Roasted garlic and sun-dried tomato focaccia requires a little planning ahead (the dough is best when rested for 8-24 hours), but you will not be able to stop eating this crispy, flavorful bread! I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and taught myself how to make focaccia. With the help of a stand mixer, homemade focaccia bread is far easier than you'd think. A there's no kneading by hand (hallelujah!). Here, I have...
Who's ready to up your dinner party game? Raise your hand if you're constantly on the search for recipes that are easy to execute, yet show stoppers? This girl is. Like always and forever. Hosting friends and family is one of my greatest pleasures, and feeding them well tops the list of ways to make each visit memorable.

Did I ever tell you about the first date my husband ever took me on? He brought me to a restaurant by the beach where I promptly ordered a chicken caesar salad and proceeded to eat only half of it. He still makes fun of me to this day for ordering something so lame. Grouper! Shrimp! Salmon! Anything would have been more appropriate than a caesar salad. Alas, I am who I am and that's...
Is there a recipe in your life that you know so well, inside and out, backwards and forward, that you find yourself making it on repeat? It's both a reliable dinner party staple, and a comforting date night in when you crave the familiar. That's what Melissa Clark's anchovy chicken has become for my family. And before you go running for the hills, let me assure you that if you think you don't like anchovies, you're...
Drunken braised short ribs with rye. Let that sink in for a minute. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful? This recipe is the perfect marriage between all things fall and winter that I simply cannot live without. And I'm fairly certain you need to try it to believe it. First, ain't no time like sweater weather to cozy up with a big plate of short ribs. Or a bowl, if you're into eating it with...
This slow roasted pork sugo is what Sunday dinner dreams are made of! It's surprisingly light, but so flavorful. Serve over pasta, polenta, and more! I could tell you how easy this recipe is. That it practically cooks itself, and that it's even better the next day. But instead, you should take this to heart as the only viable reason you need this in your life: all three of my children ate this. Testing. Testing. Do you copy? That...
My gift to you on this cold winter day is a dish so well balanced, so full of depth, that you will never again find yourself asking, "what should I make when we have company?" This recipe is tried and true. Everything from the simple, homey ingredients (it doesn't get more approachable than chicken and mushrooms) to the way you serve it -- straight out of a large pot or dutch oven, family-style on a big,...
I often find the most challenging part of venturing outside my comfort zone to be the moment I actually decide to take action. Some people get an idea in their head and run with it, while for others we require a little pep talk to get us moving. And I know our individual strengths differ, but we all possess the qualities to -- for lack of a better phrase -- get shit done. But that first...
