Recipe of the Day

Feast your eyes on our daily dose of top-rated recipes and fantastic food photos.

April 1: Ice Cubes

"Thank you for your recipe. We make something very similar in Guatemala. Our version is called hielo, and instead of water we use agua."


April 2: Greek Quinoa Salad

"The first thing that this recipe taught me was the versatility of quinoa. Using the chicken broth to cook it in was just delicious."


April 3: Mousse au Chocolat

"I had never had chocolate mousse before, probably because I thought it would taste like pudding. Well, I was incredibly wrong. This is a light, airy cream with a deep, rich dark chocolate flavor. I love, love, love this!"


April 4: 20-Minute Fish Tacos with Coleslaw

"I rarely come back to write a review for anything, but this was one of the best meals I've made at home. Probably the best fish tacos I've had anywhere, and relatively healthy to boot."

-Doug M

April 5: Bocuse's Crème Brûlée

"The brûlée was perfection: beautifully flavored by the vanilla bean; sweet, creamy and rich with a nice hard crystalized candy topping."

-Baby Kato

April 6: Basketball Popcorn Balls

Two worlds collide. For National Popcorn Day, sit down and watch the NCAA semi-finals with these college basketball-themed popcorn balls.

April 7: Beer Margarita

"These were incredible! I'll never use bottled margarita mix again!"

-Lost InTime

April 8: Beefy Basketball Empanadas

Today marks the end of March Madness and the college basketball season. But guess what, it's also National Empanadas Day! Have at it, friends!

April 9: Stuffed Pork with Cilantro Lime Pesto

"The sauce was awesome! Wish I had quadrupled the recipe for it! I could drink the stuff!"


April 10: Mango Salsa

"You haven't lived until you have tried this as a dip with some fried plantain chips!"

-Art by Bambi

April 11: Creamy Macaroni Salad

"My sister made this recipe for a BBQ the other day and it was really good. Very much like the German deli macaroni salad I remember from way back when."


April 12: Chicken Marsala

"This was delicious and so easy to make. My husband did not believe I prepared this, he was so convinced I had picked it up from our favorite Italian restaurant."


April 13: Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

"This took me all of five minutes to put together (maybe less). Just delicious! The pan was clean the same night."


April 14: Mojito By the Pitcher

"I made two gallons to take on the river with us for our canoe trip and was passing it out. Everyone was asking how I made it. Wonderful."


April 15: Wicked Good Boston Cream Pie

On your mark, set, go! As this year's crop of runners trot along 26.2 miles of Massachusetts terrain, celebrate the world's oldest annual marathon with this signature dessert delicacy.

April 16: Olive Garden Stuffed Mushrooms

"Delicious! Just like the real thing! I have also made these with crab, which also worked very well."


April 17: Instant Pot Carnitas

"The only changes I made were to add a shotglass of tequila to the cooking liquid (flash of inspiration!)."

-Muffin Goddess

April 18: Chicken & Mushroom Risotto

"Of all the recipes for risotto, this has proved the best by far. Very comprehensive and the method can be adapted for other flavors such as spinach and tomato (great with lamb cutlets)."


April 19: Rice Onigiri Bento Box

Rice Ball Day? You can't make this stuff up... But you can make up these Angry Birds-inspired onigiri (rice balls) stuffed with crab meat.

April 20: Pineapple Coconut Jello Shots

"These were great! I took these to a tailgate party and they disappeared fast. The Malibu with the pineapple flavor was perfect."


April 21: Julia Child's Hollandaise Sauce

"Pay close attention and you will be fine. Easy on the heat; patience and the whisk are your friends."


April 22: Slow-Cooker Chicken Fajitas

"A great, no fuss way to make chicken fajitas. I serve them with Mexican rice and refried beans. A big favorite here."

-Marg CaymanDesigns

April 23: New York Cheesecake

"I've made this cheesecake at least 10 times and it turns out perfectly 100% of the time. The only "tweak" I've made is baking it in a water bath."


April 24: Beer-Battered Fish and Chips

"Great batter but don't forget the mushy peas and a large pickled onion on the side. That's what makes it real English fish and chips."


April 25: Biryani

"A great recipe! I followed some other reviewer's suggestions and made less rice than stated. I cooked about 4 cups of basmati rice and it was the perfect amount."

-Jonathan Melendez

April 26: Kosher Matzo Balls

"Outstanding. Having not grown up in a Jewish family I didn't have a bubbie to hand down her secrets, but with this recipe I found the fool-proof, perfect directions for matzo balls."


April 27: Sheet Pan Breakfast Bake

What's better than a bacon, egg and cheese on a bed of potatoes? Only having to clean one tray after you eat!

April 28: Blueberry Crumb Pie

"I love that it doesn't have tons of sugar; it really lets the taste of the fresh blueberries shine."


April 29: 15-Minute Shrimp Scampi

"I served it over whole wheat linguini with a side of green beans and warm bread sticks. My husband said he felt like he had ordered this at a fancy restaurant."


April 30: Quiche Lorraine

"I've never made quiche Lorraine before, so I was skeptical that it could be so easy and involve so few ingredients. It was so quick and simple to throw together, and the end result was fabulous."
