Wed, 16 Aug 2017 16:04:03 -0700


As a versatile, simple, and healthy dip, hummus has taken the world by storm, and Trader Joe's does not disappoint in its inventory of different flavors. Aside from a classic dip, there are so many great ways to use hummus, like as a dressing or even added into soup.

8 Chicken Leg Recipes That Put the Rest of the Bird to Shame

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 16:00:18 -0700


Why opt for a basic chicken breast when you can go for the best section - the leg? Poultry parts can be prepared a variety of ways, but hindquarters (aka legs that are made up of one thigh and one drumstick joined together) bring the flavor, the juice, and the meat so you're not facing a dried-out disaster come dinnertime.

The Completely Addictive Method of Making Pasta Sauce

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:45:47 -0700


The idea of making homemade pasta sauce might sound intimidating, but it's a lot less complicated than you'd think. And I'm not talking about a more involved project like a beef bolognese. My go-to way to prepare pasta is with a lemony, garlicky, buttery sauce that comes together in minutes - and practically out of nothing. The truth is that a "sauce" for pasta can be as simple as butter and parmesan cheese (cacio e pepe, anyone?), and a few simple staples, like lemon and red pepper flakes, can jazz it up and wildly enhance the flavor.

If you're like me and you believe there's nothing more comforting than a bowl of garlicky, cheesy pasta and you also don't have the patience to spend a lot of time on an elaborate meal, read on to discover the best and easiest way to prepare an A+ pasta sauce in 10 simple steps. You'll soon be adding this to your pasta rotation, too.

These Are the Best Starbucks Secret Menu Drinks of the Year - So Far

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 13:59:03 -0700


I don't know about you, but I feel like Starbucks just keeps upping its game with its drinks. But what's even better than that is the baristas and fans who are coming up with better and more off-the-wall drinks every day. Some of them have been spinoffs of on-the-menu items (like the Unicorn Frappuccino) and some of them have just been brilliant ideas born out of an affinity for the brand.

This year's best creations - so far - all have a couple things in common. For one, they're all very colorful. Secondly, a lot of them are based on mythical creatures . . . this does seem to be the year of the mermaid, after all. While some of these drinks you can easily still have made at your local Starbucks, some of them require limited-edition ingredients that are no longer available. As always, when ordering something off the unofficial secret menu, it's best to show up to your store prepared with the entire recipe. Your barista will thank you.

Ahead, find this year's best drinks and stay tuned as we anxiously await further creations that might pop up!

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 11:15:18 -0700


Brace yourselves, reader, because the following news may make you salivate and/or attempt to eat your screen. We've just discovered that McDonald's locations in Singapore have begun selling freakin' waffle fries, and they look incredibly dreamy.

This salt-coated side dish (or main dish, if you so please) was recently released in McDonald's restaurants in Singapore as part of a limited-edition menu that includes other local favorites like a coconut pie dessert and the Nasi Lemak Burger (a coconut-flavored chicken patty topped with fried egg, caramelized onions, and cucumber slices). Officially referred to as "criss-cut fries," the greasy, potato-y masterpieces are basically 10 fries in one, if you really think about it, and we're all about getting the most bang for our buck.

Joanna Gaines's Latest Message May Inspire You to Get Back in the Kitchen

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 10:45:15 -0700



Chip and Joanna Gaines's fourth issue of Magnolia Journal centers around the theme of gratitude. In "a note from Jo," Joanna expresses her thankfulness for cooking. A small change in attitude enabled her to find joy in cooking, a chore she used to feel apprehensive about. If you can relate to avoiding your kitchen, Joanna's mealtime ritual may inspire you to cook:

"I used to dread meal planning, grocery shopping, and then cooking just to have to clean up the mess right after the meal. I felt like all of that prep took forever, and then the meal was over in flash with the subsequent work to be done. Over time, I tweaked my mindset and actually grew to love cooking, not merely tolerate it. It is an honor and privilege to serve my family in this way. I am so thankful for each of these bodies that I get to help nourish. That simple shift opened the door for me to view cooking as a creative opportunity to feed the ones I love. I started to get more adventurous and honed my skills. Meals started to provide a real sense of accomplishment, and the better I got, the more I enjoyed it. I also began to light a candle, turn on good music, and open the window by the sink. That little ritual set this time apart, and I began to look forward to it even more."

This issue has hit newsstands and contains many more toothsome tidbits, including Joanna's philosophy on gratitude, a very personal story from Chip about his ex-girlfriend, and more fresh lifestyle tips from our favorite fixer uppers.
