    If you're anything like me, you can fall into a food rut. You know, when you wind up eating the same thing time and time again? It's not the food's fault, but day in and day out, eating the foods -- even ones we love -- can start to feel like a really boring routine. It's not our fault either. We lead busy lives, and sometimes it's easier to just go ahead and pick the fast, easy, well-known option than it is to spend even five minutes doing something to spice up your food-life.

    But it doesn't have to be that way! Our once-favorite foods can be something we look forward to once again, and all it takes is just a little bit of imagination. We're here to help! You don't need to scour the web looking endlessly for new ways to turn stuff like oatmeal or macaroni and cheese into novelties -- because we've done the heavy lifting for you!

    There's nothing better for the soul, especially in the wintertime, than a good old-fashioned Crock-Pot chicken dinner. Think about it: you're stuck at work longer than usual, the sun has gone down early, and the air contains a wicked chill. Your evening commute is long and cold. The last thing you want to do is walk through your door and have to prepare dinner for four. Slow cooker meals, like this amazing chicken and dumplings recipe, can be prepared well in advance and are ready to feed your family when you're ready to eat. This recipe takes just 10 minutes of prep time, cooks in 6 hours, and feeds 8 hungry folks. Perfection in one pot!

    Inspired by an Asian recipe, Hudson Valley based Chef Ryan McClintock brought this green bean dish to the Italian side with a fresh herbaceous handmade aioli. Aioli is basically the best mayonnaise you've ever had -- with a twist. Pair the warm green beans with salt cured radishes for a bitter and sharp combination. Once the aioli is added, this makes a great vegetable dish or starter.  

    You can taste Ryan's dishes at the highly regarded farm to table restaurant Global Palate in West Park, NY, where he is Sous Chef. Here is the recipe for these delicious warm blistered green beans and salt cured radishes with a cool aioli you'll want to put on everything.

    Ooh, it's been a brutal winter, and we still have weeks to go. How will we ever survive? Through the magic of crock-pot stews, that's how! After trudging home from work through the cold and slush I would really appreciate it if there were a hot meal waiting for me. Why isn't that happening? Because 1. I haven't taught my 10-year-old how to cook yet and because 2. I don't have servants. But there is a work-around! Ye olde crock-pot. Just a little prep before I leave for the day and dinner will be waiting to warm my belly by night. Here's some soul-warming stews we think will hit the spot.

    I discovered Cajun seasoning way too late in my life, but since a good friend from Louisiana opened my eyes to this amazing spice, I'm always on the lookout for great recipes that incorporate unique flavors from the Deep South.

It's simple to make, takes about 25 minutes -- perfect for busy weekdays -- AND blends the best of New Orleans and Italy in one dish. Bring it on!

    You obviously know what this weekend is ... it's Super Bowl Sunday! The Denver Broncos are taking on the Seattle Seahawks in what should be an exciting matchup, but what we're all really concerned with is the commercials food. Chili, wings, nachos, dips, beer, it's a glutton's dream come true. What better way to kick off the biggest game of the year than by whipping up your very own chicken wings? The best part? You can do it in your slow cooker.

    That's right, get a jump start on these babies early in the morning, then have them warm and juicy and ready to go when the game starts at 6:30 p.m. These wings, from Betty Crocker, have a teriyaki twist for even more flavor. So easy and delicious, you'll love the convenience of being able to use your slow cooker anget to enjoy wings that have been slowly marinating all day for five hours! Is it Sunday yet?

    You've got to admit it: lots of us will watch some pretty inane things on YouTube just because. From videos of parents letting their kids gets mauled by cats to clips of teens shamelessly pouring their hearts out to their girlfriends, anything goes these days. One of the latest viral video trends is one I totally don't understand but find fascinating and, dare I say, even a little inspirational? It seems a great many people love to watch other people eat food.

    If this "movement" has a star, her name is Park Seo-Yeon, a South Korean woman who goes by the name "The Diva." The Diva cooks big meals for herself each night -- everything from noodles to pizza and steak -- and streams herself from 8 or 9 p.m. until whenever, just sitting back at her table alone, eating every morsel of her yummy creations. And get this: she earns more than $9,000 a month from eating -- which was enough to quit her full-time job!

    Are you a meat and potatoes kind of person? In these frigid temps, it sounds as tempting as ever, doesn't it? There's nothing quite like a tender, juicy steak alongside some freshly whipped up mashed potatoes to soothe that comfort food craving (okay, okay, so you should probably add a salad on the side to get your greens in for the day and not look like a complete glutton).

    That's why this steak, mashed potatoes & salad recipe from Food Network is so insanely awesome. No fuss, no frills, and obviously you can switch up whatever you'd like (especially for the salad ingredients) for a truly versatile, easy dinner.

    Pair this hearty meal with a big glass of red wine and you'll be sure to kiss your winter blues goodbye. Break out the steak knives and enjoy!

    Like every good Italian girl, I appreciate a well-made meatball sandwich. There's just something about the combination of textures -- crispy French bread meeting cheesy, aromatic chopped meat -- that makes my taste buds very happy. But I'll be honest. Your typical meatball hero can get a little boring. There, I said it.

    So I was over the moon to find a recipe that incorporates a few unorthodox ingredients and really kicks your meatball sandwich up a few notches. Chili powder? Check. Cinnamon? Yes, please. Allspice? Now we're talking.
