Pecan pie with smooth-textured filling, nice crust

There is much to love about sweet, nutty pecan pie, but it’s easy for this simple dessert to turn out tooth achingly sugary and void of pecan flavor, with a curdled filling sogging a leathery crust. We wanted to create the ideal recipe for a not-too-sweet pie with a smooth-textured filling and a properly baked bottom crust. We decided to […]

Want a crisp, moist turkey with perfect skin? No sweat

Unless you have access to multiple ovens, only a very large turkey will do when you’ve got a crowd coming to dinner.

Wahlberg shines in ‘Instant Family’

By JILL DOBSON NEW YORK Mark Wahlberg may be known for his tough-guy image thanks to movies including “Mile 22” and “The Departed,” or for his straight-up comedic roles like in “Daddy’s Home” and “Ted,” but he tugs at the heartstrings in his latest movie, “Instant Family.” “Instant Family,” which arrived in theaters November 16, stars Wahlberg and Rose Byrne […]
