Recipe: Egg, Spinach, and Spelt Salad with Green Garlic Dressing — Healthy Lunch Recipes from The Kitchn

When I make salads, I have a fairly basic formula that I adapt based on what I have on hand: greens, extra vegetables, grains, nuts or seeds, a basic vinaigrette, and protein (either legumes or eggs). This spinach salad follows my basic formula, pairing some wonderful spring produce — green garlic and spinach — with the earthy, chewiness of the spelt. Add the hard-boiled egg and you have a quite the hearty salad.

What We Do When the Phone Rings During Dinner: Then & Now — Kitchn Diary: Anne in South Carolina

In the eighties, our phone rang a lot during dinner, something my mother didn't love, though she saw the necessity in my dad's line of work. He was a real estate agent, and a lot of people needed him outside of their own work hours. (After all, you usually have to have a job to buy a house, so ditching work to look for one isn't the best plan.) But we still had rules about talking on the phone during dinner, and they even applied to Dad.

With changing lifestyles and meal times, as well as seriously ramped up technology, the rules have changed, but perhaps not as much as we think. My parents' standards for phone communication at the table are the same ones we use today, even if we don't have a fancy box to hide our phones like the one in the above photo.

How To Make Paneer Cheese in 30 Minutes — Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

Pin it button

Paneer is the star ingredient in some of my most favorite Indian dishes — and probably yours too! I often find myself scooping just one more nibble of chewy, milky-tasting paneer from the dish long after I'm officially full. Sure, you can buy this firm cheese at the store to make your own homemade curries, but where's the fun in that?! If you have a pot, a strainer, and some cheesecloth, you can have fresh homemade paneer cheese in about 30 minutes.
