white lasagna with wild mushrooms

Serves 6 You can substitute light versions of all the dairy ingredients here if you like (although I prefer freshly made full-fat ricotta), but definitely look for really great mushrooms at your farmers’ market or grocery. 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus additional for the baking dish 1 medium yellow onion, minced ¼ pounds wild mushrooms, washed, woody stems removed, ...

red miso–baked salmon with scallions

Serves 6 This is one of my go-to dishes for when I have company. The miso-and-soy blend is a salty and slightly sweet foil for the meatiness of the salmon. ¼ cup red miso paste ¼ cup soy sauce (use the low-sodium version, if you like) 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 1 tablespoon sesame oil 6 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces ...

brother david’s grilled chicken & ribs

Serves 10 Brother David is my brother David, the one whose backyard I am always borrowing. He loves to grill and we all love it when he does! Hey, the sauce is my recipe, though, so don’t give him credit for that. ¼ cup olive oil 3 pounds chicken pieces, skin on (thighs, drumsticks, breasts) 3 pounds pork ribs ...

world’s best chili

Serves 10 (and freezes well, if you have leftovers) I have some sports fans in my life, and the first time I made this chili it was for a Super Bowl party. It was such a hit, folks now request it! This dish can be made in advance and kept in the fridge for a couple ...

focaccia panini with prosciutto à la caprese

Serves 4 I am obsessed with my panini maker. I believe everyone should own one. Many of the new versions have two-sided cooking surfaces that allow you to use them as a griddle when you’re not grilling pressed sandwiches. This panini is unique because it features focaccia, a dense, “quilty” Italian bread whose spongy texture soaks ...

roasted maple-glazed cornish game hens

Rinse the birds and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper and arrange in a roasting pan with deep sides. In ...

arroz con pollo

Serves 6–8 This recipe is a shortcut to a one-pot meal. I use organic rotisserie chicken from my local market, but of course you can roast your own, if you prefer. 2 tablespoons butter 1 medium Spanish onion, chopped 2 tablespoons minced garlic 2 cups long-grain white rice 3 cups chicken stock 1 cup white wine 2 tablespoons adobo seasoning ½ teaspoon saffron ¼ cup ...

coconut chicken curry

Serves 6 This curry is so wonderfully fragrant, you might have trouble waiting for your guests to arrive before sampling it yourself. Recently, I was carrying a batch of it over to a potluck party at a friend’s house and five total strangers stopped me along the way to ask what smelled so good. It’s the ...

oven-roasted halibut with cherry tomatoes & thyme

Serves 6 Halibut is a meaty yet light fish, and the brightness of the tomatoes pairs beautifully with the fresh oregano. The herb butter helps the flavor of the thyme really shine through. 6 tablespoons butter at room temperature, plus 2 tablespoons for sautéing 12 sprigs thyme, plus 1 tablespoon chopped 1 large savoy cabbage (about 2 pounds), finely ...
