Make Two Weeks' Worth of Breakfasts With One Sheet Pan  Make Two Weeks' Worth of Breakfasts With One Sheet Pan 

I love a fast food breakfast. Few things bring me as much joy as an Egg McMuffin or terrible breakfast burrito, even though I know they’re not exactly “healthful.” So rather than spend my mornings at the drive-through—I don’t have a car—I decided to make my own quick and easy breakfast fare, and I made a lot of them.

There Are Only a Few Days Left to Save on BioLite's Awesome New FirePit There Are Only a Few Days Left to Save on BioLite's Awesome New FirePit

BioLite, maker of our favorite camping stoves and lighting, is back with a FirePit we’ve been psyched about since we saw it in action back in December. Their Kickstarter launched today and is already... on fire.

FaceTime a Boiling Pot So You Can Leave the Kitchen FaceTime a Boiling Pot So You Can Leave the Kitchen

They say a watched pot never boils, but it’s unclear as to whether that addage applies to video calls. In a move I can only call “brilliantly lazy” one enterprising young man used his iPhone to monitor a pot of water he was trying to bring to a boil.

Parchment Is the Best Sandwich Wrapper, But Just Barely Parchment Is the Best Sandwich Wrapper, But Just Barely

There are many ways to make a sandwich, and many ways to wrap one. But which sandwich swaddling does the best job of keeping your brown-bagged lunch fresh? And does the wrapping material really matter that much?

Use a Cake Pan to Make Smaller Portions of Sheet Pan Meals Use a Cake Pan to Make Smaller Portions of Sheet Pan Meals

“Sheet pan meals”—aka, meals in which all of the components are cooked entirely on a sheet pan—are currently all the rage. But if your household is comprised of only a couple people (or, gasp, one human), you don’t exactly need a sheet pan-amount of food.

You Can Use a Handkerchief as Cheesecloth You Can Use a Handkerchief as Cheesecloth

Cheesecloth is one of those things I never seem to have on hand and have to purchase anew each time I wish to make ricotta. Though you can technically wash and reuse it, I’ve always found that task to be a bit frustrating. (It doesn’t get fully clean when I hand-wash it, but gets all effed up in the laundry.)

Let's Sous Vide Some Football Snacks Let's Sous Vide Some Football Snacks

Hello sous-vide fam, and welcome back to another topic-picking session for Will It Sous Vide?, the column where I make whatever you want me to with my immersion circulator.

When and How to Blanch Vegetables When and How to Blanch Vegetables

There are certain vegetables—like green beans and broccoli—that can either be gorgeous, brightly colored and perfectly tender-crisp, or sad, dull, and soggy. Luckily, making sure they these veggies become their best selves only takes a matter of minutes—you simply have to blanch them.

I Tried ALDI's $60 Stand Mixer, And It's Pretty Good I Tried ALDI's $60 Stand Mixer, And It's Pretty Good

Everyone’s favorite budget-friendly grocery store is at it again. Beginning October 18th, you can buy a six-speed Ambiano classic stand mixer at any ALDI store for sixty American dollars. I was sent one to review, and I’m so happy I got to try it out. Not only was it fun to test, it performed pretty admirably—and I…

How to Make the Best Possible Pot Brownies How to Make the Best Possible Pot Brownies

I’d wager a good portion of 14-64 year old humans ask “Is there weed in here?” when handed a homemade brownie. So ubiquitous are THC-laded chocolatey treats that this buddy comedy fuel is often people’s first foray into edible cannabis. (Likely attributable to chocolate’s powers of covering up nearly any unpleasant…

Make a Salad That Will Keep You Full for Hours Make a Salad That Will Keep You Full for Hours

The word “salad” does not denote “healthiness” or a lack of calories, but something about the word seems to imply a scarcity. Packing a salad for lunch seems to doom one to an afternoon of hunger pains or emergency vending machine runs, but no more. We’re going to tell you how to build a salad that will leave you…

Grilled Green Bean Casserole Is Your New Fall Side Dish Grilled Green Bean Casserole Is Your New Fall Side Dish

Welcome back to Sunday Sustenance! We are rapidly approaching roast season, yet I’m still grilling as if it was July. I’m ready for roast beef with all the fixins, but it has been far too hot to run the oven for the better part of four hours.

The Secret to Making Boneless Chicken Wings Is That They Aren’t (Wings) The Secret to Making Boneless Chicken Wings Is That They Aren’t (Wings)

Maybe I was naive, but I always believed boneless wings were… wings? I never gave too much thought to how they got boneless, but I’m not a butcher, so why should I worry about it? But then I came across a recipe for making boneless wings at home, and, well, I’m a little bit shook.

Cook Multiple Things in One Instant Pot Through the Clever Use of Trivets Cook Multiple Things in One Instant Pot Through the Clever Use of Trivets

The Instant Pot may be a multi-cooker, but most of its functions focus on one food at a time, often to excellent results. This is fine, but you can actually cook two distinct foods—say, a meaty main and a starchy side—in your Instant Pot at the same time. You just need a trivet.

Low-Fat Avocados Aren't New, but They Are Kind of Pointless Low-Fat Avocados Aren't New, but They Are Kind of Pointless

A Spanish fruit company is leading people to believe that they “invented” a low-fat avocado which they are calling “Avocado Light.” This, however—as the kids say—is “already a thing.”

How to Make Your Favorite Cocktail Into a Lollipop How to Make Your Favorite Cocktail Into a Lollipop

As we approach Halloween, there will be much talk of making your own Snickers or DIY-ing candy corn. I usually leave that stuff alone, as the Snickers bar has already been perfected. If I’m going to make my own candy, I want it to be unique, special, and—why not?—boozy.

How to Build an Indian Spice Cabinet How to Build an Indian Spice Cabinet

Indian cooking can seem complicated and convoluted to people who aren’t inherently familiar with it; all that grinding of various spice pastes—a dash of this, a smidgen of that. But the truth is that once you get the hang of a few basic spices, Indian cooking is as straightforward as any other cuisine.

How to Use Wine That Is No Longer Drinkable In the Kitchen How to Use Wine That Is No Longer Drinkable In the Kitchen

I know that none of you ever leave a bottle of wine anything less than completely drained, but sometimes people make mistakes, and a bit of “extra” wine may oxidize. But even if you can’t drink it, this now-vinegary, fermented grape juice doesn’t need to be tossed.
