1. Warm Sesame-Chicken Salad

This chicken salad is anything but ordinary. Chicory, frisée, and green cabbage tossed with a white wine-tarragon vinaigrette make a lively bed for strips of breaded chicken coated in crisp cornflakes and aromatic sesame seeds. A little chili powder in the coating adds a bit of kick. Get the recipe.

2. Glazed Apple Tart

With a rich butter crust and plenty of juicy apples, this tart is about as classic and comforting a dessert as you can get. What’s different in this version is that the apples are crowned with an extra-crunchy almond topping made with store-bought granola cereal. Get the recipe.
