(Image credit: Johnna Holmgren)

Dads get a bad reputation for keeping out of the kitchen, or, if they do cook, only being responsible for things like (ahem) manning the grill. But there are, in fact, whole communities of baby-wearing dads who are taking cooking (and shopping and dishwashing) with their kids to a new level. Here we celebrate 10 Instagram dads who are the definition of #momporn.

Brooklyn Then & Now — The 2016 Oscars

The borough depicted in Brooklyn, one of this year's Oscar contenders for Best Picture, is a nostalgic, blue-collar departure from today's posh condos flaunting shiny granite kitchens. While 21st-century Brooklyn remains proudly anchored to its deep ethnic roots, it is no longer defined by middle-class families savoring carefree afternoons on brownstone stoops or parish dances (leading, many immigrant women hoped, to a potential suitor). And food is one powerful way of chronicling Brooklyn's transformation.

Which obviously begs the question: Is there good pizza to be found in the City by the Bay? And does broccoli belong on pizza? I asked our team to weigh in on these important issues — and a few others.

Memorable Kitchens in Cinematic History — Food on Film

If movies are a visual feast for the senses, movie kitchens satisfy a different kind of craving. More than medicine chests or bedrooms, kitchens feed our voyeuristic curiosity about the day-to-day lives of the fictional characters on the silver screen. In honor of the Oscars, I thought I'd take a stroll through the hallowed celluloid halls (and pantries) and offer up some of the most memorable kitchens in recent cinematic history.

10 Romantic Cinematic Food Scenes — Valentine’s Day

Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief

The surge of amorousness come Valentine's Day and the accompanying pressure to celebrate the holiday with an over-the-top bouquet and a fancy dinner reservation can be overbearing. Yet there's no need to fret if impromptu tulips weren't delivered or you couldn't snag a table at that swish new French-Vietnamese restaurant. It's far more fun to settle in for the night with low-cost bubbly, a casserole in the oven, and a flick. Choose one of these 10 gems, which all meld food and romance in distinctly memorable scenes.
