After a pretty heavy week, now seems like a good time to gather with the people you love and share food around a table. With that in mind, I’ve got a few Memorial Day favorites, along with recipes to take you into the week. And if you’ve never tackled my delicious and decadent ice cream pie, it’s one I pull out when the weather turns warm that never disappoints. On the lighter size is the easy, peasy Raspberry Sorbet at the very bottom of the post.

Grilled Chicken Kebab Wraps

A spiced yogurt marinade makes this chicken flavorful and fork-tender. Do these skewers on the grill and then tuck into warm flatbread with tomatoes, cucumbers and crunchy lettuce. You could skip the vegetables here and make the Fattoush Salad below to serve on the side and tuck into the wraps.

Instant Pot Chipotle Raspberry Ribs

The Instant Pot does a bang up job with ribs and this recipe is always a hit. If you are doing these for a Memorial Day gathering, consider this watermelon salad as a tasty side.

Paprika-Spiced Skillet Shrimp and Corn

Paprika Shrimp with Corn

A super quick one-pan supper. It’s best with fresh corn, but frozen corn will work, too. One of my favorite sides is to take a couple of whole grain pita breads and split them open. Spread lightly with softened butter, add pinch of salt and a light shower of grated Parmesan. Put under the broiler until just barely brown. Cut in half.  (It’s one I learned from my mom and is seriously good)

Fattoush Salad

I consider this the Lebanese version of Italy’s panzanella. It’s a generous, crunchy salad with toasted pita tossed in and a lemony, garlic-spiked dressing. Serve it as a side to your Memorial Day repast, or make it a weekday main by adding a can of chickpeas or sliced chicken breast.

Vegetarian No-Noodle Lasagna

A simple supper that is a hit with omnivores, vegetarians, gluten-free folks, and anyone looking to cook up a surplus of zucchini. It’s also an excellent “gateway recipe” for those who aren’t yet super fans of tofu.

Ice Cream Pie with Chocolate Crust and Toffee

Easy Ice Cream Pie with Chocolate Crust and Toffee Bits

I figured I’d throw in my favorite warm weather treat for the holiday weekend. We’ve been making this for years in our family and it is so darn good. Leftovers are just as tasty several days later.

Blender Raspberry Sorbet

I love this sorbet so much that I really want you to make it. It’s creamy and tangy, is done entirely in a food processor, has just three ingredients, and will take you about five minutes to make. Head here to see me make it over on Instagram.
