  1. Dessert? It's an Illusion

    Hide

    What appear to be cracked eggs are something better, or at least sweeter -- scoops of mango sorbet in chocolate shells.

    How-To
    Use a sharp paring knife to split hollow chocolate eggs, available at specialty-food stores, in half, using the seam as a guide. Use a melon baller to scoop sorbet into each shell. Serve immediately, or freeze up to 2 hours.

  2. Autumn in a Jar

    Hide

    Whether you're hiking in the hills or to the office, this mix makes a delicious and convenient seasonal snack. Bursting with contrasting textures and flavors -- salty pumpkin seeds, spicy ginger, crunchy almonds, chewy cranberries, rich coconut -- the blend will dazzle your taste buds. It makes a great gift, too.

  3. How to Keep Shrimp Cold

    Hide

    Seafood needs to be kept well chilled until the moment you cook it. 

    If you're tight on fridge space or want to bring your fish or shrimp to the grill a few minutes in advance, here's how to keep it cool: Fill a shallow pan with ice. Cover with plastic wrap, place the seafood on top, and cover with more wrap.

    (Give the idea a try when making our Spicy Grilled Shrimp.)

  4. Punch Bowl Ice Bath

    Hide

    Instead of watering down your drink with ice cubes that are destined to melt, give the entire vessel its own ice bucket. Slip one glass container inside another (we found these multipurpose cylinders at a floral-supply shop, jamaligarden.com), and put the ice between them. The effect is dramatic and guarantees that your punch retains its punch.
