David Leite’s Best Brined Roast Chicken
This is, without any doubt, the BEST brined chicken recipe we’ve EVER tasted. Seriously. (And did we mention how quick and easy it is?!)
Crab Cake Burger
Fresh crab necessitates only Old Bay and very little in way of other ingredients. That’s exactly what you’ll find here.
Breaded Oven Fried Chicken Thighs
These crumb-coated thighs come together with no fuss and can easily be adapted to whatever ingredients you happen to have on hand.
Chewy Molasses Cookies
The holidays incarnate. That’s what these cookies are to us. They’re magnificently and traditionally spiced and are crinkly and chewy. All in the best possible sort of way.
White Beans and Tuscan Kale
A satiating, simple meal that is Italian food at its best–full of robust flavors and easy prep. Serve as a side or on its own with a slice of homemade bread.
Honey-Ginger Apple Tarts
Apples, walnuts, and a drizzle of honey give these croustades, or tarts, their outrageously autumnal flair. The crispy, flaky pastry isn’t bad, either.
Chicken Thighs with Balsamic Barbecue Sauce
Come for the chicken. Stay for the sauce. It’s kid and pantry friendly. Gloriously tangy. And wonderfully quick and easy to toss together, even on the most hectic weeknights.
Pasta e Ceci
In an hour, you can have a hearty, healthy, and incredibly tasty pot of this traditional Roman soup—or stew, if you prefer. Blended chickpeas get thick in an instant.
Five-Ingredient Nutella Brownies
Bet you already have everything you need for these brownies in your house. Which is a very good thing. (Also sorta a very dangerous thing.)
Classic Chicken Piccata
Simple enough for a weeknight. Sophisticated enough for weekend entertaining. And it’s definitely as good as you remember, too.
Fattoush ~ Vegetable and Pita Salad
Fresh, cool, and filled with summer staple veggies, we think you’re going to love this salad. Tangy dressing and perfectly fried pita croutons bring it all together in a flash.
Julia Child’s Steak au Poivre
Julia Child updated the French classic with mixed peppercorns and allspice to lend a little intrigue. A surprisingly quick yet altogether swoon-worthy weeknight dinner.

Spatchcocking is an easy technique that lets you roast a chicken faster and more evenly. Start your bird with a lemon and garlic seasoning and dinner will be served before you know it.
Thai-Inspired Peanut Dressing
Perfect with all manner of salads, skewers, veggies, noodles, and more, this savory dressing doubles as a sauce. And a godsend on busy weekdays.
Perfect Baked Potatoes
A frugal dinnertime staple that can be dressed up or down. And yes, you do need a recipe to get it just right. What results are fluffy, tender spuds.
Asian Grilled Flank Steak
A cinch to make, this steak requires just a quick dunk in a marinade made from ingredients you already have on hand. Then it’s slapped on the grill. Dinner, anyone?
Vanilla Angel Food Cake
All the delicate loveliness of classic angel food cake but made even better with the addition of pure vanilla and a blizzard of confectioners’ sugar.
Best Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes
Got buttermilk? Then you’re halfway to a pile of tender and fluffy pancakes. Breakfast-for-dinner never sounded so good.
