Chef John's Ricotta Meatballs

Rating: 4.5 stars 419
Ricotta-spiked meatballs are so tender, so flavorful, and so delicious.

Yummy Stuffed Peppers

Rating: 4.5 stars 82
This recipe is a combination of a recipe I found online, my sister's recipe, and my mother's recipe. They all had things I loved about them that I combined to make my favorite stuffed peppers ever.

Pecan-Ricotta Waffles

Rating: 5 stars 3
Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, with a little crunch from the pecans. Keep waffles warm in the oven as they complete cooking and come off the waffle iron. The ricotta adds tenderness, richness, and great texture to the waffles. Breakfast, brunch, or breakfast-for-dinner never looked better! Serve with butter, maple syrup, and additional pecans, if desired.

Creamy Baked Asiago Chicken Breasts

Rating: 5 stars 99
Easy, delicious, and cheesy chicken breasts--with plenty of Asiago flavor! Add a touch of black pepper, balsamic vinegar, and additional Asiago cheese just before serving for the best results.

Chef John's Lasagna

A thick meaty sauce plus a super cheesy filling equals a fantastic lasagna.

Mushroom Slow Cooker Roast Beef

Rating: 4.5 stars 506
This is tender, fall-off-the-bone roast beef with mushrooms. It's perfect as-is. Shred the leftovers for cheese steak sandwiches.

Cherry Balsamic Short Ribs

Rating: 4.5 stars 48
This is one of my favorite comfort foods. They are sweet and tender and full of flavor. They go great with roasted garlic mashed potatoes!

Chili Lime Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 16
This chili lime chicken recipe combines many of the spices I grew up with and has become a distinctive part of my cooking, including dishes such as chili Colorado, posole, and Frontera-style carne asada. I would describe this dish as more Tex-Mex or New Mexican than Mexican. Serve on a bed of rice or slice thinly for use in tacos or to top a green salad.
