Greek-Style Rice Pilaf With Chicken Thighs

This looks so delicious but my family are not big rice lovers. Do you think orzo would work by just not toasting the orzo? Thank you for the great recipe!

Have you ever cooked Corvina or Petrale Sole?

My local fish market had Corvina (also known as drum or white sea bass) and Petrale Sole. I got both because they looked so good. I've prepared Petrale Sole many times but have never seen Corvina. Does anyone have any suggestions for the Corvina other than ceviche and/or does anyone have any recipe suggestions for Petrale Sole? I usually roll the sole around some time of filling and bake it.

Thank you!

Espresso Bar Baked Treats

I run our church's Espresso Bar on the weekends. We like to offer delicious baked goods in addition to the beverages. I always have lemon bars, frosted sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies because they are the most popular and sometimes offer brownies and rice krispie treats but would like to try some new items. For some reason cupcakes and muffins are not popular with this crowd but bar cookies are extremely popular. Any suggestions from the Serious Eats bakers? Thank you!

Ropa Vieja recipe

Does anyone have a good recipe for Ropa Vieja they would be willing to share? My son had this recently and has been begging me to make it. I've found a few recipes on the internet but would like to get some input from the Serious Eats community.

Thank you!

Diabetic Beverages for Party

Hello! I am hosting a party for several ladies in the evening and I know two of them are diabetic and one does not drink alcohol. Does anyone have any suggestions for beverages I can serve them?

Red Enchilada Sauce

Short on ingredients, it's the process that transforms chiles and tomatoes into a sauce that has an incredibly robust tomato base with an earthy heat throughout—ready to make the best enchiladas ever. More

Sunday Supper: Turkey Tamale Pie

After spending the holiday cooking, a quick thrown-together meal like this simple tamale pie can be just the thing to ease you back into the impending work week. A box of cornbread mix and a can of Rotel tomatoes transform those last bits of turkey into a quick delicious dinner. More

Serious Eats' Halal Cart-Style Chicken and Rice with White Sauce 

Manhattan is home to many smells, but perhaps the most delicious is the chicken-y, savory scent that emanates from from the city's countless halal carts. Serving lunch to late-night, these carts dish up a container full of chicken rice that tastes like nothing else, crave-worthy and totally singular. To taste this particular chicken and rice you can get yourself to Midtown or try the home version, Kenji's Halal Cart-Style Chicken and Rice with White Sauce, a spot on rendition of the street food classic.

Andrew Carmellini's World's Best Biscuits. End of Story.

I've never been able to make a successful batch of biscuits. My botched attempts have reached the double digits. I finally just assumed me and biscuits weren't meant to be. But I reconsidered this notion after coming across a recipe in Andrew Carmellini's American Flavor entitled The World's Best Biscuits—End of Story. Any biscuits with a name like that were certainly worth their weight in flour, buttermilk, and shortening. More

Sunday Brunch: Potato Cakes

If you find yourself in the position of having too many leftover potatoes and not enough gravy, these simple cakes makes a quick crisp brunch. As they cook, the potatoes and cheese tend to get soft, so be gentle when flipping. A bloody mary and couple of potato cakes will surely take the edge off any sort of post holiday drowsiness. More

Quick Chile Verde

The secret to this quick, easy weeknight chile verde recipe is using ground pork instead of pork shoulder. It comes together in under an hour. Use the broiler to char the tomatillos and roast the garlic to create the sweet, smokey base. More

Dinner Tonight: Momofuku Steak Ssäm

Many of the recipes from the Momofuku cookbook are a bit too complicated for a weeknight, requiring more time (and ingredients) than what's usually featured on Dinner Tonight. But with good timing, I'm happy to report, the famous ssäm lettuce wraps are well within reach. Preparing the condiments and rice while the steak took a bath in its marinade—apple juice, soy sauce, garlic, and sesame oil—I was able to pull this recipe off in under an hour. More

Cook the Book: Grilled Hanger Steak with Korean Flavors and Spicy Potato Pancakes 

A simple steak frites is that kind of meal that has the ability to please just about everyone, vegetarians aside, of course. For this Grilled Hanger Steak with Korean Flavors and Spicy Potato PancakesAnita Lo has taken the steak-fries-and-salad combo on a trip east, accenting the plate with a selection of Korean elements that elevate the dish while retaining its simple integrity. More

Sunday Supper: Jambalaya

There are as many versions of jambalaya as there are cooks. In my house, the essential ingredients are green peppers, celery, onion, okra, rice, tomato and some sort of pork; but feel free to experiment and create your own list of essentials. If fresh okra is not in season use frozen cut okra, but be sure to use a brand you trust—some frozen okra can be distastefully fibrous. As always, homemade stock is best, but a grocery store version always works in a pinch. Coleslaw is a great side with this dinner, as is cold beer. More

Serious Entertaining: Bistro Dinner at Home

Bistro fare is perfect for making at home. It's French comfort food that has all taste with minimal fuss. There's nothing like a freshly roasted chicken or a warm, gooey apple tarte tatin to make you want to uncork a bottle of wine with friends. Ideally your house has red leather banquettes, wall length mirrors, and flattering, dim lighting. But if not, c'est la vie, this meal will still be delicious. More
