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.

King Ranch chicken in a large green casserole dish with a serving spoon and a portion missing. A plate, a dish towel and a bowl of spices next to it.

King Ranch Chicken

Whoever created this classic American casserole knew a thing or two. Layers of chicken, roasted peppers, and tortillas smothered in cheese. Gobsmackingly delicious.

Instant Pot Thanksgiving turkey on a platter garnished with figs, oranges, grapes, and sage, beside a carving set.

Instant Pot Thanksgiving Turkey

For a more intimate holiday dinner, a smaller turkey cooked in under two hours might be just the thing. Juicy with crispy skin, it’s superb.

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.
