Steak Quesadillas

I make quesadillas every single lunch and yet no recipes appear on The Rose Table. The reason? I never measure! But in an effort to bring you more of my everyday foods, I’m writing this up sans measurements. I especially love making quesadillas for lunch when I have a little leftover chicken or steak. On…

Greek Tabbouleh Salad

Words cannot even describe how much I love this recipe. Let’s put it this way: for about eight years, I ate this for lunch most weeks. I’ve fallen out of the habit in recent years but in a quest to bring you some of my all-time favorite recipes, I’ve finally written up my recipe for…

Tabbouleh

I just adore tabbouleh. It’s healthy, flavorful, easy to make, and goes with so many different things. What’s not to love? If you grow mint and/or parsley, this is a wonderful way to use those fresh garden herbs! This bulgur wheat salad is the perfect dish to make in the summertime when you have an…

Zucchini Boats

How have I never made zucchini boats until now?! They’re so delicious and quite fun to make. It’s also a great way to stretch a pound of ground beef – you get six servings with this recipe! If you grow zucchini, this is the perfect use for your your summer harvest! I will definitely be…

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I’ll never understand why more people don’t love Brussels sprouts! They’re unbelievably good for you and when roasted, they take on this wonderful caramelized flavor. These take about thirty minutes start to plate and are a perfect, healthy side dish for winter! These are really simply to make. You’ll lose a couple of outer leaves…

Provençal Ratatouille

Today for Travel Tuesday we’re heading to France. Disney made a particularly artsy version of ratatouille famous but the original dish is much more rustic. Ratatouille originated in Provence, specifically in Nice, and is much more like a stew than the famous dish Americans recognize. Ratatouille is very simple to make and could not be…

How to Freeze Pesto

I went on a whole pesto freezing kick due to the abundance of fresh basil in my garden. I couldn’t bear to waste it! I made jars and jars of pesto to freeze for a rainy day and even froze some individual portions for sauce in a pinch. Here’s how to freeze pesto. What You’ll…

Blueberry Salad with Maple Vinaigrette

This is the perfect salad for the end of summer/start of fall, when blueberries are still great but you’re in a maple mood. It’s so simple too: just greens, blueberries, herbed Marcona almonds, feta cheese, and a homemade maple vinaigrette. I didn’t include measurements because I never measure when I’m making salad. Let’s talk about…
