Corn Muffins with Prosciutto, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese

YieldServes 12 (serving size: 1 corn muffin)Salty, umami-packed prosciutto and creamy, tangy goat cheese lend loads of flavor to the tender corn muffin base.

No, this traditional Texan dish doesn’t contain any fish eggs. Texas caviar is a black-eyed pea or bean-based dip, full of color and texture from chopped bell pepper, tomato, onion, and herbs.

Buttermilk-Dill Sauce

Creamy, cool, and tangy, this is your go-to, put-it-on-everything yogurt sauce. Spoon over baked fish or chicken, dress a potato salad, or pack with vegetables for snacks during the week.

Flax-Boosted Meatloaf New recipes

Flax-Boosted Meatloaf

Instead of traditional breadcrumbs, we use ground flaxseeds as the binder for this easy meatloaf. The flavors are kept straightforward—just onion, a little garlic, ketchup, and a little nutty hit from the flaxseed. Feel free to toss in some chopped parsley, oregano, or basil for more depth. We call for organic ketchup because it is usually sweetened with sugar, not high fructose corn syrup; some organic brands are also lower in sodium than standard ketchup.

Pork Medallions with Scallions and Magic Green Sauce

Any 5-ingredient dish that feels like more than the sum of its parts is a keeper, and this recipe is an exceptional example. The genius comes in the multitasking roles of the ingredients themselves: The liquid from a jar of capers helps to loosen the green sauce and give it a briny edge; green onions make up the base for the sauce, are sautéed along with the pork, and garnish the finished dish.
