heading into february,

By now, I’ve made all my favorite comfort-food recipes at least twice and I’m ready to tempt my taste buds with something new. And as for some fun, it’s time for a party! Our entertaining feature this month is an easy menu for a Mardi Gras feast. Instead of king cake, cupcakes steal the show in all the right colors, and the entire menu can be made ahead. Red-carpet viewers: Check out the champagne cocktails and snack ideas on page 29, including a favorite from Wolfgang Puck. This is his 25th year catering the Governors Ball that follows the Acadamy Awards ceremony. And for all the football fans planning to eat during the season’s biggest game, Allrecipes’ best-loved pizza recipes start on page 51. I’m also loving “Cook to Follow,” about a couple…


Sashay THIS Way Put on some jazz and invite your crew for a New Orleans-inspired soirée that does Mardi Gras style in a big, easy way.

Portable, delicious, and sustaining, almonds have been an on-the-go snack staple as far back as biblical times. One of the earliest foods to be cultivated, they were grown across Europe, Asia, and the Middle East before they were introduced to California by Franciscan padres in the 1700s. Today, California produces 80 percent of the world’s almonds—which show up in our cabinets in forms as diverse as milk, butter, paste, oil, and flour. And what was once just a trail-mix favorite is now on the rise as a common beauty food, too. Almonds are loaded with benefits for skin health, starting with high levels of…

It’s only natural to want to pamper your loved ones with home-cooked meals, chocolates, and sweets—especially on Valentine’s Day. But extending those same treats to furry family members can make them ill. Most pet owners already know that chocolates are a big no-no for dogs and cats.
