In a surprise to absolutely no one, spaghetti squash—unfairly maligned as bland and watery—tastes great when smothered in flavorful tomato sauce and blanketed under a layer of melty cheese. Here the tomato sauce cooks in the oven at the same time the squash roasts; combine the two, return the dish to the oven, and you’ve got a hands-off dinner with minimal cleanup. Serve this with bread and a green salad one night, then mix leftovers into pasta for “noodles” on noodles the next. 

Halving the squash crosswise is a tip we learned from cookbook writer and food blogger Alexandr…….

Meanwhile, whisk gochujang, soy sauce, maple syrup, mirin, and 1 cup water in a medium bowl. Pour sauce into a skillet large enough to hold all of the cauliflower florets (a 12″ skillet should do it) and bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking occasionally. Cook, whisking, until sauce is thick enough to coat a spoon, 8–10 minutes. Stir in vinegar and remove pan from heat.



[Episcopal News Service] Baking and binge-watching television both have been pandemic diversions. The clergy and lay leaders at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church capitalized on those habits last Epiphany when they produced “The Great Episcopal Baking Show,” echoing the extremely popular “Great British Baking Show.”

The idea came up during a Zoom staff meeting in mid-December 2020 at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church as the participants wondered “how to bring people together when we’re not going to be in-person this Christmas?” explained Andrea McKellar, who at tha…….

Samsung is overhauling its TV interface, and it’s looking to pull many of your gaming needs together in one place. Via the Gaming Hub, you’ll be able to fire up console games directly from TV home screens so you can start playing them a bit faster. 

Players can access cloud gaming streaming services from the hub, such as NVIDIA’s GeForce Now, Stadia and PC gaming platform Utomik. Samsung says there are more services to come. Microsoft announced at E3 last year that a smart TV app for Xbox Game Pass is on the way, so maybe that’ll land on the Gaming Hub at some point. Game streaming …….

Jan. 3—I must say, The Daily Independent’s inaugural holiday cookie-making contest was a sweet success.

And I don’t say that simply because I was one of the three lucky judges who got to gobble up the scrumptious goodies.

A few weeks ago, our previously anonymous “Appetizing Ashland Area” columnist approached me with a wonderful idea that would get a few area children engaging with the newspaper — and supplying us with perfect snacks to accompany our newsroom coffee.

The contest was limited to chocolate chip cookies that had to be made from scratch. It consisted of thr…….

Here’s when to use a lodge cast iron skillet vs. a lidded baking dish for your favorite recipes. Both are practical pieces of cookware with some similarities and several important differences. 

The Lodge brand seems to have a cult following. There are the home cooks who leave their well-loved cast-iron skillet on the stove at all times, patiently awaiting the next meal. But even if you’re a cast iron die-hard, it’s time to face the facts: the dish simply can’t do it all.  For some kitchen tasks, you need a lidded baking dish to do the job well.
