lemonade-mousse

SWEET TOOTH SATISFACTION
Lemonade Mousse

"Citrus meets creamy sweetness in this refreshing dessert."

soba-salad-with-asian-vegetables-amp-golden-tofu

DINNER TONIGHT
Soba Salad with Asian Vegetables & Golden Tofu

"When a craving for Asian food strikes, get out the chopsticks and dig into this! Soba (buckwheat noodles) pack fiber, folate, iron, and zinc."

swordfish-in-a-garlicky-broth-bagnara-style

DINNER TONIGHT
Swordfish in a Garlicky Broth, Bagnara Style

"For more than forty years, the town of Bagnara has staged an annual swordfish festival the second weekend in July to honor the local specialty. Thousands of people from all over Italy descend on the town to enjoy fresh swordfish with pasta, or grilled, or steamed by this unusual method common in Bagnara."

berry-chocolate-muffins

SNACK TIME
Berry Chocolate Muffins

"Although they may be a bit too sweet for breakfast, I find that these can be a wonderful snack, or a slightly healthier choice over a full-fledged, frosted cupcake. Whenever you decide to eat one though, you’ll be glad that you did!"

black-bottom-peanut-butter-freezer-pie

SWEET TOOTH SATISFACTION
Black-Bottom Peanut Butter Freezer Pie

"This richly decadent peanut butter pie is quick and easy to make, but looks and tastes like it took all day to prepare. To make this pie gluten-free, use gluten-free cookie crumbs; for soy-free, use soy-free vegan butter and ice cream."

coq-au-vin

YOUR COOKSTORY
Coq au Vin

"Our dinner guests thought this was the best Coq au Vin they'd ever tasted. I used a budget priced French import Beaujolais, and my only substitution to the recipe's ingredients were shallots for the pearl onions, and streaky bacon for slab bacon. The cooking method does produce a beautiful dish." - MyApron

grilled-vegan-caesar-salad

DINNER TONIGHT
Grilled Vegan Caesar Salad

"You don't need anchoves or Worchestershire sauce to make a Caesar worth its weight in gold. This vegan Caesar dressing works like a charm every time--and paired with grilled romaine and homemade garlic croutons, it makes for a special weeknight or weekend affair."

seared-albacore-with-ratatouille

YOUR COOKSTORY:
Seared Albacore with Ratatouille

"Oh wow, I love it! And I can relate too - I eat all I can of summer albacore, and I've got a fig tree and a garden - so I too have to figure out how to use 50,000 lbs of garden produce - sadly, or maybe not so sadly, 1/2 seems to go to deer, slugs and other assorted pests, but that still leaves me with more than enough." - drfugawe

punjabi-style-cabbage

YOUR COOKSTORY:
Punjabi-Style Cabbage

"I decided to make this recipe to use up some cabbage I had. I love Indian food and had all the ingredients on hand, and it sounded healthy. It is so much more than I was expecting after reading the ingredient list and recipe. Authentic and flavorful! I loved how it wasn't oily, but had lots of flavor. I had it with some vegetable pakoras and rice, and it was just perfect. Thanks for sharing, Anupy...I need to get your cookbook!" - catbear

the-worlds-last-deviled-egg

YOUR TOP PICKS:
The World's Last Deviled Egg

"I don't want to push 'Humpty-Dumpty" off the wall, but this recipe has got to be the last egg standing when it comes to Deviled Eggs! It's that good and has everything going for it: presentation, flavor and simplicity." -ChezBargen

glazed-cinnamon-rolls

YOUR TOP PICKS:
Glazed Cinnamon Rolls

"When I’m baking for the holidays, I double this dough recipe, shape half of it into dinner rolls and make the other half into these cinnamon-laden breakfast treats. Come holiday time, both are welcome indulgences."

chocolate-chip-cranberry-muffins

YOUR TOP PICKS:
Chocolate Chip Cranberry Muffins

"This is a great muffin, especially if you’re a cranberry fan. The delightful tartness of the cranberries wedded with the sweetness of the chocolate chips makes for a very yummy treat."

spinach-and-corn-rolled-enchiladas

YOUR COOKSTORY:
Spinach and Corn Rolled Enchiladas

"Very very yummy. I doubled the amount of cheese (because, you know, cheese nomnomnom). We found it to be a little too spinach-y, but other than that, it's great. I'm looking forward to eating the leftovers!" - Pleione90

flaky-scones

YOUR COOKSTORY:
Flaky Scones

"Amazing! Resist the urge to overmix, they will be much fluffier if not handled like cookie dough. I made half a batch with fresh blueberries that I had thrown in the freezer for 20 mintues prior to using them to ensure they didnt just mush. Instead of mixing them into the dough, when i rolled out the dough I dropped them on before folding over and rolling again. I felt like they were more evening distributed this way. Outstanding recipe." - escott4787

fresh-basil-ratatouille

YOUR COOKSTORY:
Fresh Basil Ratatouille

"Wonderful! I am a vegetarian and my husband a meat lover, so I am always looking for dishes that I can easily add a protein to. I served over fresh baked french bread and topped with fresh parmesan cheese. I also used fire roasted tomatoes, as suggested, and it definitely added dimension to the dish." - escott

gigi-tagliatelle-bolognese

YOUR COOKSTORY:
Gigi Tagliatelle Bolognese

"This is a simple, great recipe for bolognese. I made it with the milk, which is traditional, and it came out hearty and yet delicate. The fresh herbs, especially the rosemary, gave it a nice depth of flavor. I used ground pork, but would probably do the combo of ground pork and pancetta next time to help the pork stay a bit moister." - Atacat

banana-layer-cake-with-fudgy-frosting-or-tangy-vanilla-frosting

YOUR TOP PICKS:
Banana Layer Cake with Fudgy Frosting or Tangy Vanilla Frosting

"In the spirit of diversity and to satisfy readers who might want an alternative to chocolate, I developed a vanilla frosting for this cake. Mixing sour cream into a traditional butter-confectioners’ sugar frosting refines its overtly sugary nature and adds a subtle tang that balances well against the banana."

hunters-chicken-stew

YOUR COOKSTORY:
Hunter's Chicken Stew

"This is a simply fantastic recipe. Even with a few hours of marinating, it was very flavorful.

I baked it in a clay pot for about two hours. Perfect. Another winner from Jamie Oliver." - Mr-Tagine

amys-spring-rolls

YOUR TOP PICKS:
Amy's Spring Rolls

"I loved these spring rolls so much that when I was in grade school I used to pack them for lunch. When I came to the United States, I reconstructed the recipe from memory, and it has been on our restaurant menu from the day we opened."

chipotle-meatballs

YOUR COOKSTORY:
Chipotle Meatballs

"These are my husband's absolute favorite meatballs! If I ever need to get him in a good mood, all it takes is a plate of these." - annemax
