From fried chicken and fish skin to savory herbs in cocktails, we saw a lot of food and beverage trends at the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen. Take a look at the most noteworthy and how you can apply them at home.
You may have heard of the Fuzzy Navel, an '80s-era cocktail, but have you ever tried a Buzzy Fuzzy Navel? A riff on the classic, made slightly less sweet and fizzy — or rather buzzy — by a splash of beer, this summery cocktail will quench your thirst and get your night (or day) off to the right start. Watch the video to see how it's made, then print out the recipe.

Ultra-comforting, and packed with layers of meat sauce, cheese, and tender noodles, Olive Garden's Lasagna Classico is one of their bestselling menu items (and for good reason). Learn how to make this surprisingly easy dish at home, and bring a taste of Italian-American fare to your table. Gooey, gratifying, and fit to feed a crowd, it's a must-make for large dinner parties — for extra ease make it ahead of time and reheat it — or to keep on hand for leftovers throughout the week. Watch the video to learn how to make it, and then get cooking.
Crowd-pleasing, easy to make (the components can even be prepped ahead of time), and full of bold flavors, this Mediterranean take on 7-layer dip is just the ticket for casual Summer entertainment. Serve this hummus and pesto-based appetizer with pita chips or crudités and be prepared for it to be devoured with relish. Watch the video to see how it's done, then print out the recipe and get dipping.
