Fashionable Food: Watermelon Swiss Cheese Dip

Are you ready for another round of Fashionable Food? For those of you who are just joining us, this is where I pair recipes with designer runway looks. Why in the world would you do this, you ask? Because I see food everywhere and I’m weird, alright?! In the past we’ve seen Oscar de la Renta square off with an Oat Smoothie and Milly taking on a rustic pizza. Today we will witness a battle of wits, I mean dairy, with a Tibi 2018 Fall look versus my Watermelon Swiss Cheese Dip recipe. This is Fashionable Food battle, expert level …

Passion Fruit & Peach Smash Gin Cocktail

Patio season is on the horizon. Yes, I know that might seem like a far-fetched notion for those of you on the East Coast right about now, but trust me. The warmer weather is coming! So it’s time to start preparing. Dust off the lounge chairs. Prune the hedges. And get your cocktail arsenal in order. Because let’s face it, there’s nothing more lovely than sitting on the patio and sipping on a good drink. Today I have a fantastically fruity libation to add to your bag of tricks… the Passion Fruit & Peach Smash Gin cocktail. Drink inspiration can …

Blackberry & Orange Blossom Cheese Danish

This post is sponsored by Pepperidge Farm but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Spring is a time for fresh flowers, blue skies, and fruity cheese Danishes. Well, at least in my world Spring and Danish are synonymous. And yes, I do pair foods with the seasons. Think about it. You’re finally emerging from your wintery cave, breathing in the crisp fresh air, and taking a scrumptious bite of a cheesy pastry. I truly can’t think of a better way to welcome Mother Nature’s bounty. So as we start to get wisps of Spring on the breeze, …

Fashionable Food: Springtime Oat Smoothie

Today is the official launch of my new series “Fashionable Food”. The whole concept of The Frosted Petticoat was born out a daydream I had about making a beautiful dress into an edible piece of art… thus the name of my company. GASP! It all makes sense now, right?! I have always found recipe and food styling inspiration from the runways and I think it’s about time I show you exactly how my process works. Within the next few months, I will be creating recipes and styling shoots based solely off of inspirational runway looks from the year’s fashion weeks. …

Cinnamon Crunch Fruit Jellies

This post was sponsored by Somersaults Sunflower Seed Snacks as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. This Cinnamon Crunch Fruit Jellies recipe is perfect for wholesome snacking the whole family can enjoy! There are ironies in life that are simply cruel. A jeweler’s kid who doesn’t like diamonds. A lactose intolerant ice cream shop owner. A wanderlusting world traveler with a deathly fear of flying. Or a recipe developer who’s daughter is a picky eater. Yup, that last one is me. I also have a traveling soul trapped …

Plum Harvest Jam-10212

Plum Harvest Jam

Aaahh, fall!  The leaves, the cool breeze, the smell of pumpkin spice lattes in the air.  It truly is a magical time of the year and what better way to celebrate it than with a wedding?!  I myself was an autumn bride, opting to ditch the normally warm weathered nuptials for a chilly shindig.  There’s something irresistibly romantic about the season and it’s clearly on display in today’s wedding of Katie and Daniel.  These east coast lovebirds decided to celebrate their love in their favorite month, October… and it couldn’t have been more dreamy!  We were so inspired by these …

Honey Apple Chutney

Today’s sweet South African couple married in stunning shabby chic style.  From gorgeously eccentric floral arrangements to a pretty pastel palette, their day was the stuff that romantic dreams are made of.  We were so inspired by this gorgeous affair, that we created a Honey Apple Chutney recipe to match their adorable favors.  So make sure to grab the delicious recipe and we’ll let event photographer Christine Murray take it from here: Siraj and Sonya have the type of love that makes you believe in all that’s good in this world. Together they are calm, yet crazy in love. Holding …

Mascarpone Rainbow Pizza-15381

Mascarpone Rainbow Pizza

If you have been following along with the blog, then you are well aware that October was National Pizza Month. Yes, awesome. I know. And to celebrate that sacred month of observance, I teamed up with Mama Mary’s® to bring you two sponsored recipe posts: the first was the seasonally appropriate Spicy Harvest Pizza and the second is today’s Mascarpone Rainbow Pizza. You heard me right… Rainbow. Pizza. And yes, I know it’s already November but who said we can’t drag this out a bit longer?! As previously admitted, pizza is a weekly dinner staple in my household. It’s easy to whip …
