Posted on September 10, 2016

Where do I even begin? So much has been going on around here that sometimes I feel like I’m running around with my head about to fall off. Normal? We wrapped up the summer with my sister’s amazing wedding (it was SO much fun and she was GORGEOUS), a couple of birthday celebrations for me…

Vanilla Ice Cream with Salty Candied Peanuts and Dark Chocolate

Posted on September 1, 2016

Super creamy no churn vanilla ice cream with salty candied peanuts and dark chocolate chunks. I had to share just one more ice cream recipe with you before summer is (unofficially) over. Truth be told, I made this ice cream almost two months ago, and ate it so quickly I almost forgot about it. Don’t…

Things are continuing to be crazy but exciting here! The house renovation is underway (see the demo photos below) and Matt and I are working our way through all of the details and decisions that wan to be made.

This summer is just crazy. One day we are kicking off my sister’s wedding festivities and the next we are buying a house. It feels like we’ve been running around since then and now we are about to start the big house renovation (!!!!!) and my sister’s wedding is this month. What a summer! Even…

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream

Posted on August 1, 2016

Rich and creamy no-churn peanut butter ice cream with swirls of milk chocolate and peanut butter. Part of me wants to apologize for the fact that all I want to make and eat is ice cream. I can’t even blame pregnancy or breastfeeding for this summer’s obsession. But you know what? No churn ice cream…

Blueberry Cake with Vanilla Bean Glaze

This fresh blueberry bundt cake with a sweet vanilla bean glaze might be the highlight of your summer desserts! I’ve been so busy making ice cream this summer (seriously, it’s almost embarrassing how much ice cream I’ve made and eaten) that I forgot how much I like to actually bake, you know, with an oven.…

Rich chocolate ice cream full of dark chocolate chunks; no churn ice cream for the chocolate lover! Anyone who has raised a toddler knows that meal time can go in any direction. On a good day, your child will happily eat everything on his or her plate. On a bad day, a child yelling “no…

Brownie Krispie Treats

Posted on July 7, 2016

Thick, chewy rice krispie treats “glued” to a fudgy brownie base with a layer of marshmallow fluff! A few weeks ago, my mom and I hosted my sister’s bridal shower. Leading up to the party, my mom and I (and actually, my dad, too) spent hours and hours brainstorming, theme planning, cooking, baking, decorating and…

There is big news to share today!!! We bought a house! Finally homeowners! Picnic dinner in the new house. Our own outdoor space! After three months under contract, we finally closed. I’ve been dying to share the news, but I was so nervous that something would fall through that I didn’t want to say anything…

No churn graham cracker ice cream with rich milk chocolate chunks. I’m here! Our internet is fixed, I survived my sister’s bachelorette party (I came back in almost one piece), and I have so many recipes piling up and ready to be shared. There are a few that I’m quite in love with, but since…
