    This is the best baked ziti I have ever tried...and I have tried a lot. This is from the March 2009 issue of Cook's Illustrated and has been thoroughly tested by them.

    Recipe #354885

    From the Cook's Illustrated Website: This recipe does not require a standing mixer, but when making the batter, be sure to whisk vigorously in step 2, then fold carefully in step 3. There should be no large pockets of flour in the finished batter, but small occasional sprays may remain. Do not overmix the batter. These muffins are great unadorned, but for an extra flourish, give them a dip in sugar by following one of the variations. Makes 12 muffins

    Recipe #318626

    I used to caramelize the onions on the stove top, but now I use this fantastic method. Finally, a way to make genuine French Onion Soup without all of the stirring. While it still takes quite some time, the onions are roasted in the oven. Sweet onions, such as Vidalia or Walla Walla, will make this recipe overly sweet, so use Yellow or Red, or a combo of both. Use broiler-safe crocks and keep the rim of the bowls 4 to 5 inches from the broiler to obtain a proper melting of the cheeses. Cooks Illustrated chefs prefer using Swanson Certified Organic Free Range Chicken Broth and Pacific Beef Broth, tho others will do fine as well. There is actually more flavor and depth in chicken broth than in beef and that is why they combine it with the beef broth. Much of the cooking time is passive...and the aroma makes the kitchen smell divine! For the best flavor, make the soup a day or 2 in advance, it also freezes well in 2 gallon freezer bags. Prep time includes the soup and the croutons. Cooking time is approximate, please use your judgment. I make this every Christmas Eve along with appetizers and those that missed Christmas Eve INSIST on having a bowl on Christmas morning! LOL It truly is the best French Onion Soup I have ever tasted. For those special occasions, try this one. Hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #344164

    From the Sept/Oct 2009 issue. Cooks Illustrated suggests that a non-premium vodka, such as Smirnoffs, is just fine. According to their tests, this ratio outperformed commercial vanilla extracts.

    Recipe #383722

    My sister-in-law told me about this version of green bean casserole. This is a great recipe made with fresh ingredients!

    Recipe #201819

    This is great if you're looking for the perfect recipe for traditional tuna salad. I got it from one of my favorite Cook's Illustrated cookbooks. The texture is perfect and not watery, which is one of the things I've always hated about some tuna salad recipes. The lemon juice also gives it a nice fresh flavor.

    Recipe #109872

    8 Reviews |  By AmyZoe

    This is from America's Test Kitchen--those folks who take all the guesswork out of your recipes for you on public television. They suggest for foolproof egg peeling to tap the egg all over against the counter, then roll it gently back and forth a few times on the counter. Begin peeling from the air pocket end. The shell should come off in spiral strips attached to the thin membrane. I used fresh squeezed lime juice in place of lemon juice. The lemon (lime works too) is the key ingredient to making this egg salad fantastic.

    Recipe #384887

    This is different from other Forfar Bridies (or Meat and Onion Turnovers) because it has lamb, beer and dry mustard, I use beef because my husband doesn't like lamb. I intend to use about 1/4 tsp Marmite instead of additional salt so that the filling is even more savory. I used Pillsbury premade crust and skipped the egg wash. I made two sizes of bridies: the 3-inch ones were the best IMO.irst anyway.

    Recipe #370004

    This recipe is from Cook's Illustrated Magazine. It, along with the Chocolate Chip cookies, are now expected of me at all family functions. Best I've had. I also find that even, though the portions are somewhat large, it's better to cut them in half aftward than make them smaller, or else they dry out.

    Recipe #150344

    This batter serves four perfectly for a light weekday breakfast. You may want to double the recipe for weekend pancake making, when appetites are larger. If you happen to be using salted butter or buttermilk, you may want to cut back a bit on the salt. If you don’t have any buttermilk, mix three-quarters cup of room temperature milk with one tablespoon of lemon juice and let it stand for five minutes. Substitute this “clabbered milk” for the three-quarters cup of buttermilk and one-quarter cup of milk in this recipe. Since this milk mixture is not as thick as buttermilk, the batter and resulting pancakes will not be as thick.

    Recipe #344774

    From Cook's Illustrated, Dec 2008. Use a chuck eye roast (RZ doesn't recognize this cut). Do not use hot, half-sharp or Spanish paprika; if you can, mail-order your sweet paprika and use a fresh container. Cook's Illustrated prefers The Spice House. The stew can be prepared up to 2 days ahead; do not add the optional sour cream until after reheating. Remove the hardened fat and add water to thin it. (I like to add about 1/2 lb of button mushrooms, quartered, with the carrots and beef, but that wasn't in the original CI recipe.)

    Recipe #329539

    From the Cook's Illustrated Website: It is important to work the dough as little as possible—work quickly and knead and fold the dough only the number of times called for. The butter should be frozen solid before grating. In hot or humid environments, chill the flour mixture and workbowls before use. While the recipe calls for 2 whole sticks of butter, only 10 tablespoons are actually used (see step 1). If fresh berries are unavailable, an equal amount of frozen berries (do not defrost) can be substituted. An equal amount of raspberries, blackberries, or strawberries can be used in place of the blueberries. Cut larger berries into 1/4- to 1/2-inch pieces before incorporating. Refrigerate or freeze leftover scones, wrapped in foil, in an airtight container. To serve, remove foil and place scones on a baking sheet in a 375-degree oven. Heat until warmed through and recrisped, 8 to 10 minutes if refrigerated, 16 to 20 minutes if frozen. See final step for information on making the scone dough in advance.

    Recipe #318620

    5 Reviews |  By blucoat

    These delicious, slender fries have a crisp exterior and a creamy interior, contain 1/3 less oil than traditional methods, and could not be easier to make. Recipe is from Cook's Illustrated (July, 2009) and the method is attributed to Michelin-starred French chef Jöel Robuchon. It skips the usual rinsing and soaking and you only need to fry once. You must use Yukon golds (Russets are too starchy).

    Recipe #415262

    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

    I have yet to try a recipe from the Food Gods that are Cook's Illustrated that I didn't care for and this one fails to disappoint as well. The method here requires slower cooking than the usual stir-fry in order to allow the aromatics to permeate the oil. It should be noted that my version had some ingredients substituted with what I could find: jalapenos for the Thai chilies (I know...what was I thinking?) and Italian basil for what C.I. recommends; "hot basil". I'm not even sure what that is, but apparently it has a "robust texture that can stand up to prolonged cooking". Anyway, it was still delicious with my substitutions! Times are estimated.

    Recipe #403690

    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

    From Cook's Illustrated Online.

    Recipe #344443

    I'll make this for my 84 year old dad who is a cream pie fan. The crust sounds delicious!

    Recipe #320303

    This is from The American Test Kitchen Family Cookbook, the same folks as Cook's Illustrated....I trust them implicitly. I haven't made this one yet.

    Recipe #373139

    Like grandma's..but better. Moist, delicious, and chocolatey
