ASK COOK’S COUNTRY
Which Electric Griddle Is Best?
Greek Home Alabama
Greek Baked Chicken • This Alabama favorite features old-world flavors in a wholly American way.
Sweet-and-Sour Baby Back Ribs • Grab a napkin—these indoor ribs are sticky, flavorful, and impossibly tender.
German Potato Salad • Most potato salads are delicious, but this vintage German version had fixer-upper written all over it.
Weeknight Ground Beef Tacos • Our goal: a taco filling flavorful enough to make you want to ditch the prefab spice mix.
Mexican Rice • This staple side’s beauty lies in its simplicity and a careful balance of fresh flavors.
Steak Marsala • Buttery, sweet, and savory Marsala sauce is perfect when partnered with chicken cutlets. But what about pairing it with steak?
Broccoli and Cheese Casserole • Old-school broccoli and cheese casserole is not bad. But with an update, it can be great.
A Louisiana “Plate Lunch” Original
Cajun Stuffed Turkey Wings • This little-known Cajun classic deserves a bigger audience.
Popcorn Chicken • Bite-size fried chicken is a big seller at fast-food restaurants. Our recipe makes it just as big a hit at home.
Are Ready-to-Bake Biscuits Any Good?
Pasta Aglio e Olio • Would we be able to create a silky, creamy pasta dish without the added cheese?
Salt • Our bodies require salt for survival; our dinners require it to taste good. Properly salting food is one of the most important skills in all of cooking.
Stuffed Pork Tenderloin • To bump up the mild flavor of pork tenderloin, we worked from the inside out.
Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms • Our easy technique transforms what is typically a tired, squishy vegetarian entrée into a tender, flavor-packed dish anyone would love to eat.
Clementine Cake • Ground whole clementines in a cake? When done right, it makes for a bright, delicious, citrus-kissed dessert.
Triple-Chocolate Sticky Buns • Naysayers said not to mess with a good thing. We love proving naysayers wrong.
Caesar Salad • Our foolproof method—and a good bit of whisking—produces a bold, bright Caesar salad that just may be the best you’ve ever had.
Candied Bacons • The goal: equal parts sweet, savory, salty, smoky, and satisfying.
Huevos Rancheros • We wanted a hearty breakfast that was fast and easy enough to throw together while the coffee was brewing.
Meatloaf Dinner • There’s something nostalgic about a classic meatloaf supper, but there’s no nostalgia for doing lots of dishes.
Herbed Pork Roast with White Beans and Kale • We set out to keep this dish’s rustic appeal with a lot less work.
Stainless-Steel Skillets • A versatile stainless-steel frying pan is the backbone of most kitchens. But can you get a great 12-inch pan for less than $100?
American Provolone • This mild-mannered Italian-style cheese finally gets its chance to shine.
Orange Chocolate Mousse
Chocolate Strawberry Cake • For Valentine’s Day, we made a decadent chocolate cake and frosted it with strawberry buttercream. Fresh strawberries, glazed with jam, sit on top and make this cake truly shine.
