Cute Halloween Treats

by Jillian Leslie on

Cute Halloween Treats! |

I'm always looking for cute Halloween treats to serve my little guests (read: daughter and friends). So here's a roundup of some of the things I've made. I kept them all very simple so anyone (including kids) can make them. I've got cookies, pretzels, and even ice cream sandwiches all dressed up for the holiday!

My New Year's Resolution: More Salads

by Jillian Leslie on

Delicious salad recipes

I told my husband that 2014 is going to be "the year of the salad" for us. We are good at eating vegetables. David and I both love them (Lainey is another story), but we typically eat them cooked... sauteed really, unless they're Brussels sprouts, and then we bake them.

But it's starting to feel boring and a little too predictable. I believe it's time we seriously expanded our vegetable repertoire and for me that's expanding into the world of salads. But how? The problem is that when I think about lettuce and dressing, I'm just not that inspired.

{RECIPE} Delicious Strawberry Apple Crisp

by Jillian Leslie on

This is one of my favorite desserts and I can't believe it has taken me so long to share it on my blog. It's simple to make and perfect for a quick mostly-healthy family dessert!

The best part about it is the added strawberries. They create a level of acid that makes the soft fruit sparkle in your mouth. How's that for a description!

{RECIPE} Caprese Sandwich with Basil Chimichurri Sauce

by Jillian Leslie on

I was excited when GE asked me to write a post about fresh food, because it's something my family and I live on. We shop at our local farmer's market every Sunday. I love coming home and biting into a peach that tastes like flowers.

So when I thought about what kind of fresh food I like to take on a trip (the topic is inspired by the new GE web series, Freshpedition), I thought about my favorite caprese sandwich. Just writing this makes my mouth water.

{RECIPE} Fun for Cocktail Parties... Piña Colada and Mojito Gelées!

by Jillian Leslie on

Last week, Glam Media sent us a "party pack" filled with fun party supplies, and Bacardi sent us two bottles of their new Piña Colada and Mojito Classic Cocktails Light so we could style a "Shiny Chic" cocktail party.

We wanted to try something new, so we decided to make piña colada and mojito gelées! What's a gelée, you might ask? Well, it's fancy way of saying "Jello shot."
