I slightly adapted Sweetapolita's watercolor buttercream recipe (linked below) for my husband and mother in law's birthday cake. I loved the idea of using edible gold leaf flecks on a cake so I purchased them (and linked them at the bottom of this post).
This is the PERFECT September dessert! Peach season is still going strong and I wanted to take advantage. The peaches provide a fresh taste that is perfect for that last leg of summer feel. The warm dessert makes it cozy for fall! Top it off with some vanilla ice cream or
Who doesn't love burrata? Seriously. Dare I say that this is one of the best burratas that I've ever had? It was so creamy but not too heavy. I went to The Cheese Shop in the West Village and obviously had to get it along with a few others. I put the burrata to good use because
I don't want to be the annoying person that brings up how summer is coming to a close but unfortunately the rumors are true. With Labor Day weekend approaching, I thought that it would be fun to share a summer tablescape idea.
I love dining al fresco in the summer! We spend a lot of time grilling on our patio but we also like to mix it up and eat in spots that have a nice view of the NYC skyline. I mean, we can see a postcard worthy scene right from
This rosé is actually named Summer Water, which I think is way too perfect. On a hot day there is no better way to cool off and "hydrate" than with a frosé. I thought about making frosé a couple of times last year but never
They even send a little booklet that tells you how to pair each of your wines with food, which I think is so cool! My readers are getting the opportunity to try Winc at a discount!You can get 4 bottles of wine for $27 instead of
Spring marks the end of hibernation season. Doesn't the warm weather make you want to throw on a sundress and invite some friends over? If so, I've got the perfect spring dessert for you to entertain with. It is almost too
The only time that I ever went to a Kentucky Derby party was in college at a frat. We all dressed up and they set up a race around the frat and made their pledges were also loving it and having so much fun
While a classic margarita is great, it's very 'been there, done that' and since it's a holiday you need to give it a little spin. These watermelon margaritas are awesome.
You know how granola makes all breakfast foods better?! I could sprinkle it on every breakfast item but I especially like/NEED it on my yogurt parfaits and acai bowls. Let's be real, I also shove it in my mouth solo
We all know the tried and true healthy breakfast options. It's not like I'm suggesting that you break up with oatmeal for life or anything but once in a while it's nice to give something else a chance. Don't worry Jay
If the word "food" doesn't pop into your mind when you think about a holiday, then you and I are probably in a fight. Holidays are great because they bring people together and what's a better activity to do together than to eat
Brie is definitely one of the best cheeses out there. I'd estimate that a third of the weight that I gained while studying abroad in Rome was a result of brie consumption and I don't regret a single bite. Basically, you can't ever go
Are you guys ready for a unique cocktail that is just the right amount of flavor?! This cocktail isn't too sweet of too bubbly. It's juuuuusstt right! I also like that it uses real food for ingredients. All of the health benefits of ginger
I'll be your lucky charm forever if you make these fun treats! Obviously you can always take the easy way out and dye your food green in celebration for St. Patrick's Day but I wanted to get a little more creative.
The hack to an easy to impressive AND easy breakfast is a waffle iron. Obviously waffles are amazing (especially when they have ice cream)! Waffle irons can be used to cook so many other items though.
This cocktail recipe takes two minutes maximum. Yes, it is that easy! It doesn't hurt that its pretty either. I always have some ginger beer in my fridge. It can take a simple cocktail and make it more exciting.
This has got to be the easiest party idea of all time. My favorite thing about this "bar" is that it is a crowd pleaser for people of all ages. I mean, who doesn't like mac and cheese?! I made this for grown ups but the toppings
Valentine's Day is all about eating treats with the excuse that it's a holiday. Oh, and love. The past few years I have made big batches of puppy chow (aka muddy buddies). Anything that involves peanut butter is a win in my book.
Looking for a fun idea for your Valentine's party? This waffle bar is calling your name then! Invite your friends over and host a Galentine's brunch with this bar. There is no better way to show
Super Bowl Sunday is just around the corner and if you're like me, you are looking forward to all of the food that comes along with it! It is a yearly tradition to eat until it hurts and I wouldn't want to stand in the way of tradition.
Are you hosting a Super Bowl party? Well, look no further for all of your party essentials. I've elevated the Super Bowl serveware a touch and compiled the ultimate list for the host and hostess.
The only bad thing about White Russians is how heavy they feel in your stomach. They weigh you down with all of the milk products. They are also pretty high in fat and calories. Low fat/High taste is where it's at.
Cookies for breakfast?! Sign me UP! These are healthy and so tasty. They are really closer to granola bars but when you make them round they're called cookies in my book. They are such a great thing to grab and go.
I know the perfect trick for making any cocktail look wintery. I love adding this garnish to champagne because people think that it is so fancy and it's so easy!
Are you looking for a festive cocktail for the holiday season? Well, you've come to the right place! Added bonus, it is so easy. The great thing about Moscow Mules is that men and women like them equally.
Truth be told, I will find any excuse to get together with my friends. I find hosting to be so gratifying. I enjoy having my home filled with people that I love laughing, talking and eating.
With some homemade whipped cream and other adaptions that I made, this “Pumpkin Better Than…Cake” comes pretty darn close to living up to its name! This is a great dessert that you can make ahead of time
