If You Love Steel-Cut Oats, You Need to Know This Hack

913b3e1cfabd2043_Trail_Mix_Oatmeal

Did you know you could use your Instant Pot to make breakfast? The I Love My Instant Pot Recipe Book ($17) by Michelle Fagone, out April 1, includes a recipe for steel-cut oats that cook up in 10 minutes. Given that steel oats usually take at least 30 minutes to cook on the stovetop, this is a huge time saver. There's no excuse to skip breakfast! Michelle suggests sweetening the oats with orange juice, dried fruit, and maple syrup. Mmm!

You Only Need 1 Bowl To Make This Cherry Upside-Down Cake

0317-ba-basics-upside-down-cake-beauty-28
Let’s get the introductions out of the way. I’m the food director at Bon Appétit, which technically means I have final say over every recipe we print in the magazine and online, but that doesn’t mean I’m the best cook in the kitchen. And when it comes to baking, I’m good, but I’m not “Claire Saffitz Good.” This is a woman who makes puff pastry from scratch and does things with sourdough starter that I will never understand. But when she swore up and down that this upside down cake was really really easy and impossible to mess up, I believed her, because Claire Saffitz is not a liar. And I can now vouch for this recipe 100% and affirm...

GettyImages-2779680

We’re just gonna come right out and say it: We love coffee. Whether it’s wine coffee, a java-themed lip kit, the world’s most expensive cup, or a simple $1 brew, we love it all. It’s a fact McDonald’s must be in on, as the fast food giant (which was recently in the news for all the wrong reasons when its Twitter account was hacked) is getting ready to roll out not one, not two, but THREE new espresso-based creations.

GettyImages-2779680
Currently being tested in the Sacramento, Stockton, and Modesto areas of Northern California (we’re beyond jealous), the potential menu additions include: a hot and iced Caramel Macchiato (espresso, caramel-flavored syrup, and steamed milk, topped with caramel drizzle), a French Vanilla Cappuccino (essentially the...

You Need This Tool for Grilling Season and Beyond

031717-grilling-tool-lead
These claws are the triple threat your kitchen needs right now. Summer is upon us. You know what that means: barbecue, y’all, and lots of it. Long days and longer weekends call for dinners straight from the grill and midsummer parties with all the neighbors. We’re dusting off the grill (which has been hibernating patiently all winter), and soon, we’ll be lighting it up to grill some tender, flavorful, fall-off-the-bone meats. In preparation for grilling season, we’ve been unboxing our tried and true tools—basting wand for sauces, check; meat thermometer, check—but we realized that we’d forgotten one important tool. Or perhaps we should say tools, because these come in pairs. The tool in question is a pair of barbecue shredders. Not just...

The Fast Track For Juicy Pork Chops

0317-ba-basics-juicy-seared-pork-chops-13
Pork chops seem like a great dinner idea in theory—they’re widely available and they cook quickly if you buy the thin ones (not the thick, fancy butcher shop ones). All of this means you can go from work to any-old-supermarket to food-in-your-belly pretty fast. But there’s a catch, because—like that free vacation in the Bahamas you got a voicemail about—if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. The catch is that pork chops can dry out easily. But not if you do it this way. The geniuses in the BA Test Kitchen came up with a method that prevents drynessin a few ways: By searing the chop on one side, rather than both, you're giving the meat less...

This 4-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe Actually Works

6f867c8a_patrick-food-4ingredientPeanutButterCookieRecipe
When I first saw this video for Southern Living's four-ingredient peanut butter cookies, I couldn't conceal my skepticism. How could you possibly make cookies from peanut butter, egg, sugar, and vanilla extract alone?! It seemed suspiciously too easy, but I had to try it out! With so many friends and family members on gluten-free and dairy-free diets, I figured if the recipe did work, I could make a lot of people happy. Unlike other fussier cookie recipes, all the ingredients are dumped and mixed together, and due to the high fat content in the peanut butter, the dough balls can be shaped in a hot second without sticking to your fingers (or a spring-form scooper). As promised, the cookies bake up...
