There are so many things I love about my job, but without a doubt one of my favorites has to be recipe testing. From delicious desserts to the most delectable homemade pasta dish, I feel pretty lucky that I get to make, bake, and taste so many amazing dishes, all in the quest for the next sharable recipe. For that reason, I was extremely excited to team up with my friend Tieghan Gerard of Half Baked Harvest to share her two of her go-to summer recipes. My Little Market co-founder Hannah and I were lucky enough to spend the afternoon with Tieghan while she showed us how to whip up a Paloma Mocktail and Mexican Street Corn Salad. We styled everything on beautiful pieces from The Little Market, and had the best time learning from Tieghan’s extensive culinary skills… and we captured it all on video! Give it a watch below, and then keep scrolling for the full Paloma recipe, featuring the prettiest handblown glasses from The Little Market.
