  • Chicken Breasts with Lemon and Feta

    by

    Golden chicken breasts topped with a lemon butter pan sauce and sprinkled with feta and fresh oregano are truly a weeknight win: not only is the creamy lemon sauce universally beloved, but dinner can be on the table in about 20 minutes. The sauce also pairs beautifully with fish.

  • Hard Cider-Braised Pork Chops

    by

    Braising the pork chops in hard cider tenderizes them while adding loads of flavor. Best of all, once you get them started, your pan and the heat do most of the work for you! You’ll have time while the chops cook to make a salad and have a glass of wine—we think you should toast your new favorite dish for a weeknight win!

  • Filet Mignon with Marsala Mushroom Sauce

    by

    This elegant meal is disarmingly simple to prepare. Serve it to guests or make it on a busy weeknight: either way, it is wonderful accompanied with tender-crisp asparagus or broccoli, rice, and a lusty cabernet or a full-bodied zinfandel.

  • Pumpkin Pistachio Loaves with Tahini Frosting

    by

    These cardamom-scented loaves are studded with pistachios and topped with an ethereal sweet frosting with the nutty, slightly bitter flavor of tahini.  They make wonderful host or holiday gifts. The frosting may be made a week or more in advance, and the loaves keep well for up to three days. To make them ahead, keep the frosting in a covered container in the refrigerator and frost up to 1 day before serving.

  • Fluffy Coconut Chocolate Cupcakes

  • Cardamom Pear Tarte Tatin

    by

    Just a hint of cardamom gives this beautiful pear tart a little depth and mystery. You will need a large platter that is slightly larger than the top of the pan on which you’ll invert the tart.

  • Loaded Mini Hasselback Potatoes

    by

    Hasselback potatoes not only look great—those slits in the surface allow more of the skin to crisp, while leaving the inside of the spud soft and creamy. We took our two favorite ways of making and eating potatoes and combined them into one incredible dish: we topped these perfectly roasted Hasselbacks with sour cream, bacon, cheese and scallions.

  • Mussels in Coconut Chile Broth

    by

    Like so many cooks, we learned key fundamental cooking techniques—like how to steam mussels — from Jacques Pepin’s books and television shows. While we may vary the flavorful broth ingredients, we rely on his simple no-fail method to result in tender, flavorful mussels every time.

  • Sweet Chili Chicken Wings

    by

    Sweet, spicy and savory—these wings have it all. The Asian-inspired flavors play off one another in the perfectly piquant sauce that glazes crunchy-crisp wings.
