A Dietitian's Hacks for Feeding Picky Children
Feeding children can be a struggle. When our kids were toddlers, my neighbor and I would trade kitchen-table war stories at 9 a.m. “I just made three different breakfasts,” she would tell me, “and he wouldn’t eat any of them.” The easiest thing to do is give in: “Here! Fine! Subsist on dino nuggets and dino nuggets…Read more...

Leftover Salad Makes a Pretty Good Scramble
It is easy to get overenthusiastic at the salad bar. I tend to both overestimate my appetite and underestimate the filling nature of fiber, and thus usually end up with at least half a cup of salad that is fully dressed with nowhere to go.

You Can Opt Out of Facial Recognition Screening at an Airport
Last week, writer Mackenzie Fegan boarded an international JetBlue flight without so much as handing over a boarding pass or passport. “I looked into a camera before being allowed down the jet bridge,” she wrote on Twitter. “Did facial recognition replace boarding passes, unbeknownst to me?

Ramp-Wrapped Scallops Are Better Than Bacon-Wrapped Scallops
I have never fully understood the appeal of a bacon-wrapped scallop. Though I love both of these treasures, meaty, cured bacon is simply too aggressive for the delicate, sweet scallop. It’s self-defeating lily gilding, and I don’t like it. Plus, unless you pre-cook it, the bacon doesn’t have enough time to crisp up…Read more...
