Ree has recipes for that, too: Osso Buco, Honey-Plum-Soy Chicken or even Rib-Eye Steak With Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce. Don’t forget sinfully easy desserts like Strawberry Shortcake Cake and Apple Brown Betty.

Every year, a new batch of cookbooks hits store shelves. Some bad and some good, but only a handful (or 19 if you agree with The New York Times) rise to the top and really shine.
You’ll see a familiar name while browsing their list: Former Food Network Star (season five) contestant Debbie Lee‘s cookbook, Seoultown Kitchen: Korean Pub Grub to Share With Family and Friends, made the Times list with glowing reviews.
Debbie’s small plates, cocktails and Asian-inspired comfort classics make Korean food accessible. Sure, you might not be able to pronounce some of the ingredients, but we bet her beer-heavy recipes will make fans out of even her biggest haters.
I’m a noncompliant chili chef. I spot a chili recipe, break out the stockpot and handily ignore most of the instructions, unable to keep myself from throwing anything and everything into the mix. Thank goodness food writer, cookbook author and sometime Iron Chef America judge Melissa Clark has come along with a recipe to show me, bite by bite, the merit of chili discipline. A handful of ingredients, well prepared, rather than a whole spice rack of cacophony, are her shared secret.
Bringing a Melissa Clark recipe into your kitchen is like inviting that friend over who always has delicious ideas and solid advice delivered without an ounce of airs. Her cooking is straightforward and smart, at once elegant and inviting. I’ve “known” Melissa, oh, for about a decade, though we’ve never met in person. She wrote food stories I edited at Martha Stewart; she writes my favorite New York Times Dining column, A Good Appetite; I follow her Tweets; we’re Facebook friends. This is all to say I like her style, love her recipes and call her a friend even though we haven’t had the pleasure of sharing a table.

Guy Fieri and his dad prefer to spend Father’s Day grilling out in Guy’s Santa Rosa, CA backyard over a restaurant dinner to celebrate their special day. For the Fieri’s, cooking is a multi-generational family affair — Guy’s kids get involved, cooking alongside their dad and grandfather.

All you have to do is let us know, here in the comments, how you’re celebrating Father’s Day this year. Do you and dad cook together, or does he prefer a restaurant meal?
