Prosecco Plum Spritz

I love fruity cocktails, but not when they’re super sweet…Hello, hangover! #nothanks So a cocktail that has a little fruit flavor, an herb edge and is topped with prosecco, is right up my alley! It’s a delightful balance of flavor. I came across this recipe (that I tweaked) when I was trying to think of fun fall sips for me and the mister. Seriously, tell me a prosecco plum spritz doesn’t sound delish? Prosecco Plum Spritz Serving for 2. Ingredients: 2-3 plums Prosecco (I used La Marca) Fresh Thyme Sprigs…

Weeknight Recipes: Salad with Champagne Vinaigrette

Ask and you shall receive! A lot of you asked for more easy weeknight recipes so I’ll be sharing some of my favs with you.

Brie Topped with Figs and Honey

Halloween Shelf Styling

Officially counting down to Halloween…and my available window to find a costume. Get it together, Danai! Ugh. Our new (as of 2017) marble kitchen shelves are constantly getting tweaked for each season. I’ve dressed them up for Spring and Summer and with Fall here, I switched added a few goodies. You don’t have to over do it… Less is always more, in my opinion and that’s how I look at seasonal and holiday styling. Why? Because it’s not overwhelming when it comes time to change. Keep your staple pieces out…
