A Kentucky butter cake on a white plate with a slice cut from it on a plate in the background

Kentucky Butter Cake

This sweet, buttery Southern pound cake is infused with rum extract and topped with a buttery vanilla sauce. Thankfully, it makes a big cake because it’s nearly impossible to stop after just one slice.

A citrus fennel salad assembled on a white and blue serving platter, topped with fresh herbs.

Citrus Fennel Salad

This refreshing jumble of citrus, fennel, arugula, onion, and fresh herbs tossed in a citrus vinaigrette is like springtime on a plate.

No-Bake Snowballs

Not all holiday sweets have to be loaded with sugar and fat. As delish as that is, you might crave something with a little healthy oomph.

Christmas sugar cookies being rolled out and placed on a sheet pan, with cookie cutters, a rolling pin, sprinkles, and flour nearby.

Christmas Sugar Cookies

Christmas eating is mostly about the cookies, we think. Pull out your favorite cookie cutters and sparkliest sprinkles because it’s that time of year!

French Onion-Skillet Chicken

This isn’t just an upgrade to French onion soup. This isn’t just roasted chicken. It’s an incredible combination of all the best parts of both, darling.

A sliced loaf of hummingbird loaf cake, beside a glass dish of butter and a butter knife.

Hummingbird Loaf Cake

Hummingbird cake is as sweet as it sounds. This snacky, loaf pan version is made with whole wheat flour but still adores a smear of cream cheese icing.
