One Potato, Two Potato, Part 1: Cognac-Laced Potato Cream Soup

The humble potato is so versatile—and filling—that I'm not sure why I don't use it more often. This soup sounds fancy, but you can whip it up in no time flat—with stuff you probably already...

Garlic & Spinach Parmesan Rice

Toasted Pecan Rice Pilaf

This is a quick and easy rice dish you can whip together on a weeknight in short time. It's packed with buttery, toasted pecans and bits of fried ham. A fresh bay leaf and pinch...

Roasted Rosemary-Garlic Acorn Squash

This has got to be my favorite way to cook squash, short of doing that kind-of-horrifying-but-still-embarrassingly-yummy thing where you mash it up with butter then bake it under a snowy blanket of marshmallows. Think of...

Brown-Sugar Cranberry Sauce

Ever since I was a kid, cranberry sauce has always been one of my favorite things about the fall. Most of the time, my mom made homemade cranberry sauce. Now, she's an amazing cook. Sometimes,...
