Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá

This classic bacalhau à Gomes de Sá, or Portuguese salt cod-potato-onion casserole, is authentic in all ways but one: Instead of peeling, boiling, and cutting the potatoes, they’re very thinly sliced, layered in the dish, and cooked in the oven.

Crockery filled with bacalhau a Gomes de Sa--layers of salt cod, potato, and, onions; on top, sliced olives, quartered boiled eggs, parsley on wood

I grew up being served bacalhau à Gômes de Sá. Eating it was something entirely different. I refused to eat anything Portuguese when I was a kid. (Or at least I tried.) But over the...

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Bacon Cornbread

This bacon cornbread, a Southern staple, is made with corn kernels and bacon–plenty of bacon–and, of course, bacon drippings for a super moist and flavorful bite.

Cucumber Gimlet

This cucumber gimlet, made with gin, cucumber, simple syrup, and lime, is a classic cocktail with a twist. Or rather, a slice–of cucumber!

This is not your classic gimlet. The 50s classic, typically made with the mouth-twitchingly puckery Rose’s lime juice and gin, is perfectly fine. But when you swap out bottled citrus flavor for real lime and add to it the lightly vegetal note...

Pistachio Gelato

Pistachio gelato, made properly, relies upon nothing but pistachios, milk, cream, egg yolks, sugar, and salt for its flavor and color. That’s why true pistachio gelato isn’t Frankenstein green. Sppons at the ready!

Rye Berry Salad with Herbed Kefir Dressing

This hearty, healthy, and delicious grain salad is also versatile; you can eat it on its own or serve it as a side for grilled or roasted fish or meat. And since it keeps well for up to a week, it’s the perfect make-ahead meal to take on picnics, hikes, camping trips, and to potlucks, or to pack for work or school lunches. If you’ve never had rye berries, they’re pleasantly chewy and extremely healthy, and if you haven’t tried kefir, it’s a probiotic powerhouse akin to a thinner, tangier yogurt. Mixed with fresh herbs, it provides a creamy, piquant counterpoint to the nutty rye berries, sweet carrots, and crisp fried onions. You can add other vegetables and herbs to the salad if you wish.

Notes: As long as you wash your carrots well, you can leave them unpeeled; it saves time and boosts nutrition. You’ll only get as much dressing and as many fried onions as you need for this salad, but both components are well worth making on their own to garnish other dishes too. The dressing will keep for up to a month in an airtight container in the fridge. The onions are fried in ghee, which is basically clarified butter that’s been cooked longer until slightly nutty; you can make your own or purchase it ready-made. If making this salad ahead, store the onions separately to keep them crunchy and add just before eating.

How to Freeze Herbs

To freeze herbs, all you need are your favorite aromatics from the garden or the rest of that bunch of cilantro you bought last week, a little lovely olive oil, and an ice cube tray to preserve that herbaceousness for another day. You’ll never toss perfectly good herbs again.

Chilled Avocado, Cucumber, and Kefir Soup

If you’re not familiar with the probiotic superfood kefir, it’s similar to yogurt, but thinner and tangier, and perfect for incorporating into all sorts of dishes, from breakfast smoothies to desserts. This chilled kefir, cucumber, and avocado soup is ultra refreshing on a hot summer day, and can be whipped up in mere minutes. Plus, it’s a cinch to scale up and makes a great light and healthy yet creamy and satisfying addition to a picnic or dinner party menu. Fresh mint and diced cucumber make bright garnishes; if transporting this, pack them separately and top off each bowl as you serve.

Note: The author uses Persian cucumbers, as she prefers to leave the skin on. If you can’t find Persian cucumbers, use any seedless variety.

For a couple more twists on the classic cold soup (that’d be Spanish tomato gazpacho), try our Cucumber and Green Grape Gazpacho recipe and our Watermelon Gazpacho recipe too.
