We just moved into a new neighborhood a few months ago and we have been really luck to meet some amazing new neighbors. I was so excited when we saw that the neighborhood was throwing a block party for Halloween so that I could meet some of the neighbors we haven’t had a chance to meet yet. It was such an amazing time and the kids had a blast – and so did the adults! My husband decided to make one of his favorite cocktails and I thought it would be a perfect recipe to share. My favorite part of this drink were the ice cubes. Typically we use an ice cube tray that makes one large ice cube so that the drink doesn’t get watered down, but I had this adorable vampire teeth ice cube tray and I was so excited to use it. Here is my husband’s simple and yummy recipe for an Old Fashioned.
Last weekend I had company over for brunch and I needed items that I could make quickly and that would be toddler and adult friendly. I threw together these delicious parfaits and they were a big hit with everyone! They were so simple and looked great on a buffet table! I made them about an hour before my guests arrived and put them in the fridge until I was ready to serve. I served these in rocks glasses, but you can really serve them in whatever glasses you have! These would also be super cute in stemless champagne flutes or small mason jars. Enjoy!
Cool nights call for easy dinners that fill you up and keep you warm and one of my absolute favorites is this 7 ingredient chicken tortilla soup recipe. If you are trying to cut time, just substitute the uncooked chicken for a rotisserie and you are set! I have made this soup 100 times and it still makes my heart happy. What are some of your favorite cool weather recipes?
Ever since my husband and I moved in together, we have made an effort to eat all of our meals at the table instead of in front of the TV. This became especially important when we started a family. One of my all-time favorite traditions is our weekend pancake breakfasts. I wake up and make pancakes each Saturday and Sunday morning while my husband watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse with the kiddos. It’s a crazy dance party and it is absolutely fantastic.
As the days of summer start to wind down, I thought it would be the perfect time to make one of my all-time favorite summer snacks. Growing up I used to LOVE ice cream sandwiches and I thought what better way to cool off than with a variation on the American classic. I decided to try something new by creating a banana pudding style ice cream sandwich. With just a few easy steps and even fewer ingredients, you too can have this delicious summer treat! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
