Share-A-Chef Wednesday

Hi Everyone! Happy Hump Day! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and is ready for the long Holiday Weekend. I am super excited about the 4th of July, the hubby has to work so we are celebrating on the 3rd of July with family and friends. So for today's chef I wanted to share Geoffrey Zakarian, he is one of the fabulous chefs on the Food Network's "The Kitchen". Geoffrey is a chef/partner at the Lambs Club and The National in New York City. He also has a cookbook entitled "Town/Country 150 Recipes for Life Around the Table and he is a regular judge on the show "Chopped". I discovered him on the "Food Network" and he has the best recipes and today I wanted to share a special treat with you that you can whip up at your summer BBQs, starting with the 4th of July.. So let me know what your holiday plans are and what you will be cooking..

Happy Friday Everyone! We are so excited for the weekend to arrive because we will be celebrating our little girl on Saturday! She officially turns 1 on Monday, July 31 but we are celebrating a few days earlier. I can't even believe that a year has gone by already and we are actually thinking about baby number 2! AHHH! I have been so blessed to be able to stay home with Lilly and see her grow and learn new things every day! We are in love with our little miracle and we can't wait to celebrate her tomorrow! 
I hope that all of you have big and exciting plans for the weekend !

Hello Everyone! We are finally back home and can I just say that I love a good vacation but there is no place like home! We were all so happy to finally sleep in our own beds again and get back to our regular schedule! Vacation is fun but boy is it exhausting! We did have a great time though and I wanted to take this week's Friday Favorites and share some of my favorite moments from our vacation! 
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend and enjoy family and friends!
