Grilled Chicken Caprese

An impressive weeknight recipe that takes just fifteen minutes! My regular readers know how much I love fast and easy recipes that require little clean up. I’ve been making this crowd pleaser all summer long, particularly when I have really good tomatoes from the farmers market. I often pick up meat from the farmers market…

Chicken Gyro

Some of the best meals are so simple. I truly could eat a gyro for lunch every day. When I studied abroad in Greece, I almost did! They’re filling and crunchy and creamy and so delicious. The garlicky (and healthy!) tzatziki sauce just makes it! Chicken gyros come together very quickly. Make the tzatziki sauce…

Pineapple Pork Skewers

I have long loved skewers. If it’s on a stick, I’m probably a fan. If you love sweet and savory together, you’ll love this easy dish that can be used either as an appetizer or main course. I served these skewers at Disney Dinners: Moana as the appetizer. Pork is popular in Hawaii (sorry, Pua!)…

Ahi Tuna Poke

Poke (rhymes with okay) is a popular dish in Hawaii that consists of super fresh raw fish tossed with sushi rice, and whatever extras you’d like. It comes together in a snap if you have chilled rice in your fridge. (You can use room temperature rice, but I prefer cold.) I served ahi tuna poke…

How to Grill Pizza

I remember watching early episodes of Extra Virgin on Cooking Channel and thinking, someday I’m going to be as cool as Gabrielle Corcos and grill pizza. Well I may not have a pizza oven yet but I did finally grill pizza! This post was sponsored by Rao’s Homemade. Thank you for supporting The Rose Table! Last weekend…

The Best Coconut Shrimp

I’m going to let you in on a secret. I never measure when I’m making coconut shrimp. It’s one of the many dishes I make that I’ve been hesitant to post on The Rose Table because I never measure but I’ve decided that well, that’s kind of my thing and you don’t need to measure…

Grilled Lobster Tails

This is hands down one of the best dishes I’ve ever made and it isn’t even difficult. I promise! I’m going to walk you through this. Don’t be scared. I know lobster sounds expensive but just like everything else, it’s much less expensive to prepare at home. For this you’ll want to buy lobster tails, which are…

Ginger Lime Beurre Blanc

Swoon, swoon, swoon. You’ll want to dive in head first to this ginger lime beurre blanc. It’s pure heaven. A beurre blanc sauce is basically white wine, cream, and butter so it’s hardly light but the French know what they’re doing with sauces. A little of this goes a long way and adds such a…

Simple Roasted Potatoes

I’m half Irish, half German. There is no amount of potatoes I cannot take down. I eat potatoes early four or five days a week so it’s startling that there are hardly any recipes for potatoes here on The Rose Table, probably because I don’t consider any of my potato cooking methods recipes! But I’m making an effort to bring…

Pumpkin Sauce

It never ceases to amaze me how many dishes are served with pumpkin sauce in the Caribbean. It really doesn’t even taste like pumpkin by American standards. It reads more carrot to me. Either way, it’s absolutely fantastic alongside any fried fish dish, such as my Coconut Shrimp. I made this for my Disney Dinners:…
