Giveaway No.2 Boy’s Lego Birthday, Chalkboard Labels

Inspired by Quinn’s Lego Head labels we bring to you our second giveaway of the month: a Lego party! With a colorful backdrop these slick black chalkboard labels would really pop.
Everybody loves Legos – from childhood right up through our adult years. There’s just something about those primary colors, the way they are transformed in our hands into houses, cities, and even castles and space crafts! PremierPartiesLV is a great start for a fun-filled party.

ToEnt Lego

Planning a party of close friends? This Lego tower invitation would be a real hit. Kids love to play, so what better way to get them excited than with an invitation they can really have fun with?!
We pulled together some of our favorite ideas from Pinterest to share with you all – games like “I spy the lego guy,” personalized lego figure craft, and a silly photo booth to make memories with friends.

ToEnt Lego4

Key ideas when planning a fun and easy DIY party: think primary colors, printables, and lots and lots of legos! We love the use of little lego men to hold the candles, and how about a helpful and fun silverware-holder that the birthday boy could even help make?! (Photos are links back to our Pinterest page, where we collected our Pinspiration. Be sure to check it out!)

BBQ Pork Spare Ribs–Fall off the bone tender! Recipe

 Tender & packed full of flavor, this easy recipe requires little work (in fact, through it in an aluminum pan like this one and it requires no clean-up either!) and is a summer favorite in our backyard gatherings. Oven cooked means no one stands at the grill instead of enjoying the party, and the minimal finishing touches means less time in the hot kitchen and more relaxing by the pool with guests.

Try these babies…you won’t be sorry!

DSC_0493

Ingredients:

1lb of pork spare ribs per person, cut into 3-4 rib portions
Your favorite BBQ sauce
*I like “Stubbs”, or anything light in color–more spice & less sweetness

Spice Rub–equal parts:
garlic powder
chili powder
salt
pepper
onion powder
paprika
*if you like it spicy, add a pinch of red pepper flakes
(start with a few teaspoons of each for a smaller amount of ribs)

In a large quart baggie, mix all seasonings to make the rub. Shake the bag to mix well. Add a rib portion into the bag and coat it well – shake it up so it is covered. Lay each seasoned rib in an aluminum (disposal) pan sprayed with Pam. Cover with foil and cook at 325 for apprx. 2 hours. Take off the foil and brush well with the BBQ sauce.  Continuing cooking for 30 min.  Turn ribs, brush on add’l BBQ sauce and cook another 15 or until fork tender.  Enjoy!

Fresh Red Cream Pasta, Recipe

 Whilst in New York City last weekend I had the most delicious pasta at Becco–ever been? Oh! The fresh noodles, the flavorful sauces, the waiters bringing you endless “seconds”. This drizzly Michigan Monday I’m finding myself longing for that lovely hot pasta and the hustle bustle of that city I love! This fresh from scratch pasta will have to suffice…

Red Cream Pasta
DSC_0952

Ingredients
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 chopped onion
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1-32 oz can of crushed tomatoes
2/3 cup cream
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 lb cooked noodles of your choice

Saute chopped onions in olive oil over medium heat until translucent. Add minced garlic cloves keeping a close eye and only letting them cook for 1 minute or two until fragrant. It’s important not to let the garlic turn brown or burn! Add chopped oregano, salt and pepper, then let it cook another minute or so before adding crushed tomatoes. Simmer uncovered on low heat (careful not to let it burn!) for about 30-40 minutes occasionally stirring. Add the chopped basil and the Parmesan cheese and stir until the cheese melts. Next add the heavy cream and stir to combine. The sauce should become a nice light red-orange color…remove from heat and combine with cooked pasta.
Bon Appetit!

DSC_0949P.S. Around here our pasta of choice is the homemade kind…soft, thin, and fresh! Nothing like it!
