ATLANTA—The L.A. Dodgers went through all the expected motions after winning a playoff series.

They broke out T-shirts and caps. They posed for pictures in the middle of SunTrust Park. They doused each other with beer in the clubhouse.

Pasta loaded with tender bites of sausage, kale and beans

Recipes
By America’S Test Kitchen The Associated Press

We had our hearts set on a one-pot pasta loaded with tender bites of browned sausage, hearty kale, and creamy cannellini beans.

The essence of crumb cake is the balance between the buttery cake and the thick, lightly spiced topping.

Starting with our favourite yellow cake recipe, we realized we needed to reduce the amount of butter or the richness would be overwhelming. We also wanted our crumb topping to be soft and cookie-like, not a crunchy streusel.
