This recipe changed everything I knew about pie. Before I sorted out a truly scientific ratio of ingredients, fruit pies seemed to be a hit-or-miss proposition: some days soup, some days gloop.

(Image credit: Samantha Bolton) Craving the slightly sparkling hard lemonade of summers past? We were too, and happily discovered that it can be recreated with ingredients already buried in our pantries and bar cabinets. Finally, a use for that dusty bottle of limoncello — a wine spritzer that melds candy-coated flavor with a grown-up palate. […]

The first time I cooked a Cuban-style pork shoulder, what came out of the oven had a glistening, charred, crisp crust, but as soon as I started carving, I realized that the stuff was rubber.

Whether you’re a White Zinfandel lover, or despise anything labeled “blush,” there’s a reason this sweet pink stunner was the highlight of 1980s drinking culture, and it comes down […]
Reheating a leftover steak will almost inevitably lead to dry, disappointing results. Cold steak, on the other hand, when treated right, can be absolutely delicious.

(Image credit: Leela Cyd) Even without the rhubarb, tomato dumplings are a mystery to those who didn’t grow up eating them.

This is the sort of recipe pastry chefs tend to favor, but it doesn’t require any fancy training or equipment. Just smash some butter in a bowl of flour, stir in a bit of water, roll it out, and fold it over a few times, for an easy layered dough that’s supple but strong. It […]

(Image credit: Samantha Bolton) What a pound of grapes looks like will surprise you.

(Image credit: Christine Han) After so many failed attempts, I’ve finally succeeded at meal planning.

(Image credit: Emma Christensen) Open Slideshow As a Midwestern gal, born and raised, I do love my corn on the cob. What I don’t love, however, is standing over a boiling pot of water waiting for the cobs to cook on a sweltering summer day. Boiling has also always felt to me like a lot […]
(Image credit: Leela Cyd) Lately cacio e pepe, a humble Roman pasta dish, has been getting quite a lot of praise — and for good reason. The simple pasta dish that’s tossed with nothing more than black pepper, olive oil, and Pecorino Romano cheese is a lesson in just how flavorful basic ingredients can be. […]
