“Your family will think you are AMAZING.” “A straightforward, real deal Cajun gumbo that everyone loved.” “Easy and affordable.” “A keeper!” That’s what we’re hearing about this.

A list of all the recipes Elie Nassar has tested.
Portuguese Carne Assada
A traditional Azorean dish that boasts meltingly tender oven-braised beef, potatoes, chouriço, and onions. It’s a rustic, homey, Sunday supper sorta dish from David’s VERY Portuguese mom.
Pumpkin Meringue Pie Ice Cream
A cool, creamy version of our favorite pie. Pumpkin ice cream with chunks of crunchy crust and, get this, swirls of marshmallowy meringue.
Vietnamese-Style Caramelized Pork
This caramelized pork is sweet, salty, savory, and a little spicy. It’s every bit as good as what you’ll find in your local Vietnamese restaurant and completely doable on a weeknight.
How to Smoke Pork Ribs
Smoky, spicy, perfectly tender pork ribs. Every time. Here’s how you make them.
New York Super Fudge Chunk
Ben & Jerry, we love you and we always will. But we make our own Super Fudge Chunk now that’s even more riddled with chunks of all sorts of super fudge-y spectacularness.
Chocolate Hazelnut Gelato
We’re food folks, not number crunchers. But perhaps our most favorite equation ever? Chocolate + hazelnuts = gianduia.
Creamy Piña Colada with Crushed Pineapple
This piña colada recipe is made with rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple, and couldn’t be easier. We also think it’s even better than the classic.
Created during Prohibition, this collision of Cognac, orange liqueur, and lemon isn’t for the faint of heart—nor for the slight of tolerance.
Beet and Carrot Fritters
Shame we didn’t have these little lovelies on our plates when we were being admonished by our parents to “eat your veggies!”
Roast Duck Stuffed with Farro, Figs, and Hazelnuts
Truly impressive and a heck of a lot less fussy than it looks. Tastes pretty darn phenomenal, too. Sign us up.
Pumpkin Pie Babka
This babka is full of all the flavors of fall. Pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and a crunchy streusel topping make it unforgettable.
Dorie Greenspan’s Mocha Walnut Torte
A rich walnut torte, that happens to be gluten-free and full of chocolate and coffee flavor, is a perfect dessert for sharing. Especially when covered with rich ganache.
Rosemary-Garlic Sourdough Bread
This rosemary-garlic sourdough bread is a stunning centerpiece loaf that will fill the kitchen with a delightfully aromatic smell.
Caramelized Honey Pumpkin Pie
A Thanksgiving pie for those looking for something different from last year. Brown butter and caramelized honey give pumpkin pie a whole new twist.
Cheesy Pumpkin Potato Gratin
If you’ve been looking for a gorgeously cheesy, autumn side filled with potatoes, pumpkin, and lots of cheese, we’ve got good news for you. You’re going to love it.
Fig Jam Thumbprint Cookies
A more exotic take on the traditional thumbprint, the addition of fig jam takes these beauties to an even better place. Sweet, warm, and gorgeous.
This bibimbap recipe with its easy, smoky, slightly sweet sauce is going to upend your notion of healthy eating. Swear.
Butter Pecan Ice Cream
This isn’t your typical butter pecan ice cream. A creamy, custardy, ice cream base filled with perfectly shattered bits of pecan brittle isn’t exactly typical, is it?
Chicken with Mustard ~ Poulet à la Moutarde
With this recipe, you can assure anyone who asks “Parlez-vous poulet?” that yes, in fact, you do. Quite fluently.
