Imagine how many recipes you make over the span of a decade. In between the “just OK” and “never cooking this again,” there are rare bright spots—dishes that you want to make over and over, they’re that good. Over the past ten years, PureWow has published roughly 1,500 recipes. And while they’re all delicious in their own ways, some just hit the tastebuds differently. These are the 20 recipes you (and we) have loved the most.

The name says it all. These spuds are smothered in cream sauce and lots of cheese for a rich, comforting side that can be made ahead and held in the fridge until you’re ready to bake it.

17. Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust

We’re huge advocates for store-bought pie crust. This just turns the volume up a little (OK, a lot.) Pair it with pumpkin, why don’t you?

13. Easy One-Pan Ratatouille

Usually, ratatouille requires cooking each vegetable separately—and slowly. Our version might not be as authentic, but it’s weeknight friendly, and that’s saying a lot.

You’re craving a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie. But you don’t want to dirty the entire kitchen and you definitely don’t want to share. That’s where this single-serve mug of deliciousness comes in.

1. Spicy Whole Roasted Cauliflower

Not to brag, but we were so ahead of the cauliflower trend. This dish is as dramatic in presentation as it is easy in preparation, so naturally it’s our top recipe of all time.
