This Is the Most Popular Brussels Sprouts Recipe on Pinterest — Popular on Pinterest

In my humble opinion, there's only one way we should all be eating Brussels sprouts and that's tossed in olive oil and roasted to oblivion — until the outside leaves are browned and crispy, and the nestled insides are steamy and tender. Cooked this way, no Brussels sprout stands a chance against me. Seriously, I could eat an entire sheet tray of 'em and still come back in search for more (and I know a few fellow Kitchn staffers who would agree).

And would you look at that...the people of Pinterest kinda sorta agree with me too, (with the addition of a few extra odds and ends in the mix, of course).

6 Things You Didn't Realize About IKEA Kitchen Cabinets — Organizing the IKEA Way

Recipe: Easy, Creamy Lemon Garlic Skillet Chicken — Recipes from The Kitchn

Before I dive into how obsessed I am with this recipe, I have a quick PSA: When you're shopping for the ingredients, go ahead and grab some rice or crusty bread. There's a whole lot of velvety sauce going on here, and trust me when I say you'll want to mop up every last drop.

This rich and creamy skillet dinner is just the kind of thing I want to eat on cold winter nights. The chicken breasts simmer in a pan of lemon garlic goodness, and taste like they were made at your favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant. Because the recipe comes together so quickly — less than 30 minutes — you can turn to it over and over again, no matter how busy life gets.

25 Essential Dutch Oven Recipes for Colder Months — Recipes from The Kitchn

My most prized possession in my kitchen is my Dutch oven. Ever since I began rifling through food magazines as a teenager, I've pined over the classic Le Creuset one and, knowing this, my aunt gifted my husband and me one as an engagement gift. It hasn't budged from my stovetop since. That's partially because we don't have room to store it anywhere else in our tiny apartment, but we also use it incredibly often.

When the colder months hit, we use it almost daily to churn out warming soups, braised meat, and one-pot meals. Do you do the same? If not, let these 25 recipes convince you. Once you discover a Dutch oven's endless possibilities, you'll leave yours out on the stovetop too.

Ways to Use Old, Mushy, or Bruised Apples — Tips from The Kitchn

If you find yourself with a less-than-stellar bunch of apples, or extra-soft apples that have been sitting around for a few too many days, don't worry — it happens to the best of us. But don't toss them away! Not even the ones with the nasty bruises.

Apples that are past their prime might not be great for biting into as an afternoon snack, but they've still got some life left in them. Older apples are great for cooking! As the apples break down during cooking, the remaining liquid is released and the natural sugars concentrate, transforming them into something remarkably delicious. Here are 11 smart uses for your not-so-great apples.

I Bought My Live Christmas Tree on Amazon — Here's How It Went — Shopping

As the (proud-ish) owner of a 2000 Honda Accord, I don't have to worry about a lot of things. I can always find my car in a crowded parking lot (thanks to its hideous sun-baked, spotted paint job), and I feel fine leaving it anywhere (I don't really care if shopping carts dent it or if someone scrapes it a bit while trying to parallel park). It runs just fine, too, so the biggest concern I have about it comes every year around this time: How to get a Christmas tree home in it?

Over the years, my husband and I have tried tying it to the roof and stuffing it into the trunk. We don't love either option (the first leads to a horrifying drive home and the latter makes one heck of a mess), so when I heard that Amazon was selling live Christmas trees, I knew we'd be giving it a try this year.

The Everyday Pasta Brand Italians Buy (and You Should Too) — Tips from The Kitchn

When I was growing up, the only brand of pasta you'd find in our pantry was that blue box that starts with a B. The frequent commercials showed images of Italians in Italy eating it, so it must've been the best, right?

Then I actually went to Italy, to study abroad and then later for grad school. While I found boxes of my tried-and-true pasta at the neighborhood grocery stores, there was another blue box that squeezed up against them on the shelf. I'd seen this brand in the States, but hadn't paid much attention it.

After making friends with locals, learning the language, and cooking a whole lot of pasta, I learned one very important thing: I'd been buying the wrong pasta my whole life. Turns out, the Italians buy the other blue box.
