The Best Simple Recipes
Most quick recipe collections promise a lot, but deliver very little. Bland, uninspired dishes may be fast, but would anyone want to cook them again? With years of experience and thousands of recipe tests behind us, our team has developed more than 200 approachable, foolproof recipes that can be at the table in 30 minutes or lessâ€”and every single dish delivers on flavor. By combining steps, minimizing pans, and employing a little test kitchen trickery, weâ€™ve made naturally fast recipes even faster, and in some cases shaved hours off the cooking time of traditionally long-cooking dishes.
