Whether you’re hosting a haunted get together or just want to sip something boozy while you watch scary movies alone in the dark, treat yourself to this spicy take on a classic Dark and Stormy. Instead of the traditional lime wedge garnish, it’s topped with a round orange slice and a clove (to resemble a pumpkin, of course). For a frightening finishing touch, it gets doused with blood, aka Peychaud’s Bitters. Cheers, witches.  Red Rum // Makes 2 cocktailsINGREDIENTS 1 orange Peychaud’s Bitters4 oz. dark, spiced...

  Instead of going trick-or-treating many practicing witches instead mark October 31st by celebrating Samhain, a Celtic and Pagan holiday celebrating the beginning of winter. It's held on the night of October 31st, when it's believed that the veil between the world of the living and the dead is thin. We're bringing you one way to celebrate Samhain, excerpted from the Modern Witchcraft Guide To The Wheel Of The Year: From Samhain To Yule, Your Guide To The Wiccan Holidays by Judy Ann Nock.   THE DEAD SUPPER One way to...
“On the most basic level, resistance, just like any other active thing, needs to be fed in order to sustain,” Julia Turshen writes in her new cookbook,Feed the Resistance: Recipes and Ideas for Getting Involved (Chronicle Books, October 3, 2017). And every page does just that, with easy recipes for busy activists (Greek chickpea salad), dishes for crowds (tikka masala mac & cheese), and portable snacks and baked goods (persistence biscuits, chocolate espresso pie bars) for protesting fuel and fundraisers. Sandwiched in between are poignant...

As any six-year-old will tell you, the power of cake is undeniable. So it makes a lot of sense that BFF bakers Tess Wilson and Leah Rosenberg decided to use the versatile dessert to make bold political statements. The Instagram feed for the duo’s Protest Cakes project features pic after pic of frosted deliciousness, each with a different theme, like their Climate Change cake (“baked at ever-increasing temperatures and submerged in 2.6 inches of saltwater”) or their Mexican Hot Chocolate Rice Krispies Treat Wall (“to...
Though I live for soup, I don’t like waiting for stuff to simmer.

This 7-in-1 appliance (pressure/slow/rice cooker, steamer, sauté/browner, yogurt maker, and warmer) is a game changer. It has multiple presets — including one for soup — and there are a ton of recipes online to help newbies get used to this new cooking gizmo. Toss in spaghetti...
Hummus was one of the first dishes I learned how to make early on in my catering career. I thought it was pretty darn great, until I hired an Israeli chef, and found out that I had a lot to learn. Like the fact that adding a pinch of baking soda to the chickpea cooking water helps keep farting to a minimum. And that beating the tahini with a fork makes for an extra-creamy result. Later, I went to Israel and found entire restaurants dedicated to...

It’s not surprising to learn that the latest studies say veganism is on the rise. More and more people are becoming educated about the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle, such as better long-term health, a reduced environmental footprint, or not contributing to animal cruelty. However, with veganism becoming more popular, high-end restaurants can demand more money for healthful and aesthetically pleasing dishes, which can make going out to dinner a break on the bank. Especially for individuals in high school, college, or their early adult life,...
Say hello to Florence Bearse, who just celebrated her 100th birthday earlier this month in Bangor, Maine. The upbeat centenarian, interviewed by her local television news station WLBZ at the Westgate Center for Rehabilitation, revealed that wine has helped her live a long, happy life. “Oh, I like my wine. Don't take it away from me,” she said, while wearing a pink-and-white Hawaiian lei and a beaded "Birthday Princess" necklace. Bearse, a former restaurant owner and recreational ballroom dancer from Massachusetts, fell in love with Maine’s scenery and...
With rising temps and longer days comes the urge to whip up tasty cold drinks. This summer, say goodbye to plain Jane lemonade with agua de panela, as it’s known in Colombia: a simpler lemon or lime water sweetened with panela, the “original” brown sugar. Its delicate caramel flavors compliment the zingy blend of citrus juices for a beverage that’s more substantial, and a little less sweet, than standard lemonade. Plus, it’s a fantastic pick-me-up on a hot afternoon. Add this simple syrup to water,...
