The Best Wedge Salad with Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing

  I will make no apologies for my love of a good wedge salad. No, there is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of here – just crisp iceberg lettuce, drowning in blue cheese dressing and adorned with a myriad of tasty toppings. Sure, a wedge salad is a little cliché. This is nothing new, people. But you know what? A… Read More »

Roasted Corn and Blueberry Bruschetta

They say that necessity is the mother of invention, but I would also argue that abundance is another mother of invention. Last weekend, I came home from the PDX Food Swap with 5+ pounds of fresh blueberries. I made jam (recipe to come!), enjoyed fresh blueberries with my yogurt and granola for breakfast every morning, and even froze a few… Read More »

This is such a simple and pretty spring salad. I won’t pretend this salad is anything new or revolutionary – let’s be honest, we’ve all seen spinach and strawberry salads before – but I think the simplicity of this salad is what I love most about it. It’s chock-full of gorgeous spring produce – strawberries, spinach, fennel, radishes, and snap… Read More »

Strawberry Cream Pie

Strawberry Cream Pie | Rosemarried

This pie is the best pie ever. I know that’s a bold statement, but I am telling you the truth. This strawberry cream pie is just the best. It’s simple, seasonal, and it’s absolutely beautiful. Northwest strawberries are at the peak of their season right now, and so they are remarkably plump, sweet, and juicy. They don’t need any doctoring… Read More »
