Baked Salmon in Parchment Paper 0

Salmon in Parchment Paper (or "Salmon en Papillote" in French) is one of my favorite summer dishes--it's so light, so flavorful and so EASY. Total prep and coking time is under 30 minutes, which makes it a perfect weeknight meal! It's also a perfect meal for entertaining because it has such a pretty presentation, and you can serve it right from the pouch too for an extra special touch.  In this version, I'm using lemon, cherry tomatoes, capers and thyme to bring the flavor, but there are endless combinations that you put inside your pouch...

Homemade Fresh Fruit Popsicles Recipe 0

One of our favorite summer pastimes at Grant Central is making delicious homemade fresh fruit popsicles. They're such a healthier alternative to most of the store-bought varieties and they are SO easy to make! In this episode of #TheRicheLife, #miniboss and I are showing you how to make our favorite flavors--strawberry and pineapple-coconut--and a yummy mix of the two as well. Our red, white and blueberry pops even made a sweet cameo too (see what I did there?!). The basics that you'll need to make these and most other flavor combinations are fresh fruit and a liquid...

Grilled Pound Cake with Mixed Berries and Fresh Whipped Cream 0

This is a super simple summer recipe that you can make even easier by using store-bought pound cake. YES! Once you grill it and add the mixed berries and fresh lemon-infused whipped cream, all you'll be thinking about is how much you LOVE this combination of flavors.

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings Recipe 0

These Garlic Rosemary Parmesan wings are moist, flavorful and crispy with each delicious bite, perfect for cooking indoors or outside on the grill too!  I made them for the first time after a loyal fan of The Riche Life told me that she used the garlic-rosemary marinade from my Easter lamb chops on party wings for one of her kids who doesn't like lamb. Her wings turned out so well that I had to try them too, except I added fresh grated Parmesan cheese and a tangy Greek yogurt dipping sauce to give the wings their own unique...

Mango Guacamole with Blackened Shrimp Recipe 0

Our family loves guacamole, and I originally posted this recipe in 2015, when I showed #miniboss (who was then #toddlerboss) and her classmates how to make it.  Below is the the original post from January 2015, with additional updated information on how to make the grown-up version with blackened shrimp, as shown on The Riche Life. The sweetness of the mango balances the heat from the blackened shrimp so well (seriously, you will love this!), and the dish is so hearty that you can actually eat it as a small meal by itself. I know because I've done it...
