"One of my favorite dishes in the book, this recipe comes from my friend Roopa Gulati. Her mom used to make it. It is actually very simple to cook—it’s just spiced roast chicken with dressed potatoes—but it is satisfying on every level. It looks like a painting when you set it on the table (all those dark colors); has contrasting flavors (slightly bitter turmeric beside sweet dates); and is an Indian dish that has a fairly limited ingredients list, so it’s not time-consuming to make. You ideally need fresh turmeric, which looks like a skinny, brightly colored ginger root. You’ll find it in larger supermarkets and Asian markets. If you can’t find it, use 1 tablespoon of ground turmeric instead, though it doesn’t make a paste." - Diana Henry, author of A Bird in the Hand: Chicken Recipes for Every Day and Every Mood

I'm not a fan of overly sweet drinks, desserts, or TV hostesses. In fact, I usually drink my vodka straight, because at the end of the day I'm just a simple girl who likes to get kicked out of bars in three-inch heels. But since this is a PJ party and not a Motörhead concert, I figured, why not dress it up a little with a not-too-sweet blood orange mojito?
Nothing wakes a juice up like a splash of citrus — it’s like drinking liquid sunshine. There are, of course, the old favorites: lemon tastes zesty and clean; lime adds a tart, tropical note; grapefruit adds refreshing acidity; and orange is sweet and bright. But you can branch out from these reliable standards with pomelo, Ugly fruit, kumquat, blood orange, Satsuma, clementine, tangerine, Key lime, Buddha’s hand, yuzu, and iyokan. Check out your local co-op, farmers market, and Asian, Latin, or Middle Eastern grocery stores for citrus fruits that you love but don’t often buy or that you’ve never tried before.
This simple curry dish comes together quickly and has a big payoff when it comes to flavor and presentation. Curry powder packs a punch in the spice department and it’s a weapon to keep on hard for a weeknight dinner when you want to throw together a dish that varies from your regular routine. This recipe has just the right balance of sweet and heat, and the sweet potatoes add so much flavor and text that you don’t notice the lack of any meat. (Just ask my husband!) – Kelsey Nixon
