Extra-Crispy Chicken Meatballs Need Only 3 Ingredients

A Big Little Recipe has the smallest-possible ingredient list and big everything else: flavor, creativity, wow factor. Psst—we don’t count water, salt, black pepper, and certain fats (specifically, 1/2 cup or less of olive oil, vegetable oil, and butter), since we’re guessing you have those covered. Today, we’re saying goodbye to dry, dense chicken meatballs forever.


If you’ve ever made meatballs before, you know that it involves more than just meat, rolled into balls, to get to where you want to go. Well, maybe, maybe not. I’ve been known to buy sausage and call it a day. But if you’re starting with straight-up ground meat, you’re going to need to add some friends to the mix to achieve the big-flavor, wow-worthy meatballs we’re after.

How to Make Natural Food Coloring From Ingredients in Your Kitchen

When it comes to food coloring, I’ll happily take the natural route whenever possible. There are so many beautiful hues in food, so why not use them? Especially for decorated cookies and cakes, I love to DIY. If you want to try it yourself (do it!), read on for our best tips and recipes.


Pro Tips for Natural Food Coloring

1) Choose the source of color.

Sources for natural colorings can be found all over the place, and many may already be in your pantry or fridge. More on how to turn these ingredients into food coloring below, but here are my favorite sources for certain colors. (The ingredients I used in this post are in italics.)

Today, we’re simplifying Thanksgiving.


I have a theory when it comes to holidays: The more dishes you’re making, the simpler those dishes should be. And by simple, I mean preparation—whether that’s the ingredient list, method or, better yet, both—not flavor.

A Big Little Recipe has the smallest-possible ingredient list and big everything else: flavor, creativity, wow factor. Psst—we don’t count water, salt, black pepper, and certain fats (specifically, 1/2 cup or less of olive oil, vegetable oil, and butter), since we’re guessing you have those covered. Today, we’re meeting two spices that will change your mac-and-cheese game forever.


When I was growing up, my mom cooked just about everything from scratch: matzo ball soup, braised brisket, latke chicken, penne puttanesca, eggplant spread, and Tollhouse cookies. But never mac and cheese.

A Stovetop Green Bean Casserole With 4 Ingredients (None of Them Canned)

A Stovetop Green Bean Casserole With 4 Ingredients (None of Them Canned)

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 stovetop-ifying Thanksgiving’s favorite casserole.

Dorcas Reilly, who just passed away last month, invented the green bean casserole 63 Thanksgivings ago. It was called The Green Bean Bake back then, but the signature ingredients were the same as today: canned green beans, canned mushroom soup, milk, soy sauce, black pepper, and French’s fried onions.

How to Keep Any Wooden Cutting Board in Tip-Top Shape

How to Keep Any Wooden Cutting Board in Tip-Top Shape

We love to call our double-sided wooden cutting board a workhorse. It was co-designed by over 10,000 people and sold out a casual three months earlier than expected (psst: it’s back in stock on 11/9!).

One side is ready for everything from carving a turkey to slicing up an extra-juicy grapefruit.

No-Churn Pumpkin Ice Cream With 5 Ingredients & No Pumpkin Spice

No-Churn Pumpkin Ice Cream With 5 Ingredients & No Pumpkin Spice

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. This week: a make-ahead pumpkin dessert that really wants to come to your Thanksgiving.

Most pumpkin desserts don’t taste like pumpkin. They taste like pumpkin spice (as it’s known at Starbucks) or pumpkin pie spice (as it’s known at your supermarket). Like all spice blends, there’s no set formula here. McCormick includes: “cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and sulfiting agents.” Trader Joe’s: “cinnamon, ginger, lemon peel, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom.” Whole Foods 365: “organic cinnamon, organic ginger, organic cloves, organic nutmeg.” The Spice Hunter: “cinnamon, ginger, lemon peel, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, star anise, fennel, black pepper.”
