I don’t know about you, but I am happy to put March behind me. It’s such a transitional month — with winter and spring competing throughout — that I’ve always found it a bit unsettling. To add to that, we marked the pandemic’s one-year anniversary in the United States. So yes, I took comfort in good food over the past 31 days. I hope you did the same.

This month, we gave you lots of great recipes to cozy up to. Your favorites were a mix of classic and newfangled, from Irish lamb stew and old-school meatloaf to air fryer grilled cheese and pan-fried ravioli. These are the 10 new recipes you loved the most.
