Fave Five: Feeding a Crowd

It’s been too long since my last “Fave Five” post but with Labor Day weekend approaching, I wanted to share a few of my best crowd-pleasing recipes. 

If your long weekend plans include entertaining company and feeding a crowd – I hope you find some inspiration with these yummy eats…starting with breakfast:

| Breakfast: Chocolate Chip & Pistachio Pancakes |


| Lunch: Blueberry & Prosciutto Salad


| App: Whiskey Bacon Jam

| Dinner: Dirty Bird Nachos

| Dessert: Chocolate Pie

Fave Five: Seasonal Snacking

We’re practically 10 days away from Christmas and I’m over here just hoping I can Amazon Prime my way through the 25th. 

I’m assuming some of you may be in the same boat. So for the third installment of Fave Five, I’m recapping some of my best holiday nibbles (& cocktail) to accompany your online shopping binge. And when the delivery man fails you – hopefully he won’t…but if he does – you can gift homemade treats and spread some Christmas calories cheer.  

| Winter White Martini

| Sissy’s Sausage Balls

| Christmas Crostinis

| Caramel Bacon Popcorn

| Chocolate-dipped Fortune Cookies

Fave Five: Apps

For this month’s installment of “Five Faves,” I’m throwing it back to a few of my best crowd-pleasing recipes.

Cooking for a group can be stress inducing or super fun if you enjoy entertaining. Either way, I think it’s best to have a several go-tos up your sleeve, ready to whip up with little effort. These recipes have been tried and tested on multiple occasions and always get rave reviews. Hope they can help set the menu for your next gathering!


| Pear + Prosciutto Crostinis |


| Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates |


| Caramel Bacon Popcorn |


| Chili Spiced Mango Wings |


| Bailey’s-infused Mousse |

Fave Five: Cocktails

#TBT* cocktail edition.

It is officially hot here in Atlanta. Like, stiffling-I-cannot-breath-when-I-get-in-my-car-and-my-AC-is-not-cooling-fast-enough hot. The crazy thing is, it’s only going to get hotter. Woof.

So to help cope with the rising temps, I like to stay hydrated with a little help from friends – Bombay, Casamigos, and Ketel. 😉 Today, I’m throwing it back to 5 of my favorite cocktail posts that will keep you cool and tipsy happy.


| Big Wooly Mammoth |


| Cucumber + Jalapeno Margarita |


| Three Shonda-Thursday Inspired Drinks |


| Peach Mint Julep |


| Old Fashion |

Cheers to being sweaty & tipsy, Atlanta.
