A list of all the recipes Angie Hsing has tested.

A few pieces of grilled kale stacked on a white plate.

Grilled Kale

Summer’s answer to the kale chip. Chewy, nutty, smoky, healthy, and unfathomly impossible to resist.

White bowl of fresh peas with mint.

Fresh Peas with Mint

Is there anything that screams spring more than lightly buttered peas with a wee bit of mint on top? We think not.

An open face egg salad sandwich on toasted whole wheat.

Open-Face Egg Salad Sandwich

We know. You already have an egg salad sandwich recipe. But trust us, it’s nothing like this one, which is whoppingly old school in taste, blissfully healthful in every other way.

Several sweet potato and apple latkes on a paper towel with a bowl of applesauce in the background.

Sweet Potato and Apple Latkes

These lovely latkes are crisp without, creamy within, and sweet throughout. Entirely appropriate for Hanukkah as well as a random Tuesday night…

An earthenware bowl with an open lasagna of mushrooms, pine nuts, and thyme in it and a fork resting in the bowl and a glass of white wine in the background.

Open Mushroom Lasagna

Elegance was never achieved with such ease. Simply stack cooked lasagna noodles with sautéed ‘shrooms and smother with a luxurious cream sauce. Everyday extravagance.

A brown bowl filled with ginger and carrot stir-fry on a wooden mat.

Ginger and Carrot Stir-Fry

There’s nothing wallflowerish about this stir-fry, not with its gingery zing of tongue-tingling, sinus-clearing, tummy-settling ginger. Nothing at all.

A bowl of congee garnished with scallions and freshly ground black pepper with some fritters on the side.

Congee ~ Jok Plaw

A simple, silken rice porridge that’s certain to soothe and salve the soul—especially those souls afflicted with a sore throat or a queasy tummy.

A cast-iron baking dish filled with fennel baked in cream on a wooden board.

Fennel Baked in Cream

Fennel turns meltingly tender and oh so sweet when slowly, slowly, slowly braised in cream, cheese, and butter. One more reason to be enamored with the holidays.

Southern Shrimp and Grits

Our most requested recipe, this ridiculously rich dish takes its heat from andouille, its creamy comfort from grits smothered in cheese.

A silver and glass decorative dish filled with Raw Cranberry Sauce. A lid for the dish and a silver spoon rest beside the dish.

Raw Cranberry Sauce

This little make-ahead number is easy as can be, requires no coveted stovetop space before the big meal, and tastes, well, wow.

Pomelo salad piled on a rectangular ceramic plate, with chopsticks and a bowl of dressing.

Pomelo Salad

The sweetly sour exuberance of this salad gives us a shivery chill that we crave nonstop—even in the dead of winter.

A piece of grilled guinea hen with sweet corn fregula beside it, all topped with chopped scallions.

Guinea Hen with Sweet Corn Fregula

Dark-meat chicken lovers, have we got a recipe for you. Actually, we’ve got a bird for you. It’s called guinea, and once you try it, there’s no going back.

Four slices of bruschetta topped with tomato on a wooden cutting board.

Bruschetta with Tomato

Bruschetta rubbed with garlic and loaded with tomato are de rigeur summer fare. Pile heirloom tomatoes on the toast for a twist on the classic.
