Greek yogurt gets all the glory for being a versatile concentrated source of protein that can be used in either sweet or savory dishes, but it comes at a price.

This easy recipe for chicken tikka kebabs from London restaurant Dishoom is delicious for sharing but simple enough to make for yourself. Don’t expect the saucy chicken tikka masala you may know. “Chicken tikka” merely means chicken pieces, and this recipe threads chunks of chicken thigh on skewers after a marinade in vinegar and spices.

This delicate, buttery milk and honey cake proves desserts don’t have to be elaborate to impress. Pleasantly crumbly, not too sweet or too tangy (though the type of honey you use will influence the flavor), it’s best when slightly under-baked.

I always hear people talk about how expensive vegetables are, and that’s why it’s impossible to eat healthy on a budget. Au contraire, mon frere!

This chard galette recipe is not only a great source of nutrients, but a great way to use up whatever greens and veggies you have on hand (here, potatoes are mixed with the chard, but it could just as easily be kale and roasted beets). It ends up somewhere in between a veggie pizza and […]

Braising endive tones down its bitterness and brings out a bit of natural sweetness, while also making it tender. Crisp bacon brings salt and crunch, and the grainy Dijon mustard sauce is silky, buttery, and bright with lemon, garlic, and fresh thyme. This makes a great side dish for roast chicken, salmon, or pork, but […]

I’m all about making things from scratch. When it makes sense. If you’re cooking an entire Thanksgiving dinner by yourself, I think it makes sense to take a few shortcuts.
