Taco Bar

Taco Bar Party Inspiration 

Who doesn't love taco's?  If you want your friends to RSVP YES the moment they receive your invitation invite them to a taco party. 

ok, so this first photo isn't the best, I know. The flash came on when I took this shot and my friends had just arrived.  I could have told my friends to wait and retaken the shot or started having fun hanging out with my friends. As you can see, I chose my friends. 

I love using the mylar letter balloons for parties.  You don't need helium for them. Just blow them up like you would a beach ball. And they're FUN!

 I love these cactus glasses. They're so fun and perfect for your taco party.

I want to thank my friend, Suddenly Surrounded by Taxidermy.  She sent me these mini pie dishes for my birthday and they were perfect for holding the taco toppings. Chipotle salsa, regular salsa, cilantro, sour cream and onions.

It's just not a taco party without some tasty guac.  One of my favorite recipes is from Rick Bayless.  It has sundried tomato's and serrano peppers in it. The sundried tomato's add some sweetness and the serrano's bring the heat. As you can see, I'm not so good at taking pics of guac either.  But if you like guac you need to make this recipe because it's delish!

Bakery Review- Depoe Baykery

Bakery Review - Depoe Baykery 
Depoe Bay, Oregon 

Depoe Bay, Oregon. Oregon coast

We finally stopped at Depoe Baykery  in Depoe Bay, Oregon. I've been meaning to stop here for years but every time we go by it's after hours.  This time when we drove by they were open. Woo! And they were buuuusy.  The parking lot was full and there was a line almost out the door. We must have hit the morning rush.  Everyone seemed to know what they wanted though so the line went quick. 

Review of Depoe Baykery in Depoe Bay, Oregon

I picked the Marionberry filled donut to try.  I'm not a big donut girl, I'm more of a cupcake girl. But there were no cupcakes. Boo hoo 😢

The donut had a nice light glaze, wasn't greasy and felt light and fluffy.

The donut had a generous amount of filling and wasn't too sweet. The donut was light and fluffy and didn't sit in your gut like some filled donuts can.

I also tried the Oregon Joy cookie.  This was a chocolate coconut macaroon.  I didn't like the chocolate.  If you've been following me for awhile this won't be a surprise to you because you know I'm not a big fan of chocolate.  If you like chocolate you'll probably like it. The coconut part was moist and perfectly coconutty.

I'll definitely stop in again when I go to Depoe Bay.  The eclairs looked good and I'd like to try the coconut macaroon without the chocolate. 

If you're a donut lover this bakery is worth a stop.

Delectable Baked Goods Bakery Shop

Delectable Baked Goods Bake Shop

I'm SO excited!!!  My friend Delectable Baked Goods just opened her bake shop in Beaverton, Oregon.  Excuse the fuzzyish pictures. I don't know what happened with my camera. 

As soon as I got off work yesterday I HAD to stop by and support my friend at her bake shop.  I was excited to hear that they'll be open later hours for those of us who like to pick up a cupcake, cake or cookies after work.

Not only can you pick up baked goods you can pick up other party supplies like cards, baking cups, sprinkles and mugs.

There were so many pretty sprinkles. If I didn't already have a ton I would have bought some.

It was great to see so many cupcakes available at 6:00 pm when I stopped by. And the best thing, they were fresh and moist.  I've stopped by bakeries later in the day before and the cupcakes are dry because they've been sitting there all day.  Since Delectable Baked Goods is open later their cupcakes will be always be fresh later in the day. Love that. 

Cupcakes at Decadent Creations

I picked up chocolate raspberry cupcakes.  One for me and two to share.  They were so pretty and spring looking with their pink frosting.

And yes, they were tasty.  Moist cake and the raspberry frosting tasted like spring. Delectable Baked Goods uses the freshest ingredients so you'll never get that fake flavor taste.
