A list of all the recipes Kim Venglar has tested.

A white bowl filled with panna cotta with peaches, garnished with thyme and a spoon resting inside.

Panna Cotta With Peaches

This panna cotta has the most luscious of textures. How to best explain it? Hmmm. It’s sorta like swooping velvet over your tongue.

Two barbecue pork burgers with slaw and barbecue sauce stacked on top of each other.

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.

A person drizzling sauce over a steak au poivre on a white plate with sweet potato fries.

Steak au Poivre

Julia Child updated the French classic with mixed peppercorns and allspice to lend a little intrigue. A surprisingly quick yet altogether swoon-worthy weeknight dinner.

A white plate topped with torn figs and burrata cheese and chopped pistachios with a knife on the side.

Figs and Burrata Cheese

This little moment of lusciousness takes nothing to toss together. Just tear the figs, rip the cheese, and drizzle with oil. Badda bing.

A glass bottle filled with homemade lemonade syrup, a bowl of lemons, and two glasses on a wooden table.

Homemade Lemonade

Pucker up, cuz you’re going to want to sip the bejeebers out of this ridiculously easy, sweetly tart lemonade. Wowza.

A parchment-lined square pan filled with pecan-studded best brownies.

David Lebovitz’s Best Brownies

“Best brownies” is a bold assertion. Yet these merit exactly that distinction. Shatteringly crisp on top, fudgy in the center, and intensely chocolatey through and through.

Spice-Rubbed Grilled Pork Chops

If you’re looking for an upgrade this grilling season, here it is. Pork chops rubbed with an unexpected mix of spices and then grilled to juicy perfection. And no time-consuming marinade.
