I like to think about entertaining as a way to live a more generous, full life. It’s a way to bring close friends, old friends, or new friends together, to relax, enjoy, and share!

I’m big on delegation, and having guests contribute to the meal, which is where the sharing comes in!

Cinco de Mayo.

With Cinco de Mayo almost here, now’s the time to start thinking about your menu and a festive table setting!

We create a lovely setting, invite friends in, everyone contributes and we enjoy delicious food together.

We fill up on friendship and love, encouragement and inspiration.

With my friends at Q Squared, NYC, I recently set a table using their new dish hammered texture line, Talavera Collection.

And, by the way, their product may look like fine china, but it’s 100% highest quality melamine, dishwasher safe (top and bottom rack), heat resistant, and best of all lightweight and durable!

With this beautiful new pattern, it was a given that I’d use their Provence Red flatware and red cloth napkins!

Set the table.

In a small glass vessel I placed dry black beans, and dug up a few succulents from the backyard.

  2. Raspeberry and Lemon go so well together! This recipe is made even more wonderful by putting the pairing on top of those cookies! Looks so good! Very nice presentation as well!

  4. This is a perfect, easy spring dessert and those plates are gorgeous! You really can’t tell at all that it’s melamine!

  5. A simple, creamy, delicious lemon dessert? I’m already in love, but those plates! Gorgeous!

  6. I like to serve either “Pan Dulce” (Mexican sweet bread), flan, or Cinnamon Crispas ala Taco Bell. Just add some great coffee and you’re set!

  7. Hi Sandy!

    I have made your Flan cake from your book!!! I made fajitas, Mexican rice, and a black bean-avocado salad for the dinner! Your cake was a huge hit with our guests!
