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!
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!
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!)
Entertaining season is in full swing and prepping meals for a house full of guests can be daunting, especially during the holiday season when all of us have a million things on our minds, and schedules. But today’s recipe will help make breakfast a breeze and will please even the pickiest of eaters. These easy fruit danishes come together in no time, bake up to a perfectly flakey golden brown, and are filled with yummy fruit filling! Plus, there’s no hard work on your end either and you don’t have to be a pastry master to pull them off. With a few grocery items, you’ll have breakfast in the bag!

I’m a huge fan of semi-homemade meals. I can remember watching Sandra Lee on the Food Network when I was younger and I still love the idea of using some store bought items and some homemade ones, to get dinner on the table quickly. With the holiday season coming up and busy schedules on the rise, getting a meal on the table that doesn’t involve going through the drive thru first, is a challenge in and of itself. Plus, when the weather gets colder outside, I crave easy, warm dinners that don’t require a lot of effort on my part. Today, I’m sharing an easy meal idea, that’s perfect for the family and also includes a recipe for easy focaccia bread sticks too!

Whenever fall hits, I seem to go into hibernation mode. It’s cold and all I want to do when I get home from work is to slip into cozy sweatpants, enjoy something hearty and warm for dinner, and watch one of the endless shows that I always seem to be behind on. (Maybe I just try to watch too many things? Anyone else have this problem?) The last thing I want to do, is to sit in the kitchen all night long, prepping dinner. And that’s where today’s recipe comes into play. These easy stuffed green peppers are delicious and also perfect to make in advance and freeze until you’re ready to eat them. Which means only 30 minutes for a delicious weeknight meal!
They are also perfect to prep in advance for a big dinner party or holiday entertaining that you might have coming up on your calendars. Make them on a weekend when you have some time, and pop them into the oven on the day of your event with no stress on your part!
