Sip It :: Lime Coconut Margarita

Coconut Margarita

She put the lime in the coconut, she drank ‘em bot’ up …

I can’t get this song out of my head. But seriously, this was such a good idea. It’s like my Cinco de Mayo just went Hawaiian. The result? A delicious lime + coconut margarita that is a little sweet and a little salty and all sorts of refreshing. Serve them up in a coconut shell and close your eyes because it’ll be just like you’re on vacation. :)

Serve it :: Cantaloupe, Prosciutto, Basil + Mozzarella Salad

Cantaloupe, Prosciutto, Basil and Mozzarella Salad
Remember those cantaloupe + prosciutto appetizers I shared a couple of weeks ago? Well, I had some ingredients left over and sort of made this salad by accident. It’s full of flavor, really fresh, and so unique that it feels like a treat. Make it for yourself, or increase the ingredient portions and make a batch for a crowd. I think you’ll impress your guests for sure!

The Simplest Easter Treats Ever

This post is sponsored Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

Easter is a couple of weeks away and we have a tradition of putting on a big Eggstravaganza at a local park. Big crowd, lots of kids, games, egg hunt … and, of course, treats! Oh, the treats.

This year I was thinking of easy recipes for kids that were both easy to make (my daughter loves making Easter treats–check out her Easter candy bark from last year), and easy to eat while running around at the park.

And then it hit me –graham cracker and frosting sandwiches! When I was a kid, my mom used to make these when she had leftover frosting. They are the simplest things ever but just so yummy. No kid can resist (even the grown up kinds).

I started by making a batch of cream cheese frosting. The rich flavor of the Philadelphia Cream Cheese makes this simple dessert feel like a real treat. And since this is an Easter dessert, I chose three bright colors to mix in.

Once your frosting is made, all you have to do is spread it on one side of a graham cracker and then sandwich it with another. It is THAT simple.

I just got my first donut pan. I know, where have I been, right? I couldn’t wait to test it out and as I began dreaming up all the different types of donut recipes I could make, I kept coming back to one of my favorites –sprinkled cake donuts.

Serve It :: Cantaloupe & Prosciutto Small Bites

This post is sponsored by Kellogg’s, all thoughts are my own.

Last week I hosted a few girlfriends over for what we called a #girlboss session. I shared my inspiration board for the night which included a few really simple ideas. Since the point of the night was to gather for some productive creative business brainstorming … there was no reason (or time!) to fuss over over-the-top details.

I made really, really simple small bites the gals could grab throughout the evening. And although they were really easy to make, they were very flavorful. Proof, that it doesn’t need to be fussy to be impressive. These Cantaloupe & Prosciutto Small Bites were a huge hit (recipe at end of the post).
Townhouse13Since the point of the evening was to brainstorm creative business ideas, notebooks and pencils were a must. I set out the pretty supplies with the tray of small bites and some fresh Meyer lemon + mint water carafes.
