About Sara Foster
Zucchini Slaw Two Ways
Never give zucchini away again with these equally tempting yet uniquely different slaws. You get to choose—rich and creamy or tart and sweet.
Thai-Style Sliced-Beef Lettuce Wraps
Steak marinated in a soy-ginger sauce is grilled, and wrapped with lettuce and peppers, before being wholly devoured. They’re about as cool and fresh as you can get.
Braised Carrots with Orange and Rosemary
Everyday carrots turn shyly sophisticated when infused with flavor and coaxed to tenderness in this no-hassle side dish.
Lamb Shank Shepherd’s Pie
This shepherd’s pie recipe is a touch untraditional, relying on tender braised lamb shank rather than the typical ground lamb. Call us rebels.
Chipotle Maple Barbecue Sauce
This indescribably must-have-more-of-this sauce boasts the complex sweetness of maple syrup and the smoky spice of chipotle peppers. Slather it at will.
Pickle-Brined Fried Chicken
Pickle-brined fried chicken?! Oh yes we did! Folks are calling it fried chicken perfection. And you won’t want to skip the Sriracha honey dipping sauce.
Bibb Wedges with Blue Cheese Dressing
Remember those insipid wedges of iceberg buried beneath blobs of bottled blue cheese dressing? This salad will erase all such memories.
Crisp, burnished skin and moist, impossibly tender meat can be yours. (Yes, deep-fried turkey IS everything it’s bragged up to be.)
This Southern classic is an oh so sweet and charming stack of pineapple, coconut, bananas, and pecans slathered with cream cheese frosting.
Chipotle Maple Barbecue Beef Brisket
All the messy, smoky goodness of a backyard barbecue minus the messy, smoky backyard.
Fall-Off-the-Bone Baby Back Ribs
The secret to these knee-wobblingly tender little lovelies? Roast ’em low and slow and then toss ’em on the grill for just a short spell. Which means you don’t have to constantly tend a smoker from dawn to dusk.
Pickled Spring Vegetables with Mustard-Seed Vinaigrette
This quick refrigerator pickle melds old-fashioned crunch with new-fangled ease.
Quito’s Barbecue Butt Rub
Sara Foster’s barbecue rub, a cheeky mix of paprika, black pepper, salt, garlic, chili powder, and brown sugar, can be massaged into beef, pork, or chicken.
Warm Sourdough Bread Salad with Chicken
