Bacon Onion Jam

Last week I had a long, leisurely brunch and I can’t’ stop thinking about the first course: Warm bacon and caramelized onion jam spooned over fresh ricotta cheese, served with toasted bread. It was the perfect combination of savory and sweet and when accompanied with the creamy texture of the cheese we couldn’t help but finish every last bite in record time. I’d like to re-create this at home and this recipe from the New York Times looks like a close match. Enjoy.

Here’s hoping your weekend mornings look something like this. I have nothing planned and I hope to enjoy every single second of my down time. I won't have any more free weekends after this one until June. - - Happy Friday.

Cocktail Carts for the Patio

Cocktail Carts for the Patio

Nothing keeps a BBQ alive and thriving well into the night like a well-stocked supply of great booze.  These carts are built for outdoor entertaining on the patio so you don’t have to duck in and out of the house every time a fresh cocktail is needed.

This spritzer from the Kitchy Kitchen looks mouthwatering.  The recipe is enough to make two pitchers so it’s a perfect party drink...or a delicious way to get tipsy on a Tuesday night.  

1 bottle sauvignon blanc
1 lime sliced
1 blood orange sliced
1 tangerine sliced
12 ounces soda

DIRECTIONS: Combine the wine and fruit in the bottom of each pitcher, and top off with soda.  Add ice and stir!

Baby’s Breath Crown Tutorial for the Babes

When purchasing flowers recently, I bought my 3 year old son a flower crown and he loved it (no shame in his game).  I thought it might be fun to make some of our own in the future, and gift them out to his friends, who mostly happen to be little ladies that I know would adore crowns of their own. This tutorial is so simple and straightforward, and the only supplies needed are some wire and green floral tape, baby’s breath and pliers.
