As EatingWell's senior food features editor, Carolyn Malcoun searches for cool farmers, chefs and other food stories to tell. Carolyn has nearly two decades of experience developing recipes and writing and editing feature stories and cookbooks. She started at EatingWell as an intern in the Test Kitchen in 2005 and joined the editorial team soon after. Carolyn has also written for Draft Magazine, Modern Farmer and Cooking Light.

Her culinary interest is rooted in her childhood: baking thousands of Christmas cookies every year with her mom (her favorite: pecan tartlets), picking leaves off bunches of parsley to make tabbouleh with her Lebanese dad, and churning out beef bourguignon and French silk pie at age 10.

Though she's lived in Michigan, Arizona, Texas, Maine, Wisconsin and Minnesota, Carolyn says Vermont felt like home from the moment she arrived there. She has a way-too-big garden and loves exploring the outdoors (be it hiking, ski touring, snowshoeing, biking, camping) with her husband, daughter and two dogs. Carolyn has a deep-seated love for live music, sour beers and Mexican food.

This set-it-and-forget-it slow-cooker recipe simmers away all day so you come home to a warm and healthy dinner the whole family will love. Using bone-in chicken is the key to making rich soup without adding broth.
This comforting slow-cooker soup is inspired by pho, the traditional Vietnamese noodle dish made with rice noodles and meat, and served in a flavorful, clear broth with a multitude of garnishes. For this recipe, we've used low-sodium chicken broth seasoned with star anise, clove, ginger and cinnamon. Ngo gai (culantro) and onion are also commonly used to flavor the broth. It's perfect for the slow-cooker because pho usually simmers for at least three hours, becoming infused with the flavor of the spices. For garnishing, we've lined up bean sprouts, basil, mint, cilantro, sliced chile and lime wedges, but you could also use cabbage or scallions. One of the best parts of this dish is how customizable it is.
This quick, protein-rich chicken stew recipe draws flavor inspiration from shawarma with spices like cumin, paprika and pepper. Make a double batch and freeze it for a quick healthy dinner. Serve the stew with couscous and steamed broccoli.
Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette
Rating: Unrated
While a 1-to-2 acid-to-oil ratio is common for vinaigrettes, shifting it to 1-to-1½ yields a dressing with a brighter flavor and fewer calories. For every ½ cup of acid, use 3/4 cup of oil in this salad dressing recipe.
Though a chicken cutlet may be a chicken breast cut in half, this recipe shows how to make chicken cutlets with double the deliciousness. A jar of sun-dried tomatoes does double duty for this healthy dinner idea.
