A list of all the recipes Tracie C. has tested.

Two slabs of St. Louis style ribs with some cut into individual ribs and a knife lying in the middle.

St. Louis Style Ribs

St. Louis style ribs are dry rubbed with loads of spices, slathered with sweet and tangy barbecue sauce, and cooked until devastatingly tender.

Crawfish piled on a platter and on newspaper beneath it with a bowl of butter beside for a tandoori masala crawfish boil.

Indian Spiced Crawfish Boil

An Indian-inspired tandoori masala crawfish (or shrimp) that’s still the butter-drenched feast you expect but with a warming spice blend. Napkins, please!

An oval ceramic platter topped with Sichuan pepper prawns and bamboo sticks crossed over the top of them.

Sichuan Peppercorn Prawns

“A flavor bomb.” That’s what we’re heaing about these dry-fried Sichuan peppercorn prawns that are packed with flavor, crazy quick to get on the table, and impossible to forget.

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.

Greek-style sheet pan chicken, olives, zucchini, and lemon slices on a sheet pan with a bowl of tzatziki nearby.

Greek-Style Sheet Pan Chicken

An entire meal on a sheet pan. That pretty sums up this weeknight meal that’s short on fuss and long on Greek-inspired flavor and is actually healthy yet doesn’t taste like it.
