The milestone of a 50th birthday should ALWAYS be celebrated. A loving daughter, with help from dad, made all of the arrangements for us to surprise her mom with a simple party for family and friends. We enjoyed the opportunity to work with this family and they got excited when we told them of our plans to make it all fresh and inviting. The guests raved about the food and it was almost all gone by the end of the day (thankfully we were able to fix a goodie box for the guest of honor to take home to continue the party!)


We have always been fascinated by the simple life of the Amish. Their lives are simple, but their food is out of this world. On one of our trips to Amish Country in Pennsylvania, we were introduced to “whoopie pies.” After some perfecting them down to a nice serving size (the ones up north are HUGE), we decided to try them out for this 50th birthday party. BAM! Another huge success. Once again, we looked for and found a recipe that is “real food for real people!”


Summertime kind of demands ice cream popsicles and watermelons. What if we combined both…well, parts of both. We had fun taking the popsicle sticks to create these watermelon pops. They were refreshing and the brilliant red really brightened up the table for all of the guests. Cool, refreshing and easy to eat!
