Homemade Tabouli

Tilly's Nest- tabouli (1)wp

Summer time brings warm weather and that means eating plenty of cool foods in our household. One of my favorites is tabouli (or taboulli or taboulleh- depends who you talk to). This is a simple easy salad that is always a crowd pleaser and I’m here to tell you that it is SO simple to make. It’s also super delicious! Try eating it plain or scooping it up with pita chips.

Easy Holiday Fudge

 

Fudge is a holiday classic around here and we love to make during this time of year as gifts for friends and family treats. This recipe is easy and you can certainly substitute any type of chocolate chips. Try your own combinations including mint chips, butterscotch, semi-sweet chocolate and white chocolate. Our favorite is peanut butter!

Giveaway: Wonderbag + Butternut Squash and Carrot Curry Soup

Every once in a while, you come across a new product that can revolutionize the way we cook.

A few weeks ago, I received a Wonderbag in the mail. I was thrilled. The Wonderbag promised slow cooker results without any need for electricity or gas. Oh my goodness, as a family that uses our crock pot a few times a week in the winter, I had to try it!

Honey Berry Blast: Williams-Sonoma Juice Week

This week I was invited by Williams-Sonoma to participate in Juice Week and share one of my favorite juice recipe. A huge inspiration for my love of juicing comes from the local harvests around us on Cape Cod. Whether from our local farmer’s market or fresh from our garden and berry patch my family regularly enjoys fresh juices throughout the growing season. This time of year it’s berry season and a few weeks ago we harvested honey from our beehives. This juice combines all of that deliciousness. This is one of the kids’ favorite juices. It tends to blur the lines between juice and smoothie and it comes together in mere minutes.

Fresh Dill Pickles

Overnight, it seems we are pulling cucumbers out by the dozen these days. That can only mean one thing, it’s pickle making season here at Tilly’s Nest. I love to make these simple refrigerator pickles. There is no canning or hot water bath to immerse these babies in. Simply wash your jars and lids with hot soapy water and you are ready to get to work.

Rustic Berry Galette

Galettes are delicious. They are also incredibly versatile and can be filled with meats, cheeses, vegetables, and fruits. Right now berries are plentiful and we had a surplus of strawberries and blueberries. Today, the youngest one and I made an improvised galette. This dish is so simple to make and it comes together in no time. Even non-bakers can pull this one off! The best part is it looks rustic and tastes delicious.
