Casual Dining

Just checking in friends!!! I’ve been busy with updating ye old Shoppe. You will see the updates this coming weekend. I’ve been madly making fabulous aprons, mad hattering, and I’ve got a little Valentine Surprise up my sleeve for the buying. In the meantime, I thought I would write a little of my lovely weekend. We had some close friends over for dinner. I cooked and slaved away all day Saturday. It was such fun. Remember that fabric? Well, here is what it turned out to be. A small tablecloth for my little retro table. I’ll be back with a tutorial shortly. Just a simple little thing.

On to the menu of Saturday evening’s feast! We had those Stuffed Quinoa Pitas that I blogged about not too long ago. Hot Rolls, fruit salad with real whipped cream no less, roasted brussel sprouts and luscious Chocolate Fondue!

I got a little nuts with the fondue and made some cinnamon marshmallows. We also skewered cinnamon bears, pretzels, pineapple, strawberries, raspberries and bananas to coat in the chocolate goodness. If you have not fondued you really must. Oh my goodness! Such fun! And such a decadent little treat. I’ve added my little recipe below, which I can hardly call a recipe since there’s really only two ingredients. My oh my, it is good. Hope your weekend and week has gone beautifully. I’ll see you this weekend with the Shop Update!

Chocolate Fondue Sauce

1 12 oz. package semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Cup heavy whipping cream

In a saucepan, on medium-low heat, melt and continually stir your chocolate chips. Add heavy whipping cream and stir until chocolate chips and whipping cream coagulate. For thinner consistency, add more cream. Pour into your fondue pot and serve with fresh fruits, candies, pretzels, etc. Enjoy this melt-in-your-mouth treat! Perfect for parties!

  1. Yummy! You’re so domestic now, Sunni, I just love it! I also can’t wait to try out some of these recipes and you do inspire a girl to want to decorate with a flourish. Good luck with everything and hopefully I can see you next time we’re in Utah!

  2. I think it would! I just didn’t want mine to be so sweet. I think I will be a little sweeter with milk chocolate! It’s sinfully good. Everyone kept saying how good it was! And it was so fun with that Hershey Kiss!
