A number of well-loved blogs, restaurants, and even TV chefs are coming out with cookbooks this Fall, and they're chock-full of with dishes that will keep us cooking well into the Winter. Loaded with beautiful pictures, illustrations, stories, and — most importantly — recipes, Fall's new releases are offering us entirely new ways to explore our kitchens. Here are 15 books not to part with, ranging from drinks to dessert and covering all skill levels. Choose a favorite or start your holiday shopping early; any one of these book will inspire even take-out lovers to get cooking!
If you were to stop and go through the quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies weighing down your purse or cluttering up your car cup holder, how much do you think you'd collect? $10? $25? Well, according to the experts at Coinstar, the average amount cashed in for eCertificates and/or gift cards at their coin kiosks is a whopping $56 — twice as much as people think they have. Talk about a nice, unexpected chunk of change as we head into the holiday season (especially since so many of us go over budget on holiday shopping!).
Our advice to you: make every coin count! Take a few minutes to grab all the spare change "jingle-belling" in your purses, pockets, car, and desk drawers, then hit your local Coinstar kiosk, where you can turn the contents of your coin jar into cash or no-fee eCertificates from popular brands, including Amazon, iTunes, Gap, and Starbucks. Click here to find the Coinstar kiosk closest to you.
Now that you know there might be more change lying around than you think, what would you do with those extra pennies this holiday?
Dmash shows that poached chicken is easy to prepare at the beginning of the week and then use for tostadas, enchiladas, salads, sandwiches — pretty much any recipe that calls for protein.
This poached chicken recipe is simple, and you even get to keep the chicken broth after! Chicken broth keeps great in the freezer and cooking up your own batch of chicken stock allows you to control the sodium. Think of this recipe as a two-for-one deal!

You may know that the festival offers an exciting mix of wine and food demos, celebrity chef-hosted parties, and restaurant industry talks, but there's plenty more that goes on behind the scenes. We thought it'd be fun to offer a glimpse of the event by the numbers. Let's begin with the biggest two: roughly 50,000 guests will attend this year's festival, and 100 percent of the proceeds from those festival tickets will go to the Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. For more astounding numbers, read ahead.

I soon found out more about Fulton's Harvest, including the fact that it's made by well-reputed Kentucky Bourbon maker Heaven Hill Distilleries and tastes delicious on the rocks or served chilled. But by that point, I'd gotten back so many enticing-sounding cooking and cocktail suggestions — everything from pumpkin whipped cream to spiked pumpkin pie — that I had to try one out.
Ultimately, it was @Tora_NYC's Irish cream suggestion that left me with a brilliant Fall twist on a favorite, Irish coffee. As with any Irish coffee, don't let the whipped cream and coffee fool you — this cocktail packs a punch! I served it in a giant glass mug, topped with a very generous topping of whipped cream. For the recipe, keep reading.
