I had the pleasure of helping a friend out with a baby shower this past weekend. This was my first time creating a full menu and preparing everything from appetizers to desserts for a group of people. I was so happy with the way everything turned out (and so honored that she asked me to help)!
The menu included the following:
Oat Snack Mix -- Everyone always seems to love this and I served it in cupcake liners so it would be easier to snack on.
Caprese Salad Bites with a Balsamic Reduction -- Such a pretty little appetizer.
Herb Goat Cheese Spread with Crackers -- This spread should be included every time I serve cheese and crackers.
Apple-Rosemary Blue Cheese Bites (not pictured)
Honey Yogurt Dip with Fresh Fruit -- I could eat this on its own (greek yogurt -- my fav) but a great dip to serve with fruit -- and only 3 ingredients!
Spinach Salad -- Year after year this salad seems to make an appearance at every family gathering -- Christmas, Thanksgiving, graduations, family reunions, you name it!
Chicken Salad with Cranberries and Walnuts -- A nice spin on chicken salad and nice and light -- just the way I like it.
White Chocolate Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Frosting -- I thought these flavors seemed great for fall. This is a denser cupcake so I'm glad I made them mini. The idea for the chocolate "A" came from a friend -- love this idea!
Pumpkin Blondies -- These have been a hit with everyone who has tried them!
Cake Bites -- Chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate coating.
I will be sharing all of these recipes with you in the coming days and weeks. If you have any preferences for which I post first, please let me know -- would love to hear from you :)
Side note: Sarah and Molly are enjoying the weekend together in Charleston. Wish I was there!!
