The shrimp in these Coconut Red Curry Shrimp Skewers marinate in cooling coconut milk, spicy red curry paste and jalapeños, and fresh garlic, ginger, and lime juice. It’s a match made in heaven for big, juicy shrimp, which get nicely charred with the veggies on the grill. Most of the prep and cook time is hands-off, leaving you time to heat your grill and enjoy the summer weather. More shrimp skewer recipes I love are these Grilled Shrimp Panzanella Skewers and Gochujang-Honey Glazed Shrimp Skewers.

I love a good homemade potato salad, and this one is absolutely delicious, especially if you’re not a fan of traditional potato salad loaded with mayonnaise. It uses just one tablespoon of mayo but still has plenty of sauce from the Dijon mustard, olive oil, and red wine vinegar. And since it uses red potatoes, no need to peel the potatoes so it’s quicker too! For more lighter potato salad recipes, try this Rainbow Potato Salad and Summer Potato Salad with Apples.

There’s nothing I love more than a summer fruit trifle!

triple berry trifle with raspberry sauce

Could it BE any more delicious? Buttery cake and fluffy cloud-like pudding and sweet, fresh berries. Adore it.

strawberries, blueberries, raspberries

I am such a huge huge fan of a trifle – they taste so wonderfully 90s in the best way possible. My mom always made the “city girl trifle” when I was growing up and we LOVED it. She would use all sorts of fruit – peaches, bananas, mandarin oranges, etc – and it was such a hit.

Oh and get this – the classic city girl trifle uses pudding mix combined with sour cream – we tried that and it’s definitely interesting. It’s good, but I find it to be a bit heavier than classic pudding. 

red white and blue berry trifle

Last year I made this strawberry shortcake trifle and it’s absolutely incredible. This is somewhat of the same thing, just with more berries, and layered in a festive patriotic way for the 4th of July!

It’s so fun!

I also made a raspberry sauce to be layered with the cake, fruit and pudding. It may just be the best part, and I’m not even a huge fan of raspberries!

poundcake and vanilla pudding with berries

When it comes to a trifle, I find that you can definitely take shortcuts.

The semi-homemade route, if you will. I don’t think it’s worth it to make your own pound cake from scratch when you can find some super buttery, delicious pound cake to chop up for the trifle. You know? That becomes so much unnecessary work, especially when we’re just going to blanket the cake with fluffy pudding and fruit and whipped cream.

I even take this approach when it comes to the pudding sometimes! Last year, I showed you how to make the trifle with homemade vanilla bean pudding. That pudding is so fantastic – so fluffy and cloud-like but rich at the same time.

However!

You can totally use a boxed vanilla pudding – my mom ALWAYS has – and use that for the layers too. Or even a flavor like coconut pudding… wowza.

I’d say that half the time I make my own pudding, then the other half I do boxed. It depends on what else I have to prepare for the day and how much time I have. Both are equally delicious. My homemade version is just a bit more vanilla-y! 

drizzle raspberry sauce on trifle

Perhaps my favorite part about a trifle, especially a red, white and blue one, is that you can just layer things however you wish. There is no need to be fancy here because once it’s all layered, it will look festive and fun. The key is to get a bit of fruit, cake, pudding and whipped cream in each and every bite!

triple berry trifle with raspberry sauce

When it comes to the raspberry sauce, I like to use it in the layers mostly on top of the cake. It kind of soaks into the cake too and creates a raspberry cake which is incredible. You can also save the raspberry sauce for the end and only use it when serving the trifle.  (more…)

We love sausage and peppers in my house, and these foil packets kick it up a notch flavor-wise with marinara and cheese. I used Arrabbiata sauce for a spicy kick, which I highly recommend, but regular marinara works too if you prefer milder food. Tommy gave these packets two thumbs up!

We’re getting festive today with the cutest little berry hand pies!

red white and blue berry hand pies

These warm little pockets of love are bursting with summer berry flavor, and when served warm with vanilla bean ice cream? It’s like the best classic dessert for the summer holiday. I adore them. 

pie dough with fruit filling

You know that ever since having kids, I’ve become allll about the festive and fun foods around holidays. Even if it’s just a quick one day micro-holiday, I love making it special and exciting with a festive treat of some sort. The kids love it and it’s one of the things I want them to remember about growing up – how we made fun treats around the holidays.

Enter these adorable red white and blue hand pies!

pie dough with berry filling

A few years ago I made these little peach hand pies and they are something I look forward to every summer. They are SO incredibly delicious. The perfect combo of sweet fruit and flakey pastry. I use mother lovett’s pie crust and cut it into circles, then blanket some warm and saucy peaches in between. 

Bake until golden and crunchy, then serve with lots of vanilla ice cream.

YES.

red white and blue berry hand pies

If you love peaches, it’s a lovely way to use them in the warmer months. So I knew that we could make red, white and blue happen too.

red white and blue berry hand pies

To make the red and blue versions, I use strawberries and blueberries. You could use raspberries too, I’m just partial to strawberries! Since this can be a little high maintenance with two fruits and all, you could also use one or the other OR mix them (though they will turn purple-y, ha!) and make double berry hand pies. The berries are forgiving and create a wonderful sauce for the crust.

Oh and of course, the “white” is our vanilla ice cream.

red white and blue berry hand pies

They are the cutest things ever!

red white and blue berry hand pies

You will most likely have some berry filling leftover, and I like to do that on purpose. You can use it warm or cold to serve with the hand pies and ice cream, like an additional topping. Especially since the fruit inside is fairly minimal! This way, if you’re a fruit lover, you can scoop some extra right on top.  (more…)

Caesar dressing is full of such great flavors and goes perfect with grilled chicken. My secret ingredient to lighten the dressing is Greek yogurt which replaces oil. Plus, yogurt is an incredible marinade, making the chicken super tender and juicy. While the grill’s hot, throw on some romaine to quickly char it, and then drizzle the leftover dressing over the kabobs and lettuce.
