Every so often the Times has a huge food section article with like, 101 ideas for salads or 101 ideas for grilling . My Dad usually saves the print version from his work and brings it home for me, where I proceed to drool over the unlimited possibilities, or at least the vegetarian ones. (Btw, how great is my Dad? He is in Egypt right now covering the protests! Crazy, right?)

I must begin by saying where the recipe originated, if in fact it originated anywhere...really. I think bread has been baked for centuries using flour, salt, water, and yeast or other form of leavening. As far as I know the recipe for "No-Knead" bread dough was printed in the New York times. I don't know what month, day, or year. The originator is Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery. That's all I know.
Avocados are amazing things—they're delicious on their own, but they also have a lot of healthy fats, dietary fibers, and vitamins, and despite their high caloric value, they're remarkably easy to prepare. If you have an avocado that's too firm to use for something else, or you're just in the mood for something new and healthy for breakfast, slice it in half, remove the pit, and carve out a little space in the center. Crack an egg where the pit was, and bake. In a few minutes, you'll have a delicious, protein and vitamin-packed breakfast treat that's rich enough to keep you going all morning. The recipe itself is pretty simple, and comes to us thanks to reddit user fungz0r : preheat oven to 425, have cast iron pan in there Slice avocado in half, take out pit take pan out, put avocado half on, crack egg in put whatever you want on top place in oven and cook till your eggs [are done how you] desire

Robin shared some wonderful choices for healthier organic candy for Halloween last week. It made me long for candy myself! I thought I'd share 12 recipes for homemade candies that everyone can enjoy.
