Hot Tamale Pie
While this tamale pie has very little to do with its south-of-the-border namesake, it's a really delicious recipe all the same.
Sweet, Sticky, and Spicy Chicken
Deliciously sticky chicken featuring sweet, spicy, and savory flavors.
Penne Pasta with Peas and Prosciutto
Inspired by depression-era pasta and peas, I decided to do my own take on this meager macaroni. I hope I'm wrong, but I think the next big thing in the food world is going to be these types of 'frugal fabulous' recipes.
Roasted Balsamic Chicken with Baby Tomatoes
I love this recipe. It's great paired with salad and/or brown basmati rice. So Paleo. So delicious!
Garlic-Parmesan Wing Sauce
A savory, garlicky sauce for chicken wings made with five pantry staples.
Crispy Herb Baked Chicken
The secret ingredient is instant mashed potatoes, used to make the crispy coating.
Chef John's Minestrone Soup
This is the type of dish I never make the same way twice, but I hope you give this amazing minestrone recipe a try soon, but only once.
Garlic and Parmesan Chicken Wings
The trick to keeping these oven-baked chicken wings crispy, is parboiling the wings in a flavorful liquid, which helps season the chicken and produce a surface texture in the oven that your guests will swear came straight out of a deep fryer.
Tuscan Fish Stew
I spent a few days in Florence about 30 years ago, and while I don't remember much, I do recall my surprise at how delicious the Tuscan fish stew was. What I found so interesting was how herbs like oregano, sage, and rosemary, which I'd only associated with meat, were also used with seafood. Also, FYI just in case any old-school Tuscans are coming over: I hear that for this to qualify as an official Italian fish stew you need use at least 5 different types of seafood, which is both insane and adorable. Serve with crusty bread.
