Spring is always an exciting time of year to kick off at-home entertaining. With the weather getting warmer, and kids soon out of school—there’s lots to celebrate! Kick off your sunny-season entertaining with two of my very favorite hors d'oeuvres: Peach and Prosciutto Crostini with Whipped Honey Ricotta AND Spring Pea Pesto Crostini.
Homemade pizza night is one of our favorite family dinner nights. E loves to help press out the dough and laughs so loud when I throw it in the air, yelling "peazzA."
Last weekend my girlfriends and I went to Josephine for a girls night and we had the most amazing meal. We ordered several different things on the menu to share and I think the Zucchini and Squash Ribbon Salad was unanimously our favorite dish. It inspired me to go home and make my own version!
Valentine's Day is tomorrow! What are you doing with your significant other for dinner? While it seems like most people like to go out on Valentine's night—I always like to stay in and make a special dinner for my sweetie. There is nothing more romantic than dinner and a bottle of wine at home by the fireplace. Skip the hoopla of a crowded restaurant on a greeting card holiday and make a fresh, healthy meal that tastes as good as it feels special.
Something I always like to keep in my refrigerator is fresh pesto. It is so versatile and makes putting a meal together really easy. Traditional pesto is made with basil and pine nuts (which tend to be really expensive). I like to change it up with these two recipes.
