How To Build A Sheet
Before the pandemic hit, we had a whole year of themes around which we were going to organize our recipes and articles, and we started off the year with a nod to the kind of convenient recipes that many people seem to be drawn to, like sheet-pan dinners. We’ve long been skeptical of the merits of a meal made with as little effort as possible, but Daniel took on the challenge of trying to figure out how to wring as much flavor out of the idea as possible. The result was his guide to making sheet-pan dinners, which offers some tips, tricks, and techniques for making something like a chicken fajita dinner as effortless as possible, Serious Eats-style.

Food Safety And Coronavirus
As with everything else in the world, there was a clear dividing line for the articles and recipes we published this year, one that can easily be summed up with two phrases: before COVID-19 and enduring COVID-19. The pandemic forced us to abandon our office and its test kitchen, and we were compelled to work from home.
Our most popular articles of the entire year concern enduring COVID-19 times, and the very most popular one was a piece we published by Kenji López-Alt right when everyone was initially freaking out about the novel coronavirus. Kenji, who was trying to keep his restaurant afloat while also keeping his staff and family safe, took on the monumental task of providing a comprehensive guide for how the coronavirus affects food safety.
To complement Kenji’s amazing work, the rest of us tried to offer up some helpful advice for everyone who suddenly found themselves relying on home-cooked meals for each and every single meal. Other top performing articles included the pantry staples we turned to immediately when stocking up for the lockdowns, our reflections on the lessons we’d learned from cooking for ourselves in isolation, and a delightfully thorough guide to sanitizing your kitchen from Nik Sharma, who has a background in laboratory sciences.

Even during normal times, the world loves a bucket list, but I find these days, the concept is even more appealing
For those of us lucky enough to be in good health or able to steal a break from home-schooling/zoom-meeting/toddler mania, when will there be a better time to see a few of the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time, or attempt to read a novel off the list of Best Books of the Century or queue up one of The Best 50 Shows on Netflix?
But as I was mentally checking boxes on the film list, and queuing up Unorthodox on my laptop, and considering Turn of the Screw for my next book club selection , it occurred to me: Where are the Greatest of All Time recipe lists?
