The ultimate fix-it-and-forget-it recipe, The Pioneer Woman’s big-batch salad dressing works well on top of a simple green salad, and she notes that it can also star tossed in a pasta salad. Her secret? A classic combination of nutty Parmesan and bright, fresh lemon juice, which add bold taste to her oil-based dressing. If you’re planning to serve this at a party, keep in mind that Ree Drummond recommends letting the dressing chill for a day before serving it; this will give the flavors of the ingredients a chance to marry.

Not just for sandwiches, the classic combo of PB and J can star in dessert, too, as it does in this week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week. Ina Garten makes a sweetened dough to feature as both the base of the bars and the topping. And in the middle, it’s all about the jam; Ina opts for raspberry, but you can use your favorite flavor if you prefer. For welcome texture, blanket the dessert with chopped peanuts before baking.
