Four wedges of raspberry streusel coffee cake on a white wooden background.

Raspberry Streusel Coffee Cake

Buttery and almond-y and all around impressive in its capacity to comfort, this raspberry streusel coffee cake is gonna knock your socks off. Definitely not just for breakfast.

Whole apple dumplings on a cutting board.

Whole Apple Dumplings

These individual, apple-filled, rough puff pastry dumplings are superb for dessert. And just as good for breakfast.

Five tahini truffles lying in a bed of cocoa powder.

Tahini Truffles

Tahini truffles are nutty, rich, sexy, little bites. A pleasure to share…though we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to keep them all to yourself.

Two shallow bowls, each with an unmolded panna cotta in caramel, with a spoon resting in the bowl.

Panna Cotta

Panna cotta translates to “cooked cream,” which really doesn’t do justice to this creamy as sin, subtly flavored, lightly sweetened, sublime Italian classic.

A white bowl of Vietnamese bun bo with bowls of lime, peanuts, chili, basil, and vermicelli noodles on the side.

Vietnamese-Style Bun Bo

Translated literally as rice noodles and beef, bun bo is a Vietnamese classic in which what you’re promised is what you get…and a heck of a lot more given its layers of nuanced complexity.

A white enamel wok filled with sake-steamed clams, broth, and scallions.

Sake Steamed Clams

These sake steamed clams from a restaurant chef are easier to prepare than you’d think. Japanese restaurant-worthy food at home.

A fork resting in a bowl of celery root salad with clementines.

Celery Root Salad with Clementines

Not your typical salad, this is made with nutritious celery root that’s cleverly blitzed until minced so finely it could stand in for couscous. The perfect balance of sweet, salty, sour, and surprise.

Two halves of waffle toasties with mushrooms on a blue plate with a candle beside it an a person in the background.

Waffle Toasties With Mushrooms

All the comfort of creamy mushroom soup but with grilled and toasty, this vegan sammie is the answer to all your meal-deciding questions. And raises others. Like how many can I eat before I need a nap?

Mushrooms, eggplant, and tomatoes in a bowl and two vegetable antipasti plates.

Vegetable Antipasti Plate

A centuries-old trick for preserving (and, we dare say, vastly improving) a glut of fresh ingredients that would otherwise go to waste.
