Roast Chicken Legs with Braised Kale and White Beans​​​​​​​

Whole chicken legs might be my favorite cut of chicken to roast, as you get the crispy skin and lots of tender meat plus they make for a beautiful presentation.

Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Boats

Squash Blossom & Ricotta Pizza

One of my favorite recent discoveries is squash blossoms. They are in season in summer and are often found at local farmers markets, since they are often too delicate and go bad too quickly for most grocery stores to keep them in stock. Whenever I see them hit the stalls in summer I have to grab some – they are just too pretty to pass up.

With this pizza you get sweet and savory flavors with just the right amount of spice. The sausage and Calabrian chilies contrast perfectly with the honey drizzled on top of the pizza just before serving.

Cajun Shrimp with Cheesy Grits and Bacon Braised Collard Greens

The South knows shrimp and grits. If you aren’t familiar with grits they are a type of porridge made from ground corn similar to a polenta. In my opinion they are always better with cheese (I mean, what isn’t?!).
