This Mediterranean orzo salad with feta is owning summer in our house. I can’t stop making it, my family and friends basically beg for it, and after a bunch of tweaking and experimenting, this orzo salad is damn near perfection. Also, it’s really really easy to make.
I started making layered breakfast parfaits recently and, friends, let me tell you. They are giving me life! Today I am sharing these insanely delicious peanut butter breakfast parfaits, which you can make ahead for the week and grab on the go. Basically, these are the perfect summer breakfast! No heating up the kitchen, plus they’re loaded with protein and seriously delicious.
It’s officially summer, friends, which means it’s also family reunion season! I always loved our family reunion as a kid. The sack races, swimming all day and, of course, the food! Today I’ve teamed up with READ® Salads to share my easy reunion-ready German potato breakfast casserole. You’re going to love it!
There’s a restaurant here in our little city where they serve the most amazing portobello burger. It’s so good that it inspired me years ago to starting grilling portobello burgers at home. Today I’m teaming up with SOLA® to share what might just be the perfect summer grilling recipe – my portobello burgers topped with grilled peaches and pickled red onions!
Is anyone else a complete sucker for a peanut butter and chocolate combination? I seriously can’t get enough, which is why I’m particularly fond of these no-bake homemade peanut butter cups! And you know what’s crazy? They’re made with crackers!
One of the most popular requests I receive (both here, on Instagram and from my friends and family) is for more party appetizers! People love an easy party appetizer recipe, so I decided I would take a moment today to round up 21 of the best summer appetizers perfect for all your upcoming summer parties.
It’s Monday, so it feels like a good day to talk about poutine. Vegetarian poutine, specifically, made with an easy homemade vegetarian gravy that will leave you wanting for none of the flavor you love about gravy. Some of you may be wondering, “What the heck is poutine?!” In short, it’s a Canadian dish featuring fries layered with cheese curd and then smothered in gravy. Usually it’s beef gravy, but often it’s chicken gravy. Today we’re making it with vegetarian gravy so that your vegetarian pals (like me) can get down with the poutine goodness, too.
I’m sure I’m not alone in being pretty convinced that tacos are the greatest food inventions ever. As a vegetarian I’m always playing around with different variations of veggie tacos, which I swear are better than meat-based tacos even if you’re an omnivore. Here I’ve rounded up a dozen vegetarian tacos totally worthy of your Taco Tuesday (or your Meatless Monday) dinner needs! (And since I love veggie tacos so much, you can find 15 additional veggie tacos here!)
We have so many parties coming up and I’m 100% living for it, friends! We’re hosting three days in a row this weekend, a combination of cocktails and full scale dinners so I’m making my lists and prepping today so I’m good to go. Are you hosting this week? I vote you skip fancy hors d’oeuvres and go right for an epic Christmas cookie board served alongside champagne. That sad old cookie platter has nothing on us.
Fact: I kind of hate marshmallows. Additional fact: Marshmallows are so much better when they’re homemade! And in our house where I keep all the fixings for a hot cocoa bar on hand all winter long, homemade marshmallows have a starring role in the show. Have you ever made them before? They’re easier than you think! I’m sharing my homemade marshmallow recipe (specifically, a peppermint marshmallow recipe) that you and your kids will love! Even you, fellow marshmallow hater.
It’s cookie exchange day, friends! Every year my blogger besties and I host a virtual cookie exchange, going so far as referring to ourselves as the Christmas Cookie Squad. In short, below I’ve linked up every single Christmas cookie recipe you could possibly want this season, perfect for hosting or bringing to your own cookie exchange parties. I’m jumping into the game with these fudge dipped double chocolate peppermint cookies. They are melt in your mouth good and worth the tiny bit of effort it takes to crush up some candy canes! Join in the fun on Instagram with our hashtag #christmascookiesquad!
Recently our neighbor and BFF Nikki perfected the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe. They’re the pillowy soft, melt in your mouth chocolate chip cookie that people crave and beg you to make over and over again. (We have. And she has.) This cookie recipe was entirely inspired by said perfect cookies. I think of them as the slightly more sophisticated older cousin – dark chocolate chip toffee cookies with pecans.
