They're shown in descending order, with our most popular recipe, Melissa Clark's pasta with fried lemon, leading the way.

Holiday Roasts - NYT Cooking

You Are Making Your Biscuits Wrong — Hanna Raskin is the restaurant critic for The Seattle Weekly, but in 1998 she was a greenhorn reporter at The Commercial Dispatch in Columbus, Miss. Oprah Winfrey was jobbing around the country that year doing publicity for "Beloved," a film she had commissioned and starred in with Danny Glover.

Christmas Recipes - NYT Cooking — Our guide to the year's biggest meal, with our best recipes, advice and instruction. These are the essentials of a perfect Thanksgiving.

Okonomi-Latke Recipe - NYT Cooking — This hybrid of the Japanese okonomiyaki pancake and the traditional Jewish latke is from Sawako Okochi and Aaron Israel, the chefs and owners of Shalom Japan in Williamsburg, Brooklyn It works beautifully in any setting where you might ordinarily serve latkes and is a fine base for caviars of any hue.

St. Lucia Buns (Lussebullar) — Ingredients Place the butter and milk in a medium bowl. Using a mortar and pestle, grind the saffron with a pinch of the sugar, and stir into the mixture. In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in a little of the lukewarm butter mixture, then add the remaining butter mixture, the remaining sugar and the salt.

Fesenjan Recipe - NYT Cooking — This rich, tangy Iranian chicken stew from Azita Houshiar is a highlight of the Persian holiday Shab-e Yalda, a winter-solstice tradition that predates Islam by thousands of years The chicken is drenched in pomegranate molasses and cooked with a copious amount of ground walnuts, which results in a gravy that is sweet, tart and thick with flavor.

Baked Beans Recipe - NYT Cooking — Proper Boston baked beans would have salt pork instead of the bacon James Beard cooked them with ribs The key is to use the little white pea beans known as navy beans, and to allow time to do most of the work

Smothered Shrimp in Crab-Meat Gravy — Alexander Smalls, the chef and an owner of two Harlem restaurants, the Cecil and Minton's, serves this dish over grits as an appetizer at Christmas, but it's hearty enough for a meal at almost any time of year It is a recipe rooted in the culinary traditions of the South Carolina coast and benefits mightily from the use of fresh shrimp and crab.

Bananas Foster Bread Pudding — Here is a nod both to the original bananas Foster at Brennan's restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans and to the luxe version of bananas baba au rhum that the Louisiana chef Allison Vines-Rushing once cooked at Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar in the East Village Silky and rich, deep with the flavors of bananas, rum and custard, it is not much work to make, and pays off in incredible flavor Do not be afraid to use an even darker sugar than the brown called for in the recipe, though molasses may be a step too far
