Sufficiently creamy and indulgent to feel worthy of a special occasion. Yet made from pantry staples and completely doable on a weeknight.

A list of all the recipes P. Morena has tested.
Little Gem Salad with Bread Crumb Croutons
An incomparably more elegant (and, we dare say, delicate) version of the classic iceberg wedge salad that’s almost too pretty to eat.
Watermelon and Tomato Bruschetta
Watermelon might be a surprising twist, but a welcome one. Our testers loved the cool, sweet, and savory combination. We think you will too.
This towering traditional Easter bread bedecked with icing and sprinkles is easily recognizable. A hint of cardamom and saffron along with a dreamily delicate texture are what leave a lasting impression.
Whole Roasted Cauliflower
So novel to serve (and so delicious to eat) that you, as well as any finicky eaters at your table, might just forget any prior bland experiences you may have had with cauliflower.
Ligurian Almond Cake
A remarkably—and deceptively—simple that cake boasts an understated elegance that befits this frugal and classic Italian dessert.
Pecan Torte with Bourbon Whipped Cream
This incredibly indulgent yet not too sweet dessert is crazy rich despite being made with just pantry staples and very little work. Don’t skip the game-changing dollop of bourbon-spiked whipped cream.
Dessert for breakfast. That’s the best we can do to convey–in words as opposed to contented moans, anyways–what this maple-candied bacon recipe means to us.
With their intensified flavor, these candy-like tomatoes make an astonishing addition to all sorts of dishes.
