Panzanella & Summer Garden Pasta



The season is rolling along and we have our favorite summer recipes on repeat. Ina Garten’s Summer Garden Pasta is a summer staple – when you have fresh, local tomatoes at your disposal you look for every tomato recipe available! And this year, I finally made Ina’s Panzanella. This recipe gets rave reviews but I never made it myself. Now that I’ve made it, I may never stop.

Lemon Garlic Shrimp - Sheet Pan Dinner

Lemon Garlic Shrimp - Sheet Pan Dinner

We are having a great summer, but we are busy. Traveling, camp, sports - lots of proverbial balls in the air and unfortunately, cooking a legit family dinner doesn't take top priority. Earlier this year I came across a list of ways to help simplify family routines and address the 'what’s for dinner' conundrum. Through that article, I found some recipes for easy sheet pan dinners – one pan, minimal ingredients and a healthy tasty dinner for my family. Perfect for a busy summer. This lemon garlic shrimp and asparagus was the first one I tried and it’s been a hit, so I decided to share. I’m on the hunt for more sheet pan dinner winners – so please leave us your thoughts and suggestions!

Strawberry Season



It’s strawberry season. Last year we attempted strawberry jam (I promise we will try it again with my mom’s supervision!). This year, after grabbing our haul from Maple Acres Farm, we decided on strawberry shortcakes and Ina Garten’s fruit tart! George came back to give us his baking tips and enjoy the deliciousness of our favorite summer fruit.

In The Kitchen - Ina's Flag Cake

In The Kitchen - Ina's Flag Cake



The famous Ina Garten Flag Cake. I would bet that if you’ve lived in America for any amount of time or even happened to visit in the summer months, you’ve seen some version of the Flag Cake. This time of year, the fruity stars and stripes are all over checkout aisle magazine covers and cooking shows. It’s so festive and fun - even Taylor Swift and her famous friends are fans of Ina’s Flag Cake.

In The Kitchen - Jalapeño Margaritas

In The Kitchen - Jalapeño Margaritas

Kids are almost done with school, Father’s Day is this weekend and it’s finally starting to feel like summertime in NY. I thought it would be a good time to share one of our favorite summer drinks – courtesy of Ina Garten and my husband Brad - Jalapeño Margaritas. Brad loves spicy food. Loves it. So years ago, when I first got my hands on Ina’s Make It Ahead cookbook, I was thrilled to find her Jalapeño Margaritas recipe...

In The Kitchen - Barbecue Sides

In The Kitchen - Barbecue Sides

With the last few weeks of summer upon us, we couldn’t leave the season behind without a Summer Barbeque post! Cindy and her husband are masters of the grill (check out Cindy’s post here) – but I am the master of side dishes (thanks to my mom and Ina). I’ve hosted and attended quite a few family dinners and bbqs this summer so I put together a quick round up of some of my favorite side dishes.

Our East Hampton Favorites

Our East Hampton Favorites

I have so many great memories from growing up in East Hampton, NY – but I didn’t fully understand what a special place it is until I got a little older. No matter how old I get or where I live, I will always miss ‘home’ – especially in the summer. Thankfully, we get to spend lots of time visiting EH.

Springs Farmer's Market - East Hampton

Springs Farmer's Market - East Hampton

I absolutely love summer in East Hampton. One of my favorite things to do is visit the local farmer’s markets. This week Cassandra was in town and we had a great morning at the Springs Farmer’s Market on the green at Ashawagh Hall. Springs is the part of East Hampton where we both grew up, so it’s always fun to visit the market when we're back there during the summer.

Summer has officially begun and I’ve been wanting to prepare a fun dessert to make a normal family weeknight feel a bit special. I decided there’s nothing better than homemade ice cream. On Mother’s Day (two years ago) I got an ice cream maker ...
