Dinner Rush! “Shore Dinner” Mussels

If you’ve spent any time on a New England beach during the summer season, you’ve likely heard of — or even been to — a “shore dinner.” Along the lines of clam bakes and oyster roasts, alfresco shore dinners are when a group of people get together on the beach, start a campfire and make […]

Dinner Rush! Italian Patty Melts

Is 30 minutes too long to wait for a burger? Not if that burger is a patty melt. There’s a reason this beauty is a staple of diner menus from coast to coast. If a grilled cheese sandwich and a hamburger had a baby with French onion soup-like tendencies, this is what the kid would […]

Dinner Rush! Greek Meatballs with Lemon-Dill Tzatziki

The clean, fresh flavors of a Greek sandwich — lemon, tomato, cucumber, onion and spiced meat wrapped in flatbread — are so ubiquitous that they can feel somewhat cliched, but the authentic gyro experience is a thing of true beauty. In a perfect world, one would find an amazing Greek restaurant that cooks the meat […]

Dinner Rush! Gin + Tonic Salmon BLTs

Cooking Channel has gone mash-up crazy in the best way possible. Caesar salad is commingling with pizza. Doughnuts are adorning icebox cakes. Would a rose by any other name taste as sweet as lasagna meatloaf? If you’re still looking to deviate from the norm, here’s one more for you to try: the BLT meets a […]

Dinner Rush! Farro + Red Lentils with Tahini-Soy Vinaigrette

Beef stews, roast chickens, tuna casseroles — it’s all good in moderation, but it can get to be too much. I’m not saying to swear it off; I’m saying to lighten up one night this week. Sometimes just eating clean and light food can be the jump-start we need to get out of the slump […]

Dinner Rush! Char Siu BBQ Pork + Sesame-Roasted Broccoli

It’s pronounced “shar-see,” and, yes, it’ll change your life. Char siu is a popular Chinese version of barbecued meat, most typically pork nowadays. The tender cut of meat is slow-roasted with a sauce made of hoisin, five-spice powder, soy sauce and Shaoxing wine (a popular Chinese rice wine). Many of us are familiar with char […]

Dinner Rush! One-Dish Baked Chicken + Vegetables

In many ways, a one-dish meal is both the ultimate challenge and the ultimate reward. Many promised “one-dish dinners” actually yield a full sink of soiled pots. Can a successful meal truly be created from so little dishwashing? Absolutely. Not only is this dish delicious and easy, it’s stunning served directly from oven to table. […]

Dinner Rush! Steak Sandwiches with Tomato Jam + Watercress

Look, I know what you’re thinking. “Tomato jam? In February?” Yes, tomato jam in February. February is, in fact, the perfect time to be enjoying this spread of the gods. Being that they’re out of season in most of the U.S. right now, savoring the joy of the tomato usually means eating yellow-greenish slices of […]

Dinner Rush! Ginger Pork Patties with Miso Mayo + Oven Fries

A beautiful thing happens when two culinary superpowers collide. When the savory bliss of miso goes head-to-head with the creamy indulgence of mayonnaise, magic happens. Magic, my friends, that merits repeat dips from some crispy oven fries. While I can hardly lay claim to the invention of miso mayo, singing its high praises has become […]

Dinner Rush! Rigatoni with Meat Sauce and Peas

There’s no sense in even trying to deny the allure of rigatoni. You love it, you know you love it and there’s no shame in admitting it. Those thick tubes of perfectly cooked pasta, harboring secret pockets of saucy delight. Don’t even try to wipe the drool off your keyboard. Resistance is futile. Seriously, though, […]
