A whole roast chicken with rosemary and potatoes on a wooden table with four plates and a tray of roasted plums beside it.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary and Potatoes

The charm of this roast chicken lies in its simplicity and its potatoes, which are imbued with drippings and meltingly tender yet impossibly crisp at the edges.

A bowl of sweet whipped ricotta cream, a halved lemon, two vanilla beans, a knife, and a small glass on a marble surface.

Sweet Whipped Ricotta Cream

A little more indulgent than plain old whipped cream. A little less full tilt than luscious mascarpone. And oh so lovely. Like us, you’re gonna be smitten.

Two whole roasted cauliflower heads on a rimmed baking sheet with a glass jar of dressing and a spoon resting inside it.

Whole Roasted Cauliflower

So novel to serve (and so delicious to eat) that you, as well as any finicky eaters at your table, might just forget any prior bland experiences you may have had with cauliflower.

A sour cream apple pie with one slice cut out in a ceramic teal deep pie dish. The slice is on a green plate in the background.

Sour Cream Apple Pie

Layer after layer after layer of perfectly spiced apples. An ever-so-slightly tangy creaminess. And a subtly spiced streusel.

A cheesy baked spaghetti casserole in a cast-iron skillet.

Cheesy Baked Spaghetti

As much of a one-pan wonder as they come. Willpower doesn’t stand a chance against this cheesy baked spaghetti casserole.

Maple glazed carrots with bourbon and parsnips on a black oval platter with a dish of salt beside it.

Maple Glazed Carrots with Bourbon

Sweet enough to entice the kid in you but boozy enough to appeal to the adult in you. (Apparently we like our vegetables the same way we like our cocktails.)

A blue and white bowl filled with melon and avocado salad with a bowl of pita beside it.

Melon and Avocado Salad

A combination of taste and textures that seems unconventional yet tastes so intuitive you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried it before.
