Peach, plum and blueberry crumble

Labor day weekend is upon us, which technically marks the end of summer. But the weather is still beautiful and I plan on holding on to summer for as long as I can. The grill will be getting a workout until the snow is too heavy to lift the cover and our palates shift to heavier comfort foods. But for now, I’ll find comfort in this gorgeous peach, plum and blueberry summer crumble… with a cool scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt of course! Happy Labor Day!

Feta, roasted red pepper and sun-dried tomato stuffed chicken breasts

How was your 4th of July holiday? Luckily we escaped the showers and had another amazing day by the pool; and now I’m lucky enough to be celebrating my wedding anniversary at a weekend getaway in Cape Cod. Definitely a fantastic holiday weekend! Before taking off for the holidays, earlier in the week I had a private custom lesson with a client who was afraid to cook chicken at home (he only tried it once and due to the fear of undercooking it, he kept it on the stove top for way too long… which of course resulted in nearly inedible chicken hockey pucks!). I was happy to help! We...

Lemony orzo with artichoke pesto, corn and grape tomatoes

Sorry for missing this weekend’s post. Since we had an unusually hot day, our friends, my husband and I ended up driving up to Newburyport to spend the day by the pool – definitely the perfect activity on a 95* day! Of course on my way to the party, I decided to stop by Trader Joe’s to pick up a few ingredients for a simple lunch for all. This dish ended up being a HUGE hit so I thought I’d share it right away given that July 4th is coming up and you may find yourselves doing a bit of lounging by the pool as well (or spending time with my friends and family at a...
