Apple crisp is an absolute must come fall. Requiring a fraction of the work of apple pie, apple crisp still delivers on autumnal delight: warm, fragrant apples bathed in sweet cinnamon, topped with a crisp, crumbly oat mixture that makes the perfect contrast in each bite. Want to make apple crisp even better? Build it in an oven-safe skillet and you can go straight from sautéing your apples to baking the whole thing in the oven without dirtying an extra pan.

French toast is the gold-standard of slow Saturdays – a hot cup of coffee in one hand, a sizzling skillet on the stove, and Billie Holiday crooning in the background.

This deceptively simple mix of cabbage, peanuts, and rice vinegar with oil is one of the easiest ways to round out a meal.
