Our recipes are organized by occasion. We figure that when you’re heading to a block party, you don’t think, “What chicken dish should I bring?” Instead, you wonder: “What the heck can I whip up in the least amount of time that suits the event?”

We aim to help you make that decision quickly and easily. Within each category, you’ll find a growing library of dishes — appetizers, soups, salads, main courses and desserts — perfectly matched to the occasion.

Let us know if you have additional categories to suggest!

    I have cut out of the Dallas Morning News, Wed, May 4th your recipe for Summer corn salad with chiles, lime & Feta. It looks wonderful, cool & light! However, should I cook or steam the corn ? There is no mention of cooking it, but I’m not sure I’ve ever eaten “raw” corn. I had planned on taking this to a luncheon at noon tomorrow, so would really appreciate a quick reply. I am also planning to make your brown butter blueberry muffins soon. Thanks, Janie Wright
