Spanakopita

If there has ever been a most-requested recipe on The Rose Table, this is it. It was in the background of my Village Salad photos and I’ve been bombarded with messages ever since asking me to post “that Greek pie.” Spanakopita is a spinach and feta pie with layers and layers of crispy phyllo. You…

Squash Blossom Pasta Salad

This pasta salad is amazing. It has fresh summer tomatoes, creamy feta cheese, and loads of fresh basil. It’s lemony with a bit of crunch from pine nuts and fresh cucumber. It’s perfect with grilled chicken in the summertime! If you’re here for a pasta salad but don’t have squash blossoms, make it without! If you’re…

The Best Southern Tomato Pie

Is this not the most delicious looking savory pie you’ve EVER seen? It’s topped with real southern pimento cheese for Pete’s sake. Make this in the summertime when you have really gorgeous tomatoes.

French White Wine Mussels

How to make German Spätzle

This German girl knows spätzle. These little pillows of noodle goodness take just a few minutes to prepare and don’t require an expensive pasta maker.

Beef Stew

I know I’ve said this a million times, but I really am just a simple Irish lass at heart. I could eat a hearty potato dish pretty much every night of the week. I got the most incredible beef from Organic 5-2 Farms and was inspired to make a traditional beef stew, with direction from…

Orange Honey Pheasant

“Bring me some pheasant, keep it on the bone” Pheasant stuffed with earthy rosemary and sage, juicy orange, and spicy garlic cloves get an orange-honey butter treatment to up the flavor profile. This delightful fowl recipe is made even better when served with champagne beurre blanc! I learned how to cook pheasant for my SIX the…

Baked Honey Chicken Wings

Well this is just about the best dish I ever pulled out of my oven. Lord, have mercy, these are amazing! I turned into an animal eating these. I couldn’t control myself. I’m so glad that only my mom was here to witness me tucking into half a sheet of chicken wings. These are out…
