Fettuccine with Mussels and Bacon

We’re taking a trip to Italy today on The Rose Table with a pasta dish inspired by my favorite chef, The Tuscan Gun. This is a very quick recipe. I’ve made this many times for dinner. It takes about twenty minutes. I start with the bacon, set a pot of salted water to boil, then…

Charcuterie Cones

Could this be any cuter! I’m squealing just looking at the pictures. A couple of years ago, I made homemade bread cones for Disney Dinners: Cars because Disney’s California Adventure sells the “cozy cones” at the Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land. 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….

Best Ever Cheese Fondue

I don’t want to oversell it, but this is the best fondue recipe ever. I’m a huge fan of fondue. Honestly it’s probably one of the first things I learned how to cook! I had many fondue parties in college even. I’ve been to countless fondue restaurants and I’ve made so many different dishes but…

Mama Rose Table’s Lasagna

The best lasagna recipe ever You know how most of my recipes are super simple and dirty as few of dishes as possible? This is not one of those recipes. In fact, I take absolutely zero credit for this recipe. My mom, who is a wonderful cook, makes the best lasagna in the world. Seriously. It’s so…

Chicken Noodle Soup

There’s something so comforting about chicken noodle soup. It’s a classic for a reason. This is a bowl o’ health: celery, carrots, onion, garlic, herbs, and chicken, oh my! It’s a huge pet peeve of mine when chicken noodle soup has too few of noodles. You can see my recipe does not have such a…

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

What’s more cozy than muffins rising in the oven? I’m a bit of a muffin snob and damn, these are good muffins. They’re moist, they’re peppered with mini chocolate chips, and they’re so, so soft. I also think they’re the perfect size! Monster, bakery-style muffins are quite in fashion right now but I much prefer…
