egg in a hole
pan-seared sausage with lady apples
You don’t actually have to be at a campfire to enjoy s’mores. But newsflash: If you’re still microwaving marshmallows, you’re doing it wrong. Update your indoor s’mores technique with this recipe that’s low in mess and high in tastiness.
sausage jalapeño sourdough pizza
secret ingredient peanut butter stuffed chocolate chip skillet cookie
blackened shrimp, bacon, and green onion cast iron skillet quesadilla
This one-pan recipe first requires cooking the bacon and shrimp before adding more butter to the pan to melt together the ultimate quesadilla. If you’re in a home, baking is recommended, but over an open fire works, too.
skillet caramelized pineapple sundaes
This sweeter than sweet dessert calls for only seven ingredients, including a fresh cut pineapple. Sizzle your pineapple rings in a homemade mixture of butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon for a saucy, sugary treat topped with vanilla ice cream. Swoon.

This one-pan recipe takes only 30 minutes total to make from scratch and is ideal for those hot summer nights when you still want something warm and cheesy (aka most nights). Make use of your favorite seasonal veggies and enjoy!

Summer is the season of stone fruit, which never fails to excite both our healthy and more indulgent cravings. This recipe definitely falls in the latter category. The spiced crust paired with the sweet, fruity filling (and topped with basil blossoms) makes our dessert dreams come true.

skillet baked oats with maple glazed apples
Licking the skillet is suggested, but not required, after finishing this out of this world breakfast that more closely resembles your favorite delicious dessert. (Just make sure the pan isn’t still scorching hot!)
italian sausage, spinach, cherry tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and mozzarella pizza
chipotle sweet potato noodle salad with roasted corn
