Grilled Chicken Caprese

An impressive weeknight recipe that takes just fifteen minutes! My regular readers know how much I love fast and easy recipes that require little clean up. I’ve been making this crowd pleaser all summer long, particularly when I have really good tomatoes from the farmers market. I often pick up meat from the farmers market…

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!)…

Ahi Tuna Poke

Poke (rhymes with okay) is a popular dish in Hawaii that consists of super fresh raw fish tossed with sushi rice, and whatever extras you’d like. It comes together in a snap if you have chilled rice in your fridge. (You can use room temperature rice, but I prefer cold.) I served ahi tuna poke…

How to Grill Pizza

I remember watching early episodes of Extra Virgin on Cooking Channel and thinking, someday I’m going to be as cool as Gabrielle Corcos and grill pizza. Well I may not have a pizza oven yet but I did finally grill pizza! This post was sponsored by Rao’s Homemade. Thank you for supporting The Rose Table! Last weekend…

Grilled Lobster Tails

This is hands down one of the best dishes I’ve ever made and it isn’t even difficult. I promise! I’m going to walk you through this. Don’t be scared. I know lobster sounds expensive but just like everything else, it’s much less expensive to prepare at home. For this you’ll want to buy lobster tails, which are…

Deconstructed Chicken Salad

A whimsical dinner that’s easier than it looks! I just love simple food that looks fancy. Have you ever grilled grapes before? It’s so satisfying. It takes just minutes and they become jammy from the heat and add a juicy smokiness to grilled chicken. It isn’t difficult at all so don’t be scared! The Rose…

Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry

Stir fry was one of the very first things I learned how to cook in my college apartment. I was hesitant to cook meat at first so I used pre-cooked chicken, making this a great gateway recipe for beginners! I’ve since upgraded my stir fry with homemade teriyaki sauce and crunchy sesame seeds. The Rose…

Beef Ragout

Is there anything more comforting than a hearty beef stew? I’ve been tweaking this recipe for months to bring you the most delicious beef ragout for Disney Dinners: Beauty and the Beast. This is a great dinner party recipe because it cooks for hours so you can do all of the work in the afternoon…

Mustard Cream Pork Chops and Gnocchi

This is one of my favorite quick dinners. I make this dish all the time and finally took a minute to photograph it so I can post the recipe for you. This is really so simple. You cook the chops for five minutes on each side, deglaze the pan with wine, lower the heat, add…
