Easy Day of the Dead Cocktail Party

Easy Day of the Dead Cocktail Party |

Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) starts on November 1st. So we've partnered with Red Diamond Wine to share some fun and easy Day of the Dead cocktail party ideas.

I think Day of the Dead is a beautiful way to remember those who've passed. I love that the celebrations typically include bright colors, luscious foods, and of course decorated skulls, which tie in nicely with Halloween.

Make these quick and easy Halloween pretzel rods to serve your friends and family this Halloween!

I love salty and sweet, so these pretzel rods are right up my alley when it comes to flavor. And did you know, purple is the newest Halloween color? That's right, it's no longer just orange and black. The purple adds a touch of modern style to everything Halloween.

Skinny Meatball Recipe

Skinny Meatball Recipe With Turkey |

With summer entertaining in full swing, how about trying this delicious skinny meatball recipe to serve up easy turkey meatballs to your guests. These are great for kids, too.

Baking them in the oven keeps the turkey meat moist, and you avoid drying them out by over-cooking in a crock pot.

How To Play Hooky With Your Kids |

Last Wednesday, my husband and I picked our daughter up from school on her early dismissal day (1:05pm), and we all headed to Chuck E. Cheese's for a mid-week break. It really felt like playing hooky!

Wednesdays are usually one of our busiest days filled with school, after school activities, work, homework, laundry, etc.
