How fun is taco Tuesday?!

I’m sure everyone has a go to meal when you have a crowd to feed. Mine is Tacos. So easy right? And during the summer, the fruits and veggies are so fresh. It’s so colorful and delicious!

Truth me told, I use the store bought box. I pick up a pound or two of fresh ground meat to brown up and set bowls of fresh toppings:

sour cream

cheese

pico de gallo

guacamole

Oh and of course….cocktails.

Abby served Spicy Pineapple Grapefruit Palomas and they were out of this world.

We had leftover pineapple juice from Abby’s cocktail so we turned that into a pitcher of fruity mocktails for the boys. It was the juice combined with all the citrus we could find in the fridge. Yum! They loved being part of the action.

I had leftover herbs so I put them into a small jar of water and picked flowers from the garden to add a little fun to the table.

Now load up corn or flour tacos and ENJOY! Taco Tuesday Rules.

Chef Luke Makes Candy Sushi

Chef Luke is BACK! He took a short break from his cooking show because he’s been extremely booked; camp, dates with mom, swim lessons, and all the attention throughout “The Summer of Luke” have been very exhausting. Luckily, his partner in crime, Chef Gavin, returned home from sleep away camp last week, and they insisted on cooking together.

They’ve done it again with this super fun recipe for Candy Sushi, which we adapted from Kraft. Watch the full video to see how it’s done!

Enjoy!

Ice Cream Parlor Party

In honor of National Ice Cream Day this Sunday, July 16th, we decided to host our own Ice Cream Parlor Party. And what better spot to enjoy ice cream than under an umbrella by a pool in The Hamptons?! From sundaes to sprinkles, we ate it ALL.

First, we picked up our favorite ice cream flavors and set up our toppings bar. Seri has a new rolling cooler which was brilliant for us to fill with ice and store our ice cream in!

Our ice cream filled afternoon went something like this….

Fan favorite here at Little Miss Party is the sugar cone. Have you ever really explored the Ice Cream section in your grocery store?  I often find the most fabulous selection of cones (sugar, waffle, bowls!) at mine so I picked up an assortment for our guests to choose their favorites.

Don’t forget the cherry on top!

You know what else Ice Cream works well with? SODA! How about an ice cream soda float? Ok! Yes please!

So what do we say for National Ice Cream Day? Bring it on and Hip Hip Hooray!

Taking a Blizzard Break with Dairy Queen

If there’s ever a time to slow down and take a break at work, it’s during the summer. When the sun is blazing and it’s hot outside, sometimes you just gotta give yourself a well deserved break.

That “taking a break” frame of mind was the inspiration for how we styled a spectacular event for Dairy Queen last week on the roof of Rare Bar and Grill.

With soaring views in the heart of the city, we turned this incredible space into the ultimate Summer Blizzard Bar where guests were invited to sample the new DQ Blizzard flavors, play games that we set up and take photos in front of the “Flip Yeah” station that we worked with Confetti System to create.

One of my favorite parts of this set up was the spoon art that we crafted on the face of the bar. Natalie and our friend Lindsey spent hours sticking these spoons onto the bar for a gorgeous backdrop.

There was a great group of kids who showed up to the event and not only got to enjoy the delicious DQ Soft Serve but got to try out the serving machine themselves!

We thought it would be fun to serve ice cold milk in cups that were rimmed with sprinkles. Needless to say these were a hit with the kiddos.

At the Flip Yeah photo station, our friends at Confetti System made an upside down Blizzard prop for our guests to pose with. Did you know that Blizzards can be flipped upside down and nothing spills out? I did not have a great appreciation for this fun fact till working with the DQ Team on this party!

The guys over at Manhattan Neon custom made a neon “Blizzard Bar” sign for us to display so guests knew exactly where to go for frozen treats.

We also included a couple of our favorite Double Cherry Pool and Watermelon pool floats from Big Mouth as props for our photo booth.

We sure did enjoy our #BlizzardBreak with Dairy Queen at this event. Happy Summer friends, stay cool!

Chef Luke makes hummus & pita chips

As the school year is winding down, after school activities are also coming to an end. So the boys have had a lot of free time lately. Since Tuesdays opened up for Gavin he’s been asking to cook with Luke!

Luke loves hummus and we’ve been talking about making it so there you have it. We found the easiest recipe on our friend’s site, Weelicious. We added baked pita chips into the mix so the boys would have something good to dip when the hummus was ready!

The best part of this recipe? It’s healthy. Ugh. I love when that happens!

We set out a plate of veggies for the boys to eat while they were cooking (because they are always hungry) and they also dipped these into their hummus.

Want to see how it all went down? Watch it here.
