I’m excited to begin sharing my passion for entertaining. I love everything from hosting small intimate dinner parties at home to late afternoon happy hour on the back patio to preparing simple, pretty and delicious little recipes. You don’t need to be a professional to host a sweet get together for your BFFs or your couple friends. With easy decor ideas, step by step recipes and beautiful images that will inspire your own creativity you will be on your way to not only becoming the ultimate hostess but loving every second of it.


Today I’m thrilled to introduce you to a very dear friend and my favorite chef, Chef Blake. She attended the prestigious French Culinary Institute in New York and spent many years cooking in some of the best fine dining restaurants in the city. Her training, refined palette and classic French technique have led her to build a successful private chef business cooking for some of the most elite clients.

Here is one of Chef Blake‘s favorite Springtime libation, perfect to get your weekend started.
