This week’s most-viewed recipes online offer a nice mix of sweet and savory — with a nod toward the upcoming feast.

1. British Scones, above. These would be lovely to have for any visitors stopping by: They’re fluffy, tender and wonderful with strawberry jam (or clotted cream, if you’re feeling particularly proper). See step-by-step photos in Voraciously.

2. Herb-Slathered Turkey. The herbs are suspended in mayonnaise and then rubbed all over the bird, meaning the meat is incredibly moist and flavored throughout. It’s part of a whole slew of new Thanksgiving recipes we’ve prepared for you.

3. Roasted Red Pepper Mac and Cheese. It’s heavy on the sauce but thickens as it sits and is especially great when made ahead and reheated. We published this as a Thanksgiving recipe, but it needn’t be confined to the holidays to enjoy.

4. Upside-Down Mango Cake. A lush, tarte-Tatin-style cake from Najmieh Batmanglij.

5. Pressure Cooker Honey Sesame Chicken. This is better than takeout sesame chicken. (Plus you can make it in your Instant Pot.)
