Mint Peach Green Tea Cooler

Happy Labor Day to all my U.S. friends! I hope you have a fun and relaxing day planned.

Yesterday was so hot. I wasn’t expecting it, and my husband and I made plans to go to Governors Island. It’s one of my favorite places, but we spent the entire afternoon outside. The trip was super fun/miserable. Let’s just say that I couldn’t wait to crank up the A/C when we arrived home.

Hot, humid weather always makes me crave a cool drink. Iced tea is my favorite, and it’s even better mixed with something fruity. So when I bought some sweet, juicy peaches recently, I did a little experimenting and created this Mint Peach Green Tea Cooler.

Mint Peach Green Tea Cooler | Hello Little Home #drink #recipe #IcedTeaI’m a huge green tea drinker, whether it’s iced in summer and hot in winter. It’s full of healthy antioxidants and even contains a natural chemical called theanine that provides a calming effect. On the flip side, I know that some people find green tea bitter and grassy-tasting. If that sounds like you, then you have to try this cooler!

It’s made with freshly brewed green tea that’s cooled off quickly with an easy trick (no refrigeration needed). Sweet peaches are blended with a bit of sugar – add more or less depending on your taste and the peaches’ sweetness – and then added to the tea. Mint adds fragrant finishing touch.

I made my tea in individual glasses, but feel free to make a big batch. Just remember to use a heat proof pitcher (ask me how I know that!).

Treat yourself to a glass of this fruity and refreshing Mint Peach Green Tea Cooler while we still have a little summer left!

DIY Ombre Tassel Cocktail Napkins

When I attended the HGTV Blogger Block Party last week, I had the chance to create a DIY coaster. Mine definitely wasn’t a masterpiece, but it did get me thinking about all the fun ways to create them.

My home has a few coasters already, and I wanted to make something a little different. I had some worn-out jeans set aside for the perfect DIY project, so I decided to create some cocktail napkins using them.

Of course, everything is better with some embellishment. I love tassels and couldn’t resist incorporating them. That’s how these DIY Ombre Tassel Cocktail Napkins came to be!

Early Fall Wish List

I cannot wait for fall to arrive. Even though we’ve had a cooler than usual summer, it’s still been fairly hot and humid. What can I say? I’m wimpy!

While I’m waiting for cooler temps to arrive, I’ve been shopping my favorite stores and plotting out my early fall wish list. I’m ready to trade in the bright colors of summer for gray, black, and other muted shades.

I’ll be pairing skinny jeans with flowy tops, comfy shoes, and unique jewelry. Here are a few things I have my eye on for fall.

Early Fall Wish List | Hello Little Home #fashion #style

  1. I love the faux leather detail on this NYDJ Contrast Color Block Tee.
  2. This Bobeau Top features a unique twist front and woven back.
  3. Ella Moss’ ‘Stella’ Ruffle Hem Pullover will look great paired with skinny jeans and booties.
  4. I live in scarves during fall, and this Need Supply Co. Scarf has a great oversize plaid pattern.
  5. Statement necklaces, like The Limited’s Multi-Strand Chain & Pearl Necklace, are perfect for dressing up a simple outfit.
  6. NYDJ’s Ponte Blazer has a cool faux leather cuff detail.
  7. This pretty NYDJ Shirred Front Georgette Blouse is the perfect fall color.
  8. I really like the flattering curved hem on this Chevron Print Sweater from The Limited.
  9. This Knotted Pendant Necklace from Forever 21 is a fun statement piece at a great price.
  10. These Need Supply Co. Porter Earrings are the kind of accessory that I would wear nonstop.
  11. Affordable tech cases are hard to find, which is one reason why I love this adorable Forever 21 Heart Cutout Phone Case ($6.80!).
  12. Need Supply Co.’s Burma Cuff has a unique tear drop shape.
  13. I am way overdue for new glasses. BonLook’s cute Jack & Norma style is at the top of my list.
  14. Backpacks are back, and I love Dooney & Bourke’s classic Pebble Grain Pack.
  15. Forever 21′s Ribbed Faux Leather Backpack is another great option, and it can be carried as a regular bag, as well.
  16. I’m obsessed with these Lucky Brand ‘Bartalino’ Booties. They have an awesome embossed stud and zipper detail.
  17. There are not enough comfy shoes in my life. These New Balance 420′s are perfect for long walks around New York.
  18. Sam Edelman’s Calf Hair ‘Becker’ Slip Ons are another comfortable and stylish option.
  19. My ballet flats are in constant rotation, and I love these two-tone TKEES Flats.
  20. Joe’s ‘Laine’ High Rise Skinny Jeans are the perfect gray color.
  21. These NYDJ ‘Ami’ Super Skinny Jeans are the ideal pair of non-distressed dark denim.
  22. I really want a pair of coated jeans, and these Joe’s ‘Rollin’ Zip Skinny Jeans are my fave.

Berry Stuffed Baked French Toast

I used to be a morning person. I’d pop out of bed the minute my alarm went off.

Growing up, my sister was the exact opposite. Her alarm would go off at top volume, waking up everyone but her. Someone would inevitably go in her room and tell her to turn it off. She’d finally hit snooze, and then the same scene would repeat 10 minutes later!

Now I’m not quite that bad, but I can’t seem to resist hitting that snooze button a few times myself lately. But even though I like to sleep in, you won’t find me skipping breakfast.

Usually I keep breakfast simple. Some days I crave something more indulgent though, like this Berry Stuffed Baked French Toast!

Berry Stuffed Baked French Toast | Hello Little Home #recipe #breakfastThis baked French toast is ideal for those mornings when you plan to hit snooze as many times as possible. Just get everything ready the night before and pop it in the oven when you get up. Easy peasy.

Better than easy, however, is decadent! This French toast is stuffed with a lightly sweetened berry cream cheese mixture, and baked until crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. Then, it’s topped with more fresh berries … mmm, so good!

Give this Berry Stuffed Baked French Toast a try the next time you plan to sleep in!

Hello, Friday! Link Roundup

Welcome to the {almost} weekend! I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a little relaxation.

I tromped all over Manhattan this week. First, I attended NY Now, a trade show featuring home, lifestyle, and gift items. It was amazing to see all the unique products and talk to some amazing sellers, but it was also a bit overwhelming (so much to take in). I’m sharing a few pictures of my favorite finds below.

There were a couple other events to attend this week, too! I stopped by HGTV’s Blogger Block Party, which was super fun. There were demos, DIY projects (I painted a coaster), and prizes (a mini herb garden to test my black thumb). I also attended a release for a new DKNY perfume, where I got to meet Dominique Ansel (the guy who created the cronut). Sadly, he ran out of treats just as I made it to the front of the line … oh well. Getting to attend these events is definitely a perk of living in New York!

Before I forget … I have a new Instagram handle: @hellolittlehome. Please follow me! Things are a little lonely right now;)

Now, on to this week’s links:

Get the Look: Dakota Fanning

I’ve got Fall on my brain lately. It’s my favorite season of the year, and I’m ready for sweater weather. Of course, it’s still a little hot for that, so I’ve been searching for a little later summer, early fall fashion inspiration. That’s when I came across a picture of Dakota Fanning.

Now, she’s not the first person I look to for style ideas. For one thing, she’s super young. However, I really love this lady-like outfit that she was spotted wearing in New York.

You don’t need to be 20 to wear this outfit. In fact, it would work for ladies of all ages and shapes. It’s perfect for work or dress it down with jeans. Best of all, you can wear it right into fall simply by adding a cardigan.

Height of Summer Veggie Pizza

I love cooking at this time of year. Everything at the store is so fresh and tempting, and I’ve been picking up corn, zucchini, and tomatoes on every trip.

Since I can’t get enough, I decided to create a recipe that includes all my favorites. That’s how I came up with this Height of Summer Veggie Pizza.

Height of Summer Veggie Pizza | Hello Little Home #recipe #vegetarianYou are going to love this Summer Veggie Pizza! It’s the perfect way to use up all those vegetables that are in abundance right now.

I started by making a simple pizza sauce. It’s full of classic flavors, plus I added some Parmesan cheese for richness. It takes minutes to prepare and no cooking is required!

Then I topped the pizza with my favorite summer veggies. Sweet corn kernels, crisp zucchini, and juicy cherry tomatoes all add a ton of flavor. It’s finished with crumbles of rich goat cheese and a sprinkle of fresh basil.

Make it quick before summer is over!

Height of Summer Veggie Pizza

Yield: 4 - 6 Servings

Height of Summer Veggie Pizza

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1 corn cob
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves
  • 1 lb. pizza dough
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • Sauce:
  • 1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1/8 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Prepare vegetables for pizza: halve cherry tomatoes; remove corn kernels from cob and discard cob; halve and thinly slice zucchini; and julienne basil. Set aside.
  3. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt. Set aside.
  4. Lightly oil a baking sheet with olive oil or cooking spray.
  5. Place pizza dough on baking sheet and gently press to edges of pan.
  6. Top dough with a light layer of sauce (you may have some left over).
  7. Cover sauce with 1 1/2 cups of the mozzarella cheese.
  8. Sprinkle tomatoes, corn, and zucchini evenly over cheese.
  9. Cover vegetables with remaining mozzarella.
  10. Crumble goat cheese over mozzarella.
  11. Place pizza in oven and cook until crust is browned and top is golden, about 20 - 25 minutes.
  12. Remove pizza from oven and let cool slightly.
  13. Slice pizza, sprinkle with basil, and serve. Enjoy!

Notes

  • - I used a rectangular baking pan to cook my pizza, however you can use a round pizza pan or even divide the dough to make individual pizzas. Either will work.
  • - If your pizza dough will not stretch to the edge of your pan, let it rest for a few minutes. Press it again and then let relax more, if necessary.

Hello, Friday! Link Roundup

Hi, friends! Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ve had a great week.

Mine has been pretty quiet after a busy weekend. We were in Brooklyn again (why does everything happen in Brooklyn?!?) to see some bands, and then to see Shakespeare in the Park back in Manhattan the next day. We wrapped up the weekend with a picnic in Central Park. It’s been way too long since we had one of those.

This weekend, I’m hoping we’ll have time for another picnic, and I’m also heading to NY Now, a trade event showcasing home, lifestyle, and handmade items. It’s really fun to attend these events, meet producers, and of course, share my favorite finds with you. Here’s hoping my feet hold up!
