Doing some last-minute work on your taxes this weekend? Well maybe they'll be a bit easier to do if you know there's a reward at the end of the tax-form tunnel. Next Tuesday, April 15, Dunkin' Donuts is offering a bit of tax-day relief in the form of a free donut. However, I should warn you, much like your taxes, you need to read all the fine print. The donut is only free when you buy any sized hot coffee. If you're interested, find a Dunkin' Donuts store near you.

Usually made from seasoned ground meat, fish, or vegetables, this light, delicate dumpling is formed into small ovals and poached. They can be served in a rich sauce, as a first or main course, or as a garnish. It's a term given to anything in that shape, I've even seen ice cream served this way.
Usually I order eggs Benedict at brunch, but lately I've been hungry for huevos rancheros. Huevos rancheros — which translates to rancher's eggs — are tortillas topped with fried eggs and salsa making for a spicy, scrumptious breakfast. The eggs are so filling they also make a wonderful dinner. Having a huevos ranchero recipe in your arsenal is a must if you love Mexican food, so I've found two recipes for you to experiment with. To give one or both of the recipes a try — the first is for beginning cooks and the second is for advanced cooks — read more
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to talk to Zoi, the latest Top Chef cheftestant to pack her knives and go. She was one-half of the San Francisco couple — the other half being Jen — and was sent home because of some under-flavored — or was that over-flavored — mushrooms.

Fab's new — single and fabulous — apartment will set the scene of our Sex and the City marathon. Since this is a housewarming party for her, the decor will be her natural living space with clean, crisp, and minimal accents. Our color scheme is black and white with splashes of hot pink.
Start by covering the table in a fabulous zebra print runner. Serve the food on artistically shaped white serving platters. Stack the linen napkins next to the small square appetizer plates so guests can fill them up with tasty nibbles. For an elegant presentation of cupcakes, use a tiered serving platter.

Throw plush, black pillows on the couch and chairs for easy lounging.
