For a perfect Easter celebration, turn spring cupcakes into edible 'bunnies' and 'chicks'

A cupcake is just a blank canvas for delicious creativity. I wanted to make cute, Easter-worthy treats that would take these little blank canvases into spring. I thought I would stop with the fluffy Easter bunnies, but I couldn’t resist some little yellow chicks as well.

Breakfast: Does eating a morning meal matter for health?

Some people may find nutrition information frustrating in part because of seemingly conflicting messages in the media and other sources related to what to eat. One area of “controversy” is the idea that skipping breakfast has negative consequences for weight management and health indicators such as blood pressure or cholesterol levels. These potential negative impacts could be concerning in that results from a large population study suggest that skipping breakfast is common among American adults, with 18 percent self-reporting skipping the morning meal.

Make an easy dinner with Chicken-Cauliflower Roast

One of my favorite things about working in test kitchens over the years are "family meals." We took the term from restaurants. Just before the evening rush starts in a restaurant, the kitchen staff will make and sit down to what they call a family meal. It's usually made from leftovers in the big walk-in refrigerators the industrial kitchens have. Sometimes these meals are more epic than the dishes served on the restaurant menus.

The benefits of regular physical activity are numerous and include support for reaching and maintaining a healthy weight, reducing risk for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, maintaining bone health and even boosting mood and mental health.

What is 'normal' eating?

Everyone seems to have an opinion about what you should be eating, how you should eat it, and when. The lure of diets can be intoxicating — promising quick, easy and drastic results.

Spice up your holiday gift-giving with Krisp Kringle

Krisp Kringle is a crunchy cinnamon-coated popcorn and a red-hot spicy change from peppermint during the holidays. It is a favorite among my family members and is easier to make than traditional popcorn balls. One pot, a large bowl, your microwave and an air popper are all you need to whip up three gallons of tasty, buttery, cinnamon goodness. The crispness comes from a short bout in the oven. I like mine plain, but my husband prefers his drizzled with melted white chocolate, which reduces the spiciness.
