Bunny Turns 5!

As you probably know, I have a bunny. He’s cute and fluffy and loves to eat (don’t we all?). However, Cowboy is a little different than other bunnies because at age 2, he got sick and became both blind and deaf. His lifestyle has surely changed, but he’s a happy lil guy with a great community that loves him.

Whenever I leave town, I feel so comforted dropping him off at the bunny motel at Stargazing Farm in MD. They take great care of all the farm animals who need extra love.

Onto the food! This year’s party was garden themed and there were vegetables on every inch of the table- fondant veggies, veggie cookies, veggie pie, and of course real life veggies. Here are some photos of Cowboy’s hoppy birthday —

If you’d like to throw your own garden birthday, check out my Etsy shop for graphics, signs, and invite printable files! I suggest going to your local farmers market to buy their extra pallets, containers, and vegetable boxes.

Just a little food porn…

We had a small happy hour at our apartment this past week that turned out really nicely. I was in way too much of a rush to take pictures (always my problem!) but it was too cute to not post. First things first, THESE TOMATOES. As delicious as they are pretty. edited_860

This is a go-to quick recipe my mom used to make for dinner parties. It is always such a hit, I’m embarrassed to say how effortless it is. 8 oz cream cheese + 1/2 cup raspberry chipotle sauce!edited_861

Second on the menu was prosciutto & goat cheese toasts with a blackberry ginger balsamic. I picked up the balsamic this weekend while I was in St. Michaels, Maryland. It was super rainy so there was nothing to do but shop!edited_865 edited_867edited_872edited_877

Third, I made rosemary parmesan foccacia bread. The bread flour is a necessity in my pantry lately. Also, pantry is a loose term- more like hoarding space where I fit as much as I can into a cabinet without causing a food avalanche.  The dried rosemary didn’t flavor the bread as well as I hoped, but I didn’t have any fresh. Never again!edited_874

Our wonderful landlord sent us this cookie delivery from Captain Cookie and the Milkman in DC. Wish I could say I made these beauties, but I just ate them instead 🙂edited_876

Lastly- onion dip with veggies!edited_879
