How to Tailgate: The Best Salad Recipes

Some say it's a good tailgating salad that makes the party, rounding out all the other great dishes, like chili, brats, pie, and desserts. We kind of agree. A good, old-fashioned German Potato Salad or a Creamy version that is just a little lighter on the mayo sound to us like essential dishes for true-blue tailgating.

Brats! Brats! Get Your Grilled Bratwurst Here!

There's a big difference between a food that can be grilled and a food that's meant to be grilled. Take bratwurst: this sausage is tasty regardless of the preparation, but when grilled, bratwurst really reaches its full flavor potential. The skin becomes deliciously crisp while the interior stays juicy and succulent.

Coleslaw--From Quick to Quirky

10 Things You Didn't Know About...Using Your Dishwasher

If, like me, you ever spent a significant part of your adult life living without a dishwasher, then you'll know what I'm talking about: the indescribable feeling of supreme comfort and ease the first time you load your very first dishwasher after a big dinner, press that button and hear it hum to life. Whatever conflicted feelings we may have about technology, at that moment it seems like humanity couldn't possibly have come up with a more perfect invention (forget antibiotics or automobiles). For all the promise of microwaves, we may not be able to cook dinner with a touch of a button, but we can come close to cleaning up after dinner by pressing one.

A Craving for Cranberries

Betcha when you think "cranberries," you almost automatically think "sauce" -- and no doubt, cranberries do a noble job serving as the sweet-tart foil to Thanksgiving's main event: the turkey. But these ruby-red berries are incredibly versatile--they have a bright, fruit-forward flavor that lends itself to appetizers (especially those with mild cheese), drinks (from cocktails to refreshing teas and punches), side dishes (they add a nice crunch, color, and spark to rice), and desserts, where they play nicely with a whole host of other fruits and spices. Plus, that slight sourness is a boon when you're pairing the berries with ubersweet ingredients like apples, apricots, and peaches.

6 Surprising Broccoli Sides

There's no doubt broccoli is good for you--it's loaded with fiber, vitamin C, and other cancer-fighting compounds. And it's delicious all by itself, either steamed with a little bit of sweet-cream butter or roasted with a drizzle of olive oil. But don't get stuck in a broccoli rut!
