. She always gave me the best tasks, like eating dough scraps and extra fruit filling, then rewarding my efforts with ketchupy spaghetti for lunch. In retrospect, this all sounds like a recipe for a sick kid.

Smart Tips for Antiquing Like a Pro, Straight from an Interior Designer

We’ve partnered with Benjamin Moore to share design tips, tricks, and videos that highlight contemporary ways to incorporate vintage and antique finds into your home. One of our favorite ways to update newfound treasures snagged at the market: Give them a fresh coat of paint using one of the timeless colors from Benjamin Moore’s Williamsburg Collection .

Few things can add character or history to a space like a one-of-a-kind piece from decades past. But navigating an antique market can be tricky, whether it’s a huge show like Brimfield or your local weekend flea market. So we turned to Megan Pflug, a New York-based interior designer, for a bit of guidance. She’s done her fair share of shopping at these treasure troves and has years of experience transforming heirloom finds into beautiful pieces of home decor.

It’s no surprise we’re big fans of Yottam Ottolenghi. We love his recipes for their brightness, freshness, and complex, multi-layered flavors—usually achieved by combining various fresh herbs, toasty, nutty spice blends, and dynamic, umami-rich ingredients (hello, pomegranate molasses and black garlic).
