62 Professional Cooks Explain What Common Mistakes Amateurs Make And How To Avoid Them

Eating is loads of fun, but in order to do that, you’ve got to get off the couch and cook (let’s pretend that ordering pizza isn’t an option). The good news is that cooking can be incredibly enjoyable and it will put your creativity and dexterity to the test.

Luckily, the internet is full of helpful professionals. These cooks are sharing some of their wisdom with amateurs and helping them avoid the most basic, common mistakes that some of us are guilty of. Personally, I overcrowd the...

This focaccia isn’t your garden-variety flatbread recipe

In kitchens across the world, focaccia gardens are blooming. On top of the flatbreads, cherry tomatoes open like petals, with long scallion stalks for stems. Yellow-pepper sunflowers stand tall with Kalamata olives at their center. Red onions bud in bushes made from fresh herbs. As pandemic activities on social media go, this one might just be the prettiest.

During a spring when so many of us are confined, decorating them allows many bakers to bring the outdoors inside by tending these edible gardens. “It’s cathartic and therapeutic,” said Teri Culletto, a home baker in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts,...

I’ve been making this chicken probably every other week for over 5 years now. And yes, it’s taken that long for me to share it here on the website. This recipe is another favorite from The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook. However, I use the chicken in so many other recipes, I decided it was past time to share the original here. You only need a few minutes to get this chicken ready to cook and you’ll be sitting down to eat just ten minutes later. The chicken is great on its own with a side of raw vegetables and ranch dip. It can also be sliced thin for sandwiches, or chopped bite-size for soups, salads, or pasta. How To Make Last...

Easy Bread Bowl Recipe Ideas for Dinner Tonight

There is never a bad time to serve Bread Bowls for dinner, but with fall here and winter coming, this is the perfect season to start. Bread Bowls are great for all kinds of recipe ideas. They are great crowd pleasers filled with dips, but the family can enjoy them for breakfast, filled with soup, filled with stews and all kinds of comforting meals.

I personally love baking fresh bread at home. Not everyone does. If you fall into that category, I am sure there is a...
