If you're like us, perfecting new dishes and new techniques has become a daily practice. But cooking more at home also means finding new inspiration––a lot––so mealtimes stay interesting. These six Anolon fan-favorite summertime recipes, and their essential pan counterparts, will keep your lineup fresh and your palate pleased.
1. FROM-SCRATCH PLUM CARDAMOM JAM
Toast never looked better – A from-scratch Plum Cardamom Jam that's just as delicious as the stuff straight from your local farmer's market. Pro tip: when making this, use a high-sided stockpot to limit stove splatters.
2. GRILLED CHICKEN SANDWICHES WITH MANGO SALSA
3. CRISPY COCONUT SHRIMP WITH PINEAPPLE RELISH
Crispy Coconut Shrimp with Pineapple Relish is so delicious, you'll feel like you can never make enough. The sweet, crunchy crust is the perfect counterpoint to tender, mild shrimp – and if that doesn't convince you this is a recipe must-try, the tangy, somewhat spicy pineapple relish will.
4. PERUVIAN WINGS WITH AJI VERDE
These Peruvian Wings with Aji Verde are equal parts sophistication and creativity – and why this recipe makes our list of all-time favorites. But because it's the sticky-sweet sauce that makes this wing recipe so great, a skillet with easy-to-clean nonstick is essential.
5. PLUM-CHILI SLOPPY JOES
Plum-Chili Sloppy Joes are not the same sandwiches we grew up on! This recipe is super easy to make and clean up—one of the many advantages of having dishwasher safe cookware!
6. CRUNCHY BUDDHA BOWLS WITH GREEN GODDESS DRESSING
This Crunchy Buddha Bowl with Green Goddess Dressing is everything... and perfect for a make-ahead lunch on warmer days. When making quinoa, use a heavy-bottom saucepan with a tightly fitting lid so moisture stays in and the bottom doesn't burn – like one from the Anolon Advanced Home collection.
