  • This Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf is Just Four Steps Away

    Here's our strategy for getting a leg up on dinner: Cook once, eat twice! Today's recipe for chili-glazed meatloaf is equally delicious whether it's just out of the oven or the freezer. All you need to do to create two night's worth of meals is to separate this recipe into two loaf pans. What could be easier? And while the spicy sauce infuses the meat with some serious flavor, it's not intensely hot (meaning your whole family can enjoy the same dish). Bon appetit -- tonight or any night!

  • 5 Ways to Turn Canned Chickpeas into a Restaurant-Worthy Dish

    It's not complicated to understand why we love canned chickpeas: they're low in calories, high in protein, and have a mild nuttiness that elevates the flavor of countless dishes. In fact, we're such big fans of these adaptable beans that we've featured them in five new recipes in our October issue.

    Chickpea Fritters

    These quick and flavorful fritters are made in a food processor, then lightly fried on your stovetop. This light meal also happens to be completely vegetarian.

    1 can (15.5 ounces) rinsed and drained chickpeas
    1/2 cup sliced scallions
    1/3 cup chopped cilantro
    1/2 cup flour
    1 large egg
    1 teaspoon coarse salt
    Olive oil
    Salad and lemon wedges, for serving

    1. In a food processor, pulse together chickpeas, scallions, and cilantro until a coarse paste forms. Pulse in flour, egg, and salt. Heat 1/4 inch olive oil in a large skillet over medium high. Add chickpea mixture to skillet, 1/4 cup at a time, pressing to form patties. Cook until golden brown on both sides, turning

  • Cook One-Pot Meals in One-Third of the Time (Seriously!)

    Easy, speedy, and made in a single pot: That's what we call a dinner triple threat. One way to achieve the mealtime trifecta is to use a pressure cooker, which utilizes steam and a tightly sealed lid to create a high-pressure environment that accelerates the cooking process. It's like pressing fast-forward on your favorite dishes: Most can cook in a third of the time they would need in the oven or on the stove top. That means slow-cooked dishes, such as braised short ribs or pulled pork, are possible even on a weeknight. Unlike their vintage predecessors, modern pressure cookers are very safe, thanks to mechanisms that prevent the lid from opening until all of the pressure has been released. Lighter, quick-cooking foods, such as fish or delicate vegetables, can easily overcook, so save pressure cooking for heartier fare like large cuts of meat, sturdy root vegetables, and dried beans.

    How It Works

    When heated, some of the liquid turns into steam in the tightly sealed pressure

Today, I'm doubling the flavor of my cooked oats by baking them in the oven with pecans and bananas. This breakfast is seriously filling -- it has tons of fiber, fruit, and protein -- so a bowl of it will keep you energized for hours. Make it this weekend and see for yourself!"

  • Make the Ultimate Fall Pancakes with Apples and Buttermilk!

    "Did you know that today is National Pancake Day? Any food as spectacular as a pancake deserves its own holiday! In celebration, I'm making a stack of sweetly tart buttermilk-apple pancakes. And the best news of all: This recipe relies on applesauce -- instead of lots of sugar -- to help create a deep fruit flavor, so it's healthier than the average flapjack you'd make from a mix. I can't think of a more fall-friendly (and delicious!) breakfast than this one, so grab your spatula and start cooking."

  • Prosciutto + Baked Eggs + Tomatoes ... Need We Say More?

    "You already know how much I love making breakfast food for dinner, and that's why today's recipe is quickly becoming one of my new favorites. It's a savory prosciutto tart that's layered with sweet grape tomatoes and a just-set baked egg. These flaky squares are not only gorgeous to look at but they're dead simple to prepare (store-bought puff pastry makes this recipe a cinch to arrange). You can also easily increase this recipe just by rolling out another pastry sheet. Give your meat-and-potatoes meals a break and try these delicate treats for dinner instead."
