“Grandmothers are the ultimate home cooks,” says Hawa Hassan. That’s why, for her new cookbook with Julia Turshen, In Bibi’s Kitchen, she decided to make them the focus. Part cooking guide, part educational material, and part journalistic exercise, the book features the beloved recipes, and stories, of matriarchs from eight African countries that touch the Indian Ocean. There’s Ma Gehennet, an Eritrean who emigrated first to Canada and then to New York, who shares her shiro (chickpea stew), Ma Wambui from Nairobi, who wants to dispute preconceptions that Kenyan food is “bland and uninteresting,” and Mozambique’s Ma Maria, a complete master of coconut sauce. As each talks about their food, family, and life choices, a diverse and uplifting portrait emerges about both the Eastern African coast and the African immigrant experience in America. “My ultimate goal in life is really to tell an accurate and beautiful story about the

It’s the perfect time of year to cozy up with some comfort food, and Ina Garten has some tips to make your fall and winter cooking as easy as possible.
The Barefoot Contessa, as she’s known in her popular Food Network show, stopped by TODAY’s fourth hour on Tuesday to show co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager around her East Hampton kitchen and offer some design advice.
“When I’m designing a kitchen … I think of setting the stove, the sink and refrigerator in a triangle so you can move around really well,” she explained, adding that in her own kitchen, these three appliances are “really close together, but they also have a lot of workspace in between.”
“I always like the sink to have a really nice view,” Garten, 72, continued. Her kitchen sink points to her beloved garden where she grows fresh produce and hosts outdoor dinner
It was definitely memorable.
Emma Roberts gave a tutorial today on how to throw a cute baby shower in the time of COVID-19, for your “family and pod.”
The actor, who is expecting her first child — a baby boy — with boyfriend and actor Garrett Hedlund, shared photos of her party on Instagram, which had a magical garden theme.
There were a lot of pretty moments, including her floral dress and matching mask…
And the decor, which included roses dangling from a tree.
But the most memorable decoration was definitely the vagina-shaped floral arrangement that gave Emma a “laugh.”
Flowers were incorporated in a bunch of other creative ways, too. Emma put some dainty ones in her water cup…
And flower-pressed cookies and mushroom-shaped cookies were served.
As well as “baby boy” cookies.
The actor, who has been
Everyone’s been finding ways to keep busy during lockdown, and some have opted to head out into their garden or outdoor space and get growing. One of this green-fingered number is TV presenter Holly Willoughby, who took to Instagram at the weekend to share a snap of herself growing veg.
In the picture, which was captioned with a string of gardening-related emojis, the This Morning star smiled up at the camera, trowel in hand, leaning over some spuds in planters.
Wearing a sweatshirt and wellies, Holly looked effortlessly beautiful with her hair pulled back in a retro polka dot head band.
With a large raised bed behind her and several other planters and pots, it seems Holly and her family (husband, Dan, and kids Harry, Chester and Belle) has quite the vegetable garden.
Getting out in the garden isn’t the only way they’ve been getting back to basics during lockdown,

Lori Loughlin’s younger daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, posted three snaps of herself in the bathroom, gazing at the mirror while clad in a white terrycloth robe and clutching a green smoothie.
Meanwhile, Giannulli’s older sister, Isabella, 21, also shared some selfies on Monday, captioning them “signed sealed and delivered.” In 2017, Olivia crashed her car while crooning along to the Stevie Wonder hit, “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours,” as she filmed herself with her phone.
Both siblings were set to attend USC but are no longer registered. It is alleged that their parents — “Full House” actress Loughlin and designer Mossimo Giannulli — paid $500,000 in bribes to a rowing coach at the college enabling them to gain admission. For their part, Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty and will stand trial in October, facing charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
