I usually keep my freezer stocked with an assortment of frozen vegetables. Though I usually buy most of our everyday vegetables fresh, I use the frozen variety for all sorts of things. Frozen broccoli, for example, makes a terrific base for soup. Sometimes I even just steam it with a little butter for dinner. Frozen artichoke hearts are the key ingredient to my favorite lasagna, and frozen corn is my go-to for chowder when the fall chill sets in. The best part is that if your freezer is stocked with a few essentials like frozen peas or spinach, you can easily build a meal around them. They are healthy, inexpensive and always add a welcome dose of green. Here are some of my favorite dinners that call for frozen vegetables. They are super easy, so grab a bag from the freezer and whip one of these up for dinner tonight! Click through for 7 delicious dinners made with a bag of frozen veggies! -By Kelsey Banfield

Chef Thomas Keller Thomas Keller may be the force behind two of the most famous restaurants in the country-Per Se in New York City and The French Laundry in Yountville, California-but apparently one of his favorite things to eat isn't topped in foie gras or Black Winter Truffles-it is chocolate chip cookies. In his cookbook Ad Hoc At Home he revealed: "There's a comfort in things that are with us all our lives. My favorite? Without hesitation: chocolate chip. Ideally, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside."

Remember that good-tasting food doesn't always take a lot of skill to make — just some basic know-how and good ingredients.Once, when cooking with a friend, I asked him to check if the artichokes were done. "Sure!" was the immediate response, followed by a pause, and then, "How do I know if they're done?"Read More »from 7 Basic Foods (and Delicious Recipes) Everyone Should Know How to Cook
When first starting to cook, there are many foods and dishes that can be intimidating to prepare or seem overly complicated. But the truth is that when you boil it down to the basics, they are typically quite easy. Remember that good-tasting food doesn't always take a lot of skill to make - just some basic know-how and good ingredients.
And yet, these run-of-the mill foods that should be requisites in any cook's repertoire often go overlooked for fancier or more exciting dishes. Take, for instance, the roast chicken: basic, easy, and economical because one chicken can be turned into many other dishes for later in the week, but most cooks seem to avoid making it at home and opt for chicken breasts or store-bought rotisserie chickens instead. I can promise you this, nailing a roast chicken - we're talking

Rally your Plastics, don your army pants and flip-flops, and stream it in the projection room above the auditorium -- with a side of cheese fries. That's just, like, the rules of feminism.

Amid continued concerns over pesticides, sales of organic food have continued to grow steadily each year, even in the wake of the economic downturn.These days, it's pretty easy to look around on the Internet and find lists of the best and worst fruits and vegetables ranked by the level of pesticide contamination.

And they're pretty much all based on the same study from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). But, have you ever wondered which pesticides are the worst? That's what we're here to find out.
Unsurprisingly, that information can also be found in the same study, the Pesticide Data Program. Roughly every year, the USDA tests a mix of domestic and imported food products for their pesticide levels, including fresh, canned, and frozen produce, meat and poultry, grains, water, and oddly, catfish. Samples are collected from states around the country, representing a majority of the population, and the results are then weighed against the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) established thresholds for pesticide residues.
