Weeknight Shorts: Mexican Comfort Food

Everyone has a go-to comfort food. South of the border, it's pozole - a thick soup loaded with lots of vegetables and tender hominy and featuring roasted meat, usually pork or chicken. It's a joy when made entirely from scratch over many hours, but a quick version using leftovers, convenience items, and the InstantPot is a weeknight joy!

Flavor Pairings

Whether it's putting together a menu of complementary dishes or building layers of flavor in one dish, spending a bit of time thinking about what kinds of flavors play well together can help you become a better cook and enjoy the time at your table more.

Not a Boring Fruit Salad

When winter offers you nothing more than snow and ice, fight back with a fruity coleslaw that is bright, beautiful, and nutritious. In a month where the dominant colors are grey and white, embrace purple, green, orange, red, and more!

Pressing Matters

Make a sandwich extra special by roasting pork and then pressing it with your favorite ingredients into a warm, crisp panini. Everything from roasted red peppers to fresh mozzarella come together to make your meal memorable.
