Dulce de Leche Brownies - David Lebovitz

Dulce de Leche Brownies

Adapted from The Sweet Life in Paris You can buy dulce de leche in well-stocked supermarkets, as well as stores that carry multicultural foods. You can also make it yourself using my Dulce de Leche recipe here.

We set out to make a sour cream doughnut recipe, we really did. We tried and we tried, and when it wasn’t working, we switched to Greek yogurt. Adding yogurt to the batter for these cake doughnuts made them light, tangy, and rich, and gave us a dough that was easy to work with. Have we all been calling them yo-nuts ever since? Yes—and we’d like it if you did too.

When I posted a photo of this very modest-looking cake on Instagram, I was blown away by the response. Honestly, it didn’t look like much—a generic yellow cake with a golden top. I think just the very notion of putting Campari and olive oil in a cake is what made people stop and “like” it. And it is a pretty terrific flavor combination—the citrusy bittersweet character of the Campari goes really well with the fragrant olive oil, to which I also add melted butter for richness as well as lots…

Roasted Pecan and Acorn Squash Soup Recipe on Food52

The roasted pecans added a wonderfully rich and subtle toasted element to this soup, and honey enhances the flavor of the pecans and pairs incredibly well with the nutty roasted acorn squash. A dash of chipotle powder finishes it off with a kick, creating one of the richest, most flavorful soups you'll ever have.

In this vegan version of the traditional Oaxacan condiment known as aciento from Bricia Lopez's family's restaurant Guelaguetza, you won't taste garlic or sunflower seeds specifically, but instead a deeply savory spread that replaces the meaty flavor of the original surprisingly well—all with plant-based ingredients (that you won't need to do all that much to). Traditionally, aciento is a toasty chicharrón spread used throughout Oaxacan cuisine, particularly on tlayudas (Oaxacan "pizza") and…

Parsnip Confit with Pickled Currants

Welcome to root vegetables reinvented. Sturdy parsnips soften in a warm bath of olive oil, then get seared and bejeweled with pickled currants. It’s hard to know if a parsnip will have a woody core, but generally speaking, small ones are tender throughout. Worst case scenario? Trim the tough centers before cooking.

This delicate, brothy grain soup manages to be comforting and fortifying—but without requiring a nap afterward. If you have really good homemade stock on hand, you can use it instead of the water called for here; the soup will only benefit from the addition. But even if you don’t, the flavors will get richer and more concentrated the longer it sits, which means it’s a great make-ahead recipe for a weekday lunch or dinner.

This is a brighter, lighter blueberry pie than you're used to, one that keeps all the texture and integrity of blueberries intact. You can use your go-to pie crust -- just roll out a single crust and blind bake it -- or I've included Beranbaum's recipe, which is excellent, and has all sorts of clever tricks. You can also adapt her dough to the food processor if you're feeling lazy. Adapted slightly from The Pie and Pastry Bible (Scribner, 1998).
