My favorite recipe for baba ghannouj - made with eggplant, tahini, and yogurt!:

French Apple Tart

Brimming with fanned apple slices, this French apple tart makes for a beautiful finale to any fall dinner. Peeling and slicing do take a bit of time, but the effort is worth the reward, and results in a most delectable and elegant dessert! // @alexandracooks

Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal

When this baked oatmeal is in the oven, the mixture separates into distinct layers, the nuts forming a crisp-like topping, the berries bobbing underneath, the creamy oats and custard forming the foundation. The steel cut oats, flavored with cinnamon and maple, remain firm and chewy, which along with the nuts offer the loveliest texture throughout. I could eat the whole pan in one sitting! // @alexandracooks

Ina Garten's Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper, the Brussels sprouts and the pancetta crisp up in unison, the fat from the pancetta flavoring the sprouts, whose crispy surfaces emerge glistening and caramelized. Served with balsamic vinegar, this is a Brussels sprouts recipe that even those who don't like sprouts will absolutely love! // @alexandracooks

The Best Grilled Cheese

This amazing recipe for a classic grilled cheese sandwich calls for crisping country white bread slices in a skillet on one side before topping them with cheese and sautéed shallots. The open-faced halves finish cooking in the oven before being pressed together into a traditional sandwich. This simple technique produces such a brilliant result: perfectly golden bread flanking perfectly melty cheese. // @alexandracooks

The Easiest (Best?) Ribs You Will Ever Make + Delicious Buttermilk Cornbread

This amazing baby back ribs recipe takes five minutes to prepare, but what emerges from the oven — a juice-filled package of falling-off-the-bone baby back ribs, perfectly crisped on the exterior — tastes like a day's worth of work toiling over a coal-filled bbq pit. Sweet. Smokey. Salty. Delicious. If these aren't the best ribs you've ever prepared, they're damn good ribs at the very least. // @alexandracooks
