Chive Cheddar Omelet

The classic French omelet method is to add the eggs to a very hot skillet, use a spatula to quickly move them around, and get them off the heat quickly. This way there are no accidental holes in the omelet or uneven sides, it’s foolproof and fancy-feeling and a skill to add to your repertoire…

Prosciutto Melon Parm

Melon with prosciutto is a classic dish. The sweetness from the melon and the saltiness from the prosciutto is just the perfect bite. Add parmesan, some really good olive oil, honey, and salt? All of those flavors just get boosted even more. Absolutely delightful. The perfect no-cook sweet and savory summer dish. Serving ideas: with…

Gazpacho with Crispy Pancetta and Sour Cream

It’s the first damn week of September and everyone is already all “IT’S SOUP SEASON”! As I type up this recipe, it is 110°F outside, so I totally agree – “AS LONG AS THAT SOUP IS FREEZING COLD!” Gazpacho is such a delightful end of summer delicacy. End of summer, because that’s when the best…

Grilled Prosciutto and Brie Wrapped Figs

Yep, these are basically the exact same ingredients from my Fig and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese sandwiches from earlier this week! Good food blogger move? No. Good fridge-cleaner-outer move? Yes! These couldn’t be more delicious, or easier. They’re crispy smoky from the prosciutto, gooey and cheesy from the melted cheese, jammy and sweet from the figs….

Lexie’s Perfect Summer Tomato Spaghetti

My friend Lexie is one of my only friends who can talk about food as obsessively and ceaselessly as I can. A look through our text history is almost entirely photos of food that we’ve made or eaten at restaurants, and links to the latest recipes we’ve tried or want to try. Lexie and her…

One-Pot Southern Squash Casserole Pasta

The summer between high school and college, I nannied for our neighbor’s family up in the mountains of North Carolina. Bartlett, the mama of the family, loves to entertain, so while my primary job was supposed to be nannying her two girls, sometimes I wound up so entrenched cooking with Bartlett that she would hire…

Summer Salad with Shredded Chicken, Peaches, Tomatoes, Burrata, and Herby Vinaigrette

I am VERY willing to admit that my consistent healthy eating habits got lost in the absolute ABYSS of the past six months. It’s easy to fall off the healthy eating wagon, and it’s hard to get back on. But all of the INSANELY GOOD summer produce available right now helps, big time. The peaches…

Grilled Summer Vegetable Greek Salad

I love a Greek salad. Salty feta, briny olives, sharp red onion, juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers – what’s not to like?! In my opinion, Greek salads should really only be served (in the US anyway) during the summer and fall months, when tomatoes are ripe and delicious. Hothouse winter tomatoes just aren’t the same! With…

20-Minute Melon, Prosciutto and Burrata

This salad TASTES and LOOKS like a fahncy fahncy platter you’d get at a fahncy fahncy restaurant in Italy. But it takes 15 minutes to throw together! Ok, maybe 20, it really depends on how fast you can slice up the melon! Melon, cucumbers, prosciutto, burrata, fresh herbs, and crunchy, buttery macadamia nuts all combine…
