how to roast pumpkin seeds

It's the fall routine you remember as a kid: After picking the perfect pumpkins at a local farm, you'd spread crinkly newspapers on the kitchen table.

Growing up in the South, I was served biscuits at breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Each family and restaurant has their own specific way of making them. Some are skinny and tall, others flat and wide, and some come nestled together like Parker House rolls in cast-iron pans. Served with butter or jam, smothered with gravy or topped with ham and cheese or a piece of fried chicken, biscuits are as Southern as bourbon, collards and mac and cheese.

Like other varieties of winter squash, butternut squash is packed with antioxidants and fiber. This is your one-stop guide for how to shop for and store butternut squash, delicious ways to cook it, and why it's so good for you.

Cardamom Coffee Is the Cozy Brew We're Craving Right Now

Every few years, when I'm lucky enough to visit my friend in the Hamptons, I make sure that we have time to stop at Hampton Chutney Co. in Amagansett, a tiny little South Indian takeout shop that cooks up dosas—large, crispy crêpes—wrapped around savory fillings (they also have two locations in NYC). We go for the breakfast dosa, but I leave dreaming about the cardamom coffee.

How to Cook Tofu So You'll Actually Like It

Tofu may be a diet staple for vegetarians and vegans, but to many others the blocks of soy found in the grocery store's produce section can be a daunting, mysterious ingredient. Why choose tofu in the first place?

In addition to protein, tofu is a rich source of fiber, iron, calcium and more. It also contains much less saturated fat than many animal protein sources. It's low in calories and happens to be cholesterol-free, gluten-free and dairy-free—good news for those following gluten-free or vegan diets.
