Recipes

Apple Puff Pancake with apple cider-caramel sauce

Easier than apple pie, but equally as delicious with much more ta-da than basic breakfast fare, this baked Granny Smith Apple Puff Pancake is fall at its finest.

More crêpe-like than a flapjack, Dutch baby pancakes are the ideal vehicle for buttery, cinnamon-spiced, sautéed Granny Smith apples. With an apple-cider caramel sauce, this breakfast is fit for a king (or a queen).

Spiced Apple Butter

Spiced Apple Butter is a tasty way to put fresh fall apples to good use and this one shouldn’t be missed. Sugar and spices make it sweet and homespun, but cider vinegar, thyme, and bay leaf add depth. Then, slather this flavorful butter on biscuits for the perfect fall breakfast.

Tomato Jam

Once you try Marisa McClellan’s Tomato Jam you’ll understand why we’re highlighting this preserve. It’s savory and sweet, with a punch of heat, and has a variety of clever uses. So head to your garden, pick some tomatoes, and get jammin’.

Cantaloupe Agua Fresca with Fresh Basil

This non-alcoholic fruit drink is perfect for sipping on a summer afternoon. Savor the sweet flavor of ripe cantaloupe in this refreshing agua fresca. Not a fan of having pieces of basil in your drink? Strain the agua fresca before serving.

Coconut Rice with Lemon Grass

Since rice is eaten at nearly every Indonesian meal, don’t pass on this one. Lemon grass and coconut milk make for a fragrant, ultra-creamy side dish. Serve with Grilled Chicken Thighs with sambal marinade.

Three Peas Salad

Just-picked produce makes for ultimate summer side dishes. With fresh sugar snap peas, green peas, and pea shoots, this brilliantly flavored green salad is perfect on any dinner table.

Puff Pastry Pinwheels with Boursin Cheese

Puff pastry is a French delicacy made by rolling cold butter into multiple layers of dough. When baked, the butter melts and creates steam, causing the dough to puff. While all that buttery, crispy goodness sounds great on its own, if you spread Boursin cheese all over it before baking and roll it up into pinwheels, it's even better.

Beef Stroganoff Soup with Fresh Dill

Beef stroganoff is the ultimate comfort food. Full of tender strips of flavorful steak, mushrooms sautéed in butter for a rich sauce, and egg noodles topped with sour cream, it just doesn’t get much better than that. Unless of course the classic dish is rearranged into a quick-to-make, satisfying soup — now that’s something everyone is sure to get on board with!

For the best flavor and texture in this soup, rib-eye steak can’t be beat — its marbling keeps the meat moist even if it’s c…

Cucumber-Soju Coolers

These vibrant Cucumber Soju-Coolers are the perfect refreshing accompaniment to a spicy meal. Fresh mint, cucumber, lime, and just a touch of sweetness come together for the perfect summer drink. Word to the wise, it’s nearly impossible to have just one.

Considered Korea’s national alcohol, Soju, at its most basic, is a colorless, 20–24 percent alcohol-by-volume spirit. It’s neutral-tasting, like vodka, and is traditionally made from rice. But modern producers often use other starch…
