Skillet-Toasted Gnocchi with Peas Recipe

Shake up your usual pasta night with this comforting, delicious dish. Potato gnocchi is a great alternative to pasta—and possibly even better when crisped up in a pan. Gnocchi, or Italian dumplings, can be made with potatoes, semolina, cornmeal, wheat flour, or similar ingredients. Toasting is the key to store-bought gnocchi. Although the package directions call for it to be boiled in salted water, sauté the gnocchi in a pan with a little butter and oil until they are golden brown on the…

Stuffed Tomatoes with Pesto Rice Recipe

Stuffed tomatoes are a delicious choice for a quick supper or even a mid-day luncheon. Hull the tomatoes as gently as possible. If you break the skin, they will over-soften while baking and could fall apart. Stir in browned ground beef, sausage, or shredded rotisserie chicken for extra heartiness. In order to quickly make this recipe, we suggest using store-bought pesto. If you happen to have a surplus of basil in your herb garden, however, try this easy recipe for homemade basil pesto…

Field Pea, Corn, and Bacon Salad Recipe

Once thought of as a chore, many people now jump at the chance to spend an afternoon on the back porch, shelling peas with their family. You can find many different varieties at the farmers’ market these days, including crowder peas, black-eyed peas, purple hulls, and lady peas. If you’re shopping for unshelled field peas, it can be hard to know how many pounds of pods to buy for a recipe calling for a specific amount.

With the right ingredients, mashed potatoes can become a standout star on the Thanksgiving table that your family will request ahead for next year. Thanks to buttermilk and crème fraîche, these incredibly rich, slightly tangy potatoes can stand on their own just fine, but we also love to top them with crispy bacon and scallions for even more flavor. The mashed potatoes can be made one day ahead; store covered in the refrigerator and…

Warm Asparagus, Radish, and New Potato Salad with Herb Dressing Recipe

Potato salad gets a makeover for the season with the addition of roasted asparagus and radishes. The tangy dressing can be made up to a week in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Roasted vegetables hold up better on a Easter buffet than a bowl of mixed greens—and they’re more interesting too. A tip from the Test Kitchen: If your potatoes are taking longer to roast, keep them going before adding the asparagus. A soft potato is better than a mushy asparagus.

For this bright, beautiful salad, use ready- to-eat peeled and steamed beets or roast your own. Easy Easter Recipes, Healthy Dinner Recipes, Easy Recipes, Easter Ideas, Brunch Recipes, Appetizer Recipes, Dessert Recipes, Desserts, Side Dishes For Chicken

You can use red or golden beets in this recipe, although we like the color contrast of red beets against the orange citrus. You can find many types of beets in the markets today: red, golden, Chioggia…
