We recently hosted a Masquerade Dinner Party at our home. It was filled with good food, fabulous masks and mostly, wonderful company. Check out some pictures from our night and our homemade invite above. DIY Dinner Party!
Today is a special day and has been for many years. It was the day that our brother was born and graced the world with his outgoing, funny and loving personality! We are very lucky to have an older brother like Bryce.
What would we do without someone taking us out of our crib and hiding us in the hamper when we were supposed to be taking a nap?
….Or playing snake in the grass and ends up being the wounded snake.
What about the time when you tied a zip tie around one of our fingers and it started to turn blue at the checkout in Costco? …..
….And the time when we tried to make mom a cake and turned the whipping cream into butter?
How about the time when we swam across the ocean to a deserted island in Costa Rica…little did we know there were crocodiles in the water – you had my back though!…
The list goes on and on and on. But this list is something that we will always remember and we love about our brother. He taught us to be tough, smart women who could discuss the game of baseball with any professional announcer, player or coach. The amount of baseball games we have been to would probably set a world record!
Bryce is a great mentor, friend and coach to us. Oh and did I mention a great cook, host and dancer. Dance Floor Magic is what we like to call him. WHOOP WHOOP.
Happy Birthday!! We are so happy to be your younger, twins sisters anyone can ask for! Cheers to you and hope you have a fabulous day! We love you!
Everybody ready for some football? You will be after reading this…or not because you will be too consumed in the rich, creamy flavor of this fan-favorite appetizer that will clear the sidelines and take them straight to your kitchen. Here is the play-by-play game plan:
2 – 8 ounce cream cheese
¼ cup sour cream
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 – 2 ½ ounce packed smoked sliced beef, chopped*
2 Tablespoons green onions, chopped
1 teaspoon Horseradish
2-3 Tablespoon parsley, chopped
*You can find this in the pre-packaged deli section.
Combine cream cheese and sour cream in a bowl. Mix well until combined. Stir in Parmesan cheese, beef, onion and horseradish. Once mixed, shape the cheese into balls. Depending on your crowd you can make one big one or 2 small ones. Roll in Italian breadcrumbs. Wrap the balls in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple hours. For best results, refrigerate overnight.
When you are ready to serve, remove and place on a platter filled with your favorite crackers. It doesn’t matter who wins at this point…you are sure to score a touchdown with your guests with this recipe!
Let’s go for the t.w.o. point conversion….
One of the most popular hostess gifts is a bottle of wine. And the most popular way to bring the bottle is unwrapped, no gift bag. The main reason for not having a bag is that you forgot to purchase the bag or you think to yourself, “They will just throw it in the trash anyways!” Well, T.W.O. has a solution for you….Just “throw in the towel” and you will have yourself an original hostess gift! Plus, the host can use the towel again! Not just throw it away.
What you will need:
-Decorative kitchen towel, brand new
*T.W.O. has featured one of their favorite Old Vine Zins by Brazin.
Take your kitchen towel and lay it flat on a table. Place your wine bottle in the center of the towel. Gather the ends of the towel and bring up, towards the center of the wine bottle so that it is entirely covered. If your towel is on the larger side, you might need to twist it when wrapping the wine bottle so the ends are not flopping over. Secure the towel in place by tying the raffia around the neck of the wine bottle in a knot. Finish with a bow. You could also add a little name tag (tying it when making the knot) to make it more personable. Now you are all set for the party!
