Back in 1995, when our Chief Travel Correspondent was only about five months old, her great grandmother Olga came to stay with us for a bit. I can't remember how it was decided, only that she "liked to clean." I think it was maybe "compelled to clean." Nevertheless, our windowsills were, in fact, spotless for the weeks of her visit.
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and for many of us, that means it’s Shamrock Shake season. If you’re too embarrassed to hit the McDonald’s drive-through—you may have food blogger cred to maintain, after all—we’ve rounded up six recipes to help you get your fix. From boozy to healthy, BlogHer’s food bloggers have you covered. There are even recipes for Shamrock Shake-inspired cupcakes and a layer cake.

I can always eat chicken salad. I find myself making a special trip to the market at lunchtime on many days, to stand in front of the deli counter case, waiting on someone to magically appear and fill up a tiny little plastic tub of chicken salad. Screw that! I'm making my own homemade chicken salad....more
My latest experiment in cheesy + healthy comfort food is this Twice-Baked Spaghetti Squash with Kale, Feta, and Mozzarella. It's low-carb, gluten-free, and vegetarian. But most important, it's a deliciously cheesy casserole that I'd happily gobble down for a main dish or side dish.
