Mi casa es su casa!

  Soak up this ‘Hacienda’ Style, south of the border Invite, from my May

feature in 425 Magazine. Rich texture and tropical flora & flowers create an eye-popping  

backdrop, for gorgeous, Spanish style street food –

from churros…to chopped salad and mushroom empanadas. 



(YES, I said churros! BAKED churros! Super simple to make, too! ) 



AND come summer, don’t you just  l o v e  a chilled soup starter!? Bring on the

Gazpacho! Look at that color!

Deep red tomatoes, vibrant yellow bell peppers, fennel, jalapeño and pale green cucumbers,

ALL blender blitzed into orange-pink perfection.



Loved collaborating with anko USA for all of my beautiful tableware! Thank you!

Also loved partnering with Wells Medina Nursery, in Bellevue, Washington for all of my

tropical plant needs! The exotic vibe is SO cool! Thank you!

This, Tie-waist, V-neck jumpsuit is the perfect party vibe, thanks to Aritzia, Bellevue!

Thank you!  (It comes in navy and white too!)

Of course, ANY  entertaining I do, always starts with a pretty little sip, duh!


Hope this cucumber and jalapeño margarita  works for ya :)

Check out the fresh borage blossoms…they actually taste like cucumber!


Any-who, you can find ALL of these simple and delish recipes online NOW at 425 Magazine

Cheers to entertaining at Home, Hacienda style!
