A pile of turkey taco salad piled up on a stainless steel sheet, with radishes, lettuce, cabbage, cilantro, and tortilla chips.

An oval platter topped with grilled peach, basil, and walnut salad

Grilled Peach, Basil, and Walnut Salad

If you’re looking for an easy-peasy but still impressive starter, look no further. This lush salad with caramelized, grilled peaches and tender lettuce couldn’t be more simple. Or tastier.

A white serving bowl and smaller white bowl partially filled with rigatoni with vegan vodka sauce and a glass of water on the side.

Simple. Straightforward. Spectacular. Elegant, even. Just some of the things we’re hearing about this vegan riff on the perennially popular vodka pasta.

A person scooping a spoonful of green chile macaroni and cheese from a bowl.

Green Chile Macaroni and Cheese

This grown-up mac-and-cheese gets some gusto with its mild heat from chiles and its smattering of—are you sitting?!—crushed tortilla chips in place of bread crumbs.

A vanilla angel food cake in Bundt form, with a slice on its side, all sprinkled with powdered sugar

All the delicate loveliness of classic angel food cake but made even better with the addition of pure vanilla and a blizzard of confectioners’ sugar.

A baked mini quiche for one on a white plate.

Mini Quiche for One

A big bowl of Brussels sprouts Caesar salad with sliced Brussels sprouts, pickled red onion, croutons, Pecorino cheese, and Caesar dressing

Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad

The traditional Parmesan and anchovy dressing of a classic Caesar. But this little number swaps in charred sprouts for romaine, caraway bread crumbs in place of croutons, and adds pickled onions. Wowza.

A blue plated topped with roasted carrots and cabbage with gochujang.

Roasted Carrots and Cabbage with Gochujang

Swear you’ll forget you’re eating healthy with these crisp-edged carrots and cabbage that are burnished to tempting heights after being slathered with an iconic Korean spice paste.

A swirled gingerbread Bundt cake with a lemon glaze on top, all on wire rack over a sheet pan.

Mushrooms, eggplant, and tomatoes in a bowl and two vegetable antipasti plates.

Vegetable Antipasti Plate

A centuries-old trick for preserving (and, we dare say, vastly improving) a glut of fresh ingredients that would otherwise go to waste.

Four pumpkin swirl cheesecake bars on a white surface.

Pumpkin pie. Cheesecake. And no, that’s not a choice you have to make. You get both. You’re welcome. (New Thanksgiving tradition, anyone?)

A plate of roasted Brussels sprouts with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar splashing down on it

Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

“They will make converts of Brussels sprouts haters and Brussels sprouts lovers will scarf them down like candy!” That’s what we’re hearing about these lovely little crucifers. We couldn’t agree more.

A whole spatchcocked grilled roasted chicken on a round wooden board with dishes of salt and peppercorns on the side.

Grilled Roasted Chicken

Crisp-skinned and sinfully succulent, a grilled whole chicken is the surprise way to go for summer suppers. It’ll be the talk of the table.

A white and blue bowl filled with spring vegetable stew with a spoon resting in the bowl.

Spring Vegetable Stew

We think of this recipe as jazz hands heralding the arrival of spring asparagus, peas, artichokes, and green all jumbled together. Lovely atop all that pasta you have on hand.

A white plate topped with a piece of brown butter flattened chicken, tomato sauce, arugula and red onion salad, and pine nuts.

Brown Butter Flattened Chicken

Looks and tastes like a restaurant-quality meal that requires a staff of sous chefs and dish washers. Yet in reality it comes together in a single skillet in just 30 minutes.
