6 Essentials for the Perfect Mimosa
You may think that crafting a mimosa requires nothing more than simply splashing cheap bubbly wine into orange juice, but if you take a little extra time, source quality ingredients, and embrace a creative spirit, you can very easily take this brunch staple to the next level. When shopping for a dry, sparkling wine to use in my mimosas, I tend to stay in the $10 to $25 range. I like to provide a delicious option for those brunch guests, who might want to simply sip on sparkling wine, sans juice.

Cool Idea: Fruit Juice Ice Cubes
We gulp down a lot of water this time of year, and we’re always looking for new ways to jazz things up. Lately, we’ve been having fun with fruit juice ice cubes.

A splash of that in a glass of water was amazingly good and refreshing.

Kitchen Science: Demystifying Gluten
Ah, gluten. Bread bakers love it and pastry chefs keep it at a respectful distance. So what’s the deal with gluten and what can we oh-so-humble home cooks do about it?All flour contains a certain percentage of protein, ranging from 8% for cake flour to around 13% for durum semolina (pasta) flour.

Odd Bedfellows: Ranch Dressing on a Breakfast Sandwich?

I couldn’t stop trying to imagine what that combination of flavors would taste like.

Weekend Meditation: On Grocery Shopping
Many people don’t enjoy grocery shopping but I do. I think this is because I’m a bit of a maverick: It’s rare that I have a list and my usual strategy is to meander about, browsing in every isle, looking for inspiration and a new brand of applesauce. It’s not unusual for me to spend two hours in a grocery store. Two blissful hours.(Image: Dana Velden)I concede that I’m not trying to feed a family of four or holding down two jobs while in medical school.
