When blogger Luisa Weiss, aka The Wednesday Chef, thinks of home, there’s one recipe that comes to mind.
Slightly tart and eminently easy, this tomatillo sauce makes ample so you can stash some in the fridge for later. Cook once, eat twice.
A Mexican staple, this sauce of sorts is essentially fresh salsa that’s named, curiously, for a rooster’s beak.
Some things are so simple as to seem almost plain—until you taste them. Hollandaise is one such perfectly simple staple.
Sophisticated palates accustomed to European-style cookies will swoon to this subtly sweet and slightly crumbly treat.
Pricey but not pretentious, a standing rib roast is essentially a slab of bone-in rib eye steaks standing on end. You could do worse, eh?
We’re not certain which we find more incredulous, the sheer genius behind these bacon fat gingersnaps or the flavor of said genius.
This confluence of cheeses is like a lazy man’s croque monsieur. Cheesy faux French accent and glass of wine optional.
If you’ve yet to heat butter ’till it turns nutty brown then dribble it over any and every thing, you’ve yet to live. Here, let us show you how.
One taste and you’ll forget all about that butter and brown sugar trick your mom taught you long ago. Promise.
Maybe what the world needs is a single currency. Like jars of this sweet, rich bacon jam. It makes everything better.
Sorta like potato gratin, except the nutty, cheesy white sauce swaddles leaves of spinach, not sliced spuds. Sure beats salad.
