Bring this moist, tender cake to the table right in the skillet—it looks as homey and beautiful as it tastes. Don’t worry if fresh blueberries aren’t available—this cake works well with thawed frozen berries, too.

This dish is perfect use of the end-of-summer vegetables that make our food look and taste so clean and healthful!
Make an entire meal—a beautifully browned roast chicken and vegetables—in one pot.
When cooking double cut chops, searing them on the stove and finishing them in the oven gives you a lovely, savory brown crust and moist, tender meat. (Thick chops cannot be cooked entirely on the stove, or they will burn on the outside by the time the inside is cooked).
This sophisticated and healthful dish can be made in a single divided pan which allows you to both grill and cook in a skillet at the same time (with only one pan to clean at the end of dinner!)
Take your pot roast to the next level in flavor—with out sacrificing the ease. All that meaty goodness braises in Rioja wine and vegetables, while infusing the fingerling potatoes steaming above the meat with savory flavor. Finally, gild this lily by tossing the potatoes with a simple smoked paprika butter and you have a meal you cook and eat Sunday—and can enjoy throughout the week.
This umami-packed upgrade of the classic pastrami sandwich delivers layer upon layer of savory flavor and a beguiling combination of sweet, salty, pungent, meaty and creamy.
Pair these classic and versatile Italian meatballs with your favorite pasta sauce, soup, or veggie.
One of the keys to the deep, savory flavor of the of the braise is what’s known as “thin” or “superior” or “premium” soy sauce. It is also occasionally referred to as light soy sauce—but don’t confuse that with low sodium! Thin soy sauce is actually saltier and lighter in color than regular soy sauce. Buy the buns at your local Chinese market: look in the freezer section for folded, not round, buns.
This fast and simple recipe makes a dish that is an unexpected flavor and texture knockout.
This meaty side dish adds depth of flavor to any meal—and is a cinch to prepare! It may be made ahead without the arugula and re-heated. When it is re-warmed, toss with the arugula to allow it to wilt slightly.
The savory flavor of this crispy, golden crust is so good, you won’t even notice it is baked and not fried.
