Lemon Lavender Buttermilk Scones

Scones are so quintessentially British, aren’t they? So of course I had to serve some at Disney Dinners: Mary Poppins Returns! I already had four variations of this buttermilk scone here on The Rose Table but came up with a brand new one for this tea.  I chose lavender to represent Mary Poppins, who is…

Blueberry French Toast

Brioche french toast smothered with warm blueberry sauce and served with lemon whipped cream French toast is such a fun Sunday treat to me but I have a rule: I never both unless I have brioche. I’m a brioche french toast kind of girl. It takes just a few minutes to make but I just…

Mini Lemon Blueberry Cheesecakes

A bright and vibrant miniature dessert! This is not a new recipe to me but it is a new recipe to The Rose Table. I’ve been making these mini cheesecakes for years topped with jam but I’ve updated it with my homemade blueberry sauce, which I just published last week. This is a great make-ahead…

Lemon Garlic Hummus

Homemade hummus bursting with bright lemon flavor If you’re looking for a healthy, easy, fast snack recipe, you’ve come to the right place! This is elegant enough to serve to company but healthy enough to nosh on by yourself. I love it with cucumber slices, tomatoes, and pita chips but you could also serve it…

Lemon Blueberry Cake

This really might be one of the most special cakes I’ve ever made. Tart with freshly squeezed lemon juice and bursting with blueberries, this layer cake smells like pure heaven. You don’t have to frost this to be a “naked cake” like I did here but the frosting was gorgeous as-is and I didn’t want…

Rosemary Grilled Salmon

Practically everyone who’s had dinner at my house has had my Rosemary Grilled Salmon. I make it all the time because I don’t have to think twice about it and it always turns out perfect. This recipe easily doubles or halves. You can even make just one packet for yourself! I often pair this main…

Parmesan Kale Chips

Y’all should have seen the horrified look on my dad’s face when I told him I was serving kale at my Christmas party! Don’t be fooled: these may be on the healthy side of party appetizers, but they are addictive. There wasn’t a single kale chip left after A Mistletoe and Holly Affair! I don’t…

How to Enjoy Fresh Herbs All Winter

I can’t take credit for this idea but I also can’t remember where I saw it. I know a Facebook page I’d “liked” shared this, but I can’t remember who. I do, however, remember being completely gobsmacked by the idea. Slaps forehead. Of course! It’s so simple! Freeze herbs in olive oil and pop them out…

Simple Summer Salads

I love salads. I often find myself defending salads. Why does salad have a reputation for being boring? Salad is anything but boring! Every bite is a different combination of ingredients. I eat salad several nights a week for dinner because it’s fast and easy. Here are some of my favorites to inspire your own…

First Zucchini Harvest, Served with Lemon-Garlic Panko Crusted Tilapia

My first home-grown zucchini went from garden to table in less than half an hour. You can’t beat that freshness! I’ve never had zucchini that was so creamy before. I adore the bright notes of sun-ripened, garden-fresh tomatoes, the perfect companion for Summer zucchini. If you’ve never had tilapia from Whole Foods, you’re missing out. Whole…
