5 Strategies for Picking the Right Recipes for a Week of Meal Planning — Meal Planning Club

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 12:30:00 -0500

(image)

Let's be honest — picking out recipes is the most fun part of meal planning. Part of making my meal planning ritual enjoyable and repeatable is making time at the end of each week to flip through magazines, browse Kitchn's recipe page, and select meals for the following week. It doesn't hurt that I like to do this with a cocktail or a soothing cup of tea in hand, either.

On the flip side, the biggest mistake I see new meal planners make is in the recipe selection. Either they are being too narrow in their recipe selection or skipping a key step (or two) before they even select recipes. There are a few better ways to select the right recipes for your meal plan — here are five of the most common.

3 Korean-Inspired Recipes You Can Use for Dinner Every Day — Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinners

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 12:00:00 -0500

Rachel Yang, the James Beard Award-nominated chef behind Seattle's Joule, Revel, and Trove restaurants, and Portland, Oregon's Revelry, is a force. Her food— undeniably Korean at its roots, unabashedly creative in practice — combines noodles, dumplings, barbecue, and hot pots with flavors from all over the globe. But after cooking with her week after week during the process of writing her cookbook, My Rice Bowl: Korean Cooking Outside the Lines, I've learned her food is always one thing: Even though it's restaurant food, it's always comforting.

How a $40 Target Find Became My Favorite Thing in My Kitchen — Feel Good Kitchen

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 11:00:00 -0500

(image)

When my first child was born, my husband's coworker gave us a wooden step stool as a baby gift. It was a beautiful wooden one, about 12 inches tall, white with lavender treads and our daughter's name carved in it in a sweet font. That's nice, I thought, but why would anyone ever gift an apartment-dweller such a large gift?

Well, obviously she was an experienced mom!

4 Cans of Tuna That Get a Thumbs-Up from the Seafood Industry — And 3 That Don't — Shopping

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 10:30:00 -0500

(image)

In the world of nostalgic foods, there are a few standouts: hot chocolate (with mini marshmallows, of course), macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, and the diner classic, the tuna melt. Just the thought of a homemade melt takes us back to sick days, snow days, and pretty much any other day that Mom was responsible for a hot lunch.

The times, they are a changin', though, and as we considered the tuna melt recently, we wondered about canned tuna. Knowing what we do now about sustainability and the many threats facing our oceans, how can we be smart consumers of the ingredient that's all too necessary for a classic tuna melt? What brands of canned tuna are both delicious and safe for the environment?

We reached out to fishmongers across the country to find out, and the consensus was resounding.

Now I'll be making up for lost time. I do believe I've cracked the code to making perfectly tender and mouth-watering barbecued ribs in the oven.

Make Fluffier Scrambled Eggs with This Unexpected Ingredient — Tips from The Kitchn

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 08:30:00 -0500

(image)

I'll skip the thick, flat, dense eggs, thank you very much. Instead my favorite scrambled eggs involve a plate piled high with large, soft yellow curds that spring back with the lightest touch and practically melt in my mouth; the kind of eggs that are fluffy and almost cloud-like.

A quick splash of milk or cream certainly makes for tender eggs, and might even give them some fluff, but there's another ingredient that does the job even better.

There are no hard-and-fast rules — all you need is some cooked rice and some imagination. That's where this breakfast-inspired fried rice comes in. Some of our favorite breakfast ingredients — breakfast sausage, eggs, and, yes, cheese — make their way into this rich and hearty fried rice that you can have any time of day.

Next Week's Meal Plan: 5 Cookbook-Inspired Recipes — Next Week's Meal Plan

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 16:41:44 -0500

(image)

I keep meaning to write a cookbook PSA about the library, but this will have to suffice until then: Did you know that your library has a large cookbook selection? You can request new cookbooks, borrow them, try them out before you buy them. I started doing this last fall as a way to both keep my cookbook shelves tidier and to try out cookbooks before buying or gifting them for the holidays. Borrowing cookbooks from the library is now one of my favorite things.

This week's meal plan is inspired by cookbook recipes I'm trying out this week. Since the recipes aren't always available on the web, I'm linking here to similar recipes, but including a link to the cookbook I borrowed for inspiration.

It's obvious I love to cook, given my day job, but I also happen to be a Registered Dietitian, which means even though I bake all the things, occasionally use butter with reckless abandon, and look for excuses to make a fancy steak dinner, I also am constantly thinking about how I can make whatever I happen to be cooking just a bit more wholesome. It's actually a whole lot easier than you might think and it can be done without sacrificing all the indulgent things. Here are seven simple tricks to keep in mind when you're in the kitchen.

(image)

You guys, I've just come off the longest, most arduous cooking rut of the year and it's only January! The holidays did a number on my cooking motivation and sent me into the classic tailspin of ordering too much takeout, making any excuse for dinner away from home, and eating way too much Annie's mac and cheese. Luckily, as an avid meal planner I know exactly how to get out of these ruts when I'm ready. And don't worry — they don't all involve meal planning. These five tips never fail to get me back in the kitchen whenever a cooking rut strikes.

My 2018 Plan for Finally Facing How Much Money I Spend on Food — Personal Budget

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 16:00:00 -0500

(image)

So, I have a confession to make: I spend a lot of my money on food and drinks. I've justified this for the last five years of my life because, well, writing about food and drinks is literally my job, and doing "research" makes me a better writer and editor, right? It's totally cool that I buy that expensive new chocolate bar because it's super trendy right now and I need to be in the know. And it's fine if I blow all my money on going out to that fancy new restaurant — even though I don't normally write about restaurants — because maybe I'll be inspired by something I eat.

Growing up, we always had a few cans of tuna tucked in the back of our pantry. They were leaned on for easy brown-bag lunch sandwiches, yes, but also for simple, affordable dinners, most often seen in the form of classic noodle casserole. These days, I still find myself with a couple cans on hand at all times to lean on when I am in need of a fuss-free meal that won't break the bank.

How To Make Really Good Restaurant-Style Ramen at Home — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 14:00:00 -0500

(image)

Ramen is a Japanese soup, by way of Chinese noodles, that has become an American obsession. Not only have ramen noodles become part of our cultural lexicon in their ubiquitous dried mass-produced packets that sustained a generation of latch-key kids and college students, but they also grew to a burgeoning restaurant sub-culture of scavenger-hunt ramen shop tours and enthusiastic slurping.

With this recipe, we're exploring how to do that enthusiastic slurping at home. We'll tackle the important components of ramen — broth, seasoning, noodles, and toppings — with respect to our obsession but with a bit of grace and ease.

My husband and I rely on takeout more often than I'd like to admit. If I haven't had the time to meal plan (or grocery shop) for the week, chances are we're having cereal or takeout for dinner. One of those things can be inexpensive (two boxes for $5? Yes, please!), while the other can add up — very quickly.

Luckily, we've figured out one little hack to help us keep our weekly food bills under budget.
