Try this updated version of the classic Waldorf Astoria salad

Crunchy apples, celery and walnuts mixed with turkey make a crisp, cool salad perfect for a hot summer night or anytime. The original combination of apples, celery and mayonnaise was served at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City over 100 years ago. This updated version still has the pleasing combination of textures and flavors that has made the salad a classic.

Kitchen Curious: The easiest ice cream ever

I spend an inordinate amount of time flipping through cookbooks and food magazines. I salivate over glossy photos of peach pie and slices of too-moist-to-be-true double-decker chocolate cake. I lick my fingers while staring at gorgeous close-ups of glazed chicken wings, imagining the tingle of sweet heat on my tongue. All that beautifully styled food draws me in, but then I'll read the recipe and say, "no way."

Clink glasses full of red with your comrades for Labor Day

In theory there are no wine-drinking seasons. You could say that late November is Beaujolais nouveau-drinking season – current vintages are released at that time of year, of course – or that late December is the prime season for drinking sparkling wine, but depending on where you are at those times of year, the outside temperature could vary immensely. Sparkling wine has no particular affinity for the snowy Decembers of Wyoming, nor does Beaujolais nouveau seem a logical choice for the balmy Novembers of Key West.
