Treat Valentine's Day Like a Dinner Party for Two

No one should go to a restaurant for Valentine’s day dinner this year, but that does not mean you should resign yourself to eating out of styrofoam takeout clamshells or greasy pizza boxes. (Eating the pizza directly from the box is a hack—just not a hack for romance.) Whether you’re cooking your meal or phoning it…Read more...

How to Reboot Family Dinnertime This Year

In many ways, the pandemic has forced families to slow down to a pace that felt impossible a year ago. I can remember, last March, staring at the large wall calendar that hangs in my kitchen. One by one, we’d crossed out basketball practices, soccer games, playdates, and family get-togethers until all that was left…Read more...

Takeout Take Away

Chinese food is one of the most popular worldwide simply because it boasts such incredible breadth and depth. There are eight primarily styles of cuisine that fall under this umbrella term, each with its own flavor affinities and specialties. Even if you only eat “Chinese food” every day of the week, you would never run out of options. Certainly, you’d never get bored. Cantonese is one of the most common styles found in America, blending a delicate interplay between sweet and sour, with more b...

Trick Your Kids into Eating Meals by Calling Them 'Big Snacks'

My son is a person down to eat dinner basically at any point. It’s just before 10 a.m. as I write these words, and I bet he’d be game to eat dinner right now if I asked him. (He’d be surprised at the offer, but I’m almost certain that surprise would quickly be replaced by excitement.) This isn’t the case for all kids,…Read more...

Stop Calling Kids 'Picky Eaters'

Life is all about growing and learning and morphing (or attempting to morph) into the best possible versions of ourselves.

Kroger, one of America’s largest grocery chains, experiments with ghost kitchens and delivery in the Midwest

The Kroger Co., one of the biggest grocery chains in the Midwest is dipping its toe into on-demand delivery and the ghost kitchen craze through a partnership with an Indianapolis-based startup, ClusterTruck. Supermarkets would seem to be logical places to site the kinds of ghost kitchens that have caught investor’s eye over the past few years and it wouldn’t be the first time that business models from startup companies bubbled up into large national brands, who are better positioned to capitaliz...

Have Ice Cream for Dinner This Week

This past weekend, my favorite local ice cream shop was promoting its annual batch of giant, homemade apple dumplings with ice cream, as well as extra large Belgian waffle ice cream sandwiches.

Take These Free Digital Cooking Classes With Your Kids

A couple of months into the pandemic, my 9-year-old son looked at me and said, “Maybe I’ll get into cooking.” He’s helped me bake since he was a preschooler but we’d never really cooked together because weeknights were always so rushed with school and work and activities. Not so much at the moment.Read more...

How Do I Get My Kid to Stay Seated During Mealtimes?

Every parent has their particular point of contention: a thing that should be simple—and is simple for other parents—yet it never comes easily for them. A kid that’s never tired at bedtime. A child who flat-out hates the car seat from day one. The toddler who refuses to sit in a stroller, No Matter What. And, of…Read more...

Many great stories begin with soup. Soup can soothe the soul, fortify the infirm, nourish the hungry, and uplift the cast down. It can be just about anything ladled into a bowl and eaten with a spoon; hot or cold, thick or thin, based on vegetables, fruits, nuts, noodles, or just straight cheese. Splendid Spoon also begins, and ends, with soup. Founded on the healing principle of the bottomless bowl, it’s a plant‑based meal program that delivers ready-to‑eat brews, blends, and even bowls.

Sculpted Meals So Beautiful That You’ll Starve Rather Than Disturb Them

It's Time to Check Your School's Lunch Debt Policy

School lunches—and the policies that shame the kids of parents who have lunch debt—are in the news again. A school in New Jersey is reportedly now banning students from extra-curricular activities, such as dances and field trips, if their parents owe more than $75. It’s a terrible policy that replaces its previous…Read more...

As meal-kit melee stretches on, Sun Basket whips up $30M Series E

Sun Basket, a provider of a healthy meal kit delivery service, has raised another $30 million in venture capital funding. The round, led by PivotNorth Capital, brings the company’s total raised to $125 million. The Series E funding delays Sun Basket’s expected initial public offering once again. There’s been unsubstantiated talk of a Sun Basket float for quite some time; in fact, before Blue Apron and Hello Fresh, a pair of fellow meal kit delivery businesses, completed IPOs, Sun Basket was t...

Do You Really Need to Eat Breakfast? 

What matters most in nutrition is that you eat (1) at all, (2) a reasonable amount, and (3) food that is at least healthy-ish. The exact timing of your meals is not a huge deal, and there is no galactic scoreboard on which you’ll be made to reckon with the number of times you skipped breakfast. Read more...

How I Meal Plan on a Budget

Keep your mouth - and your wallet - full.This May, I was faced with a new dilemma. After seventeen years living in my parents' house, and two years living on campus, I was on my own for the first time. This came with a whole new set of responsibilities, from paying rent, to taking out my own trash, to cleaning my own bathroom. But the one that I dealt with most often was having to fend for my own food. I had to buy my own groceries (which I did every week), pack my own lunches, and make my own d...
