• Maple Peach Crisp

    I came down on Sunday morning to find our brand new peaches already starting to spoil… even though they weren’t ripe! Heat and no air conditioning is not produces’ friend unfortunately. I hate wasting food so what better thing to make but a crisp? A close riff on my favorite Bourbon Apple Crisp… it’s delicious and I couldn’t wait until dessert… I had it for breakfast for with coconut yogurt and blueberries. Perfection.

  • July Favorites

    Hey hey, here we are half way through Summer! How is everyone doing? All a little different, but we are making sure we are still having an excellent Summer. Here are my favorites from this month!       Outdoor Movie Projector – What kid doesn’t love staying up late for an outdoor movie. This thing is awesome! Face Masks – I mean this one is obvious right? You have to wear one so let’s make it fun.  Shan Swimsuit – I actually have this in a different color but it is THE BEST swimsuit I have… so flattering, so comfortable. I feel like a million bucks in it! HBO’s…

  • Summer Salads: My New Staple

    I have had a lot of questions and requests for what this salad is… probably because I constantly post it… because yes, I really am eating it every day. This salad all starts with Alison Roman’s ” Secret Ingredient Pasta”, that I am now making WEEKLY. It is just that good, and the leftovers mixed with vinegar soaked curly kale are even better. It is bright and tangy, and for those that swear they don’t like sun dried tomatoes please try it anyway. They melt right into the fresh tomatoes. Let me back up. I have been reading Fiber Fueled: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your…

  • Mint Chia Dressing

    I LOVE to add fruit to my salads in the Summer. Nectarines, peaches and watermelon are abundant and pair so well with greens – match made in heaven! I created this dressing for those fruit filled salads… I promise it is not overly “minty”, but a great compliment to the sweet fruit! Adding the chia seeds thickens the dressing while giving you a boost of fiber!   Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.

  • Summer Salads: Prosciutto, Peach & Cucumber

    Okay, let’s start a new series! Summer Salads! You all overwhelmingly confirmed (thank you!!!) that you’d love to know what is in my daily Summer salad over on Instagram and I’m happy to write a new post series! I love combining the unexpected in a salad, especially when the produce is on fire right now. For me, it’s important to always have something a little sweet, something crunchy and something with zing. And let’s not forget a homemade dressing. I try to make a jar every week so throwing together a salad is easy. I will write the recipe as one serving in my favorite melamine bowls (I have different…

  • Basil Thyme Vinaigrette

    I love the start of Summer for many reasons… but one of my most favorite reasons is that my dad’s garden is abundant with lettuce. His favorite to grow is Simpson and it is SO good! There is nothing like a salad made with fresh cut lettuce. But, the dressing has to be equally as good. If you’ve been a reader for a while you know I prefer to make my own salad dressings, I think this may be my new all time favorite! Bursting with herby flavor, it is a Summer home run.   

  • Week Ten Coronavirus Hiatus: Uhhh?

    Well, I am sort of at a loss here. Week TEN? Seriously? I said it last week, I have no new words of wisdom or fun projects to suggest because at this point we are all trying to just make it work right? Balance every last thing and still keep the house clean? I have to be honest, this truly hasn’t been bad for us, not at all. I LOVE that we are all home together and we have enjoyed the baking, the crafts, the outdoor play, the family movie nights, the small home projects… but we miss our family and our friends. School, dinners out, movies at the theater…

  • Brown Butter Cereal Bars

    Looking to make something super easy, super satisfying and probably already have everything in your kitchen?  I got you! These are upgraded “Krispie” treats with decadent browned butter and a touch of salt. You can really use any plain cereal here… Chex, Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes etc etc. I’d stay away from fruit flavored cereals, but chocolate would work! Last time we made this we used a combo of Cheerios and Rice Chex!

  • Bourbon Apple Crisp

    Apple crisp. Talk about a dessert that is a hit any season. Summer BBQ’s, Fall gatherings, Winter holidays and Spring brunches. This one is extra special with addition of bourbon, it adds a little more depth!  The gluten free topping is so buttery and delicious! Serving with vanilla ice cream is definitely encouraged.
