Fluffy Rice Pilaf with Curry Recipe
Let rice steam until water is absorbed and grains are tender, 12–15 minutes. Remove pot from heat, uncover, and stir in 1 cup frozen peas. Drape a kitchen towel over pot. Place lid on top and let rice continue to gently steam about 5 minutes (this also makes it fluffier).
Maple-Habanero Glazed Pork Steaks Recipe
Peel 4 wide strips of zest from orange with a vegetable peeler, leaving white pith behind. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over high until it begins to smoke, about 3 minutes. Add pork, cinnamon stick, and 1 thyme sprig to pan and cook, turning pork once, until steaks are browned on both sides but still pink in the center, 3–4 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a plate, reserving cinnamon stick in skillet; discard thyme. Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook onion and remaining 2 Tbsp. oil in skillet, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, tender, and just beginning to brown, 5–7 minutes.
Sour Candied Citrus Peels Recipe
4 large oranges, 3 grapefruit, or 6 lemons or limes, halved through stem ends
3 cups sugar, divided
2 tablespoons citric acid
Tear out flesh from orange halves, being careful not to create any holes in peels. It’s okay if you can’t remove all of the pith. Save flesh for another use; cut peels into ¼” strips.
Bring orange peels and 4 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan and cook 5 minutes. Drain and return peels to pan. Repeat process twice more, using fresh water each time. Return peels to pan; add 2 cups sugar and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil and cook until peels are soft and translucent and vibrant looking, 30–40 minutes (about 10 minutes longer for grapefruit, or 10 minutes less for lemons or limes). Drain and transfer peels to a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet; chill until cool, about 15 minutes.
Whisk citric acid and remaining 1 cup sugar in a medium bowl. Add peels; toss to coat. Return to rack; let sit at room temperature 1 hour. Toss peels again in sugar mixture. Return to rack; let sit 4–12 hours to dry out.
Do Ahead: Citrus peels can be candied 1 month ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.

Olive Oil Cake Recipe
Using an electric mixer on high speed (use whisk attachment if working with a stand mixer), beat eggs, lemon zest, and 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. sugar in a large bowl until mixture is very light, thick, pale, and falls off the whisk or beaters in a slowly dissolving ribbon, about 3 minutes if using a stand mixer and about 5 minutes if using a hand mixer. With mixer still on high speed, gradually stream in 1¼ cups oil and beat until incorporated and mixture is even thicker. Reduce mixer speed to low and add dry ingredients in 3 additions, alternating with amaretto mixture in 2 additions, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Fold batter several times with a large rubber spatula, making sure to scrape the bottom and sides of bowl. Scrape batter into prepared pan, smooth top, and sprinkle with more sugar.
