Forget Grandma's "after Memorial Day" rule. Fashion experts, trendsetters, and even Hollywood’s most glamorous celebrities agree that snow-colored styles are a fresh, versatile, and acceptable choice all year round. In fact, the only time white is not right is when a particular item of clothing starts to look dingy — as the result of stains, spots, and discoloration, or simply because you wear and wash it far too much.
With Tide Vivid White + Bright Detergent, you can get powerful cleaning, whitening, and brightening without sacrificing the quality of your clothes. Because Tide Vivid White + Bright contains no chlorine bleach and has an ingredient that neutralizes the chlorine in your water, it's safe for all your machine-washable clothes and won't cause colored garments to fade. The result is whiter whites and brighter brights that might just see today's trend through tomorrow's comeback.
For bonus whitening power, include Tide Boost Vivid White + Bright Pacs in your laundry routine. Designed to work with Tide Vivid White + Bright Detergent, the in-wash booster "pac" gets added to the wash cycle with detergent for brighter whites vs. detergent alone.

Although florals and frills can make a grand impact on a wedding cake, so too can geometric shapes, mod detail, and other unexpected contemporary flourishes. For the nontraditional couple, we've rounded up 25 eye-popping cakes that are guaranteed to serve guests an impressive bite. Take a peek and get inspired!
Combine thick batons of slab bacon, or lardons, runny-yolked poached eggs, a sprinkling of minced shallot, and frilly frisée, and it's no surprise that the resulting salad is salty, sharp, and satisfying. Even better, salade Lyonnaise, as it's known in France, is gloriously versatile. It can serve as an elegant yet easy first course to a classic French meal or satiate on its own with the addition of an extra poached egg and a smattering of croutons or a hunk of baguette to mop up any extra dressing.
For a splendid and not-too-fussy meal, start with the salad at hand and a glass of crisp white wine, and pair it with lemon and lavender roast chicken, moules à la marinière, or a bloody rare New York strip steak. Either way, make certain to try out this can't-miss recipe.
Before my nose fully reached the countertop, my grandmother would show me how to fry up a piece of bacon just to render the bacon fat for my favorite lady pea recipe. After all, the Southern attitude is of the "who needs spices or herbs when bacon's flavor will saturate and perfect just about any dish?" mentality. I've maintained that perspective in my kitchen today, and urge you to do the same. If you've been prone to toss out the liquid gold after frying up a few pieces of bacon, for goodness' sake, stop! Let me show you how to handle, store, and use bacon grease.
