Chicken Cutlets with Spicy Coconut Dressing

This is a perfect weeknight dinner option that you can change up based on your craving or what you find at the market. The pairing works because it combines a rich, juicy piece of protein with a cooling, zingy, fresh crunchy salad.

Spaghetti with Quick-Braised Artichoke Hearts

Artichokes are the bogeyman of the vegetable world, and their tiny cat-claw thorns are as terrifying as cobra fangs. But there is no more powerful harbinger to spring than the regal artichoke, which has been enjoyed since ancient Roman times. Learn to prep them and open yourself up to a great delicacy.
