Chicken thighs are one of our favorite cuts and we use them in all kinds of recipes. Try them baked, braised, broiled, grilled, roasted, sautéed, or seared—any way you make them, they're flavorful and juicy. Like white meat, they are quick to cook, but don't dry out like chicken breasts (and they're a better buy for your budget!). We're celebrating the versatility of chicken thighs with these recipes. Go ahead and make one for dinner tonight.

Casseroles are perfect one-dish meals and can be weeknight lifesavers—but not if you're spending an hour or more assembling them as the clock ticks closer to dinnertime. That's why we love the casseroles in this collection, which can all be made in advance and then popped into the oven (perhaps with a quick topping added first) when you're ready to eat. It's a very simple way to make a busy weeknight feel much calmer. Be sure to read through the recipe fully before you make it, which will let you know at what point you can stop, cover the casserole, and refrigerate or freeze it before proceeding. And it's a good rule of thumb to bring any casserole up to room temperature (or close to it) before putting it into the oven. After that, all that's left to do is sit back, relax, and dig in (and congratulate yourself on your fantastic foresight!).

Your entryway may be the space your family utilizes every morning to get ready for the day ahead, but it's also the first impression guests get when they enter your house. With that in mind, it's easy to see why this area needs to be both functional and representative of your overall style.  Often a dumping ground for shoes, coats, and other everyday wares, it's easy for your foyer to fill up with its fair share of clutter. But by implementing simple organizing systems—like a coat and shoe rack—you can quickly make this space orderly and functional. Once the basics are covered, it's all about incorporating accessories to further maximize and stylize the space, like sleek umbrella organizers, mirrors, and shelving.
