A list of all the recipes Linda Christman has tested.

An oval platter topped with Greek salad - sliced cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, peppers, and feta cheese.

Greek Salad

As easy and traditional as classic Greek salad. But with a subtle twist that’s gonna have you coming back to this recipe again and again and again.

Three orange madeleines in a medeline tin.

Orange Madeleines

Tender, buttery, and enhanced with a subtle citrus lilt. Just as Proust would have wanted. (No madeleine tin? No worries. They’re just as lovely when made in a mini-muffin pan.)

An apple coffee cake with one slice cut from it on a wire cooling rack with parchment underneath.

Apple Coffee Cake

Elegant enough for company, simple enough for every day, and versatile enough for breakfast and midnight snack and pretty much every moment in between.

Five cranberry scones with two drizzled with white chocolate glaze on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet.

Cranberry Scones

Got leftover cranberries? Then you’ve got the fixings for these incredible scones that balance tart berries with sweet white chocolate and knee-wobblingly flaky pastry.

A lemon meringue pie topped with clouds of toasted meringue

Lemon Meringue Pie

An almost-but-not-quite-classic rendition of lemon meringue pie that’s a lot less effort than you’d expect. And more payback than you can imagine in terms of its perfectly balanced sweetly tart lemon custard.

Two pina coladas, garnished with a pineapple wheel and a whole pineapple nearby.

Pina Colada

This pina colada recipe is made with rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple, and couldn’t be easier. We also think it’s even better than the classic.
