Make-Ahead Chicken Enchiladas with Red Sauce

baked chicken enchiladas with red sauce

  When I subscribed to the paper version of Cook’s Illustrated this year (I used some of my birthday money!), I got a bonus in the form of a free issue of Cook’s Country. In that issue was a recipe for low-fat enchiladas, covered in a sauce made with chipotles in adobo sauce, and topped […]

Easy Homemade Not-Fried Fish Tacos

ATK fish tacos

I’ve tried some fish taco recipes in the past, and I’ve always been put off by the deep-frying required. Deep-frying is messy and stinky. And fish is stinky too.

No-Knead Batter Rolls

how to make no knead rolls

When I posted the no-knead English Muffin batter bread recipe last week, I was poking thru my archives to find my recipe for no-knead batter rolls, and much to my surprise, I realized I never posted it. Weird. I suppose it’s possible that it’s just hiding super well, skulking around in the shadows of the […]
