Often the first sauce we think of when we think of pasta–Bolognese is a rich, meaty, tomatoey sauce that is as comforting as it is satiating.

Who says Brussels sprouts aren’t comfort food? When roasted with potatoes and pancetta, nearly anything becomes a comfort, we say.

A slab of barbecued beef back ribs cut into individual ribs.

Barbecued Beef Back Ribs

These barbecued beef back ribs are robustly meaty, modestly spicy, knee-wobblingly tender, and ridiculously easy. And a rub that’s so good you might not want any sauce.

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 rectangular blueberry mascarpone tart with one slice cut from the end and a bowl of blueberries on the side.
