Emily Fleak, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Emily Fleak has tested.

A white pot filled with rustic lentil soup, and a metal ladle scooping out a portion.

Rustic Lentil Soup

A hearty and healthy weeknight dinner solution that’s made memorable with pancetta, sausage, AND bacon. And leftovers reheat magnificently.

A slice of classic carrot cake--two carrot cake layers filled and frosted with cream cheese frosting; on top are crushed walnuts

Carrot Cake

“This was beyond the best carrot cake I have ever had.” That’s the sorta thing we’re hearing about this cake, which revolutionarily and ingeniously relies on puréed, rather than grated, carrots.

A salted caramel tart on a white cake stand on a table

Salted Caramel Tart

A ridiculously creamy–and relatively simple–homemade caramel filling graces this properly flaky pastry. Salted butter–lots of it–lends this dessert just the right amount of decadence.
