4 Summer Drinks To Make At Parties This Summer

Summer parties are upon us and for those of us who love to host dinners, lunches and barbecues, having a bar corner is crucial. Since the weather is hot and one of our goals is to keep our guests refreshed, fruity drinks are the best option.

To make your party more colorful and fruity, try this cooling white sangria. It’ll be so popular you’ll need two punch bowls of this drink! Click here for the recipe.

4) Classic Red Sangria.

In my opinion, a white sangria is nothing without its red other half. This basic red sangria is a year-round drink you can make in no time and that almost everyone loves. You can find the recipe here.

Parties & Happenings, Recipes, Sweet 2 comments on Fun Mini Muffin Skewers

Fun Mini Muffin Skewers

Yesterday, I decided to make a super easy yogurt cake recipe my mom gave me. Halfway through the mix, I thought it would be fun to turn the batter into muffins instead of one big cake. I retrieved my mini muffin molds I had never used and some silicon IKEA molds we had (click here to see what I’m talking about) and divided the whole thing among them. I was so proud of my mini muffins that i just had to send pictures to everyone. And that’s when Jean had the brilliant idea to mix them with fruits and make them into skewers. With a yogurt dip of course 🙂

Like these prawns on skewers we made a few weeks ago, it’ll be much easier to savor the mini muffins and the fruits in parties. It can also be pretty fun to make kids participate in the whole thing if you have them wandering around at home!

What you’ll need (for 18 mini muffins)

Yogurt-Mini-Muffins-on-Skewers-Ingredients-Breadonbutter

– 2 pots of Yogurt (flavor of your choice) – Note: you’ll be using the pots for measurement so don’t throw them away when they’re empty

– 3 pots of flour

– 1 pot of diet vegetable oil (Lesieur is the one I used)

– 2 pots of sugar

– 2 teaspoons of baking powder

– 2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar

– 3 eggs

– Skewers

– Melon, Pineapple and Strawberries – or any fruit of your choice

How to make it is really simple:

1) Preheat the oven at 180 degrees celsius and mix all of the ingredients together

2) Pour them in the muffin molds

3) Place them in the oven for about 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean

4) Let them cool completely then decorate your skewers and serve with yogurt. You can pour honey or any jam you like on the yogurt for additional taste.

An Afternoon Birthday Gathering

Ever since I was born, birthdays are somewhat of a sacred thing we gather for in our family. From a 1 year-old’s to an 80 year-old’s birthday, the ritual is pretty much the same: gather at the person’s house at around 5 o’clock in the afternoon, chat about life around some birthday food, sing happy birthday, chat some more then head home.

A few weeks ago, we gathered at my uncle’s house for my cousin’s birthday (I can’t believe he’s already 15!). So I thought I’d share some pictures of the food to inspire you for your own gatherings. The cake was lovingly decorated by his sweet little sister 🙂
