I named this recipe Summer’s End Pasta not to make us all sad that yes, summer is winding down (and I have to admit, I am looking forward to those first cool mornings of fall!) but to remind all of us that now is the time to take advantage of this glorious moment when the local corn, tomatoes and herbs are all in season all at the same time! Toss in some bacon and some creamy ricotta cheese and you have a summer pasta dish that you’ll remember all the way until next Memorial Day. Ready to put those summer veggies to work? Let’s make it!
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!
It has been quite an exciting week around these parts! As I write, we have just over 300 days to go before the Southern daughter goes down that aisle with her honey, and so we are in Full Wedding Planning Mode. I rotate between excitement and overwhelmed-ness and joy and happy tears, sometimes all in the same 5 minute period, and that is a perfect time to have a supper like this creamy lemon pasta on hand. Easy, just a little bit decadent, and with all the pretty springtime colors of an early spring wedding. Ready for a plateful of pasta happiness? Let’s make it!
I usually try and be a lot more authentically Irish with my St. Patrick’s Day week recipe, and one day I will make and share my Irish mama’s recipe for colcannon, which is the tradition combo of mashed potatoes and cabbage (I promise it is more scrumptious than it sounds). But I couldn’t wait any longer to share this out of this world and super easy recipe for smashed bacon potatoes. And I figure that what with the potatoes and if you use Irish butter (hello KerryGold!) you are good to go putting a giant spoonful of this on your plate next to the corned beef. Ready to bacon up your mashed potatoes? Let’s make it!
Lobster scrambled eggs are comfort food on top of comfort food on top of comfort food. It is the ultimate cure for a bad day, or the ultimate reward for a good one.

And this easy recipe divides one lobster among two happy people, so it doesn’t break the bank either. Ready for the best comfort food ever? Let’s make it!
