Sausage Flight

A fancy way to eat a simple dinner I’m never not in the mood for sausage. It’s a running joke in my family! My mom will call me and ask if I want to come over for dinner and I’ll say, “Oh thanks, but-” and she’ll mention it’s sausage and I tell her I’m on…

Grilled Banana Boats

This has got to be the most fun dessert to make ever. It takes all of six minutes, zero prep time, and is as much of an activity as it is dessert. The best part is that you can customize them a million different ways! Young or old, these are a blast to build and…

Mustard Cream Pork Chops and Gnocchi

This is one of my favorite quick dinners. I make this dish all the time and finally took a minute to photograph it so I can post the recipe for you. This is really so simple. You cook the chops for five minutes on each side, deglaze the pan with wine, lower the heat, add…

Chambord Brownies

Can a dessert be sexy? If so, this is a sexy brownie. They’re rich, fudge-y, and have a deep, dark chocolate flavor. They also come together in an absolute snap since you don’t need softened butter. Not that I tried the batter, but it’s delicious too. (Yes, I’m that person. No I do not appear…

Caprese Salad

I make so many dishes like this that I don’t even consider a recipe but it’s occurred to me lately that it’s shockingly difficult to find basics like this on the internet. The key here and with so many great dishes is the ingredients. I only make this when I can get great tomatoes, high…

Chilled Cucumber Soup

I could not love this recipe any more. I spent years whipping up variations of chilled cucumber soup and this is hand’s down my favorite. Creamy and flavorful with crispy cherrywood smoked bacon, this is really everything I want in a summer dinner! This is an especially great recipe for summer entertaining because you make…

The Rose Table’s Roasted Chicken

“Baby, it’s cold outside!” I don’t know about you, but cold weather makes me want to roast things. My roasted chicken will warm you from the inside and heat your house – it roasts for 90 minutes! Pop this in the oven, pour a glass of Gewürtztraminer, and crack open a good book. Or, if you’re hosting, throw this…

Blackcurrant Brie Bites

You may recognize these from my Christmas party, when I made these using homemade cranberry sauce. You could really do so many variations of them using whatever jam you like. They’re so simple, it’s hardly even fair to call it a recipe! You could easily swap out blackberry jam for the blackcurrant. The rosemary adds a…

Cranberry Brie Bites with Homemade Cranberry Sauce

This post was updated on 11/21/18 with better photography In need of a Christmas appetizer that takes a mere five minutes of prep? Make the homemade cranberry sauce up to a week before you want to make these little packets of Christmas cheer. Then all you have to do is plop some with a cube of Brie…

Homemade Raspberry Almond Popsicles

  This recipe just screams summer. This was my very first time making homemade popsicles after commandeering my mom’s popsicle mold. (Sorry, Mom.) What a fun treat!The almond extract complements the raspberry flavor rather than overpowers it for just a hint of almond. These are crazy healthy and delightfully tart. If you’re not a fan of tart…
