Recipe: Catskills Apple DumplingsRecipes
What are apple dumplings? Think of them as bite-sized versions of apple pie (only better), with all the goodness of a flaky crust and gooey apple filling. Many are made with whole apples, but the ones I’m hooked on are made with diced apples, which make them super easy to eat. I love picking some up from a local farm stand as a treat for my family and, no matter what, I always eat one straight away. They’re that good!

This Store Is the Dutch Equivalent of Target and IKEA’s BabyPeople
There are a lot of stresses that come with moving to a new country. When I moved to the Netherlands for a six-month stint at the University of Amsterdam, I desperately tried to squeeze all of my favorite pots, pans, and utensils into my suitcase, because I wanted the comfort of those familiar items. Ultimately, though, airline baggage fees and limited suitcase space forced me to leave my cherished cooking supplies behind.

I Visited the Birthplace of Piña Coladas and Learned to Make Them Like a ProPeople
Outside Barrachina in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, a bronze plaque reads: “The house where in 1963 the piña colada was created by Don Ramon Portas Mingot.” In the decades since Don Ramon’s discovery, the drink has exploded in popularity: The restaurant now serves approximately 2,200 piña coladas a day. I stopped into Barrachina on a recent visit to Puerto Rico. And, while undeniably touristy, the restaurant is the type of place where everyone’s having a good time.

I Actually Tried Ina’s Favorite Famous Hot Dog — in Paris!People
Okay, trying Ina’s favorite hot dog is not the only reason I went to Paris. But it was so high up on my to-do list that I went straight from the airport to the hotel (to quickly check in and drop off my bags) and then to the hot dog spot. I did not shower after my overnight flight; I did not stop to change my shoes; I did not pass go or collect $200. I went right to Frenchie To Go. How do I know about Frenchie To Go?

My Favorite Travel Souvenir Is Technically TrashPeople
They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but sometimes the packaging is just too beautiful to throw away. That’s what I was thinking when I was washing dishes in an Airbnb in Provence, France, a few years ago. A collection of glass yogurt pots sat by the sink, waiting to be rinsed and recycled, but I had already decided they’d be flying home with me instead.

TSA Is About to Start Checking Snacks, So Get Ready for Airport Security to Take Even LongerPeople
It’s a good thing we live in a world with flight attendants and tiny bottles of airplane liquor, because TSA has stepped up its screening of carry-on snacks, and it looks like going through airport security could get even slower and more exasperating for everybody. According to The Daily Meal, TSA officers have been making passengers remove all snacks from their bags before screening.

Vacation Is the Best Time to Get Your Picky Eater to Try Something NewPeople
My 6-year-old is transitioning from kindergarten to first grade this summer and suddenly objects to new foods — even some of her old favorites. Generally, this kind of behavior doesn’t bother me — kids will have “seasons” where they are more picky than others, and they don’t last very long if we as parents keep our cool.

Going on vacation is supposed to be relaxing and fun. But there is always so much to worry about before you leave — and even while you’re away! You need to check your luggage to make sure you packed everything you meant to. Then when you’re actually on vacation, you are worrying about your house and your pets, hoping that they are being good for the sitter. And how many times have you stressed about turning the stove off before you left the house? Did you turn it off?

The Best Gas Station in the Country Has Brisket, Jerky, Fudge, and So Much MorePeople
The Lone Star State possesses the perfect environment for gas-station innovation. With 675,580 total road miles, it leads the nation in black top (California ranks a distant second with a paltry 394,608), providing a captive audience willing to support exit-ramp excellence. Its humongous size cultivates a cramped-averse population who possess a skewed sense of proportion (read: we expect a lot of space, and all our beverages arrive super-sized).

10 Home Cooks on How to Minimize Kitchen Time on VacationPeople
For most of us, there is a time for really relishing an afternoon in the kitchen. When it’s rainy, we might settle in for an afternoon of pasta-making bliss, or throw open all the windows while jam bubbles away on the stove. Then again, sometimes we want to do other things, like take full advantage of lovely weather with a long hike, or sit in one place reading for hours at a stretch.

The Airport Breakfast I’m Trying to Recreate at HomePeople
I have been in and out of Manchester, England several times this spring and I can say, with 100 percent certainty, that the staff at the Manchester airport will always ensure that you’re having a pleasant experience — even when a uniformed stranger is searching through your suitcase for a full-sized tube of toothpaste you forgot that you packed. There’s also a better-than-average restaurant called The Lion and Antelope that is always busy (even at 6:45 a.m.

The Easy Way I Save Money When TravelingPeople
Traveling can get very expensive, very quickly.

The easiest way I save money when I’m traveling: I bring or make my own breakfast. Here are five (really good!) reasons why breakfast is the best meal to save on.

Why You Should Always Take the Free Hotel Shower CapPeople
One thing I love about hotel rooms? All the mini amenities. I love trying out the shampoo and conditioner, gargling with mouthwash that I wouldn’t normally use, and finding excuses to break open those little packs of Q-tips. I usually take most of the extras with me, too, since I know the staffers tend to toss them after guests leave — they’re handy if I’m traveling someplace where I won’t be staying in a hotel, or if I run out of something at home.
