Dalgona coffee craze: Follow this recipe to make a pillowy, picture-perfect drink

por Clayton McCarthy (2020-05-15)

This tomato- and garlic-flavored rice has what it takes to balance out robust dishes like refried beans or heavily spiced meats. Serve with fajitas or quesadillas of course -- or grilled shrimp, roasted chicken and so on. Get Chowhound's Spanish rice recipe.

For me, it's easy to feel like every Android phone has drastically different features and capabilities, and in some ways that's true. Comparing a Pixel phone with Samsung's Galaxy S20 with TCL's 10 Series phones is going to reveal major differences. But at the end of the day, all of those phones are powered by Android, and at their core, have the same features. 

Key Ingredient claims to have "the largest user-generated source of online recipes in North America," with over two million at your disposal whenever you're connected to Wi-Fi. And if you don't find what you're looking for, you can add your own recipes, too.

In addition to being more mess-resistant than your typical device, the Recipe Tablet also has text-to-speech technology. That means that you can skip scrolling with raw-chicken-fingers and let it read the cooking instructions to you. The Recipe Tablet also has a built-in stand for easy viewing and relies on a digital highlighter so you are less likely to lose your place.

I'm not sure I'm totally sold on this idea. $150 isn't over-the-top expensive, but you could just buy a heavy-duty protective case for your existing phone or tablet and use the same Key Ingredient database. Still, it might be nice to have a separate device that stays in the kitchen and is already set up to handle whatever comes its way (a 90-day warranty is included).

Beyond how easy it is to prepare, this creme brulee hack is a make-ahead dish. Prep the custard in the afternoon, refrigerate and when you're ready to serve a fancy dessert later that evening, just gently caramelize sugar in a small pan, pour and you're golden. Get the three-ingredient creme brulee recipe.

If you're using your own box, you'll need to know the exact weight of the package you're sending. Here's a better way. USPS offers a flat-rate service that lets you order free boxes and ship packages up to 70 pounds. Shipping prices start at $7.50, depending on the package size. To avoid having to tape it at the post office, most people can choose the medium side-load box option.

The basic recipe includes a mere five ingredients -- instant coffee, sugar, water, milk and ice -- and is easy to prepare at home by yourself or with your kids. The beauty of this beverage is that it's open to a dozen variations. Decaf versions won't keep you up all night. Almond milk and coconut sugar work as well as the standard fare. Lemon zest and mint can jazz up the milk. You can add a shot of booze and even extra caffeine. 

Maybe it's a care package or a bunch of face masks you made or a returned purchase. Whatever it is, do you really want to wait in line at the post office to ship your package? Long lines and social distancing while wearing a possibly uncomfortable face mask sounds like a bad recipe to us. We'd much prefer to skip the line. It isn't all that hard. Once you have the right supplies, you can easily prep your package at home and drop it off. Here's the best trick -- you can even get your shipping boxes for free, from the USPS itself.

Once you've got the item boxed up, you'll need to print a prepaid shipping label from USPS. To do so, log in to your USPS account, navigate to Click N Ship and purchase your shipping label. You can then print the label at home and tape it to your box.

Five-ingredient recipes are great, but if even that sounds daunting, don't despair: You can cut it down to three ingredients and still have a delicious dessert, side or even a three-ingredient main dish for a truly easy meal.

But in this case, it's the maximum ingredients (with exceptions for water, salt and pepper -- let's be reasonable here) required to make a variety of delicious recipes. That's right, the mind-blowing selections featured below are prepared with only three components, which makes them ideal during a time when grocery shopping is particularly stressful. Not only do they deliver on flavor, by keeping things minimal you'll save on money, cooking time and cleanup.

Apple's latest iPhone SE for 2020 is a budget phone that serves as a sequel to its sleeper hit from 2016, the first iPhone SE. For the most part, the new iPhone SE follows Apple's original recipe. But it also added new upgrades like wireless charging and the A13 Bionic processor. At $399, the device is the most affordable iPhone in Apple's lineup today, offering modern hardware and iOS 13 features to more cost-conscious consumers.

Featuring chilis, herbs, scallions and lime, arroz verde really runs with the green theme, exploring all of the different shades and flavors you can get out of one color.
