We’ve got stars in our eyes…and our bowls…and our spoons…all thanks to pastina, the teensy star-shaped pasta. It just may be the cutest supper in the solar system.
Infinitely more complex than the toddy of yore, this little number owes its lure to apple-y cider spiked with a hint of star anise and quite an indecent glug of bourbon.
Straight from Venice by way of Charleston, this Southern belle cheats a little, usurping the role of vanilla gelato with butter pecan ice cream.
A soupy, stewy, smoky chili with stealth veggie goodness galore, including the likes of zucchini, bell peppers, and more. Healthful never tasted so darn good.
Jambalaya just doesn’t get any more authentic than this deeply flavored, deeply revered rendition from Cajun country.
Indulgence rarely comes as easily as this inspired creation, keeping the attention squarely where it ought to be: figs, ricotta, pistachios, and honey.
Some things never go out of style. They just take on a somewhat newish look now and again. Witness these kid-friendly drumsticks rolled in crumbs of any sort.
No ice cream maker required. Just watermelon, citrus, sweetness, mint, and a whole lotta cold. Vodka optional. Then just scoop it up and plop it in a pretty bowl.
This proper summer pudding, made from late-season berries, currants, sugar, and sliced bread, is utterly British. Not to mention stunning. And sublime. And summery.
This herby vinaigrette boasts ample flavor to flaunt throughout the meal on salad, veggies, grilled chicken, roast fish. Drizzle it here, there, everywhere.
Nothing helps a vegetable go down without a struggle like a little sweetness. We’re particularly fond of this lovely zucchini delivery system.
Drizzle, douse, souse, or otherwise acquaint this emerald elixir with grilled steak, chicken, chops, seafood, or heck, anything.
Grab your appetite, your beer, and your napkins. This burger melds Cheddar, crisped onions, and a horseradish-spiked sauce to messy, if memorable, effect.
Sweet and simple. Nothing but cabbage, cider vinegar, sugar, mayo, a little onion, salt, and oil. Just like you’d find at a BBQ shack.
