InstaFaves: A few things


Well, this is awkward.  Have you ever planned a really fabulous dinner party and then had to cancel it because you got WAY TOO BUSY?! No? Oh…

Well.  Me neither.  The Spring Soiree is still on!  It’s just going to take a bit longer for it to come into fruition.  I hope in the meantime you can be patient and satisfy your appetites with lots of grilled things (gorgeous weather, hip hip hooray!).  In the meantime, I thought I would share a few recent favorite discoveries, edited with Instagram (of course).  Enjoy!

Let’s start with this incredible buffalo chicken salad from Jessica at How Sweet Eats — made this over the weekend and it was a huge hit and SO EASY!

Cannot go wrong with root beer — especially when it’s HARD root beer! This is going to be a popular summer beverage for patio parties!

Sharon’s Coconut Sorbet — seriously people. This stuff is creamy like ice cream — but it’s sorbet! No dairy! Lactose Intolerants rejoice! The sad part…it’s been discontinued. We are going to snag as many pints as we can this week. Please, someone tell me there’s another coconut sorbet out there that I can try?! I’m going to develop a recipe for this sorbet asap!

RAAW juice and vegetable blends. The one on the left is cranberry ginger (yum) and the one on the right is raspberry lemongrass (double yum!) They have tons of other flavors, including pineapple cucumber — which, you guessed it, was yum.

I think I’m late to the party on this one — but I just tried Coco Cafe — which is a coconut water espresso, and I must say. I’m in LOVE. Perfect amount of sweetness provided by some evaporated cane juice, and they use organic fair trade coffee!

Who doesn’t love ketchup, right? This ketchup will give you a kick in the pants! Don’t be scared away by the ghost pepper — I was easily able to eat this and I usually like my foods as hot as Frank’s. The flavor is amazing. Recipe to come for this one some time soon!

What are some of YOUR favorites?
