This Stir-Fry Rice Bowl—a quick and easy recipe inspired by Korean bibimbap—is one of my go-tos on weeknights. Sometimes I swap in red peppers, snow peas or baby bok choy, and I always load it up with extra chili garlic sauce. The poached egg on top creates a creamy sauce when broken—so delicious!

I made this for my dad’s birthday and it was hands-down the best cake I ever made. The sponge was light and super flavorful. The frosting was creamy and smooth—but hardened up a little bit in the fridge. I added a berry filling between the layers which was tasty, too. PLUS, it was pretty simple to make. Definitely a winner!

I tried this contest-winning chicken noodle soup a few months back when I wasn’t feeling well, and it was SO good. It’s not your typical chicken noodle recipe, it’s really creamy and filling. I ate all of the leftovers because I was so in love with it.

I’m a real sucker for raspberries and Moscow mules, so it’s pretty unsurprising I love this cake so much. If you can get your hands on Crabbie’s Scottish Raspberry Ginger Beer, then you should absolutely bake it. It’s springy and so, so moist.

I’m a sucker for this Lovely Lemon Cheesecake. It’s incredibly easy for such a sophisticated result. The cinnamon in the graham cracker crust was a personal revelation. Since I tried this, I’ve never made a straight graham crust without adding a complementary spice.

I’ve been wild about this salad since the day we tested it. It’s perfect as a side for family dinners (I brought a doubled recipe to Thanksgiving—no leftovers!) or as a meal-prepped lunch. I add cooked chicken, goat cheese and/or extra toasted pecans to make it a main.

This is by far my favorite Taste of Home recipe. It’s super easy to make and you can have it for any occasion. Fruity Jell-O with a creamy salty crunch—it’s amazing!

It’s hard to choose a favorite, but this is my top dinner recipe. This chicken thigh dish is super flavorful, really easy to make and super juicy because it uses chicken thighs.
