A list of all the recipes Lisa Ward has tested.
Chewy Molasses Cookies
The holidays incarnate. That’s what these cookies are to us. They’re magnificently and traditionally spiced and are crinkly and chewy. All in the best possible sort of way.
Beef Chili Tacos
Better than any packaged taco kit you’ll ever find in any store anywhere. Try them and see for yourself.
Sourdough Dressing with Sausage and Prunes
This little number pairs pork with prunes and sourdough for a sorta savory, sorta sweet concoction that goes spectacularly with the holiday turkey.
Herbed Bread and Celery Stuffing
A classic. Bread stuffing filled with celery, onion, thyme, basil, and parsley that’s synonymous with Thanksgiving (though honestly, it’s equally welcome any time with roast chicken).
This bibimbap recipe with its easy, smoky, slightly sweet sauce is going to upend your notion of healthy eating. Swear.
No-Knead Italian Bread
No-knead Italian bread that’s rustic, crusty, and easy as heck. The hardest part is the waiting, so plan accordingly. But believe us when we tell you that it’s absolutely worth it.
Classic Strawberry Shortcakes
Nothing heralds warm, muggy weather like strawberries. Here, the sweet berries are layered with whipped cream and piled high on cloud-like biscuits.
Peach, Burrata, and Basil Salad
Peachy keen takes on new meaning with this little stunner of a starter or, if you’re like us and have a hard time restraining yourself, your entire dinner. Summer personified.
Italian-Style Turkey Meatballs
Meatballs are meatballs, right? Not even close. These little babies take ground turkey and make it taste like a healthier, umami-packed heaven.
Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
Bakery-style banana bread that you can make at home. And yes, it’s healthy, and you’ll know it, but we don’t consider that a bad thing. Quite the contrary.
Baked Feta Pasta with Shrimp
That’s right—we made the famous TikTok tomato and feta pasta and adapted it to include shrimp because that’s how we roll. And it’s just as good as everyone says it is.
Moutabal ~ Roasted Eggplant, Yogurt, and Tahini Dip
A staple of Syrian snacking, moutabal is smoky and richly flavored. Spread it on everything that needs a pick-me-up of the delicious kind—you’ll never have a boring lunch again.
Homemade Soft Pretzels
Fresh baked pretzels are irresistible. This recipe shows you how to make plain pretzels, cheese pretzels, caraway pretzels, bacon pretzels, mini-pretzels.
Cream Cheese Pound Cake
Everything you would imagine in a pound cake. Buttery. Indulgent. Moist. Rich. And with a perfectly balanced and ever so slightly puckery lemon glaze.
Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies with Heath Bars and Pecans
Not too fudgy and not too cakey, these brownies strike just the right balance of perfectly overindulgent.
Coconut Carrot Cake
Lighter, more delicate, some may even say more sophisticated, and we dare say better than any other carrot cake you’ve ever had. No pineapple. No raisins. No complaints.
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.
Tarka Dal ~ Lentils with Tomatoes and Cilantro
Easy, healthy, and perfectly spiced, these creamy lentils are simple to whip up at a moment’s notice. Lucky you.
