These fragrant chicken-lemongrass dumplings can be customized: "Swap in ground turkey or pork, if you prefer, or use a combination of proteins," advises New York City–based recipe developer Beth Lipton. Bruising the lemongrass by gently hitting it with the blunt side of a knife releases its floral, slightly grassy flavor. Make the dipping sauce up to three days ahead and check out these recommendations for different cooking and folding techniques.

If you’re having trouble understanding your trainer or a friend talking through a mask, ask them to “speak clearly.” A recent study published in the journal Cognition found that doing so helps overcome the disadvantages of face-masked speech, even in noisy conditions. While researchers stress this finding was for younger adults with no hearing impairments, these potentially beneficial adjustments are simple: Talk louder (without shouting), slower, and with more exaggerated enunciation, says study author Michelle Cohn, Ph.D., postdoctoral fellow at University of California, Davis.
