A list of all the recipes Olivia G. has tested.

Vegan chocolate cupcakes, half frosted with vegan chocolate frosting, on a wire rack beside a bowl of frosting.

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Vegan chocolate cupcakes. So scrumptious and deep dark chocolatey that no one’s even going to notice they’re vegan. Swear.

A gray plate with a slice of honey walnut cake, raspberries, blackberries, whipped cream, and a spoon, all sprinkled with icing sugar.

Honey Walnut Cake

Easy enough for everyday yet sufficiently elegant for anytime you need a little oomph, this honey-inflected walnut cake never disappoints. Ever.

Two bowls of rice and curried chickpeas with two forks and a yellow cloth on the side.

Curried Chickpeas ~ Chana Masala

Easy, inexpensive, not too spicy, comforting as heck, and made with ingredients you probably already have. It also just so happens to be vegan and gluten-free.

Two blue glass plates with scoops of Turkish coffee ice cream, and a spoon

Turkish Coffee Ice Cream

Folks are saying this is the simplest ice cream recipe they’ve ever made. They’re also calling it the most satisfying.

An oval casserole dish of acquacotta - eggs poached in a tomato and onion sauce -- with a piece of bread, plate, and utensils on the side.

Acquacotta

Sorta like shakshuka, aquacotta is an Italian soup from southern Tuscany that’s essentially leftover bread, tomatoes, onions, and chiles with eggs and a little Parmesan. Living large.

Skewers of bulgogi meatballs on a blue and white plate with pickles on the side.

Bulgogi Meatballs

Bulgogi meatballs are a tasty riff on Korean barbeque that deliver a sweet-salty-umami flavor burst. Perfect for dinner or cocktail munchies.

Sweet potato tamales nestled in a pot with a towel covering them.

Sweet Potato Tamales

Slightly sweet from a corn masa filling, Nopalito’s tamales are a can’t-say-no recipe. And that mole sauce? You’re gonna want to slather it on everything. #tamales

A spice-rubbed whole Instant Pot rotisserie-style chicken on a sheet of parchment paper on a wooden board.

Instant Pot Rotisserie-Style Chicken

Can you roast a whole chicken in an Instant Pot? Well, yes. Kinda of. Is it “technically” roasted? No. Does it have a deliciously rotisserie-like flavor? You betcha.
