End of Summer Burgers Recipe & Barbecue Invitations

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

With Labor Day a month away, it’s already time to think about sending out invitations to a barbecue, an end of summer party or a back to school party.

Ranch Cheeseburgers on the Grill

There’s nothing like a barbecue to enjoy the outdoors and all your favorite summer foods before the cooler temperatures of fall force us to once again cook on our stove instead of the barbie.

Hamburgers are a favorite of young and old alike, and a great change on an old favorite is to serve Ranch Hamburgers. They don’t take any longer to make, but the unexpected added flavor will make this recipe a hit.

Passion Fruit Mimosa: Fill a champagne flute half full of chilled champagne, fill the rest of the way with chilled passion fruit juice, gently stir. For garnish, you can add a strawberry or an orange to the rim of each flute. 

Party Mimosa: 

  • 1 (12 ounce) can apricot-mango nectar
  • 1 (12 ounce) can pineapple juice
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed and undiluted

Haunted House decorating tips for your Halloween Party

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

11 Haunted House Decorating TipsHalloween is a great holiday to put your family’s imagination to work, starting with a Spooktacular haunted house!  If you’re having a Halloween party, here are a few decorating tips to make sure your guests have a ghoulishly good time.

  1. Choose a theme.  The first thing you need to do is decide how scary you want to make your house
  2. Plan an entrance and an exit
  3. Add eerie lighting. With some black and red light bulbs, you can change the overall atmosphere of your house. Strobe lights are very effective for disorientating your guests and revealing shocking scenes in little bursts
  4. Black lights add a creepy touch when they’re paired with flourescent paint or glow-in-the-dark cut-outs
  5. Include lots of unexpected scary sounds and music. You can download them from the internet (including the Haunted House sounds)
  6. Make it dark using black trash bags or blankets to cover the windows
  7. Fog is easy to create by mixing dry ice and hot water. Find a local retailer here, just enter your zipcode.
  8. Any house can look abandoned if you cover most furniture with white sheets and then place fake cobwebs in the corners
  9. Use peeled grapes as eyeballs, placing them where people will touch them in the dark.
  10. Use Styrofoam heads from a beauty supply house and turn them into monsters
  11. Spritz visitors’ faces with cold water in the dark or have visitors walk through spider webs made of stretched cotton or silly strings

Lemonade Invitation and Hard Lemonade Recipe

Friday, July 30th, 2010
Lemonade Birthday Invitation

Lemonade Birthday Invitation

Last weekend my sister and I were trying to come up with an afternoon cocktail recipe that felt like summer.  I love mai tais and anything with rum, but rarely have the fruit juices on hand to make them. After looking through what I did have in the house, I remembered a recipe I hadn’t made in a long time – “Hard Lemonade” and thankfully, the only thing hard about it is the name.


  • 1 can frozen lemonade made with 3 cans of water – not the 4 1/3 cans called for
  • 1 bottle of beer makes 2 drinks
  • Vodka or lemon flavored vodka

To make individual drinks:

  • Fill glass half full of ice
  • Fill half full with lemonade
  • Add one shot of vodka (more to your tastes)
  • Fill full with beer
  • Stir and enjoy!

For a low calorie/low sugar version substitute:

  • Crystal light lemonade – use about a third less water to retain a lemonade flavor when the beer is added
  • One of the new 55-64 calorie beers

And yes, the beer is great in the lemonade, it makes it really smooth!
