You're all largely in that same mode, too.

Whether you're planning a holiday feast or simply dinner on Wednesday, you'll find something delightful to make and share in the 10 recipes below.

7. Drop Biscuits

You just may give that box of Bisquick the heave-ho after baking a batch of these flaky-tender and buttery biscuits. The recipe's six ingredients come together in minutes and you have steamy biscuits on the table in half an hour. Scooping them onto the baking sheet gives them craggy tops that you can brush with melted butter before serving, if you like.

8. Julia Child's Fluffy Pumpkin Pie

Here's how Julia Child described this pie in her 1989 cookbook The Way to Cook: "It’s creamy, it’s even light; it’s a pumpkin soufflé in a pie crust." Here's what our recipe editor Laurel Randolph had to say after making it: "While my pie didn’t turn out especially pretty, it was delicious and I will be making it again and again. Everyone I fed it to raved about it."

9. Nothin' Muffins

These super simple, super easy muffins come to use from our contributor Rachel Knecht, whose mother-in-law once made similarly plain muffins "not from a lack of ingredients, but because her young sons were picky eaters and didn’t like muffins that had anything in them," Rachel writes. Her golden, crackly-topped muffins are equally at home at any meal, and make a fine showcase for jam or butter.
