Summer, for me, is all about the happy hour. I have a post planned for next week which goes a little more in depth with the ‘why’ I’m happy hour crazy, but in the meantime, let’s just enjoy a few drinks, shall we?

I am not sure if you follow on Instagram (if not, you should, click here), we’ve been having some amazing fun over there this summer, and it’s been going on every Friday.  And if you’re a fan of happy hour, like me, it’s something you shouldn’t miss.

Each Friday, I’ve been working to create the perfect pairing of a small snack and a glass of wine (my HH beverage of choice).  This is designed to be a go-to idea bank for you.  Your happy hour entertaining will jump to the next level with some of our recipes and pairings.  Plus, a few of them are easy enough to do in about 5 minutes after you walk in the door from work.
