Even more summer dessert recipes
Those were our top tier summer dessert recipes: but we’ve got lots more to choose from! Here are a few more that stand out in our favorites:
Easy Apple Crumble This easy recipe fills a 9 x 13 inch pan with crunchy topping and a gingery apple filling.
Chewy Cookie Cake This chewy chocolate chip cookie cake recipe is a serious crowd pleaser: the perfect treat for pitch ins!
Easy Applesauce Cake Perfectly moist, scented with cinnamon and brown sugar. And you mix the entire dough in the cake pan! No mixing bowls required.
Blueberry Banana Ice Cream Bananas and berries blended into a healthy spin on ice cream! Sometimes called “banana nice cream,” it’s oh so good.
Make the crust: Follow the directions in the Homemade Quiche Crust recipe to make the dough and shape it into a 9-inch pie plate. You can do either a fork pressed edge or a fluted edge. Then freeze the crust in the pie pan for 30 minutes (this helps to avoid shrinkage; you can skip the freezing portion for a purchased pastry crust).
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Blind bake*: Remove the dough from the freezer. Crumble a sheet of parchment paper, then place it gently on top of the crust. Fill the dough with pie weights (we used two sets of these), dry beans, or dry rice. Bake for 15 minutes, then carefully remove the parchment and weights and bake an additional 14 to 15 minutes until the bottom is golden brown (note that the timing may vary if you use store-bought pastry dough). Remove from the oven and allow the crust to cool completely before adding the strawberry filling. To cool it quickly, you can very gently slide it into another pie pan of the same size and place it on a cooling rack; this should cool it in about 10 to 15 minutes while you make the filling. (Or, the baked crust can be wrapped in plastic and stored in the refrigerator for 2 days.)
Make strawberry filling: Wash, destem and quarter the strawberries lengthwise, cutting very large berries into smaller pieces. Take 1 cup of the quartered strawberries (reserve the rest), place them in a bowl, and smash them with a fork until each one is mashed. Add the smashed berries and their juices to a large saucepan. Add the sugar, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is bubbling, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Then in a small bowl, combine the cornstarch with ¼ cup water and whisk until dissolved. Add the cornstarch mixture to the saucepan and cook, stirring often while it bubbles, for 1 to 2 minutes until very thick and glossy. Turn off the heat. Add the remaining fresh strawberries to the pan and turn with spatula until they are fully coated with the very thick sauce.
Immediately scoop the strawberry filling into the cooled pie crust. Use clean fingers to arrange the strawberries in the top layer (you may need to flip some over to make it look nice). Allow to cool in the refrigerator for 2 hours before serving until it sets. Serve topped with homemade whipped cream. Lasts up to 3 days refrigerated.
*Blind baking the pie crust shrinks it a bit. For a larger puffy crust, you can make 1.5 times the recipe and cut scraps to reinforce the sides. Go to How to Blind Bake a Pie Crust.
**Arrowroot may work as a substitute, but we have not tested it. Try at your own risk!

We’re crowning broccoli (pun intended) the MVP of green vegetables—in springtime and all the time. You’ve seen it take the stage as an attention-grabbing side dish; it often mingles with cheddar for creamy soups and crunchy casseroles; and it tends to make its way into all manner of pasta dishes, both hot and cold.
You'll notice that a few of these recipes call for broccolini (aka baby broccoli or Chinese broccoli, which has a sweeter flavor and thinner form than regular broccoli) or broccoli rabe (aka rapini, which is a bitter cousin to broccoli in the mustard family). Broccolini and broccoli rabe look very similar but taste pretty different, so keep an eye out for which one you're grabbing from the store or market before cooking. In general, you can swap in one for the other—or regular ol' broccoli for either—in any of these recipes, but just know that the flavor might be slightly different.

Here, you’ll find traditional methods for cooking risotto in a large skillet or saucier, as well as a modern-day technique, which calls for cooking risotto in an Instant Pot.

Our editors started talking about Thanksgiving this year as soon as Thanksgiving last year was over. We started publishing holiday recipes long before November kicked off. All of which means—no, there is not a single roast turkey on this list. You’re welcome! Instead, we’ve got a savory pie that just happens to be vegan, a feel-good farro bowl with broccoli and olives, and a few-ingredient apple dessert that couldn’t be prettier if it tried.

My definition of a perfect bowl of macaroni and cheese consists of corkscrew-shaped pasta, a sharp cheese sauce (perhaps with some combination of Swiss, cheddar, and Gruyere), a touch of nutmeg and black pepper, and a buttery topping of crispy breadcrumbs. Preferably, I would eat it as is, but I’m not above adding pulled pork or lobster meat either.
There are so many things to love about macaroni and cheese, but one of the biggest perks is that it’s completely customizable. You can swap out the pasta shape (say medium sized shells instead of elbow macaroni), change around the cheeses, or add more heat if you’re feeling spicy in the form of diced jalapeños, cracked black pepper, or dry mustard.

We've teamed up with Vermont Creamery to share our all-time best recipes starring goat cheese.

Especially one that's fresh and mild, like Vermont Creamery's Classic Goat Cheese, which is versatile enough for both savory dishes and baked goods on the sweeter side.
