My Most Popular Recipes Ever

From addictive sticky chicken wings to the most perfect key lime pie I’ve ever tasted, here are five tried-and-true recipes that I make all of the time. Turns out, you all love them as much as I do.


One Pot Sticky Chicken Wings

1. One-Pot Chinese Chicken Wings

I first had this dish in Malaysia, where food stalls were churning out chicken wings glazed with this classic Chinese master sauce that I can’t get enough of. Sticky and fatty, the best versions of this dish emulsify the chicken fat into the sauce as it reduces. Get the recipe >>>


Bloody Mary

2. The Perfect Bloody Mary

This balanced bloody Mary sticks to the classic ingredients: tomato, horseradish, Tabasco, Worcestershire, celery, cumin and citrus. The lemon and lime really brighten it up, while the pepper, horseradish and hot sauce give it a fiery kick. Get the recipe >>>


French Onion Soup

3. The Best French Onion Soup

In 1992, I started work at a French bistro in Minneapolis that served the best onion soup I ever tasted. Here is that recipe. It’s redesigned for the home cook in only one way: the stock. In the restaurant, we were able to make a 72-hour veal stock that provided a backbone like no other for this French classic. If you want to be super-ambitious and love the crafty part of cookery, go for it and make your own. Get the recipe >>>



Key Lime Pie

4. Key Lime Pie

I think this is the most perfect Key Lime Pie recipe I have ever tasted. The ratios are spot on and the custard turns out perfectly every time. Make this recipe with lemons, Meyer lemons, grapefruits, sour oranges…any citrus that is super tart. Get the recipe >>>



5. Crab Cakes

This is my favorite crab cake recipe. If you don’t overmix and don’t pack your mounds too tightly, you will experience pure, unadulterated crab cake heaven. I like ones that don’t have a lot of filler, no minced red pepper, no parsley—none of the usual crap that chefs typically ruin a good crab cake with. Get the recipe >>>
