Sous Vide Pork Chops

Sous vide cooking ensures that your pork chops will never be dry again. A little time is all it takes to make the kind of chops you’ve only ever dreamed about.

Two-thirds of a blueberry custard pie in a pie plate, with 2 dessert plates with a slice of pie on them, one with a fork and a bite missing.

Blueberry Custard Pie

A custardy pie, filled with summer’s favorite berry (come on, you know it’s true), and baked into your choice of crust. Sweet, silky perfection.

A large rectangle casserole pan, filled with tater tot nachos topped with sour cream, tomatoes, sour cream, and jalapeños. A wooden serving spoon lays beside the dish.

Tater Tot Nachos ~ Totchos

Nachos are always a welcome dinner–or snack–but sometimes you want something even more special. A base of crisp potato nuggets are just the thing.

A bowl of butternut queso surrounded by tortilla chips, a hand dipping one into the queso.

Vegan Butternut Queso

A vegan queso dip for anytime you feel like a little snack that’s better-for-you but still super tasty. Perfect for dipping, drizzling, and dousing.

Empty pie crust in a pie plate, with kitchen shears next to it.

Cream Cheese Pie Crust

Looking for an easier, yet still flaky and tender, pie crust? This little beauty is a little more forgiving and perfect for either sweet or savory tarts.

A white oval platter holding a bowl of dill dip with potato chips beside it.

Dill Dip with Potato Chips

This dip is creamy for sure, but it’s really all about the dill. Loads of fresh, green, herby dill. As much as we love potato chips, try it on everything.

A bowl of Texas-style chili with pork and brisket with a fork, spoon, and bowls of lime, cilantro, and pickled jalapenos on the side.

Texas-Style Chili with Pork and Brisket

This meaty chili brings everyone to the table. The complex flavors are thanks to three different types of meat, a good helping of spices, and tequila. That’s right—it’s a party!

A torn loaf of focaccia with herbs and salt and sprigs of rosemary, a knife, and a hunk of pecorino on the side.

Focaccia

Easier to shape than a boule, focaccia is the next bread you may want to master making at home. Just slice it and eat it as-is with its dimpled herb-flecked surface.
