Et Voilà! French Bistro opened earlier last month and I recently had brunch there with my good friend CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High. The modern French bistro features classic French dishes.

This S’mores Mug cake makes a fun, single-serving dessert that cooks in just one minute in the microwave. It’s a graham cracker flavored cake, mixed with melted chocolate and topped with torched marshmallows.

I woke up the other morning craving a S’mores Mug Cake. The hot weather seems to have hit early this year and the summer weather had me in the mood for making s’mores. We didn’t actually make any. I need to throw a summer party soon so I can have an excuse to roast S’mores over an open fire. But until then, this S’mores mug cake will do nicely.

These sparkling pink raspberry lemonade cocktails are delicious, refreshing and easy. They make a great drink to serve at a summer gathering and can be made as a cocktail or mocktail. Be sure to check out the recipe at the end of this post and enter my giveaway for a $100 gift card! 

One of my favorite parts of planning summer menus are the drinks. I love finally getting to use my fancy cocktails glasses, pitchers, ice cubes, and serving trays. I always try to make a colorful drink that looks elegant and festive. These sparkling cocktails are just that. They are also really easy to make, with just a few simple ingredients. All you need is some fresh mint, raspberries, sparkling water or wine, and Simply Lemonade® with Raspberry.
