Bacon Cantaloupe Soup

Here me out… This is for all the chilled soup lovers out there! I live on chilled soups in August. After all, I live in Texas! It’s 100 degrees outside and I refuse to turn on my oven when it’s that hot. My favorite chilled soups are Chilled Cucumber Soup, Chilled Cantaloupe Soup, and Gazpacho….

Mediterranean Crockpot Chicken

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…

Gazpacho

What, pray tell, is more refreshing on a hot summer day than a bowl of gazpacho? The Spanish no-cook dish is perfect for summertime when tomatoes are in season and you can’t be bothered to heat the house with the oven. It’s common to use soaked, leftover bread as an ingredient blended into gazpacho but…

Kissing Cherries Chicken

Airline chicken topped with the most incredible cherry sauce over a bed of rosemary roasted potatoes  This dish is a winner. If you’re looking for the perfect summertime chicken dish, you’ve come to the right place. (Technically, you could make this all winter with high-quality frozen cherries, if your heart desires.) Here a fresh cherry sauce is spooned…

Kree Blood Pasta

The greatest alfredo sauce in the history of pasta This is one of the most whimsical dishes I’ve come up with to date. When Marvel Studios approached me about a Captain Marvel dinner party, I wondered how on earth I could come up with dishes that make sense. I immediately thought of alfredo sauce when I…

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…

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

An easy, healthy weeknight dinner People overthink lettuce wraps. This is a simple recipe, like most recipes on The Rose Table, but it packs a lot of flavor punch. The peanut sauce will knock your socks off! You could add rice to this if you want, or serve it on the side. The key here…

Be Mango Kumana Chicken

An easy, flavorful weeknight chicken dish  This dish comes together crazy fast. Twenty minutes, tops. (Just make sure you pull your chicken out of the fridge sooner. Never cook cold meat straight from the fridge.) It’s bursting with juicy mango flavor, a bit of heat from the Kumana sauce, and the freshness that comes from…

Spinach Feta Pasta Salad

I wasn’t planning on photographing yesterday’s lunch but it was too delicious and I just had to share. I will be making this again and again and again. Full of veggies and crunchy almonds and tossed with a super light lemon zest dressing, this pasta salad won’t weigh you down! This takes minutes to prepare,…

Grilled Ratatouille Pasta Salad

An easy pasta salad inspired by one of my favorite French dishes! Ratatouille is one of my favorite French dishes. The simple stew has just a few ingredients: eggplant, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, parsley, and basil. I’ve taken some of those ingredients and turned them into a delicious pasta salad that can be made ahead for easy entertaining….

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…
