A soft green casserole dish filed with lightly charred broccolini, kale, and green beans, sprinkled with chile flakes and garlic.

Charred Greens with Garlic

An exceptionally tasty way to prepare a side of supergreens that’ll give your dinner a little boost. Red pepper flakes and raw garlic make it even better.

5 panko breaded chicken tenders drizzled with deep red hot sauce and chile slices, with a bowl of more spicy honey and a honey dipper.

Hot Honey Chicken Tenders

Chicken tenders will always be a universal favorite–we’d eat them any time of day, to be honest. Then slathered with hot honey? Heck yes.

A large rectangular key lime pie cut into sixths, covered with whipping cream and slices of lime, covered with lime zest and sliced limes next to it.

Key Lime Rum Tart

A tangy and creamy dessert that gets a bit of an edge from rum and piles of whipped cream on top. A graham cracker crust never hurt, either.
