A bunch of teenagers about to graduate high school in Japan have been sharing photos of the last lunch bentos their parents made for them, and it’s absolutely adorable. I am a person who cries very easily, and I must warn my fellow easy-criers that they might need a tissue, because some of these lunch boxes made me cry almost as much as the latest episode of This Is Us.

One of the coolest things about being an adult (I use that term loosely) is to see foods that used to take a backseat to other showstoppers finally get their time in the spotlight. When I was younger, cauliflower was just a thing on a relish tray at parties. It might have made an appearance from a bag in the frozen aisle, but it wasn’t used in a million different creative ways like it is these days.
To celebrate all that is cauliflower, here are 10 recipes you have to try right now!

Don’t have a kitchen island? Want one? Depending on your space and style, you can probably DIY a totally unique one using something from a local antique store or that you already have at home. You might need to add some legs, casters, or a new top, but those things are relatively simple to do.
Keep reading to get some great ideas and a list of things that can be repurposed into kitchen islands.

Baking sheets (aka sheet pans) are now touted as the miracle cookware that can cook your whole dinner, but what about breakfast?

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (aka BSCBs) — is there anything more boring? They are all too often overcooked until dry and chewy, and I generally prefer more succulent boneless, skinless thighs. But for lunch and dinner favorites like chicken Caesar salad and chicken pasta, sliced juicy chicken breasts can’t be beat. They’re a great staple for quick lunches, too.
Fortunately I have one method that makes unfailingly juicy and tender boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Need some chicken for a salad, or to top some pasta? This is the method. It takes some trust, but believe me — it works flawlessly every single time.

At first glance, Trader Joe’s and Costco couldn’t be more different. TJ’s stores are fun, quirky, and smaller than most supermarkets. Costco is the complete opposite — utilitarian and truly cavernous in size. Yet they actually have a lot in common. For example, both are known for carrying a wide array of organic foods, and both are known for offering some of the lowest prices in the industry.
Of course, shopping at Costco means buying, say, four pounds of quinoa instead of one, which requires a bigger up-front investment both in terms of money and pantry space. Which is a better deal? Can Costco’s bulk prices beat Trader Joe’s ounce for ounce?

It’s not the first time you’ve heard a friend tell you they’re “going keto,” in the same casual tone that they might also tell you they’re going to Trader Joe’s or Target. But the mechanism of the diet itself is a lot less casual, and more intense than most people realize.
The ketogenic diet has an interesting evolution, with a medical history that dates back to the 1920s. The diet was originally designed as a way to treat epilepsy in children. It worked — or at least helped — and has since been adapted for use in other neurological disorders, sleep disorders, bipolar disorder, autism, and even brain cancer. It’s favored among celebrities, Silicon Valley techies, and other social media influencers who tout the tasty fat-burning regimen, but it’s also one of today’s most Googled, top Pinterest performing diets that’s likely flooding your Instagram feed, too.
Eat more beef, butter, and bacon, while losing weight and potentially boosting brain, mood, and sleep benefits, too? It’s easy to see why some are so quick to sign the dotted line.

When you’ve been living with the same kitchen for years and you don’t have the budget to change it — or are a renter and can’t do much, anyway — it’s easy to feel bored and uninspired by the space. And winter is the time we start to fixate on the kitchen (you know, because we’re spending more time indoors looking at the things that drive us nuts!).
While you might not be able to make a big change, there are a few little things you can do that will energize the space and make you love it a little more.
