The World’s Best Alfredo Sauce

I know this is a strong statement but this is the best alfredo sauce in the world. The secret ingredient? Gruyere cheese. Gruyere takes a little longer to melt than parmesan but it’s worth the patience. Gruyere adds a nutty flavor and ultra creamy, luscious texture to this sauce. I think we can all agree…

Looking for an easy slow cooker chicken recipe that’s fancy enough for company? You’ve found it! Let me start by saying: I am not a big slow cooker person, but I vowed to use my slow cooker more this summer, when I don’t want to stand outside and grill nor heat up my house with…

Vanilla No-Bake Cheesecake

In the heat of summer, I rarely turn on my oven. I get it from my mother, who cooks very seasonally. I thought everyone cooked this way but I was wrong. It never ceases to amaze me how many Texans will roast a chicken in the dead of summer. Not me! I live in Dallas…

Chicken and Waffles with Pimento Cheese and Bourbon Maple Syrup

The ultimate comfort food I make Belgian waffles all the time. I make chicken tenders all the time. But I had never served them together prior to recipe testing for my Kentucky Derby Party. Southern food isn’t really my thing – Californian, Greek, Mediterranean, and Caribbean food is my thing – but I absolutely love…

Sausage Flight

A fancy way to eat a simple dinner I’m never not in the mood for sausage. It’s a running joke in my family! My mom will call me and ask if I want to come over for dinner and I’ll say, “Oh thanks, but-” and she’ll mention it’s sausage and I tell her I’m on…

Käsespätzle

A cheesy German noodle casserole that’s quite possibly the best dish I’ve ever made Käsespätzle is hands down my favorite German dish of all time. I know that’s a strong statement, but it’s true. I’m half German and adore German food. I used to eat Käsespätzle at my beloved Greenwoods in Fort Worth every week when I…

Cauldron Queso

I realized in horror last week that I have basically no Halloween content here on The Rose Table, which all of my friends would find positively shocking. I adore Halloween so I wanted to rectify the lack of Halloween recipes by adding a few of my favorites. I’m delighted to present you with a total…

It’s quite possibly the creamiest mac ‘n’ cheese you’ll ever have. In Texas, you most often see baked mac ‘n’ cheese with a crunchy bread crumb topping. Since I was…

Sliders

Sweet Hawaiian rolls are the perfect complement to a juicy slider I don’t know why on earth everyone these days makes meatloaf when they’re trying to make burgers. Please help me spread the word: you do not need eggs and bread crumbs in burgers. That is just a burger-shaped meatloaf. All you need for a great burger…

Tzatziki

A healthy Greek yogurt sauce with cucumber and garlic Tzatziki is another wonderful Greek speciality: it’s healthy, garlicky, and super easy to make. If you can stir, you can make tzatziki. The only challenge is grating the cucumber, which is imperative for a thick tzatziki. You can use this as a dip with veggies, as a…
