In a perfect world we would all sing like Stevie Nicks, be as lovable as Baby Yoda, and cook as well as @mollybaz. We can’t help with the first two, but Molly gave us her essential kitchen equipment list that will put you in the best place to execute dishes that are crispy, never-overcooked, well-seasoned, and just outright good. See her list of essential kitchen equipment (that happens to make great gifts if you’re still shopping!) through the link in our bio. 📷: @laurashoots 🍴: @mpearljones

Traditions had to have started *somewhere*, Aunt Betty hasn’t *always* brought her famous fruitcake to Christmas Eve—it wasn’t even famous at one point! And you know what? You’re going to be famous for actually good eggnog from now on, with the help of resident bartender @al_culliton of course. You’ll start with our friend for life @b_goutish’s eggnog recipe, and switch up the base alcohol based on your preferences. Think mezcal with cinnamon and chocolate, or the classic rye, cognac, and rum with grated nutmeg. Either way, you’ll prove to everyone eggnog can be great. Get more from Al through the link in our bio. 📷: @laurashoots

You know what’s even better than a recipe? A thing that’s so easy to make you don’t even need a recipe. Which for cookbook author and food writer @hettymckinnon is the sweet and sour sauce she made because her mother wouldn’t share her recipe. Which actually worked out for her, because she tweaked her own to be less sickeningly-sweet than the sauce she grew up with on Sunday did sum adventures. She uses it on egg rolls, deep-fried wontons, or evening roasted cauliflower florets and noodles. Click the link in our bio to see more from Hetty McKinnon. 📷: @yungbludlau 🍴: @rice.isnice

@alexandrabeggs and @sarahjampel did the hard work so you don’t have to. And by the hard work, we mean tell you everything you need to know about chocolate. From milk to dark to cacao nibs to cocoa powder, click the link in our bio to read about it all. 📷: @chelsielcraig 🍴: @mpearljones

Hydrating is good for more than just a Saturday morning after a big night out. Like hydrating dough for example. When you combine wet and dry ingredients, the dry ingredients need time to absorb the wet ones, combining a bunch of ingredients into one cohesive dough. It all makes sense when you think about it, and you can read more about it through the link in our bio. 📷: @yungbludlau

One of our favorite ways to bring eggs to room temperature quickly is to let them hang in a room temperature bath for a few minutes. No, your eggs don’t need to sit in a jacuzzi or they’ll cook—you can leave that to your parents vacation home.

The only holidays cookies you need this year are @rick_andrew_martinez’s obscenely chocolatey double chocolate cookies, because double the chocolate is an automatic cookie swap win in our book. Get his recipe through the link in our bio. 📷: @laurashoots 🍴: @mpearljones

Cornbread has no season which makes this tip eternally useful: preheat your cast-iron skillet! That’s what helps form that cornbread that has a crust with a pillowy-soft interior. Your welcome, and maybe it’s a good chili-and-cornbread weekend. 📷: @yungbludlau

ROLL OUT THE HELIUM MACHINE AND START LIGHTING THE CANDLES BECAUSE IT’S RENT WEEK’S 3RD BIRTHDAY! That’s right, @alex_delany has been giving you delicious, rent week friendly recipes for THREE years now, which is pretty cool of him. To celebrate he’s making tahini ginger scallion sauce that he slathers all over rice, noodles, whatever you got. Click the link in our bio for more on this sauce from Delany. 📷: @laurashoots

We literally have so much to say when it comes to salt that we’re thinking of starting an entirely new website just dedicated to the darn thing. But for the moment, we’ll tell you that flaky salt (the one that’s on this focaccia!) is very worth having in your pantry and we like it the most for finishing things like toast, eggs, focaccia—really whatever. Read more about iodized versus kosher versus pink Himalayan through the link in our bio. 📷: @yungbludlau

Just like a two-in-one shampoo and conditioner will never work as well as the separate items, speeding up the process of caramelizing onions won’t ever produce the same results as taking your TIME. Keeping them on low heat, stirring A LOT, and adding water when they’re looking sticky are all important steps in caramelized onion care.

The phrase “treat others how you want to be treated” is actually about rice, if you think about it. Treat the rice nicely—by rinsing it!—and it’ll treat you nicely—by being fluffy rather than mushy! See—it’s the golden, errrr, rice rule. 📷: @laurashoots 🍴: @mpearljones
