Ariel has experience as a freelance writer, recipe developer, and social media editor. She spent 8 years working at Kitchn where she launched and led their news and features program.

Sheet Pan Mini Meatloaves

Looking for an easy weeknight recipe for 2022? This sheet pan dinner is a clear winner. “I love this recipe because it’s an all-in-one dinner with minor cleanup, and that’s what I need for busy weeknights,” explains Senior Editor Summer Miller. “I can mix up the vegetables based on what I have and everyone loves it.”

Sigeumchi Namul (Spinach Banchan)

Sigeumchi Namul is a flavorful spinach side dish you’ll want to eat on repeat. “This is your entry ticket into the world of Korean banchan,” says Editor Myo Quinn. “Don’t be surprised if you find yourself drizzling sesame oil on everything .”

Green Tahini Sauce

Liven up your grain bowls with this quick green tahini sauce! “This has become a go-to,” says Senior Editor Sara Bir. “It's quick to whip up in the summer when I have assorted fresh herbs; I love that it works with just one herb, like parsley, or a mix of others like dill and cilantro.”

Cherry Cake

A cake that works for breakfast and dessert? Sign me up! “I basically buy cherries every chance I get and to find a recipe that incorporates them into a buttery snacking cake is a dream come true,” says Editor Milagros Cruz .

Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto

We talk about “magic-making” recipes a lot at Simply Recipes—the meals that can feed a family in no time, but also feel special. This is one of those dishes.

Basque-Style Pumpkin Cheesecake

This recipe from Karishma Pradhan was the star of my Thanksgiving dessert table this year. It’s not fussy to make—there’s no water bath involved—and the texture and flavor is just spot on. If you’re not familiar with Basque-style cheesecake, it’s essentially a cheesecake that “self-crusts'' itself (so there’s no graham cracker situation going on).

10. Lemony Tortellini Soup with Spinach and Dill

Silky and comforting yet light and spring-y, this tortellini and spinach soup is the perfect winter-to-spring meal.

9. Strip Steak au Poivre

A nice steak plus this simple pan sauce will fulfill all your 10 p.m. Parisian dinner dreams.

8. Green Curry Lentil Soup

Green curry paste adds heat and lots of complex flavor to this 30-minute lentil soup.

7. Sheet-Pan Gnocchi

This gnocchi (Is it pasta? Is it a salad?) with a jammy cherry tomato sauce takes just 25 minutes and one pan.

6. Cabbage Roll Casserole

All the flavors of Eastern European cabbage rolls, but without the rolling.

5. Sesame Tofu With Broccoli

A riff on Chinese American sesame chicken, this recipe is super sesame-y from the sauce up: Tahini (an untraditional but logical addition) adds richness, and sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds hit the flavor home.

4. Caramel Crunch–Chocolate Chunklet Cookies

These chocolate chunklet cookies are ingeniously baked in a muffin tin, resulting in perfectly crispy, caramelized edges and soft centers.

31. New York Sour

The perfect balance of fruity red wine and smoky-sweet bourbon, the New York Sour cocktail is a classic for a reason. Shaking the cocktail with large ice cubes will chill the cocktail without diluting it—and those large cubes look great in a rocks glass, too. Be sure to pour the wine slowly over the back of the spoon to create the perfect float.

30. Gina Mae's Baked Beans

Scholar Regina Bradley (nicknamed Gina Mae as a child) added a few special touches to her husband's baked beans recipe to make it her own. "A cookout's DNA is found in the sides and who made them. This task is not for the faint of heart or the thin-skinned," wrote Bradley, in an essay on the hierarchy of the cookout for Food & Wine.

29. Carrot Cake Marmalade with Yogurt and Fresh Fruit

At Molly's Rise and Shine in New Orleans, diners rave about the yogurt bowl topped with sunny roasted carrot marmalade. This take on chef Mason Hereford's marmalade gets big flavor from stewing carrots and apple with cinnamon, cardamom, and star anise for a warmly spiced result.

28. Maria Cookie Icebox Cake

Toasty, slightly sweet Maria cookies were an after-school snack staple for pastry chef Paola Velez while growing up in the Bronx—here, she transforms those beloved cookies into an icebox cake, layered with a sweetly spiced cream filling, topped with luscious dulce de leche, and festooned with strawberries and flowers.

27. Gaeng Rawaeng

At Nari in San Francisco, diners delighted in chef Pim Techamuanvivit's gaeng rawaeng, a whole Cornish game hen submerged in a deeply savory golden curry redolent with spices, served with impossibly flaky roti for sopping.

26. Life-Changing Udon with Soft-Boiled Egg, Hot Soy, and Black Pepper

Butter, egg yolk, and starch enrich the soy broth, dressing chewy udon noodles in a silky sauce inspired by cookbook author Hetty McKinnon's visit to Udon Shin, a restaurant in Tokyo's bustling Shinjuku ward. Sharp black pepper and scallions break up its deeply savory edge with light spice and fresh flavor.

25. Smoky Breakfast Pizzas

Chef Justin Bazdarich makes his Kind Brother pizza at Speedy Romeo in Brooklyn extra luxurious with a combination of béchamel and smoked mozzarella. This easy version also gets a kick from smoked mozzarella, plus a drizzle of fresh basil oil for a pop of freshness.
