Earthy collides with slightly sweet in this beautiful burnished brioche and wild mushroom stuffing. (Did we mention it’s easy?)

Beet Hummus

Extraordinary looking. Extraordinary tasting. Extraordinarily healthy. And super simple to toss together.

Tortilla Soup

Easy. Effing awesome. That’s what we think of this Mexican classic, whether for everyday or entertaining.

Skillet Charred Broccolini

A simple side that comes together quickly, only messes up a single pan, and will earn you accolades from most (if maybe not all) the folks at your table.

Three plates filled with shredded beef tacos--braised beef brisket, Cotija cheese, napa cabbage, sour cream, red onions, and cilantro on charred corn tortillas

Shredded Beef Tacos

Not your typical tacos, these beauties comprise gently spiced braised brisket that’s smattered with cabbage, pickled red onion, Cotija cheese, lime, and cilantro. Not your typical tacos. And boy are we thankful for that.

Easy Apple Cranberry Sauce

We’re not quite certain which title is more apt—apple cranberry sauce or cranberry applesauce. But then, we’re not so into titles or labels. We’re simply into taste. Whatever you call this, there’s no denying, it tastes lovely.

A pile of charred greens--kale and spinach--on a white plate

Skillet Charred Greens

Skillet charred greens are exactly what they sound like—greens cooked in a skillet until pleasingly, smokily charred until the greens are crisp at the edges.

Herb Infused Black Olives

Easy yet elegant. That’s what we want in a cocktail party nosh. These lovely olives are exactly that and are certain to earn you accolades.
