And I know, they LOOK all complicated, but remember this is me you are talking to, and I don’t do complicated. So if you are looking for a show-stopper first course for your holiday table, look no further and let’s make them!
This bowl of smoked salmon potato salad is not only a rainbow full of delicious tastes and textures, it also is an explosion of healthiness, and honestly, what more could you ask for in a salad? Cheery cherry tomatoes, tender potatoes, crunchy lettuce and the silky, salty taste of smoked salmon, with some capers and chopped pickle for sass, and just a hint of creamy dressing. And except for boiling up the potatoes, exactly NO cooking, which is music to my ears during these sultry summer evenings.

One of the most popular recipes here at Framed Cooks is the one for sheet pan chicken and vegetables, and it’s also one of the recipes that actually gets repeated on a regular basis in my kitchen amid all the new recipes I am forever writing and testing, because it is so easy, so scrumptious and there is exactly one pan to clean up after supper. And because I can never leave well enough alone, I decided to sass this trusty recipe up a little with some different veggies and some sausage, and now I am torn between which one is my favorite.
So if you want to add a little flare to your chicken and vegetables, come on with me and let’s make it!

This easy recipe for pasta with mozzarella and turkey meatballs is a fun spin on the classic spaghetti with meatballs, and has the extra added advantage of coming together in about 20 minutes for those busy weekday nights when you know you should make dinner, but you don’t want to, but you should. If you can hang in there for those twenty minutes, you will be rewarded with a nice warm bowl of pasta with cute little meatballs, sweet cherry tomatoes and melty mozzarella, and if that isn’t incentive for spending those twenty minutes in the kitchen I don’t know what is. Let’s make it!
I do love a good panzanella salad, and this chicken and bacon panzanella salad is definitely no exception. Panzanella salad is a salad made with chunks of bread and tomato, and it is definitely glorious in the summertime when the tomatoes are at their peak. (I miss you, summer tomatoes!) But it is also the very best kind of salad to have in the chilly months, when you want some salad but you also want something warm and substantial to get you through the last blast of winter. This version adds chicken and cucumber and onion and BACON to the equation, and is just the ticket to panzanella happiness. Let’s make it!
