Cucumber Cup Appetizers

I found this delicious looking/sounding recipe for stuffed cucumber cups on Lemons and Anchovies – another fun food blog.  I love cucumbers, caramelized onions, and bacon so these are right up my alley!  And even better, they make an adorable presentation as the cucumbers are hollowed out into cups to be served as an appetizer.  […]

Pick-Your-Potato Bar

This Spud Bar makes me so happy – 1) I never met a potato I didn’t love, and 2) the reference to the 1950’s “sputnik” is just so genius and creative!  Designed by Botanica Florals, this potato bar includes everything: mashed potatoes, french fries, tater tots, potato wedges, potato skins, baked potatoes, and of course all […]
