Friday Favorites from Preppy Kitchen, Heather Cristo, A Dish of Daily Life and More

Good morning! A happy Spring day to you. It has been gorgeous here the last few days, mild temperatures, slight breeze, warm sunny days and bright flowers blooming everywhere. 

The weekend is going to be stormy though so I will have to keep myself occupied inside.

I am thinking of starting off the weekend with a Strawberry Serrano Lime Tequila Champagne Cocktail from the beautiful Heather Cristo.

The Preppy Kitchen

If you are looking for something special to make for Mother's Day, John at The Preppy Kitchen made these gorgeous Rose Cupcakes and he even included a video of how to create the roses. He makes it look so easy I think I am going to try it.

I love sandwiches and this Ham Brie and Apple Panini from A Dish of Daily Life looks delicious. 

Next to sandwiches I could east pasta everyday, if you do as well here are a few fast and east recipes you might like  22 Spring Pastas on the Table in 30 Minutes or Less.

Although many are just back from Spring break I know that summer vacation is just around the corner.  If Italy is on your list make sure to check out this post by Sandy of You Maybe Wandering of her fabulous 21 day trip to Italy each place is more beautiful that the next!

This article, Why You Should Make Time for Self Reflection is an interesting read.

Did you read any interesting books, see any good movies or try any new recipes? If so please share because I love hearing about new things.

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Those cupcakes look too pretty to eat. I am trying not to bake sweets, but when we have guests, I get to splurge. Cupcakes are always a good idea, especially when they are works of art.
    If you want to bask in an Italian mood, "The Charterhouse of Parma" by Stendhal is surprisingly funny for an old book.

  2. Great links, Elizabeth! Those preppy cupcakes look right up my alley. Have a great weekend.

  3. Happy weekend, Elizabeth!! The cupcakes and cocktails look SO good! Thank you so much for the shout out...I need to get to work sharing my may take a while! Hugs to you, my dear!!
