Recipe: Creamy Curried Carrot Soup
If you’re looking for a recipe to turn you into a soup person, here’s the one that did it for me. A surprisingly simple ingredient list — featuring sweet spring carrots and spicy fresh ginger — yields a silky-smooth, bold-flavored soup that’s perfect for these chilly early April evenings. The best puréed soups are rich and velvety-smooth (but stop short of verging into baby-food territory).

Recipe: Romaine and Celery Salad with Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
There’s a reason why a packet of ranch seasoning is the secret to so many crazy-delicious recipes, from chicken marinade and yogurt dip to potato salad and popcorn seasoning (yeah, you should try it). It just has that special something (along with a heavy dose of nostalgia) that homemade recipes can’t quite seem to capture.

Recipe: No-Bake 5-Ingredient Whipped Pumpkin Cheesecake
It’s no secret that pumpkin cheesecake is the ultimate crowd-pleasing fall dessert. But making a full-sized cheesecake from scratch is no small feat. So I took all the best parts of the creamy, tangy dessert — the light-as-air spiced pumpkin filling, the crumbly graham cracker crust, the swoosh of whipped cream — and packed them into miniature single-serve treats. They’re just as tasty as the real deal, and they’re ready to serve to guests in just 10 minutes.

Recipe: Ina Garten’s Triple Chocolate Loaf Cake
The fact that Ina Garten managed to create a triple chocolate loaf cake that’s wonderfully light and tender — better suited for afternoon tea or coffee than as a decadent dessert — is a true gift. With its crackly top and walnut- and chocolate-studded crumb, it satisfies my daily hankering for a chocolate treat without leaving me with a stomachache (if I don’t go back for a second slice, that is).

Recipe: Big-Batch Brownie Batter Hot Chocolate
If I’m drinking hot chocolate, I’m going all in — a packet of hot cocoa mix stirred into hot water certainly won’t cut it. No, I want something rich and over-the-top, with an intense chocolate flavor from both cocoa powder and chopped chocolate. My mug should be overflowing with mini marshmallows and drizzles of chocolate syrup. And that’s exactly what this brownie batter hot chocolate delivers. There are many brilliant things happening in this recipe.

Sweet Potato Cardamom Buns with Pistachio and Orange
The secret to a stress-free brunch party? Finding a foolproof, big-batch, crowd-pleasing recipe you can count on every time. This is mine (and should be yours, too). These fluffy buns are sweet enough to please the pastry-lovers but much less sugary than your average cinnamon roll. Round out the table with a big bowl of fresh fruit and a pot of hot coffee, and you’ve got a pretty perfect breakfast spread on your hands.

How To Make the Absolute Easiest Homemade Crescent Rolls
Canned crescent rolls were a special treat when I was a kid, but having eaten them again recently, I’m not nearly as impressed. They’re fun to roll and taste pretty decent straight from the oven, but if they cool off even just the slightest, they quickly become dry and pretty flavorless. No wonder we were always stuffing them with peanut butter and chocolate as kids! On the flip side, homemade crescent rolls are a commitment.
