Our Favorite One-Pot Dessert Recipes

We’re going to let you in on a little secret: It’s possible to make all of the cookies, cakes, fruit desserts, and ice cream dishes you love without spending hours on prep and cleanup. Here, we’re sharing one-pot desserts that are made using time-saving techniques, minimal ingredients, and revolve around easy clean up, and they offer all of the things you love about our one-pot recipes just with a sweet twist. But because desserts are slightly different than savory meals, we had to bend our one-pot rules ever so slightly: While these recipes do feature simplified prep, streamlined ingredients, and just one cooking vessel—or, in the case of the Coconut Water Granita that’s shown here, one vessel for freezing—in some cases we may require an additional bowl to mix everything together. Still, we match that extra dish to wash with smart techniques and tricks that ensure you’re able to enjoy

Our Food Editors’ Favorite New Recipes from 2020

Looking for ways to become a more confident cook at home? Our food editors are here to help. Each week, we shine a spotlight on the exciting things happening in the Martha Stewart test kitchen. Our editors will share their best cooking tips, favorite products, new ideas, and more in our weekly series, Out of the Kitchen.

Though everyone had to adjust to a new normal in 2020, one thing remained the same: our food editors’ always reliable

A Nutritionist with IBD Shares Her 5 Favorite Foods for Gut Health

The million-dollar question with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): “What should I eat?”

While there’s not a singular list of foods that everyone with IBD should toss in their grocery carts (food tolerances vary across the board), there are a handful of foods that stand out as my personal favorites for great gut health.

Bone broth is a food with ancient origins.

It’s made by slowly simmering animal bones with herbs, spices, and vegetables, as desired, for added flavor and nutrients.

Bone broth is rich in collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body, as well as other amino acids and minerals. The practice of slowly simmering bones extracts these nutrients and ends up as an easily digestible broth.
