Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 5 comments

This homemade play on Arby's Beef n' Cheddar sandwich—a roast beef sandwich blanketed in cheese sauce—is made with a full-flavored sharp Cheddar-cheese sauce and gets some extra oomph from a bracing, nose-clearing horseradish sauce. More

Dinner Tonight: Cheesy Grits With Sautéed Ham and Kale

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Cheesy grits may be delicious as a side dish, but top them with kale that's been simmered in chicken stock with smoky ham and they become a flavorful, hearty meal. A dash of vinegary hot sauce, and you may never want to eat them on their own again. More

Dinner Tonight: One-Skillet Cod and Kale With Ginger and Garlic

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Cod and kale may seem like an unlikely combination, but, when cooked until tender, the robust green actually makes a fantastic backdrop to the delicate, white-fleshed fish. In this quick and easy one-skillet dinner, we braise dinosaur kale (also known as Tuscan kale) in an aromatic mixture of rice wine, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger, then steam fillets of codfish on top.

Dinner Tonight: Open-Faced Egg Salad Sandwich With Bacon

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 9 comments

It's important to know what a specific loaf of bread can and cannot do. So when I got my hands on the astonishing crusty bread, I decided to be as simple as possible, whipping up a straightforward batch of egg salad, and serving the result as an open-faced sandwich. More

Dinner Tonight: Breakfast Torta With Bacon, Eggs, and Chipotle Guacamole

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Ham and eggs is a very common torta filling in Mexico, and for a good reason. The salty slices bring texture and loads of porkiness to the game, while the eggs help bulk it out. But you know what is crispier and more intense than ham? That's right. Bacon. More

Dinner Tonight: Orecchiette With Broccoli Rabe, Spicy Italian Sausage, and Pesto

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

After years of drinking Negronis, I've grown to love the sensation of bitter broccoli rabe, just so long as it is balanced by something else. In this dish, the foil comes from both spicy sausage and some fresh pesto. More

Dinner Tonight: Pasta With Brown Butter, Cinnamon, Almonds, and Goat Cheese

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

I had all kinds of ideas of how to make this recipe my own, but all the embellishments felt forced, so I stripped almost all of them away. I only had one true insight, and that was to add slivered almonds. More

Dinner Tonight: Pancakes With Bourbon Maple Sauce and Toasted Pecans

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

After a few bites you'll feel warm and ready to tackle the cold. But because it's late in the day and the sauce is spiked, you can skip the chopping wood part, and instead plop down on the couch and fall asleep early. More
