Comments Off on The First Days of Summer Part 2: Must-Have Cool Recipes for 4th of July!

We had the BEST dinner with the family the other night, and we really enjoyed a cool dinner on the patio. The key to keeping everyone comfy, but the food yummy…was serving dishes that were pretty “chill”. These are great dishes for a 4th of July celebration outdoors! We started off with my soon-to-be-sister in law’s Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella stacks. These cute little treats were delicious, and they fit right in with our red and white color scheme. They...

Comments Off on “Sea” Dad’s Eyes Light Up With Lobster and Bacon Mac & Cheese!

A few years ago, I went in search of a knock-your-socks-off Mac and Cheese recipe. I searched high and low, had many trial and errors…and ended up with this very rich “once in a blue moon” kind of dish. It is delicious, but it is decadent. It’s a definite hit with anyone who tries it…but a little extra yoga/gym time may be in order afterward! I used to make this about once a year for visiting friends back when I lived in Los Angeles, because they...

Comments Off on We’re Cooking Up Cioppino: Dad’s Favorite!

With ‘Dad’s Day’ approaching, this could be a meal to really “wow” your favorite guy, with something a little different. There is the saying, “When the cats away, the mice will play…” well around here at 3P…we say “When Mom’s away…we’ll make the recipes that Dad loves and Mom doesn’t eat!” When there’s only two of the three 3P Team Members to “hold down the fort”…I like to make favorite dishes for Dad. This dish contains...

Macarons are “all the rage” these days…you see them in bakery store windows, magazines, and all throughout Pinterest and the Blog-o-sphere.

Comments Off on One More Sleep Until Mother’s Day…Mimosas, Brunch, and More!

We’re gearing up for an awesome Mother’s Day with nearly our whole clan! All of the Moms will be celebrating with Mimosas, an incredible brunch spread, cards, gifts, and of course the fun that comes along with such a large family gathering. We can’t wait. Before we get started, we wanted to share a quick idea for Mother’s Day Mimosas, and also share what we’re bringing to the table for brunch tomorrow! We’re loving that the weather in Vegas...

I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t LOVE Italian food, and the 3P team is no different! We’re spoiled though, because my Aunt Nancy and Aunt Rena are Italian and make some of the BEST spaghetti sauce ever, and so does my Mom! Lots of veggies, all fresh, and very simple to make. A little while ago when Nancy came to visit, everyone requested that she please make some of her sauce…so we turned it into an Italian night at home. We ran with our theme, had a “delizioso” meal...

We had the most beautiful Easter brunch with our family…everybody brought a dish or two and I think everyone left with loosened belts! SO many tasty Easter treats from eggs to salads to cakes. Speaking of eggs and cake…or pie…my Aunt Shari brought over her delicious Quiche Lorraine and it was so good we even had it for breakfast again the day after Easter! This savory quiche is a snap to make, and to save even more time it can be made with pre-made pie crusts....
