Is It Too Soon to Have Parenting Regrets?

  Is It Too Soon to Have Parenting Regrets? As a parent of two young kids, people always say to me, "Enjoy them! They grow up so fast." While the message seems like an innocent enough "stop and smell the roses" thing, I perceive it to be more of a "you're a terrible parent" thing. And if you like to go deep subtext like me: "I'm a better parent than you.

Crispy chickpeas are one of those things you either need to nail, or it’s a total disappointment. Almost crispy chickpeas just don’t cut it. In my opinion, they need to be golden and crispy and salty and crunchy—as in, so crunchy I disrupt others around me when I bite into them—and I need to be able to achieve that every single time.

Until recently, my results were inconsistent. My best attempts came from pan-frying, but I was determined to find a method that required less oil.

Here’s how to make crispy oven-baked chickpeas:

1. Preheat the oven to 450°F and place a rimmed baking sheet in the oven while it preheats. I've found this to be the ideal oven temperature because it’s hot, but not so scorching hot it will burn the outsides of the chickpeas without cooking the insides. Pre-heating the baking sheet ensures the chickpeas crisp as soon as they hit the hot pan.

2. Drain and rinse a 15.5 oz. can of chickpeas, then pat very dry with paper towels. Any residual moisture will cause the chickpeas to steam instead of crisp.

Confessions Of An...A&E Doctor

  Confessions Of An...A&E Doctor Most of us dread the thought of ending up in hospital, but there are some people who actually choose to be there. It’s hard not to respect the work of doctors and nurses, especially the junior ones who earn a fraction of what senior staff make and work long hours under intense pressure. It doesn't get much more serious than looking after the nation's health. Here, one A&E doctor talks candidly about the hours, upsets and daily tribulations of her hospital job.What's the best thing about your job?The variety of patients and activity, and working with an amazing team.

3. When they’re dry, toss the chickpeas with 1 tablespoon olive oil and ¼ teaspoon each kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven, place the chickpeas on in an even layer, and return to the oven. Roast, shaking the pan halfway through, until crispy, 20 to 25 minutes. If you want, try switching up the seasonings—smoked paprika is a great option for spicy food lovers.

Now for the best part—eating them!! They're addictive as is (you'll find yourself eating them by the handful off the baking sheet), but they can also be used anywhere you'd want a crouton or something crunchy.

Try them on salads or soups, paired with roasted veggies (just cook the veggies in the oven alongside them, rotating the baking sheets halfway through), or as a topper to a grain bowl. Most recently, I paired them with roasted cauliflower, a lemon-y kale salad, and a punchy tahini dressing. Dee-lish.

Not Ready to Be Vegan? Try Being a Reducetarian

  Not Ready to Be Vegan? Try Being a Reducetarian As more and more people are embracing a plant-based diet, they're cutting back on meat and even embracing a full-on vegan diet. But if you want to eat a more plant-based diet but don't want to give up meat entirely? Then maybe you should try being a reducetarian. It's a pretty simple concept: a reducetarian is someone who purposefully reduces their consumption of meat and other animal products. This includes red meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, and eggs. Although the reducetarian movement has roots in an environmental cause, a reducetarian doesn't have to have a specific reason for eating less meat.

Ice Cubes: Unless you have a high-powered blender that’s up to the challenge, putting ice cubes in your blender can dull the blade. Ditto for big chunks of frozen fruit.
