Food52 is 10 years old! To celebrate a decade of all things kitchen and home, we’re rolling out our top recipes, tips, and stories for another victory lap, along with some of our very favorite memories over the years. Go on, take ‘em in!


When Food52 began its journey—as Amanda and Merrill write here—we were trying to build a business around a crowd-sourced cookbook. Building a community was not necessarily the plan. However, in a matter of months, maybe even weeks, that changed: You helped us figure out what Food52 would become.

The Friday Buzz: Epic Roadtrips, Quail Eggs, and Just Say Yes!

Welcome to The Friday Buzz, our roundup of all good things, good advice, good feelings. It’s the happy hour of blog posts! Up this fabulous week… Epic Roadtrips, Quail Eggs, Just Say Yes, and a few other things sprinkled in. 

Halloween is one of my most cherished times of the year. While some people bust out their Christmas playlists early, I’ve got my favorite Halloween playlist going on repeat. My house is decked out with all the fun potions, bats on the walls, creepy black drapes, black feathers in all my vases, and a black crow garland. All the pumpkins in the world line every last square inch of my home. I JUST LURVE IT SO MUCH!

Decorating for holidays has always been something I’ve enjoyed doing, and I’ve learned that what I love most is that just a few simple tweaks here and there can really turn something ordinary into something extraordinary. Ya feel me?

I think that’s one of the things I love most about working for this site. We strive continuously to bring simple yet extraordinary recipes into your homes. They all work so hard to produce high-quality recipes and I truly can say that I love every member of this team. We aren’t just co-workers… we’re all good friends!

And you know what? We consider each and every one of you to be friend, too. Seriously. So, this may be a little mushy-gushy, but thank you always for being here on our site and for making the Simply Recipes community such a lovely place to be.

OUR FAVORITES FROM THE WEEK

  • Not Giving Up Today – Just in case you needed a quick pick-me-up to get you through the day, Summer’s got you covered with this fab song.
  • Just say YES! Andy shared this clip with us and it totally reminded me of this movie.
  • Road Trip! With the changing of the weather, maybe it’s time for a road trip! Perhaps a 13,235 mile road trip that’ll give you 70° every single day?
  • Egg-cellent – Emma’s just putting this out there, in case you had a need to shell some quail eggs. 
  • Ravishing Risotto – Megan downs this Riced Cauliflower and Butternut Squash Risotto morning, noon, and night. Enjoy on its own, or as a side with chicken, sausage, or fish for dinner!
  • Midwest Made – Carrie’s been making her way through this cookbook by Shauna Sever and wonders if she should have been born in the Midwest because the recipes just hit her in all the right places.

MEANWHILE ON INSTAGRAM

Busy nights call for easy dinners and our IG readers are loving our Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken Chili! The only prep work needed for this is to dice the celery and onion. That’s it. If that isn’t easy enough, I don’t know what is!

READER COMMENT OF THE WEEK

Brandon’s family went cray-cray over our Oatmeal Buttermilk Pancakes! Yay! Here’s what he told us:

These were even better than I expected. Sounds of “mmmmmmmm” accompanied each bite. Definitely have some fresh berries with these pancakes to add some acidity. Utterly delicious and quite filling.

Pancakes in da house! Love the suggestion of using fresh berries! Thanks, Brandon!

Cheers to the weekend, friends. Hope it’s a good one for you!

Green beans go by a couple of nicknames, both of which tell you a lot about the vegetable. One is string bean, which refers to the string running along the seam (less noticeable in modern varieties). The other, snap bean, predicts what happens when you bend a bean in half. Snap!

We love this vegetable for its color (especially as the weather gets drearier), quick cooking time (a few minutes in boiling water is all you need), and next-level versatility. Here are 28 of our favorite recipes starring green beans.

How to Cook a Whole Head of Cauliflower in 5 Minutes

Welcome to Set It & Forget It, a new series about all the ways we rely on our slow cookers, Instant Pots, and ovens during the colder months. Whether it’s a long braise on the stove or a quick burst in the pressure cooker, one thing’s for sure: Comfort food means comfort cooking.


The regality of a whole-roasted cauliflower is indisputable. Whether it’s abcV’s garnish-bejeweled cauli-crown or Alon Shaya poached-then-baked centerpiece, roasting an entire head of cauliflower is one of the best ways to celebrate the cruciferous vegetable in all its glory.

Chicken is pretty much universally beloved—every part of it. The white meat is tender, lean, and mild; the dark meat a little richer and gamier; the wings and other bonier parts chock-full of the meat’s essence. In recipes, each has a purpose: chicken breasts offer a juicy blank canvas for powerful bursts of flavor to shine, like this smoky grilled rendition; thighs bring an unctuousness and meatiness anywhere they’re involved, and can stand up to braising (no less, in chocolate milk!) for extended periods to become helplessly tender. And the bones and skin and other tendony bits of chicken offer deep—well—chickeniness to stock; they also bring a whole lot of the protein, collagen, that helps make stock thick and luxurious (we’ll get into this topic another time).

But today, we’re not here to talk about the nuances of tender braised chicken thighs or a smoky, juicy grilled chicken breast. Today, we’re here to talk about chicken meatballs, aka chicken that’s been blown to smithereens. Specifically, we’re exploring Chicken & Broccoli Meatball Subs with Apple Giardiniera by Tyler Kord, chef–owner of No. 7 Restaurant and author of our most recent cookbook, Dynamite Chicken. Because it turns out that blown-to-smithereens chicken can have a whole lot of nuance, too.

Picture this: It’s the day after Thanksgiving, and your fridge is just filled to the brim. And, tucked away behind stacks of Thanksgiving leftovers, there are at least three half-empty cartons of heavy cream you threw in haphazardly amidst the dinner storm. Now, imagine that you face the remnants and their looming expiration dates, yet you have no desire to eat another dollop of whipped cream. The best news? You don’t have put that cream to waste—instead, you can make one of the 17 delicious recipes that follow. Heck, you might even start buying cream just so you can make them all, year-round!

1. Caramelized Cream Eggs from Ideas in Food

The easiest, most rewarding thing to do with cream (should we just end this list early?)? Fry eggs—or pork chops, carrots, onions, anything, really—in it. As the liquid cooks down in a skillet, it separates out into a layer of butterfat and buttermilk, steaming the eggs and caramelizing them at the same time.
