  1. Dessert Party Favors

    Hide

    Leftover dessert doubles as guest favors when packaged in boxes that are as pretty as, well, pie. Photocopy template at 400 percent; trace onto card stock. Cut out the image with scallop scissors along scalloped edges and regular scissors on solid lines. With a straightedge and a bone folder, score paper along dotted lines. Fold along scored lines, and secure tabs with double-sided tape. Line box with parchment paper, place a slice inside, and tie on a tag.

  3. The Aquarius

    Hide

    This is the dawning of the age of bourbon. The spirit is having its moment, thanks to the rise of small distilleries producing top-notch, well-aged bourbon. This month, instead of a cocktail, our birthday drink consists of one special ingredient: smooth, handcrafted Woodford Reserve. "I don't like to mix this with anything," says Jennifer Aaronson, Living's food editorial director. "You could -- it would make a killer Manhattan. But it's ideal for sipping."

  4. Emeril's Turkey Bolognese

    Hide

    Here's my take on the classic Italian meat sauce: I've lightened it up a bit by using turkey instead of the usual pork and beef. The flavor still shouts "Italy!" and it will delight everyone, from Italian-food traditionalists to those who are monitoring what they eat. I began making this sauce years ago, when one of my daughters swore off red meat. Now, even I'm a convert to this healthier alternative.

  5. Heart-Shaped Appetizers

    Hide

    Dining at home this February 14? For a romantic prelude or finale to the meal, serve dried Calimyrna figs. When cut lengthwise, they look like little hearts. They're a sweet complement to cheeses, crusty breads, and salads. An added benefit: Figs are packed with nutrients, such as iron and potassium, which helps lower blood pressure.
