South of the Border Casserole

Yesterday I told you about the latest cookbook in my collection, Domestic Chic and today I'm sharing with you one of the great recipes I found.  I love the book.  It doesn't just give you fabulous recipes, but it gives you ideas to put whole menus together to help you throw the perfect dinner party.  

I chose South of the Border Casserole from the Fiesta! Fiesta! Menu Plan in the book.  The author, Kristine, also gives a few ideas on how to decorate which makes it even more fun.  If you missed yesterday's post, you can read all about the cookbook HERE.

Domestic Chic Cookbook Review

Today I'm happy to share with you a great cookbook that I received a few weeks ago called Domestic Chic by Kristin Sollenne.   I love reading cookbooks and was pretty excited to receive this one because Kristin's cookbook is set up as pre-planned menus with over 100 recipes to help plan your next family get-together or holiday celebration. I love to plan celebrations and this cookbook makes it really easy!

Broccoli and an Easy Recipe

I'm sharing with you today a few more photos of our garden and a very easy recipe for enjoying broccoli.  Broccoli doesn't need a fancy cheese sauce to make it delicious.  We enjoyed our very first home-grown broccoli for dinner last night and it was delicious just steamed with a little butter.   


Our very first broccoli from the garden for dinner tonight!

Pea Pesto Crostini and a Graduation Party

We finally were able to celebrate my son's high school graduation with a graduation party this weekend. We've had a very busy summer and my husband was away training the cadets for the past 6 weeks.  The only time we had to have Michael's graduation was this past weekend...three days before he leaves for college.  We had a great time and I have to share with you this recipe for Pea Pesto Crostini that my friend, Jani, made for the party.

Friday Favorites #22

I hope you are enjoying these Friday Favorites posts.  Another fun color combination that I love is blue and brown.  I actually have this color combination in our house already.  Our living room furniture is brown leather and I have accent pillows with blue and brown.  The curtains in our living room and dining room are also brown. And so are the area rugs in both rooms.  These favorites this week just scream "Fall" and I'm so ready for to say goodbye to the hot weather of summer.
