Mediterranean Crockpot Chicken

Looking for an easy slow cooker chicken recipe that’s fancy enough for company? You’ve found it! Let me start by saying: I am not a big slow cooker person, but I vowed to use my slow cooker more this summer, when I don’t want to stand outside and grill nor heat up my house with…

Mexican Zucchini

The perfect summer side dish! I love recipes that don’t require any measuring. That’s my favorite way to cook! This dish is crunchy, flavorful, and refreshing on a warm day. It also looks damn fun!

Be Mango Kumana Chicken

An easy, flavorful weeknight chicken dish  This dish comes together crazy fast. Twenty minutes, tops. (Just make sure you pull your chicken out of the fridge sooner. Never cook cold meat straight from the fridge.) It’s bursting with juicy mango flavor, a bit of heat from the Kumana sauce, and the freshness that comes from…

Pineapple Yogurt Bowl

Go on a backyard vacation with my easy pineapple yogurt bowls!

Veggie Platter

Don’t knock a veggie platter even at the fanciest of gatherings. Why? So many party dishes are rich and cheesy that many guests welcome some raw veggies to lighten things up. Paired with doctored up hummus and ranch (my homemade tzatziki would be wonderful too!), this is an easy thing to put together. I served…

Lemon Garlic Hummus

This is a method for grilling sliced zucchini. The Rose Table is in no way affiliated with The Walt Disney Company. Photography courtesy of My…

Chicken Salad

There are a million ways to make chicken salad. For me, the key ingredient in chicken salad is red grapes, which is why I add twice as many as other people. All you really need for fantastic chicken salad after that is toasted almonds, fresh herbs, and a lemon-yogurt dressing. I should add a disclaimer:…
