We make soup, fry chicken and scorching salmon for dinner this week


These are our suggestions for dinner for the next seven days. The weekday recipes take less than an hour of mostly hands-off time, many cook much faster than that, but may need to be constantly stirred. In the weekends we like to try something different; recipes that cook slowly and slowly, projects that let us use new ingredients and techniques and menus to make a piece of cake. Join us every week for inspiration while eating.

Sunday: Orange-Braised Brisket

Here is the plan for a delicious comfort meal that serves eight to ten. Invite friends or neighbors, otherwise save the leftovers for another party tomorrow. It all starts with a lavish recipe book; the meat is stewed with both orange juice and orange liqueur. Serve with roasted cherry tomatoes and mushrooms and creamy grains. For dessert, you go out of a classic chocolate mousse and fresh raspberries, or you offer a bowl of cookies (try these carrot cake hybrids) and fruit. Get the Orange-Braised Brisket Recipe
