Leftover matzoh is one of Passover’s greatest challenges – I’ll admit to letting a lonely box linger for years. Use up leftover matzoh in the weeks following Passover & you’ll be that much more delighted to see the boxes line your shelves again next year.

I love a good spring cleaning and as you might imagine, much of my ardor is focused on the kitchen. We’re starting to see the buds of a new season (well, most of us – in like a lion, out like a lamb, remember), but it’s still pretty chilly overall, so now feels like perfect time to scrounge around in your cabinets and get cooking. After an informal office poll, I found these five (handy) troublemakers at the top of our list. For a new start, clean out your pantry, make something delicious, then head to the store for a refresh.

Sriracha, the garlicky, chile paste, is just vinegary enough to brighten-up anything while still adding plenty of heat. Sriracha on eggs is outstanding, but it can do so much more than that.

January offers up a great opportunity for giving your kitchen routine a revamp. I’m working on eating plenty of salads, drinking lots of water and topping my morning oatmeal with fresh fruit, but I also pay close attention to cooking practices for an extra fresh start. These four simple techniques will help you cut back on sodium and fat, reduce consumption of meat, bump your intake of veggies and stay cozy in the chilly winter months. Bonus!

The year 2013 was a good one! We’ve expanded the number of our Health Starts Here® recipes to over 400 and offered up more recipes for you to try as a whole. Our readers seemed to like the idea of taking recipe standbys (fruit salads, burritos, grilled cheese sandwiches, spinach salads) and turning them up a notch. We even had a winning Team Member dip from a produce department contest make waves!

For many Jewish families like mine, Christmas Day is a day for eating Chinese food and heading to the movies. But, I also had a friend who celebrated Christmas with his family every year by cooking a big meal inspired by the cuisine of another country (Thai one year, Argentinian the next) and watching old movies all day. I like the quirkiness of both customs. It may seem unconventional, but Chinese take-out for Christmas is borderline traditional. Stay cozy and make your favorite take-out dishes at home.

The end of the year is the perfect time to do a pantry reset. In addition to stocking the refrigerator with all the veggies and fruit you can manage, filling your pantry with feel-good food will help you double down on your New Year’s resolutions. Beans, Beans!

Cocktail parties, cookie swaps, work gatherings, school celebrations – December calendars get full fast so having a well-stocked pantry makes juggling easier. Here are our top five picks for making that happen.

My vote is to stock your baking pantry for practical needs (holiday brunches and cookie exchanges), but to do it with fun in mind. During the holiday baking sprint, call on favorite recipes then give them a seasonal spin. If a sugar cookie recipe never fails you, but you’re interested in a bit of a rev-up, these pantry staples can add a little excitement.

It’s time to get your holiday bake on and the treat train won’t stop until the end of the year. If you’re sensitive to gluten or managing celiac disease, there’s no need to forego holiday pies, cookies, breads and muffins. Gluten-free baking can seem like a pretty tough order, but it’s easier (and more delicious!) than you think.

This year the first day of Hanukkah and Thanksgiving coincide; this won’t happen again for another 70,000 years, so buckle your seat belts. I have my menorah at the ready and will carefully select all the burnished orange and red candles for the night. I may even attach some (non-flammable) turkey-like feathers to it to really get us in the mood, but I’m frankly feeling pretty excited about the opportunity to mix these delicious food traditions for one unforgettable feast.

Gravy is the linchpin of any celebrated Thanksgiving feast – it manages to tie all the meal elements together and is one of those special holiday things many of us rarely make outside of Thanksgiving.   Pour it over dressing, mashed potatoes and turkey, sop it up with a roll and be sure to save a little for your leftovers sandwich.

One of the biggest and most hotly anticipated meals of the year comes, thankfully (ha!), as the fall harvest season wraps up. Count on winter squash, fresh cranberries, Brussels sprouts, root veggies and a few tropical fruits for a truly special Thanksgiving feast. Skipping added oils, sweeteners and sodium also means you can focus on the flavors of the foods you love. Perk up your plate with these flavorful, healthy holiday options.
