Please give a warm welcome to my friend Linda from Brunch with Joy! She’s celebrating her first blog birthday, and sharing this gorgeous Strawberry Moscato Slush with us. Don’t forget to check out her awesome giveaway from BlendTec, at the bottom of this post!
Today I am so happy to introduce you to my friend Linda. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Linda at my first ever food-blogger conference, IFBC ’13 in Seattle, Washington. She is one of the sweetest gals I know and super-talented to boot.
One year ago this week, she started Brunch with Joy, and she’s been rocking it ever since. I’m so grateful to her for sharing this lovely cocktail with us today!
And, she’s bringing us the most amazing giveaway too! I have a BlendTec blender in my own kitchen, and I can’t say enough great things about it. It’s so super-powerful and I love how silky-smooth and airy it makes things. I use it for everything from smoothies to soups, it’s such a great tool for cooks!
So, with that, I’m going to turn things over to Linda so she can fill you in on all the details. Take it away, Linda!
Thanks for having me here, Allie, and hello to all Baking A Moment readers.
I’m Linda from Brunch with Joy and I’m a sweet tooth person, especially when it comes to chocolate!
The weather has been a bit gloomy lately but that doesn’t stop my excitement knowing that Summer is just around the corner.
I love Spring when the flowers started to bloom and everything looks so pretty. Spring also marks the beginning of the BBQ Season, which, in our family, normally happens on Memorial Day. This year’s BBQ is going to be a fantastic one because we just finished decorating our backyard and we’re looking forward to grill all Summer long.
Aside from pinning and planning BBQ menus on Pinterest, I’ve been daydreaming about slushy ice. This Strawberry Moscato Slushy is perfect for any kind of gatherings. They are fresh, colorful, and easy to make. I use Red Moscato because it has sweet citrus and peach flavors, plus its vibrant color that is perfect for outdoor fun!
Today is also a fun day because Blendtec is here to celebrate my blogiversary and not only that… I have my favorite bloggers and dear friends to celebrate my anniversary with this giveaway. Check out the Crispy-Skinned Salmon with Creamy Cashew recipe at Hip Foodie Mom blog and the Creamy Mushroom Soup at Life Made Sweeter blog.
