Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken)

"When we talk about the greatest fried chicken recipes of all time, karaage has to be at or near the top of that list. This Japanese-style fried chicken is crispy, juicy, and intensely flavorful, which is even more impressive when you consider the fact that there is no skin or bones involved," says recipe creator Chef John. His secret to success? Soaking the chicken thighs in a full-flavored marinade of garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sake, mirin, sesame oil, black pepper, cayenne, sugar, and salt, and dredging the pieces in potato starch before frying to golden, crunchy perfection.

Kim's Buttermilk Spice Cake

We love when Allrecipes community members share their beloved family recipes. Here's what Kim told us when she posted this one: "This spice cake was inspired by a recipe from one of my mom's old cookbooks. It was my great-grandpa's favorite cake, and I used to make it for him all the time. It's a simple cake that's not too sweet, and has a rather strong spice flavor. Err on the side of underbaking the cake rather than overbaking, or it'll be dry."

Store-bought pound cake forms the base of this luscious trifle. Made even more flavorful with a citrusy simple syrup, the cubes of cake are layered up with fresh raspberries and creamy dollops of whipped topping mixed with lemon curd and vanilla pudding.

Creamy White Bean Enchilada Soup

"I love enchiladas but do not love all of the fuss that goes into cooking the filling, spooning, rolling, and then cooking again," says recipe creator Soup Loving Nicole. "I came up with this soup that has the flavor without all the fuss. No need for refried beans either because the beans are built into the soup. Feel free to add cooked chicken in the final step for a more hearty meal. Garnish with crushed tortilla chips, jalapeño slices, cheese, cilantro, or your favorite enchilada toppings."

Plant-Based Black Bean Taco Soup

There's big flavor in every spoonful of this veggie-packed soup, thanks to the fire-roasted tomatoes, onion, garlic, bell peppers, celery, carrots, corn, and jalapeño peppers, plus a spicy mix of cumin, chili powder, and smoked paprika.

Air Fryer Mustard-Crusted Brussels Sprouts

"These homemade, gluten-free noodles are made with potato starch. Similar in texture to a pad Thai noodle (slippery and sticky on the outside and firm and chewy on the inside), they're neutral in taste and are perfect for absorbing the flavor of any sauce," says recipe creator Chef John.

Tropical Pineapple Banana Bread

"Banana bread travels to the tropics with the addition of pineapple and macadamia nuts" says Bibi, who shared her new recipe with Allrecipes. She adds, "Excellent with coffee in the morning or as a snack with a glass of milk in the afternoon. These loaves freeze well, too. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and wrap again in aluminum foil or a freezer bag."

Alabama Chicken Stew

We love the backstory that Corey Williams shares with this new chicken recipe: "Chicken stew is a tradition that can be traced back to the pioneer days in the Tennessee Valley, a small pocket of rural communities on the Tennessee-Alabama border. What sets this regional staple apart? It's thickened naturally with potatoes, resulting in a rich and wholesome stew that is sure to warm you up from the inside out."

Air Fryer Peel-and-Eat Shrimp from Frozen

"Need a last-minute appetizer?" asks recipe creator France D. "These quick and easy peel-and-eat shrimp will be on the table in no time. These 'steam' in the shell, which helps keep the shrimp moist. I like to use 'extra jumbo' size shrimp, which are 16 to 20 shrimps per pound. Will serve 4 as an appetizer, or 2 as a main entrée."
