  • Peach Caprese Salad with Toasted Garlic Naan...with a spicy, sweet champagne vinaigrette too.  I. LOVE. This. Salad. It's bright, colorful, and full of grilled peaches, tomatoes, basil, creamy burrata cheese, and salty prosciutto. It's GOOD. Kind of like summer on a plate, but with so much flavor. And the toasted garlic naan? Think pita chips, but with naan. game changer. Shared the recipe on HBH --> linked in profile. Get at it 🍑 #eeeeeats #howisummer #buzzfeast #imsomartha #f52grams #burrata
  • Balsamic Peach Spritz 🍑 the new Aperol spritz? Similar, yet different, but most importantly, so dang GOOD --> sweet peach jam, a splash of tart white balsamic vinegar, topped off with prosecco. It's a touch sweet and bubbly and you should make it. And soon. Summer is all about treating weekdays, like weekends, so a cocktail on a Tuesday just seems fitting. I'm very into it. Recipe on HBH - linked in profile. #hbhcocktailsaturday #howisummer #peach
  • Bucatini Amatriciana. The fanciest name for a super simple pasta that is extra delicious --> cherry tomatoes, guanciale (...or pancetta if you are like me and can't find guanciale), fresh rosemary, Pecorino cheese, so much black pepper, and bucatini. Not a lot of ingredients, but so much flavor. Learned this classic Italian style pasta from @clairethomas and trust me I was skeptical, but I promise you it's so good. Sharing the recipe on HBH today (linked in profile). PS. the fun video of us making this together is coming very soon. #pasta #howisummer #imsomartha #feedfeed
  • Homemade Animal Crackers 🐘🐒 Why? Because it's Monday and Monday's should involve something sweet and something fun. Also because it's summer and I really just love taking things back to my childhood days. SO. Homemade ANIMAL CRACKERS it is --> mini cinnamon baked animal cookies dipped into a sweet berry-colored glaze (summer = natural food coloring). Nothing not to love. Suggestion? Skip out on work early, go home and make animal crackers all afternoon. Best Monday decision yet. Recipe linked in profile. #cookies #feedfeed #howisummer #summerrecipes #f52grams
