It’s early summer and the earth is abuzz with change. And here at Cuisine at Home, we’ve been active, too. We were on a mission to update the look and feel of the magazine, starting by redesigning our logo and layouts. I think the art staff really nailed it! There’s also a new department called “In the Now.” It’s all about new ingredients, books, tools, and anything else that’s currently trending. Some of you requested that we add total sugar amounts to our nutritional analysis, so we did. Yes, change can be hard, but don’t worry — the magazine is still full of the recipes, tips, and techniques you love. Now, take a look at the Cuisine at Home staff. As a team, we are dedicated to providing you with creative and…

tips from our readers

1 WHISK IT I love making pies, but I don’t have a pastry blender, and haven’t had much luck with using a fork or two knives. So I tried using my whisk and it works! With up, down, side-to-side motions, making pastry is as easy as pie. LINDA KESTER SNELLVILLE, GA 2 FRENCH (FRY) OMELETS When I want a potato and cheese omelet, I don’t always have time to peel and cook the potatoes. That’s when I turn to frozen french fries. I simply defrost fries in the microwave, cut them into pieces, then sauté them in a little butter. In no time they’re ready to add to my omelet. CHRISTINE WALSH CHESAPEAKE, VA 3 LOVE ME TENDER Fresh asparagus is my favorite spring vegetable, but snapping off the “woody” ends seems so wasteful to me. Instead,…

EDIBLE FLOWERS If you’re an avid restaurant-goer, or food blog follower, you know how popular edible flowers have recently become. They’re everywhere, topping tacos, soups, salads, and cakes alike. So how do you know which flowers are safe for consumption? Here’s a list of common edible flowers that are easiest to locate at grocery stores and farmers’ markets: • Lavender• Zucchini Blossoms• Pansies• Orchids (shown here)• Roses• Violets• Marigolds (Calendula)• Nasturtiums• Chive Blossoms• Carnations When buying edible flowers, be sure to get them from the produce section of the store, not the florist, as those flowers are often sprayed with chemicals and pesticides.

buzzing about superfoods

WHEN YOU HEAR THE TERM “SUPERFOODS” do you find yourself wondering what they truly are? Maybe you question whether they’re worth paying the high price. Or you understand they’re good for you but aren’t sure they’ll satisfy you. That’s where these two flavor- and nutrition-packed meals come into play. Not your typical “salads,” these recipes are bound to redefine what you think of superfoods and how to put them to good use. Sure, a couple of these ingredients may be a little pricey, but their health benefits outweigh the expense. And incorporating superfoods into your diet adds value. Some ingredients, like hemp hearts, quinoa, and furikake have a long shelf life, and a little goes a long way. And take note of the more common ingredients, like yogurt, spinach, brown rice,…
