I’m getting soooo excited for warmer weather guys! It was finally warm enough to get outside and go hiking yesterday and it made me daydream about all of the other adventures I can start planning for the next few months. I’m on a mission to really get out and explore Utah this Summer and I’m itching to get things crossed off of the bucket list! Outdoor parties, days by the pool, and summer dinners on the patio! Which brings me to another thing that I’m looking forward to with warmer weather…fresh produce! With Easter around the corner, I wanted to share some tips to create your own easy Spring crudité platter, using fresh produce! So pretty, so colorful and very, very easy to put together too!

You may be thinking that it’s a little too early to be posting about funfetti marshmallow ice cream sandwiches already, but spring is right around the corner and I’m allllll about doing as much as I can to start celebrating warmer weather a little early! And what better way to do that, than with ice cream? And not just any ice cream….marshmallow PEEPS® ice cream!
March 17th celebrates the traditional date of death of Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. St. Patrick’s Day also happens to be celebrated in more countries than any other national festival! Crazy, right?! But for most people, it’s just an excuse to drink green beer, dress like a leprechaun, and eat traditional Irish grub! And an excuse for me to make cute kitschy desserts too! This year, I’m not waiting around to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…I’m making my own pot of gold with these St. Patrick’s Day Golden Coin Cookies!
Oscar’s weekend is upon us and whether you’re planning to throw a big blow out party, have a few friends over, or just plan to curl up and watch in your pj’s, I have the EASIEST appetizer for you to add to your party menu! These blackberry, goat cheese and honey appetizers are glam enough to be the star of the show, but they are also delicious! And that golden honey drizzle is definitely Oscar worthy!
I’m definitely more of a stay home and celebrate Valentine’s day kinda girl. I don’t love waiting hours for dinner at a restaurant, or making reservations 3 months in advance, but any excuse to make a delicious dessert to share with someone special….yep, count me in. And this one is a total winner! It’s easy to make, quick to bake, and who doesn’t love a warm cookie with a gooey center? Plus, it’s the perfect size for two! And did I mention red velvet? This red velvet skillet cookie for two just might become your new fave…and for good reason!
Skip the take and bake and make some homemade pizza from scratch! It’s a lot easier than you think and this spicy chicken sausage pizza recipe is a great place to start 😉
The dough and sauce can be make ahead of time, which means less time in the kitchen. And another great thing about this pizza is that you bake it in a sheet pan! No fancy pizza pan needed!
Breakfast has to be my favorite meal of the day. (Brunch included). I always loved when my mom would make it for dinner when I was growing up and I still make breakfast for dinner even now. (Because, let’s be honest, breakfast for dinner is ahhhh-mazing). I plan my vacations around which breakfast spots I want to try, and I’m the first to suggest a brunch get together with friends. To say my life revolves around breakfast is a bit of a stretch, but not too far off. If there’s a griddle involved, I’m there. And these blueberry waffles with lemon curd are no exception. Fresh blueberries take this homemade waffle batter to another level and the lemon curd….sooooooo good. They are the perfect meal to make for breakfast or brunch this weekend (or dinner, if you’re feeling crazy 😉 )
I’m all about a yummy citrus cocktail, especially in the middle of citrus season when citrus fruits are at their peak. And one that’s easy to make AND gorgeous? SOLD.
Luckily, this easy paloma cocktail recipe hits all the marks. It’s full of delicious grapefruit, is oh so pretty, and even has a grapefruit sugar rim…what’s not to like? When you see how simple it is to make, it might just become your new fave. (It’s definitely one of mine!)
