Besos Chiquitos

Monday, April 25, 2011

A weekend full of delicious meals, walks in the sunshine and plenty of time with my sweetheart was the perfect way to while away this beautiful spring weather. I introduced John to the same power yoga I swore off not long ago, and served a completely non-traditional Easter supper-we Greeks always have roast lamb and plenty of red eggs!

How did you spend the weekend?

After seeing this photo, I'm dying to try my hand at besos, Mexican "kisses" often served at weddings. Does anyone have a knockout recipe for these beauties?

P.S. Absolutely swooning over Lucinda at Glitter, Glue and Fireflies' sweet words about my Friday cocktail posts, and the gorgeous vintage glassware she hunted down! If you're in the market for some chic coupes or mid century cocktail shakers, take a peek!
