Occasionally I’m completely into the idea of making a complicated, technically-difficult, watch-it-or-its-ruined dish for company. But most of the time I want to enjoy myself. These breadcrumb potatoes are the perfect dish for entertaining, because they’re quick, the work is all in the prep, and they’re still a crowd-pleaser.  Also, they’re potatoes crusted with breadcrumbs.

I make no secret that I’m a true fan of canning. But there are some other things in jars that I also love, like desserts. Jill took this book we love, got inspired, and served up very pretty apple custard pies. You can too by entering the giveaway below. Skip dinner and invite friends over

I’m back from Paris and all I want is comfort food. This bowl of Chinese amazement will be perfect this week. Denise shared her Asian-style Meatballs and Spaghetti recipe a few weeks back, and thanks to Jill for sharing a special and easy version of her Lion’s Head Meatballs today. Is it lunch time yet?

I quickly emailed my recipe for homemade gnocchi to Jill last week, certain she could master a version made with sweet potatoes. I knew I had given the task to the right woman because after two attempts, she’s made a version of sweet potato gnocchi that looks absolutely perfect. Thanks, Jill! -Maggie This is utterly

Every time I see Jill Chen’s photos from China, and specifically her dumpling photos, I get a hunger pang deep in my belly.

Sometimes, Jill Chen is totally in my head. While she makes dandelion wine, I think about making rhubarb wine. When I make a honey and saffron cordial, Jill would gladly side up to the bar for a sniff or a taste or two. Sometimes on the very same night, we’ll both dream about making ice
