There are several unspoken rules in the Food52 office: A batch of Chemex coffee is meant to be shared, when pie is served in the team kitchen you have to act quickly if you want a slice, and when Josh Cohen, our Test Kitchen Chef, pulls out a Harry Potter metaphor, whatever he’s talking about is going to be good.

We’ve already told you that you shouldn’t limit your wall art to stuff in frames. Utilizing wall space is a smart solution for trinkets you pick up while traveling, knickknacks that you don’t have shelf space for, and even larger items, like your favorite throws when you aren’t cuddled up in them.

If you own more than one piece of art, you are an art collector. You are an art collector and it’s helpful to start thinking of yourself as such. Related: 3 Ways to Frame Art That Are Actually Affordable As an interior designer, I find that art selection is one of the top anxiety-producing steps in many people’s quest for a dream home. Thinking of it in terms of your personal collection will shift the mindset from “how do I fill this empty space?” to “how does this piece relate to me, my home, and the pieces around it?,” a leap that has the power to take your overall decor from Eiffel Tower canvas print to a look that reflects the unique (and badass) art collector you are.
Happy Hour—that glorious window of time when beers are $2, oysters on the half-shell sell for a dollar a piece, and cocktails are affordable—is the light at the end of a stressful work day, where that tense meeting and botched presentation are forgotten in favor of good beer and better company. Instead of rushing to the bar at 6:59 P.M. in the hopes the bartender will still charge you half-price, invite over a few pals, set up a dart board, and bring the bar home. Here’s how to bring Happy Hour to your own living room: Keep Beer on Tap Off-duty beers. (Photo: James Ransom/Food52) A 20-tap bar isn’t exactly space-efficient, but you can still have beer on tap without the bar. Set Out Fresh Oysters on the Half-Shell Yes, you can shuck oysters on your own! (Photo: James Ransom/Food52) The best Happy Hour spots are those where oysters on the half-shell flow for a buck a piece—but you don’t have to be a professional to shuck oysters.

The anticipation of a snow day is almost as good as the day itself. It’s all about imagining your dream day, one that’s full of relaxation and productivity. We stock up on bottled water and extra batteries like we’re about to go live underground for a few months (maybe that’s just my parents).

Creamy, high-protein soy milk is a staple in Asia, where estimates peg 95% of the population as lactose-intolerant. Related: Non-Dairy Milks: Which to Make, Which to Buy Since soy milk is calcium-rich and contains the equivalent amount of protein as cow’s milk, it’s regarded as the closest match to dairy. While cow’s milk is very sweet, thanks to lactose (milk sugar), soy milk is more savory in flavor, with very subtle bean-y notes. To fortify, add calcium tablets or protein powder to the finished soy milk, then blend.

It’s true: My coffee grounds—and your coffee grounds—are very happy in the compost, which is where I dump them every day, brown paper filter and all. (And then, thanks to the New York City greenmarket compost system, they go on to fertilize green spaces all over the city. It’s a pretty good life for a humble cuppa joe.)

We’re well into holiday dinner party season and it turns out fighting for space at the bar cart isn’t the only contentious part of the night—Amanda Hesser and I stand divided over whether or not seating plans are a good idea to subject your guests to. While we spend 98% of our energy on the lead-up to a dinner party—the cooking, the flowers, the table—we often neglect one of the most important details: how people mix around the table.
When you first moved in, you had good intentions: You bought a filing cabinet, carefully folded your clothes into closets and bureaus, and vowed that your kitchen countertops would never be (too) cluttered.
