Sun dried tomato pasta with shrimp, capers, basil, and toasted pine nuts

Sun dried tomato pasta with shrimp, capers, basil, and toasted pine nuts

This sundried tomato pasta recipe has a very light sauce made of olive oil and white wine but is packed with flavors. The combination of the sun dried tomatoes, capers, shallots, garlic, fresh basil and pine nuts add a TON of textures and flavors to the pasta dish so that you don’t need to load it up with a heavy sauce. We added shrimp to this recipe but we’re sure it would be tasty with chicken or as a vegetable pasta recipe too.

Asparagus and English Pea Pasta with Pancetta & Shrimp

Asparagus and English Pea Pasta with Pancetta & Shrimp

We decided to create a new pasta recipe that was something different than the same ‘ol spaghetti and meatballs. We started with some springtime greens. Asparagus is at peak season as well as peas. Cooking seasonally helps you to bring in additional flavor in a healthy way. These two veggies added a brightness to this dish to contract against the salty pancetta. You can never go wrong with a touch of bacon in ANY recipe, right?!?

Fro Yo Bark

It's Texas... It's August... It's hotttt.

Fro Yo Bark Recipe

We're always looking for ways to beat the heat, and desserts are one of the more fun ways to do so! (Cold cocktails and the pool are also top choices).

This was our first time making frozen yogurt bark and were FLOORED by how easy it was! 3 minutes prep, some freeze time and BOOM, we had a really cool and versatile dessert. Choose any yogurt flavor and any fruit and the possibilities are endless!

We decided to use Noosa Yoghurt because of it's unique, velvety texture. Their lemon flavor paired perfectly with some plump summer blueberries, and the lemon zest made it all that much more refreshing. 

Frozen Yogurt Bark Recipe

Here is how to make it at home!

Ingredients:

  • One tub lemon Noosa Yoghurt
  • 15-20 blueberries
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Parchment paper
  • Tinfoil
Blueberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt Bark

Start by grabbing a cookie sheet or baking dish (make sure this will fit in your freezer) and cover the bottom with a sheet of parchment paper. Next, spread the yogurt across the parchment paper until it is smooth and about 1/2 inch thick. Top with your blueberries and lemon zest. Now cover the top of the pan in tinfoil and pop it in your freezer overnight. The next day, simply break the sheet of fro yo bark into bite sized pieces. So Easy! 

Keep cool out there, friends!
