Ring in the New Year with our all-time best family recipes to savor and share around the dinner table. We’re bringing back nine of our ultimate “lost classics,” timeless reader recipes picked from our decades-old archives that we thought deserved a second glance. Familiar dishes, such as Savannah Red Rice and Beef Stew, sit side by side with less-familiar, yet equally comforting dishes, like Capitol Hill Bean Soup and Harry Young’s Burgoo. We hope these family-style dishes bring back heartwarming recollections of meals past or help you make delicious new memories.
With the help of Rick Bragg, we dub a Cajun classic “the most perfect sandwich in the world,” and explain why the Po’boy is a well-deserving icon in the Southern cooking world. You can warm up your winter nights with our fast, fresh, good-for-you supper recipes bursting with flavor, but done on a lighter note. From easy sheet pan dinners to hearty ragu, we’ve got your weeknights covered. We even packed in three filling weekday lunch recipes that go well beyond your usual brown-bag lunch. Think about trying our Smoky White Bean Soup and Herbed Shrimp-and-Rice Salad, in lieu of your typical mid-day meal. Rounding out the month with our classic Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake and Pecan Crunch Tart, it’s bound to be an exciting start of a New Year.
