This is a simple, hands-off stew, perfect for a chilly fall or winter evening.

Slow Cooked Boeuf Bourguignon

Boeuf Bourguignon relies on slowly building layers of flavor, starting with bacon, then searing the beef in the bacon fat, then deglazing with red wine before the final long, slow simmer to result in a rich and complex dish. It fills your kitchen with the deep, savory scents of beef, red wine, and onions. This particular recipe gives you two options to complete the cooking: either in a slow-cooker, or in the oven. The slow-cooker method will take an additional 4-6 hours, so keep this in mind!

Braised Lamb Shanks with Puréed Root Vegetables

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas

Serve this flavorful pork dish on its own, or with chopped cilantro, diced onion, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, and refried beans for the ultimate taco night! This makes enough for 20-30 tacos, so you'll have enough to feed a crowd. Carnitas are also a great filling for burritos or tamales.

Individual Pot Roasts with Thyme-Glazed Carrots

Pot roast is typically a weekend dinner, requiring loads of time in the oven.

If you've been looking for a gluten-free pasta, quinoa pasta should earn a spot on your pantry shelves. It holds it shape, stays firm, and most importantly, tastes great.

Besides the task of peeling the onions, the oven will do most of the work for you here, bursting and concentrating the tomatoes, and turning the onions silky-sweet and tender.

This Mediterranean-style pasta dish is a snap to prepare.

Corn and Tomato Stuffed Avocados

If you don't want to heat up your kitchen with the oven, you can skip broiling these stuffed avocados - they're just as delicious at room temperature.

Using the Co-op's pizza dough makes this so easy! The following recipe is quite minimal, so use this as a starting point - try a more traditional one with tomato sauce, or pesto, and add meat if you like, or more vegetables. Once you've grilled pizza, you won't want to turn the oven on for the rest of the summer.

Delicately flavored fennel seeds and the warm heat of chili peppers makes this egg salad over the top delicious. Cooking the eggs for just eight minutes will ensure that they're perfectly creamy.

Sautéed Artichokes Baked with Mozzarella

Marcella Hazan says, "Whenever I have demonstrated this dish, professional cooks...were startled at how dark I allowed the artichokes to get. But it is only then, when they have deeply and confidently browned, that they develop flavor, sapore."
