Blueberry-Peach Sangria

Even though it isn't officially summer yet... is my official summer drink.  It's my favorite sangria.  Blueberries and peaches and moscato. With a touch of simple syrup, peach juice and peach schnapps.

I don't think you even need a playlist while you are preparing this.  It's so quick and easy to prepare, just throw the ingredients into a pitcher and stir.

I realize, however, that playlists are a tradition on this blog so I will give you the one and only song that will put you in the mood to make this sangria:

Cooking Show--Girls' Night!

We filmed an episode of the cooking show last week.

My friend, Amy, cooked with me.  She suggested a theme of "Girls' Night"...she felt that she needed some different recipes to try when she gets together with friends.

We put our heads together and came up with an assortment that should satisfy all of her guests!

You may think that you don't like artichokes, but this dip will change your mind.  The first few times I made it, I told my husband it was cheese dip.

By the time he found out that there were artichokes in it, he liked it so much that he didn't care what was in it.  It's probably his most-requested appetizer now.

Just thread the tomatoes, mozzarella and basil onto the skewers, throw the vinaigrette together and drizzle it on.

This is a restaurant knock-off recipe.  There's a little bit of advance prep involved, but the finish is totally hands-off--you just smother it in mushrooms and cheese and stick the whole pan into your oven to finish cooking.

It's so worth it.

This disappeared really fast.  Poof, and it was gone.
