Every summer, something happens that I look forward to all year: I spot a pile of the first sweet corn of the season at the farmers market. Immediately, my mind starts racing, imagining all the fresh corn recipes I’ll make when I get home. Should I start with a corn salad? Tacos? Chowder? Plain ol’ corn on the cob? I’ll only make one of these corn recipes on that first night, but in the coming weeks, I’ll cycle through all of them. In late summer, corn is so fresh, sweet, and juicy that I cook it (and eat it) as […]

Cheesy Pesto Rolls

Say hello to savory swirl rolls! ♡

While making my favorite 1-hour cinnamon rolls recipe for the millionth time, it occurred to me that the soft and buttery dough could be just as delightful swirled with a cheesy, garlicky, herb-y filling. So I decided to make a test batch one night for dinner, filled with lots of fresh basil pesto, mozzarella, and Parmesan. And oh my goodness, they were such a success — even more delicious than I had imagined. And so vibrant and pretty too!

The dough recipe itself is impressively quick and easy to make either by hand or with a stand mixer. And while we completely loved the Italian-inspired cheese and pesto combination (especially right now while fresh basil is exploding in our garden), the sky would honestly be the limit here with any type of cheese, pesto, tapenade, nuts, herbs, or other savory fillings that might sound good.

So have fun with these and let me know how they turn out!

Cold soup is one of my summer obsessions, right up there with salads, cold brew, and everything sweet corn. On a hot summer day, there’s nothing I crave more.

You’ll find 9 of my go-to cold soup recipes below. They include classics like gazpacho and chilled cucumber soup as well as out-of-the-box ideas like cold carrot coconut soup and […]

However! Side dishes are always tricky for me!

Eddie looovvvves his sides and I grew up in a house where my mom made an entree with at least two side dishes every night. It was amazing!

So that’s the goal for me in our house. I want to have delicious, complementary side dishes that are seasonal and wonderful but also easy and simple. Below I’m sharing a mixture of both! A few fancier summer side dishes that you can make on the grill while you’re prepping your main dish, and a few easy ones that you can prep ahead. Sometimes I make a more involved side dish and an easy entree, like grilled BBQ chicken. Other times it’s a bigger main with something really easy on the side.

Either way, I’d love to hear your favorite summer sides below. Oh and of course, grilled corn and caprese is a go-to!
