Classic Meatloaf

Rating: 3.29 stars

Good meatloaf is about as comforting as comfort food gets. Thankfully, meatloaf doesn't have to be complex to be good. It just needs to be tender (from breadcrumbs soaked in milk and gentle handling) and flavorful (from onion, garlic, and ketchup).

Vinegared Pork Chop Milanese with Radish Salad

Reminiscent of the kind of flavors you'd find in a salt-and-vinegar potato chip, this quick and easy weeknight dish starts with zizzling a pounded, breaded pork chop in a thin layer of olive oil, and ends with a splash of white vinegar to infuse its crust with a pop of acidity. A salad of radishes, dill, parsley, and shallot introduces a different kind of crunch, one that’s bright and fresh.

Grilled-Eggplant Parmesan

Our light, summery take on classic eggplant parmesan skips the breading and relies on the grill to do all the cooking. Flame-kissed tomatoes and shallots are turned into a quick sauce, then spooned over charred eggplant and gooey mozzarella for a memorable dinner.

Baked Fish with Summer Squash

Rating: 5 stars

Think baked fish is boring? One taste of this catch of the day, and you'll be hooked. Thinly slice the squashes so they cook as swiftly as the cod or halibut, and combine them with capers, thyme, and olive oil. Covering with foil for most of the cooking time is key: The protein stays tender, the vegetables get soft and juicy, and every forkful bursts with flavor.

Grilled Skirt-Steak Salad

Some dishes are so adjustable, they're more a concept than a recipe. Exhibit A: this grilled-steak salad. The trick is to drizzle on a little vinaigrette when the meat comes off the heat, to give it a savory brightness. Lay the sliced steak and grilled vegetables on top of crunchy romaine and anything else that beckons at the farm stand, then top it all off with briny feta and more vinaigrette.
