Three stacks of chewy molasses cookies on a white marble cake stand.

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.

Make-ahead cinnamon coffee cake in a large rectangular pan, with two squares cut out, beside two cups of coffee and a bowl of drizzle with a spoon.

Make-Ahead Cinnamon Coffee Cake

No need to get up hours ahead to produce a cinnamon-y sweet coffee cake, still warm from the oven. Mix it all ahead and pop it in the oven when you wake up. It’s that easy, ya’ll!

Brown butter snickerdoodle cake cut into six pieces on a piece of parchment paper, with a serving knife nearby.

Brown Butter Snickerdoodle Cake

A terrifically tasty cake, one that’s reminiscent of cinnamon rolls and snickerdoodle cookies. What are you waiting for? Your new favorite awaits!

Creole shrimp and grits in a white bowl, with a spoon above the bowl with a shrimp in it.

Creole Shrimp and Grits

Tanya Holland gives us Southern comfort food with Big Easy flair. That’s what we think of these perfectly spiced shrimp swimming in a slightly spicy sauce with ample cheesy grits to soak it all up.

Several of Dorie Greenspan's rugelach tumbling our of a jar

Dorie Greenspan’s Rugelach

These butter and cream cheese pastries are filled with cinnamon-sugared nuts, a slick of jam, currants, and a handful of chopped chocolate.

Paleo pork Normandy garnished with thyme, in a cast-iron pan with two serving forks, surrounded by burlap, apples, and thyme.

Paleo Pork Normandy

An exceptional combination of autumnal flavors in a paleo dish that will make everyone happy. Apples and pork are a match made in heaven.

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.
