Chicken Sausages and Roasted Grapes over Rosemary Polenta

Despite the fact that these aren’t the best photos, this dish is UH-MAZING!

Chicken Sausages and Roasted Grapes over Rosemary Polenta | spachethespatula.com #recipeIt’s super hard for me to make anything for the blog that Mikey and I can actually eat for dinner. Why? Well because I think my photos turn out best when taken in daylight as opposed to artificial light, but Mikey doesn’t usually get home from work until it’s dark.

This dish was a race against the sunset and, unfortunately, the sun won. This meant I had to set up my huge (HOT) fluorescent lights in my teeny tiny kitchen and try to snap a few decent photos in less than favorable conditions. While I can’t say I’m entirely pleased with the outcome, this dish was way too delicious not to share!

I only just got over my cherry obsession, but there are too many gorgeous, perfectly ripe grapes in the produce section of my store to ignore. Annnnd I’ve been especially interested in using them in savory applications!

Happy Tuesday, I made you the most delicious cupcakes, ever! What’s better than strawberries and cream? Strawberries and tres leches. Fact.

Summer Harvest Ice Cream---the perfect way to make the most of an abundance of beautiful fruit! | spachethespatula.com #recipe

Have a bunch of beautiful Summer fruit you need to use up quick? Make this! I do this thing in the produce section of the grocery store where I buy everything that looks good. “Everything that looks good” is usually half of everything my store has to offer. This means I have to get creative when

Figs are here! Whooo Hoo! Did you know I’m totally obsessed with figs? Mhmm. The only thing I like more is probably pumpkin (or cherries?). Okay wait… side tangent for a second. Ever since August began, people won’t shut up about how “Summer is almost over!” and “Here comes Fall!” And I want to smack

I know cherries are on their way out… …But let’s squeeze just one more recipe in before we have to declare their season officially over, please? This is a really good one.

You may be wondering how a frozen banana can be that incredible, but somehow it tastes like a delicious ice cream treat. They actually have even started selling these things in stores, but they’re so freakin’ simple, why not
