Lamb Loin Chops with Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

With the weather warming up, we’re already in the mood for summer cookouts, even if it’s still early spring. Why not get a head start with a recipe that features spring lamb and doesn’t require any grilling outdoors?

These lamb loin chops are first dusted with quatre épices (a special four-spice blend) and then pan-roasted on the stovetop. They’re earthy, full of flavor, and quick to cook, and they go beautifully with a simple salad of shaved Brussels sprouts tossed with a lively, herb-spiked dressing.

Recipe: Smoked Bacon Biscuits

We love sweet cookies, cakes, and brownies as much as the next person, but for those days when you want the comfort of something fresh out of the oven but have a hankering for something more savory, these biscuits are just the thing.

They have a smoky flavor from crisp bits of fried smoked bacon and a little spark of heat from a dash of mustard powder. They’re delicious all on their own, but we recommend serving them alongside soup or salad.

Recipe: Blood-Orange Roasted Endive

When most people think of winter cooking they picture slow-braised meats, roasted root vegetables, and big pots of soup simmering away slowly on a stove. While we love all of those, sometimes we want something a little lighter, even when it’s chilly.

One of our favorite winter recipes combines the warm, comforting appeal of braised endive with the exhilarating zing and lively colors of blood orange and fresh herbs. It all comes together to make a dish so good it’ll almost make you wish winter lasted all year long.
