Dressing up Tartlets and Sandwiches

The honor goes to La Tartine Gourmande with her post about a Celeriac and Long Pepper Tartlet and a picnic with the man of her life on this Memorial Day. Her pictures and writing inspire me to try making adorable tartlets like hers.

And look at how fantastic is her sandwich presentation. If you are a good cook or if you are or pressed by time, you should not be afraid to serve sandwiches to your guests. Simply invite your guests for lunch instead of dinner. Put attention to details and you will be able to impress your guests with any food.

Summer Drink Recipes

Limoncello and Tequila symbolizes summer in my mind. The Kitchn unites both to create a refreshing drink called Limonada. The recipe is on their site.

When I am in a hurry, I pour half a bottle of Limoncello over ice cubes in a pitcher. Then, I fill the pitcher up with light Cranberry juice.  Stir a few times. It is that simple to concoct a tasty festive drink for a crowd in a few seconds.

This cute pink rubber vase designed by Henriette Melchiorsen for Menu completes the picnic design.
