Cheddar Potato Leek Soup

I was not planning on writing about potato soup this week. I made dinner on a cold night, ate a spoonful, and marched straight back into the kitchen to snap photos because this was too fantastic not to post on The Rose Table! I adore potato leek soup. This is the creamy cheddar potato leek soup…

Graveyard Pasta

The perfect Halloween dinner dish! Remember how I said that my alfredo sauce would be so fun at Halloween? I never say anything that I don’t mean. Here it is, all dressed up as a spooky dinner that takes ten minutes to make! I came up with this sinister pasta for Disney Dinners: Haunted Mansion…

Easy Pumpkin Pasta

The best pumpkin pasta sauce I’ve ever had. This is the most incredible pumpkin pasta sauce. Wow. It comes together as quickly as it takes for noodles to boil so make this when you’ve only got twenty minutes to spare and want comfort food. Full of pumpkin puree, chopped fresh sage, parmesan, cinnamon, cream cheese, and…

The Rose Table’s Favorite Salad

Let’s get one thing clear: I will never be too fancy for this salad. This is my favorite salad of all time. My California mama cooked our family a delicious, healthy, fresh dinner every night of my life. Fast food was very rare at the Watson house, as was fried food, but she made the…

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…
