To get started, go to the Festive Feast scene from the Travel menu. Speak to her to be guided through the food preparation tasks she requires of you.
If you get lost, just click the question mark on the left side panel, or check back on your conversation with Ms. Claus in your private messages. Ms. Claus will be there in the Festive Feast scene every day until the end of December 24 UTC, so you can speak to her at any time.
For the first five dishes you create and share each day, Ms. Claus will give you Toy Parts from her special stash. Once you’ve created and shared 5 dishes in a day and received the maximum amount of Toy Parts from Ms. Claus, don’t worry, you can still continue to create new dishes but you just will not receive further Toy Parts from sharing meals on that day.
So while baking away and sharing with her or your friends, you can receive double the amount of Toy Parts just by having the wings in your inventory. These special wings can be accessed via the shop node next to Ms. Claus or Santa.
The cider loaf cake so crumby and apple-y it tastes like something straight from your local orchard’s farm stand. If you want to fill your kitchen with the smell of fresh-baked bread but you're nervous about shaping a Boyle or working with a starter, focaccia is the best place to begin.
If the spiced tomato paste has reduced and the pan starts getting dry and dark before the cabbage is ready, just add a splash of water to loosen and let it keep going. This cake is ideal for baking on the weekend and then eating a slice every evening (or morning) throughout the week.
Tomato paste, dried shiitake mushrooms, bomb, and a little of butter help to get you that rich umami-like effect. While many other methods count on pockets of butter and an angel’s touch for pull-apart flakiness, we weren't willing to leave it to chance.
Our simple folding technique manually multiplies the number of layers for guaranteed, no-risk success. We took loose inspiration from Taiwanese chicken rice to create this weeknight-friendly dish that retains the comforting and fragrant qualities of the beloved original.
It’s important that the beans are adequately hydrated: Once you start mashing, make sure there’s plenty of pasta cooking liquid in the pot and don’t let it evaporate. From easy side dishes like Melting Potatoes and Balsamic & Parmesan Cauliflower to dinners like Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers and Chicken Cutlets with Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce, these healthy and delicious recipes are the only things from 2020 we’re bringing into the new year.
This comforting and creamy slow-cooker soup is loaded with earthy, umami flavor from the mushrooms and soy sauce. Puréeing only some slow-cooker mushroom soup gives the dish complex texture and eye appeal.
Garnish with additional black pepper and chopped fresh thyme, if desired. The carrots cook together with aromatics like onions, garlic and fresh herbs before being puréed into a silky smooth soup that's delicious for dinner or packed up for lunch.
Then, adding a little broth at the end allows the potatoes to absorb the liquid, making the insides extra moist. These vegan sweet potato-black bean burgers spiced with curry powder are easy to make.
Blending the mixture with your hands gives you a soft, uniform texture then the outside gets crispy by cooking in a cast-iron pan. To make this recipe gluten-free too, use gluten-free oats and serve the patty in a lettuce wrap, omitting the bun.
Bacon, sour cream and sharp Cheddar cheese coat good-for-you cauliflower in deliciousness for an easy side that will make everyone actually want to eat their vegetables. This salad is a helpful tool for weight loss because it provides a good balance of fiber, protein and healthy fats from loads of veggies and beans, all tossed in a tangy apple-cider vinaigrette.
The flavorful oil they're packed in is used to sauté the chicken, and the tomatoes go into the cream sauce. The florets are cut into thick slices and tossed with extra-virgin olive oil and herbs.
Wherever the flat surfaces come into contact with the hot roasting pan, a deep browning occurs that results in a sweet, nutty flavor. Make a batch ahead and freeze for the days when you don't have time for your typical bowl of oatmeal.
Broccoli is roasted until brown and crispy, then topped with Parmesan cheese and balsamic vinegar for a savory and sweet flavor combination that can't be beaten. Tip: Preheating the pan helps the broccoli to brown and develop nutty flavors.

Lining your baking sheet with foil will protect your pan from the sticky honey-soy-garlic sauce, so cleanup will be a breeze too. An endless social world waiting for you.
Salon's own Ashlee Stevens captured our return to the kitchen early on in the pandemic. While we may desire more certainty about the world around us, we can at least be nurtured by the belief that we'll be eating dinner at home tomorrow night.
Here's the important thing: Done correctly, this is not some chocolate omelette, some tragic struggle brownie. This is not a brownie you stumble drunk into the kitchen and make because you've overridden your facility for choosing ingredients.
It's a multi-functional crowd pleaser that's great for breakfast with a cup of coffee, in the afternoon with tea or as a snack all on its own. In a Sept. 3 press release, Taco Bell announced that it would be discontinuing some of its most beloved items, including the iconic Mexican Pizza.
Even though the fast-food chain discontinued the iconic menu item, you can still make a DIY-version at home thanks to Stevens. It's simple and probably healthier than what you'd get in the drive-through (but don't let that stop you from slathering it with any lingering packets of Taco Bell Fire Sauce you have stashed in your kitchen).
You can make these Three-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies from stuff you have in your kitchen right now and eat them within half an hour of getting a notion to bake something. What you'll wind up with are the sort of elevated treats hungry Manhattans used to pay good money for, but with an undeniably homey touch.
They are luscious when sprinkled with a bit of sea salt, but Williams encourages you to restrain yourself here from adding a lot of modifications and additions. Bake these when you depleted and tired and need a bit of sweetness and comfort, and let them make you feel cared for and a little more fortified.
Let us put it this way: You could be eating something really delicious (Three-Ingredient Frozen Yogurt) and relatively soon without feeling like you've been spiritually broken by a small kitchen appliance. You can dollop it with sweetened whipped cream, chocolate panache, jam (very sophisticated) or just a puff of confectioner's sugar.
Who never stopped finding clever ways to share, to celebrate and to create sweetness. These bars from Carry are three layers of fall bliss, each of which magnifies the flavor of the apples as they bake.
It's a snack whose main ingredients you can pick up at the checkout aisle and a cake that's truly fit for a king. When Bastian appeared on “Salon Talks,” she also revealed the secret to elevating bolognese at home.
Salon Food readers went wild over her recipe for the perfect homemade sauce, every time. Bastian recommends serving your pasta with grated Grand Padang in a bowl for the dinner table.
The question of a good bolognese is the steps: the onions, the soffriggere, the little of carrots, little bay leaves, rosemary, cloves and so on down the line. Cinnamon, ground cloves, light brown sugar and freshly-grated nutmeg work together to create a depth of warmth and flavor.
