Just because we know the formula for a smoothie is fruit + ice + something doesn't mean we get it right all the time. Thankfully there's Superfood Smoothies, the cookbook to show us the way to healthy frozen nirvana. Sweet mango and bracingly hot chili pepper's one hot way to start off your day.

One Pan, Two Plates is our favorite new book for easy weeknight dinners. Carla Snyder's recipes are fast, flavorful and minimal on the clean-up (which is always okay by us). It's corn season — time for succotash, the perfect accompaniment to hearty, healthy salmon.

We're not getting any less obsessed with great food stuffed into great food, particularly when cheese and deep-frying are involved.

Just because the sun's a shinin' and people are walking outside with their coats wide open doesn't mean the Mayans were right. But we're going to throw them props on the mildest National Hot Chocolate Day we've ever experienced.
