Spicy crab pasta with lemon and capers. It's a love letter to seafood and carbs, and also to anyone you deem worthy enough to serve it to. This is the perfect example that simple and unfussy can be both elegant and refined. When I tell you how long it took to make this you won't believe me. Literally comes together in minutes -- don't even try to make the sauce while the pasta is cooking,...
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.

Bourbon-whipped butternut squash mash with crispy sage and parmesan. Let that sink in for a good minute or two.

Existential life question: to marshmallow or not? Personally, I have never been a fan. But then again, until this week I had never made my own. These are game changers. I mean, salted caramel? It's like, a no brainer. Let me be the first to yell at you to READ THROUGH THE INSTRUCTIONS in their entirety first. Marshmallows are not difficult to make, but they require precision cooking time, specific quantities, and quick handling. This...
