A list of all the recipes Sheri C. has tested.
Brown Sugar Cookies
These beauties aren’t unlike classic sugar cookies in terms of ease and appeal. They’re just a little richer and a lot less expected.
White Bean and Chicken Chili
Stop your scoffing. This may not be conventional chili, but it’s no sissy imposter. It’s just a little subtler, soupier, and smokier.
Milkiest Chocolate Ice Cream
This irresistible scoop of the milkiest chocolate ice cream is like having a bar of fine Swiss chocolate on a spoon.
Yup. We went there. To that homemade Cheez-It place. Go ahead. Admit it. You’re awfully glad that we did.
Beautiful burger buns. Were ever three words joined in such harmony? There are a lot more lovely things to be said about these pillowy specimens of bread awesomeness.
Thousand-Layer Chocolate Chip Cookies
Okay, these cookies may not contain literally a thousand layers, but they’re sufficiently flaky to make us stop counting. As one of our recipe testers exclaimed, “This is a very special cookie.”
Lemon Horseradish Butter
Slather, schmear, and otherwise anoint all manner of things with this nifty flavored butter. Mmmm. Butter.
Flounder with Lemon Butter Sauce
One of our most requested recipes. Easy, elegant, and pretty much foolproof. Sorta impressive for something that you toss together in less than 15 minutes, wouldn’t you agree?
Mint. Muddled. Mine. When we’ve got this gin-based mojito on our minds, those are about the only words we can muster. Well, maybe add “More.”
Thai-Style Grilled Pork Skewers ~ Moo Yang
We can certainly understand why street food catapulted into trendiness. Assuming, that is, it all tastes as soulful as these skewers that are hawked on seemingly every street in Thailand.
Turkey Cincinnati Chili
Saucier and sassier and healthier than most, this Cincinnati chili is still plopped atop a pile of spaghetti and smothered with all sorts of goodness.
Twinkie Bundt Cake
A ginormous riff on the iconic American snack cake, this Twinkie look-alike boasts a beauteous appearance, an amped-up vanilla smack, and ingredients you can actually pronounce.
Dark and Stormy Cocktail
It was a dark and stormy night…oops. We mean, this stiff yet slightly sweet cocktail is certain to thunder through your evening.
Pistachio Pound Cake
Not too sweet and not too dense, this honeyed pistachio pound cake is just right—and just large enough to share.
Easy Cream Biscuits
Scandalously simple. Ethereally airy. Magical. That’s but a sampling of what folks are saying about these two-ingredient, Southern-style cream biscuits.
Cedar Plank–Grilled Salmon
Imagine, if you can, a technique that imbues salmon with a touch of smoke and ensures your pricey catch doesn’t stick to the grate. You’re welcome.
Cream Cheese Rugelach
“Transcendent” is how the author describes these rugelach. We’d like to add “flaky,” “tender,” and “perfect” to the list of apt adjectives.
Jalapeño Mint Julep
Always craved a little something more as you’ve knocked back your mint julep? Then you need this jalapeño mint julep recipe.
Fried Eggs with Crisp Bread Crumbs
Got eggs, stale bread, and a skillet? Then you’ve got supper. Crisp and crunchy with soft and gooey. Thrifty, too.
