You love to entertain, but between kids, work and everything else you have on your plate, you feel like there is never enough time. When you do entertain, you want to be able to impress your family and friends with great food and cocktails without wasting precious quality time in the kitchen slaving away over the stove.
We get it! We have been there too.
We believe that everyone has the time to entertain, it just requires a plan
After all, food can be a lot more than just food, can’t it? Sharing a meal is a way to connect with the people we care about. Opening your home to family and friends and serving them a delicious meal is a beautiful way to show that you care. It can be a LOT of fun too!
- entertaining more often with less stress
- feeling confident that the food you serve will really impress your guests
- creating amazing cocktails for special occasions
- feeling fulfilled by the time spent connecting with the important people in your life
- having a plan so you won’t spend the whole night in the kitchen while your friends enjoy the fruits of your labour

Julie and Debbie, That was an absolutely delicious recipe and many thanks for your correspondence throughout this process. The delicious drink was given a unanimous double thumbs up and what is far more impressive is that it was unanimously and instantaneously agreed-upon as a new Thanksgiving tradition! Thank you again for the recipe and your support. – Bruce

So, for anyone looking at the recipe and thinking this is overwhelming, it’s really not and it will definitely please a crowd!!! – Kevin

We are busy women too! We have a day jobs, we blog, we have families that need our attention, AND we love to entertain with great food and cocktails. Food is our love language! We’ve both had moments where we don’t want ANYONE over because of the extra work required to make a big meal fit for company. Through the years we have learned, it’s all about having a plan! When you have a plan, entertaining is so much more doable, even on short notice or if you want to go a little upscale on the formality of the occasion.
Now when we entertain, we always create a plan. We create beautiful, healthy food and cocktails with ingredients that don’t cost a fortune or keep us in the kitchen while our company is here. We love it when a plan comes together and we get to enjoy connecting with family and friends and wow them with our food and cocktails.
