Chipotle peppers are one of my favorite ingredients (if you haven’t noticed). On our recent girls trip we had planned a red potato salad to serve with our Chipotle Pulled Pork Sliders. However, when it came time to start making said potato salad, we realized we really hadn’t brought a recipe. Or thought about what we wanted in our potato salad. Or really had any plan at all. Interesting how sometimes the best things can be born out of complete blank space-like this Chipotle Adobo Potato Salad!…
Usually when it comes to breakfast foods, I am solidly in in Camp Salty. I love a good omelet, studded with veggies, cheese and bacon. I love breakfast potatoes, roasted and crispy. That being said, I also have a weak spot for really good waffles. A good waffle (in my mind, at least) is a bit crisp on the outside, and perfectly light and chewy on the inside with just a hint of sweetness. I have been searching for a go-to recipe for a few years now. …
It’s hard to believe that the Fourth of July is so quickly approaching! As I’m preparing for our traditional cabin weekend filled with family and (way too much) good food, I’ve been stockpiling new recipes to try. This week’s Good (Food) Reads is a collection of some of the best recipes I’ve stumbled upon this past week and can’t wait to try.
Easy Corn Fritters via Sally’s Baking Addiction. Because nothing says summer like fresh sweet corn.
Simple Roasted Red Pepper Pasta from Half Baked Harvest. A gorgeous summer pasta studded with arugula and fresh burrata! I will forever be a carb lover and this recipe looks like the prefect excuse to eat some carbs and cheese. YUM….
As you can imagine, any time Holly and I get together there is a lot of talk about food. And none more than when we are planning a girls weekend at my cabin. We knew it would be hot. We knew our other partner in crime (Hi Em!) was coming with us and likely didn’t want to spend ALL DAY cooking. We knew we wanted delicious food. Enter Chipotle Pulled Pork Sliders, made in the slow cooker. My favorite kitchen tool in the winter, it is also unbelievably useful in the summer. Especially when you don’t want to heat up your cabin with the oven. Especially when you’re going to want something amazing for dinner. Especially when you want to spend the day outdoors, splashing in the lake and taking the boat out for a spin!…
Some recipes really are the simplest ones. Lane and I spent last weekend at her cabin with a dear friend (Hi Em!) soaking up the summer weather and doing a little blog work. In addition to some R&R, we had spent some time in the kitchen developing and testing recipes that we will be sharing with ya’ll soon! One of the easiest and most versatile creations to come out of that weekend is this Bourbon Vanilla Whipped Cream….
It’s Wednesday and time for another Good (Food) Reads, the weekly post where we highlight recipes and foodie articles from around the internet. There’s a whole lot of goodness out there on the web this week so let’s dive right in, shall we?
Skillet Chicken with Tomatoes, Pancetta, and Mozzarella. I’m a sucker for anything with pancetta and ooey-gooey bocconcini so this recipe will be happening in my house ASAP. Plus, I love any excuse to use my Le Creuset cast iron skillet!
My husband hates tomatoes so I stockpile tomato recipes for those nights when I’m eating solo. I think this Tomato and Basil Risotto will be next up on my solo-cooking list! Yum.
Speaking of skillets, I’m super excited to try these Summer Vegetable Skillet Enchiladas. I’m thinking they’re just the answer for this coming Meatless Monday!
As grilling season continues to heat up, I am looking forward to trying these Maple Balsamic Chicken and Bacon Skewers. A step up from standard BBQ fare, for sure. I’m also intrigued by these Balsamic Honey Chicken Peach Skewers.
Chocolate Banana Nut Crunch Cupcakes. Because I can only be virtuous in my diet for so long.
Right now I can’t stop eating ALL. OF. THE. WATERMELON. It’s a real problem. Camille Styles rounds up 20 great watermelon recipes for any of you out there having the same issue I am!
I’m also loving pineapple these days. YummyMummy has a recipe for Vegan Pineapple Ice Cream that I can’t wait to try, right after I make up a batch of this Super Quick Raspberry Ice Cream. Can you tell I’m all about fruit and dessert these days?
Lane and I recently attended a spectacular dinner party which included the best dates as an appetizer. Those were savory – covered in a blue cheese sauce and wrapped in bacon (SO GOOD) – but these dessert style Almond Joy Dates sound just as fantastic.
This past weekend was girls’ weekend at the cabin. No husbands. No boyfriends. No kids. Only lots and lots of relaxation on the dock, good conversation, good food, and of course…cocktails. A summer girls’ weekend cocktail needs to be bold, different, and most of all refreshing. That is where these Lavender Lemonade Tonics come to the rescue!
Quiche. I have a life long love affair with quiche and this Asparagus, Goat Cheese, and Roasted Red Pepper Quiche is my latest obsession. My love for all thing quiche started when I was a teenager. Having stubbornly become a vegetarian as a pre-teen, eggs were a staple of my diet and one of the recipes that my (very understanding) mother came to master for me was a crustless vegetarian quiche filled with broccoli, cheese, and onion. It was always such a comforting and filling meal and I know my mom was thrilled that my meat eating dad and brother would devour it as well. …
Happy Wednesday, Foodie Friends! This week’s Good (Food) Reads is a fun collection of recipes to try this week from around the web. No real theme, just good, solid food inspiration. What have you been making lately? I’m loving easy summer salads as the weather heats up. And just so I don’t sound too virtuous, I’ll confess that I’m also really loving ice cream and frozen treats! In fact, I can’t wait to try these Watermelon Popsicles, from the great Mark Bittman. Do you make your own popsicles?
Banana Everything cookies. The perfect recipe for when you have just one, overripe banana! This happens to me all the time and I’m admittedly not great about freezing those bananas for bread later. Maybe this recipe will be the solution to my lone banana problem.
10 Food Myths That are Hurting Your Kids. A great article on feeding our families, from The Washington Post.
Sweet Potato Corn Chowder from Cook Nourish Bliss. I know it’s summer, but I am one of those people who can eat soup all day, every day. Really looking forward to trying this one!
Strawberry Pistachio Crumble via Love and Lemons. Oh man, does this recipe look good. I love the idea of smaller, individual crumbles and can’t get enough of the pistachio!
Zucchini Noodles with Basil-Pumpkin Seed Pesto from Cookie + Kate. Spiralizing is still all the rage. Here’s another take on zoodles.
Egg Yolk Ravioli. I am so intrigued by these. They look so simple and yet so elegant. Do you make your own pasta?
How to Make Your Own Waffle Mix via Simple Bites. Aimee never disappoints and I cant wait to make up a batch of this waffle mix to have on hand all summer. My toddler will love it!
Cake Batter Ice Cream. Because summer is HERE!
Spaghettini with Roasted Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, and Toasted Garlic Breadcrumbs. I’m hoping to try this recipe this weekend while on a girls weekend. My husband despises tomatoes, so I have to look for opportunities to sneak in recipes like this one when he’s not eating!!
That’s it for this week’s Good (Food) Reads. Let us know what internet inspiration you’re enjoying!
Salad, salad, salad. Salad seems to be all that is on my mind lately. It’s finally warm outside. Everything is finally blooming. Gardens have been planted. Community supported agriculture programs are in full swing. Vegetables are plentiful and flavorful. This Mediterranean Couscous Salad is a great way to use up all of these beautiful farmer’s market finds. …
