These Were Our Most Popular Recipes in January

Article Image

There’s something to be said for the wisdom of crowds. These 10 recipes were our most viewed for the month of January. From a simple vanilla whipped-cream frosting to weekend-project croissants, the list of comfort food classics is just as perfectly suited for a cold, blustery February. (Six more weeks of winter, folks!)

    Potato Gnocchi Recipe

    Gnocchi’s plump, pillowy texture and mild, delicate flavor make them perfect for rich, hearty sauces, but simple butter and cream-based sauces work well, too. In Italy, gnocchi are usually served after appetizers (antipasti) as a first course (or primo piatto), instead of pasta.

    Classic Tomato Soup Recipe

    Silky tomato soup is like the little black dress of soups. Unadorned and paired with a grilled cheese sandwich, it’s a comforting lunch. Dressed up with simple garnishes, it makes a sophisticated start to a dinner party.

    Crispy Smashed Roasted Potato Recipe

    With just three ingredients and a mostly make-ahead technique, these delicious potatoes are perfect for parties. Of course, you don’t have to have a party to make these. They’re just as good served with Sunday dinner as a side dish with roast chicken or meatloaf. And garnished with a bit of sour cream and chives, they make a nice starter.

    South Indian-Style Vegetable Curry Recipe

    This easy one-pot meatless main gets its complex flavor from a combination of spices including coriander, cumin, turmeric, cayenne, and cinnamon. The spices marry in a rich, flavorful sauce that has a comforting, belly-warming appeal.

    How To Make Classic Croissants

    Making your own croissants is not difficult; there's no special equipment or hard-to-find ingredients required. What is necessary is good technique. Once you understand the basics of creating multilayered dough like this, you're well on your way to wowing your friends with delicious croissants.

    Oven-Roasted Eggplant Recipe

    This simple eggplant preparation is one of the best—as easy and delicious as grilling. Roast small Italian eggplant as a versatile side dish and drizzle with lemon or your favorite vinaigrette. Or roast larger globe eggplant and use the flesh in other recipes like pastas, soups, or starters.
  • Recipe

    Classic French Onion Soup

    This ultimate version of the bistro classic is made with homemade beef broth and caramelized onions. Aged Gruyère is key to getting the traditional bubbling crust of cheese; it's rich, smooth, and melts easily.
  • Recipe

    Classic Maryland Crab Cakes Recipe

    This crab cake is the real deal—no fussy stuff, no flavor disguises. Just pure, sweet crab meat, and lots of it. You add in just enough egg and fresh bread crumbs to bind the crabmeat together. White sandwich bread yields the absolute best cakes—soft and flaky at the same time. Use just enough Old Bay seasoning to give a hint of its presence or it will overpower the crab.

    Vanilla Whipped-Cream Frosting Recipe

    Flavored whipped cream is an easy filling and topping for a gorgeous berry-stacked naked cake. Keep it simple with basic vanilla, or add cocoa, berries, coffee, or citrus to flavor it further. Finishing the whisking by hand will give you more control over the final thickness of the whipped cream.
  • Recipe

    Classic Manhattan Clam Chowder

    This chowder is a great change of pace from the creamy New England version. With its base of stock and tomatoes, rather than roux and cream, it’s lighter and a bit healthier. It’s still a chowder, though, because it has bacon and potatoes.
