Food & Wine's senior recipe developer, Grace Parisi, is a Test Kitchen superstar. In this series, she shares some of her favorite recipes to make right now.

What's the difference between a crisp and crumble? And what the hell are Buckles, Grunts and Bettys, exactly? Maybe this clears it up? Whatever the case may be, I don't think this recipe's title is entirely accurate, because pound cake is not a traditional baked-fruit topping. But it is fast, easy and entirely delicious. Here, toasted, sugared cubes of pound cake (lemon-yogurt might just be the perfect choice) cover a steaming, bubbling dish of tart blueberries. Plums, nectarines, peaches, berries, rhubarb, pears, etc., would also do terrifically, especially when served with ginger, coconut, cinnamon or plain old vanilla ice cream. SEE RECIPE »

F&W Executive Food Editor Tina Ujlaki applies her incredible cooking knowledge to explaining what to do with a variety of interesting ingredients.

I’ve been a huge fan of Maya Kaimal’s ever since we featured her recipes years ago (one of my favorites: is her Black Pepper Chicken Curry). Luckily for me, she started a sauce company, and now, when I want an Indian quick-fix, I just grab a jar of her Tikka Masala Simmer Sauce from the fridge or the Butter Masala Sauce from my pantry. Sometimes I add chicken or shrimp, and sometimes just vegetables with or without cubes of firm tofu (as a stand-in for paneer). I warm up naan, set out plain yogurt and mango or tomato chutney and dinner is ready in less time than it would take to wait for takeout. The full line of sauces is available at supermarkets and health food stores and online at mayakaimal.com.

Best Tailgate Drinks for Fall

Forget the field, the real action during football season is in the parking lots where die-hard fans of barbecue and other pregame foods gather to eat and drink before the game. Many tailgate enthusiasts own tricked-out grills, portable smokers and outdoor living room setups with televisions that put most people’s home sets to shame—like these dedicated superfans. But when it comes to beverages, a cooler full of generic six-packs is sadly common. Tailgaters who pay as much attention to drinks as they do to chili warrant legend status. Tailgate-perfect cocktails, wine and beer >
