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!
I have loved tuna salad of all shapes and sizes since forever, but in the summer this is my all-time fave. Tuna tossed with fresh local tomatoes, fresh herbs, a handful of capers and the olive oil from the tuna jar – that’s all you need to make a tuna salad that is summertime delicious. Ready for some easy, perfect tuna salad, hold the mayo? Let’s make it!
I am a big old soup lover, and just because we are getting into the lazy hazy days of summer, that doesn’t mean I am giving up my beloved soup. Nope, I’m just going to divert to cool and refreshing soups that are just the ticket for warm summer evenings. Chilled hummus soup. Avocado vichyssoise. And my current favorite, which is this scrumptious and easy shrimp gazpacho. It comes together in less than 15 minutes, and is chock-full of good and good for you summer veggies.
So, ready to cook down with my new favorite summertime soup supper? Let’s make it!
So what is tuna poke, you ask? Poke (which is pronounced poke-ay…rhymes with okay!) is a traditional Hawaiian dish made of chopped seafood (more on that later) that is marinated in some kind of salty/spicy mixture, usually with soy sauce, and served with rice and some kind of garnish. It can be made with all kinds of seafood, but the traditional version is made with tuna, so since this is my first go-round with poke, I went with tuna, and I was all kinds of happy with my new favorite seafood supper.

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 am a huge fan of sheet pan dinners and I know lots of you are too, because my sheet pan recipe for One Pan Chicken and Vegetables is so popular on this blog that we turned it into a video (check out my video player on the right sidebar). So I figured, what’s good for dinner should be good for breakfast and brunch too, right? Right? And what better place to start my breakfast sheet pan adventures than with our old friends bacon and eggs.
This easy peasy recipe is a great way to cook up a whole mess of bacon and eggs along with some healthy and handsome sweet potatoes, and with exactly one plan to clean up at the end, it’s also good for those days when you just can’t deal with cleaning up the kitchen.
