Mackenzie Campbell, Recipe Tester

A list of all the recipes Mackenzie Campbell has tested.

A coupe glass filled with a revolver cocktail, garnished with orange peel.

The Revolver Cocktail

“A terrific, deeply flavored cocktail.” “A blessing after a rough day at work.” That’s what folks are saying about this cocktail.

A white plate with 3 shredded beef enchiladas covered with melted cheese and diced onions, with a knife and fork.

Shredded Beef Enchiladas

Shredded beef and gooey cheese and a pretty mild sauce. Just 20 minutes in the oven, then compliments all around. Thanks, Homesick Texan.

A sheet of parchment paper with a rectangular mushroom leek tart with a square piece cut from the corner, and garnished with thyme.

Mushroom Leek Tart

“Impressive.” “Easy.” “Yummy.” “Brilliant.” “No leftovers!” That’s what folks are saying about this lovely little tart.

A metal skillet filled with creamy pasta covered with shredded Parmesan and cracked pepper, with a large serving spoon. A bowl of Parmesan and a pepper mill sit beside it.

Cacio e Pepe

This crazy satisfying, ridiculously cheap, pantry-minded dinner consists of just pasta, cheese, oil, salt, pepper, and a nifty technique.

6 grilled chicken skewers piled on a wooden cutting board and sprinkled with slices of red onion and cilantro.

Grilled Chicken Skewers

Magnificently easy to marinate. Quick to toss on the grill. And distinctly Thai thanks to the lilt of coconut milk, fish sauce, cilantro, and curry.

A jar of refrigerator sweet pickles with a fork holding two pickles lying beside the jar.

Refrigerator Sweet Pickles

A Scandinavian-style pickle that’s distinctly sweet, a little sour, and perfumed with dill. It doesn’t even require turning on the stove during the dog days of summer.

Four salmon summer rolls on a metal sheet with a piece of scallion and a bowl of dipping sauce.

Salmon Summer Rolls

Swapping out traditional pork and shrimp with salmon makes for a simple, stunning, and super impressive upgrade to classic Vietnamese summer rolls.

A small glass jar filled with sandwich pickles, rosemary, and thyme.

Sandwich Pickles

Admit it, you’ve probably been eating the same tired, jarred sandwich pickles for as long as you’ve been eating sandwiches. No more.

Beer from a Budweiser bottle being poured into a glass of mean shandy.

Mean Shandy

What, pray tell, is a mean shandy, you ask? Think of a regular shandy with a spirited streak. There you have it.

A hand holding a grilled fish taco topped with cilantro that is wrapped in a paper napkin.

Grilled Fish Tacos

You’ve had grilled fish tacos. But have you had tipsy fish tacos suffused with tequila? That’s what we thought.
