Delicious Summer Side Salads ~ My Top Five

Food & Home, Rachel Maria's Recipes

One of my favorite things about summer is having access to beautiful, fresh, and colorful produce! I don’t crave veggies nor salads, as much, in the winter months. For obvious reasons. I also feel that dinner is so much more enjoyable in the summer. Scott and I try to grill and dine outdoors, as often as possible, throughout the summer months. Typically, Scott prepares our meat or fish entree, on the grill. So, I have ample time to prepare the most delicious, summer side salads. 

Chicken Marsala Recipe

Rachel Maria's Recipes

Believe it or not, there was a time that I didn’t care much for Chicken Marsala. Perhaps it was due to a bad experience, that I can’t even remember. Sometimes, all it takes is a party invitation, with just one thing on the menu, to force you into trying something, again. And, wouldn’t you know. I actually love Chicken Marsala! I can now say, from experience, that it’s all in the way it’s made.

Bolognese Sauce Recipe

Food & Home, Rachel Maria's Recipes

I’m doing something new, on Instagram. I’m allowing my followers to make recommendations for my Food Demos. It’s a win-win. Because I’m showing them what they want to see, and they’re giving me ideas on What to Cook for Dinner. Last week, someone suggested a Bolognese Sauce with Pasta. I hadn’t made it in such a long time, and I’ve been missing Italy and the delicious authentic meals I had there, with Scott. So, I made this, last night, as authentic as I could remember. It came out DELICIOUS! 

Artificial Flowers for Outdoor Flower Pots

Food & Home, The House on High Street

There are a few reasons why I decided on artificial flowers for my outdoor flower pots at The House on High Street. I don’t exactly have a green thumb and watering plants is not on my priority list. Surprisingly, silk flowers can be a lot less expensive. And, not just in the long run! (They can last a few years as opposed to one season.) Last but not least, it took me only five minutes to put these pots together! 

Asian Grilled Chicken Kabobs

Food & Home, Rachel Maria's Recipes

Last night, I attempted to create a gluten free sweet potato gnocchi, but ended up with a sweet potato pancake. As I told Scott, good thing I had a back-up plan. These Asian Grilled Chicken Kabobs came out so delicious, they definitely made it to my future recipe book. I created a marinade for the chicken and left it in the fridge for a few hours. This is a super easy summer recipe that will make you the star of any barbecue!
