We always had some sort of braised red cabbage during the Jewish holidays, especially Rosh Hashana, when I was little. I remember being very skeptical of the sweet and sour jumble, but then really falling for it.

If you’re a fan of traditional French onion soup — and who isn’t? — you’re going to love this burger.

When it comes to landing dinner on the table on a weeknight, fish fillets are among the very quickest dishes you can prepare, rarely requiring more than five minutes to go from raw to ready to eat. And given the relative mildness of a fish’s flavor, they’re a natural canvas for a vast palette of seasonings (and acid, too), meaning they turn out just about exactly as flavorful as you make them.

Pork Schnitzel with Cucumber Salad

Late summer fruit is perhaps my favorite. Berries are juicy and sweet, in their last flourish before slipping away into elite and expensive status. Peaches and plums are soft and caramel-like in flavor. Even the humble pebbly-skinned cantaloupe boasts rich orange flesh and syrupy-sweet flavor.

Korean-Style Grilled Short Ribs

Those who love short ribs LOVE them. Those who haven’t cooked them at home before might be a little intimidated by them. Let’s bridge that gap.

Beans are an inexpensive and lean source of protein, fiber and micronutrients. But it’s easy to fall into a bean rut. White beans, black beans, garbanzo beans and fresh green beans easily make their way to the table relatively frequently.
