A few months ago, in a post about the 10 things she always has in her kitchen, Cook's Country editor Eva Katz revealed her love of the paper stand. "I have a paper stand for holding my recipes as I work," she said. "It's a pretty handy-dandy thing to have when you print out recipes from the internet."
There are stands for cookbooks and iPads, but if you're still kicking it old-school with your printed out recipes (and we know a lot of you are), you deserve a stand of your own! Here are five to choose from.
I love eating shrimp for a lighter meal or as an appetizer, so I always have a bag in the freezer as a quick backup meal.
Shrimp can be cooked in just about every way possible: seared, broiled, and grilled! But the one tricky thing about shrimp is that they can quickly overcook. No one likes rubbery shrimp — so my favorite cooking method makes sure that fate never befalls them.
For many home cooks, lentils have officially crossed over from the world of unfamiliar legume to common pantry staple, earning a coveted spot on the shelf between rice and beans. Red or green, tender or toothy, hot or cold — lentils can be used in an endless variety of dishes. And no matter how you plan to eat them, they usually start with a simple boil and drain.
Lately I'm all about making simple, weeknight meals with luxurious twists. It doesn't have to be complicated, but I want it to be special. Is that so hard? I like this recipe because it takes something easy to throw together – pesto, pasta, and shrimp – and makes it a little bit more exciting. Instead of the traditional basil pesto, you get an spring-y asparagus-spinach pesto.
I've come to use my kitchen shears on a more regular basis. In early days, I only really used them to cut open packages, but now I reach for them daily for all kinds of prep and cooking tasks. Here are six ways to use them around the kitchen so they get as much use as your regular knives!
I have a set of similar tall glasses from CB2 — but as soon as I saw these hot pink ones I promptly considered replacing them. I love the tall, slim shape of these glasses — they're very nice to hold. But the hot pink puts them over the top. It's spring, and these promise all sorts of nice drinks to come.
