Rack of Lamb

Why have I not been serving rack of lamb to guests all these years? It’s SO simple to make and is so impressive. I hilariously came up with this dish for my Jurassic Park dinner party. My dad suggested rack of lamb for the main course because of the bones. It’s the perfect dinner for…

Creamy Chicken Cheesy Soup

This is one of those times where a dish came out way better than I imagined it would. I had an idea of what I wanted to do but wow, is this good. So comforting! I kept making “mmm” noises like a cartoon character while eating this and yes, I admit, I ate a second…

Mama Rose Table’s Baked Vermicelli

 It’s your lucky day because my mama has perfected her baked vermicelli and she is letting me share the recipe with all of you! This is unbelievably good. It’s a little similar to lasagna in that it’s a layered, baked pasta with ricotta but it’s a little easier and quicker to make than lasagna.  You’ll…

Orzo Sausage Soup

Looking for a thirty minute soup that will make you feel all warm and cozy? You’ve come to the right place! This one-pot dinner could not be easier to make. It’s the kind of dinner you could easily make for company while drinking wine, for instance. It’s that simple! You basically brown onion, garlic, and…

Fettuccine Alfredo

My alfredo sauce is simply the best. It’s beyond delicious and cheesy, with a little garlic, a lot of gruyere cheese (so melty! so nutty!), and a hint of freshly grated nutmeg. (Just trust me!) It’s divine.  I don’t actually often cook fettuccine but I was inspired by Kate Winslet’s line in The Holiday, “Shall…

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! Here I’ve topped waffle fries (from Sprouts, which by the way, tasted exactly like Jack in the Box curly fries) with my incredible cheese sauce. Fun fact:…

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. Throw in some bacon and it’s over-the-top delicious. I’ve also added spinach to this in the pasta, which is also delicious!…
