Chips and salsa are overrated. (Yes, we said it.) Switch up your snack routine with Hill Country chef Elizabeth Karmel’s pimiento cheese recipe. The Southern classic tastes great on almost everything (like breakfast tacos), and all you need are four simple ingredients. An empty stomach and serious cheese addiction help, too.
For more information on Karmel, go to hillcountryny.com.

It takes balls to cover Queen Bey.
Singer/songwriter Emeli Sandé, who sings “Crazy in Love” on the Jay-Z produced Great Gatsby sound track, doesn’t need ’em: Her voice is unreal (and her hair is pretty slick, too).
In today’s 5 Questions with SuChin Pak video, Sandé tells us what’s changed since she’s become a star (her song “Next to Me” is everywhere), what she sings in the shower, and the best advice she’s ever gotten. She even sings the first lyric she ever wrote, at age 7, about aliens.
In case you’re wondering, the interview takes place at JFK, as Sandé joins the ranks of Taylor Swift, Ellie Goulding, and Robyn for JetBlue’s Live from T5 concert series.
These girls run the world.
In today’s installment, SuChin has three recommendations for what you should get your mama this Mother’s Day. Just a warning: You’ll want to buy all three things for yourself, too.
Fact: Some people have more hours in their days than the rest of us.
Designer Lele Sadoughi sits among these unicorns: She started J.Crew’s jewelry division, heads it up at Tory Burch, and launched her own collection for Spring 2013. And she had a baby a month ago.
In today’s Inside Story, we took of a tour of Sadoughi’s Greenwich Village pad, from the thousands of pieces of costume jewelry to table settings fit for a queen. The coolest part? Almost everything is from flea markets and eBay (she even divulged her search terms).
While we were there, Sadoughi gave us a peek at her fall collection, and it’s just as vibrant and colorful as the rooms she inhabits.
If, that is, she’s a real person.
Sometimes all your outfit needs is a little silk flower, an intellectual-looking pair of glasses, or a sophisticated bow necklace to make it sing. In this installment of our weekly series, SuChin has recommendations for all of the above.

If getting the kids up, dressed, and out of the house is a major production, raise both your hands. Now, inhale deeply, center your hands in prayer position, and exhale while clicking play on the video above.
If these four easy tricks don’t turn your morning routine into breezy fun, take a deep breath and try again.

We’re not sure if oysters are aphrodisiacs, but (in the name of science) we’re willing to eat hundreds to find out.
The fruits of our labor: an In the Kitchen video with Lisa Giffen, executive chef at Maison Premiere in Williamsburg, who shows us how to choose, shuck, and eat (slurp or fork?) an oyster.
The restaurant is our favorite place in the city for bivalves, especially once its paradise of an outdoor space opens (which will be in two to three weeks or “as soon as everything’s in bloom”).
Even our editor who swore off oysters fifteen years ago came away wanting more.
That’s what he said.
Maison Premiere, 298 Bedford Avenue, between Grand and South 1st Streets (347-335-0446 or maisonpremiere.com). Hungry for more? Check out our videos on drinking Scotch, making fish tacos, and cooking a juicy burger. And, by all means, vote for us to win a Webby.

You may remember our office guy, Dan (exceedingly handsome, answered burning relationship questions). Well, his dog, Puppy, was spotted by a talent agent, and they moved to Tinseltown.
So we embarked on a manhunt. Introducing the new and improved Ask the Office Guy series, in which we approach (adorable) men who work at our favorite companies and ask for their advice.
