I bet you didn’t know that we have a couple of ametuer (emphasis on that) chefs here at House House! Or rather, we have people who really enjoy cooking and sharing recipes, and people will grill you on checking ingredients so you know what’s in your body (looking at you, Nathan Rea).
Jokes aside, we decided to throw some water on the stove and get our brains boiling to come up with a few recipes you’ll enjoy this summer. So from the Helix House table to yours, enjoy!
Peach panzanella with burrata is a sweet and light lunch that goes perfectly with a warm day. We found it years ago on Delish and it’s become a summer staple. Never heard of a panzanella or burrata? We don’t blame you.
Panzanella or panmolle is a Tuscan chopped salad of soaked bread, onions and tomatoes that is popular in the summer. It often includes cucumbers, sometimes basil and is dressed with olive oil and vinegar.
Delish substituted the tomatoes for peaches to give it an amazing summery sweet flavor. Putting a twist on this recipe by adding a scoop of burrata cheese to bring the flavor palette together.
The best part? It only takes about 30 minutes to make, from prep to serving. This recipe serves about 4 people. You’ll need…
If you don’t have gazpacho in the summer, you’re missing out. Classic gazpacho can run the gamut from smooth-as-silk to “bring out the chips and let me eat this like salsa.” It all depends on your preferences. That’s the beauty of gazpacho — it’s almost impossible to make it wrong!
Well, not impossible. You don’t want to add too much garlic to this recipe. Trust us, stick with the recommended amount this time. Oh, and fresh snipped chives are always a must!
We also garnished this soup with a simple mix of sour cream thinned down with a little water. You can eat it alone or serve it with grilled shrimp and avocado.

If you love easy recipes that pack a huge punch of flavor, these roasted cauliflower tacos are for you. They’re jam-packed with flavor from the roasted cauliflower, aromatic spices, and a zingy avocado sauce — trust us, you’ll LOVE these.
