When roasting a chicken, try to have the skin as dry as possible. I leave my chicken uncovered in the fridge over night, and after it is roasted the skin in golden and crisp!

I use the Swiffer duster, vacuum, and wet floor cleaner and love them all for everyday cleaning. For deep cleaning you will probably want a regular vacuum and mop. If you are eco friendly, there are plenty of tutorials on making your own reusable wash covers for the vacuum and wet floor cleaner on Pinterest.

Every Sunday I saute up some sliced leeks, then I throw in a handful of frozen corn at the end to defrost. Then I mix the veggies with eggs, a splash of cream, and chopped fresh basil. Then I ladle the mixture into a cupcake tin to make mini frittatas. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Also tastes great if you add a little feta or havarti cheese. So good!

How To Make Panna Cotta Cooking Lessons from The Kitchn

I was 13 years old. My family had gone on vacation for a few days and somehow the power to the refrigerator got turned off, the ants found the rotting food, then the power went back on again causing an ant massacre. I am talking dead ants up to one inch thick in some places. I had been snotty to my mother on the trip so my punishment was cleaning the ants out of the fridge. Worst. Job. Ever. So I can feel your pain.

That looks AMAZING! Ive tried The Barefoot Contessa's onion dip and it was pretty good. But even with all the chemicals, I still think my Lipton Onion Dip is best ;).

Excellent advice, especially putting the silverware on the table instead of on the buffet. Well done!

10 Cookbooks & Food Memoirs Worth Gifting This Year Holiday Gift Guide from The Kitchn

In my family we mix the kids in with the adults as well. I remember my grandfather always wanted to sit with the grandchildren so we never had an official "kids table". This year I am hostessing Thanksgiving and I will have a table with activities for the kids, but then they will eat with everyone at the big table. You can see how I put the activity table together here: http://theglamoroushousewife.com/2013/11/kids-thanksgiving-table/

Do you think potato starch would work? I have a can of that lying around and hate to buy a box of mashed potato flakes only for this dish.

Sounds like a lot of fun! But might I make a few suggestions for your next party? First of all, you might want to pick something that doesn't have to be made so close to dinner time. For example I am cooking a turkey breast for my dinner party tonight, and all I need to do is pop it in the oven and then pull it out when it is ready.

Also I personally set my table a day ahead of time. If you only have one table that you need to use for breakfast and lunch the day of the party, then I suggest getting everything out and ready to go the day before. I know I am always figuring out I don't have enough forks, or there are spots on the wine glasses, and it takes longer than you think to set the table.

I also noticed you get ready 15 minutes before guests arrive. I suggest getting ready at least 1 hour before dinner because what ends up happening is the preparations always take longer than you think and then the door bell rings and you realize have flour all over your sweatpants and your hair is stringy and you don't have on any lipstick. Then you have to greet your guests and then leave them alone while you quick change into a dress. Getting ready ahead of time makes a HUGE difference, trust me.

Hope you have a wonderful party, and that Pad Thai sounds delish!

Is it weird that I freeze my own stock, use boxed, and also have stock paste in my fridge? I use my homemade stock for my "fancy" dinners, and I use the other two for my casual meals.

I have all of his books and just made the chicken with sumac, zaátar and lemon on Sunday and his radish and fava bean salad last night. Both were from his Ottolenghi cookbook and tasted out of this world! His vegetable dishes are my favorite because he knows how to bring out the essential flavor of each plant while incorporating exotic spices that make my taste buds dance with pleasure.

Sukkot is one of my favorite Jewish holidays. I usually work my menu around the 7 species that are holy to Jews which include wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, and dates. More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Species

I like adding barley to my meatballs and stuffed cabbage instead of breadcrumbs. It gives them a nutty flavoring which I find delish.

You can also get barberries at kosher grocery stores with a lot of Persians. I get mine at Glatt Mart on Pico in Los Angeles.
