This headline may sound like an exaggeration, but it's not. This recipe perfectly fuses the chicken's flavor and texture with a deep-flavored, umami-rich broth. And the best part…actually the two best parts are: It tastes like you cooked this for four hours & it takes less than an hour from start to finish.

4 chicken thighs, bone-in, skin on - about 1.5 lbs
3 Tbsp canola oil - or any neutral oil
2 c chicken stock
1/2 c red wine
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
10 oz mushrooms, sliced
10 oz fresh spinach, chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno, finely sliced
1 tsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 (plus leftovers, maybe..)

Yes, that's right! The "made easy at home" part. The other part, not so much. Ceviche is neither fancy nor expensive. It's all about the quality of the ingredients. Ceviche is a seafood dish in which the seafood is cooked (technically called "cured") in citrus juices such as lemon and/or lime. Ceviche is the perfect dish on a hot summer day.

1 lb firm white ocean fish, cut into small strips
1/2 c lemon/lime juice - about 3 limes and 1 lemon
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 small tomato, de-seeded and cubed
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 c cilantro, chopped
1 habanero, de-seeded and cut into very tiny pieces - or use a milder pepper
1 tsp Maldon sea salt
4 appetizers

It's the hottest time of year and I'm craving Latin country cuisine. This happens every year and I start making my favorite four: Mexican guacamole, Peruvian ceviche, Spanish gazpacho, and Argentinian chimichurri. So chimichurri it is today. The clash of a woodfire-grilled piece of meat and an uncooked, oil-based herb sauce. Who wins? It's a perfect tie, with both sides shining bright.

1 lb hanger steak
1/2 c extra-virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 c flat leaf parsley
2 Tbsp sage
2 Tbsp oregano
1 small shallot
2 cloves garlic
1 habanero pepper
Maldon sea salt
freshly cracked pepper
