The most popular recipes of 2020 are the new recipes our readers have come to again and again, including New York-style pizza, homemade Portuguese rolls, chicken shawarma, and mashed potato tacos.
New York Style PizzaSimple. Modest. Perfectly proportioned. And just like you'll find in Manhattan. Swear. And a family project that's just time-consuming enough to distract but not so tedious as to deter.
Papo Secos ~ Portuguese RollsDavid explains how to make classic Portuguese papo secos, the stuff of everyday eating, that essentially look like cherubic little baby buns and have a taste that's also divine.
Instant Pot Chicken GumboComforting. Satiating. Easy. Authentic. One-pot. And adaptable for the slow cooker, pressure cooker, or stovetop. You're welcome.
Chicken ShawarmaPermeated with an enticing and sorta (but not intimidatingly) exotic blend of spices, these chicken thighs and tender roasted onions and couldn't be easier.
Breaded Oven Fried Chicken ThighsSometimes less is more. Witness these crumb-coated thighs which come together with no fuss and are easily adaptable to whatever you have on hand.
Crispy Mashed Potato TacosMashed potatoes in a taco? We were skeptical, too. Then we made them. Now we're smitten.
Tuscan Style Roasted Leg of LambMade in traditional Italian fashion with a garlic, rosemary, lemon, and olive oil marinade and then roasted until perfectly tender. Perfect for easy, elegant holiday entertaining.
Bifanas ~ Portuguese Pork SandwichesIn the pantheon of great Portuguese foods, there are few sandwiches that are more superlative than the bifana. Essentially pork, bread, and sauce, it's comfort food at its simplest.
Cucumber and Onion SaladBlissfully simple. Outrightly old-fashioned. Sigh-inducingly cooling. Even righteously healthy. Say hello to your latest summer obsession.
Serradura ~ Portuguese Sawdust PuddingPerhaps the easiest dessert ever, this simple yet stunning Portuguese staple is made with just three ingredients. Cookies. Cream. And sweetened condensed milk.
