For many of us, porridge is more of a concept than an actual dish – one that exists within the imaginary backdrops of fairy tales, nursery rhymes and childhood adventure stories. It’s the wholesome breakfast of choice for Goldilocks and the three bears; for Oliver Twist, it’s the base for a sad, watered-down dish known as “gruel” – a name so very fitting for the lumpy gray matter. As a kid, this split left me wondering whether porridge could be a source of nutrition and comfort, and simultaneously a vehicle for cruel and unusual punishment. Yet neither of these possibilities help to clear up the real question – what, exactly, is porridge? And how does it differ, if it all, from oatmeal?

Appetizers, chips and beer don’t have to the be only stars of your Super Bowl party spread. Skipping the main dish seems tempting, but seriously — an hours-long party cannot survive on dip alone. By the time the second quarter ends, your guests will start nosing around for a dish that’s a little more hearty. Add one of these savory mains to your buffet this year.

Mash-up dishes are all the rage right now, but our cheeseburger-meets-pizza dish isn’t gimmicky — it’s just majorly delicious.

Even though it’s “new year, new you” season, there are some things we’ll never change — like the meals we make ourselves over and over again. But if you want to freshen up the ol’ routine, you might try a new (and, dare we say, potentially better) technique for getting your favorite flavor fix. These new recipes come with clever twists that give meal prep a makeover.
Sideways Lasagna Roll-Ups (above)
This family-friendly dish (stuffed with the creamy ricotta and comforting sauce that always pleases everyone) becomes worthy of a dinner party with some small tweaks: Build the recipe in a springform pan so you can display it dramatically on a platter, and turn the roll-ups on their sides to show-off the pretty lasagna ruffles and crannies filled with cheese.

If you make a New Year’s resolution pertaining to food, it likely falls under the umbrella “eat better.” Maybe you have a health goal in mind, or maybe you’d like to learn new dishes — no matter the goal, specificity is key in helping you accomplish it. We asked Food Network staffers what their food resolutions were this year (we tend to think about food a lot so, of course, we’ve got ‘em!). We hope their out-of-the-box thinking (one of us has a resolution about ice cream, people), can inspire some creative ideas for you this year too.
Eat pretty to eat better.
“I want to prepare healthy dishes that are plated beautifully, so as to make eating ‘clean’ as visually appealing and appetizing as possible.”

If one of your 2017 resolutions is to pack your lunch more often (or make better lunches — or, heck, eat lunch at all!), start here. These easy ideas prove that “make-ahead” doesn’t always mean “sandwich,” and that “nutritious” doesn’t have to mean “carrot sticks.”
Just-Add-Water Shrimp Paella Soup (above)
It only takes five minutes of night-before prep to be the envy of your office at lunch the next day. Rice, corn, peas, shrimp and chorizo just need a little hot water to turn into a warm dish at your desk. (Be a nice cubemate and give your work friends the recipe.)
