A tenderloin gets an assist from dark brown sugar, paprika

As its name implies, the tenderloin is one of the most tender cuts of pork, and comes from the full loin. It’s mild in flavor and takes well to rubs, marinades and sauces. Tenderloins range in weight from 10 ounces to 1 1/2 pounds. I prefer the smaller 10-12 ounce tenderloins and look for those when I am shopping for meat.

    Fruit pies, ice cream, and fresh berry salads are summer staples, and you’ll never catch us turning any of those down. But even in the summer, the occasion may arise where you want to crank it up a notch. Whether it’s a bridal shower, anniversary party, or late-night after-party, a dessert buffet can be a fun, easy way to mark a special occasion.

    Let’s get this out of the way early: you don’t need a Passover brisket recipe, because you will never make one that is better than your grandmother’s, and you wouldn’t even try.

    Is there any more unsung hero in the kitchen than the humble onion, or its equally unheralded BFF, the garlic clove?

    The Pinterest-popularized “mug food” is a dish made by mixing ingredients in a coffee mug and zapping it to “bake.” The mug brownie is the recipe that started it all; from there, mug enthusiasts moved to mug pumpkin pie, mug doughnuts and mug cheesecake (ew).

    My mom was a wannabe urban farmer long before it was cool. Living in the city limits didn’t stop us from growing our own veggies in a backyard garden that flanked a huge handmade chicken coop, where we raised hens for eggs. (I’ll take this opportunity to apologize to our neighbors, especially for the year we accidentally acquired a rooster, and the year after when we ended up with 38 clucking egg-layers as a result of said rooster.)

    Other than a nice soak in a lemony marinade, this chicken and pepper dish requires only a handful of ingredients, little skill and a small commitment of time by the fire. The result is colorful and gorgeous and flavorful and very healthful to boot.

    Flavorful teas can be brewed from a great variety of herbs, flowers, fruits, spices and roots taken fresh from the garden. These generally are stronger and more refreshing than the dried packages of leaves stored for long periods on grocer’s shelves.

    These peppery French butter cookies are a grown-up’s version of a milk chocolate bunny. Sandy in texture, with the flavor of chocolate shortbread, they melt in your mouth, with a salty finish that’s a terrific contrast to the sable’s sweetness.

    PRIPYAT, Ukraine — A bulletin board in the Ukrainian town of Pripyat still bears an edition of the Sovietsky Patriot newspaper, dated three days before the nuclear explosion that turned the city into one of the world’s most baleful ghost towns.
