Mini Cheesecakes

This is the perfect summer dessert! Baked at just 275 degrees for 20 minutes, these mini cheesecakes won’t heat up the house. I love to make these topped with whipped cream and juicy summer berries. One easy thing about this recipe is that the crust is a Nilla Wafer. You heard me! What a life…

Blueberry Hand Pies

What screams summer more than mini blueberry hand pies?! These would be perfect for a picnic or to take out on a boat, but they’re also amazing warm from the oven served with vanilla ice cream. They’re also perfect for the 4th of July! I’m sure you guys were expecting some sort of epic blueberry…

Bacon Blue Cheese Sliders

Up your slider game with creamy blue cheese and crispy thick-cut bacon! Add tomato slices and you’ve got a “red white and blue cheese” slider! I’m a purist when it comes to burgers. I believe the best burger involves high quality meat, a bit of salt, and epic toppings. I used Ashcraft beef I picked…

Chocolate Berry Hill Cake

A new version of one of my all-time favorite cakes!  My favorite German cake involves chocolate, a mound of my famous whipped cream, and bananas. Here I’ve swapped out the bananas for blueberries and chopped strawberries for a lovely red-white-and-blue chocolate cake. It’s the perfect cake to make when you’ve got gorgeous summer berries on…

You’ve come to the right place!  Adding fruit to salad is something I’ve been passionate about since I was in my college apartment. (If you’ve never had my Strawberry Salmon Salad, I highly recommend it!) This combination is…

Perfect Grilled Chicken

I’m not good at a lot of things but I’m damn good at grilling chicken. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that I am passionate about grilling chicken. When I’m at a restaurant and order something with grilled chicken and they set a white hunk in front of me, I want to…

Grilled Chicken Tenders

It’s wild that this has never appeared on The Rose Table before because I swear I make this every week! If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know how passionate I am about chicken tenders. They have a bad rep I suppose because the frozen fried children’s food is also called chicken…

Perfect Grilled Flank Steak

I can’t take any credit for this recipe. My mom taught me how to grill a perfect flank steak! It comes out perfect every time. Want a stellar appetizer? Make my Flank Steak and Gorgonzola Crostini!

Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders

Brown sugar, maple syrup, dijon mustard, bacon, chicken. Need I say more? Oh and they’re served on a stick! Everything is more fun on a stick, don’t you think? And I think we all need a little more fun in our lives. This is really a delightful way to grill chicken. The chicken gets so tender…
