There is just nothing like a crisp, cold margarita to sip on while enjoying a Mexican meal. Both sweet and tart, this bevvy contrasts in the most beautiful way with the flavors and spices of Mexican cuisine.

I created this Prosecco Margaritas recipe in big-batch cocktail form. All the measuring is done ahead of time, so all you have to do is divide the margarita mixture amongst glasses when your friends arrive, top it off with chilled bubbles of Prosecco, and sit back and enjoy.

Sunny warmth has been trying so hard to become a common theme around here, and I’m making every attempt to coax it along. We’ve been grilling a few times each week for the past couple weeks, even if the weather hasn’t quite allowed us to open up the table umbrella for a meal out on the deck yet. But the time is drawing near, my friends. And I have this fresh and light Cucumber Pico de Gallo to share with you, for your fine weather eating pleasure.

We just bid farewell to March, Easter is peeking from around the corner, and spring is begging to be let loose from its cold temperature confines. My mind is slowly drifting away from a desire to eat an all-out comfort food menu, to one of lighter fare. I’m thinking about grilling outdoors, plucking ultra tender and delicious greens from our garden, and pouring lemonade into tall glasses filled with ice. Yes, I’m in a spring and summer state of mind (waiting patiently for the temps to rise so I can actually break out the flip-flops).

If you’re looking for a pretty and super tasty way to add a little sweetness to this weekend’s Easter celebration, or any gathering coming up this spring and summer, then I have just the recipe for you. These Mini Phyllo Cups with Coconut Cream, Raspberries, and Dark Chocolate offer dessert in miniature-sized portions, beautiful little bites for any occasion.

Leftover ham? This simple Herby Ham Salad is creamy, tangy, and utterly delicious.

Herby Ham Salad from afarmgirlsdabbles.com #pinkpork

Did you grow up on ham salad? I don’t remember my mom making it, but my aunt Mary Jane did. It was a sandwich spread I could count on at each of my cousin’s graduation parties. Mary Jane also offered her famous tiger meat, a rare find at most gatherings, especially nowadays, and one that I can’t personally vouch for. No, thank you.

My aunt’s ham salad, though. I’ve missed that spread.

When I admitted to my sisters that sometimes, when I’m on a road trip to and from South Dakota and North Dakota, I’ll pick up one of those pre-packaged ham salad sandwiches out of the cooler case at a gas station…well let’s just say they weren’t very impressed. All Cheryl and Jessica could do was scrunch up their faces in disgust. I laughed it off, and really don’t care. In fact, I can guarantee that I’ll eat more of those gas station sammies on future road trips. But the conversation also made me face the facts. It was due time that I experimented with making ham salad at home. You are going to LOVE this Herby Ham Salad. I promise!
