If you’ve never made your own Fried Rice at home, this recipe will show you how easy, and versatile it is! This fried rice is inspired from the same restaurant as our Sweet and Spicy Honey-Grilled Shrimp. It’s not your typical Chinese restaurant-type fried rice; it’s a bit milder and has a little more Polynesian…

I recently shared a recipe for Roasted Rosemary Pineapple, and while the first time I had it, it was served as a solo salad, I really felt like it would be delicious over some sort of grilled protein.  I created this complimentary grilled flank steak marinade to highlight the sweet and savory flavors of the…

Independence Day is this week! At our house, it’s time for lots of Hamilton, fireworks, popsicles, and grilling! As we head into this week, I thought I’d share some of our favorite 4th of July recipes! Speaking of grilling, if you haven’t bought our Summer, Simplified meal plan (7 weeks of dinners that can all be made…

I know. Some of you are saying, “Hey, Kate, it’s not 1989! Fruit pizza hasn’t been cool for, like, 20 years now.” Well, I’m here to tell you that I’m bringing it back, baby. I don’t care if it was served at the baby shower held for your mother when she was pregnant with you–it…

Last month I ate at a hotel with a crazy good restaurant buffet.  One of the dishes in the salad bar, roasted pineapple chunks, caught my attention because it combined two flavors I had never thought to pair together: Pineapple and Rosemary (insert puzzled face emoji, here.) Much to my surprise, the flavor of this…

“WTH is Blueberry Grunt,” I can hear collectively from across the blogosphere. That’s a great question. A grunt is a fruit-and-biscuit dessert, much like cobbler, but also different because it’s called a grunt and WHO thought that was a good name for a dessert? Unlike a cobbler, which is baked in the oven (resulting in…

Let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way–I’m Kate and could probably be classified as a foodie. And I like hot dogs. People are always surprised when I tell them I like hot dogs. It started when I was a teenager and people would be like, “Ew, you’re eating that??” And it’s true,…

  This spicy honey chicken is one of my family’s favorite meals. Both kids and adults gobble it up every time I make it.  I love the combo of a savory spice rub combined with a sweet honey glaze and it doesn’t hurt that it’s pretty quick and easy either! You don’t have to think…

I don’t know the origins of the brookie (brownie + cookie) but after one of you emailed recently saying you used some of our recipes for brookies, it made me realize we’ve never actually shared a recipe here on Our Best Bites.  My quick and easy brookie recipe is a combination of homemade, plus a…

When I was a kid, my mom’s plan was to teach me to cook so I would someday be a somewhat functional adult. I mean, we all kind of plan that, or at least think about it sometimes, right? Before she died when I was 9, I hadn’t learned a whole lot, but I had…

One of my favorite summer meals is a charcuterie board/snack tray/appetizer platter/whatever you want to call it. We have a post about how to create amazing, epic boards, but most of the time, I’m not going to be creating huge, multi-board spreads. I also am not crazy about a lot of the meats that are…

Brazilian Lemonade is our most favorite drink, ever.  I fell it love with it while living in Brazil where at most restaurants and homes, fresh squeezed tropical beverages are the norm. It’s tart, but sweet- made with fresh limes and a secret ingredient (spoiler alert: it’s sweetened condensed milk) that makes it mildly creamy.  It…
