3 Weekend Worthy Cocktails

We did it! Congratulations! Go ahead and pat yourself on the back. After all, it's been no easy task to get through this week. I had a stomach bug and Kristin was traveling. I'd say getting through both of those things deserves a long distance clink of the ol' glasses with weekend cocktails and we are raising our toast to you too lovelies! Wether you made it through spring break with a visit from the in-laws, survived the horrible weather that struck a good deal of the country, or just endured one too many political conversations, we...

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a beautiful culinary experience thrown by Momtrends and Wonderful Pistachio. While there, we not only got to mix and mingle with some fabulous fellow influencers, but we were treated to a family style dinner, the courses which we prepared ourselves under the direction of professional chefs.

Tomato and Goat Cheese Tarts, a Delightful Ladies Lunch

Nothing feels better after a few weeks of late nights of frozen foods and take-out, then going to the grocery store to stock up and get my hands dirty in the kitchen. So that's just what I did a few weeks ago when I had a friend who was up for making the 30 mile trek to my house to hang out. Trust me, in the DC area coming from Virginia to Annapolis is like crossing the Oregon Trail in a covered wagon!
