Pineapple Coconut “MockMosa”

its a boy

AJ and I are expecting a baby boy this October! Untitled copy I am finally lacing up my MasterChef boot straps and reclaiming my Brave Apron after months of “non bloggable” dishes.  Thanks Annie’s Mac and Cheese and Trader Joe’s Corn Bread for getting me through the first few months- I’ll see you again in a couple years.  Alas, I am ready to get back in the kitchen!

Last weekend my Mom and best friend Katie threw me an adorable  Baby Shower.  Love was pouring out of the details- from the hand cut Onesie Picks for the Appetizers to the blue and white trimmed flower vases and seasonal New England menu. My mom even traveled with a bassinet that she wove when she was pregnant with me in California 30 summers ago from Seattle to Boston that held center stage on a beautiful stand that AJ built.   I was so touched by the time and personalization that went into the day.


The Menu:

  • Caprese Skewers

tomato mozz

  • Watermelon Feta Bites with Mint and Balsamic

watermelon cubes

  • Curried Chicken Salad Pita Pockets

  • Mini New England Lobster Roll on Buttered Brioche

  • Cupcakes from Sweet!


And in addition to the orange juice and peach nectar mixers for prosecco,  there was a flute-worthy Pineapple Coconut “Mockmosa”!
