Chicken Noodle Soup

This chicken noodle soup recipe is about as comforting as they come. 

What Is Powdered Sugar (a.k.a. Confectioners' Sugar) And Can You Make It Yourself?

What it is, what it's good for, and what to do when you don't have any.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Warm Honey Glaze

Roasty toasty brussels soak up this delicious honey sauce, creating a combo you just can’t beat.

Crispy Smashed Potatoes

And on top? A condiment made up of walnuts, anchovies, garlic, and red pepper flakes that’s the ultimate umami bomb.

This Salad Spinner Is Worth the Green

Say no to gritty, soggy salads!

Molly Baz’s 4-Step Checklist for Saving a Mediocre Meal

Even Molly messes up (gasp!) in the kitchen. Here’s how she fixes it.

Seared Short Ribs With Mushrooms

When we crave beef but don’t want a capital-S steak, we opt for a smaller cut (hello, short ribs!), then pile on lots of meaty mushrooms.

Cheesy Winter Squash Gratin

You can make this recipe with nearly any winter squash, but delicata or acorn don’t need peeling and will save you prep time and maybe even a little sanity.

Brown Butter and Pistachio Sablés

Buttery, crumbly, sugar-glazed cookies that you can make with any nut, really.

Grilled Vinegar Turkey With Chiles and Rosemary

Our Thanksgiving 2020 cover star turkey is grilled and topped with a zippy chile-spiked vinegar sauce.

Grilled Leeks With Brown Butter and Spiced Hazelnuts

The glory of these leeks is the contrast between their deeply charred exteriors and jammy, sweet interiors.

Kielbasa-Cabbage Stir-Fry

The key to stress-free stir-frying is all in the prep work. Be sure to chop, slice, and grate everything before even thinking about turning on the stove. Top this dish with fried eggs to put it over the top, but it’s also great without them.

Caesar Salad Roast Chicken

When you find yourself with more garlic than you know what to do with, whip up this extra-garlicky Caesar dressing, slather it on a chicken, and roast it to perfection.

This Is the Rotisserie Chicken of My Dreams and I’ll Eat it Five-Times-a-Week If I Want To

At Kismet Rotisserie in Los Angeles, chefs Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson put a Mediterranean spin on their burnished bird.

Blistered Cheesy Peppers

It’s almost silly how easy this dish of impossibly delicious, ooey-gooey cheesy chiles is to execute. 

Anything-Goes Green Goddess Salad

This pick-your-own-protein salad is all about the green goddess dressing, an herby, punchy, creamy green sauce that originated in San Francisco in the 1920s. It's just as delicious as it is versatile: You can use any combo of tender herbs (cilantro, mint, basil, parsley, dill, tarragon, chives), cultured dairy (yogurt, sour cream, buttermilk, labneh, crème fraîche), and acid (lemon juice, lime juice, unseasoned rice vinegar, apple cider vinegar).
