Today, I’m teaming up with a fabulous group of bloggers to throw a virtual baby shower for the hilarious, kind and super talented Amber from Bluebonnets & Brownies. Amber and her husband will be welcoming their sweet baby boy in October. I’m so happy for them and was thrilled to be part of her Texas themed baby shower.
I first met Amber through our work over on Food Fanatic, but since then, I’ve had the pleasure to get to know her further and now I’m happy to be able to call her my friend.
Amber was born and raised in Texas, so the entire theme of her shower is awesome Texas food! To be honest, I was nervous about the idea of creating a ‘Texas’ dish for Amber, knowing that she lives and breathes Texas – in addition to the fact that I have lived my entire life in Ohio.
In some ways, I think I picked the riskiest (although delicious!) recipe out there for this shower – Peach Iced Tea for a Texas girl whose husband is British. Yeah. Major room for error here. But hopefully, for what that this tea lacks in authenticity, it makes up for in flavor.
This Peach Iced Tea is sweet and full of fresh peach goodness. Served ice cold, it’s perfect for a hot summer day; particularly a hot Texas summer day. Don’t worry, I made a glass of decaf for you, Amber!
