We’ve teamed up with Brava to share speedy, delicious meal ideas using their sleek, high-tech kitchen appliance. Nope, it’s not an oven—the Brava uses the precision of light to cook food perfectly, every time, and features a nifty multi-zone functionality that lets you make a complete meal (from the protein to the veggies) all on one tray.


When I was 7 years old, I really wanted an Easy Bake oven. The commercials of jovial kids watching little pans roll on the conveyor belt under that light bulb to reveal the perfect bite-sized brownie made my tiny heart go pitter-patter. I gathered up my courage and asked my mom for one. She looked at me and sighed, “No. You’re already using the regular oven.” It’s true, I started cooking at 4 years old, but damn, I was disappointed. Twenty-odd years later, enter the Brava—here to make all my childhood (and adult!) hopes and dreams come true.

12 Martha Stewart Recipes We Can’t Stop Making—From One-Pan Pasta to Slab Pie

According to my mother, Martha Stewart is the queen of, well, everything. From her chic crafting supplies and flower-arranging tips to her party decor ideas and her cooking show with Snoop Dogg (yes, that Snoop Dogg), there doesn’t seem to be anything …

According to my mother, Martha Stewart is the queen of, well, everything. From her chic crafting supplies and flower-arranging tips to her party decor ideas and her cooking show with Snoop Dogg (yes, that Snoop Dogg), there doesn't seem to be anything she can't do. And at 80, the lifestyle guru continues to evolve. She has launched a line of CBD products for both humans and dogs; written close to 100 books; starred in a mini-series on HGTV called Martha Knows Best featuring a very handsome lineup of guests like Richard Gere, Antoni Porowski, and Zac Posen; and she even will soon be in the freezer section of your grocery store (in the form of high-quality prepared dinners). But of all the things Martha has mastered, her recipes are her greatest contribution—at least to my life. And on October 12th, 2021, Martha will be releasing her 99th (!) cookbook, Martha Stewart's Fruit Desserts: 100+ Delicious Ways to Savor the Best of Every Season.

Timeless and foolproof, Martha Stewart’s recipes have been a staple in my kitchen ever since I moved into my first apartment (we inaugurated those digs with her classic macaroni and cheese). And while I've never had a Martha recipe steer me in the wrong direction, there are a handful of favorites I turn to time and time again, most of which happen to live right here on Food52. One of her most popular recipes of all time is One-Pan Pasta, which calls for cooking spaghetti, cherry tomatoes, garlic, basil, and onions all in one large pasta pot in less than 10 minutes. It looks just as good cooking in the pan as it does when it’s twirled into a perfect mound on the plate, and it’s perfect for days when sweating over the stove for a long time is not an option. Martha also makes use of beloved appliances like the Instant Pot and slow-cooker for recipes like Vietnamese-Style Chicken Soup and Italian-Braised Pork

How to Make the Best Grilled Scallops

The best grilled scallops are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside—perfect to plunk on top of arugula salad, buttered spaghetti, creamy risotto, you name it, or served alongside everything from potato salad to charred corn. The worst gri…

The best grilled scallops are crisp on the outside and tender on the inside—perfect to plunk on top of arugula salad, buttered spaghetti, creamy risotto, you name it, or served alongside everything from potato salad to charred corn. The worst grilled scallops, meanwhile, are overcooked and rubbery and not at all what we want.

To help you reach Peak Scallop Perfection (it's out there!), we called in food writer and classically trained cook Christine Burns Rudalevige, who shares her top nine cooking tips below—plus, a ruby red grapefruit and chile glaze that the scallops totally love. (Psst: They also love an extra-cold rosé to go with.) And for even more A+ grilling recipes, tips, and tricks, check out our book Any Night Grilling by Paula Disbrowe. Now, fire up the grill and let's get started.

If I could, I'd eat a bowl of cold noodle salad every noon and night till the fall winds cometh.

Noodles are the softest, squiggliest landing pads for a variety of summer vegetables (not to mention all sorts of cubed cheeses and salty fridge accessories, like capers, olives, and anchovies). Add a heap of noodles to July tomatoes slicked with olive oil and suddenly, you've got a meal, not a snack. (Add a spoonful of chili paste and suddenly, you're a little chef.)

Our friends at Imperfect Foods are reimagining grocery delivery. With just a few clicks, you can have all your must-have ingredients for the week (and beyond) delivered straight to your doorstep. Here, Studio52 Director Shannon Muldoon—who recently made the switch to Imperfect Foods—shares how eliminating trips to the grocery store transformed her cooking routine.


Wandering the aisles of the grocery store after work used to be a hobby of mine. I knew where all of my go-to staples were and often found myself picking up new and random items along the way to challenge myself in the kitchen. While some of my friends and family had started using grocery delivery services, I preferred the old-school method of shopping in person. I also have a few dietary restrictions and a food allergy, so a grocery delivery service seemed totally out of the question for my lifestyle. I saw no reason to change my routine.
