The temperature has officially dipped into cold territory, and this month’s top recipes reflected our desire for warmth. Yes, the oven is on: Maybe you’ve been baking these nutty Cuccidati, or practicing your artistic capabilities with this Easy Sugar Cookie Icing recipe. Comforting weeknight dishes were also a hit, like a lush pot of Perfectly Creamy Potato Soup and sweet-salty Basic Bulgogi; both require minimal prep. And with this tangy Lemon Drop Martini, let’s raise a glass to our most popular recipes of the month.
