by Chrissy

 

Lauren Bach_LYK3

I am proud to announce that:

1. Lauren’s bachelorette weekend in Cabo, Mexico was AMAZING.

2. We managed to sufficiently embarrass the Bride-to-Be, on every occasion, while making her wear her veil, light up ring, huge lei, party hats, sashes, and maybe a few other things…

3. We all made it back to the States in one piece. Phew.

NY Cheesecake w Cherry Topping_LYK4

Before this, I hadn’t really ventured into the cheesecake realm, but after I pulled this little stunt for a New York themed party, I think I’ll be dabbling with various homemade cheesecake recipes, in the near future.

They are just delectable morsels of goodness and really quite simple to make.

An NY cheesecake is typically served plain, or with a berry topping, so I went ahead and dressed it up a bit.

For this shower, the girls of the LYK stepped into the roles of Bride-to-be and Maid of Honor. It was nice to have someone else do all the cooking, and most of the baking.

Kale Pesto Braided Bread

by Chrissy

This past weekend, we had a green-themed party in honor of our friend’s long-awaited green card. Hey, any excuse for a party, right?

When we gather for celebrations, we don’t mess around when it comes to the food spread. We know how to potluck. We go gourmet, homemade, unique, delicious, and…bacon. Often times we find a reason for bacon to be present and accounted for.

My family has always loved carrot cake, but it’s not often that we grew up celebrating with it. Somehow chocolate cake trumped all others, but I suppose that just made carrot cake even more special when we … Read more...
