bon fire recipes

Oh So Delicioso is a cooking experience comprised of six awesome friends who bring their passion for food to their blog each and every day. Doling out tips and advice, best gadgets and gear, it’s the perfect landing spot for the newbie home cook to a party throwing veteran chef. Today they’re sharing the perfect mobile dessert for your next bonfire!

And in twenty minutes you’ll have something simply delicious!


Because any foodie is a friend of ours, here’s what we learned about the Oh So girls!:

bonfire recipes

“Our vision of an extraordinary meal, party, or holiday usually entails more than the food in our bellies. And we know yours does too. We also know that you have questions about the difference between olive oil and canola oil, and how your mom gets her muffins so dang fluffy (don’t even think about overmixing!).

Want to know what kitchen utensils we’re diehards about? Need a recipe card, or muffin printable for your party of the year? We have it. We love food around here. We love how it brings people together. We love how it leaves you fulfilled (and keeps you from getting ‘hangry’: the irritability and/or anger one experiences when hungry).

We love how creating a decadent chocolate cake for an intimate gathering of friends satisfies so much more than a food craving. We love providing natural, healthy meals for our families. We love picking the place settings, designing the recipe handouts, and seeing our kids’ faces light up as they build their masterpiece lunch, ‘Ants on a Log’ (while we secretly re-live some of the magic from our own childhood).”

We are right their with you girls! Some people eat to live, we live to eat, and it sounds like you do too. Welcome home.

Novogratz for CB2

This post brought to you by CB2. All opinions are 100% mine.

We are huge fans of the Novogratz Family, Emily especially! Their Bravo show Nine By Design was the one and only iTunes television purchase she ever made, and when we ran into head of the house, Bob, in Greenwich Village while we were in New York City, she enthusiastically accosted him in a cross walk. Bob was incredibly gracious, although the cabbies were not. We can’t get enough of their quirky design aesthetics and free-sprited family. Living with seven kids (Wolfie, twins Bellamy and Tallulah, Breaker, twins Five and Holleder, and Major Novogratz, to be precise) in Manhattan seems impossible, but they do it, and make us want big families, too!


Needless to say, we’ve been loving following their design collaboration with CB2 in the CB2 and Novogratz Collection over the last couple years. Their new line is inspired by their vacation home in Trancoso, Brasil and it is colorful and vibrant and perfect for Summer! In celebration of the new line, the Novogratz family is opening their vacation home to one winner and three of their friends for a week! On top of that 10 more entrants will win $100 gift cards and a signed copy of their design book Novogratz Home. Enter the awesome sweepstakes until June 3rd here.

Here are our favorite pieces from the line!

Chalk portraits! Have a buddy do an outline and then get to work on a self-portrait. Bring a judge in to guess whose portrait belongs to who for prizes.

Bounce a Shape! You call out the shape and they have to bounce the ball on it from a stationary point. A great lesson in shapes and hand eye coordination. (Do it with letters, numbers, states, or whatever subject you’re trying to tackle!)
