How Does a Refrigerator Work?

In the refrigeration cycle, there are five basic components: fluid refrigerant; a compressor, which controls the flow of refrigerant; the condenser coils (on the outside of the fridge); the evaporator coils (on the inside of the fridge); and something called an expansion device. Here’s how they interact to cool your food.

Granola Bar Recipes to Fuel Busy Mornings

Though we’d love to spend every morning feasting on homemade pancakes and soft-scrambled eggs, the reality is that weekdays are usually just too hectic. And that often means resorting to processed store-bought breakfasts, from frozen French toast sticks to sugar-laden granola bars. The good news? There’s a delicious middle-ground that shouldn't be forgotten: homemade granola bars that will revolutionize your routine. All of these recipes can be whipped up over the weekend, then enjoyed en-route to school or the office. We recommend taking an extra minute to wrap them individually, which will make the grab-and-go process that much more seamless. The majority of the bars are no-bake as well, making them incredibly low-effort but deliciously rewarding. Because they’re homemade, these bars are packed with protein, calcium, antioxidants, and more. Whether you prefer soft-baked or crunchy, nut-filled or nut-free, we’ve got a bar that’s sure to satisfy.
