Support Provided By

It is no question that food can bring people together and that a simple recipe can make or break a party. Here are some of KCET's most popular recipes from 2017 that are sure to be a hit at your next gathering.

Boneless Grilled Pork Chops

Boneless Grilled Pork Chops

Pork chops in anchovy paste may sound unusual ... but it is, of course, delicious.

Mee Goreng (Malaysian Stir-Fried Noodles)

Mee Goreng (Malaysian Stir-Fried Noodles)

This recipe is a classic Malaysian dish that's often found at street stalls. And anything that's found at street stalls is, of course, comfort food. Feel free to use whatever combination of meat and tofu you want.

Lebanese Garlic Sauce (Toum)

Lebanese Garlic Sauce (Toum)

If you have been to Zankou Chicken or one of the many other Lebanese and Armenian restaurants in Los Angeles, you're likely familiar with toum, the fluffy, creamy garlic sauce that often accompanies grilled meats and kebabs. 

Mahogany Chicken Thighs

Mahogany Chicken Thighs

What's the difference between a ho-hum chicken thigh dinner and a when-can-we-make-this-again recipe? Crispy skin. That said, don't skip the essential last step! Serve with rice and a side of sauteed vegetables and you got yourself a great meal.

Red Lentil Soup with North African Spices

Red Lentil Soup with North African Spices

Winter requires a few things on the checklist. Raincoat? Check. Waterproof shoes? Check. Spicy, comforting soup? Check. For additional heat and spice, serve the soup with harissa, the North African chili sauce.

Muffin Tin Donuts

Muffin Tin Donuts

We've got donuts on the brain. But sometimes you just don't want to leave the house, even if it is for a perfect, sugary treat. Thank goodness for this recipe. You just pop the dough into a muffin tin — no special equipment needed for these fantastic crowd-pleasers.

Dakota Bread

Dakota Bread

Homemade bread is a pure joy, and when it's made even more nutritious by the addition of nuts and seeds, it's something we could see ourselves making regularly. (Well, maybe.) This rendition of Dakota bread uses hot cereal to make it a bit less time-consuming to prepare, without any decline in flavor.

Barbecued Burnt Ends

Barbecued Burnt Ends

Traditionally, barbecued burnt ends come from the fatty, point-cut brisket, but to adapt to the leaner flat-cut brisket that's more commonly available, this recipe cuts the meat into strips and brines it to maximize moisture and flavor. It will also save you a trip to Missouri — the spicy, tangy sauce will still remind you of Kansas City-style barbecue!

Mixed Berry Scones

Mixed Berry Scones

To get light and flaky scones, this recipe discovered that treating the butter in two different ways was key. A simple glaze of butter and honey adds a nice finish to the scones.

Pasta e Ceci (Pasta with Chickpeas)

Pasta e Ceci (Pasta with Chickpeas)

This pasta e ceci is simple to prepare, yet packed full of satisfying flavor.
