DINNERS UNDER 500 CALORIES Try these light meals from our Weeknight Cooking section. BROILED TILAPIA AND EGGPLANT WITH MOROCCAN PESTO PAGE 66 CALORIES: 470 GARLIC SHRIMP AND POTATOES PAGE 78 CALORIES: 440 POBLANO ENCHILADA QUICHE PAGE 74 CALORIES: 490 THAI NOODLE BOWL WITH CHICKEN PAGE 78 CALORIES: 460 Get Out! Here’s a good excuse to take dinner outside: A new study from the University of Alberta found that when the sun’s light reaches the fat cells right under our skin, it can actually reduce their ability to store fat. Researchers say this could be partially explained by evolution—our ancestors needed to retain fat in winter and burn it off in summer. Make Michael Symon’s pork chops on the grill (page 118), then eat them on your patio! HAPPY DAYS You already know that fruits and vegetables make you healthier, but they might also…

great tips from the worst cooks

Would you like a piece of chocolate cake? Actually, let me rephrase the question: Would you like this piece of chocolate cake? Whether you want it or not, most of you probably wouldn’t take it, because humans, for some reason, like to leave the last sliver of dessert behind. I’m sure you’ve witnessed this. Your friends leave a single cookie on a tray. Or you open a box of doughnuts and find one-eighth of one left, because no one wants to be the heartless soul who polishes off the final crumb. There’s an expression in Spanish for the last bite that no one will take: la de la vergüenza. Translation: “the one of shame.” This is a strange phenomenon—the laws of supply and demand suggest that we should want the last…

MAY 20 Most memorable birthday “Twenty-one was nice! I could finally throw away the ID I made to sneak into a King Crimson concert. More recently, I had kind of a big birthday and I took some close friends to Per Se for dinner. Chef Thomas Keller’s team killed it.” Best gift ever “Last year I got a ring by one of my favorite sculptors, Harry Bertoia, and a piece of art called John & Yoko: Wedding Album by artist Bill Miller. Unrelated to my birthday, I once sent movie DVDs to troops in Afghanistan. Weeks later I received an American flag from them—and promptly burst into tears.” Favorite birthday cake “My favorite cake, period, is Black Forest, but carrot cake is up there, too.” Birthday meal “I’m a huge fan of fried chicken with champagne. I also…

Damaris, I tried your English muffin recipe and it was delicious! Is there a reason you use coconut oil, and can I swap it for canola or vegetable oil instead? Erika Music Dublin, OH I like the taste and texture of coconut oil. I know a lot of people don’t like that it’s full of saturated fat, but it’s my preference for this recipe (foodnetwork.com/englishmuffins). That said, you can absolutely substitute another oil you like instead. Walnut or avocado oil are great choices. Whatever you use is going to make the muffins taste a little bit different, and I think that’s cool. —Damaris Phillips Eddie, I’ve heard it’s best to pat chicken dry before grilling it, but what if it’s marinated? Should I wipe off the marinade? Ashley Clark Fort Meyers, FL No! You don’t want…
