Chef John's Ham and Potato Soup

Rating: 5 stars 1036
You can never have too many soup recipes. This hearty soup is definitely filling enough to serve as a main course.

Chef John's Pumpkin Pie

Rating: 5 stars 922
Rich, custard-filled pie made with sweetened condensed milk and egg yolks.

Korean Street Toast

Rating: 5 stars 36
Crisp, buttery bread filled with salty-sweet ham, cheese, and veggie patty.

Chef John's Turkey Sloppy Joes

Rating: 4.5 stars 542
A lighter yet flavorful version of Sloppy Joes made with ground turkey.

Chef John's Chicken and Biscuits

Rating: 4.5 stars 146
This recipe is the best of three chicken dinner favorites--chicken and biscuits, chicken pot pie, and chicken and dumplings--all in one!

Chef John's Quiche Lorraine

Rating: 5 stars 487
In my opinion, a proper quiche should be rich, custardy, and luxurious--not some kind of dense, baked omelet. This has only enough eggs and yolks to hold things together, but that means you need to let it cool to just warm before serving, to fully enjoy the experience.

Chef John's Corned Beef and Cabbage

Rating: 5 stars 258
It's almost St. Patrick's Day, and for many that means boiling up a nice authentic Irish dinner of corned beef and cabbage. The original Irish recipe actually used a type of lean bacon, made with a cut of pork similar to Canadian bacon. Corned beef came into the picture as a lower-cost substitution, to replace the more expensive and harder to find cut.

Chef John's Buttermilk Pie

Rating: 4.5 stars 57
Not only is this buttermilk pie easy to make and beautiful to look at, it's also bursting with the kind of bright, tangy flavor that no other custard-style pie can touch. This is sort of like a vanilla custard, meets lemon meringue pie, meets very light cheesecake. Except better.

King Ranch Chicken Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 495
A classic King Ranch chicken casserole is a supreme supper or potluck dish.

Chef John's Stuffed Peppers

Rating: 5 stars 2486
This recipe is easy yet satisfying — with a mix of rice, beef, and sausage.

The Perfect Picnic Pasta Salad

Rating: 5 stars 14
Pasta salad is almost always the most disappointing side dish at the picnic or cookout, but this recipe shows you how to transform what is normally an "afterthought" to a dish that's good enough to enjoy on its own, or as the perfect complement to grilled meat. Top this with extra fresh chopped herbs if you like.
