Family Entertaining

carrot and fennel soup

Roasted Fennel and Carrot Soup

My kids are on a soup kick lately, which is awesome. Soup is perfect for those weeknights when we are all running in different directions. It’s healthy, nutrient rich and easily gluten-free.

hatch pepper mac n cheese

Nacho Average Hatch Pepper Mac & Cheese (Gluten-Free)

I’m not a fan of the boxed macaroni and cheese. A “real” version is so quick and easy to make with just a few ingredients you usually have on hand. For the kids, I forgo the hatch peppers and make a batch of this family favorite.

kabocha tacos

Roasted Squash and Poblano Tacos

Even if you’re a meat-loving family, it’s always nice to have vegetarian options for family meals that still taste hearty and satisfying. So grab a big knife and hack into your first squash of the season.

grill pizza

Fresh Pizza Dough/Pizza on the Grill

Since the 4th of July, pizza has been on the brain. Inspired by Clark at Full of Life Flatbread, I set out to create a wood-burning oven scenario at home without hitching a full oven rig to the family truckster.

peach crumble

Easy Dessert: Fruit Crumble

This recipe is an old standby of mine, not just because it is so quick and easy to throw together, but because you can use any combination of ripe summer fruit.

zucchini recipe

Tasty Zucchini with Quinoa

Two years ago, my friend Samantha mentioned that if I ever found myself with a ton of zucchini she had a recipe for me. Boy, was she right.

rosti potato

Potato Rosti

This is a total treat for Dad, a wedge of these on his plate will be a hit, trust me.

red white and blue salad

Red, White & Blue Watermelon Salad

At first glance, this may seem like obscure combination, but the flavors really work together. It’s sweet, tart and tastes like the start of summer, which makes it a perfect addition to your Memorial Day BBQ.
