Peanut Fudge Ripple Ice Cream

Homemade vanilla ice cream dotted with salty peanuts with ribbons of fudge If you’ve never made real ice cream (as in, a base that calls for eggs), you’re in for a treat. My vanilla base is without a doubt the creamiest, dreamiest ice cream. A friend of mine called it “luxury ice cream” because of…

Pineapple Passion Martini

Cheers, my dears! I’ve got a delightful new martini recipe that’s super quick to shake up. I wrote this recipe as a single martini but it easily doubles in a standard cocktail shaker. I used Still Austin’s American Gin: The Naturalist for this recipe, which I adore because it tastes like elderflower. If you use…

Dutch Oven Bread

Is there anything more mouth-watering than perfect bread that’s still warm from the oven? The aroma alone is worth dirtying some dishes. This bread is tangy, a bit like sourdough, and really could not be easier to make. You don’t even need to knead it! Don’t have a Dutch oven? Try my braided loaf! This…

Grilled Chicken Tenders

It’s wild that this has never appeared on The Rose Table before because I swear I make this every week! If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know how passionate I am about chicken tenders. They have a bad rep I suppose because the frozen fried children’s food is also called chicken…

The Best Grilled Shrimp

Shrimp is so fast and easy to grill! When they’re hot from the grill, I brush grilled shrimp with melted butter and lemon juice, then sprinkle them with Italian parsley. Delicious! This dish literally takes five minutes to make so be sure to have your other sides ready to go before grilling your shrimp. You…

Disney Dinners: Peter Pan

Can you believe it’s been a whole year since I posted a Disney Dinner? The pandemic sure threw a wrench in my dinner party lifestyle but I thought we could all use some Disney magic so it is with great pleasure that I give you Disney Dinners: Peter Pan. “You can fly! We can fly!…

The Tinkerbell

Inspired by Peter Pan’s sidekick, The Tinkerbell is a sparkly champagne cocktail I know this is a big statement, but The Tinkerbell might be my favorite Disney Dinners drink. It’s just so delicious! It’s only a few ingredients but the combination is spot on, and who doesn’t love a glittery drink? I came up with…

Second Star to the Right Crostini

“Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning” This of course refers to the location of Neverland in Disney’s Peter Pan. In the film, Neverland is a brighter star than the star to its left, so I thought two tasty crostini stars would be a perfect way to kick off Disney Dinners: Peter…

Zucchini Boat Pirate Ships

I mean, what could be cuter! I came up with this whimsical dish to represent Captain Hook at Disney Dinners: Peter Pan but it would be a hit at any pirate party. My delicious zucchini boats have seasoned ground beef, tomatoes, ricotta cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese. I think kids will appreciate this adorable presentation that’s perfect…
