FRESH HOMEMADE PASTA

FRESH HOMEMADE PASTA

HAPPY NATIONAL PASTA DAY!

I hope you all enjoy pasta as much as I do, if not you might be reading the wrong blog post. As it is National Pasta Day, a holiday I think we can all get on board with, I decided to make pasta from scratch. I am not an expert by any means, this is harder than it looks and it takes some time, not to mention, the mess! But, it is SO much fun to make your own pasta. This would be a great date night activity or fun to make when you have friends over, just make sure you start early if you want to eat by 7pm. Continue reading “FRESH HOMEMADE PASTA”

WHIPPED FETA & HONEY DIP

WHIPPED FETA & HONEY DIP

As fall approaches, I am spending less time outside and more time at home or entertaining friends. I love to entertain people, it feels good to welcome others and make them feel at home. Drinks are great to keeping the party going, but food and snacks are a must. So, I have been on the hunt for snacks that are moderately healthy and delicious.

I began searching feta recipes, the best kinds of feta, and where to get fresh feta…you get the idea. I came across a recipe that I am in love with!

SKINNY WATERMELON MOJITO

If you don’t get excited about a full day of eating tacos, we can’t be friends. I’m kidding (not really), but tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and I am pumped! Most people love margaritas… I just can’t do it. I feel like everyone has that one alcohol that they say “never again” to, for me that is tequila. I can’t stand the smell or the taste so I am all about daiquiris and mojitos!

I have (not so patiently) been waiting for spring. According to the calendar, it’s springtime but someone forgot to tell the weather. Even though it’s still chilly I am ready to start making fun and fruity cocktails, starting with a Grapefruit Rosemary Spritzer.

THE PERFECT RECIPE FOR BREAKFAST IN BED

THE PERFECT RECIPE FOR BREAKFAST IN BED

The best start to the day is being able to stay tucked in bed, cuddled up next to your favorite person (your dog counts). These days call for breakfast in bed, I like easy breakfasts because the easier the recipe, the sooner you get to climb back into bed. It’s okay to treat yourself and lazy sometimes!
