A list of all the recipes Gavin M. has tested.

A white bowl filled with Creole shrimp and grits, with a spoon above the bowl with a shrimp in it.

Creole Shrimp and Grits

Tanya Holland gives us Southern comfort food with Big Easy flair. That’s what we think of these perfectly spiced shrimp swimming in a slightly spicy sauce with ample cheesy grits to soak it all up.

Six apple crumb bars on a white sheet.

Apple Crumb Bars

“Better than pie.” We’ve been hearing that from more than one person about these apple crumb bars—and we’re pretty big pie people around here. So that’s saying a heck of a lot.

Pieces of yogurt and spice marinated salmon on a piece of parchment on a baking sheet with cilantro, onion, and lime wedge garnishes on the side.

Yogurt and Spice Marinated Salmon

“11/10!!!” “Ridiculously fast! Ridiculously good!!” “Where has this recipe been my whole life!?” “The flavors, the simplicity.” That’s what we’re hearing about this quickie of a salmon supper.

A frosted coconut sheet cake cut into 12 squares on a piece of parchment with a person grabbing a piece.

Coconut Sheet Cake

Luscious. Magical. Perfect. Dreamy. Airy. Coconutty. Lovely. That’s what we’re hearing from folks who’ve tried this easy peasy coconut sheet cake.

A white oval platter topped with fresh mozzarella with roasted stone fruit and toasted bread pieces.

Mozzarella with Roasted Stone Fruit

Sensual. Sumptuousity. Sexy. Just a few of the lovely words we’re hearing in conjunction with this stunner of a summer supper. Can’t quite be described. Just experienced.

A round glass baking dish filled with peach nectarine cobbler and a spoon on the side.

Peach Nectarine Cobbler

Sorta rustic, sorta refined, sorta irresistible. That’s what we’re hearing about this nuanced cobbler from Tanya Holland with its cakey biscuits and subtly cinnamon-inflected fruit filling.
