We love to serve this simple baked stuffed pepper recipe with a fresh Caesar salad and some crusty bread along side.

It looks like I have a new go-to appetizer for holiday entertaining!

These stuffed mushroom appetizers are a bit of a trick.  They feel “meaty” yet they are completely vegetarian.  (They can even be made vegan by skipping the cheese on top.)

There is even a bit of dry white wine used in the recipe, that way the rest of the bottle can be enjoyed with you guests!

This “Marinated Summer Squash” is a beautiful cold appetizer presentation that is perfect for late summer entertaining.  Yellow and green squash are still in season, so now is the ideal time to make this dish.  I love how subtle flavors of garlic and sage are infused into the squash.

Best part is, everything can (and should) be made the day before, so you can sit back and enjoy a glass of wine with your guests!
