letter from allrecipes

Come February and March, it seems a lot of us hunker down in our kitchens and cook. (Wild guess why? It’s still miserably cold and wet outdoors, sadly.) We cook up vats of soups and stews, we roast large hunks of meat, we bake up a storm—cakes, breads, brownies, you name it—and we’re willing to tackle more challenging recipes because, hey, what else is there to do except stay warm by the oven? So don’t keep all your culinary explorations and accomplishments to yourself—tell the world, “I Made It!” (And by the world, we mean your family, friends, and social media peeps.) You just need to click the “I Made It” button, add a photo (hey, we all eat with our eyes!), hit “all done,” and—electronic fist bump—everyone knows you rock…

This dish is loaded with two kinds of meat and three types of melty cheese. 698 Instagram likes of Emily’s Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo last winter. Allrecipeeps have an appetite for Alfredos in…

coming up roses

This Valentine’s Day, show your love with flowers…tomato flowers. “It’s a simple yet amazing feat of vegetable sorcery,” says Chef John, Allrecipes’ cooking-video guru. It involves peeling a large cherry tomato and then rolling up the peel to create petals. “It serves absolutely no purpose,” he says. “But if you make a salad for your significant other and put this on the side, they’ll say, ‘You made a tomato rose. I love you.’ Or something like that.” See how to make the magic happen at Hotshot Tots Tater Tots are making a comeback, but they’re moving way beyond breakfast or cafeteria lunch trays. They’re filling in for tortilla chips in nachos (tot-chos), giving pepperoni a run for its money as a pizza topping (tot-zza), and making impressive appetizers (wrapped in bacon,…

14 hacks you need to know

FAST FIXES Clean it, set it. When Allstar Kim Mancuso unloads her dishwasher, she sets the table for the next meal. “That way you’re not putting dishes in the cabinets just to pull them out again later.” Be grateful. Several Allstars skip finely chopping things like potatoes, tomatoes, onions, and hard-boiled eggs into small pieces and instead shred them with a box grater. To clean the thing afterward? Use a pastry brush to sweep away remnants. Speed spuds. To save time on potato prep, Abbey Sisco keeps frozen hash browns on hand and tosses them into recipes calling for chopped or shredded potatoes. Traci Eshleman peels potatoes ahead of time (say, in the morning), then soaks them in cold water until she’s ready to cook. And Keri Palladino-Warner microwaves them to get a…
