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.
It's already been a crazy spring. I have a newborn baby, a new born book, and a book/media tour underway. This girl needs a drink! Luckily, Seersucker Gin graciously sent me a bottle of their liquor and I happily got to work to create a perfect springtime cocktail that is light and fresh and perfect for the warmer days ahead.
The best way to take advantage of the beautiful, warm days ahead is with a picturesque picnic eaten in a lovely al fresco setting. There’s something about eating outdoors, and on a blanket, that makes food taste slightly more delicious.
As summer slides into fall, I find myself savoring the flavors of the sunny season. I am truly enjoying the last of the peaches, squash and corn until they come again next June. Late summer tomatoes, fresh herbs and citrus fill the final hot weeks. As the days get shorter, I am craving quick and easy meals that are not only light and fresh but feel special and celebratory as we say goodbye to summer.
To celebrate St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, I wanted to make something green. I'm usually an all-neautral-kind-of-gal but lately I've been craving bright colors and warmer Spring days.
A good Caesar Salad is one of my favorite things. What makes a Caesar Salad "good?" FRESH Caesar dressing. You can make this restaurant favorite at home in a flash ... and you'll never buy a bottle of Caesar dressing again!
This Cream Cheese Pound Cake is a long time family favorite. I decided to take it up a notch by adding fresh blueberries from the Farmers' Market and a Lemon Honey Glaze.
Summer's freshest lemons and blueberries make for fabulously delicious homemade muffins. Just out of the oven, these puppies are the perfect breakfast treat.
Continuing on my health kick (post holiday cleanse) I'm trying to incorporate more vegetables into my daily diet. It seems so easy to get my daily allotment of fruit (berries in oatmeal for breakfast, apple for a snack) but vegetables seem more difficult to work in.
