Mandy’s Meals & More


With the recent birth of our daughter Dylan, my husband and I decided to send out an announcement/holiday card combined rather than both. Though I do appreciate getting a letter in the mail, I thought it would be pretty wasteful to do anything separate.
With our beautiful pictures from Aunti Debi (Simply Beautiful Eating) in hand, we began our search on Minted.
Minted has literally followed every step of my adult life, every milestone I’ve achieved, party I have thrown and holiday that has passed minted has celebrated with my family. I really adore what they are about, that artists around the country are contributing and sharing their work.


Typically I am not super “girly” but this one just seemed to fit the bill and match Dylan’s adorable floral crown which you may have seen here. It was so beyond perfect I couldn’t believe it!


If you haven’t ordered your holiday cards yet check out the amazing selection here.

Wishing you and your families an amazing thanksgiving next week and upcoming holiday season!

Celebrating the bride to be? Looking for a healthy nibble to serve the ladies with the Shower Party in a Box that you just purchased?

Check out these ridiculously easy and surprisingly healthy appetizers. I would suggest dipping these puppies into a greek dressing of sorts.


Greek Feta Skewers
Olives (pitted preferably)
Tomato (I used a pretty firm tomato so that it stands up to the skewer)
Cucumber (I bought mini cucs)

Simply pile them high on a pretty skewer and call it a day! Your guests will be super impressed and relieved that they aren’t eating another typical bridal shower pastry.


Little Miss Party in a Box includes everything you need to entertain your friends with beautiful tableware and decor. All you need to add is the flowers, food and cocktails. Shop the Box and follow along with Mandy’s Meals & More for weekly recipes and food styling ideas!

Ok, so you’re throwing a birthday brunch and you need something quick, easy and super impressive for the guests.
This crispy, salty and creamy delight is so easy to make you’ll have extra time to sip on your mimosa and put your feet up before the madness begins.
You know what would pair perfectly with these bites? Little Miss Party in a Box!
Everything you could possibly need in a box, say whaaaa?!



Here is how I made these cucumber nibbles:

Mini English Cucumbers
Philadelphia Whipped Chive Cream Cheese
Smoked Salmon

Simply cut the cucumber into bite size rounds, pipe cream cheese onto each cucumber piece.
Roll up a small strip of smoked salmon and top with a sprig of dill

Easy peasy and delish!



*The white porcelain appetizer spoons are Mandy’s. She bought these at Crate and Barrel for $0.95 a pop. Pick up a dozen for an unexpected look when serving these cucumber rounds OR you can put them on our bamboo spoons included in the box…

A Backyard Baby Shower


This summer I had the pleasure of throwing my sister a baby shower. I made sure that this baby shower…was different form all the other baby showers I’ve ever been to in the past…


For starters, I asked my Aunt Debi if we could co-host the shower in her backyard. She’s got a perfectly flat piece of lawn and I have always dreamed of throwing a party back there with a big white tent…



When she agreed, I got to work on the game plan. I wanted this shower to be laid back, have no games and be on an evening during the work week so we weren’t taking anyone away from their weekends.


I chose a Thursday evening for the party and planned a family style menu with a rustic feel. The guests were invited to dine outside, under the stars with delicious food and cocktails.



The other detail I threw into the mix was a play on my sister’s married last name. Her husband is a Dick. Jason Dick. So she was giving birth to…baby Dick. There was no shortage of laughs here starting with the gorgeous invites that I found on Minted and baby Dick references made throughout the night.




We ended the night on a sweet note, as we always do, serving mini cupcakes and donuts in an ombre of pinks.


The night went exactly as planned. Most importantly, Mandy was over the moon with joy to celebrate the birth of her first babe with dear friends and family.

We owe a great big thank you to all of those incredible vendors who helped to pull this all together for us…

As the weather cools down, I can’t help but to crave warm comforting soup. If you’re looking for a super easy and delicious staple that you will never forget, check out my friend elyse’s (elyse leannacatering) French onion soup recipe. There’s something about that ooey gooey cheese that gets me every time.
Perfect for a Sunday night in cozying up with the cat watching Netflix. Or your family haaa they will love you for it!



Elyse’s French Onion Soup

Serves 4
1 small baguette
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. butter
1 large, Vidalia onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 sprigs of thyme, leaves removed and roughly chopped

1/4 cup sherry wine
4 cups beef stock
Salt and pepper
1 1/3 cups grated gruyere cheese

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice baguette and brush with olive oil. Place in the oven and bake until golden and toasted. Remove from oven and turn oven on to broil.
Heat a large saucepan over medium- high heat. Add butter, once melted add onions, garlic and thyme and sauté until softened. Lower heat and slowly cook until onions start to become golden and caramelized. Pour in sherry and scrape any brown bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Allow the sherry to reduce by 1/2, about 2 minutes then pour in the stock. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and allow to simmer for 10-20 minutes to infuse flavours. Season with salt and pepper.
Divide the soup mixture into 4 oven proof bowls. Top each bowl with a couple of toasted baguette slices and 1/3 cup of grated cheese. Place under the broiler and bake until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Remove from oven and serve, be careful the bowls will be VERY HOT!!!!
