Martha Stewart's Chicken and Kale Casserole

Baked pasta dishes should be hearty, but sometimes they turn out heavy, too—and those two things don't necessarily need to go hand in hand. Sure, it's easy enough to load up a baking dish with pasta and cheese and meat and whatever else, but this recipe from Martha Stewart is a little more delicate. There's plenty of kale to stand in for some of the pasta, and an airy ricotta to keep things light. More

Dinner Tonight: Corn Cakes with Goat Cheese and Bacon

It's that time of year (at least in the Midwest) when it's nearly impossible to stumble across a bad ear of corn. They are obviously wonderful when cooked simply and slathered in butter, but I'm also a fan of taking the fantastically sweet kernels off the cob and using them to perk up what would normally be a standard dish. This recipe from Martha Stewart would probably be fine with frozen corn, but using the best stuff makes a real difference. More

Dinner Tonight: Lettuce Hearts with Serrano, Fried Croutons and Tomatoes

Just when I think I've combined bread, lettuce, cured ham, and tomatoes in every conceivable way, I stumble across a new delicious way to get it done. This recipe from Martha Stewart's Dinner At Home uses the hearts from four heads of Boston lettuce as a base (you can save the outer leaves for another salad) and then adds crunchy croutons, crispy ham, and sautéed cherry tomatoes. None of these elements sound particularly interesting on their own, but each manages to have a little edge. More

Dinner Tonight: Cornbread and Beef Skillet Pie

It's not often that I have pounds of ground beef in my fridge and burgers aren't planned for dinner that evening. But I really wanted to try something new. I initially considered meatloaf, but I couldn't find the right recipe (do you have one for me?). Then I came across this recipe from Martha Stewart for a cornbread and beef skillet pie with red peppers and mushrooms. While the meat portion of the dish sounded good, I was ultimately sold on the biscuits that cooked on top. More

Dinner Tonight: Cheese Flautas with Cilantro Pesto

I usually don't look to Martha Stewart for my Mexican recipes. (That's what Rick Bayless is for.) But for some reason I couldn't get past this one. I think what sold me were the pumpkin seeds. Usually flautas, sometimes called taquitos, are stuffed with ground beef and cheddar cheese. They can be good in a gut-bomb kind of way, but that's about it. On the other hand, these featured pumpkin seeds which are ground with the garlic and cilantro to create a kind of pesto. More
