This easy-peasy, seemingly fancy-schmancy, late-summer dinner is a cinch to make—and to clean up after. You’re very welcome.

A list of all the recipes Melinda Hamby has tested.
Personal Pan Lasagna
This loosely defined “lasagna” is an easy little cheat of a recipe that relies on store-bought ravioli, jarred sauce, and shredded cheese. Shhhhhh.
Sautéed Bacon, Mushrooms, and Lentils
It may seem criminal to bathe the walloping nutrition of lentils and mushrooms in anything but wholesomeness, but there’s something to be said for quality of life. Hello, bacon!
New York–Style Cheesecake
How do you define a true New York-style cheesecake? A sweetly crunchy graham cracker crust cushioning a rich, creamy, moan-inducing filling with a slightly lemony lilt. In other words, this recipe.
Baked Macaroni and Cheese
This toss-it-together-and-shove-it-in-the-oven casserole is exactly what macaroni and cheese ought to be—easy, cheesy, crumb-topped, and knee-wobblingly indulgent.
Thai-Style Grilled Pork Skewers ~ Moo Yang
We can certainly understand why street food catapulted into trendiness. Assuming, that is, it all tastes as soulful as these skewers that are hawked on seemingly every street in Thailand.
Classic Roast Chicken
Succulent. Crisp-skinned. Simple. If that’s what you seek in a roast hen, your search stops with this ooh- and aah-inducing technique.
This Southern classic is an oh so sweet and charming stack of pineapple, coconut, bananas, and pecans slathered with cream cheese frosting.
Southern Peach Cobbler
This Southern peach cobbler is going to bring back a lot of memories. We consider it Southern charm.
Skillet Roast Chicken
This sassy roast chicken gets its moist meat and ultra-crisp skin from the two-step process of searing it in a skillet then sliding the whole thing in the oven. Simplicity.
