Sweet Summertime

Hey there!

I don't know about you, but I am loving all of the beautiful produce this summer! Lately, I've been inspired to make some wonderful things after a quick visit to the Farmer's Market or my local Whole Foods.  Just this morning I picked up some watermelon radishes and carrots to make into a pickled topping for some Bahn Mi sandwiches!

A few other favorites I've made the last couple weeks include this Fresh Mango Tart, Wild Sockeye Salmon with a Browned Butter Honey Garlic Sauce and Plum Galettes using fresh plums from my neighbors tree! 

What are some of your favorite summertime treats? 

Pottery Barn Summer Preview Event

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of providing hors d'oeuvres for Pottery Barn's Summer Preview event.  It was a great event and so fun to meet new people, while checking out Pottery Barn's new summer selections!  A big thank you to Danya Collyer for getting me involved and extending the invitation!  Williams Sonoma also provided small bites and there was a lovely lemonade bar set up in the back of the store! 

I made four different small bites and wanted to give you all a peek!

~ Caesar Salad in Parmesan Cups 

~ Chocolate Truffles dusted with Sea Salt and Carnation Petals 

~ Strawberry & Basil "Bruschetta" drizzled with Balsamic Reduction 

~ Mini Creme Brulee Ramekins with Candied Carnation Petals 

The caesar salad cups and the truffles were the hit of the day!
