Golden Hominy Chili

Here’s an offbeat chili and a great introduction to whole hominy, if you’ve never tried it before. It’s easy to find—you’ll likely be able to get it in any supermarket shelved right near canned corn. Hominy is dried corn whose hull has been soaked off. Reconstituted, it’s whole hominy; ground, it becomes hominy grits. Adapted […]

Rice and Pecan-Stuffed Squash

Brown rice and pecans are a tasty team in this thyme-scented stuffed squash recipe. The savory nut, bread, and rice stuffing, contrasted with the subtle sweetness of the acorn squash, makes a perfect holiday main or side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas, though you can enjoy it as a weekend meal any  time throughout the fall and winter. Photos by Evan Atlas.

Jacob Bromwell Old-Fashioned Popcorn Popper

If you’re a popcorn fan, here’s a kitchen (or fireplace) tool you’ll enjoy using. Microwave popcorn might be a smidgeon easier, but it doesn’t compare with the deep, delicious flavor produced by this old-fashioned popcorn popper.
