Is It a Jacket? Is It a Sweatshirt? Amazon Shoppers Say This Layer Fulfills All Their Coziness Needs
And it costs under $45.
We love Valentine's Day because it's one of the sweetest seasons. Every year, we look forward to all of the classic heart-shaped goodies and pretty pink treats, as well as the slew of new products like Hostess Dark Raspberry Cupcakes and Valentine's Funfetti Cake Mix. © Via The Kraft Heinz Company
This year already promises to be a little different, though. Earlier this week, Kraft announced a limited-edition Candy Mac & Cheese for Valentine's Day. Seriously. OK, we really didn't expect pink candy macaroni and cheese, but we'll take it!
Does It Really Taste Like Candy?
Yes! At least that's what Kraft is advertising. We have yet to taste test this limited-edition product, so for all we know the packet of flavoring powder contains crushed-up red hots. But what gives us pause is that this macaroni and cheese isn't being presented a dessert, but as a candy-flavored magenta version of the cheesy classic. Color us intrigued.
12 Cashmere Sweaters to Buy From Nordstrom’s Huge Winter Sale
They’re as little as $30 right now.If you look closely, Nordstrom's sweater sale section has more than 1,000 styles for up to 68 percent off right now, including cashmere sweaters for as little as $30. Shopper- and celebrity-loved brands like AllSaints, Vince, Reformation, Alex Mill, Theory, and Nordstrom's own Halogen are all included, making it the perfect time to stock up on classic, essential sweaters that every well-rounded closet needs.
If you're the type who worries about artificial dyes and flavors, rest assured that the bright pink hue is achieved by using beet and carrot concentrates. If you want to skip the store-bought food coloring, try these natural food dyes instead.
How Do I Get My Hands on a Box?
It doesn't look like this limited-edition treat will be sold next to the usual mac and cheese. If you want a box, you'll have to head to CandyKraftMacandCheese.com on February 8, between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. CST, to enter a contest. This was the same process offered to score Kraft's other foray into unusual seasonal flavors—the brand actually launched a pumpkin spice mac and cheese version last fall.
Only a lucky 1,000 will win a box of pink mac in time for Valentine's Day. Good luck!

Who doesn't love a big helping rice? Whether it's in a burrito, rolled up in sushi, served as a side with dinner or any other of the seemingly million ways to use it, rice is the perfect way to bulk up a dish. While rice is relatively straightforward to cook, just adding it to a pot with water, it's incredibly easy to mess up. Here are some common ways that rice goes wrong, and how to make sure your next pot is absolutely perfect!
Psst! Check out these delicious ways to enjoy rice.
The Problem: Burnt Bottom
The Solution: Turn your burner way down. A scorched pot probably means that the burner setting is too high. Set your burner to the lowest setting possible when cooking rice—the steam should be doing all the work, rather than the burner. Also double check that you’re using a heavy-bottomed pot, like a Dutch oven, as a thin pot will expose the grains to too much direct heat.
Drinking Your Coffee This Way Every Day Can Extend Your Life, Science Says
A new study found that over 20,000 Italians have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer and will live longer thanks to espresso.A new study published Dec. 31, 2020 in The Journal of Nutrition looks at the relationship between 20,487 people and their daily intake of "Italian-style" coffee, or espresso. None of the participants had cardiovascular disease or cancer at the beginning of the experiment and each drank around 30 mL of espresso a day or more for over eight years. This is about the size of one shot of espresso.
The Problem: Mushy or Hard Rice
The Solution: Double check your water-to-rice. Here's a handy guide:
The Problem: Crunchy Rice
The Solution: Make sure your lid is tight. If the lid of your rice pot doesn’t seal properly, steam will escape the pot rather than cooking your rice. An easy remedy is to lay a clean kitchen towel between the pot and lid to keep steam from getting out. Just make sure the towel isn’t touching your burner. By the way, here's how to cook wild rice.
The Problem: Uneven Cooking
The Solution: Give your rice a little rest. As tempting as it is to dig into a pot of rice right when its done, letting your rice sit for 10 or 15 minutes, off heat, lets the heat redistribute in the pot, leading to a more evenly cooked pot of rice.
The Problem: Always Tastes Bland
The Solution: Add some flavor in! Toss in some butter or olive oil, along with some salt and pepper, into your pot when pouring in your rice for a more flavorful end result. Another easy way to boost flavor is by replacing your cooking water with chicken, beef or vegetable both. You can also lightly toast your rice in the pot before adding your cooking liquid for a nutty taste.
