Benefits of meal subscriptions

Meal kits have gained popularity primarily due to their exceptional convenience, streamlining the home cooking experience by delivering precisely measured ingredients alongside recipes. This trend saw a surge during the height of the pandemic driven by the desire to avoid crowded grocery stores and relish restaurant-quality meals from the comfort of home. Services like HelloFresh offer pre-made meals for people seeking a time-saving option.

Despite perceptions of higher costs, meal kits can indeed be a more economical choice compared to dining out or frequent takeout. Larger households can also benefit from bulk order discounts.

Additionally, they foster healthier eating habits through portion-controlled servings and emphasize the use of fresh, nutritious ingredients. Catering to specific dietary needs further enhances their appeal.

This viral trick may be the (stinky) key to separating eggs quickly and easily
There's a scientific reason this trick works so well. But don't blame us for the smelly fingers.
Raw, eggs in bowl

Separating eggs is one of those common things we have to do when preparing any number of dishes. From egg white omelets to beautifully rich chocolate cakes, we're often called upon to separate two things that seem to be hell-bent on set on staying together — the egg yolk and the egg white. And while it's devastating breaking up two things that, in many ways, are beautiful together, sometimes it's best if they just part amicably and go their separate ways.

There are numerous tricks when it comes to separating eggs, and if we're honest, most of them don't work the way they're promised. Still, we struggle. We clumsily try to use our fingers as sieves, or the eggshell itself as a haphazard and jagged divider. We dirty up our slotted spoons, doing nothing but busting the yolk in the process and ruining the whole thing. There are even gadgets dedicated to this one and only kitchen task. And while many of them are adorable kitchen counter adornments, typically, we aren't fans of single-use kitchen tools around here. And so, the struggle continues. Until now.

How to age fish at home (your new favorite hobby)
Aging can enhance and preserve the flavor of fish. Here's how the pros do it
how to age fish PABU

You’ve definitely heard of aging beef and curing pork into charcuterie goodness before, but maybe you’re not familiar with another protein that can be aged to texture and flavor perfection: fish. While the aging process for fish is typically much shorter than that of meat (think 24 hours compared to three weeks), letting it rest before cooking or serving it as sushi gives it a more toothsome texture and deeper, richer flavor.

To learn more about how to age fish and why it’s so beneficial, we turned to Ben Steigers, the executive chef at Boston’s PABU. The restaurant has since closed, but it specialized in traditional izakaya, like seasonal small plates, tempura, house-made tofu, and fresh sushi and sashimi, some of which was made even more delicious by employing aging techniques. If you want to try it for yourself, follow Steigers’ careful instructions on how to age fish at home.
