Katie Marino, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Katie Marino has tested.

Two halves of a tuna salad sandwich stacked on top of each other with some sliced pickles on the side on a white oval plate.

Tuna Salad Sandwich

Tuna fish sandwiches can be made with so many variations that there’s a version for everyone. Hank Shaw walks you through a few of his faves.

A bowl of cinnamon roll oatmeal with brown sugar swirl and yogurt drizzled over the top.

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

Seeming more indulgent than they actually are, these sweetly cinnamony oats will get everyone up and at ’em. Even the most morning resistant among us.

A ceramic bowl filled with mashed kabocha with a spoon resting in it.

Mashed Kabocha Squash

Wait until you give Bryant Terry’s squash a try. Creamy and packed with flavor, this vegan recipe is also healthy as heck without tasting like it.

Two golden pan-fried pork chops in a cast-iron skillet.

Pan-Fried Pork Chops

Pork chops, simple and satisfying, are what you get with this simple, lightly spiced lovelies cook in no time. Burnished on the outside, juicy on the inside, and flavorful through and through.

A ceramic bowl filled with pumpkin ginger mash with a person scooping a spoon into it.

Pumpkin Ginger Mash

Sweet autumn squash gets unexpectedly enhanced with the warmth of ginger and the complex depth of soy sauce and sesame oil.

Four pumpkin swirl cheesecake bars on a white surface.

Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Bars

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

Four glasses of different flavored almond milk.

Flavored Almond Milk

Your morning glass of almond milk just got a heck of a lot more compelling. Ostentatious even. And it takes all of a minute. Maybe even less.
