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…

Bacon Flight

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Smithfield. ‘Tis the season to be eat, drink, and be merry! I’ve partnered with Smithfield to share a fun and easy entertaining idea this holiday season: a bacon flight. What says party faster than bacon? I roasted slices of Smithfield Thick Cut Hickory Smoked…

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…

Crockpot Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Creamy mac ‘n’ cheese with just five minutes of prep! If you’re looking for a super simple, hands-off mac ‘n’ cheese recipe, this is it. 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…

Grilled Potatoes

One of my all-time favorite side dishes! I can’t even count how many times I’ve grilled potatoes. Hundreds? Thousands, even? It’s one of my go-to side dishes when I’m grilling. It’s so easy, I don’t even think twice when I’m doing it. This is one of my many non-recipe recipes in which I don’t include…

Lamb Lollipops

These delightful lamb lollipops take just 15 minutes! I adore lamb. I wish more Americans did. Greece knows what it’s doing with lamb and I paid close attention at the Greek Food Festival in Dallas last year where I ate the most incredible lamb lollipops. I asked the guys what they did and they said,…

Feta Cheese Sauce

An easy and delicious sauce that’s delicious on grilled meat! I would swan dive right into this sauce if it was socially acceptable. Feta cheese is one of my great loves. It’s been a favorite ingredient of mine since I was a teenager. I can’t ever get enough feta. If something has feta on a…

Chicken Gyro

Some of the best meals are so simple. I truly could eat a gyro for lunch every day. When I studied abroad in Greece, I almost did! They’re filling and crunchy and creamy and so delicious. The garlicky (and healthy!) tzatziki sauce just makes it! Chicken gyros come together very quickly. Make the tzatziki sauce…

Pineapple Pork Skewers

I have long loved skewers. If it’s on a stick, I’m probably a fan. If you love sweet and savory together, you’ll love this easy dish that can be used either as an appetizer or main course. I served these skewers at Disney Dinners: Moana as the appetizer. Pork is popular in Hawaii (sorry, Pua!)…
