Chocolate Chip Cookies

This may become your new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. It’s a little more complicated, and you’ll have to plan ahead, but the end result is a marvelously chewy, chocolate-rich cookie. Don’t skimp on good chocolate, and the sea salt is not an option -- it’s the beacon at the top of this gorgeous treat. (Photo: Francesco Tonelli for NYT)

Spinach Lasagna

Equal parts indulgent and virtuous, this meatless lasagna from Mark Bittman will please everyone at the table. Serve it with a green salad on a weeknight, or alongside a platter of meatballs for Sunday dinner. And listen: We won't tell anyone if you use no-bake noodles or frozen spinach. It's all good either way. (Photo: Craig Lee for NYT)

Tuscan Farro Soup

NYT Cooking: Simple yet amazing. This healthy soup, a kind of minestrone with farro, is ubiquitous in Lucca, a city in Tuscany. The farro is traditional, but you could use spelt or barley with good results.

Pan-Roasted Cauliflower With Garlic, Parsley and Rosemary

NYT Cooking: Nearly any vegetable tastes good browned in olive oil and showered with garlic, parsley and rosemary, but cauliflower is an especially good candidate for this technique. The inherent sweetness of cauliflower begs for a hit of lemon and hot pepper too. Serve hot or at room temperature.

Roast Chicken With Fennel

The kind of fennel we see in supermarkets (which, almost needless to say, is cultivated, not wild) is wonderful when cooked to full tenderness, so I thought it might make a good base for chicken, which is heavier than fish and takes longer to cook. The idea was that the fennel would lend its flavor to the chicken, the chicken would lend its juices to the fennel and the creation would need little else. The results were better than expected.

Midnight Pasta With Garlic, Anchovy, Capers and Red Pepper

NYT Cooking: There’s something about pasta, cooked properly, that trumps all the other possibilities. And the smell of pasta boiling is a heady cheap thrill. With a few basic staple pantry items, a true feast can be ready in minutes. Good spaghetti, good olive oil, garlic and a little red pepper are all you need, plus some anchovy and capers if you have them.
