Letter from the Editor: Your Starter Pack for Cooking in the New Year

The recipes and know-how you need to start 2020 right

Based on 0 ratings

I think of the New Year less as a time to reinvent yourself and more as an opportunity to reboot. Maybe that means eating a bit healthier, learning a new technique (bread baking, anyone?), or simply ordering less takeout. 

But let’s level for a minute: Getting through this part of winter is hard enough, without setting a lofty goal for a whole new you. Finding a way to cope with the long, grey days is a victory in itself. To that end, we’re here for you—because if there’s anything you can count on to make a dreary season brighter, it’s food. Embrace the season of soups, casseroles, and spiced beverages, and if you’re on a healthy kick, make it a satisfying one (you can’t start the year in a good mood if you’re perpetually hungry). 

A sneak peak of what’s to come

This month, we’ve got healthy(-enough) recipes from breakfast through dinner and plenty of new techniques to learn—like how to put your juicer to good use, mastering the art of a stir-fry, and cooking chicken breast, the right way. And if you’re itching to infuse your weeknight recipe routine with new life, look no further. January is filled with new ideas, no matter how much time you have on any given day to get dinner on the table.
