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.

A Quick Chocolate “Pudding” for When You Need Dessert ASAP
Patience may be a virtue, but it’s not one of mine. At least not when it comes to chocolatey desserts. Sometimes—okay, pretty much all the time—a craving comes over me, and I just need sweets (checks watch) five minutes ago.
Enter Greek Yogurt Chocolate “Pudding.” It’s my never-fail solution for when I require sweets ASAP. This godsend of a dessert comes together in less than five minutes, which is often the high end of how long I feel I can wait before consuming chocolate. It’s a no-stove, one-bowl, zero-frills sort of operation, and it comes out perfectly every single time. Plus, I almost always have every single one of the ingredients already in my pantry and fridge—Greek yogurt, a splash of cream, vanilla extract, Dutch-processed cocoa powder, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.

A 5-Ingredient Chili That Tastes Like It Took All Day (But It Didn’t)
A Big Little Recipe has the smallest-possible ingredient list and big, BIG everything else: flavor, ideas, holy-cow factor. Psst: We don’t count water, salt, pepper, and certain fats (say, olive oil to dress greens or sauté onions), since we’re guessing you have those covered. This week, we’re proving that weeknight chili is possible.
There are lots of Big Little Recipes already out in the world. Ones that are big on flavor, little on ingredient lists. A Spanish tortilla, for example, has three ingredients: potatoes, onions, and eggs. A grilled cheese sandwich has two: bread and cheese. Roast chicken has one: uh, chicken. And shortbread has three: flour, sugar, and butter.
