We're bringing you this delicious-sounding recipe as an excerpt from Vegan Food for the Rest of Us by Ann Hodgman. The day of chocolate mousse has come and gone. But not for vegans, who haven’t been able to eat it in decades. When you serve this, you’ll find that no one will say, “Isn’t this kind of . . . dated?” It sounds slightly insulting when a recipe calls for “high-quality” chocolate. Not the kind you’d usually buy, you cheap slug. Here, though, you should go for...
Published in 1861, Beeton’s Book of Household Management is perhaps one of the most famous non-fiction books to come out of the 19th century. At over one thousand pages long, it was the first publication of its kind to address all aspects of household management, covering everything from cooking and cleaning to childrearing and animal husbandry. It even includes a section on the law, providing the inquiring housewife with general information on leaseholds, the legal rights and obligations between husband and wife, and the questionable...

    If you need a little extra holiday cheer this year (who doesn’t?), whip up a batch of this old-school bourbon eggnog. It’s just like the stuff you used to drink as a kid, except with booze, and without whatever additives made it so damn sweet. Just know that once you try this method, you may never be able to go back to that saccharine shit they sell at the grocery store ever again. Eggnog, by definition, is simply a blend of milk or cream, eggs, sugar,...
Growing up, a New Year’s good luck dish would have meant, for me, eating dinner at anybody else’s house. I longed for the New Year’s suppers my school pals bragged about—what I had was asparagus out of a can that my mom bought four-for-a-dollar and kosher chicken that she left in the oven for so long it was almost jerky. There are a lot of theories about what dishes are supposed to bring good luck on New Year’s, but a common one is that beans...

  Whether you’re looking to impress or just want to have a little fun with your food, turning pasta pink with beetroot is simple and stunning. This subtly sweet vegetable is full of detox power, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties. Beets are also very versatile and can be baked, boiled, or fried into a chip. We decided to use the vibrant juicy color to add a little flair to our spaghetti. But fair warning, my hands and shirt were splattered a very pretty color of magenta when...
  This cool and spicy fennel dish plays nice with rich Thanksgiving eats.

This holiday, stick to your tried and trues, but get fresh with a dish that offers a much-needed palate cleanser: a salad! Not the standard leafy greens and bottled dressing kind. This delicate dish features mellow fennel, sweet-tart apple,...
