Recipe of the Day

Feast your eyes on our daily dose of top-rated recipes and fantastic food photos.

February 1: Very Chocolate Cheesecake

"Wow this is a very rich cheesecake! It formed a soft crust on the top and after chilling in the fridge for a few hours we were dying to try some! The inside is super creamy and very chocolatey and rich. It reminds me of the inside of a truffle."


February 2: Taco Tater Tot Casserole

"This was awesome! My whole family—even the kids—want it for dinner again tomorrow!"


February 3: Oven-Fried Chicken Sliders

"The best non-fried, fried chicken sandwich you'll ever eat! Truly epic."

-Amanda Gryphon

February 4: Ham & Bean Soup

"This soup is so perfect. It is a regular dinner with my family—the best ham and bean recipe on Genius Kitchen. Reminds me of being back home in Kentucky."

-Chef Two Hearts

February 5: Chinese Eggplant in Garlic Sauce

Eggplant is the star of this vegetarian entrée. The aromatic sauce is flavored heavily with garlic and has just the right amount of Chinese five spice and chili oil.

February 6: Orange Chicken Bao Buns

Lightly-fried chicken is coated in a spicy orange sauce and sandwiched inside steamed bao buns, along with fresh herbs and Kewpie mayo.

February 7: Fettucine Alfredo

"My husband and I visited Olive Garden last week and I ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo, and while it was pretty good, this recipe is so much better!"


February 8: Shepherd's Pie Potato Skins

These crispy potato skins are packed with the classic shepherd’s pie filling and get their tang from sharp cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

February 9: Homemade Pizza Rolls

"Very good and super simple. I slightly underfilled them and had no problems with them bursting, they actually looked like they were made by someone who knew what they were doing. Now I'm curious to see what else I can put inside an eggroll wrapper...."


February 10: Nutella Brownies

"These were simple and good. I added about an 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon. It really brought out the hazelnut flavor of the nutella."


February 11: Italian Bolognese Sauce

"I have been making this recipe since I found it 5 years ago. This is the best bolognese you will ever try! Instead of using American bacon I use Pancetta chopped up. It's not as fatty and gives it a lovely authentic Italian flavor."

-Chef Kerry-Ann

February 12: Cranberry-Almond Biscotti

Pro tip: Soak the dried cranberries for an hour, then towel them off before adding them to the dough.

February 13: Homemade Pasta

"That was too easy! After I mixed it in the food processor, I ran it through the pasta machine and then let it dry out for a few hours. Turned out beautifully, thank you!"

-mums the word

February 14: Red Velvet Cheesecake Crepes

These made-from-scratch crêpes are easy to prepare and packed with a fluffy cheesecake filling studded with mini chocolate chips.

February 15: Peach Cobbler Dump Cake

"This is fantastic! I really don't know the sizes of any of the ingredients, I just dumped them!"


February 16: Boeuf Bourguignon

"This is the best dish ever, which I love to eat on my birthday. The quartered mushrooms and cipollini onions are key."

-Ethan at GK

February 17: BBQ Pulled Pork

"I made this exactly as written; my first attempt at pulled pork. The entire family liked it very much and I will be making it again."


February 18: Chocolate Red Wine Truffles

"The trick to these is making sure they are chilled really, really well—maybe even a bit of time in the freezer—and to use a melon baller. Having said that, red wine in chocolate is a revelation."

-Retro Kali

February 19: Chicken Cordon Bleu

"Change the name to Deluxe Chicken Cordon Bleu, that cream sauce takes it through the roof!"


February 20: Cherry Pie

"I grew up in Michigan and have had my fair share of cherry pies and this by far is the best."


February 21: Whole Wheat Pancakes

"Very light and tasty compared to other whole wheat pancakes I've tried. They are easy to make. I added vinegar to my milk to substitute for buttermilk and they turned out great. These are a thin, light pancake...delicate. If you are lookly for a thick pancake, these aren't for you."


February 22: Tequila Lime Chicken

While this recipe was written for the grill, it also works great when prepared in a pan—especially on National Margarita Day.

February 23: Bananas Foster

"Created in 1951, Bananas Foster are now found all over the US but the original comes from Brennan's in New Orleans, LA. Over 35,000 pounds of bananas are used every year at Brennan's."


February 24: Mongolian Coconut Brisket

This brisket is braised in coconut milk in an Instant Pot with garlic and soy.

February 25: Clam Chowder

"This is the easiest, best chowder I have ever made. I did add a little garlic and a bay leaf like suggested."

-tammy dalton

February 26: Pesto & Artichoke Lasagna

"This is an outstanding recipe! Great choice for vegetarians and my vegan friend who just substitutes her vegan cheese and pesto!"


February 27: Kahlua Fudge

"Really good, very sweet fudge. Just a hint of Kahlua, so I would recommend adding more if you want more of that flavor."


February 28: Crock Pot Salsa Chicken

"It doesn't get any easier. Throw everything in the crockpot and go. Served it over Mexican rice. A great weeknight meal!"
