I've always been terrible at planning, which works out, since my wife plans enough for the both of us. Sometimes this can be relaxing. But other times, it can be a bit more of a challenge. Case in point: inviting our neighbors over for dinner. Normally, a semi-impromptu dinner party is no problem for me, but entertaining guests while maintaining a strict vegan diet is a little different, particularly when it's on the kind of freezing cold night that requires the heartiest of meals. Could I come up with something that would keep a dinner party of mixed omni- and vegan company satisfied?

This cocktail was created by Leo Robitschek of The Nomad and Eleven Madison Park in New York City. It spices up apple cider with rye and Amaro Abano, an amaro that's a bit more bitter than Averna, and a bit less mentholated-tasting than Fernet.
Real-deal tacos al pastor are made by cooking stacked, marinated pork shoulder slices in front of a vertical rotisserie. Here's how to get the same slow-cooked, crisply charred effect at home, no rotisserie required.

All the flavor of a classic baked ziti with tomato sauce and cheese, but in a single skillet, start to finish.
We'll start off with stirring. After all, little else can happen to a drink until you've mixed it, and stirring is the technique at the heart of many of our most long-lived cocktails.
This panna cotta is light and creamy, with a great tang from the buttermilk and just slightly sweet. It's my go-to recipe when I want a simple dessert to serve to dinner guests because everyone loves it, and I don't want to spend half the night in the kitchen pulling it together.
We served this tart, tangy, and boozy Negroni-inspired punch at our 3rd Annual Serious Eats Cookie Swap, and the revelers demanded a second batch almost immediately.

I have a habit of tossing huge pinches of red pepper flakes into all pasta dishes that cross my stove, so I was immediately drawn to the Bucatini Fra Diavolo in the new Franny's cookbook. Andrew Feinberg, Francine Stephens, and Melissa Clark's recipe takes this classically spicy tomato sauce and freshens it up with close to a full cup of fresh herbs.
I knew right away that this was something I'd make again and again. The essence of the recipe: 6 simple ingredients, done in less than 20 minutes.

I've made a lot of fancy flavored birthday cakes for other people, but when my birthday rolls around, I prefer the same old-school, yellow cake that I remember my mom making for me. Hers was made from a boxed mix, but my version is homemade. This cake tastes how good yellow cake should; buttery, light, and moist. I use a soaker of simple syrup with real vanilla bean to ensure that the layers pack extra moisture and flavor.
