Beans in your beef stew make it deliciously leaner

Picture this: after a long day at the office (or at the kids’ soccer field or wherever) you turn the key to open your front door and you are greeted by the heady aroma of a steamy meaty stew. You have been richly rewarded for spending mere minutes in the morning assembling dinner in your slow cooker.

Hans Wegner’s designs revamped

Legendary furniture designer Hans. J. Wegner (1914—2007) designed upwards of 500 chairs in his lifetime, more than 100 of which were mass produced.

Farro has regained its legions of admirers

Farro is one of the ancient grains making a big comeback today, and with good reason, as it brings flair, flavor and whole-grain nutrition to the table in an easy, accessible way. It is a type of wheat that resembles grains of barley, but with a nuttier flavor and delightful chewiness. It’s perfect for today’s home cook, because it is simple to prepare — you basically boil it like rice — and it is ready in about 30 minutes. No soaking necessary.
