I love an easy recipe for summer parties, easy weeknight dinners and just generally maximizing my time spent enjoying summer versus being tethered to the kitchen. This fuss-free tomato tart recipe is just such a dish!
Every year my uncle grows corn on a patch of land that was once a part of my grandparents’ dairy farm. Each summer we find ourselves saddled down with huge baskets full of corn and my favorite way to use up our portion is to make this buttery garlic parmesan grilled corn on the cob recipe!
Remember the bad rap that brussels sprouts used to have? They were often served mushy, overcooked and therefore tangy and bitter. It turns out, we were cooking them wrong all along! This easy oven roasted brussels sprouts recipes will make a believer out of just about anyone and they’re so simple to make!
Bob and I are both partial to a good potato salad recipe. It’s our go-to picnic food all summer, and we make it a bunch of different ways. This red potato salad recipe might just be our ultimate favorite. It is the classic potato salad recipe you need right now.
I’m pretty sure that a great cheese board makes the perfect party appetizer no matter the occasion. I’m convinced of it, in fact. In full disclosure, I actually think a cheese board makes the perfectly easy dinner, too! Just give me all the cheese, please. This cheese board is sort of an ode to late summer and the fruits and veggies spilling out of gardens and farmer’s market bins right now.
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.
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!
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.
One of my favorite ways to host over the holiday season is with a brunch in lieu of a full dinner. We host pretty much weekly this time of year and if there is one thing I can promise you it’s that people love brunch! I made this spinach broccolini quiche loaded with goat cheese as part of the Friendsgiving brunch I created in collaboration with Bed Bath & Beyond and it’s not only delicious, but it’s also one of the prettiest things I’ve ever made.
This recipe is one of those party-ready recipes that has become a total go-to for me since first making it. It turns out that veggie taco tart are where it’s at, friends, and our regular weekend house crashers would whole heartedly agree! Don’t let the word “tart” intimidate you though. We’re going to jazz up store bought pie crust and whip these up in no time!
When we were kids our parents used to throw killer football game day parties. I wasn’t so much into the game back then (although I totally am now), but I found the energy and the fun so exciting and I grew to love Sundays! The food was always the best, too, which is why I’m a sucker for a good game day recipe. Today we’re talking loaded nacho tots smothered in the easiest, creamiest Crockpot queso blanco. Even if you aren’t an enthusiastic or skilled cook, these nacho tots are about to make you the talk of the town!
