“I love serving warm croissants to my guests for breakfast when we’re at Skylands. To save time, I buy a box from Petrossian to freeze, so we can enjoy them fresh out of the oven with butter and homemade jam before we set out for the day.” —Martha FREEZE-AHEAD CROISSANTS Buy or make a batch of your favorite croissants. Keep them in the bakery box to preserve the shape, or place them in freezer bags and put in the freezer. When ready to eat, preheat oven to 325°. Create a pouch of foil a little larger than combined size of all croissants being reheated; line with parchment. Arrange croissants inside so they are not overlapping. Heat about 15 minutes; serve warm.…

let’s do this

THE OLDER I GET, the more I’m convinced that I won the lottery when it comes to mothers. My mom has been my constant support, not only cooking for me, cleaning for me, and containing herself during my most trying teen years, but teaching me countless lessons outside of school—from the basics (“use good butter”) to master-class material (“if in doubt, do without” when shopping for literally anything). In her soft and subtle way, she’s always pushed me to go out into the world and try new things. She’s a doer through and through. The issue in your hands has a similar roll-up-your-sleeves, can-do spirit. It’s filled with DIY ideas both big and small to help you design the life you want, whether you’re after more delicious meals, a home…

a feast for the senses

A FEW YEARS AGO I TRAVELED to Dubai to launch our weddings magazine there. It was my very first visit to that part of the world, and I was enchanted with the desert, the markets, the hustle and bustle of the fast-growing cities and towns—the intense activity everywhere. Since that first trip I have been lucky enough to spend time in Qatar as well as Abu Dhabi, and have tasted many of the region’s local dishes. Last year my friend Youssef El-Deeb called to ask if I would like to do a cooking series about foods of the Arabian Gulf. His directive: Take traditional dishes of the region and make them a bit lighter, healthier, and less caloric for a show modeled on what we do here in the States for…

the staples

Dates Used in sweet and savory dishes, Medjool are among the largest and most tender variety (oasisdate.com). Grains Basmati rice, freekeh (roasted young wheat), and cracked wheat are used in many cooking techniques (kalustyans.com). Labneh This thick yogurt (available at many grocery stores) can be made by straining Greek yogurt. Nuts Store cashews, pistachios, and pine nuts in the freezer to extend their shelf life (nuts.com). Spices For more intense flavor, toast and grind them just before using (kalustyans.com). WHAT IS GHEE? It’s a type of clarified butter with a caramelized flavor, and it is simple to make: Melt 1 pound unsalted butter over medium-low heat. Cook until milk solids turn golden brown (push aside foam to check color), 15 minutes; remove from heat. Strain, let cool completely, and refrigerate in a sealed jar up to 6 months. (You can also…

and . . . fade-out

Fresh Ideas to Elevate the Everyday Goody Bags The best things may come in small packages, but a thoughtful wrapper can be a gift all its own. Tuck jewelry or candies into one of our colorful DIY leather pouches for a two-inone treat your loved one can keep and tie to a tote strap (perfect for corralling earbuds or lip balm). Using a circle cutter, cut out a four-to-seven-inch round piece of leather (size it for the item you want to enclose), then add holes an inch apart around the edge with a screw punch. Thread cord through all the holes, then feed the ends through one more hole each, to create the loose tie needed to cinch the pouch closed. Slip a surprise inside, and pull the ends tight. Lambskin leather,in Bright…
