Marzetti and House Party.com

On my last post I told you I was picked by Houseparty.com to be a host for Marzetti dressing. This was my first party for Houseparty.com and it was all new to me.  

Who and what is Houseparty.com you ask?  I'll give it my best to tell you.

They are a company who picks you to host a home party.  But it's not your typical home party.  Nope, your not selling a thing.  All they want from you is your thoughts and feedback on the products/brands by their sponsor.  It starts with Houseparty.com sending you a party pack.

 The Party Pack 


Inside the Party Pack 

My party pack included from my sponsor Marzetti:  insulated  full-size grocery bags, packs of wonderful Marzetti recipes cards and $1.50 coupons for each of my guests. For the host they sent me eight coupons for free bottles of Marzetti dressings for my guests to sample.  Then they sent two Salad bowls, one for the host and one for a guest.  All this was in my party pack that was delivered ahead of my party.   

The Goodies 



I picked a fall harvest theme for mine, set up a salad bar with the Marzetti recipes on display for my guests to follow and sample the wonderful dressings.  We had a dessert bar and then we played a holiday game with the harvest-colored wrapped salad bowl. I handed out the Marzetti bags which I had embellished with a harvest-colored ribbon and tossed in two style ink pens.  It was full of non-stop laughter which started at three in the afternoon and did not end until quarter to seven.

All I had to do is host the party; and then fill out a survey that Houseparty.com sent to each of us. Talk about a no-pressure house party!  It was that simple. 

I can't wait to attend or host another houseparty.com home party. I hope you take a minute to check them out.

Mother's day Brunch

For the beginning of May I kept busy with a simple buttercream retirement cake.  I used a butter cream transfer method to create this sweet red motor cycle, camper and camp fire.  Then I  constructed a retirement plaque out of rolled fondant.    Best wishes to the United States Postal Service Person, enjoy your retirement.


On  Mother's Day I did a spring brunch for my mother on Sunday afternoon.  I made this Broccoli-Cheddar Quiche, a recipe I found fromMartha Stewart. I used a pre-made pastry shell and I added portobello mushrooms to the recipe. Using some of the egg white, I brushed on the edge of the pie crust to give that golden glossy shine to it. It was a very easy and quick recipe to whip up and you can even do it ahead of time for convenience.




As a side for the Quiche,  I made a Non-GMO micro-green salad with julienne cucumbers and strawberries,  drizzled with a pomegranate salad dressing.  These delicate micro-greens needed delicate garnishes and doing a julienne cut to the…

Spring Bazaar Arts and Craft

St. John's held their annual Spring Bazaar on April 8th. 

Bake sale items were to help raise money for a new roof.  I made these cupcakes and a few mini cake's with my new Russian cake tips for the bake sale.






I packaged up, the single cupcakes in ice cream cups and taped a clear cup upside down as a cover.  This made for a great to go cup.  




I made up multi packs of three and four cupcakes in spring colored and bunny boxes.

For the mini cakes I removed the cup cake holder insert and placed the 5" cakes inside.  They fit perfectly. 

After checking in, I found the single-serve cups sold faster than the multi-packs.  A good thought for next bake sale. Be sure to stop by next year to check out the wonderful artists and vendors. 


Summer Harvest Party

It’s been a busy summer so far, but I was able to put in a kitchen garden this year.  



It was just in time to win a Ball Made To Share canning House Party which was sponsored by Newell Brands.
