A list of all the recipes Sarah Gustafson has tested.
Bakery Style Chocolate Chip Cookies
Great big chewy, chocolatey cookies so fantastic that our testers absolutely raved about them—try ’em and see for yourself.
Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble
Jammy fruit topped with a sweet topping and an unexpected acidic hit of balsamic. Perfect for breakfast, dessert, afternoon snacks, and everything in between.
Vanilla Buttermilk Cake
Trust us when we tell you this cake is about as unfussy as it gets. An hour from start to finish, no tricky ingredients and a taste reminiscent of an old-school boxed cake mix.
Fruit Crostata with Crumb Topping
Streusel and a jammy filling of fresh fruits are a quick and lush summer dessert. Make it ahead for your next barbecue or for a Sunday brunch and use up whatever fruit you have on hand.
Jazmaz ~ Syrian Shakshuka
You may know eggs and tomatoes as shakshuka, although this cousin includes the smooth heat from chiles as well as briny black olives. This approach from Anas Atassi is in our rotation.
Sweet Tea Brined Fried Chicken
Crisp fried chicken and cool sweet tea. A combination of the South’s two fave things in which a 24-hour marinade subtly suffuses the chicken with the summeriness of tea and lemon.
Chewy Chocolate Brownies
Craving chewy chocolate brownies? America’s Test Kitchen has a splendid version that’s got some seriously amped-up flavor.
A dusting of sugar makes everything better. And while these old-fashioned doughnuts are perfect already—trust us—a sprinkle of sugar makes them magical.
Enjoy a posh nosh with blueberry scones slathered in butter and sweet glaze. Perfect with a cuppa, any time of day.
