So thanks to Pam for introducing me to this recipe! I don’t remember my life before it! I knew I was in love when I asked for a “to go” plate from the baby shower. By the next day my quart sized “to go” container was G-O-N-E! I think I want Ina Garten to be my best friend. I picture lots of breezy summer afternoons in the Hamptons with us giggling over some sort of fruity drink and exchanging fried... (more...)

Garlic Bread

Hey Jennifer, I could eat garlic bread all day long, so I made this recipe with extra garlic, extra butter all on a big fluffy hunk of bread!

Fresh Homemade Guacamole

Hey Lauren, As you may already know, I have NEVER liked guacamole. I tried it once when I was younger and just wrote it off forever. I was talking to some friends recently that tell me, if you’re ever going to give guacamole a chance, you have to try it fresh and homemade. My friends love avocados and guacamole so much, that I thought I’d attempt the best that had to offer and I actually LOVED it. I... (more...)
