Freezing Time

I love an elegant brunch, but sometimes it seems like I need at least eight hands in order to get everything together in order. What would you say if I told you there are some fantastic tricks out there for making it all fall together like magic?

Dippy Day

When I'm feeling a bit lazy when dinner time rolls around, I toss together a fun dip. Then I turn to thick corn chips, vegetables, or — in this case — my favorite focaccia for enjoying a delicious meal that lets me embrace my inner kid.

Slow Bourbon

Enjoyable as a nightcap or in your favorite cocktail, bourbon can also bring its smoothness to your dinner table. Get a great recipe for Sweet Bourbon Pork that boasts a complex sauce in an easy vessel: your slow cooker!

Fruity Magic

Adding a splash of tangy fruit takes classic magic bars to an entirely new level: one that will have you making sure they make an appearance in your home more often! That will be particularly true when you realize you can have them cooling on the counter in less than an hour.

A Cocktail Twist

Order an old fashioned cocktail just about anywhere in the country and the bartender is likely to grab whiskey from the shelf. However, in Wisconsin, that will be brandy, thank you very much. The Brandy Old Fashioned is a state tradition and one of my favorite drinks … but I'm not above tweaking it a bit!

Quick Mornings

Sometimes a weekend still doesn't leave time for a long, luxurious breakfast. However, that doesn't mean you need to settle for a bagel with a schmear of cream cheese. Give yourself less than a half hour and you can have a fantastic fluffy oven pancake!

Weeknight Shorts: Cajun Al Dente

Pasta doesn't have to spend all of its time with tomato sauce. Grab some Louisiana fun and toss it with the great flavors you've come to love in jambalaya and have dinner on the table in less than a half an hour. Now there's a reason to celebrate!

Flavor from the African Continent

Blending everything from tender chicken to bold spices to creamy peanut butter brings us a bowl of West African comfort food: peanut stew! So grab your favorite pot and expect to be pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to enjoy this classic dish at home.

Fusion Lasagna

Forget folding when it comes to tacos. It's time to get the layers on! By blending two fun culinary concepts — tacos and lasagna — you can assemble a casserole-style dinner with south-of-the-border flair!

10 Alcoholic Desserts for the Boozy Baker

Experience mouthwatering, mind-altering bliss in every morsel of an alcohol-infused dessert when you get some ideas on how to safely and deliciously include alcohol in your sweet tooth's favorite finds.

Butternut Bisque

As March begins, weather can be entirely unpredictable. Make sure you have some warmth in store with delightful recipes like this one, featuring sweet butternut squash, the earthy bite of your favorite curry blend, and a swirl of creaminess that only a good bisque can deliver!
