Raspberry Margaritas

Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Raspberry Margaritas are a favorite pitcher cocktail perfect for parties from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

We made a pitcher of these Raspberry Margaritas way back at Cinco De Mayo, but I think they would be a hit for 4th of July!  

They are an absolute favorite for summertime barbecues, parties or just to enjoy on the back patio to kick off the weekend.

I mean who doesn't love an easy Pitcher Margarita recipe? They are absolutely delicious! 

The best part of these Raspberry Margaritas is they can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Just add ice to the glasses instead of the pitcher when serving.

It's definitely a favorite pitcher cocktail recipe for summer entertaining along with Peach Whiskey Iced Tea, Strawberry Grapefruit Iced Tea, Spiked Blackberry Lemonade, and Slushy Mango Margaritas

Colt's Juicy Burgers are a favorite on the grill! Add cheese for a delicious Cheeseburger from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

We call these Colt's Juicy Burgers at home. They're super simple but it's his signature burger.

He always gets asked what he adds to his burgers, so I thought I would finally convince him to share his secrets to a juicy burger. He even made a video to go with the recipe! 

These are a family favorite and it's always requested that Colt makes his signature burgers.

When the weather's not nice enough to grill outside he'll even fry them in the cast iron pan in a little butter, making these a year around favorite.

Mediterranean Couscous Pasta Salad

Thursday, May 9, 2019
Mediterranean Couscous Pasta Salad is a simple side dish recipe or light dinner with fresh herbs, olives, artichokes, bell pepper, spinach, and lots of other goodies from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

We made Mediterranean Couscous Pasta Salad awhile back to go with Greek Chicken. It's an easy go to pasta salad for all the summer barbecues, picnics, and potlucks that happen.

I used the larger Israeli Couscous or also known as Pearl Couscous, because I prefer the larger texture for pasta salad. Israel Couscous is the size of small pearls when cooked, and is usually made from wheat flour or semolina flour. 

To cook Israel Couscous it is boiled unlike regular Couscous that's steamed.  

I made a herbed vinaigrette to dress the Couscous Salad. I then added kalamata olives, capers, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, garbanzo beans, cucumbers, bell pepper, spinach, and fresh herbs.

It's very similar to our other favorite Mediterranean Pasta Salad that was featured in Better Homes and Gardens in the July issue with just a few small changes.

Definitely a family favorite that never lasts long.
