Let’s Entertain! Fun and Easy Party Recipes

Tuesday, December 02, 2014 | COLUMN: Recipes

If you ask us, one of the best parts of the holiday season is all the celebrating and festive occasions. Office parties, meeting friends for holiday cocktails, going to and throwing your own party, there’s never a shortage of things to do during the holiday season.

If you’re going to a party, it’s always nice to bring something along to share, and if you are hosting a party, you should expect hungry guests. As a Southern brand, there’s nothing we love more than feeding people with our homemade baked goods and other dishes, and today we want to share with you some of our favorite fun holiday recipes.

We’re all in on the pumpkin-everything trend lately, and we love this quick and easy party recipe for pumpkin bread from Southern Living. It ups the ante by adding pecans, is a quick and easy recipe and is always a crowd pleaser. Another Southern favorite we love to bake on chilly days or for easy dessert is straight from the Southern cooking queen herself, Paula Deen. Check out her orange banana bread, which can also be easily made into muffins.

When hosting a party, we love to serve plenty of appetizers and finger foods that guests can nibble on throughout the evening. Some of our favorite easy appetizers for parties include tortellini and caprese skewers and dates stuffed with goat cheese and chorizo. Both are simple, easy recipes that can even be made in advance, and the skewers are great to include as a vegetarian option.

For the tortellini and caprese skewers, simply cook the tortellini following the instructions on the package, then rinse them under cold water so they are easy to handle. Next, slide them onto a skewer along with a grape tomato and a fresh mozzarella cheese ball – add a second round of everything if the skewers are long. We place them on a platter, sprinkle a little chopped basil, salt and pepper on top, then drizzle balsamic glaze over all of them.

To create the stuffed dates, sauté bulk chorizo sausage (casing removed) until it’s cooked through. Then, slice your date down the middle, but not in half. Spoon in a little bit of goat cheese and chorizo. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, wrap the date with cooked bacon or prosciutto and secure with a toothpick. You can serve them as-is, or pop them in the oven for 15-20 minutes to get them nice and warm.

Looking for more cooking inspiration and fun holiday recipes? When we’re planning a party or holiday menu, we do a lot of browsing on Pinterest (okay, we admit it, we do a lot of browsing on Pinterest no matter what) and food sites like Food Network, Allrecipes.com and of course, Southern Living. Plenty of magazines and bloggers also feature party and recipe tips and tricks, too.

How to Clean your Pür Minerals Makeup Brushes

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 | COLUMNS: Makeup, Tips & How-Tos

Did you know that cleaning your makeup brushes regularly is a must-do activity for all, no matter how often you use them? Keeping the brushes that touch your face clean can help keep bacteria and breakouts at bay. Here’s how we recommend doing it:

 

Step 1: Rinse brushes under lukewarm, running water
Step 2: Gently swirl in a bowl filled with water and a squirt of shampoo or cleanser
Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 until running water runs clear
Step 4: Use a cloth to remove excess water and reshape the bristles
Step 5: Lay flat on a cloth to dry

Take the EMpowered Holiday Health Challenge

Monday, November 24, 2014 | COLUMNS: Things We Love, Tips & How-Tos

By EMpowered founder and head trainer Emily Cook Harris

The holidays are notoriously the most unhealthy, stressful time of the year; but I believe that we can do better than that! This year, I created the EMpowered Holiday Health Challenge: four weeks of accountability in your nutrition and exercise (plus some other fun surprises to make your season bright.) No, it’s NOT a diet; it’s NOT a competition. It’s a healthy way of life that focuses on movement, clean eating, taking deep breaths and doing some good in the world. And it’s 100% FREE! The only requirement is that you complete the challenge with a friend—because everything is better when you are surrounded by people you love. So grab your mom, dad, friend, sister, husband, neighbor, boyfriend or roommate and get to it!

 

Click here to join the Facebook Group and download all the free goodies: EMpowered Holiday Challenge 2014

 

It’s my holiday gift to you! I want you to feel strong, confident and empowered now until Christmas, ending 2014 with a bang and setting yourself up for success in 2015! EMpowered is here to help you have the best holiday season yet!

 

Xoxo,

We’ve all been there. It’s halfway through winter and you’re wondering why your skin is so itchy and feeling so tight.
