The best carrot cake you’ll ever have I told myself I wasn’t going to bake today but I binge watched an entire season of Hart of Dixie around 4 pm I thought, this is the South and it’s a Sunday, I need to bake something! I had these giant carrots just begging to become carrot cake (I…

Orange Whole Grilled Chicken

Is there anything more fun than putting a whole chicken on the grill? I absolutely love buying whole chickens – this beauty cost me just $4 – but when the temperature starts rising, I don’t want to run my oven for an hour and a half to make my beloved Roasted Chicken. So I ask…

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bundt Cake

I know it’s not fall but I love pumpkin and I have long thought it should be enjoyed year-round in the states like it is in the Caribbean. Plus, this is my website and I make the rules! This bundt cake is fantastic. It’s moist with a fabulous pumpkin flavor that isn’t masked but pumpkin…

“Bring me some pheasant, keep it on the bone” Pheasant stuffed with earthy rosemary and sage, juicy orange, and spicy garlic cloves get an orange-honey butter treatment to up the flavor profile.

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.

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

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…

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 maple vinaigrette just takes a minute to whisk together (or throw all of the ingredients in a jar and shake it) and makes a huge difference. The heat…

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. My mom’s suggestion of a teaspoon of sugar caramelized the onions so perfectly and my open bottle of champagne in…

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…
