One of the more tedious aspects of prepping fresh cauliflower and broccoli is separating the florets from the stalk. Sure, a paring knife does the job, but it isn't necessarily the safest or most efficient method. So we were intrigued when we received a pitch for the Stalk Chop from Chef'n. The spade-shaped tool is designed to quickly and cleanly cut the florets away from the stalk of cauliflower and broccoli. We tested it on a large head of cauliflower with excellent results. We still needed a paring knife to trim the florets into smaller pieces, but after removing we were left with a clean, ready-to-slice stalk with minimal waste.

Pumped about pumpkins: Fritters, chili, soup begin with pureed fruit of fall, winter squash

Winter squash and pumpkin in particular are symbols of the season. It simply isn't fall without pumpkins.

Front Burner: Don't waste them: Roast those seeds

posted: 11/02/2016 1:56 a.m. Discuss

If you're going to the trouble of cooking fresh pumpkin or winter squash, don't let those tasty seeds go to waste. The seeds of any winter squash -- pumpkin, butternut, acorn and delicata to name a few -- can be roasted. And the whole seed is edible; so there's no need to try to remove the outer (white) husk unless you just really want to.

If you've got school-age children, you're probably busy now that it's fall. Between football games, soccer matches and other school events, kids keep you running. They also can keep you baking, with the time-honored tradition of parents having to prepare treats for booster organizations to sell as fundraisers at the school concession stand.
