This 2-Ingredient Holiday App Is a Real Compliment Magnet

It’s the most wonderful time of the year—so bring on the comfort & joy, we say. In The Art of Chill Holidays, we’ll show you how we keep celebrations low-key, with festive decor tricks, clever time-saving tips, and scrumptious spreads of snacks (always snacks!).

I’m forever on the hunt for irresistible party foods. I am a true people-pleaser, and nothing gives me more satisfaction than guests going in for another savory pinwheel or another dip-loaded chip, teetering on the brink of breakage. I love an appetizer so good it will (politely) interrupt a tête-à-tête, forcing the parties to look down at their hands and proclaim they just need this recipe for themselves before diving in for another bite.

Test Kitchen–Approved Recipes Are Here!

Test Kitchen–Approved Recipes Are Here!

Food52’s first test kitchen—and photo studio, and video set—was our co-founder Amanda Hesser’s apartment. Fast-forward to today, and we’re in an office with three kitchens on three floors. Everything smells like butter (or, you know, steak); there’s never a shortage of warm cookies; and by the end of each day, ingredient leftovers—from handfuls of parsley to half-full jars of kimchi brine—are headed to loving homes.

Food52’s test kitchens are the heart (er, stomach?) of our humble headquarters. And at the moment, we have almost 50,000 recipes—thanks to our staff and freelancers but, more than anyone else, our community members.. This mix of content from professional and home cooks is one of our proudest parts of Food52. But it does make a reader (maybe even you!) wonder: How can someone tell the difference between a recipe from the test kitchen and a recipe submitted by a community member?

As someone who lives 30 minutes away from her family, my holiday travel is usually short and sweet. However, many people are in a different boat. I have friends all around the country—from Oregon to Texas to Florida—who trek back to good ol’ New England to spend the holidays with family, and they all know one thing to be true: Traveling during December is hectic and stressful.

14 Sweet, Sappy Holiday Movies We Can't Wait to Binge-Watch

14 Sweet, Sappy Holiday Movies We Can’t Wait to Binge-Watch

I’ve mentioned before how inviting friends over for a bottle of wine and a movie is one of my favorite ways to spend a Friday night. And as the holidays really kick into high gear—with cookie swaps and happy hours and office parties—nothing feels better, or more restorative, than a chill movie night at home dedicated to one of my favorite genres: Holiday Romance.

Yes, sometimes we watch thrillers or dramas, but for the next couple of weeks, I’m dedicating movie nights to all the super sentimental, totally cheesy flicks that make December the best time of the year. There are the classics, like ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ and ‘White Christmas’, or fast favorites, like ‘The Holiday’ and ‘Just Friends’. Heck, I’m even queuing up made-for-TV specials, like last year’s sleeper hit, ‘A Christmas Prince’. Judge me if you want, but I’ll be bingeing in bliss until 2019.

3 Dazzling Holiday Tabletops that Don’t Require Folding a Napkin into a Turkey

3 Dazzling Holiday Tabletops that Don’t Require Folding a Napkin into a Turkey
Places, everyone.

Places, everyone.

I’ll bet you the vast expanse of my great grandma’s holiday salt-and-pepper shaker collection that somewhere along the line you picked up one or two table-setting rules. Maybe you even read a rule book telling you wrinkly linen is a crime and gravy boats should match the butter crockery and candlesticks should always be the same height (tips hat reverently to those of you who’ve mastered this). But sometimes—with tiny people underfoot and bigger ones peering over your shoulder as you try to whisk cornstarch into drippings—it’s just nice to know the table’s ready. And not only ready, but welcoming. And pretty. And practical, too. Does that seem like a tall order? If so, read on because we’ve got some ideas up ahead. And more importantly, consider this a friendly reminder that you, dear friend, are the master of your hard-won meal’s mise en place.

So whether you’re feeling a down-to-earth vibe but want to bring out a few cherished dishes, or you’ve decided to go with something a bit more minimalist, here are three show-stopping (and foolproof) tablescapes that’ll ensure the most important things stay front and center: food, friends, family (and wishbone pulling—don’t forget that).

This Miracle Gadget Will Transform the Way You Juice Lemons

This Miracle Gadget Will Transform the Way You Juice Lemons

Until a month ago, I was a person who would vehemently proclaim the only tools I needed to juice a lemon were a fork and my bare hands. Yes, it was messy. And yes, I had to painstakingly fish out seeds. Yes, I’m always brightening up salads, soups, and such with a splash of fresh juice. But why add a citrus squeezer or juicer to my already packed kitchen?

But then, at an event celebrating the launch of Julia Turshen’s Now & Again, I received this OXO Good Grips Small Citrus Juicer with Built-In Measuring Cup and Strainer. She mentioned how it was great to measure exact amounts of juice when testing recipes, and, later, I saw she mentioned it again when speaking to The Cut:
