At the start of each month, we'll be looking back at the most popular recipes from the previous one, stopping just short of 10 and giving you a helpful tip, technique, or drink instead.
It feels like just yesterday we were gracefully accepting the end of summer—and the beginning of September. I'll spare you the Earth, Wind, & Fire reference (please know that it's taking great personal restraint), but September, it feels like we hardly knew ye. Ye flew by.
The following nine recipes were the most popular kids throughout the month—and it's never too late to join the popular group (hint: make one tonight!). As usual, we've also included a "half": not quite a full recipe, but a very useful trick, tip, or cocktail that readers loved.
