Nicoise Salad

I first fell in love with Nicoise salad when Jack and I visited the city where it originated: Nice, France. While we were there, I ordered it everywhere we went. There’s something about the combination of crisp summer veggies, bright lemon vinaigrette, and briny olives and capers that I find absolutely irresistible. As an added bonus, hard boiled eggs...

Grilled Potatoes

I’m all about mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, and roasted potatoes in the fall and winter, but when summer rolls around, grilled potatoes are my #1 pick. They’re crispy on the outside, creamy in the middle, and filled with delicious smoky flavor. They’re an irresistible cookout side dish all on their own (if you’re anything like me, you’ll eat a couple...

Summer Fruit Salad

Over the years, I’ve posted all sorts of salads with fruit (see here, here, or here), but I’ve never posted a classic fruit salad recipe. I don’t know why, but I’m more likely to add summer fruits to savory dishes than to eat them on their own. Peaches on pizza? I’ve tried it. Cherries with cheese? Done. But lately, Jack and I have been getting gorgeous...

Creamy Coleslaw

This easy coleslaw recipe is great for just about any occasion – a weeknight dinner, a fourth of July cookout, or a fun picnic lunch. Like all my favorite summer recipes, it’s packed with colorful veggies, and a lightly creamy, tangy dressing ties the whole thing together. It comes together in minutes, and it keeps well if you make it ahead of time....

Coleslaw Dressing

Once you learn how to make coleslaw dressing at home, you’ll never buy it at the store again! Here’s why: It’s super easy. This creamy coleslaw dressing recipe calls for 5 basic ingredients, and it only takes a few minutes to whisk together. It’s made with good-quality whole foods ingredients. When you make homemade coleslaw dressing, you know exactly...

Strawberry Shortcake

If I were to give you one piece of advice this week, it would be to make this strawberry shortcake recipe. Rustic, decadent, and completely delicious, it’s the kind of dessert that’s destined to make you smile. Summer is here, and strawberry shortcake is the perfect way to celebrate. The shortcakes here are bright, lemony cornmeal biscuits. I’ve always...

Daily Harvest New Scoops & Flatbreads

Special thanks to Daily Harvest for partnering on this post. Before this spring, Jack and I went out for dinner at least once a week, and we often picked up something quick for lunch during the workday. But in March, that changed. All of a sudden, we were eating every meal at home, every day. Obviously, I love cooking. But prepping breakfast, lunch,...

Socca Recipe

When Jack and I visited Nice, France, I ate two things as much as I could: Niçoise salad and socca. If you’re not familiar with socca, it’s a savory chickpea pancake with crisp, golden brown edges and a moist interior. It’s popular throughout southern France and northern Italy, and once you try it, you’ll see why. Chickpea flour and olive oil give it...

Green Goddess Dressing

At this time of year, I make this green goddess dressing recipe almost every week. Jack and I have just planted our little garden on our back deck, and we have loads of fresh herbs. Straight off the plant, they’re fragrant and tender, ready to add a punch of fresh flavor to almost any dish. I often grab a handful of parsley for a weeknight pasta, a...

Easy Macaroni Salad

This macaroni salad recipe is my fresher take on the kind I ate growing up. If you’re familiar with classic macaroni salad, you know that it’s usually coated in an ulta-creamy dressing made with mayo, sugar, and even sour cream. Though this kind of dressing is too rich for me these days, there’s still a lot that I do like about macaroni salad. Diced...
