Red, White + Blueberries… 4th of July Treats

  This morning I had some time to do a little 4th of July baking.  I decided to do red, white and blue inspired fruit tarts for this 4th of July.  The fresh fruits helps to balance out the healthy and the not so healthy but delicious custard.   Confession the pastry is not made from scratch but I did bake it lol This light and yummy dessert is great for 4th of July dessert bars or for guests at dinner or BBQ’s. Ingredients Madagascar Vanilla Custard (Fosters Strand Location Sells It) so yummy! Strawberries Cherries Blueberries   Happy Baking! with love, xo

4th of July Orange + Lemon Infused Water

    Happy 4th of July!!! Today is one of my favorite holidays!  Orange + Lemon infused water is a refreshing drink to serve your guests at your 4th of July BBQ, Brunch or Dinner party.  It’s a great way to use up your lemons and oranges.  The citrus flavor is delicious! Bonus- It’s 100% healthy and not only are you keeping yourself hydrated with water (a must during summer days) you are getting the added benefit of a Vitamin C boost to keep you energized for a day of fun in the sun and a spectacular show of fireworks. Ingredients 2 slices of oranges cut into pieces 2 slices of lemon spritz a little orange into water spritz a little lemon into water let it chill for an hour or so and then enjoy! p.s- the longer the oranges and lemons infuse into the water the strong the taste 🙂   When you have drank the last drop of your orange and lemon infused water, please don’t let the fruit pieces go to waste. …

Eco Chic Table Decor Every now and then it is nice to incorporate fresh flowers into your brunches, lunches, and dinner parties.  In the picture above are some fresh coral pink and white roses perfect trending summer colors!  The great thing about choosing roses is that later the roses can be repurposed to make potpourri and/or rosewater. 2. Sunday Brunch Sangria This was my first time making Sangria and thankfully it turned out pretty good.
