Root Vegetables Recipes to Keep You Full this Winter – Bon Appétit

When you think of the winter months and what to cook you immediately turn to all kinds of comfort foods to make you feel good. To go along with all of those great entrees you are making you also need to have some great side dishes. Even as much as I like mashed potatoes, they can get kind of boring after a while. You need to be able to mix things up now and then and the best thing to use during the winter are the root vegetables that are in season right now. You can do great things with potatoes, carrots, beets, celery root and much more and Bon Appetit has put together 51 root vegetable recipes that can help you. Check it out!

22 Supermarket Items You Should Leave on the Shelf (and What to Get Instead) | Serious Eats

Even under the best of circumstances, most of us are going to have days or nights where you want your dinner to be as easy as possible. Beyond getting your meals from a restaurant or take out place, this means buying items that make cooking fast and easy for you and your family. Unfortunately, many of these items really aren’t any easier than doing it yourself, cost more, and do not taste as good as what you can do on your own. Instead of giving up quality, there are many things you can do very easily for yourself that can make any meal you make taste even better, even the simplest ones. Serious Eats has put together 22 items that you should try to avoid buying and instead make use of better tasting alternatives, often things you can do all on your own, to save you money and give you better flavor. Check it out!
