I got to take a trip last week and learn all about Certified Angus Beef. The Ohio Beef Council invited me on their #BeefMeetsBlog event where I got to meet other food bloggers from Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Wisconsin and we all got to see how Angus cows are raised for beef and then broken down to sell in Meijer stores across the country. It was a true FARM TO TABLE experience!

Watermelon Margaritas

Watermelon Margaritas by Foodtastic Mom

While I could happily chow down on Mexican food several times a week (tacos, tostadas, chips and guacamole, fresh garden salsa… bring it ALL on) I’m not a huge fan of margaritas. They are a one and done drink for me so if I’m going have one, it better be good. And these fresh Watermelon Margaritas are GOOD!

I just returned from a whirlwind blogging trip all about beef (more about that in future posts). So with Cinco de Mayo next week I’m currently dreaming about steak tacos and roasted poblano chimichuri sauce. So I figured I’d better have a pretty spectacular margarita to compliment those tacos (I’ll be sharing that recipe with you soon too).

Raspberry Fluff

This Raspberry Fluff is a modernized version of Julia Child’s classic Raspberry Bavarian Cream. Fresh, tart raspberries are folded in a mixture of real whipped cream, raspberry jello and vanilla pudding for a simple yet incredibly satisfying potluck-worthy dessert.

I own a copy of Julia Child’s classic cookbook, “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” but to be honest I haven’t cooked much from it. Maybe one day I’ll try more than just a handful of her classics but in the meantime I rely on shortcuts when I need them. Which is often.

Weekly Meal Plan (April 24 – May 1)

Weekly Meal Plan (April 24 - May 1) by Foodtastic Mom

Hi all! Who’s excited for the Game of Thrones premiere tonight? I never thought I’d become a fan, but I am completely hooked. The characters and complex story line are so compelling that it compensates for its graphic nature (I normally can’t handle that much violence in a show). Tyrion Lannister is my personal favorite character, what about you?

So if you’re glued to your TV tonight, your meal plan for the upcoming week is one less thing you’ll have to think about. We’ve got Mexican, Asian, American and Polish cuisine going on this week, plus my favorite salad of ALL time. Hope you’re hungry…

I like playing with PicMonkey sometimes to create unique printables to help with my gifting needs. And I seem to have a color theme going based on my previous Father’s Day Gift. I didn’t even think about that until I started editing these Mother’s Day gift photos. But it’s a fun and simple idea so might as stick with what I know, right?!
