Staffer Ben Perez's secret ingredient for the TikTok-famous whipped lemonade? "I added a tiny pinch of salt (trust me on this), because I felt it gave it that frozen margarita-ish vibe and made the flavor more vibrant." Yum!

5. Onion Soup Gratinée (French Onion Soup)

As Chef Jacques Pépin says, "It’s a meal in itself, very often I have one with a salad and it makes a perfect dinner." 

6. Baked Feta Pasta (We Tried the Trend From TikTok!)

Pro tip from staffer Kate Bennert: "Be sure to pay attention to what kind of feta you choose for this recipe. I used a feta packaged in brine (so that it didn't dry out too much in the oven) and I tasted it before I seasoned the rest of my ingredients so as not to end up with a way-too-salty dinner." 

7. Pancake Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting
