A list of all the recipes Rosie Coelho has tested.

Five pear turnovers on a piece of parchment in a rimmed baking sheet.

Pear Turnovers

“Much more sophisticated than the turnovers from my childhood.” “Very subtly sweet.” That’s what folks are saying.

A glass gobelet filled with an Adonis cocktail and an orange twist garnish, in front of a painted background.

Adonis Cocktail

The Adonis stunningly draws together vermouth, a couple styles of sherry, orange bitters, and a twist. Created in 1887 and named for a Greek god–now that’s a pedigree.

A person mashing avocado into a bowl of easy guacamole on a table with salt, avocado, cilantro, lime, and chiles.

Easy Guacamole

Easy as heck, this guacamole takes a minimalistic approach that keeps ingredients to the essentials yet doesn’t disappoint. Sorta tricky to come by that these days. And yet here we are.

A punch bowl and several glasses filled with strawberry sangria, whole strawberries, and orange wheels.

Strawberry Sangria

Anyone else ready for another weekend? If so, we’ve got an especially seasonal riff on the sultry Spanish sipper that’ll get everyone in the mood…for what, you tell us.

A serving of easy tiramisu on a white plate with a spoon resting on the side and a shot of espresso in the background.

Easy Tiramisu

Everyone’s all talking about politics and we’re just over here helping ourselves to more of this updated version of the classic that’s creamy and boozy and subtly sweet in a perfect sorta way.

A glass jar filled with homemade cashew butter with a jar of cashews in the background.

Homemade Cashew Butter

Surprisingly easily. Unbelievably creamy. Even relatively inexpensive compared to store-bought cashew butter. Here’s how to make it at home.

A plate and a bowl of asparagus risotto with a fork resting beside the bowl.

Asparagus Risotto

An easy and surprisingly light riff on traditional risotto that manages to maintain all the rich, indulgent, creamy goodness of the Italian classic.

Several lemon madeleines next to a madeleine pan and a bowl of lemon glaze nearby.

Lemon Madeleines

Let’s dispense with all the talk about Proust and time and just revel in these lemony little lovelies, shall we?

A loaf of paleo banana bread on a round metal trivet with one slice cut from it.

Paleo Banana Bread

This is gluten-free and paleo-friendly, for those keeping track of such things. But it’s also awesome enough for anyone to fall for it.
