A slice of classic carrot cake--two carrot cake layers filled and frosted with cream cheese frosting; on top are crushed walnuts.

Carrot Cake

“This was beyond the best carrot cake I have ever had.” That’s what we’re hearing about this cake, which ingeniously relies on puréed, rather than grated, carrots.

A skillet filled with sloppy Joe meat mixture, flanked by a filled, untapped sandwich with a toasted top and a bag of sesame seed buns.

Sloppy Joes

Sam Sifton’s recipe for sloppy Joes is quick and, honestly, quite superb. Full of flavor and just as messy as you remember. And just as tasty.

Two BBQ pulled pork tacos in a cardboard dish with a bear and a dish of coleslaw on the side.

BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos

Behold warm tortillas piled high with sweet pulled pork, spicy chipotle coleslaw, and tangy barbecue sauce. We bet you can’t stop at one.

Three cheese and chile naan bread, drizzled with butter, in a metal dish on a wooden table, beside pieces of naan.

Naan Bread with Cheese and Chiles

Naan bread is good. Really, really good. And then GBBO’s Chetna Makan takes it up a notch with cheese and chiles, making us rethink everything we knew about flavor.

A plate with two grilled salmon and zucchini skewers with potatoes on the side

Grilled Salmon and Zucchini Skewers

Hallelujah, come on get happy. These babies take just a bit of time to put together and a mere 10 minutes to cook. Grab a plate and belly up to the grill, kids.

A chocolate streusel coffee cake with a slice cut from it to show the chocolate streusel.

Chocolate Streusel Coffee Cake

A tender coffee cake with a lovely layer of chocolate streusel running through the middle. A little surprise that takes this cake over the top.

Three pulled pork grilled cheese sandwiches stacked on top of each other and secured with a wooden skewer.

Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese

This brilliant sandwich works with any pulled pork you’ve got, leftover or freshly smoked. But trust us, you won’t be able to make these fast enough to keep up with the demand.

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.
