PARADE Proudly Presents First Monthly Issue of New Food Magazine dash

The first official issue of dash, the new monthly food magazine from the publishers of PARADE, will begin monthly publication in your newspaper on or around February 9! This issue marks the celebration of matters of the heart with recipes that are simple, fast and delicious. Who said you shouldn’t eat dessert first? From chocolate pancakes to Mini King Cakes for Mardi Gras, desserts rule this Valentine’s Day! And our Good-for-You All-Stars, like salmon and broccoli, will satisfy those who want something both delicious and nutritious.

Here’s a quick peak at the February issue of dash:

Love It! A breakfast staple gets a Valentine’s makeover: Chocolate griddle cakes: Three delicious toppings will give this treat an even more lovin’ feeling, whether for couple time or kid-friendly fun (fruit slices, heavy cream and chocolate, ice cream).

Dinner in a dash
Easy Meals Under $12 includes recipes for Pasta with Peas and Ham; Potato, Bacon, and Sour Cream Frittata; Roast Chicken & Root Vegetables

Shop Smart:
Olive Oil is “much more than a salad and sauce go-to. Flavorful new oils can now be used in your favorite baked goods,” says dash. Crisco’s Cooking Spray is ranked “best” for its even coverage. Also featured: Bertolli Classico, Lucini Extra Virgin and Annie’s Roasted Garlic Flavored. Check out our recipe for a “Quickie Vinaigrette”.

Dashboard: Our Monthly Q&A Feature
Is there a real difference between salted and unsalted butter? What’s an easy, festive Oscar snack (sugar & spice popcorn!)? Are the benefits of whole grains the same whether cooked or raw?

Recipe of the Month by Giada De Laurentiis: Almond Muffins

No-Fuss Book Club Bites: Pear Wedges with Prosciutto & Mint
How to...Make Pears Kid-Friendly (with ham and cheese on crackers, in a grilled cheese sandwich, dipped in yogurt)

This Dessert Rules! Mini King Cakes—they’re a traditional Mardi Gras treat. A plastic trinket is slid inside after baking. Whoever finds it has to bring next year’s cake!

Under the direction of PARADE Editor Maggie Murphy, dash aims to help readers get simple, fast, delicious meals on the table every day. dash blends original content with some of the most popular features from four of America’s most trusted food sources: Bon Appétit,, Gourmet and PARADE.
