Champagne Wishes

TOAST TO YOU!

Believe it or not, we are less than one week away from ringing in the New Year! Whether you are hosting a NYE party or keeping it casual this year, a bottle of bubbly is always a fabulous idea! Here are a few FUN & EASY Champagne Cocktail Ideas to add some pizazz to your toast this year…

  • Sugar Rim your champagne flutes by first adding a few drops of lime juice in a small bowl. On a separate plate, pour 1/4 cup of sugar. Dip the top of your champagne flute, PRIOR TO POURING YOUR BUBBLY, in the lime juice and gently dip into sugar. Your sweet rim is now ready!
  • Get Juicy by adding a light mixer to your champagne cocktail! Here are a few mixers that are sure to add FUN & FLAVOR to your glass…Cranberry Juice, Pomegranate Juice, Grapefruit Juice, Peach Nectar and Pear Nectar!
  • Garnish that glass! Finish off your bubbly but adding fresh Raspberries, Strawberries and Cranberries! I often choose my garnish ahead of time and place a few pieces of fruit on a small plate with a thin layer of water. I place the plate in the freezer for about 2-3 hours. Once frozen, it is super easy to break apart the fruit and garnish your bubbly!

TOAST TO 2018!

“NO SOUP FOR YOU!”

Unless you make it in a BEABA BABYCOOK!

Say “goodbye” to store bought soups and “hello” to healthy, fresh soups! I am beyond excited to share my new FAVORITE kitchen gadget with the world!

The Babycook by BEABAUSA is perfect for blending steaming, chopping, defrosting AND reheating homemade baby food! Hampton is only 9 weeks young which disqualifies him  from enjoying freshly blended vegetables and fruits. However, I was delighted to learn that the Babycook IS NOT JUST FOR BABIES! This kitchen appliance is perfect homemade soups, cookies, smoothies, and more!

There is no better way to celebrate the joys of soup season than by pureeing homemade tomato soup! Fresh ingredients help ensure each meal is packed with vitamins and is preservative free. The Babycook features only one button that can both STEAM and BLEND fresh ingredients! It is so convenient to use and clean up is a breeze! Upon finishing my tomato soup, I glanced over at the kitchen sink and what I saw was nothing short of magnificent. The sink was almost completely empty. Normally I am greeted with a sink full of sticky pots and pans staring back at me, waiting to be washed. Not tonight! I simply tossed the Babycook container in the dishwasher and never looked back. This allows more time for what really matters in the evening, baby cuddles!

I am excited to begin setting a healthy example in our household and later introduce Hampton to freshly blended ingredients by using our new BabyCook! This is the perfect holiday gift for expecting moms and new moms! Find the perfect BabyCook for you here…BabyCook It Up!

The TOMATO SOUP recipe …SOUP FOR YOU!
