I was inspired to make this Blueberry Pastry recipe after having what I lovingly nicknamed “blueberry delights” at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach. When I lived in LA, my friend Christian managed the hotel and my friend Greg was the chef. I loved frequenting their brunch, mainly for these little blueberry pastry treats!
They may just be Blueberry Pastries to everyone else, but to me they will always be Blueberry Delights! 🙂
I’ve already made these twice when hosting friends and family, once for brunch and once as appetizer, and each time they were a huge hit! Best part is, they’re so simple and only require 4 ingredients and 25 minutes to make!
Ham hash is made in just 30 minutes for an easy breakfast anytime! With just a few different ingredients, you can transform this recipe three ways, into an Italian, Mexican or Greek hash.
Ham hash is something my Dad used to make me for breakfast growing up. Diced potatoes, onions and ham, with a little cheese sprinkled on top at the end. It was simple and my absolute favorite as a kid! As an adult, I partnered up with my friends at Smithfield, to kick up my ham hash a bit, adding a few different ingredients to make three different varieties.
First up is the Italian Ham Hash which features basil pesto, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. It’s like taking your favorite pasta dish and making it into your new favorite breakfast potato dish!
Next up is the Mexican Ham Hash featuring jalapenos, a dash of chili powder, pepper jack cheese and fresh avocado. This one is a personal favorite as I love the Mexican flavors and I can never say no to a breakfast topped with avocado!
Finally, the Greek Ham Hash featuring mushrooms, oregano, sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese. This dish will make you feel like you’re having breakfast in the Mediterranean! The creamy feta on top is my favorite addition to this easy ham hash recipe!

A toasted baguette is topped with goat cheese, balsamic roasted beets, fresh basil & balsamic reduction in this vegetarian Beet Bruschetta recipe that’s perfect for Spring!
Easter is just a couple of weeks away and as I thought about new recipes for the holiday, all I kept thinking about was making a spring version of my very popular Butternut Squash Bruschetta Recipe!
That bruschetta appetizer is a HUGE HIT around the fall holidays, so I knew I had to make a spring version for Easer.
I decided to roast up beets instead of butternut squash, and toss in fresh basil instead of sage. Instead of ricotta, I used goat cheese (because I love the way it pairs with beets!) but I kept the most important piece of the bruschetta in tact, the almighty balsamic reduction drizzle at the end that adds a touch of sweetness and a beautiful final presentation!
This delicious twist on a gin mule combines tart grapefruit juice with sweet sparkling wine for a refreshing cocktail that’s also so easy to make!
You know when you meet someone and you instantly want to be best friends with that person?! That’s exactly how I felt when I met my friend Laura!
She’s a fellow blogger at Distillerista.com and the owner of the only craft destination distillery in California, You & Yours Distilling Co. in downtown San Diego. Needless to say, she’s a boozy boss lady, which I love! In addition to dominating in the distillery world, she’s also the sweetest person ever and so much fun!
