When we're having salmon for dinner, I have to remember to pull the frozen fillets from the freezer that morning and tuck them into the fridge to thaw peacefully. But life is hectic and more of my mornings are harried than those occasional thoughtful ones, and I find myself at 6 p.m. on Wednesday staring at rock-hard fillets and a hungry family to feed.

Luckily, it is perfectly safe to cook salmon from a frozen state and, let me assuage any worries right now, it can taste as delicious as properly thawed and cooked salmon too. I've found the secret is to use the power of a hot oven, a little foil, and a flavorful sauce to get you from frozen to dinner in less than 30 minutes.

Nothing makes me feel like more of a breakfast or dinner hero than remembering that I have jars of boozy bacon jam in the fridge. This rich spread could turn a sleeve of stale crackers into a pretty stellar dinner, but when you fold it into warm pasta with fresh corn, sweet tomatoes, and basil, or mix it with maple syrup for pancakes, then you'll feel like giving yourself a gold star for having the foresight to make it.

Boozy bacon jam is also a practical way to preserve bacon that might need using up. You cook the bacon, caramelize some onions, and hold the two together with a little maple syrup, a decent amount of bourbon, and a splash of vinegar. The resulting spread is chunky, with plenty of smoky, savory flavor and back notes of sweetness and bourbon. Making bacon jam is the greatest gift you can give to your future self.

Who doesn't love a chicken tender, really? I think tenders are everyone's favorite — especially at a party. These tenders are easy to make; the ingredients and steps are simple enough for novice cooks to successfully follow and do.
