To feel safe next time you shop at a farmers market, be sure to keep an eye on overcrowding since this is huge red flag that the farmers market may not be managed well. "If vendors are placed too close together, I'd advise leaving the farmers market," Dr. Ogbuagu adds. skaman306 Getty ImagesAs much as we all love lingering in a farmers market, times are different now.

Let Korean Black Beans Lure You Out of Bed in the Morning

Posted in Favorites

I want to start off by saying that black beans cooked in soy sauce and dressed in sugar and sesame oil are not a traditional breakfast dish in Korea. And also: I've eaten them for breakfast four times this week. First, I ate the beans cold over hot steamed rice and scrambled eggs with plenty of the brothy, deeply flavored cooking liquid spooned over the whole bowl. The second time I made this recipe, I was out of black beans entirely, so I went ahead with red beans and thought they were just as good. "A traditional Korean meal always has five, six, seven, sometimes up to 12 of these little side dishes," says Kim.

Instagram account @tamisclock was among the first to spot the new Lofthouse cookies in store. The sugar cookies are topped with bright yellow frosting and yellow, white, green, and brown sprinkles.

Olive Oil Makes Great Cakes, and This Recipe Is Proof

Olive Oil Makes Great Cakes, and This Recipe Is Proof

Posted in Featured

Where butter is sweet, milky, and often in the background of a cake’s flavor, olive oil is earthy, grassy, and bold. An olive oil cake will always have a savory edge, sometimes even a backnote of bitterness, that a butter cake will lack. Which brings us to another benefit of olive oil cakes: longevity. “I think olive oil cakes kind of get better with age,” says Elizabeth Quijada, the pastry chef at Abraço, a New York City coffee shop that is known for their olive oil cake. Olive oil cake is the only thing we're eating for breakfast now.

I enjoy salty Swedish black licorice from the bins at pick-and-mix candy shops and subtle Australian black licorice in brown wax paper bags, shaped like chubby logs of Korean tteok. Slightly sweet and subtly herbal, Panda black licorice is extremely easy to eat. Panda black licorice is made from just four ingredients—molasses, wheat flour, licorice extract, and aniseed oil—which are slow cooked into a dough, then pressed into shape. If you think you don’t like black licorice, either out of vestigial childhood fears or because absinthe-flavored candy is a turn-off, Panda might be the move for you. Since bodega runs are fewer and further between these days, each one feels extra special; with Panda black licorice in my basket, I make every one count.

Unlike liquid dish soaps that come in plastic containers, solid dish soaps can easily be found in little to no packaging, often wrapped in recycled paper, cardboard, or nothing at all. This is not to say that solid soap is conclusively better than liquid soap, as quality of soap will vary regardless of which state of matter it takes. Solid dish soap users on the internet recommend simple vegetable-based soaps, like castile soaps, for dishwashing. Sure there are some advantages to using liquid dish soap over solid. For regular dishwashing with a soaped up scrubber, solid dish soap is not just an environmentally conscious alternative, but actually a practical tool in your cleaning salvo.

Good luck not eating the entire bag in one sitting, because these Caramel Chocolate Mini Donuts couldn’t look better. These Donettes start with a chocolate donut that is covered in a caramel icing. We’re curious to see how the two balance each other out and how that caramel flavor materializes. The Caramel Chocolate Donettes are available beginning on July 9, a PR rep with Hostess confirmed to Best Products. Sure, the Powdered and Frosted ones are delicious, but we can’t get over how good this caramel and chocolate combination is bound to be.
