Autumn Dinner in the Garden

Who says autumn colors have to be red and orange? I had my friend Irene over for a socially distanced dinner in the garden on Friday and set a nontraditional fall table that I’m in love with! I used my mint green tablecloth (which you might recognize from my Princess and the Frog party or my…

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…

Maple Bar Cookies

Maple lovers, rejoice! This cookie is for you. These maple bar cookies have melty chocolate chips, toasted pecans, and a fantastic maple glaze, and it’s a one-bowl recipe baked in a 9×13 pan! Gotta love that. I adapted this recipe from my M&M Bar Cookie Recipe. I love the simplicity of bar cookies. One pan,…

Beef Stew

I know I’ve said this a million times, but I really am just a simple Irish lass at heart. I could eat a hearty potato dish pretty much every night of the week. I got the most incredible beef from Organic 5-2 Farms and was inspired to make a traditional beef stew, with direction from…

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…

Homemade Fairytale Pumpkin Purée

Making homemade pumpkin purée might just be my new favorite thing to do in the kitchen. Not only is it incredibly fun (and thrifty!) but also makes the house smell amazing. It only takes about 15 minutes of hands-on time to get the best tasting pumpkin purée of your life. Are you ready? I know…

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…
