How to Make Stuffed Artichokes

Nom, nom, nom. Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't see you! I was too busy attacking the artichokes! These artichokes weren't always so delicious. In fact, at one point, they were actually practically attacking me. Don't let this...

Three-Cheese Mashed Potato Casserole

Grab a fork and put on your fat pants. This is one of our all-time favorite holiday side dishes. It never disappoints whenever we bring it to a potluck. It's easy to make, travels well, and reheats beautifully. It's also unapologetically NOT low fat. (Lovers of old-school indulgent holiday dishes, unite!)

Fougasse (a.k.a. Provençal Bread with Olives & Herbs)

Step-by-step instructions for making Fougasse, a beautiful bread studded with chopped olives and fresh herbs.

Smashed Peas with Mint

Seriously? You guys know me: This is kind of not my style. Where's the butter? Where's the bacon? Why is there no wine? Why does this seem...healthy? Who are you and what have you done...
toasted bread with homemade butter

Homemade Sandwich Bread

Making your own bread is also really easy to do. It takes a few hours to make bread from start to finish, but most of that is for the actual rising and baking. There's very little real hands-on time. This recipe makes two one-pound (i.e. standard size) loaves of bread.

Buttermilk Pull Apart Rolls with Toasted Pecans and Bacon

Here's my take on a popular recipe for Buttermilk Cluster rolls. These rolls are crusty on the outside, soft and moist on the inside—and dotted with bits of bacon and toasted pecans.

Rustic 5-Spice Potato Chips

It's easier than you might think to make potato chips at home. These particular chips are skin-on, thicker than usual, asian-spiced crunchy bliss. And? They take about 10 minutes to make.

Cauliflower Gratin with Toasted Walnuts

Here's your proof, folks. I do eat my veggies. Granted, I prefer my veggies covered in cheese. (OK, I'll admit it: I'd probably eat a newspaper if you put enough cheese on it.)

Ginger Sweetie Pie Biscuits

These biscuits are a versatile companion for almost any cold-weather meal. Made with mashed sweet potato, they're moist and fragrant with ginger.

Crunchy Spring Rolls with Tofu & Shiitake Mushrooms

While the venerable pig is one of my favorite beasts to cook, I followed the recipe I had, and made these spring rolls with tofu. And I have to admit: They were damned good.
