sliding into spring

It’s one of the main reasons I was so excited for our Sandwiches, Burgers & Sliders contest (page 55). Readers sent in hundreds of stacked, smothered and sizzling ideas. I’ll admit, when I first saw our Grand Prize winner, I was iffy, but after one bite I was a really happy camper. We filled this issue with so many things to make us—and, hopefully, you—happy. The happiest thing I can think of is a really good cookie. Our Big & Buttery Chocolate Chip Cookies (page 46) are thick, a little chewy and chock-full of chocolate chips and toasted walnuts. Be sure to check out the tip for keeping unbaked cookies in the freezer—for when you really need a cookie fix and nothing else will do. When it comes to spring entertaining, nothing…

RECIPES ON P.76 & P.78 Don’t toss the stem ends—freeze them to use in soup. You know it’s officially spring when you spot fresh local asparagus in your grocery store or farmers market. While green asparagus grabs the most display space, be on the lookout for other colors, too. You might find white asparagus, which gets its creamy color from being blocked from sunlight as it grows, or the less-common purple variety, which has a fruitier, nuttier flavor because of its higher sugar content. CHOOSE SPEARS with dry, tight tips that don’t fan out. Steer clear of wilted or limp stalks. CUT ½ INCH OFF the bottom stems and stand them up in a jar containing 1 inch of water, or wrap the bunch in a damp paper towel and place in a plastic…

happy feet

The winter months can be tough on your feet. Before it’s time to break out your strappy sandals, why not give your feet a little TLC? This DIY milk bath is a quick, easy way to pamper your feet with common pantry ingredients. The lactic acid in milk is great for your skin, helping to heal and hydrate dry patches.

The finishing touch is baking soda, which serves as a gentle exfoliant to slough off dead skin. The end result? Sandal-ready feet, just in time for warmer weather! Soothing Milk Bath Pour 3-4 cups milk into a microwave-safe container. Use as much milk as needed to cover your feet. Heat until…
