Oven Sauced Chicken

My favorite baked chicken recipe involves thighs, a hot oven, and little else. But part of its charm is being able to change course halfway through the baking process to add a sauce and give it a flavor makeover!

Spring Seafood

I love the baby spinach that makes itself available in May. I also love pairing it with tender salmon and lightly seasoned lentils. For a quick, nutritious, and delicious meal, turn to this trio of ingredients and get ready for a treat.

Handy Breakfast

Beautiful spring weather calls for breakfasts on the go … and recipes featuring some of the hallmarks of spring. So grab a skillet and put an omelet on a croissant and head to your favorite outdoor market, community garden, or just a beautiful tree that begs for some company.

Chinese Five Spice

Have you used Chinese Five Spice Powder in your cooking? Do you like what it does? This blend of spices known for both sweet and savory flavors brings a complexity to dishes that's hard to rival. And when you include pork and spring vegetables, it's the start of a great meal!

Flat Is Where It's At

Pizza for breakfast can be well beyond a cold slice from the night before. Grab some premade flatbread and then it's time to layer on the morning magic to make a meal you'll turn to again and again, especially as warmer weather gives you everything from fresh spinach to ripe tomatoes!

Quick Tips

I love beef tips, but they've previously been a bit of a weekend decadence for me since a slow simmer was what I needed for tender tips. No more. If you've got an InstantPot or other pressure cooker, they can be on your table in a half hour!

Warm Weather Bowls

I love the creativity and artistry that comes with assembling bowl dinners, whether they are steaming noodle bowls or spicy burrito bowls. Now, with warmer weather upon us and circumstances begging for simple food that can be enjoyed outdoors, it's time for poke!

Morning Cups

Morning is often associated with cups: cups of coffee, cups of orange juice, even measuring cups used for making muffins or scones. But this time around, you can eat your cups! Granola parfait cups give you a delicious base for a morning treat of yogurt, fruit, and nuts!
