  • This is Our New Favorite Roast Chicken

    "In the EDF test kitchen, we're always looking for new ways to roast a chicken. Not only does the result turn out beautifully, but it makes an elegant meal that feeds your whole family (what more could you want?). Today, I'm roasting my bird with an unexpected -- but incredibly delicious -- ingredient: celery root. This heavy vegetable may look odd, but break through its dense outer layer to uncover a delightfully crisp core. If you love roasting your chicken with potatoes, then you will adore this recipe (roasted celery root becomes crunchy on the outside and silky on the inside -- just like a traditional spud). So start your ovens and get roasting tonight!"

    "Sometimes, the best dinners are also the easiest to prepare. Not only does today's recipe fall right into that category, but it's also incredibly good for you!

What does that mean for you? It means that the healthiest dinner around is also one of the most delicious! Bon appetit!"

    "Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed plenty of good times -- and good food -- with your loved ones. After all of the turkey, stuffing, and other holiday fare, I wanted to ease up on the meat-heavy food today. That's why I've prepared a completely vegetarian roasted squash and mushroom pasta that comes together in less than an hour. This hearty but healthy dish also gets a sprinkle of breadcrumbs and Parmesan, which adds just the right amount of crunch. With the holiday season fully upon us, make this easy meatless dish (there's plenty of time for more turkey!)."

  • These Cookies Are Just as Delicious as Thumbprints and Twice as Easy!

    "Are you ready to make a great cookie? Today's recipe is not only delicious and easy, but it makes a big batch, so it's perfect for sharing with all of your friends and family during the holidays. It's a "jamaretti" cookie (a.k.a. an amaretti cookie with a jam center) with a sugar glaze. These little treats are every bit as delightful as jam-filled thumbprints but take about half the time to make since they're sliced after baking (meaning you don't need a single cookie cutter to make this recipe). And since this dough can be prepped and frozen up to a week in advance, you can plan ahead for your next cookie swap! Happy holidays."

  • Steak + Pears + Pecans = the Ultimate Dinner Salad

    tk"Who has hours to spend making dinner every night? That's why all week long, I'm sharing my favorite recipes for quick-cooking meals that don't skimp on flavor. Today's recipe for broiled skirt steak with a pear and pecan salad easily falls into that category. As promised, this meal is super fast to make -- it takes less than 30 minutes from prep to table.
