Mini Grilled Cheese Cakes Recipe

If you read this blog regularly, you'll know that I have a slight obsession with grilled cheese sandwiches. I even threw myself a grilled cheese themed birthday party. It was pretty awesome, if I do say so myself. I had a grilling station, different kinds of bread, a bunch of add-ins and, of course, a chip bar. Turns out that a lot of my friends hadn't made grilled cheese before!

Banh Mi Fries Recipe

Em and Gina are hosting a potluck! There are a bunch of lovely people joining in and tons of delicious food being made. Check it out here and here! Are you guys a fan of potlucks?

There'll inevitably be too many desserts (which is always a good thing) and usually, at least in the case of the potlucks that I've been to, the oven will be overstuffed with people trying to warm their dishes at the last minute. The solution? Bring something that doesn't need to be warmed up in the oven. Of course, you could go with a lovely cold pasta salad or a fancy deviled egg, but if you're anything like me, you'll bring over all the fixings for banh mi fries.

Raspberry Mint Julep Recipe

Do you guys like to keep your various groups of friends separate or do you let them mingle? Generally, I like to lump all of my friends together at dinners and parties – I figure all my friends like me, so they already have one thing in common. But, just this past weekend, two very dear friends of mine met for the first time. What made it even more interesting is that we invited them both to stay the weekend. Luckily they got along quite well and there were no fisticuffs.

Do you think the week starts or ends on Sunday? I’ve always considered Sunday the beginning of the week, but a lot of people (including Mike) argue that it’s the end of the week. I guess there’s something to...

Easy Pistachio Cherry Tart Recipe and a Giveaway!

I absolutely LOVE cherries. Artificial cherry flavour has a bad reputation, but it’s my absolute favourite fake flavour (lollipops, jello, popsicles). I love fresh cherries even more than fake ones and nothing says summer to me more than...
