Spicy Cajun Hot Wings
This recipe combines two of my favorite ingredients: Frank's RedHot and Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning. Great to serve during any sports-watching get-together, they taste even better with a cooling, savory blue cheese or ranch dip. Click here to see 7 Creative Ways to Make Chicken Wings.

Edamame & Wild Rice Bites with Roasted Carrot Ginger Dressing
This little salad is bursting with flavor and goodness. The mushroom & rice bites are mellow and make you smile, the roasted carrot ginger dressing is tangy and entertaining. It’s vegan and so satisfying that you could easily serve it to you average meat-eater and I don’t even think they would notice the absence of animal on the plate. The hardest part about making this dish was coming up with a name for those delicious bites. There are so many yummy things going on, I just wanted to list all the ingredients. I landed on something pretty conservative and descriptive but ‘mushaboom bites’, ‘wild vegan ballz’ and ‘chia protein amazeballs’ were all considered. Don’t consider making this dish though, just make it, you’ll love it!

Lobster Eggs Benedict
Perhaps perfectly poached eggs and hollandaise might not seem exciting to some people anymore, but these eggs Benedict cannot be passed up. Why? Well, because there's lobster! (And some wonderful brioche doesn't hurt either.) Serve these with a side of roasted potatoes or vegetables. For help with cooking the lobster, or anything lobster-related, click here to see The Ultimate Lobster Bible. See all lobster recipes. Click here to see the Mother's Day Brunch in Bed story.

Negima
Restaurants in Japan often specialize in one kind of cooking, such as yakitori, soba, or tempura. Yakitori literally means "grilled chicken," but essentially a yakitori shop or stand will slow grill all sorts of skewered meats. These meats are flavored with salt, soy sauce-based brushing marinade, or even miso thinned with sake. I prefer the salt because it does not overpower the natural flavor of the chicken and leeks. See all chicken recipes. Click here to see Japanese Farm Food at Its Finest.

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes
No one can resist the beauty of a cupcake, but sometimes you're not in the mood for that much sweetness. These cupcakes provide the perfect antidote by adding a tart zing to a plain old cupcake. A lot of "lemon meringue cupcakes" have you add lemon curd in the middle. However, I believe that curd is time-consuming and doesn't pack enough lemony punch. As a substitute, here we have added actual lemons that are already broiled a bit to caramelize them. It's rare when something is easier and tastes better! If you have a favorite plain cupcake recipe, you can always just stick to that as your base, but make sure to put in a bit of lemon juice to bring it all together. Click here to see Cupcakes Galore.

Today’s baked pasta recipe is one of my mum’s signature dishes. The original recipe came from an Egyptian friend mum met while dad was working abroad, but mum changed and added so much to the recipe (and she is still adding to it and changing it) that I think the recipe I am sharing today would probably have little to do with that original. The secret to this baked pasta recipe is the sauce. It is a modified béchamel sauce that takes the recipe to the next level. Not only is it pink as opposed to the traditional white but also it is so rich and full of flavor that you will want to eat it with a spoon. See all pasta recipes.

Lydia Shire, the esteemed Boston-based chef whose Scampo and Towne Stove & Spirits are two of Beantown's best and most original restaurants, loves NFL football as much as she loves full-flavored food. "Yesterday was the start of NFL Wild Card Weekend," she wrote to me in early January. "You know what a fan I am. I took yesterday off to watch and cooked something I probably have not cooked in 25 years — MEATLOAF!!! Yes, I was craving meatloaf (no fancy restaurant food here). It was so damn good. I wrote out the recipe for friends who came over." With little prodding, Shire agreed to share it with us. If you're looking for something a little more complex (and unexpected) than chili and wings for your Super Bowl viewing party — or if you just like good meatloaf, any time at all — you'll love Shire's take on this American classic.

If you're in a pinch for time and don't want to preheat your oven, make a pizza on the stove in less than five minutes.  The bottom crust is crunchy and the top is toasted for a just a minute under the broiler to give it that wood-fired oven feel - simple and fast.

"Creamy chicken stew and biscuits baked together is the ideal meal in a pot. F&W’s Grace Parisi’s version is unforgettable: The gravy is boldly spiced, and the biscuits are unbelievably moist and tender thanks to chicken stock and sour cream in the batter." — Food & Wine magazine; recipe contributed by Grace Parisi

Bhindi Masala Appetizers
If you didn't grow up cooking Indian food, then it's sometimes a daunting cuisine to take on. But after living in India for a year I discovered that there are basics even non-Indians can master. The first secret is in cooking for a long time — Indian cuisine is all about developing the flavors and if you want a quick fix, then you shouldn't even start. The second secret is proper spices — don't take out ground cumin that's been sitting in your cabinet for months and don't buy a garam masala from a generic brand. Buy fresh cumin seeds, fresh coriander, and find a real spice market for an original garam masala blend. This okra appetizer is a primer for anyone who wants to try cooking Indian food but is a bit hesitant. There's nothing complicated; you just have to leave time for simmering. Take it from a white girl who loves Indian food: You can do it! Click here to see 5 Naan-Inspired Recipes.
