Grand Finale

The Grand Finale

1. Add 1 oz of brown sugar to a tall glass and mix with 6 oz of hot water.
Slowly pour 1-1/2 oz of Grand Marnier into the hot liquid and add at least three orange twists (more if desired).

2. Muddle the orange twists with the back of a long spoon to release the oil and essence from the orange peel.

3. Then top with a generous helping of whipped cream and grated cinnamon. It is ideal for serving at the end of the evening or as an apr├Ęs-ski delight.

Spinach Pie Bites


What You Will Need:
300g package of frozen spinach, defrosted
1 egg white
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 cup crumbled Feta Cheese
4 sheets phyllo pastry
2-4 tbsp olive oil

  1. Arrange racks at top and bottom thirds of oven. Preheat oven to 375F. Squeeze out liquid from spinach. Pat with kitchen or paper towel until very dry. In a medium bowl, whisk egg white. Add chives and nutmeg, and whisk until evenly mixed. Add spinach and feta. Stir to mix.
  2. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo on the counter. (Cover remaining sheets with a dampened kitchen or paper towel until ready to use.) Cut phyllo on counter lengthwise into 4 strips. Brush with olive oil.
  3. Mound scant 2 tbsp spinach mixture on corner of 1 phyllo strip (see diagram). Fold corner diagonally across phyllo to cover filling. Press around filling, forming a triangle. Continue folding diagonally, as shown, working toward the end of the strip, maintaining triangular shape. Tuck in loose ends. Lightly brush top with oil. Place on greased baking sheet. Continue with remaining ingredients, creating 16 triangles and arranging on 2 large baking sheets.
  4. Place baking sheets on top and bottom racks of oven, and bake until pies are golden around edges and lightly golden on top, about 12 min, switching position of baking sheets halfway through. Cool slightly before serving, at least 5 to 10 min.

Local Gem.......

IA client of ours desperately wanted to use Jayna Marie, however she was fully booked on her day. Hearing all about her, we took it upon ourselves to see why our client was so intrigued. We know why now; and after searching for our own words to describe this beauties business and talent we decided ours were  comparable to those on her website.  
Why mess with a good thing.....let her words intrigue& inspire you too!

Jayna strives to find a healthy balance between professionalism, fun and creativity. She believes that being successful is based 50% on talent and 50% on personality...which is why you’ll always find her with a smile on her face. If you ask her for one piece of beauty advice,
 Jayna says “Dont be afraid of trying something new...
its only makeup, not a tattoo!!”
