Don’t miss a winner! These Fine Cooking recipes all received near-unanimous acclaim from users in 2016, with multiple five-star reviews.

  • Recipe

    Buttermilk-Marinated Barbecued Chicken

    Slather this tender chicken with barbecue sauce before it comes off the grill for a quick take on slow-cooked barbecued chicken.

  • Recipe

    Seared Scallops with Citrus Quinoa, Herbs, and Almonds

    Infused with bright, aromatic flavors and full of wonderfully contrasting textures, this dish offers excitement with every bite. Steaming the quinoa after simmering gives it a drier, fluffier texture.

  • Recipe

    Braised Turkey Legs with Crisp Pancetta

    Turkey legs cook up deliciously tender when braised. Just before serving, the meat is garnished with crisped pancetta, which gives it the same satisfying crunch as crackly, roasted skin.

  • Recipe

    Caramelized Celery with Lentils

    The toasty flavor of caramelized celery pairs well with earthy lentils and an unusual finishing touch of dill, maple, and cider vinegar.

  • Recipe

    Pork Chops with Thyme-Scented Apples and Cheddar Polenta

    Pork and apple juices mingle beautifully and make a lovely sauce for the chops and cheesy polenta.

  • Recipe

    Key Lime and Coconut Yogurt Cake

    A Key lime syrup brushed over this incredibly tender pound cake makes for a delectably moist loaf, while coconut adds subtle flavor and texture without hogging the spotlight. If you can’t find fresh Key limes or bottled Key lime juice, use standard limes.

  • Recipe

    Apricot-and-Herb-Stuffed Leg of Lamb

    Rolling the lamb around the filling means you get some of those bright flavors in just about every bite. For the best flavor, stuff the lamb the day before you roast it. Garnish the platter of lamb with some of the same herbs from the filling, if you like.

  • Recipe

    Parsley and Caper Mashed Potatoes

    Briny capers add zip to rustic, buttery mashed potatoes. Serve them with Pork Tenderloin Provençal, or with grilled steak or chicken.

  • Recipe

    Carrot Cake with Mascarpone Frosting

    This carrot cake feels lighter than most, thanks to four thin layers, subtle spicing, and a not-too-sweet frosting made with mascarpone. Candied carrot curls and pecans on top make it look festive and add a bit of crunch.

  • Recipe

    Grilled Potato, Salmon, and Lentil Salad

    Here is a main-dish salad with flavor that builds with every bite. The potatoes are soaked in wine and broth, and they balance the rich salmon beautifully. But it’s the dreamy, creamy dressing that will have you swooning. Enjoy the dish alfresco with a chilled glass of wine, and feel all your worries slip away.

  • Recipe

    Chipotle Chicken and Corn Tostadas

    Charred corn and chicken have great summery flavors, but what really makes this tostada sing is the chipotle-lime cream sauce that holds everything on the shell. You can buy prepared tostada shells or make them yourself following the directions in the tip below.

  • Recipe

    Chicken Cutlets with Peach and Arugula Salad

    This riff on chicken Milanese replaces tomatoes with juicy peaches; their sweetness pairs well with the crisp breaded chicken and peppery greens.

  • Recipe

    Spaghetti with Shrimp and Lemon Chard

    Silken Swiss chard replaces spinach in this delicious riff on shrimp Florentine. A good amount of lemon, in zest and juice forms, keeps things bright, while a bit of cream ties everything together.
