We Spend The Old Year And Meet The New 2023 With Our Favorite Recipes

I can’t even count how many times I made Ali Slagle’s arugula salad with Parmesan for lunch or as a side with dinner. I’m craving it as I write this.

Chicken Piccata

The recipe is easy on all cooks, and it turns out restaurant-quality results faster than I can figure out a takeout order.

Tuna Melt

This year, I craved one thing more than anything else: chewiness. That resulted in cooking many noodle dishes, consuming copious amounts of bread and keeping a bag of mochiko flour at the ready so I could make Genevieve Ko’s butter mochi whenever the craving struck.

Butter Mochi

I’m always trying to cook different recipes from our database, and I’m extremely bad at sticking to routines, so it’s rare that I cook any dish truly on repeat.
