With Earth’s population set to reach nine billion by 2050, scientists and experts have been searching for alternative food sources to feed our growing population. Honey bee brood — or the larvae and pupae of drone bees — could be one of the world’s next great sustainable food sources, according to an essay published by the Journal of Apicultural Research.

As if like a balm to the drop in temperatures and endless snowy days, the winter season also ushers in a wave of glorious citrus. We love a good grapefruit just like everyone else, but from time to time we like to give citrus a sparkling upgrade for breakfast by poaching it and using it to top everything from waffles and pancakes to your bowl of oats.

My kids aren’t that young anymore. Two are in college and one is in her waning moments of high school. Now that my oldest two live off campus for the very first time and have their own full kitchens, it was time to start their cookbook library, so I bought them their first 10. Now, I realize that they don’t consult books often. They text me or FaceTime me when they have questions and sometimes after they search something online, they call me to see what I think (I don’t lack for opinions).
But having a kitchen meant they would have plenty of cooking opportunities, and me and my opinions shouldn’t be the end-all-be-all. I know that the best way to learn is to be taught by many people, in many ways, with many approaches, and many angles. It was now, without a doubt, my charge as parent to focus on what I like to do best of all: to teach them, to show them, to offer them the best, most reliable information, and then to let them do it. I want them to have books that I know they will use so they can, hopefully, learn to treasure the value of cooking from a book.

Few things can beat easing into a winter day with a warm stack of fluffy pancakes. While maple syrup is the usual go-to pairing, it’s far from the only way to give your pancakes the sticky-sweet topping they deserve.
