Summer BBQ

Back over the Fourth of July, we had a small BBQ with friends. It was a last minute decision and so we didn’t have as many people as we would have liked, but it was still a great day. I didn’t ask guests to bring much, drinks mostly, so that means I made everything myself. Lucky for me, one of those guests was my close friend and an incredibly talented photographer; check out her stuff on her website at She brought along her camera and was able to, once again, make my food look even better than it really was. Thanks Kris!

I created a make-shift cupcake tower using my glass cake stand and a round glass vase turned over. It ended up looking pretty cool and notice the cute cupcake wrappers!

And to drink we sipped Blueberry Limoncello Coolers!

All the food tasted delicious, even my runny deviled eggs! My favorites were the tomato bread salad and the blueberry cupcakes with lemon frosting. Thanks again to KM Photography Studio for the incredible photos!

Anyone out there have a Summer BBQ or attend one this Summer that had a particular dish that rocked your world? (yep, I just used “rocked your world”, I’m a kid of the 90′s, so sue me!)
