Skillet Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp

Rating: 5 stars 2
Fresh strawberries and rhubarb meld together under a crisp oat crumble in this gluten-free dessert recipe made in just one skillet. If you're not gluten-sensitive, regular rolled oats will work too. Top with a dollop of whipped cream for an extra-special treat.

Lamb & Beef Balti

Rating: 5 stars 2
Balti, a stew created by Pakistani chefs in Birmingham, England, is named after the metal pot it's cooked in. We found a large skillet works too. Topping with a dollop of yogurt adds a hint of creaminess. Serve with a side of sautéed spinach for a satisfying dinner.

Pimm's Spritz Cocktail

A cross between the English hot-weather staple Pimm's cup and the effervescent spritz, this easy lower-alcohol drink recipe relies on club soda for its festive fizz.

Apple-Rhubarb Crisp

Oats and pecans top this easy apple-rhubarb crisp for a quick, springtime dessert. When buying or picking rhubarb, select stalks that are firm and red—avoid ones that are soft and waggly. And if you slice the rhubarb very thinly, there's no need to peel off any outer strings.

English Trifle

Fresh fruit and angel food cake lighten this classic. A light custard, made with meringue and fat-free milk, drops the calories by half. Store-bought angel food cake works fine here.
