We've got five new weeknight recipes that are exactly what you want to be eating right now: hearty, delicious, and built in a big Dutch oven. Molly Baz and Chris Morocco talk us through their latest creations. After that, we're airing two of the essays that were read during our live show a few weeks ago. Up first is Soups, Ranked, by Alex Beggs and then Three Queens and a Snowstorm, by Priya Krishna.
