  1. Pasta Skeletons

    Hide

    Kids can bone up on anatomy and create a fun Halloween decoration at the same time when they make a skeleton out of noodles. With an illustration of a skeleton as a guide, they just need lots of dried pasta, white glue, and construction paper to assemble the pictures. We snapped some of the pasta in half and used alphabet-soup noodles to make labels.

  2. Emeril's Gumbo Z'Herbes

    Hide

    Folks enjoy this satisfying Louisiana gumbo during winter, particularly when they're trying to recover from months of rich holiday foods. Each cook has his or her preferred version. I like mine with a small amount of meat added for flavoring, and I love the combo of collards and mustard greens. The story goes that for each type of green in it, a new friend will be made in the coming year, so feel free to throw some of your favorite greens into the pot and make some more friends!

  3. Cheese Plate Presentation

    Hide

    Transform a basic white platter (this one's from cb2.com) into a cheese board for your next party.

    For the best balance and presentation, choose cheeses with a range of appearances, flavors, and textures. We added pistachios, fruit, and fig cake.

  4. Lighter Than Air Mashed Potatoes

    Hide

    For fluffier mashed potatoes, try this: After boiling and draining the spuds, return them to the pot. Stir over low heat for several minutes, until all the moisture has evaporated, and then mash as usual.
