Carrot Cake Power Bites — Snack Recipes from The Kitchn

They're also made from whole ingredients (with just a teeny tiny drizzle of sugary icing on top), so even though they taste like dessert, they have enough fiber, protein, and fat to keep you ticking right through the afternoon doldrums. My husband, my parents, and four of my most discerning food writer friends all gave these little snack bites an enthusiastic thumbs up. The no-bake dough is moist and soft, with plenty of natural sweetness from cooked, mashed carrots and chopped dates. The cinnamon-spiced dough balls are topped off with a drizzle of vanilla bean icing, creating a taste sensation just like carrot cake with vanilla frosting. Because this dough is so soft and sticky, it doesn't quite work to roll it into balls with your hands. Shaping the power bites.

Cumin-Roasted Carrots with Wild Rice and Chickpeas — Recipes from The Kitchn

Pumpkin, sweet potato, and butternut squash feature big, but I always urge people to look towards the vegetables that can sometimes end up as second players in the show. Carrots are delightful as a mealtime star and I have a favorite technique that makes these carrots perfectly tender without going too soft. During the cooler months when I actually feel like turning on my oven, I often braise vegetables in a covered dish in the oven, and then uncover them to finish roasting. This technique makes the vegetables tender, especially the carrots, but far from mushy (because I really dislike mushy vegetables).

Set Up and Get to Know Your New Windows PC. What's your guys thoughts on simply reinstalling the Windows OS as soon as you get your new computer?

Set Up and Get to Know Your New Windows PC

It seems like when I install my OS it doesn't have all that bloatware and feels much more fresher than the day I first used it. Also, since Windows 7 installing the OS is pretty fast and you don't even have to worry about most of your drivers as Windows handles it for you. Just wondering if it'd be easier to boot up the computer once, then reinstall the OS for a truly fresh and new computer rather than dealing with uninstalling a bunch of bloatware and etc. The best Android apps of 2014. What we say: Mailbox is one of the better ways to attain the fabled Inbox Zero – or at least try to – by swiping unwanted emails aside like they’re unwanted matches in Tinder.

Once you start along this discovery path, don’t expect to surface for a while. What we say: Just as Mailbox provided a genuinely-appealing alternative to Gmail, so Sunrise Calendar has taken on Google’s cloud-calendar service.

Creamed Spinach with Baked Eggs Recipes from The Kitchn. Creamed spinach is a classic, decadent side dish, but it also makes a fine nest for baked eggs. Despite its name, cream weighs down the spinach, so half-and-half or whole milk is a better choice. On the other hand, skim milk is puny, meager, and inadequate. Starting with fresh spinach requires an extra prep step, but the flavor and texture are so superior to frozen spinach that it's worth it.
