We made Korean Bo Ssam instead of turkey last year. Here’s how you can change up your holiday table too!

Sure, certain time-honored family traditions have been part of your Thanksgiving holiday for as long as you can remember—but who says you can’t add new ones, or even just tweak some existing ones?

Recipe: Thumbprint Cookies

A seriously sublime, allergen-free cookie recipe for the holidays from New York Times bestselling cookbook author, Danielle Walker.

Thanksgiving is a joyous time of year, when we unite with friends and family (far and near) to celebrate our bonds and give thanks for each other and our blessings. But for so many of us with food allergies—be it to grains, gluten or dairy—the time-honored traditions that we grew up with, particularly around food, can […]

3D Mammograms: Finally, A Better Breast Cancer Screening Tool?

Find out the benefits—and whether your insurance covers it.

Three-dimensional mammograms have been available in the U.S. since 2011 (originally used in conjunction with a conventional two-dimensional scan), but you may not have gotten one yet, as many insurance companies are just beginning to cover them. I had one, but wouldn’t have known about it if my doctor hadn’t asked if I wanted it. […]

A Handmade Gathering: Dinner Party Ideas for Fall

Throw a dinner party inspired by the seasons—warm mulled cider, cake, and centerpiece included.

The holidays are upon us, and so begins the celebratory season of dinner parties with friends and family.

Books make a home. Use your personal library to add personality and spark to your space.

I recently met a super fabulous woman. She is a calligrapher, painter, and all-around stylish lady, whose home truly reflects her joyous, artistic energy.

The Lost Art of Good Conversation

When Time Stood Still in Spain

How I learned to slow down and smell the oranges—on vacation and back home.

Good travel isn’t just fun and relaxing, though it’s hopefully both of those things too. Good travel, to me, causes you to reflect on your own life—both there and on your return. Sometimes it even inspires you to make small or big changes.

Recipe: Golden Turmeric Roasted Vegetables

Simple, healthy, delicious Indian food for every day.

What comes to mind when you hear the words “Indian food?” If you’re like many people in the U.S., you likely think of an all-you-can-eat buffet full of heavy butter-laden, orange-colored homogenous “curries”—an umbrella word for gravy or sauce—often overwhelming the meats and rice they cover.
