4 Speedy, Chef-Approved Ways to Have Meatballs for Dinner

4 Speedy, Chef-Approved Ways to Have Meatballs for Dinner Have you heard? We love meatballs, every which way. They’re the ultimate big-batch, stick-to-your-ribs comfort food to tuck into on a cold winter’s night. And they’re usually super-quick, making them perfect weeknight-dinner fodder. Though you can’t go wrong by sticking with the classics, there’s a lot you can do to make meatballs your own—whether it’s spicing them up, veggie-fying them, or shrinking them into these teeny-tiny little cuties. Or! Maybe you want to go wild, mixing and matching flavors, letting your fridge and pantry dictate what whirligigs you toss into your meatballs. And with the help of Cook in the Blank—our fill-in-the-blank guide to the speediest, most riffable weeknight dinners—you can do just that. No matter what, you'll come out with a quick and comforting meal at the end. 5 Really Easy Dinner Ideas, Because You're Gonna Cook a B by Brinda Ayer 5 Cheesy Baked Pastas to Whip Up On a Weeknight by Brinda Ayer To prove it, we asked four pros (and busy bees) in the food world to take their meatballs for a spin on a hectic weeknight: Hana Asbrink, our senior lifestyle editor and busy working mom; Tyler Kord, busy working dad and chef-owner of No.

Dear E. Jean: I'm a pretty, smart girl who's gone through shattering, horrible, tragic heartbreak because of a man I absolutely adored. After I spent half a year getting to know him, then a year and a half in the gawdawfullest part of the South trying to develop a relationship with him, he unceremoniously dumped me. I came to my senses, moved back to New York, and began a new career. My problem? He is flying in for business and has asked me to dinner.

I've thought endlessly about what I'm going to wear, revved up the diet and exercise, imagined all sorts of ridiculously expensive restaurants he might invite me to, but I (honestly!) don't indulge any grand fantasy of him saying: "I was wrong; I'm moving here to be with you. Marry me." My question: Should I even bother spending an evening with this man? And if I end up seeing him, do I play it cool? Or should I be all sugar, like I normally am? I really want him to eat his heart out! Clearly I've lost all perspective. -Slightly Over the Edge

12 Instant Pot Recipes for Cozy Dinner in a Flash

12 Instant Pot Recipes for Cozy Dinner in a Flash I'm not going to beat around the bush. It was, like, nine degrees Fahrenheit earlier this week in New York City. No amount of scarves, long underwear, tights beneath long underwear, double socks, or ear muffs could've prepared me for the walk to the grocery store around 4 p.m. By the time I returned to my apartment (at around 4:15 p.m.), I was pretty sure my cheeks and nose would never thaw. Enter: a cozy, burbling dinner. One that tastes like it's been cooking allllll day long, but that totally hasn't. For this, I turn to my Instant Pot: an electric multicooker capable of producing low-and-slow flavor (you know, the Maillard reaction, and all that) in a flash.

Slightly, Sugar: Should you "bother"? Please. If I duct-taped your Manolos (with you inside them) to the top of the Empire State Building, you'd show up at the restaurant, dragging the spire behind you. Go. Be yourself. But I warn you: Your imagination has lathered up the smoochie-smoochie so thoroughly (dress, menu, "will you marry me"-yes! Don't fib to Eeee), your skepticism has been lost in the shuffle. The man's an "unceremonious" ass. Therefore, allow me to suggest another scenario: You kiss him goodnight in front of the restaurant; you jump in a cab, slam the door, wind down the window, throw him another kiss; and, as he stands throbbing on the sidewalk, you zoom away-gloriously, gorgeously indifferent.
