I love cooking seasonally and in the moment. There’s nothing more satisfying than coming home with the snappiest peas in the spring and making a bright, beautiful salad, or the juiciest tomatoes in the summer for a drippy, glorious BLT.

But I’m equally fond of dishes I can turn to any time of year. Things like spaghetti carbonara, pimenton fried eggs on toast, and creamy chickpea curry, all with inexpensive and dependable ingredients. They’re the weeknight staples that always deliver, even when my tired brain is on autopilot.
