10 Tangy Slaw Recipes to Pair with Roast Chicken — Recipe Roundup

A simple roast chicken is just about the easiest, most delicious thing you can make for dinner. All you need is a whole chicken, some butter, fresh herbs, and maybe a lemon. Once you can do that with your eyes closed, it's time to get creative with the sides. A vegetable-forward slaw will make any dinner feel a little more special, and it couldn't be quicker to make — especially if you have a food processor. Here are 10 great slaw recipes to get you started.


Which Has Better Prices: Trader Joe’s or 365 by Whole Foods Market? — Shopping

Trader Joe's and 365 (Whole Foods' younger sibling) have a lot in common. They both advertise quality ingredients and good values; lean heavily on their respective house brands; pre-package all meat, fish, and poultry; and are a go-to source for on-trend products like flax seeds and coconut flour.

Of course, there are some differences between the two. Trader Joe's has all those delicious frozen specialties (think: bite-sized spanakopita and mac and cheese balls), plus a ridiculous selection of nuts (there are 20 different types of almonds at my local store!). And 365s have a huge salad bar, hot-food steam tables, rotisserie chickens, and a more robust range of household necessities (like baby food, baking needs, ice, and trash bags).

Both offer much to gourmands and enterprising home cooks. But all differences aside, where will you get more bananas for your buck?

There is something eternally satisfying and soothing about buttered pasta. Toss warm strands of spaghetti with a pat of rich butter and a sprinkle of grated Parm and you've got an ultra-comforting meal that comes together in minutes. Use that as inspiration, then up the ante with nutty brown butter, golden toasted panko, and a double dose of cheese and you've got a comforting dish that's fancy enough for when friends pop over.
