If your creativity around Pop-Tarts begins and ends with a toaster, you need to get yourself to the Pop-Tarts Café in New York City immediately.
It's a pop-up café inside Kellogg's NYC, and it's only open until Feb. 26. The menu is filled with brilliant Pop-Tarts takes on your favorite foods. There's Pop-Tarts pizza and Chili Pop-Tarts fries — and that's only the beginning.

The café thought of everything beyond your wildest Pop-Tarts dreams. You can get three kinds of Pop-Tarts burritos: S'Mores, Nutty Caramel Banana, and Chocolate-Covered Strawberry, which are served with a side of condiments like kiwi "salsa," strawberry "salsa," and frosting "sour cream."

Green Salad With Shrimp, Beets, Sweet Pecans And Goat Cheese

foodiecrush
Wintertime salads like this one are every bit in season thanks to the always favorite combo of flavors of sweet glazed pecans, roasted beets and goat cheese that are always ready and available. And when fresh grilled shrimp is a topper, you’ve just made yourself an entire meal in one bowl. I love winter. I love the snow. I love the cocooning and snuggling and general laze winter allows us to justify. And while I’m still obsessively checking my Weather app and welcoming every prediction of snowfall as if it was the first of the season—thanks Punxsutawney Phil—I do have to admit I am missing myself some rays of warm sunshine. Here in Northern Utah the skies have either been weeping with snow, cloudy and gray, or...

Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

Butter chicken was reportedly developed in the early 20th century in Delhi as a way to use leftover tandoori chicken so that the dried out chicken pieces can be softened with tomatoes, butter, and cream. Butter chicken is usually creamier, while chicken tikka masala, which was developed in the UK, tends to be spicier.

Ingredients 6–8 SERVINGS Marinade ½ cup whole-milk Greek yogurt 4 garlic cloves, grated 1 tablespoon fenugreek leaves (optional) 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger 2 teaspoons kosher salt 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs Sauce And Assembly ½ cup (1 stick) cultured or unsalted butter, divided 1 3-inch cinnamon stick 5 green cardamom pods 1 whole clove 2 teaspoons fenugreek seeds (optional) 2 medium onions, sliced 2 serrano chiles, split lengthwise Kosher salt 4 garlic cloves, grated 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger 1 tablespoon fenugreek leaves...

Grilled Wedge Salad With Egg & Cranberry Feta

wedge-salad-6
i returned home yesterday to a denim-clad smiley faced eggboy, a very gleeful garden, and a garage that doesn't have a boat in it (i'm still not actually sure who the boat belonged to, if it actually works, and where it is now, but it was here since we moved in and despite how glamorous having a boat sounds, having a second parking spot feels equally if not more glamorous, especially when i'm still on the fence about the boat shoe trend). being home right now feels kind of like i just ran 10 miles and am about to eat a pizza. it's great and i sort of never want to leave, but at some point we're going to have to hit the...

The Trendy Appliance You Didn’t Know You Needed

020817-instant-pot-pressure-cooker-lead-2

This one pot wonder makes cooking faster, less messy and ultimately more rewarding.

Imagine a world in which you wake up to creamy steel-cut oatmeal with cinnamon apples and golden raisins. Envision a packed lunch of braised pork tacos paired with some spicy rainbow chard, and dinner ready and waiting in the fridge (hello, channa masala and Basmati rice). Now stop daydreaming and buy an Instant Pot.

It makes light and fluffy, or rich and creamy grains in less than 10 minutes. It braises meat to perfection, steams vegetables to a crisp-tender, and keeps your meals warm automatically. It’s like having your own personal sous chef who only dirties one pot.

Alex Lau

It's rare to find a recipe that's just like that one extremely soft and comfortable sweater everyone compliments you on even though you can't figure out why. You wore it because it's the closest to a Snuggie you could get away with at work, yet somehow people think you're really put-together. That's this recipe. It's warming, thanks to a subtle sprinkle of cardamom and a flood of coconut milk. It requires under 10 ingredients. And, best of all, it's a sophisticated weeknight vegetarian dinner that won't break your routine or the bank. Here's how this sweet-potato-and-collards bowl is done.
