Mini Chicken Salad Croissants

Need lunch inspiration? Make adorable mini chicken salad croissants! I came up with this recipe for Disney Dinners: Mary Poppins Returns but I’ve been making this chicken salad for nearly a decade. I use leftover grilled chicken and twice the amount of grapes that most people use, plus Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise, which lets…

Chocolate Cinnamon Cake Roll

I love making cake rolls. They’re so fun! This is a great cake recipe to have on half during the holidays. The cinnamon isn’t overpowering but gives it a lovely fall, fireside feeling. Cake rolls are not as hard as you might think. You just bake a sponge cake in a jelly roll pan, flip it…

Cheddar Potato Leek Soup

Autumn Burrata Salad

Looking for the perfect fall salad? This is it! With butternut squash, pomegranate arils, and pumpkin seeds, this salad is as healthy as it is delicious.

The Rose Table’s French Onion Soup

“The best french onion soup I’ve ever eaten.” – My dad It’s finally happened. I’ve finally perfected French onion soup and it only took me nine years! I have my mom and leftovers to thank.

Oktoberfest Board

The perfect fall board full of German goodies ‘Tis the season for pretzel bread! Who says a board has to just have cheese and crackers? I’ve filled this Oktoberfest board with sausage medallions, crispy potatoes, and German quark (pronounced “kuh-vark”). Haven’t heard of quark? It’s a soft German cheese that’s a bit like a cream cheese-sour…

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…

Dark Chocolate Maple Truffles

These are not just the best truffles I’ve ever made. These are the best truffles I’ve ever had. They’re smooth and creamy and have incredible maple flavor. These would make lovely gifts and would be gorgeous on a holiday cookie plate! I decorated them with edible gold to give them a beautiful sparkle. They’re absolutely amazing…

Watermelon Feta Checkerboard Salad

A whimsical summertime salad This is a great way to impress you guests! There’s just something about watermelon, mint, and feta cheese. I grow English mint in my garden and just swoon over this flavor combination. As for the balsamic reduction, you can either reduce balsamic vinegar in a saucepan over medium heat or buy a…

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….
