recipe: skillet braised cod with asparagus and potatoes

(Image credit: Jean Schwarzwalder)
"Wow, what's the special occasion?" my husband asked when I set this dinner on the table. It was just an average Wednesday night, but judging by the looks of the shallow bowls filled with tender cod fillets, vibrant veggies, fresh herbs, and a fragrant lemon and white wine broth, I can see how he thought I'd planned a fancy dinner. And that is the beauty of this weeknight recipe — it is so beautiful and nourishing, yet so surprisingly easy to pull together. This dish doesn't just get dinner on the table — it makes you feel like a total rockstar.

Braising is one of my favorite methods for cooking fish. If you're new to cooking fish or want some extra assurance you'll be tucking into tender, juicy fillets

chickpea-stuffed sweet potatoes for meatless monday

(Image credit: Floating Kitchen)
It's that time of year when spring produce is starting to arrive, but winter won't quite loosen its death grip. If you're not exactly sure how to cook for this in-between season, allow me to suggest these stuffed sweet potatoes. They'll leave you feeling warm and comforted, without weighing you down.
This dish is great when you want something wholesome and filling for dinner. You can certainly make it all in one sitting, but it truly shines as a weeknight-friendly meal if you prep the sweet potatoes ahead of time and store them in the fridge. That way, instead of waiting an hour for the potatoes to bake, you simply warm them in the oven or microwave when you're ready to eat.
Then all you have to do is roast the asparagus and spiced chickpeas and whip up

recipe: vegetarian braised leeks and lentils

When people think of leeks, they think of the supporting role leeks take in recipes — blended in soups and stews, infused into sauces, or paired with potatoes in what might be an otherwise bland dish. But leeks can be the star of the show. This dish of braised leeks and lentils allows leeks to shine by embracing their flavor and leaving them whole. By braising them, you get the true taste of a leek, which is far more mellow than one might expect. Pairing the creamy leeks with the toothsome green lentils is an excellent contrast of textures and brings a nutty taste to the dish.
Don't Skip the Vermouth
If there is one part of this recipe I implore you not to ignore, it's the inclusion of the vermouth. Dry vermouth differs from white wine in that it is fortified, meaning its alcohol conten

recipe: one-skillet cheesy beef and macaroni

This isn't a very sophisticated recipe, but it's also the recipe my husband eats as if he will be fasting for the following week. His eyes get kind of teary whenever I make this; he'll show up for dinner early when he knows it's on the menu.
It's nothing new under the sun, but once you try this delightful stovetop dish, you will understand the deepest meaning of the word crowd-pleaser. And it all cooks in one skillet. Even the pasta, which cooks right in the sauce! I know, I know — it's the little things.
Get a huge pan, a 12- or 13-inch one (best pan in the world if you cook for a group regularly), make a vat of this, and keep it in the fridge. The leftovers are brilliant. Try it with ground turkey instead of beef if you like.
If you don't have a huge honking pan, cut the recipe in hal

recipe: spaghetti squash with asparagus, ricotta, lemon and thyme

Never has it tasted so good to be straddled between winter and spring until now. Fresh stalks of asparagus mingle with a healthy dose of lemon and thyme to hint at spring's arrival, while this vegetarian supper is anchored with a favorite winter staple.
Inspired by Emily's recipe for spaghetti squash with ricotta, sage, and pine nuts, I wanted a version that embraced the freshness of the season, while being filling enough to be a meal.
I picked up a bunch of asparagus and a spaghetti squash at the farmers market over the weekend, which is an excellent reflection of the season right now: the very end of winter transitioning into the briefest hint of spring. What fun it would be to come up with a light supper dish that uses both of these ingredients!

7 ways to eat (& drink!) turmeric

Do you have a jar of turmeric languishing in your spice cupboard? Or perhaps you're looking for ways to add it to your diet in response to all the recent studies indicating its health-promoting and disease-preventing properties. Turmeric has long been a staple in Indian curries as well as in foods like mustard (it provides that golden yellow color!), but there are lots of other ways to eat and drink this spice. Here are seven easy ideas.
1. Add it to scrambles and frittatas. Use a pinch of turmeric in scrambled eggs, a frittata, or tofu scramble. If you or your family are new to turmeric, this is a great place to start because the color is familiar and the flavor subtle.

how to steam asparagus in the microwave

Despite all the ways we love to prepare fresh spring asparagus, microwave steaming might be the very best. You've got to trust me here, because microwave steaming eliminates the need to boil water, takes just a few minutes, and makes perfectly tender asparagus spears without turning on the oven.
Let me alleviate any further doubts on this method by noting that I learned this asparagus steaming trick from Alton Brown — so now you've got to try it, right?

I don't just like asparagus — I love it! It's a bit of an obsession for me. I'll eat it broiled, roasted, steamed, baked, and even raw. To that roster of preparations is the recent addition of oven-baked asparagus fries in all their golden, crispy-brown glory.
With the help of a breadcrumb trick that you can make use of beyond this recipe, I present the crispiest, crunchiest, tastiest asparagus I've made to date — and folks, it's all done in the oven.

recipe: lemon-pepper asparagus | kitchn

This simple side dish is just as much about the tender roasted asparagus as it is about the burnished lemon slices that are tossed in the mix. The thin rounds caramelize as they roast alongside the asparagus, retaining their signature sourness as they grow sweeter in the heat of the oven. Add plenty of freshly ground black pepper to the mix and what you've got is an easy side dish that you'll want to make all spring long.
A Quick & Easy Way to Fancy Up Roasted Asparagus
When asparagus comes into season, we'll take it every which way, but roasting the vegetable is arguably the best way to enjoy it. The stalks retain most of their crispness while the insides grow mellow and creamy.

Have you ever heard of a Pizookie? This pizza-meets-cookie creation is really just a giant cookie baked in a skillet. Fuss-free but always a crowd-pleaser, this skillet cookie is basically the perfect dessert. And if you have a few whole-grain enthusiasts coming over, they'll appreciate the fact that this skillet cookie is made with 100 percent whole-wheat flour.
What I like most about this skillet cookie is that it's so approachable for any baking level. Don't have a fancy stand mixer? You can mix the dough by hand! Don't have a baking sheet? No worries — all you need is your trusty cast iron skillet.
If you've been wanting to experiment with whole-wheat flour, this is the recipe to start with. Even though you're using all whole-wheat here instead of a mi

dutch asparagus crop earlier than usual and prices half that of last year

Fresh white asparagusNot only is the asparagus crop earlier than usual, but consumers are also paying less than half than they did last year, the Volkskrant reported on Monday. This is largely due to new crop management techniques, the paper said.Prices fell to €8 per kilo in recent weeks, down from €15 per kilo in traditional asparagus seasons in the Netherlands. In the past, asparagus tips began rising out of the soil if the outside temperature reached 18 degrees for some time. Until 30 years ago, this meant waiting until mid-May to see white asparagus at the greengrocers.Will Teeuwen, owner of Teboza, one of the largest Dutch asparagus growers said the new techniques moved the beginning of the asparagus season up to March.The café and restaurant sector is prepared to pay a good price fo

this 3-ingredient braised cabbage is the dreamiest side dish

(Image credit: Tending the Table)
Sometimes dinner inspiration starts with a side rather than the main dish. Case in point? This braised purple cabbage. With only three ingredients, humble cabbage is transformed into an outrageously delicious side dish that just might steal the show come dinnertime.
The best part about this dish is that it is almost entirely hands-off. All you have to do is cut the cabbage into wedges and arrange them in a baking dish. Cut up some butter and scatter it over the cabbage, and then pour over vegetable broth.
After the cabbage bakes in the oven for about an hour, season it with salt and pepper to taste, and then garnish as the author did (optional) with breadcrumbs, parsley, golden raisins, and chili flakes. You can also just leave the cabbage as is; it's

No other produce marks the entrance of spring with quite the same fervor as asparagus. Their long, slender stems are often the first sign of spring at the farmers market, with the promise of strawberries right on their heels.

one-pan pizza chicken is the easy, fun dinner you need

The weekend's over, so that means all the fun is over too, right? Not quite. Jazz up your standard chicken dinner with some tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and mini pepperoni and you've got this one-pan pizza chicken.
To get a nice golden-brown crust on the chicken, you sear each side for about four to five minutes in the skillet and then set it aside. In the same skillet where you cooked the chicken you sauté garlic and then add crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano, parsley, and red pepper flakes. Once the sauce has been simmering, you add the chicken back in, top it with the mozzarella and pepperoni, and then put the whole skillet under the broiler to melt the cheese.
Bring the skillet to the table and serve right out of it! A nice green salad on the side would round out the meal, but it

recipe: roasted rosemary and garlic pork loin and potatoes

A juicy pork loin doesn't require a whole lot of fuss for it to be delicious, so we're keeping things simple with a classic rub of garlic, rosemary, salt, and pepper. To make things even simpler, the pork cooks alongside halved red potatoes for a one-pan meal. About an hour later you've got meat with a golden-brown crust and potatoes with crispy edges and fluffy centers. This sheet pan supper is definitely simple enough to cook on a weeknight, but it's also the recipe to keep in your back pocket when you're having friends over for dinner.

Because of its size, pork loin benefits from roasting at a slightly lower temperature than you'd cook pork tenderloin. But don't let the cook time dissuade you from what we still consider a weeknight dinner. This slow

make salsa verde braised chicken & use it all week long

I love when a recipe can be stretched in so many different ways. You make one big batch, eat some for dinner that first night, and then use up the leftovers all week long. Pollo verde, or chicken braised in a spicy tomatillo sauce, is a perfect candidate for this.
This dish has some serious flavor power going on. First you sear some bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs in a Dutch oven. After removing the chicken and setting it aside, you reserve some of the chicken fat in the pan and use it to sauté the onion and garlic. Then you mix in some slightly charred tomatillos and jalapeños (that you previously broiled in the oven), chicken stock, and lime zest and juice; add the chicken back into the pot; and cook everything together.
After shredding the meat you're left with juicy chicken in a vibr

recipe: one-pot braised cabbage with bacon, southern-style

Cabbage is pretty simple, as vegetables go. It's a beautiful, tightly bound ball of green-yellow leaves with a distinct pungent scent and taste. But when chopped up and left to melt and brown in salty, savory bacon fat, cabbage transforms into a pot of soft, mellow vegetable magic that soothes the soul.
Southern cooks know this magic well. Here's how to bring all of that cabbage magic into your own kitchen.
(Image credit: Guy Ambrosino)The Comfort of Cabbage
This recipe is rooted in the Southern tradition of cooking fresh cabbage in bacon fat for an easy side dish that delivers pure, vegetable comfort. It starts with cooking lardons, otherwise known as thick-cut bacon bits, until they're crispy. They get set aside and wedges of cabbage go into the pan.

Do you scratch your head every Monday evening, wondering what you're going to pull together for dinner? After a long day at work — where all your mental energy went into tackling your email inbox and dealing with the tasks you happily abandoned on Friday afternoon for "Future You" — you don't want to think too hard about supper. Allow me to choose something for you ... something like this skillet chicken. It's wholesome, delicious, and, most importantly, easy enough for a weeknight!

recipe: salmon hash with yukon gold potatoes and herbs

Salmon's second life can take many shapes — croquettes, patties, a salad Niçoise, you name it — but any extra that shows up in my house is now going the way of this herby potato and salmon hash. While this dish lends itself to good eating any time of the day, I'm going to have to agree with Diane on it being an excellent choice for breakfast.
Reheating cooked salmon runs the high risk of a dry, chewy finished products, but with this recipe the salmon is one of the last items to go in. The majority of the flavor is built earlier in the recipe with the crispy potatoes (which you could cook in bacon fat if it so pleases you!), and then salmon swoops in and is cooked until just warmed through. Break out the hot sauce and your best poached egg for this one.

Looking for a complete, wholesome meal to make for dinner this week? I've got just the recipe for you, and it only requires one sheet pan and 30 minutes of your time!
The key to a perfectly cooked sheet pan meal is all in the timing. You first roast some baby potatoes and green beans on the sheet pan (for about 10 minutes), and then add the salmon and cherry tomatoes. This way you avoid underdone potatoes or overcooked fish!
Now, let's talk about the star of this dish — the salmon. You spread some honey mustard on top of each fillet, then add a mixture of panko breadcrumbs, fresh parsley, and Parmesan cheese. This super-flavorful crust gets crispy in the oven, which contrasts nicely with the tender veggies.
Once everything is baked, simply bring the s

recipe: skillet chicken empanada pie

(Image credit: Lauren Volo)
As an ardent pie crust lover, it's only natural that I adore empanadas, the sweet or savory stuffed pastries from Latin America or Spain. They're usually served at parties or even as a meal, and one of my favorite fillings is chicken with olives. This quick weeknight version reimagines the handheld pastry as a skillet pie, with a bubbling layer of juicy ground chicken cooked with bell peppers, onions, and olives in a savory spiced sauce, all topped with a flaky pie crust. It's homey, satisfying, and cooks in just one pan — all things you want in a tasty weeknight dinner.
The filling starts with ground chicken, and you can use all dark meat, all white meat, or a blend of the two. Since there's a rich sauce that coats the meat, it doesn't really matter which ki

the one wine you should drink with asparagus & artichokes

(Image credit: Christine Han)
If you've ever tried to sip a glass of Cabernet alongside roasted asparagus or stewed artichokes, you probably had an unpleasant experience. Did the wine taste bitter and almost metallic? Don't worry — your wine isn't bad. This is often what happens when you drink wine with these veggies. Both are known for being quite difficult to pair with wine due to this effect, but luckily there is one bottle that matches up perfectly.
Why Wine Is Hard to Pair with Asparagus & Artichokes
Both vegetables are rich in umami, which can change how you perceive the taste of wine. It decreases the perception of body, sweetness, and fruitiness in wine, and increases the perception of bitterness. That means wines that are supposed to be fruity, with good body and balance, can

3 tips for picking a better bunch of asparagus

I tend to buy as many bunches of asparagus as I can possibly carry home with me when they first hit my local farmers market — and then come back the next day for some more. I can hardly get enough of it when it's at its peak season in the spring, so it's important that the bunches I bring back to my kitchen are the best. Here's what I look for when buying asparagus.
(Image credit: Christine Han)1. Stalks should be vibrant, straight, and firm, with moist ends.
The color of the asparagus you're buying should be bright and vibrant. The stalks shouldn't be wilted or bent in any way, but instead they should stand tall and feel firm, yet tender. If you try bending a stalk, it should feel as if it has the ability to snap cleanly if broken. The bottom of the stalks should also feel moist, rathe

how to clean a cast iron skillet

(Image credit: Cambria Bold)
Instructions for cast iron skillet cleaning often include a lot of don'ts: Don't use soap, don't use steel wool, don't put it in the dishwasher. It's almost enough to scare a cook off from cast iron completely!
However, with a few simple techniques, you'll be able to keep your skillet clean, rust-free, and well-seasoned.
And don't worry: if by chance you take off some of your skillet's smooth seasoning, you can always re-season the skillet after cleaning. It's not a big deal and not hard at all.
Clean the skillet immediately after use, while it is still hot or warm. Avoid soaking the pan or leaving it in the sink, or it may rust.
