Diana Henry, the doyenne of combining every day and the exotic, was born in Northern Ireland but credits going to France in her teens with giving her a taste of the world. Her recipes are full of sparkling flavors, often healthier than they taste, and, above all, comforting. Try a few and see what you think.
Crepes Dentelles with Sautéed Apples and Caramel Sauce
Elegant and extravagant and easy. That's these thin, delicate, curiously satisfying crepes with caramelized apples and a rich caramel sauce.
Roast Pork with Crushed Grapes
An elegant yet easy approach to roast pork that draws on iconic autumn flavors. And it's as affordable as it is impressive.
Beet and Carrot Fritters
Shame we didn't have these little lovelies on our plates when we were being admonished by our parents to "Eat your veggies!"
Wine-Soaked Autumn Pudding
An autumnal take on the classic British summer pudding, melding booze and berries and apples and plums to really quite a lovely effect.
Roasted Squash with Chile and Honey
A little chile and honey elevate roasted squash to another dimension entirely. Trust us. This is not your typical roasted winter squash.
White Bean Puree, Radicchio, and Red Onions
It's remarkable what you can do with a can of beans. Here it's transformed into a pretty classy purée (aka poor man's hummus).

Folks are saying this is the simplest ice cream recipe they've ever made. They're also calling it the most satisfying.
Adobo Marinated Pork Chops
We teach you how to make your own homemade adobo and then wield it to make your weeknight meals exponentially more enticing.
Turkish Baked Eggplant With Chile, Feta, and Mint
Eggplant is roasted then stuffed with sauteed onions, red chiles, feta cheese, and topped with torn mint. A simple side dish, salad, or even a main course.
We're hearing a lot about how easy and insanely delicious this classic Mexican pork stew is. And how loved ones are clamoring to leftovers to work the next day. Sounds like a keeper to us.
Salmon, Fennel, and Apple Salad
We found ourselves swooning to the simpleness and suppleness of this lovely little salmon salad.
