It's convenient to pick up some laundry detergent at the store, but it's not difficult to create your own.
The yin and yang of spring make it such an interesting season. After the brutal bite of winter, even a gloomy spring day can lift our spirits with warmer breezes and an emerging palette of delicate hues — those first tinges of new greens, a fuzzy gray bud, a brushstroke of crocus blue. Then, as the season really plants its feet, fresh bright color starts popping up all over.
This past summer I fell in love with a kitchen gadget that has been relatively slow to catch on in the U.S. — the mandoline.
I've always been a big fan of eggplant Parmesan. There are a bunch of ways to make this classic Italian dish, but I'm partial to what you might call the full-fat version: thick slices of breaded eggplant that are sauteed, then baked until creamy, and finally topped with tomato sauce and melted cheese.
It’s easy to imagine how the pitch for “Non-Stop,” the latest action thriller starring Liam Neeson, went down. “Okay, guys, how about this? It’s ‘Taken,’ but on an airplane!” The surprise is that “Non-Stop” not only could have been a sequel to “Taken,” but it’s also everything “Taken 2” should have been. The film finds Neeson is a familiar role in a plot that mixes together elements of “Air Force One,” “Flightplan,” and various Hitchcockian thrillers. While this sort of thing has been done before, the result is just fresh enough to stand out from all the rest.

Whether you'll be hosting a crowd or watching solo, Oscar night calls for dinner with a bit of panache.
My favorite thing about fancy parties? They almost always include a shrimp cocktail appetizer — platters of giant, plump shrimp just waiting to be dunked into a piquant cocktail sauce.
What to serve at this year's Oscar party? I had no clear idea about the right dish until I glanced at a list of the movies in contention.
An Oscar viewing party should be the culinary antithesis of a Super Bowl gathering. Where the latter focuses on big, bold, messy flavors tied together with a whole lot of fat, the Academy Awards call for a more refined dining experience (even if both events are spent on the same couch in front of the same television).
There are bakers and there are cooks. It takes a chemist's love of precision to be a baker. Me? I'm a cook.
ISLA MUJERES, Mexico — A half-hour ferry ride from the nonstop party that is Cancun sits an island seductively named Isla Mujeres, or Island of Women.
Borscht is woefully underappreciated in America. This classic dish from Russia (and much of Eastern Europe, in fact) not only is a great way to eat a ton of vegetables, it also can be incredibly delicious.
If your daily route takes you through Tempe, there’s a fresh, new choice for healthful morning and afternoon pick-me-ups.
All of the holiday merriment has been delectable; unfortunately like anything else, too much of a good thing has left me with a food hangover. Thankfully, Tempe is full of fresh eats and green restaurants that make detoxing delicious.
Is there a chip dip in the world that isn't wonderful? No matter what the flavor, at heart most are tubs of sour cream or melted cheese. Few foods are more satisfying.
Jackie Evancho, a 13-year-old classical crossover star who debuted on the national stage on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” seems to only get bigger and better with age.
This simple, one-skillet dinner needs neither much time nor skill to deliver rich, deep flavors. And it all starts with that most ubiquitous of American meats — the boneless, skinless chicken breast.
Fantasizing about throwing a big holiday bash but fearful you'll spend the whole party — or worse, the whole week — in the kitchen prepping? We've got you covered.

With the holidays getting into full swing, life for most of us is getting hectic. Between all the big meals, the parties, the kids needing treats for their classes, never mind our day jobs...! Who has time for it all?

Thanksgiving can be a landmine of a meal. Creative cooks who tinker too aggressively with classic recipes may find themselves at the head of a table of disgruntled diners.
Maybe the tough early schedule is finally paying off.
