St. Patrick’s Day Corned Beef & Cabbage Sliders

February 29, 2016

A big plate of corned beef and cabbage with potatoes, carrots and other vegetables is traditionally served on St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a hearty supper for a day in March that could bring “fierce weather”.

You’ll love this new twist on traditional corned beef and cabbage perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day party buffet!

St. Patrick's Day Corned Beef and Cabbage Sliders with Guinness Mustard

This recipe was inspired by the St. Patrick’s Day scene in St. Louis. The Gateway to the West is lucky enough to have two St. Patrick’s Day parades! A big downtown parade and a smaller parade in the Irish part of the city — Dogtown.

St. Patrick's Day Slow Cooked Corned Beef and Cabbage Sliders

Be sure to make plenty of these sliders because they’ll disappear in the blink of an eye like a leprechaun! The quick Guiness mustard is a tasty addition to the corned beef and cabbage sliders. Here’s the recipe:

Easter Place Card Nests

February 24, 2016

 

Easter is just three weeks away! If you’re planning an Easter brunch for family or friends now is the perfect time to collect some pretty ideas for table decorating. We found a clever craft — making place cards out of small nests for your Easter table. If you’re expecting a large crowd for your spring party Easter place card nests are especially helpful.

 

Easter Place Card Nests

 

The baskets are made of raffia, so you will need raffia and a few more items. The nests can be filled with foiled eggs, candies, or candy coated Easter eggs.

For directions on how to make Easter Place Card Nests go to the link below:

Spring Nest Easter Place Cards

For a fabulous Easter brunch buffet add eggciting treats like Happy Easter Petit Fours and Happy Easter Belgian Oreos.  One of these would look bright and cheery in an Easter Place Card Nest! Your guests will adore them!

Happy Easter Petit Fours

Happy Easter Belgian Chocolate  Covered Oreo Tin

Sweet Graduation Gift Ideas for Every Grad

May 23, 2013
Congratulations Graduate Chocolate Dipped Oreos

Hooray! After years of hard work and determination, they finally did it! Help your grad savor his shining moment with delightful desserts that hold the promise of an even sweeter future. Here are five graduation gift ideas that every grad will love.

Congratulations Graduate Chocolate Dipped OreosCongratulations Graduate Chocolate Dipped Oreos

Hats off to the grad! To celebrate the big day, these one-of-a-kind cookies arrive in a box shaped like a real graduation cap. Inside, the mortarboard is filled with Oreos—everyone’s favorite classic cookie—hand-dipped in real chocolate and decorated with diplomas and other grad-themed trimmings. It also comes with a personalized message with special kudos straight from you. Sure, your graduate could share the delicious cookies with the rest of the graduating class … but he won’t want to!

Personalized Gigantic Graduation Fortune CookiePersonalized Gigantic Graduation Fortune Cookie

Graduation day is only the beginning of the lifetime of success that waits ahead. Show your alum how proud you are of today’s accomplishments—and give him your best wishes for a bright tomorrow—with this colossal fortune cookie! This treat is as yummy as it is gigantic: It’s hand-dipped in Belgian dark chocolate and then decorated with a graduation cap and their commencement year. The cookie even has a customizable fortune inside and comes in a cute takeout carton. This grad’s future is looking good!

Congrats Grad! Irresistible Oreo Cookie PieCongrats Grad! Irresistible Oreo Cookie Pie

Show the grad how to take a delicious slice out of life with this mouthwatering pie. Each handcrafted pastry is made with a rich, buttery cookie crust, smooth and sweet white crème, and Oreo pieces sprinkled on top. Then, it’s all wrapped up in a metallic gold gift box and a “Class of 2013” ribbon—perfectly sophisticated and festive packaging for the occasion. One pie can serve up to 12, but don’t be surprised if your grad wants it all to himself. After all, graduation is all about seizing great new opportunities!

Congrats Graduate Caramel Apple With CandiesCongrats Graduate Caramel Apple With Candies

After so many years of bringing bright red apples as a gift for the teacher, it’s time to reward the student with a special apple of his own. Weighing in at over 1 pound, this tart, juicy orchard-fresh Granny Smith is dipped in creamy caramel, sprinkled with rainbow candy and drizzled with white confection. We top off the treat with some pretty ribbon and a heartfelt note. There’s no sweeter way to say congratulations for a job well done!

The Popcorn Factory Congratulations SamplerThe Popcorn Factory Congratulations Sampler

Once that cap has been tossed into the air and that diploma is in hand, it’s time to party! This Popcorn Factory sampler holds an entire graduation bash in a box: It has everything your graduate and his fellow alums need to let loose after school’s out for good, including gourmet cheese, white cheddar and caramel popcorn; mini pecan-caramel Pixies; honey-roasted peanuts; popcorn balls; Jelly Belly jellybeans; sour stars; and milk chocolate-covered pretzels. A well-earned treat for a hardworking grad!

Which gift will you give to your grad to sweeten his commencement day?

New Baby and Baby Shower Games

August 16, 2012
new baby monkey gift

new baby monkey giftWelcome back!

Apparently the number 8 isn’t too lucky for a few of you, so just stick to not walking under any ladders! Of course five of you commenters are in luck and will be receiving a giant fortune cookie! Congratulations to Gary Narberes (August 9, 2012 at 4:16 pm), Karen Koch (August 9, 2012 at 4:21 pm), Melissa (August 9,2012 at 4:51 pm), Elaine C. (August 10, 2012 at 10:49 am), and Suzanne (August 15, 2012 at 10:14 pm)! Send your shipping information to me at amariscal@1800flowers.com  and I’ll send out your fortune cookies!

Is it just me or is the end of summer and beginning of fall “baby season”? I know a few people who are due around this time and nearly half of my family has a fall birthday. I realize there is a statistic about however many thousand people are born every minute, but in my small world, I feel like those minutes all gather around the change of the fall season. Feel free to let me know if it’s the same or different for all of you!

I enjoy seeing the new name trends every year and guessing what influenced them (how many Katnisses do you think we’ll get this year?). I would like to see more interesting trends for boy names. They get the short end of the stick, I think. Someone should start the petition for trendier boy names. Below are the top 10 names for girls and boys for the year 2011.

Top 10 Names for Girls 2011

  1. Isabella (who saw that one coming…besides everyone)
  2. Emma
  3. Olivia (my hope is this was inspired by Olivia Newton John)
  4. Sophia
  5. Ava
  6. Emily
  7. Madison (I will never not think of the movie Splash when I see this name)
  8. Abigail
  9. Chloe
  10. Mia

Top 10 Names for Boys 2011

  1. Jacob (once again, color me shocked)
  2. Ethan
  3. Michael
  4. Alexander (the Great!)
  5. William (could shorten to Liam)
  6. Joshua
  7. Daniel
  8. Jayden (Big Willy style, obviously)
  9. Noah
  10. Anthony

Of course with new babies on the way, comes baby showers and trying to find a gift that’s useful while still being cute (personally all tiny things are cute to me, especially baby gym shoes that will never even touch a single sidewalk and will be grown out of within a month). We have all the most adorable new baby gifts you could imagine here, including my favorite monkey baby gift. However, for those of you currently planning baby showers, let’s talk some fun and unique baby shower games so that no grown woman will ever have to smell a fake diaper with random mashed food in it again.

Baby shower game ideas:

  • Give your guests a list of television families and have guests list the children from the families. Some families to try: Full House, Brady Bunch, Arrested Development, Leave It To Beaver, Little House on the Prairie, Malcolm in the Middle, Partridge Family, Growing Pains, Bewitched, Step by Step, Cosby Show, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Family Ties, Modern Family.
  • Create a baby guide book with ideas from close family and friends. Sometime during the party, ask each guest to write down their name, relationship to new mom and then some helpful hints, baby advice, words of encouragement. This will be very helpful to new parents!
  • Cake Race. Have people race to build a diaper/baby gift cake using provided materials and reward those who finish first and/or have the most appealing diaper cake!

In the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) tell me your own ideas for baby shower games, new baby gift ideas, or some interesting and trendy baby names! FIVE lucky and random winners will receive a prize of their own.

Have a great weekend!
