Want easy elegance for an Oscars party? Go with crostini

They sound simple. Crostini, that is. Slices of bread that have been brushed with olive oil and toasted, then topped with something that need be no more complex than a sprinkle of salt and a generous rub with a fresh garlic clove. Of course, something more complex is nice, too. I'm talking to you, tomato and Parmesan and anchovy.

A microwaved muffin in a mug may be just the treat you need

I'm not sure how it happened, but the microwave mug muffin is suddenly an internet sensation. I'm a believer in making muffins in large batches and freezing, so I admit I've only taken interest in the individually-made microwave version recently.

Doing Valentine's Day right with have-it-your-way doughnuts

Most everybody loves fresh, warm doughnuts. But most everybody doesn't love the hassle of making those fresh, warm doughnuts. It's a messy process that involves making a dough that can be temperamental. Who has time for that on Valentine's Day?

Do Valentine's Day your own way with chai spice truffles

Valentine's Day can throw the best of us into a wild panic. How to show the one you love the way you feel without succumbing to cliches? You know what I mean — booking a table at a romantic restaurant for the set steak dinner with a side of heavy breathing couples, or buying a bunch of roses on the way home. Always lovely, but never original.

Oysters are perfect for romance. And perfect to eat at home

One of Valentine's Day's enduring customs is to launch the annual Feast of Love with a dozen raw oysters on the half shell washed down with a chilled bottle of bubbly. The briny bivalves have long enjoyed a reputation as an aphrodisiac.

Like some heat with your sweet? Try Mexican-spiced brownies

Mexican hot chocolate is a beloved beverage made from chocolate (no surprise there) combined with cinnamon and another spice or two to bring up the heat. The combination of spicy and chocolate just plain works, and I wanted to see how it would translate into another beloved treat, the good old American brownie. Again, it just plain worked.

Keep the crisp, lose the labor in these Super Bowl wings

Come Super Bowl Sunday, we all love a heaping platter of wings. They've got to be crunchy. They've got to be a little bit greasy. They've got to be so delicious we can't stop eating even after we know we've eaten too many.

Liver for the Super Bowl? No! But bacon-wrapped dates? Yes!

It's hard for me to believe that this year marks the 50th Super Bowl. And food has become such an essential part of this event, I can't help but wonder what was on the menu back when it all got started!

Don't just dip. For serious Super Bowl comfort food, hot dip

Hosting a horde of fans for the Super Bowl? Or are you crashing somebody's party and tasked with bringing something delicious? Either way, you could spend a lot of time thinking about what to prepare. Or you could just make this and know beyond any doubt that you had picked a crowd-pleaser.
