  1. Using Leftover Cookie Dough

    Hide

    When scraps of dough get left behind after cookies hit the oven, turn them into a quick and tasty "streusel" topping for other baked goods, says pastry chef Chris Broberg.

    Form the extra raw cookie dough into a ball and freeze. Then, simply grate the frozen dough with a box grater over muffins, coffee cakes, cobblers, or other sweet treats.

    Here's another idea: Instead of freezing the dough, try baking the leftover dough strips then crushing them up to use as a crunchy topping for ice cream sundaes.

  2. Parfait Breakfast

    Hide

    If you let them, your kids would eat ice-cream sundaes for breakfast. Offer them the next best thing: sundaes made with yogurt, cereal, granola, and fresh fruit layered in tall sundae glasses and eaten with long spoons. For special occasions, such as the morning after the big slumber party, lay out a parfait buffet and let kids make their own.

  3. Steaming Artichokes

    Hide

    Once you've done a bit of trimming, these odd-looking vegetables are actually a cinch to steam. Serve them with one or more of our dipping sauces.

    Steaming Artichokes
    1. Prepare 4 artichokes, 10 to 12 ounces each. Place in a steamer basket set in a large pot, with water level just below basket.

    2. Cover; steam until stem is easily pierced with tip of a paring knife, adding more water to pot as needed, 25 to 35 minutes (depending on size).

    Professional-looking wedding cakes are a snap, no matter where you are, thanks to these delightful edible cherry blossoms in a box.

    Handcrafted from sugar paste and royal icing, these blooms provide a beautiful, budget-friendly way to bring a plain-white tiered cake -- frosted with either buttercream or fondant -- to new heights.

  5. How-To

    Carve a Rack of Lamb

    Hide

    Once the lamb has finished cooking, let it rest for at least 10 minutes (this will allow the juices to redistribute).

    1. Hold Two Rib Bones 

    To slice each rack into chops, hold the ends of two neighboring rib bones upright at one end of the rack. 

    2. Cut Between the Ribs
