The Best of Summer Salad

The end of summer really is the most amazing time. With so many varieties of produce available all at once, I tend to lose my head and buy a bit of everything! When you combine that with all the produce we have coming in out of our little personal garden, what you get is a lot of veggies. This salad ...

Greek Inspired Grill Platter

It all started with a package of halloumi cheese, there it was sitting on the shelf at the grocery store just begging to be taken home. So of course I bought it and started mulling over what on earth I was going to do with it. I often end up with all sorts of impulse buys in my fridge. I've ...

Raspberry Melon Breakfast Bowls

These breakfast bowls emerged out of desperation on a road trip more than 10 years ago, and I've been making them ever since!

So... my friend and I stopped at a grocery store in a small town somewhere ...

Blackberry Cardamom Peach Crisp

I don't know what I want to celebrate more - the fact that watermelon and tomatoes are unbelievable right now, or that the cases of juicy ripe peaches are starting to arrive! Oh how I love the summer abundance that starts in July and runs right into my favorite months of fall. You really can't be too overly enthusiastic because ...

Grilled Sweet Peppers Stuffed with Herbed Goat Cheese

Goat cheese paired with veggies is a summer tradition for my sister and I. I think it started with homegrown Brandywine tomatoes (where we made a Caprese Salad of sorts), and the combination was so good, it just sort of spiralled from there! Mini sweet peppers turn even sweeter when you put them on the grill, and they make the ...

Farmer’s Market Chopped Salad with Basil Honey Mustard Dressing

I try and keep Tuesday night suppers extra simple because I always go to our local Farmer's Market, and there's not much time left to the evening after that. One of my favorite things to make is an ever changing salad based on what's in season at the time. I rarely write them down into a formal recipe, but I ...
