{RECIPE} Tasty and Refreshing Granita for Summer

by Jillian Leslie on

It's been hot hot hot here in Palo Alto, so I wanted to come up with a recipe that would be cool and delicious. That's why I excitedly created these strawberry and orange granitas.

For those of you who don't know, granita is an Italian dessert that's a cross between a snow cone and sorbet. It's sweet and icy, simple to make, and the key to getting the texture just right is to mix it every twenty minutes with a whisk while it's freezing in the freezer. Plus, I added a little champagne to each flavor to give them both a nice zing.

{DIY} Monogrammed Mugs

by Jillian Leslie on

I found these monogrammed mugs on Design Mom and had to share. If you are looking for a cheap and easy favor idea, head to goodwill, find some mismatched mugs, and start monogramming or designing.

All you need to make these are: a pair of scissors, a pen, tape, graphite transfer paper, a Black Pebeo Porcelaine Pen in Fine Point available at Amazon or Michael's, and a print out of your guests' initials (or any other design you want to copy).
