1. Summer Corn Salad

    3WCircle-4-2601371295-O 2

    Nothing screams outdoor entertaining like a yummy corn on the cob, but I cannot tell you how many of my guests politely says “No Thanks!” because they hate getting corn in their teeth! While I have contemplated serving Floss alongside my corn stalks, I decided a friendlier version would be to incorporate this yummy veggie into an easy chewing Summer Corn Salad. I made this recipe for a party last summer and it was a delicious success! The light lemon dressing makes it so refreshing, and best of all, it’s incredibly simple! Enjoy!

    Your entryway is the first thing people see when they enter your home, so what do you want it to say about you? I was very torn when styling my new home because I wanted it to scream sleek and cool like my dining room shelves, but I also wanted it to feel cozy and inviting, similar to the vibe of my old apartment {I do have a family to cater to!}. So I found a nice balance between the two looks by combining modern art and an organic woven bench… read on for how I pulled it all together. I started with a…
