Sausage Medallion Pasta

I have made this pasta a thousand times. Back when I was twenty and twenty-two, I didn’t have much of a budget for entertaining but still wanted to have my friends over for dinner so I almost always made pasta because it’s an inexpensive way to feed people. Nine out of ten times, I made…

Lemon Skillet Chicken

This is an exciting day on The Rose Table! I am finally publishing my Lemon Skillet Chicken recipe. My mom taught me how to make this when I was a teenager. It’s the first chicken dinner I ever learned how to cook in my college apartment! This was literally the main way I cooked chicken…

Smothered Cheese Fries

It’s not always fresh garden vegetables and from scratch cakes around here. Looking for a quick, delicious recipe to satisfy your cheese fry craving? You came to the right place!

Sun-dried Tomato Chicken and Bacon Pasta

I’ve made so many versions of this over the years but this is the best. It’s creamy, with a bright flavor from the fresh herbs and sun-dried tomatoes, and the chicken is so tender.

Charcuterie Cones

For my dinner, I filled the cones with mac ‘n’ cheese a la…

Loaded Focaccia

Today in the kitchen we’re taking a trip to Italy! My loaded focaccia is cheesy, flavorful, and easy to make. With mozzarella, homemade pesto, olives, and tomatoes, this focaccia is a dream Italian lunch. I’ve spent a lot of time this past year virtually traveling through YouTube and blogs. I was reading old Europe posts…

The Best Beef Queso

My friend Jason makes the best queso I’ve ever had. Trust me, I’m Texan. Just look at it. Don’t you want to jump in and swim around?! He was kind enough to share his recipe with me so I could share it with all of you! It’s beefy, it’s cheesy, and it’s easy to make….
