Whitefish Salad
Rating: Unrated
New!
Smoked whitefish salad is a staple in many Jewish delis and bagel shops, and while excellent purchased versions abound, making your own is a snap. Our recipe is creamy (we add both mayonnaise and crème fraîche) and lightly smoky with a lemony tang and plenty of fresh dill. We also add dill pickle for a hit of acidity and crunch. We like to spread the salad on pumpernickel triangles or bagel chips and top it with thin slices of cucumber, but spreading it on bagels or scooping it over a bed of crunchy lettuce never gets old. Slideshow: More Whitefish Recipes

Baked steaks with mushrooms in a creamy gravy are perfect for a cozy night in. Cube steaks are usually cut from the top round or top sirloin and pounded to help tenderize them. Slideshow: More Steak Recipes 
Bacon Jam

Brightened by apple cider vinegar and tomatoes, our bacon jam adds sweet, tart and smoky flavors to countless dishes. We like this condiment spread on toast and served with an egg, layered into a grilled cheese sandwich or spooned on goat-cheese topped crostini. Slideshow: More Jam Recipes 
Chermoula
Rating: Unrated
1
A bright, garlicky herb sauce from North Africa, chermoula is often used as a marinade or an accompaniment for grilled seafood, but, in fact, it's an endlessly versatile condiment. Serve it with roasted leg of lamb, stir it into couscous, slather it on roasted cauliflower, or toss it with chickpeas and shredded carrots for a quick salad. We like the subtle, bitter taste of saffron here, but it can be omitted.
Pumpkin ale and pumpkin pie spice dial up the flavor in this beer bread, which is studded with toasted pumpkin seeds. No pumpkin pie spice? Or don’t care for it? Use 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder for a delicious and slightly spicy bread instead. Slideshow: More Bread and Biscuit Recipes

Warm, hearty and deeply comforting, this kidney bean soup gets a nice kick from crushed red pepper and brightness from a bit of mustard.

Kolache, fluffy rounds of dough with sweet or savory fillings, are originally from Central Europe, but they’re popular in Texas, too. Autumn Stanford of the Brooklyn Kolache Company suggests keeping the dough on the sticky side when you mix it. The dough will become less tacky as it rises, and the extra moisture will keep the pastry from becoming too dry. Slideshow: More Pastry Recipes

Mochi Ice Cream

Once you source the sweet glutinous rice flour, making mochi, the chewy Japanese rice cake, couldn’t be simpler. Here, we use a microwave to make mochi flavored with matcha (a powdered green tea). We then wrap the matcha around scoops of green tea ice cream. Slideshow: More Ice Cream Recipes

Pastillas
Rating: Unrated
New!
Pastillas, sometimes called pastillas de leche, are a milky, chewy candy from the Philippines. Some recipes call for reducing fresh milk with cornstarch until it is very thick. Using a popular variation on this technique, we mix nonfat dry milk with sweetened condensed milk to make the thick, sticky dough in just minutes. We also added salt, vanilla, and ground cinnamon to our pastillas dough to complement the candy's smooth, milky flavor.

We like the tart heat of Aleppo pepper in this gluten-free spin on shrimp creole. If you can't find Aleppo pepper, a combination of 1/2 teaspoon of sweet paprika and 1/4 teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper makes a good substitute. Related: More Shrimp Recipes 
Rye Bread Dip

For this dip, a rye bread boule is hollowed out and filled with a creamy, herb-packed dip. Cut the interior into chunks for dipping and serve the rye bread dip with your favorite crudités. (We like our dip with slices of red pepper, cucumber and fennel.) If you can’t find a rye boule, a round loaf of crusty sourdough bread works well too. Slideshow: More Dip Recipes
