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!

Raspberry Lemon Cream Galettes

I’m big on delegation, and having guests contribute to the meal, which is where the sharing comes in! And here’s an easy dessert to bring to the party: Raspberry Lemon Cream Galettes. You may also want to try my Mexican Flan Cake! Or these Cinnamon Buñuelos!

All you need are these ingredients:

  • Galette cookies (or Mexican cookies)

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.

Set the table

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

Classic blue-rimmed Mexican beverage glasses.

Dollar Store vibrant-colored vases off to the side, with sweet peas, and tea light candles.

And we always seem to end the party with some tasty treat.
