Quick & Easy Romesco Sauce Recipe

Quick & Easy Romesco Sauce Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

I was asked by Alexia Smart Classics Crinkle Cut Fries to come up with a quick and easy recipe that would work great as part of a family-friendly meal. One of my New Year's resolutions is to try my hand at sauces.

I cook a lot of fresh foods at home, but I feel like I can create more flavor by exploring beautiful sauces à la Julia Child (well, a girl can dream, can't she?). So here's my first one of the year -- my romesco sauce recipe!

Homemade lip balm DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Shauna Krantz, our new contributor, and the brains behind the beautiful Ella and Annie Magazine, is here with a homemade lip balm DIY!

There is just something soothing about all natural lip balm. I love it, my kids love it, and it makes the perfect gift or party favor! Made with beeswax, your favorite extract or essential oil, and coconut oil, it's super simple to do. You can even tint with beet root powder or by melting in a piece of your favorite lipstick. I prefer the sheer gloss!

Trend: Decorated Stacked Cookies

by Jillian Leslie on

Stacked decorated cookies are a new dessert trend we're seeing on CatchMyParty.com

When I see a new trend showing up on our site, especially one that's so beautiful, I have to share it right away. So here's my first trend spotting for 2015. Introducing... decorated stacked cookies. Aren't they gorgeous?!

Most of the ones we're seeing are simple sugar cookies or shortbread cookies, and sandwiched between them is pretty frosting. Plus there seems to be a definite flower theme, lots of piped rosettes and added gumpaste flowers. And don't forget the sparkle. To really make these decorated stacked cookies stand out, we're seeing glittered detail on the edges of the cookies, or completely covering the cookies.
