THE RECIPES
Seared Scallop Pasta with a Warm Bacon-Corn Vinaigrette

Crispy on the outside yet smooth as butter on the inside, these scallops are the ultimate luxurious dinner. Served with a heaping bowl of noodles doused in a cozy corn-bacon vinaigrette, this scallop dinner is one for the books.
 

Feedfeed Tip It's all about the sear on scallops! Wondering the trick to the trade? Make sure you are starting with dry scallops! You can either blot them totally dry with a paper towel or tea towel, or leave them unwrapped in the fridge overnight. Check out more tips for making this easy but impressive recipe here
Pittsburg Style Steak Salad with Creamy Green Goddess Dressing 

Now that is a salad! The herbaceous green goddess dressing really highlights all of the different flavors and textures included in the salad.

Feedfeed Tip Be sure to cut your flank steak against the grain! Cutting it with the grain will result in a tough and chewy texture.

Feedfeed Tip There is nothing less appealing than rubbery chicken skin so be sure to crisp up the thighs before placing them into the oven.

Vietnamese Chicken Salad by @alextcooks

This refreshing salad is sweet, spicy & packed with umami flavor. If you'd prefer to go meatless, you can swap the chicken with tofu instead.

One Pot Chicken Caprese Pasta

We are sort of in love with one-pot pasta and we think you should be too.

Feedfeed Tip We know breaking pasta is a big no-no, but it's essential for this recipe. Shorter strands of noodles will allow you to stir this pasta vigorously which will result in a risotto like consistency.
