A list of all the recipes Joe Pascoa has tested.

A glass casserole dish filled with golden brown easy scalloped potatoes

Easy Scalloped Potatoes

Creamy, cheesy, and just like Grandma used to make. That’s what we’re talking about when it comes to these easy scalloped potatoes.

A tall cool glass of a winter mojito made with rum and a sugar syrup of rosemary, thyme, sage leaves

Winter Mojito

Mojitos outside of summer? Without hesitation. But only if they’re concocted with dark rum and sage, rosemary, and thyme to lend this classic cocktail a decidedly warming feel.

A plate with five baguette slices, a knife, and white bowl filled with fresh cod brandade, garnished with parsley.

Fresh Cod Brandade

Fresh cod is poached in an herby milk-cream mixture and gently folded into mashed potatoes. It makes a perfect spread for garlic toasts.

Two white ramekins with a pile of sugar-coated bourbon balls

Bourbon Balls

Chocolatey, boozy goodness in a charming and irresistible and seemingly innocent presentation. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

A gray plate with a pile of skillet mac and cheese piled on it

Skillet Mac and Cheese

Add this simple skillet mac and cheese, with its brilliant and time-saving trick we suspect you’ve never heard of, to your dinner arsenal and you just might achieve superhero status with the kids. And with yourself.

A small bowl of vegan mayo--soy milk, oil, vinegar, mustard, and salt--nearby is a wooden knife

Vegan Mayo

Every bit as thick, creamy, and delicious as the real stuff. Maybe even better.
