S7 E4: Double Down

Double Down

Sara has got nearly a week's full of meals with the simplest idea — cook once, eat twice. Day one starts with a spicy roast pork that's easy and delicious. Day two, that pork is transformed into a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich. On day three, dinner is Peruvian baked chicken thighs that are transformed on day four into chicken and tomatillo salsa nachos. On Ask Sara, Sara answers a viewer's question on the best way to get kids involved in the kitchen. Recipes: Spicy roast pork; My banh mi; Peruvian baked chicken thighs; Chicken and tomatillo salsa nachos.

Simple Elegance

Sometimes all you need are a few simple ingredients to make a fast weeknight meal worthy of a dinner party. That’s what I’m doing with my Pork Medallions with Prunes in a Spicy Mustard Cream Sauce.

Holiday Sides

The winter is full of big family meals where you really have to be on your game to get food on the table all at once. Sara shows a little love to the unsung heroes of the big meal: the sides. She's got delicious winter vegetables like shredded butternut squash with dates, Brussels sprouts with panko breadcrumbs and a creamy tahini sauce, plus a creamy root vegetable soup that can stand on its own as a main course or serve as a first course. And for the hungry cook: apple nutmeg bites to tide you over until dinnertime.
