Pumpkin Pie with crumble crust. All the articles about "how to make X without a recipe"...great ways to make something good with what you have or like best, relax into the cooking, experiment and still get good results. Hotline, sometimes for recipes, but more often for ideas, shared cooking experience, window into how other cooks think.

The Thai Red Curry Chicken Soup!!!! I make it every month and give it to people who are ill. One woman said she felt like she won the lottery on her first taste. It is so delish you will become addicted. I add bean sprouts when serving.

Some of my favorite winter dishes on this site include lastnightdinner's Hunter's Style Chicken https://food52.com/recipes/7821-hunter-s-style-chicken and the genius Northern Spy's Kale Salad https://food52.com/recipes/15584-northern-spy-s-kale-salad. I also love anotoniajames's Lentil and Sausage Soup https://food52.com/recipes/2348-lentil-and-sausage-soup-for-a-cold-winter-s-night

Take a look at my recipe box for some of my other all-time favorite Food52 recipes: https://food52.com/collections/359251-all-time-favorite-food-52-recipes
I agree that the Genius recipe column always has gems that are creative, original and extremely reliable. I also love Merrill's Cooking for Clara column for easy, quick, family oriented dishes.

Peach Tart by Amanda Hesser, https://food52.com/recipes/14217-peach-tart
Very forgiving and fool-proof. Has saved many a summer dessert I’ve had to make for big groups of people, usually in wet bathing suits and starving for dinner after coming back from the beach. Who had time to make a dessert before going to the beach. You can make this in no time. Ice cream is a great accompaniment. (It also works well in other seasons: apples, plums.)

The perfect shoes to go with this dress: this is the best hack for a tart pan, in case you don’t have one, or need to double or triple the recipe for a larger group. Works very well.
jane February 8, 2015
wow that was a great hack! also, i love this recipe. can't wait to try it. thank you!

This muhammara recipe:


Also, just made this tart (with the addition of bacon as a garnish) and I was incredibly pleased. Will certainly make it again.

This should be your go-to dinner party entree. Bonus is the rendered duck fat, which can be used for any number of delicious things, and the carcass, which should be used for homemade stock.
