Memorial Day weekend is coming up soon. Are you ready to partiiieeee?!? 
I'm actually not much of a party girl, but I do really enjoy this holiday.
It's the unofficial beginning of the summer season. And I absolutely love everything about summer. The lazy days at the beach, movies at the park, concerts at the Pier, pool parties, and barbecues. And if you are anything like me, ice-cream every day :)
So why don't start the long weekend celebrations next Friday with the first ever National Pinot Grigio Day?!? Cavit Wines is introducing this new wine holiday, and it's the perfect way to kick off the warmer months to come. 
I'm ready to toast with a refreshing glass of Pinot Grigio next to this healthy, laughably easy, and oh-so pretty appetizer. Check it out!

Recipe Ideas to Celebrate Mother's Day

Make your Mom feel extra special with one of these sweet treats

Because she deserves it!

Happy Mother's Day weekend to all the Moms out there. May your day be filled with lots of sunshine and sweetness... and a little bit too many hugs and kisses :)
I'm blessed with two sweet boys who like to show their love with warm cuddles and lots of kisses, and are still small enough to think that their mom is the best ... Hey, maybe she is ;) Haha!
No matter how old you are, you should always find the time to show your mom how much you care. With hugs and kisses, of course! And why not?!? One of these handcrafted unforgettable desserts. 
Apple Roses: rose-shaped dessert made with lots of soft and delicious apple slices, wrapped in sweet and crispy puff pastry

How to Make Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

How about surprising your Mom with these beautiful and delicious chocolate-covered strawberries this Mother's Day?!? 
Because she deserves it!
Here is a great idea for a super quick and extremely easy dessert. It's simply perfect for any occasion. From a romantic dinner next to a glass of champagne, to a fun kids' party. From a last-minutes dinner for guests, to a breakfast in bed for your amazing mom on Mother's Day (... or ANY day really!)
How can you say no to something that looks this good? Elegant and pretty. Yet, easy and oh-so delicious.
All you need are flavorful strawberries and good quality chocolate. As I say all the time, the result can only be as good as the ingredients you're using. And this time, with so few ingredients, quality is even more important.

Easy Made-from-Scratch Garlic Rolls

Say hello to my soft and fragrant buns :)
You know I love (and I mean LOOOVE) bread. It's one of those things I can't possibly stay without... yes, just like chocolate!
I love the soothing pleasure of mixing the dough and watch it rise. I love the comforting taste of this freshly crafted goodness, especially when it's still oven-warm. And I love showing you how to create the perfect garlic rolls in your own kitchen, without too much effort, and with few simple steps. 
And if you are wondering, it is as good as it looks :)
