Your New Go-To Dinner Party Recipe!

Your New Go-To Dinner Party Recipe!

While we are enjoying amazing fall weather this weekend, the days will start to get colder (unfortunately). With summer days full of bbqs, and long hot afternoons spent on the dock behind us, my favourite part of the cooler, shorter days to come is the renewal of the dinner party! While the actual party itself is just the best, the prep work can be a bit stress inducing. What to serve, how much to make etc. Don't worry, we've got you covered!

Homemade Rhubarb Juice

Homemade Rhubarb Juice

Rhubarb season is upon us and I am so excited to share this super easy recipe with you! Not only is this recipe super easy and delicious, but it also has European influence; I had it for the first time while in Hamburg Germany this past May. In Germany, you can buy rhubarb nectar at every corner store to make your own delicious drinks, so upon arrival home, I was seriously missing it and determined to re-create it!

The #domesticphd does NYC: Gastronomic Highlights

Spotted: The #domesticphd taking in the sights (and tastes) of New York City. My love of Gossip Girl and Sex and the City had created a strong yearning to visit 'the city that never sleeps'.  Not surprisingly then, upon arrival, everything felt oddly familiar. I felt like I belonged casually sitting on the steps of the Met, drinking fancy cocktails in a trendy downtown bar, and strolling through Central Park. The energy of the city is electric and while the sights are amazing, the food was even better! Read on for a little run down of the places we ate and drank on our four-day getaway!
