Lamb Chops With Dates, Feta, Sumac and Tahini

These tender little lamb rib chops have a deep, complex flavor thanks to a marinade imbued with cumin and Aleppo pepper. After a brief soak, they get quickly seared, then served with a garlicky tahini-yogurt sauce and a tangy herb salad filled with feta cheese and sweet dates. It’s a festive, colorful, company-worthy main course that comes together fast. (Photo: Andrew Scrivani for NYT)

Chicken Breasts With Tomatoes and Capers

This recipe was originally developed by Pierre Franey in 1991 for the 60-Minute Gourmet column, a weekly feature dedicated to Times-worthy dishes that were easy, quick and inexpensive. This recipe fit the bill perfectly, and it still does. Just sauté the chicken breasts until they are lightly browned. Then add shallots and garlic, tarragon, tomatoes, vinegar, capers, white wine and tomato paste. Stir well and cook for about 9 minutes more. That's it. (Photo: Jim Wilson/The New York Times)

Broccoli Salad With Cheddar and Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

Broccoli salads are a dime a dozen, but this one, which is adapted from Ashley Christensen's cookbook, "Poole's: Recipes from a Modern Diner," is a game-changing celebration of flavors, colors and textures: broccoli, toasted pecans and red grapes are cloaked in a warm bacon-scallion vinaigrette, then sprinkled with small chunks of sharp white Cheddar.

Sticky Toffee Whole-Wheat Date Cake

This cake is a showstopper that a baker with rudimentary skills could pull off. The topping is a toffee glaze made with brown sugar, agave, butter and sea salt; you pour half of it over the cake while still hot so that it saturates the cake, giving it a puddinglike consistency, then wait before using the rest as a high-gloss frosting you sprinkle with sea salt. Seemingly complicated, but surprisingly simple. (Photo: Jim Wilson/NYT)

Peanut Butter Cookies

This version of the childhood favorite came from Christopher Kimball, formerly the publisher and editor of Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country magazines Mr Kimball calls for extra crunchy peanut butter here, plus a full cup of roasted salted peanuts, which results in a super crunchy and delightfully salty-sweet treat.

Breton Tuna and White Bean Gratin

Like a tuna casserole given a makeover, this pantry dinner is modern, sleek and a whole lot more elegant than anything your grandmother used to serve. The key is using really good-quality tuna, preferably the kind packed in extra-virgin olive oil and imported from Italy or Spain. If you can find a large 7-ounce can, use that.

Rhubarb Upside-Down Cake

Take advantage of rhubarb season with this easy dessert. Baked and unmolded, this cake resembles a pale pink mosaic atop velvet-crumbed and vanilla-infused cake. The rhubarb, which you’ll add in raw, is tangy and tender, firm enough to give you something to chew over. It’s an easy half-hour of prep and another hour and change in the oven, ample time for a light supper, anticipation of dessert hanging in the spring air.

Lemon and Garlic Chicken With Mushrooms

In this Provençal rendition of pan-cooked chicken breasts, the mushrooms take on and added dimension of flavor as they deglaze the pan with the help of one of their favorite partners, dry white wine. (Photo: Andrew Scrivani for The New York Times)
