SUMMER COLOR / STYLED

, $65

is dishing out a serious amount of summer color and i’m loving it! lots of pinks, blues, purples and yellows. that two piece set is so cute and i’m loving all the simply, flowing cuts of the dresses and skirts. their styling is on point too, like the cute t-shirt and white pump look above. many of the options are under $100, including that bias cut skirt above, and you all know how much i love a bias cut (i also love it in ) happy pre-summer shopping! -joanie

such a pretty blue color on this , perfect for summer parties, $85

i love the sweet floral pint on it also comes in . both are$115

if i could, i’d live in kaftans, all summer long, including , $89

i love the fitted waist on , it looks so flattering on the body, $115

such a fun print on this , $85

not to be too on the nose, but would be the perfect 4th of july blouse, no? $55

the two piece i mentioned above, and . would be cut on it’s own, with a white t-shirt.

FRENCH BREAD APPETIZER

i made from Bon Appetit last week when i was having friends over and it was so good we ended up eating straight from the bowl on crackers. it’s packed with parsley and mint which are both really good for you so i’m going to file this under “healthy.” it’s also much less expensive to make than most pestos because it doesn’t call for pine nuts which are really expensive. this appetizer is so good and so easy. you can broil it right before your guests arrive so it’ll be hot, or you can broil it and eat the whole thing between two people, like ivan and i did 🙂 – joanie

what you’ll need:

• 1 french bread loaf
• 1-2 cup cherry tomatoes
• 16oz log of mozzarella cheese
• olive oil
• salt and pepper
• basil as garnish

pesto:
• 2 cups mint
• 1 cup parsley (stems removed)
• 2 garlic cloves
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 3 tablespoons golden raisins
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

• in a blender or preferably a food processor, add the ingredients for the pesto minus the olive oil. on low setting slowly drizzle over the olive oil until there is a smooth consistency. set pesto aside.

cut the french loaf in half and drizzle olive oil over the top of the bread. cover the bread with slices of mozzarella cheese. slice the cherry tomatoes and add to a bowl, toss with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. evenly disperse the tomatoes on top of the mozzarella cheese.

set oven to broil. place the french breads in and broil until cheese melts and bubbles and bread is slightly toasted around the edges.

once removed from the oven add spoonfuls of pesto over the french breads and garnish with fresh basil and more tomatoes. cut into mini or bite size portions and serve while hot.

GRILLED CHICKEN BBQ QUINOA SALAD

grilled chicken bbq quinoa salad | designlovefest

it’s almost memorial day weekend which is basically the entrance of summer and all the fun things that come along with it! but most importantly, summer eating! spring to summer is one of my favorite transitions at the farmer’s market, i love seeing all the produce come in weekly and how it changes throughout the months. sweet corn season can’t come soon enough! if you’re BBQ’ing this weekend we made this grill ready salad which we topped with chicken but any meat on the grill would do. if you’re making it for a smaller group, have people individually dress their salad to keep from the whole thing getting wilted and the leftovers will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator. happy memorial day weekend! – joanie
