Summer is finally here!
Last week, Lily graduated from elementary school. It was a big week for Lily and our entire family. We celebrated our girl and said goodbye to a school that served as an extension of our home. We spent 10 important, formative, and very special years with our children at a school that we truly love. We will miss all of the people who touched our lives over the past decade and inspired our children to become the best possible version of themselves. We are filled with gratitude for the experience.
Now that summer is here for my family, we are ready for lazy mornings and late nights. I’m looking for dinners that reflect how I feel this time of year: relaxed and easy. I go for fresh, seasonal, easy to throw together dinners that make everyone happy. This week, I’ve got a gorgeous Grilled Chicken with Tomato Salad by Gaby Dalkin, an easy breezy Summer Tartine, my favorite marinated, grilled lamb with a to-die-for curry sauce, and a soul satisfying Pasta E Fagioli by Once Upon A Chef.
I want my entire summer to look like this beautifully grilled chicken. Grilled chicken saddled up next to a lovely salad of corn, avocado, and tomato and finished off with a cilantro vinaigrette hits all the right notes. This should be your signature summer dinner.View Recipe
Sometimes summer cooking calls for a simple but satisfying Summer Tartine. Pick the most special bread you can find, a lovely burrata, and the juiciest most flavorful tomatoes you can get your hands on. Top with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Your welcome.View Recipe
This lamb is my kids’ most favorite dinner on the planet. The marinade is simple and does the trick: wine and a grainy mustard. The sauce is creamy and flavorful and totally dreamy. Throw this lamb on the grill and serve with Basmati Rice.View Recipe
Once Upon A Chef delivers with this hearty Pasta E Fagioli. When you kick off a flavor profile with pancetta, you are definitely speaking my language. I love that every bite delivers pasta, lentils, and northern beans. Soul satisfying and totally delicious!View Recipe
