Breakfast doesn’t get much easier than this simple recipe for a Breakfast Bread Boat. A loaf of bread is hollowed out and filled with eggs, vegetables, and cheese, topped with crispy prosciutto, and baked. It takes just moments of preparation time, and it can feed 3-5 people.
Eggs in Poblano Pepper Boats is everything you want in a breakfast – runny eggs with sharp cheddar cheese in a poblano with a slight spice. The best part is that you can whip up this recipe in under 10 minutes.
Caramelized onion and blue cheese stuffed pork tenderloin is a meal bursting with rich flavors that is perfect for a special occasion or holiday meal. If you want to save yourself time you can prepare the caramelized onions a day or two in advance.
Vanilla cupcakes are filled with fresh juicy strawberries and topped with a whipped lime frosting and half of a strawberry. These cupcakes have a light refreshing flavor and are a great alternative to chocolate dessert.
Cocktails complete a party. These are drinks that can be made in batches for easy entertaining. I made a point to include some cocktails that can also be served as a mocktail.

From light fruit-forward cocktails to inventive gin and tonics, these are my go-to drinks. Some of these cocktails can also be served as a mocktail.
This recipe for Rosé Slushies could not be any easier – frozen peaches, frozen cubes of seedless watermelon, frozen strawberries, a dash of vodka, and chilled rosé get tossed into a blender and liquefied.
You can serve this with or without alcohol. It's made with watermelon juice, lemon juice, slices of lemon, cubed watermelon, and slices of cucumber with club soda. It's a little unexpected but very good.
