#1. sangria.

Need I say more?

Well, I will anyway—this one is a white wine-based recipe for summer. My dear friend Carolina is from Argentina, and she makes a similar drink called clariquot that is to die for. Basically, overnight you soak almost any fruit you want (green grapes, peaches & nectarines are my favorite) in a liqueur with some sugar, then add some white wine the next day. Too easy, too delicious. Nummy. 

#2. open shelving.

I love love love plain white dishes. They keep the focus on the food & they look amazing on display. And I really love having all my plain dishes in plain sight, with no middle-man like a cupboard door to get in the way.

#3. sun tea

So simple, so summer. Click here for a recipe to try it yourself!
