Newly Engaged Breakfast!!


Plate and Glassware: Crate and Barrel

Some newly engaged couples are new to cooking for two. Or cooking at all! Don't be alarmed. I have some super fun and easy recipes that will make your microwaveable college days seem so far away. 

These Banana and Raspberry Jam Pancakes taste a-mazing and are so simple to make. 

1. Take Bisquick Shake 'n Pour (6-8 serving size) and add 2/3 cup of seltzer. 
The seltzer makes the pancakes extra fluffy!
2. Take half a banana (or full depending on your liking) and mash till smooth
3. Combine banana and batter
4. Pour batter into buttered pan on medium heat
5. Give pancakes about a minute and a half on each side or until golden brown.
6. Top with mashed Smucker's Raspberry Jam and favorite syrup
7. Finished it off with freshly sliced bananas. 

The consistency of the banana in the pancake is so stinkin' good. Then that extra hint of sweetness with the raspberry jam is amazing. 

*Note for newly engaged couples: the coffee is my iced venti skim latte, poured into a stemless glass. Classy. =)

Perfect Details: Chiavari Chairs


Can I let you in on a secret? Chair covers- freak me out. 

I think a lot of couples overlook chairs as a detail to their wedding day. But truth be told, they are the first thing I notice when I walk into a ballroom. How can they not be? 

I always suggest to my couples that they look into Chiavari (ballroom) chairs. Aren't they beautiful? And come in probably every color you can think of, so there are no excuses!
