Light and Tender Cream Biscuits

Serious Eats Marissa Sertich Velie 10 comments

Short of a box mix, the cream biscuit is by far the simplest biscuit formula out there. Dry ingredients are whisked together and heavy cream is gently stirred in. That's it. In fact, the biscuit dough will probably be ready before your oven has fully preheated. More

Quick Barbecue Beans

Great barbecue beans don't need to take half a day to make—using canned beans with a sauce built from scratch delivers a lot of the depth associated with more time-intensive recipes.

Greek-Style Okra With Tomato, Feta, and Marjoram From 'The New Southern Table'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

I was one of those weird kids who always liked okra. Something about the snappy skin and pop of the seeds made me forget the slime and embrace the long, pointy vegetables. I did, of course, almost always eat okra breaded and deep fried, so maybe I just liked the salty, greasy crunch. More

Grilled Kale Salad With Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

Serious Eats Lauren Rothman Post a comment

Kale is one of the trendiest vegetables these days, but it's still possible to serve it in a surprising way: grilled. Smoky and with a touch of crunch, hearty lacinato leaves are a delightful, if unusual, vehicle for a vinaigrette made with crisped bacon, shallots, and apple cider vinegar. It's a killer side dish you'll want to nestle alongside your potato salad and hamburgers at your next BBQ. More

Skillet Cornbread with Pecan Dukkah From 'Afro-Vegan'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

Despite the fact that I have a strong allegiance to plain Southern-style cornbread smeared with a thick layer of butter, I quite like Bryant Terry's nutty, butter-free version in his new cookbook, Afro-Vegan. Chalk it up to the creative use of dukkah, one of my favorite spice blends. More

Romaine Salad with Candied Walnuts and Pecorino From 'Roberta's'

Serious Eats Kate Williams Post a comment

We've made our fair share of Caesar salads here on Serious Eats over the years. Heck, I've made a few of them. So I'm not exactly breaking new ground here. But until I picked up the Roberta's cookbook, I had never seen a version so austere in appearance and yet bold in flavor. More
