This week at New York Times Cooking, we published an amazing list of recipes that kids — a notoriously choosy (and highly ungrateful) demographic — actually love to eat, sourced from readers of this very newsletter. But let’s not neglect the adults! We’ve got Eric Kim’s fiercely boozy ricotta pasta alla vodka below, alongside recipes for every eater.

3. Bacon, Egg and Cheese Fried Rice
The raucous mash-up I didn’t know I wanted, but very much do: a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich crossed with classic fried rice, courtesy of Kay Chun. Use leftover rice, farro or barley here.
5. Mattar Paneer (Peas and Paneer in Spiced Tomato Gravy)
This recipe by Zainab Shah was one of the dishes we featured that kids love. Take it from Emerson, age 6: “Just the flavors are just like dancing, like they’re dancing on your tongue and really just like delicious.”
