Three individual bowls of Instant Pot tuna noodle casserole with three forks and a blue kitchen towel on the side.

Instant Pot Tuna Noodle Casserole

This lightened-up version of the classic creamy pasta dish is filled with vegetables and tuna, and topped with Parmesan bread crumbs. Guaranteed to banish all memories of the gloppy casserole from your youth.

Two parfait-style serving dishes filled with raspberry fool, and topped with fresh raspberries.

Raspberry Fool

A luxurious and super simple dessert with a subtle sweetness and a lovely tanginess. Perfect for those extra soft berries.

A plate topped with white rice and three chicken tikka masala meatballs with a fork on the side.

Chicken Tikka Masala Meatballs

Perfect for lovers of Indian spices as well as those who want a gentle introduction to that cuisine. Full of flavor yet not overly spicy.

A bowl of cinnamon roll oatmeal with brown sugar swirl and yogurt drizzled over the top.

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

Seeming more indulgent than they actually are, these sweetly cinnamony oats will get everyone up and at ’em. Even the most morning resistant among us.

Two bowls of homemade cream of mushroom soup on a wooden table.

Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

A pressure cooker riff on the ubiquitous canned cream of mushroom soup beloved by home cooks everywhere. A classic for a reason, this soup is divine on its own or added to your favorite casserole.

An assortment of chocolate covered pretzels with white and dark chocolate coating and sprinkles

Chocolate Covered Pretzels

An impressive (and blissfully last-minute!) nosh with an incredibly satisfying salty sweet thing happening. And spectacularly simple to make. Decorate as much or as little as you like.

A white plate with spears of roasted broccoli with pickled golden raisins scattered overtop and two spoons in the broccoli.

Roasted Broccoli with Pickled Golden Raisins

“A flavor bomb.” “If you’re looking for boring broccoli, keep on looking.” So say our recipe testers, who also deemed it “complex” and “fantastic” and “definitely going into the monthly rotation.”
