This week is all packing, packing, packing before a short trip to the #jerseyshore, and then we close on our new house next Friday. Woot! There is no time for baking, but if cherries are still available after the move, I'm gonna get on this #cherry #claufoutis. It's Julia Child's recipe, natch. Y'all got any baking plans this week?

Ricotta toast, AKA, the meal I shove in my face all summer long. Also the best way to use homemade ricotta. Also a great way to not turn on the oven in this insane heat wave we're having. Basically, ricotta toast good. Do you like ricotta toast? What do you put on it? Recipes for my two favorite ways to eat it are on the blog today (blog link in profile!).

Today I'm blathering about homemade cheese, plus a no fail recipe for fresh ricotta. It takes less than 15 minutes and is basically life-changing. Go make some ricotta. Then make a second batch and share it with friends.

Last week I made homemade ricotta. It's stupid easy and crazy delicious. The hardest part is not eating it all straight from the cheesecloth, still warm, with a little bit of honey and salt. I managed to cough up enough self-discipline to save most of it to make ricotta toast for dinner. Recipes for both #homemade #ricotta and #ricottatoast two ways will be on the blog this week.

I've been pretty quiet on here lately, but with good reason - Cam and I are in the process of buying our first house. A proper kitchen. A whole room (with a bazillion windows) dedicated to shooting. Our very own offices. Whee!! But that means packing and purging with two tiny humans, which is basically the definition of chaos. Luckily the kitchen will be the last room packed, so we're still cooking and shooting our little hearts out, and we'll have lots more to share after we get settled at the end of the month. If you're missing us (we miss you!) pop on over to the blog for this super simple sweet corn soup with gremolata. Blog link's in the profile.

This is one of those recipes that you're just a little bit skeptical of at first, but then you taste it and you do the Urkel dance around your kitchen because it's just that freakin' delicious. If you don't know this celebratory dance I speak of, go ahead and google it... I'll wait... You're welcome.

Back to this salad - warm lentils with avocado , mango, cucumber, radish and mint tossed with a super simple red wine vinaigrette. Then you slap an egg on it because reasons. Recipe's on the blog! (Blog link in profile)

We are shawarma obsessed in this house. Even the kid eats is (miracle of miracles!). On days that I'm feeling healthy, or lazy (or both) I reach for this lightened up, fresh and crunchy salad version of the classic. It's stupid easy and so perfect for these hot and steamy summer nights. Recipe's on the blog today (blog link in profile).

Long before we started blogging, @kammerun and I were a successful assignment and stock photographer/stylist team. We started Our Salty Kitchen as a creative space to experiment and try new ideas. I've learned so much from my new blogging friends about the business, so today I'm throwing back some of the love. I'm talking about tried and true strategies for successfully selling stock food photography on the blog today. Grab a coffee (or a cocktail) and pop on over to blog for a read (link in profile).

Got this #strawberry BBQ sauce up on the blog today and you guys - it's *crazy* delicious. Literally finger licking good. It's also #paleo friendly and straight-up sugar free. It's the late spring grilling sauce of my dreams. I topped the finished chicken with tarragon and the flavor combo was perfection. Get the recipe on the blog (blog link in profile).

We've all had seesawing emotions after the loss of our dear doggo. Cass, in particular, has had a rough go the last couple days. A surefire distraction for this sad mama and her boy is a baking dance party. These #glutenfree oatmeal banana chocolate chunk cookies plus the @hamiltonmusical cast recording ticked all the right boxes. We rocked it out and then ate them warm and gooey while we reminisced. Recipe coming to the blog soonish.

Yesterday we said goodbye to our beautiful boy Rocco. Our first baby. The start of our little family. The love between pet and human is indescribable. Immeasurable. Unconditional. True, pure love.

Rocco was my constant kitchen companion. His love for food was second only to his love for us (and let's be honest, sometimes it was a tie). He sat by my side, eagerly awaiting apple cores and bits of cheese while I prepared Cassian's lunch every morning. He happily cleaned the scraps from the kitchen floor during my many cooking adventures. The kids snuck him bites from their plates and let him lick their sticky hands clean.

Doggo. Rocksy. Mr. Bears. The Notorious D-O-G. You were our best friend. Our first love. Our hearts are broken, but full. Full of the joy and companionship you brought to our lives over the last decade. We already miss you, but treasure every moment we were blessed to share with you. xoxo
