One of the recipes she's made frequently was just right for a girls sewing day last weekend, and luckily I found it after a quick search. The whole meal was casual, tasty, and perfect for summer and I thought you might enjoy it. Just click through each title for the recipes.
Rosé Sangria from The Pioneer Woman
The fruit and wine are combined a day ahead. Rather than topping off
with sparkling wine, we used lemon-lime soda at serving time.
Oven-Baked Parmesan Chicken Breasts with Bruschetta Tomato Topping from Kathy Casey
I was generous with the arugula, so we added just a little balsamic vinaigrette.
Pavlovas with Strawberries and Balsamic from bakingamoment.com
The meringues seemed large when I served them, but honest fact: we each ate every bite.
Apologies to those of you in winter-mode. Though do tell, Australians! I hear pavlovas are very popular there. Do you eat them all year round? Are there seasonal versions? Enlighten us in the comments. And as for my coworker's recipe files . . . I need to remember my own good advice!
