18 Types of Lettuce and the Best Ways to Eat Each One

Posted in Featured

Grouped under a larger category of salad greens, these vegetables are most often served raw, dressed and tossed with other salad ingredients. Whether you're using them raw or cooked, though, different types of lettuce can add quite a bit of texture and flavor to whatever you're making. For clarification's sake, types of lettuces can be generally placed in one of four categories: looseleaf, butterhead, crisphead, and romaine. A prime example of a crisphead is iceberg lettuce: its round head is made up of tightly packed, crunchy leaves. Many of these salad greens are also easy to grow yourself; for seeds and seedlings, consult your local gardening supply shop or an online source such as Burpee.

The ice cream company announced today it would be adding both Gingerbread Cookie Dough Chunks and Cinnamon Bun Dough Chunks to its line of edible cookie dough. The gingerbread flavor is VERY packed with ginger but still tastes like true cookie dough. The cinnamon roll flavor gets the flavor of dough, icing, and cinnamon and manages to mix them together perfectly. You can find both of these flavors this fall and winter for a limited time along with Ben & Jerry's five others: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Half Baked. Bags run about $3.99-5.49 so be sure to stock up before your freezer is filled with actual cookie dough.
Best Szechuan Beef Recipe

Best Szechuan Beef Recipe

Posted in Featured

When searching for "Szechuan beef" recipes, there are two variations that turn up: a deliciously saucy stir-fry dish popular in many Chinese-American restaurants, and another spicier version that hails from the eponymous region in China. The latter version incorporates the use of fresh chilis, Szechuan peppercorns, and dry heat to create a crispier result. Our version below, reworked and updated following reader feedback, is a blend of the two that marries the more intense heat of fiery chilis and numbing Szechuan peppercorns with mildly sweet and salty sauciness. To tame the heat, we're adding in a tiny touch of sugar, some sweet red bell peppers and carrots, and a tablespoon of hoisin sauce. Editor's Note: This introduction to this recipe was updated on August 6, 2020 to include more information about the dish.

Two women are taking on Kraft, asking them to change their Macaroni and Cheese. Vani Hari and Lisa Leake are food bloggers leading a campaign and petition on Change.org to get Kraft to remove two color dye ingredients from their beloved Macaroni and Cheese. [...] Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in the US contains the artificial food dyes Yellow 5 and Yellow 6. These unnecessary—yet potentially harmful—dyes are not in Kraft Macaroni and Cheese in other countries, including the UK, because they were removed due to consumer outcry." Lisa Leake, a mom and 100DaysofRealFood.com blogger, and Vani Hari, an aunt and Foodbabe.com blogger, both share the reasons for their campaign on “Starting Point” this morning.

How to Make Cassava Cake (Bibingka Cassava)

Posted in Featured

When I set out to make bibingka cassava recently, the first thing I did was to go through the flours in my pantry. Bibingka cassava, or cassava cake, is to my mind the greatest cake of all time. “There is no flour.”Chef and cookbook author Marvin Gapultos had a similar experience upon receiving his grandmother’s cassava cake recipe. Because bibingka cassava uses grated cassava instead of rice flour, it has the added benefit of cassava’s sweet, slightly nutty flavor. “But I remember having the cassava version for the first time, and knowing there was something different about it.

How to Turn an Almost-Empty Peanut Butter Jar Into Dinner

Posted in Featured

A jar of peanut butter that used to last at least a month in my single life now disappears in just one week. I don't ever want to be the kind of partner who hides the peanut butter jar. Like making peanut butter sauce with the teeny bit left in the bottom of each jar. Warm water is best because it helps to loosen the nut butter more quickly, and generally equal parts nut butter to liquid is the best ratio. And luckily, now I've learned to always have a backup jar of peanut butter in the house.
