simplify the season

While listening to one of my favorite bands the other day, I heard a song lyric that made a lot of sense: “If you’re falling apart, you’re probably trying too hard.” Surely, this statement can apply to many things in life – I mean, isn’t it so true? And one of them is hosting. Getting everyone together under one roof for a successful, peaceful holiday meal is one of the simplest joys in life, but most would admit that pulling it off simply is, well, a rare occurrence. We want this year to be different for you, so we commissioned one of our very best recipe developers, Jill Silverman Hough, to create a fuss-free feast that skips the traditional full bird in favor of a flavor-explosion stuffed turkey breast and…

Q/ Is whipping cream the same thing as heavy cream? —CATHERINE FRASER, WINNIPEG, MB A/ The main difference is the amount of milk fat they contain. Heavy cream (also known as heavy whipping cream) is the richer, higher-calorie variety that contains 36% or more milk fat while whipping cream contains somewhere between 30% and 35% milk fat, depending on the brand. While these creams are virtually interchangeable in most recipes, particularly sauces, the denseness of heavy cream makes it better for creating stiff peaks or for piping through a pastry bag. The softness of whipping cream is lovely spooned over fresh berries or as a dessert filling. _ MARIANNE WREN We Hear You!

10 easy ways to waste less

1/ Plan your perishables. According to the USDA, food waste makes up approximately 18% of the trash stream in the United States. To save food dollars and avoid that unwanted science experiment in your produce drawer, eat your most perishable items (such as berries) first. Save heartier produce (such as apples or sweet potatoes) for later in the week. Frozen fruits and vegetables are always smart strategies; they won’t spoil if your dinner plans change. 2/ Shop and store foods using eco-friendly containers. Sure, you’re already using your reusable totes. But many stores now let you go a step further, allowing you to bring clean, reusable glass jars or mesh bags to load up foods from the bulk-bin aisle, produce section, kombucha counter and more. The bonus with this strategy is…

Asparagus Kimchi HEALTH BENEFIT: Fermented foods are full of probiotics, but in order to keep gut bacteria balanced, you also need prebiotics, or nondigestible carbohydrates that feed probiotics, like the inulin found in asparagus. This makes fermented asparagus a superfood for digestive and immune system health to help keep your body strong and disease-free all winter long. Kimchi Root Sticks HEALTH BENEFIT: Citrus fruits are high in vitamin C, an important antioxidant for immune and skin health, but the real supernutrients in citrus lie in its flavonoids, which are found in the peel and pith. Studies have found that citrus flavonoids help repair DNA damage, lower cholesterol and have anti-inflammatory properties. Superfruit Kimchi HEALTH BENEFIT: This recipe is bursting with antioxidant-rich fruits like pomegranate, red grapes and goji berries. Plus, pineapple, cilantro and mint have…

a recipe for trust

The next time you have a lunch meeting with a potential client, consider ordering the same dish as them. New research from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business suggests that eating similar foods promotes trust and cooperation between adults. Lead researcher Ayelet Fishbach, PhD, and her co-author, Kaitlin Woolley, found that what you eat can promote bonding and a sense of closeness, since food – above any other similarities – plays a special role in social relationships. “Our research suggests people can be strategic in using their food consumption to connect with another person,” says Fishbach, noting that the strategy also works if someone wants to serve certain foods to people with whom they wish to connect. “People in a business meeting, at a conference or on a…
