Pitcher Drinks

We often set up a full bar when we have people over, but there is something great about making a pitcher of drinks that people can help themselves to!  Here were a couple drinks we mixed up last weekend:

Cucumber Gin Cooler

Strawberry Basil Margarita

106 Strawberry Basil Margarita* The margarita recipe is on the sweet side, so I would recommend cutting it with club soda if you aren’t into sweeter drinks!

Flower Power


I love the idea of a gorgeous hostess gift, but sometimes a pricey candle or bottle of wine just isn’t in the budget.  My latest obsession has been going to the farmers market and picking up some gorgeous blooms then using gift wrapping paper to create my own bouquet.

024 026I found this awesome polka dotted craft paper that has some weight to it (trimmed/folded the paper accordingly to get that streamlined presentation) and then grabbed some tulle to tie it all together (twine, ribbon, raffia, etc. are all great options).  Attach a little gift tag… or write a note straight on the paper!

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites with Blue Cheese Dip

Buffalo BitesPintrest is not great when it comes to swimsuit friendly recipes, so between seeing pinned buffalo chicken mac and cheese and buffalo queso recipes, I had a hankering for something buffalo that was still bikini-body friendly.   So when I came across these Buffalo Cauliflower Bites I was excited to try them out.  They were easy to whip up and the blue cheese dip is going to be my new go to!  The best part: even J liked them!
