"There is one cured and aged ham that we love more than any other: jamón ibérico. It seems a lot like prosciutto, but this ham is made from black Iberian pigs—a wild boar descendant. We love it with a glass of chilled Fino sherry or sparkling white."


"While house-bound during Hurricane Sandy, Amanda put Bar Keepers Friend to the test on everything from her saucepans to copper pots to Le Creuset casseroles. 10 years of wear and tear and oil-packed grime vanished."


"The holidays are our Super Bowl, and we're in full-on prep mode. We figured you might be, too, so we wanted to let you in on two tools that are essential to successful roasts, turkeys, and sauces." 


"We've been thinking a lot about dining outdoors, and this package is geared toward refreshments—cool items that will help you keep cool."
