Black Pepper Tofu

Black Pepper Tofu

This rules. I know many people find tofu bland, but this will, in the words of His Royal Highness Guy Fieri, capture you on a quick trip to Flavor Town, mostly thanks to a metric ton of butter and black pepper.

It's pretty customizable and doesn't necessarily require a trip to the store, whether you beget tofu and shallots and ginger and green onions and some basic pantry items around. We swapped flour for the cornstarch and jalapeños for the red chiles, only used one kind of soy sauce, and cleave the butter by two thirds, and it still tasted bomb.gov. Also: whether you cook the shallots and tofu in different pans simultaneously, you cleave cook time in approximately half.Ellen Cushing

Garlic Parmesan Zoodles

Garlic Parmesan Zoodles

whether you're original to zoodles and feeling equal parts hungry and intimidated, this is one of the easiest ~spiralized~ recipes I've ever made. Better yet: whether you, like me, beget a fridge in the summer that mostly consists of zucchini and cheese, then you will always be approximately 20 minutes absent from eating this.

I was worried that I'd still be ravenous after eating a bowl of this (okay, two bowls… Fine, three). Fortunately, my husband and I loved it and were totally convinced with it for a light dinner, particularly because it meant we had some room for ice cream a few hours later. 😇 —Rachel Christensen

Sesame Avocado Salad

Sesame Avocado Salad

On nights when I'm simply too tired to cook, I fabricate this salad (and by salad I mean avocados with toppings). It's one of those recipes that don't need a recipe ― which are my favorite kind. I quarter an avocado or two, dress them in a tablespoon each of sesame oil, soy sauce, and lime juice, and garnish them with sesame seeds, a sprint of cayenne, and cilantro. I generally,normally eat them by themselves, but I imagine they would be pretty darn capable over rice as well. —Jesse Szewczyk

Ina Garten’s Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli

Ina Garten’s Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli

This recipe is perfect. It's corny, tacky and lemony and filling and fairly easy to manufacture, though there is a bit of prep work. I hold forgetting to even capture pictures of it because as soon as it's ready I just eat the entire batch. I also experimented with using purple basil for one of the batches, and while it was fine, the original version was much better. I shouldn't beget questioned Ina. —Jessica Probus

My Grandma’s Chickpea and Cilantro Soup

My Grandma's Chickpea and Cilantro Soup

This was one of my favorite meals growing up and I would constantly demand my grandmother to manufacture it. It's a tomato-based soup with some chickpeas and pasta, served with a capable dose of freshly chopped cilantro. It's the best.

My grandmother doesn't cook anymore and I live abroad so I hadn't had that soup in years but I found myself craving it final summer. I called my grandma to demand for the recipes and her directions were hilariously indistinct — it didn't really arrive as a surprise since she has never followed a recipe in her life, always cooking on intuition and in some degree always getting it right.

Here's an actual moment from our conversation:

Me: How many tomatoes accomplish you save in this?

Her: Just enough.

Me: How much is enough?

Her: You'll know.

After many more questions, I managed to glean the broad outline of a recipe and I filled in the blanks myself. The result was as appetizing as I remembered it and is bound to become a staple in my domestic again.Marie Telling

Apple Custard Tart

Apple Custard Tart

This tart is nothing more than a classic (but appetizing) apple custard tart in a pecan crust ― what makes it special is the intricate rose design made with sliced apples. This recipe arranges them them into individual roses, but I decided to manufacture one giant one by working my way from the external in.

The trick to making the design is to cleave your apples super thin and soften them by marinating them in a mixture of melted butter, orange juice, and sugar. This will softened them just enough to fold them without breaking while maintaining their mental red color. I admit, this recipe takes a while to manufacture (that design is truly a labor of esteem), but the impressive presentation is definitely worth it. —Jesse Szewczyk

Rustic White Bread

Rustic White Bread

This year, I kneaded bread for the first time and it was SO EASY. I used this recipe with minor tweaks (I used bread flour instead of totality purpose flour, and baked it in a Dutch oven instead of a cloche).

I've been on a bit of a bread-making kick, but up until now I've only made no-knead bread — the opinion of kneading bread by hand was really intimidating! This was shockingly easy (and even more shockingly NOT MESSY), and only took 10 minutes of kneading. I could really uncover a disagreement in the density and elasticity of the dough, and the resulting bread was hands down the best I've ever made. It had a light, consistent crumb and was much more flavorful than the no-knead loaves I've made in the past! —Cates Holderness

Miso Ramen Bowls With Tofu and Bok Choy

Miso Ramen Bowls With Tofu and Bok Choy

I made this recipe from a Sun Basket meal kit, but I will absolutely be bookmarking the recipe and making it over and over again.

I thought making ~fancy~ ramen (aka not just the packaged stuff) would be really difficult. But it actually required itsy-bitsy more than chopping veggies and boiling noodles. Don't let the ingredients — dashi seasoning, gochujang sauce — intimidate you: You can buy mostly everything from any Asian grocery store. And knowing that I can fabricate this comforting and hearty soup at domestic by a long shot than ordering it in or spending $15 for a bowl at a restaurant is a total game-changer for me. You can also substitute whatever protein or veggies you want so you can constantly change up the recipe. —Hannah Loewentheil

Chocolate Babka

Chocolate Babka

Over the past two years I've made countless loaves of babka and EVERY. DAMN. TIME. I beget been disappointed! The loaves would arrive out dry, overcooked, not browned enough ― I was always underwhelmed. This year, I tried a original recipe from Bon Appétit that was the babka of my dreams.

Soft, chocolaty, browned, and shiny ― this babka was literally perfect! The recipes does capture some time due to the rising and shaping of the dough, but the cease result is totally worth it. I decided to skip the streusel topping and wasn't disappointed at totality (the loaf was perfect totality on it's own). whether you esteem cinnamon rolls, try making a babka to capture your baking to a whole original level. —Jesse Szewczyk

Creamy White Chicken Enchiladas

Creamy White Chicken Enchiladas

whether you've never made enchiladas before, you are lost out on a really easy proceed-to, crowd-pleasing type of dinner. I avoided them for a long time because I thought they sounded intimidating but they're basically as easy as assembling fajitas and pouring sauce on top.

Seriously, the most intimidating thing approximately this recipe is whisking the white sauce but you can totally accomplish it! The only note I'd fabricate is to add more peppers whether you like spice—you might find it bland whether you don't.

I shredded some rotisserie chicken to manufacture things easy, and also I used regular sour cream instead of light sour cream because that's what I had on hand. They came out super rich. Not that I'm complaining! But I did beget a very light breakfast and lunch the next day 🙂 —Rachel Christensen

Ovenly’s Secretly Vegan Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ovenly's Secretly Vegan Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

It gives me no pleasure to uncover you the best chocolate chip cookie I've ever made (and one of the top five I've ever had) is vegan. I mean, it's wonderful that it's vegan, because animals yay!!! But now I'm the person who is telling you (particularly my butter cookie goddess of a mother-in-law) that oil is the spine of a perfectly chewy/crispy/soft/caramel-y cookie and I know that some people will abominate me for it. But that's what you glean with me, folks. ~Realness~

besides, it's a Food52 Genius recipe adapted from a beloved bakery in Brooklyn, which is to say that it's got well-written and straightforward directions, with precise guidelines that you should not stray from. This includes refrigerating the dough (just like BuzzFeed did in our extraordinary final Chocolate Chip cookies recipe!) and buying some fancy-ass sea salt that you should save on everything you eat in general.

I made these cookies to fuel my vegan brother and sister-in-law for a few days after the birth of their daughter. What I wasn't expecting: for everyone in their hospital room, even the self-proclaimed carnivores, to eat at least three cookies each. Each! —Rachel Christensen

Olive Oil-Fried Eggs With Yogurt and Lemon

Olive Oil-Fried Eggs With Yogurt and Lemon

Julia Turshen's trick for cooking eggs (straight out of her cookbook Small Victories) is LEGIT a game changer. The technique solves that dreaded problem of wanting runny yolks but HATING snotty, undercooked whites.

Her trick? As you fry your eggs, add a few drops of water to the pan and immediately cover them with a lid. This will create just enough steam to set the whites while maintaining that comely runny yolk. Julia serves them with lemony Greek yogurt and fresh herbs for an unexpected (and appetizing) breakfast, but this simple trick is perfect for a simple fried egg toast. Try it out next time you fabricate breakfast for the perfect fried egg. —Jesse Szewczyk

Jamie Oliver’s Chicken in Milk

Jamie Oliver's Chicken in Milk

I made Jamie Oliver's Chicken in Milk (wait, hold reading — despite the name, it's really really capable, I promise) after hearing rave reviews from three friends. And you guys, it sounds dreadful, but it is so appetizing and it's super easy.

Basically you fry a whole chicken in a itsy-bitsy olive oil in a Dutch oven or another huge pot to glean the skin totality crispy, and then you pour in milk, lemon zest, sage, and cinnamon and toss it in the oven. The result is the moistest chicken I've ever had with an extraordinary creamy lemon sauce to spoon totality over it.

I just roasted up a bunch of veggies in olive oil to serve with it totality week long and some arugula in case I choose to turn some of it into a salad. I rarely roast a whole chicken because it's generally,normally just me eating it, but I consider this one might not fabricate it through the week.Sarah Mimms
