Trendy restaurants, bubbling hot springs, shopping on Palm Canyon Drive – Palm Springs truly is a fantastic spot for a girl’s getaway. But my girls getaway didn’t include any of that! Instead, we just wanted to relax in a beautiful place without a to-do list. When’s that’s the case, you can’t beat renting a vacation home, like this one we got through Vacation Palm Springs.
I love to cook. So while our private pool was definitely a plus, what I liked most was having a full kitchen at my disposal. Knives, cutting boards, blenders, etc. – we had everything to make preparing meals and snacks a breeze. In fact, the first night we even threw a “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Party complete with a delicious antipasto plate and mocktails! I highly recommend it and wanted to share the other easy recipes I prepared during our stay in this beautiful place:
For the Perfect Antipasto Plate, collect a variety of cheese, meat, crackers, pretzels, fresh fruits and pickles. I listed a few of my favorites below:
- Pretzel Crips
- Munster Cheese
- Cheese Spreads
- Pita Crackers
A Veggie Frittata is perfect for brunch and couldn’t be easier:
- 8 whole eggs
- 1/2 c diced onions
- 1/2 c milk
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- Use any combo of fresh veggies & cheese we used
- 1/2 c chopped mushrooms
- 1/2 c chopped red peppers
- 1/2 c chopped broccoli
- 2 cups cheese
Heat a little olive oil or butter and cook onions thoroughly.
Whisk eggs, milk salt & pepper.
Mix veggies & cheese into egg and onion mixture.
Pour mixture into skillet and cook until edges pull away from edge (we improvised and used a baking dish!)
Place skillet into oven and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
We enjoyed the Banana Berry Protein Smoothies as a pool-side snack:
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 banana
- 1/2 c plain greek yogurt
- 1 c almond milk
Blend, and enjoy!
