A recipe from The Best 30-minute Recipe of Cook's Illustrated. If you can't find andouille, use tasso, chorizo or linguiça sausage. Serve with plenty of Tabasco. You can use your favorite Creole spice blend instead of Old Bay Seasoning.

Recipe #503695

For use in recipes that call for Asian fish sauce. Adapted from Cook's Illustrated Magazine, March/April 2013.

Recipe #499905

Got this in an email from America's Test Kitchen, from their new book "The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook"

Recipe #140322

This recipe makes an exotic, ethnic recipe (at least for Americans) easy to prepare at home without "special" ingredients or equipment. This recipe can be prepare through step 9, cooled, and refrigerated for up to 2 days, then warm the chicken and proceed with the recipe. Serve with couscous.

Recipe #480338

I love this soup. I like to have the vegetables cut medium it makes is hardier. But if you prefer smooth you can always chop smaller or puree. I also omit the bay leaf because I don't like bay leaf. I also use a ham hock from left over Easter or Christmas dinner.

Recipe #333665

The traditional accompaniments for Swedish meatballs are lingonberry preserves and Swedish Pickled Cucumbers. If you can’t find lingonberry preserves, cranberry preserves may be used. For a slightly less sweet dish, omit the brown sugar in the meatballs and reduce the brown sugar in the sauce to 2 teaspoons. A 12-inch slope-sided skillet can be used in place of the sauté pan—use 1 1/2 cups of oil to fry instead of 1 1/4 cups. The meatballs can be fried and then frozen for up to 2 weeks. To continue with the recipe, thaw the meatballs in the refrigerator overnight and proceed from step 3, using a clean pan. Serve the meatballs with mashed potatoes, boiled red potatoes, or egg noodles.

Recipe #345440

This is based on a recipe from Cook's Country. Do not use chops thinner than 1 inch. Chops and sauce can be refrigerated separately for up to 2 days. To serve, heat sauce and chops together over medium heat until chops are warmed through.

Recipe #328263

This is a favorite fall/winter recipe in my house. I modified it from a Cook's Illustrated recipe because no one (but me) likes Swiss Chard in my family. When browning the chicken, avoid overcrowding the pot--brown the thighs in two batches if all eight do not fit comfortably. Polenta, wide noodles or mashed potatoes go really well with this dish. Also, it has less calories than the Nutrition Facts calculate because you remove the skin after browning.

Recipe #190191

Well, actually it's America's Test Kitchen, but it's the same group. This is really delicious. I could eat 2 lbs of squash at one time....not sure I even need anything else at the meal. I didn't use any herb. You can use zucchini, summer squash or a combo of the two. I think a combination of the two is really pretty.

From the March/April 2002 issue of Cook's Illustrated. These are lovely!

Recipe #47209

This recipe appeared in Cook's Illustrated Magazine. What makes it unique is that, by using boned thigh meat and cooking in two pots, the preparation time for this classic dish is abbreviated to only 90 minutes.

Recipe #202052

These are a staple in Minnesota. The is a twist on grilling them instead of frying them. Thanks ATK.

Recipe #384548

Submitted from a Cooks Illustrated magazine with a slight adjustment. This a nice recipe for a luncheon, appetizer or as a side for a light supper. Recipe submitter will not recognize the 1 sheet of 9 1/2 "x 9" puff pastry needed for this recipe.

Recipe #436674

This is an easy recipe from "Cook's Illustrated Magazine". I love America's Test Kitchen recipes as they always work!

Recipe #349912

Fresh tasting pasta sauce using canned crushed tomatoes as described on America's Test Kitchens. Use either Muir Glenn or Tuttoroso crushed tomatoes because they use a lower processing temperature in the canning process and therefore are fresher tasting than other brands. Recipe Notes: According to the chefs, grating the onions instead of chopping allows them to carmelize more quickly. The butter is used because saturated fats helps the onions stay sweet. Olive oil contains unsaturated fats that react with an enzyme in the onion that can result in a bitter taste. Using crushed tomatoes is preferable to other forms. The chefs apparently expended a great deal of effort in developing this simple recipe so it is suggested that it be followed closely in order to acheive a fresh tasting sauce from canned tomatoes.

Recipe #429838

This is an exquisite soup. You won't believe the depth and complexity of the broth (especially w/o the use of alcohol or sour cream). The original recipe calls for 9 cups of chicken broth. My two containers only had 8, so that's all I used. It turned out so well, that's what is listed below. You can also substitute regular white mushrooms for the portobellos.

Recipe #435529

I love America's Test Kitchen because I always know it's going to be a superior recipe. This is no exception--this recipe is a keeper. I already had a cooked ham from last weekend so I used my ham bone and cooked it with the split peas and skipped the first step. I also cooked mine in a crock pot. Serving size is estimated.

Recipe #446568

From _America's Test Kitchen_ episode 908, "Soups of the Day." Salting the COOKING water makes the beans mealy, but salting the SOAKING water makes the skins more tender but also less likely to break. If you skip the soaking, you will need to cook the beans 45-50 minutes longer.

Recipe #367850

This was yummy! I wanted to try something new and decided on this and was glad I did. Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen seldom ever lets me down. I served this over large croutons I made from stale bread I had in the freezer by cutting it into large cubes and toasting/drying it out in the oven.

Recipe #407680

This is adapted from Cook's Illustrated...changing the ingredientss or adding additional ones is a great way to personalize it to your family's taste May garnish each serving with diced red onion and a dash of balsamic vinegar
