Angie Mc's insight:

"When it comes to chocolate cake -- and chocolate cake only -- the consistency really should be dense. Because chocolate is dense. Think about, how can a fluffy cake taste anything like chocolate?"

How To Cook Moist & Tender Chicken Breasts Every Time Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

How To Cook Moist & Tender Chicken Breasts Every Time  Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn | Family Food and Feast | Scoop.it
Boneless skinless chicken breasts (aka BSCBs) — is there anything more boring? They are all too often served dry, chewy and tasteless. I usuall avoid now BSCBs in favor of more succulent boneless, skinless thighs. I do have one method, however, that makes unfailingly juicy and tender boneless skinless chicken breasts. Need some chicken for a salad, or to top some pasta? This is the method. It takes some trust, but believe me — it works flawlessly every single time.
Angie Mc's insight:

Perfect for spring salads.

Healthy eating in midlife helps stave off dementia. | Family Food and Feast | Scoop.it

Eating right in midlife may prevent dementia later on, according to a new study published by the University of Eastern Finland. Results indicated those who consistently consumed healthy foods at the average age of 50 had a nearly 90% lower risk of dementia in a 14-year follow-up study compared to those who did not eat healthfully.

Ivo Nový's curator insight, March 21, 7:13 AM

The Alzheimer's Association recommends increasing intake of "protective foods" to maintain a healthy brain. These include dark-skinned fruits and vegetables such as prunes, raisins, red grapes, plums, blueberries, cherries, broccoli, spinach, kale, onion, red bell pepper, beets and eggplant. Nuts such as almonds, walnuts and pecans are also recommended, as are cold-water fish such as trout, salmon, tuna, mackerel and halibut. Increasing intake of vitamins such as C, E, folate and B12 is also considered helpful.

15 Totally Delicious Sandwiches for Your Lunchbox Recipes from The Kitchn

15 Totally Delicious Sandwiches for Your Lunchbox  Recipes from The Kitchn | Family Food and Feast | Scoop.it
It wasn't until about a year ago that I became an avid sandwich eater. Before the fateful day when I consumed The Perfect Sandwich, I never understood the appeal – why not just consume the ingredients in salad form? Why did everything turn out so soggy? But lo', sandwiches have so much more to offer when done right. You see, it's all about the quality of the ingredients (especially bread), and awesome spreads and lots of textures. These 15 sandwiches have all that going on and then some. It's about time you made your lunchbox proud.

Beer Science: How to Pour the Perfect Glass of Beer Every Single Time

Beer Science: How to Pour the Perfect Glass of Beer Every Single Time | Family Food and Feast | Scoop.it
I was just 16 when I poured my first beer. It was my first restaurant job and a customer ordered a pint while the bartender was busy. I'd seen her do it hundreds of times, and she made it look so easy. Besides, it couldn't be that different from filling a cup from the soda machine, right? Wrong. So very wrong. Needless to say, my first pour was less than spectacular. It's a lot harder than it looks, and if you don't know what you're doing, you can end up with a foamy mess. The way you pour a beer has a drastic effect on the thickness of that foam, i.e. the head. Where Does the Head Come
