Yesterday we celebrated Ellie's second birthday and Mallory's twenty-fourth birthday with a little party.
I made some of my favorite recipes and tried a few new ones which I'll be sharing over the next week. The menu included bruschetta, chicken caesar salad, a tortellini and brocolli salad, pasta salad with Italian dressing, bacon-wrapped potato bites, clementines (Ellie's favorite food) and saltwater taffy (one of Mallory's faves). And we had three cakes: a chocolate with chocolate buttercream (you can find the recipe for the frosting on this cake recipe), a pink almond party cake and a strawberry lemonade cake. Apparently everyone enjoyed the fare... there were only crumbs left over.
