To Host Is To Live

Okay, yes, that's a tad dramatic but not by much for me. By now I'm sure that you know I love to host gatherings. A lot. But I also love to make things easy. For New Years MK and I had a party! Here are some delicious and quick go to recipes I used but would be perfect for anything you might be hosting this winter season.

First, the delicious winter Sangria. Completely ideal for Brunch or a random Sunday:

  • One bottle of red wine
  • 2 oz Brandy
  • 8 oz Sprite
  • Two tablespoons sugar
  • One orange muddled  

If you are expecting more people double it


Next, appetizers are my favorite. To me, the best parties are ones where there are apps everywhere with lots of variety. This one is simple and elegant. Here is what you do:

  • Get some toothpicks, cut cherry tomatoes in half (so that they stand right), add fresh mozzerella and spinach. Then just sprinkle some balsamic dressing and you're done.  


Have an absolutely splendid 2016!
