  • cook’s illustrated harira (moroccan lentil & chickpea soup)
    This soup is an improved, more complex version of the Moroccan chickpea stew we've been making for years. After the mise en place is done, the execution of the recipe is rather easy. The orzo in this soup gives it a lovely body and texture. ground coriandersmoked paprikaground cuminground cinnamonred pepper flakesolive oilonioncelerygarlicgingercilantroparsleychicken brothwaterchickpeasbrown lentilscrushed tomatoesorzoSwiss chardlemon juicecilantroparsleysaltpepperlemon wedgesharissa
  • mrs. braganza's thyme and tarragon chicken
    This is one of our favorite chicken dishes, and it is crazy easy to make. We've been cooking it since college and learned it from our friend's mom. Something magical happens when the flavors of the thyme, tarragon, mayo, and dijon combine and intensify. This recipe easily scales. Just remember the proportions of 1 teaspoon of each herb (dried) and 1 tablespoon of each sauce per chicken breast. You may need to adjust cooking times depending on the thickness and quantity of your chicken breast pieces. fresh thymefresh tarragonmayonnaisedijon mustardchicken breaststeamed rice or cooked quinoa
  • roasted baby bok choy
    This is our favorite way to prepare bok choy! This technique is super easy and the leaves develop a light delicious char in the oven. Since we are usually cooking for 2-3 people and this dish is best fresh out of the oven, we have halved this recipe from the original. Use a second rimmed baking sheet if doubling this recipe. baby bok choyolive oilsaltblack pepper
  • shaking beef
    This recipe is great for special weekend meals or for entertaining a small group. The original recipe uses filet mignon but it is easier and cheaper for us to get rib eye, and honestly, we like the fattier meat better. :) For the ultimate flavor bomb, we pair this with Hands on Gourmet's garlic noodles, but if we're strapped for time, we just serve it with rice. rib eyesugarsaltblack pepperavocado oilrice vinegarmirinlight soy saucedark soy saucesugarfish saucekosher saltblack pepperlimeavocado oilred oniongreen onionsgarlicunsalted butterwatercress
