Sour Cherry Pierogies from Pierogi Love: New Takes on an Old-World Comfort Food

by Casey Barber "Pierogi dough recipes are like red sauce recipes (or pot roast recipes, or spanakopita recipes, or latke recipes)—if it's been passed down through generations of family cooks, every single version is going to be a little different from someone else's. It's like playing recipe telephone, basically. Without a Polish babcia to show me the One True Way, I never had the burden of tradition weighing upon me when I started experimenting with various pierogi doughs, and this is what I've come up with as my go-to recipe."

The Bar Cart: Smoky Micheladas

by Casey Barber "It's an ideal make-ahead drink for picnics and outdoor gatherings—just mix it in a lidded container like a half-gallon mason jar and store in the fridge until you're ready to pack up and go. A tiny hit of chipotle powder is all you need to turn these into smoky micheladas; adjust to your taste or try out smoked paprika for a slightly different tack."

Mango Avocado Fish Tacos: The First Lesson in Learning To Love Fish

by Rebecca Peters-Golden "The second I got wise to mango avocado salsa (yes, I know, way late to the party, but so glad I showed up), my fish tacos became magic. When I made the first batch I was struck, before I ever tasted them, by how gorgeous they were: a riot of red, yellow, green, and orange that I couldn't wait to eat. And, yes, they were everything I hoped they would be ....more

Will Fly For Fries: Duckfat, Portland, Maine

by Casey Barber "Duckfat calls itself a sandwich shop, but I'd expand the definition a bit to think of it as an upscale diner. The sandwiches, as wonderful as they are, are only part of the attraction—menu items like "duck in a jar" with rhubarb and foie gras, creamy tomato-fennel soup with grilled cheese croutons, or creamsicle milkshakes made with scoops from Gelato Fiasco down the street, will force serious decisions on the final food tally."

by Casey Barber "In addition to When Harry Met Sally, You've Got Mail and even Sleepless in Seattle share that sincere spirit. And as I walk around New York, my mind flickers like a film reel as I remember key moments from all these movies—the moment that 'someone is staring at you in Personal Growth' or seeing a butterfly on the subway that's likely on its way to Bloomingdale's."

Make-Ahead Meals for the Busy Bon Vivant: Curried Chicken Salad

by Rebecca Peters-Golden "I especially love combining the brininess of pickles, the heat of spice, and the mellow sweetness of dried fruits in protein-packed salads that will keep in the fridge all week. As the salads sit, their flavors intensify, rewarding you for eating leftovers or bringing your lunch to work. My two favorites to keep in the fridge are my ...more

The Bar Cart: The Red Alert! Mezcal and Beet Margarita

by Casey Barber "Obviously switching out your margarita's usual tequila for mezcal is a stellar starting point, and highly recommended for summer porch drinking (I've already tested it on your behalf to make sure it works; you're welcome). But to really enhance mezcal's prominent smokiness, you can make one more little substitution. Don't beet me up for suggesting—nay, demanding—that a batch of beet simple syrup come into play."
