The giddiness sets in about a mile into the Lost Mine Trail, 6,000 feet up in the burnt sienna Chisos Mountains of Big Bend National Park. Beyond the peaks, hundreds of miles of Chihuahuan Desert spread out on every side, yet the trail is bursting with life. Vibrant yellow goldenrod and damianita; spiky-petaled, neon-red mountain sage blossoms; and ghostly white clouds of flowering mountain mahogany crowd the path in bushy abundance. At scenic lookout after scenic lookout, I dawdle in the hot October sun between patches of shade from pinyon pine and oak trees, sharing the views of the deep, green crease of Juniper Canyon and the volcanic ridges of the Chisos range with absolutely no one. A little farther, a gentle rise in the trail gives way to switchbacks, and I…

TEST KITCHEN TIPS Better Baked Pasta Easy ways to improve lasagna, mac and cheese, ziti, and more 1. UNDERCOOK THE NOODLES Boil pasta 3 minutes less than the package directions; it will finish cooking in the oven. 2. SAUCE GENEROUSLY Make sure all of the pasta is well coated in sauce so the noodles won’t dry out as they bake. 3. MAKE THE BREADCRUMBS Homemade crumbs vary in size, which creates a crunchier topping. 4. LET IT SIT Freshly baked pasta should rest for about 5 minutes so it can firm up and become easier to serve. “When making a baked pasta, grate hard cheeses like Parmesan yourself. It takes a little more time but will melt much better than the pregrated kind.”—Pam Lolley, Test Kitchen Professional SUPERMARKET SMARTS Know Your Mozzarellas Learn the difference between these two common types FRESH: Tender balls of fresh…
