Chef John's French Fries

Rating: 5 stars 241
These easy, twice-fried French fries are soft inside and crispy outside.

Chef John's Flour Tortillas

Rating: 4.5 stars 320
Homemade tortillas are so much better that if you do decide to give these a try, be warned that you'll have a very hard time ever going back to the packaged option again.

Chef John's Sloppy Joes

Rating: 4.5 stars 657
The secret to a great 'Sloppy Joe' is a thick, rich, almost dry consistency, which allows it to be eaten two-fisted, sans fork.

Chef John's French Toast

Rating: 4.5 stars 253
So you think you know how to make French toast? Maybe you beat a couple eggs, a splash of milk, a quick dip, fry it up in some butter, and drizzle with a little syrup? Sounds pretty good, and for 95% of the world that is what they consider French toast. But if you want truly amazing French toast, give this classic restaurant method a try.

Chef John's Shepherd's Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 427
Shepherd's Pie recipes are traditionally done with lamb, but are great with any ground meat--turkey and beef being the most popular modern versions. Give this great casserole a try, and watch everyone flock to the table.

Chef John's Pulled Pork BBQ

Rating: 5 stars 144
Use your favorite dry rub and barbeque sauce to make this succulent pork. A little trick I like is to put 2 ramekins with liquid smoke flavoring in with the meat and roast it slowly. Do your patriotic American duty and serve this on the cheapest, lightest white hamburger buns you can find.

Homemade Chicken Parmigiana

Rating: 4.5 stars 192
I received this recipe several years ago from a family member who swore it was a great romantic meal. She was right. My husband asks me to make this meal every time we have a date night. The quantity of ingredients look intimidating, but don't let them fool you. It's easy and delicious! The whipping cream gives it a creamy texture that you just can't get enough of!

Brown Sugar and Pineapple Glazed Ham

Rating: 4.5 stars 56
Pineapple juice and brown sugar make a sweet, syrupy glaze for baked ham.

Baked Ham with Sweet Glaze

Rating: 4.5 stars 100
This is a common recipe brought down through my family. My grandmother made it, my mother still makes it, and we all love it to pieces! It is great left over or chopped into a fresh green salad. I love this ham glaze because it is simple, easy and delicious!
