A cranberry scone with white chocolate drizzle on a red plate, which is set on a white plate on a red background.

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.

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.

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.

A white bowl filled with salt and vinegar potato chips with a fork resting beside.

Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips

A salty, tangy, crunchy classic that’s spectacular with beer and just as good on their own. Here’s how to make them at home.

A mortar partially filled with herb salt and a pestle and two sprigs of fresh sage leaves lying beside it.

Herb Salt

Herb salt is, quite simply, herbs pummeled with salt to create a restaurant worthy condiment. Here’s how to make it along with several incredible uses, whether fancy schmancy or simple.
