Some things never go out of style. Witness this throwback to the 50s recipe for drumsticks rolled in crumbs of any sort. Potato chips. Wasabi peas. Rice crackers.

A list of all the recipes Joan Osborne has tested.
A better way to start your day. Uh, we mean, end your day. That’s what we meant. Yes. End it. Ahem.
Those of us who prefer a restrained sweetness and a more pronounced cocoa taste will adore these muffins. Nothing overtly sweet here. And we’re okay with that.
Easy Rhubarb Crisp
An obscenely easy, sweetly tart rhubarb crisp that you simply must experience at least once. (Although we doubt you’ll be able to stop at just once.)
Chimichurri-induced happiness can be yours with this foolproof, fuss-free, Argentine-approved answer to what’s for dinner.
Coconut Cream Pie
A retro classic with a velvety coconut custard buried beneath billows of sweet, luscious, airy meringue and cushioned by a tender, flaky, buttery lard crust. You’re welcome.
Black-Eyed Peas with Spinach
After trying this Southern good-luck charm of black-eyed peas, we say forget the luck. Just pass more of these peas, please.
Classic Green Bean Casserole
Green beans? Check. Creamy mushroomy sauce? Check. Can opener? Uh…no thank you. Not this time.
Momofuku’s Fried Chicken
This flour-free fried bird is contrary to everything we know about fried chicken. Or think we know. That’s exactly what makes it so darn genius.
Southern Corn Sticks
These corn bread batons bake up crisp on the outside, with a fine crumb on the inside, and ready to sop up as much butter or gravy as you wish.
White Bean and Chicken Chili
Stop your scoffing. This may not be conventional chili, but it’s no sissy imposter. It’s just a little subtler, soupier, and smokier.
Peruvian Roast Chicken
This anything-but-boring bird borrows its Peruvian accent from a technicolor dream coat of paprika, lemon, garlic, and cumin.
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.
Milkiest Chocolate Ice Cream
This irresistible scoop of the milkiest chocolate ice cream is like having a bar of fine Swiss chocolate on a spoon.
Tomato and Green Bean Salad
You don’t have to be Greek for this amalgam of tomatoes, green beans, red onion, and feta to taste like home.
Spaghetti with Raw Tomatoes
Summer at its simplest, not to mention its most splendid. Five minutes of effort yield a meal that rivals round-trip tickets to Italy.
Basil, tomato, and mozzarella–green, red, and white–are all this summer salad needs to shine. Oh, a drizzle of olive oil and a a squeeze of lemon help.
Barbecue Pork Burgers
A weeknight-friendly riff on slow-roasted pulled pork that juxtaposes tangy bbq sauce, succulent pork, and old-fashioned slaw, all in a jiffy.
Brownie Ice Cream
The soul-satisfying collision of brownies and ice cream has been around since we were kids. In case you’ve ever wanted to recreate it at home, here’s the best way we know.
Spicy Eggs in Hell
Eggs in hell? It’s an edible incarnation of Dante’s inferno. Don’t worry, it’s far more fetching than that old grump would have you believe.
