Pieces of batter-fried chicken piled on a white platter.

Batter-Fried Chicken

Proof that it doesn’t take buttermilk or an insufferably long overnight brine to make insanely tender, crazily crisp, gosh darn perfect fried chicken.

A partially shredded roast pork butt in a roasting pan with a cup of barbecue sauce and two forks.

Roast Pork Butt

Excuse us, but we’re too preoccupied stuffing our pieholes with roast pork butt to say anything. Hey, anyone seen the napkins?!

Cheddar cornbread in a cast-iron skillet, cut into 8 wedges, with one wedge removed.

Two and a half bacon fat peanut butter cookies on two stacked green plates with a stack of cookies in the background.

Pulled pork tacos with habanero salas and pickled onions on flour tortillas.

Pulled Pork Tacos with Habanero Salsa

An ancho-imbued version of Yucan-style slow-roasted pork that’s intoxicatingly aromatic and, with apologies to tradition, slowly cooked in your oven rather than a freshly dug pit.

A bowl of onion dip surrounded by carrots, cucumbers, and radishes on a wooden board.

Onion Dip

“The onion dip to end all onion dips.” “Sublime.” “Light years beyond those soup packets.” That’s what folks are saying about this creamy dip that puts to shame all other onion dips.
