A sophisticated cocktail that’s made drinkers swoon for more than a century thanks to the warm hush of Cognac, the sweetly tart lilt of lemon, and the effusive effervescence of Champagne.

A fennel, orange, and watercress salad on a decorative platter with a cup of dressing and a spoon on the side.

A few Mason jars filled with chicken bone broth.

Chicken Bone Broth

Easy. Healthy. Keto. Paleo. Able to be made in a slow cooker. Remnants of a rotisserie hen work just dandy. And, natch, the taste. Just a few of the things we adore about this chicken stock.

A bowl of slow cooker applesauce with two spoons nearby

Slow Cooker Applesauce

This recipe is gonna change your mind about store-bought applesauce. And not just because it lets you use your slow cooker and walk away. Wait’ll you taste it.

Nine Sriracha deviled egg halves and a teaspoon on a parchment-lined baking sheet
