We Asked 25,000 Home Cooks for Their Trustiest Weeknight Dinners
This month, our Cookbook Club has been busy cooking through three books: our popular vote, Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking by Marcella Hazan; our moderator pick, POLPO: A Venetian Cookbook (Of Sorts) by Russell Norman; and our bonus year-long book, Six Seasons: A New Way With Vegetables. But in between all that pasta and pizza and Parmesan-smothered eggplant, members are also cooking all sorts of weeknight wonders.
Curious to learn from their vast wealth of cooking know-how, I asked the club to share their go-to, trustiest weeknight dinner recipes. They chimed in with hundreds of tried-and-true dishes—and we’re sharing 25 of our favorites to help inspire you:

10 Easy, Comforting Halloween Recipes for Dinner Tonight
Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, which is basically a crime to kids and kids-at-heart who look forward to that one night to dress up and go trick-or-treating after work school.
I’ve always made the same mistake every year—both as an adult and as a kid—of not eating anything substantial before the night of debauchery. This can catch up to you pretty quickly. So, it helps to have a reliable savory recipe or two on hand—a Tupperware of warm and cozy stew, or some crispy chicken thighs with white rice, a grilled cheesy sandwich maybe—protein and carbs, essentially, to ensure that you’re fully fueled for the night ahead.

Christina Tosi’s Fall Pound Cake Has a Few Delicious Tricks Up Its Sleeve
I’ve always adored the innovative recipes of genius-pastry chef Christina Tosi—and I could live off of the chocolate malt cake truffles she sells at Milk Bar. But it wasn’t until she casually used the phrase “bundt it up” in reference to changing a cake’s shape that I entered full-on swoon mode.
Tosi, whose new book All About Cake comes out next week on Oct. 23, coined this phrase in response to my question about adapting the bake time for her Burnt Miso Pound Cake. This delightful cake is one of many insanely delicious creations in All About Cake. It caught my eye the moment I flipped through the book, and frankly, I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I tried a bite. (Okay, 25 bites.)

It’s High Time to Praise Pork Butt
I was raised Jewish, which meant for most of my life I thought the only meat that anyone ever braised was brisket. My family’s go-to recipe requires, I don’t know, 87 ingredients and yields such a surplus of gravy that if the meat is ever dry—as brisket often is—you drown it accordingly and no one will ever know.
Then I moved to the South and met pork butt. Which, technically, isn’t a butt at all—it’s shoulder; literal pork butt is ham (a fun fact for your next dinner party!) Because pork butt is oh-so generously marbled with fat, it’s rich in flavor. It’s also cheap as heck. While brisket averages at $3.64/pound, pork butt is $1.79/pound.
