  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. Good Thing

    Perfectly Spiced, No Mess

    Hide

    The next time you need to season meat, poultry, or fish, use a fine sieve to do the job. Pour in the spice, hold the sieve over the food, and tap gently. The food will be evenly coated, and your hands will stay clean.

  4. How-To

    Carve Beef Tenderloin

    Hide

    Once the beef has finished cooking, let it rest on a cutting board for at least 10 minutes (this will allow the juices to redistribute). 

    Cut Across the Grain

    Holding meat steady with a carving fork, slice the tenderloin across the grain into 1/2-inch-thick pieces with a sawing motion, using a few long strokes of a carving knife.
