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 my simple homemade tabouli recipe that is an easy salad and always a crowd pleaser.  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!

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 dill  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.

Bruschetta Quiche

Finally, the chickens have returned to laying eggs on a regular basis. This is how I know spring is surely here! This week I found myself needing to use up eggs. My all time favorite way to use up eggs is to make quiche. Try serving this lighter variety quiche with a salad or a cup of soup. Either way, it’s delicious!

Homemade Mushroom and Rice Soup

I’ve been under the weather this past week and trying to resume eating. I haven’t really eaten anything in days and have decided to ease back into it with soups. I have always loved soups and this past week, I was inspired by Once Upon a Time in a Bed of Wildflowers‘ link up to this week’s blog hop. I had the strength to gather what I needed at the grocery store to create a hearty, delicious soup that seemed to feel just right in my empty belly.

Crab Cakes

Living by the sea has wonderful opportunities for families. One of my favorite things to do is to head on down to the local inlet and go crabbing.  Sometimes we only catch a few and other times, we fill an entire bucket.  The quantity never seems to matter, the fun is always there. Somehow, someone always gets covered in muck!  A great way to introduce the kids to seafood is by serving up crab cakes.  They are not too fishy and taste delicious.  Serve these up with a dipping sauce of your choice.  Today, I’m sharing my original recipe.
