13 Recipes to Help You Up Your Culinary Game

Channel your inner MasterChef with these recipes.

By: Gabby Sgherri

As much as we miss dining out with friends and regular trips to our favorite neighborhood  restaurants, social distancing has encouraged all of us at Coveteur to eat more home-cooked meals, and were (mostly) enjoying this time in the kitchen.  Not everyone is a natural Martha Stewart, though. Weve been relying heavily on recipes pulled from culinary corners of the web, trying our hand at everything from veggie tacos to banana pancakes. Whether youre a vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, or omnivore, recipes abound. Ahead, 13 of our favorites to try. Enjoy!
