Scallops are the Southern husband’s favorite, and lemon is the Southern husband’s favorite. Butter and cheese are two of my favorites, so I knew if I put all of these things together in one light and lovely recipe for scallops in lemon butter sauce, I pretty much couldn’t go wrong. And bonus points – this recipe takes about 15 minutes tops from walking into your kitchen to sitting down at your table (I love it when that happens!). Ready for dinner party deliciousness that is quick enough for a Monday school night? Let’s make it!

Here I present to you another case of not leaving well enough alone, because you KNOW I can’t help taking perfectly good recipes and mashing them up together. And I have to say, it doesn’t always work, but when it does work.., well, yum! And that was happily the case with these Caesar salad burgers. Your classic hamburger, covered not in ketchup and pickles but with a generous topping of Caesar salad and parmesan cheese.

This ready-in-20-minutes supper (yes you read that right) is one of my summertime favorites. It’s all kind of healthy, it involves the minimum amount of time in the kitchen when what you really want to be doing is enjoying the beautiful outside summertime, and most importantly, it is SCRUMPTIOUS. Tender flaky salmon, cheery asparagus, the bright flavor of lemon, all topped off with crunchy crispy breadcrumbs.
Ready for some salmon with toasted bread crumbs deliciousness? Let’s make it!
I am helpless in the face of steak frites on any restaurant menu. Steak frites is exactly what the picture looks like it is…slices of steak with french fries…and when enough time goes by without me running into it while we are out to dinner, I make it myself. And when I make it myself, I get to have my ideal version of it, which is this recipe for medium rare slices of marinated hangar steak with a side of the teeniest, skinniest crispy little fries.
If you don’t count the marinating time, this is a perfect in-and-out of the kitchen in under 30 minutes supper, and it makes me SO happy that it’s in this category of Kate’s Favorites. So (say it with me)…let’s make it!

I wrote this recipe for creamy, dreamy avocado coconut crab soup when the Southern husband and I first started the Whole 30 last summer, but even if it didn’t have All The Healthy Things in it, it would still make my top ten soup list because it is both so dang delicious AND it is ready in about ten minutes. Yep. You are five minutes away from a bowl of that deliciousness you are looking at up there, and how perfect is that? And when you put that together with the healthy personality of this soup…well, what are we waiting for? Let’s make it!
There’s just something about soup that makes winter Not So Bad. Especially when it is an easy peasy potato blue cheese soup that blends together into a creamy, hearty, cheese bowl of warm delicousness. Such is the case with this recipe, which cooks up all in one pot, and then gets whirled in the blender until it is smooth and thick and dreamy, and is just perfect for a cold winter’s night. Or afternoon. I do love a good substantial soup for lunch…it gives me lots of energy to tackle the rest of the day. This one has three of my favorites in it: potatoes, leeks and a snappy blue cheese, and I always purposely make extra so that I can have it lunch after lunch. Let’s make some!
I love sushi. There’s something so fresh and delicious and healthy about it – it’s the very definition of good and good for you. And while I am usually up for trying to recreate my restaurant favorites in my own kitchen, there’s something about making sushi rolls that I just can’t wrap my mind around. So I decided to tackle that favorite of all favorites, the California roll…but in salad form. Thereby saving myself and the Southern husband from a meltdown in the kitchen from me trying to roll up all the delicious ingredients in seaweed paper. That sound you just heard was the Southern husband heaving a giant sigh of relief.

Before I get started on these warm and wonderful apple dumplings, I need to spend a minute talking about a few of my favorite things. One, of course, is food. I cook it, I photograph it, I eat it and then I start the whole thing over again, day in and day out, and I am one happy camper in my kitchen. And the other thing is books. And the authors who write them. And today I want to tell you about some of my very favorites in these categories. One is called apple dumplings, one is called DUMPLIN’ and one is called Julie Murphy, and they are all delicious in their own scrumptious ways. So in happy celebration of one of my favorite authors, one of my favorite books and one of my favorite baked treats, I am giving away three copies of Julie’s amazing new novel DUMPLIN’ and along with them, three Silpat baking sheets to make your own delicious apple dumplings. Or dumplin’s, as I think I might have to call them from now on. Read on!

One of the great discoveries my summer so far has been that noodles can come from many places. I already knew about the pasta boxes that line my pantry, but apparently there is this whole world of carrot and squash and cucumber and probably millions of other fresh summer veggies that make dang good noodles. That discovery, along with a gift of some cucumbers and the mint that is taking over the world in my back yard led me to one of my current noodle crushes: cucumber mint noodles, which are dressed with an easy lemon ginger sauce to give them a little kick. Let’s talk noodles!
The lazy hazy days are finally here, and I am beside myself with happiness at all the fresh local veggies that are popping up at my local farm market. I’m tossing them into every single thing I can think of, including and most especially supper, and one of my favorites is this quick and easy tuna pasta salad, which has loads of one of my personal favorites, sweet and sunny cherry tomatoes. A handful of those babies, some fresh lemon, a little pasta and the best jarred or canned tuna you can get your mitts on, and you are all set for a light and lovely summer supper!
