This eminently easy-to-assemble jumble of autumn veggies and pasta just sorta screams elegance, don’t you agree?

A list of all the recipes Jill R. has tested.
Croque Madame Muffins
A nifty little ooh- and aah-inducing riff on the classic croque madame that’s perfect to assemble ahead of time for big batch brunches.
Maple Oat Waffles
Nutty, hearty, and ever so slightly sweet waffles that do as much for your happiness as they do for your health.
Sometimes a little unexpected tweak to tradition isn’t a bad thing. Nope. Not a bad thing at all…
Beef Short Ribs with Chile Rub
We swoon to short ribs prepared almost any way. But especially when braised with coffee and chiles. That is to say, this way.
Pot Stickers ~ Guotie
What’s that you ask? When’s an appropriate time to serve pot stickers? We honestly can’t think of a time that’s not appropriate.
Beer-Braised Chicken Thighs
Chicken thighs are coaxed to incredible taste and tenderness in this stew that sneaks in root vegetables bathed in beer. Simple to make. Complex in taste. Unforgettable all around.
Close your eyes and we swear you’d never guess this sweet, banana-y smoothie is suffused with good-for-you greens.
Pistachio Pound Cake
Not too sweet and not too dense, this honeyed pistachio pound cake is just right—and just large enough to share.
A toasted bun cradling sweet-as-can-be lobster swaddled in mayo. Just like what you’ll find along the winding highways and byways of coastal Maine.
Slow Cooker Ribs
All the scintillating, fall-off-the-bone magnificence of smoked ribs. None of the standing outside in the snow or sleet to tend your grill or smoker.
Easy French Fries
For those of us who dread cleaning up the kitchen, this innovative lazy man’s approach for homemade french fries is a godsend. It’s also darn good.
Mac and Cheese Canapés
Fancy schmancy mac and cheese canapés? Why not? Plop these lovelies on a silver platter alongside flutes of Champagne or tuck them into a lunch box.
Simple Roast Turkey
The operative word in this turkey recipe is simple. Although that word doesn’t convey how crisp-skinned, monstrously moist, sigh-inducingly tender, and really quite quick this turkey also is.
More tart than sweet is what you’ll find this perfectly puckery little limeade to be. And that’s exactly the way it was always intended to be.
Fried Egg Sandwich
Bread. Cheese. Egg. Hot sauce. Five bucks says you’ve got the makings for this easy and oozy sandwich waiting in your kitchen.
“Delicious.” “Simple.” “Beautiful.” “Easy.” That’s what our testers are saying about this Swedish meatballs recipe.
Cold, creamy, and eminently slurpable, just like the vanilla milkshakes mom used to make. In other words, perfect in all ways.
Salmon with Cherry Tomatoes
An impressive impromptu dinner that’s done in less than 30 minutes and a cinch to clean up. You’re welcome.
This won’t bring you the satisfaction of a proper preserving project that’ll last the year. But it will bring you instant gratification.
