This week on America’s Test Kitchen Radio, we investigate the confusing world of weight loss. Why do some people lose weight more easily than others? Is it all about environmental factors or do genetics play a role? We’ll find out what’s hot and what’s not in the world of kitchen gadgets, and we’ll learn all about measuring cups from gadget guru Lisa McManus. Then we’ll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make quick tomato sauce year-round. And of course we’ll be taking your calls to answer all of your cooking questions.
