Well, after last week’s events, I don’t feel like I have anything very exciting to share, but it really was a good week here! It was our third wedding anniversary on Wednesday and since Matt was travelling, we celebrated yesterday afternoon. The day involved a hike, pizza, champagne and ice cream. It doesn’t get much better than that. Today I’m heading to Philly to celebrate Father’s Day with my family. We are going to the brand new Barnes Museum. I’ll either love it or be ready for a snack/to go to the bathroom/sit down as soon as we start. I get my museum appreciation from Mom.
I think this is the first Father’s Day where I really appreciate how lucky I am. This past year, a couple of my close friends lost their dads too early. I can’t imagine how hard it is for them on a daily basis, let alone on Father’s Day. It makes me appreciate the fact that my dad is around to lend advice on pretty much every.single.topic, talk about anything going on in life, and even annoy me over the dumbest things. Thanks for all of that, Dad!
As for Keep It Sweet Desserts, things are good and busy here! Yesterday I delivered a really fun spread of desserts for a bridal shower. There was a beach theme going on so the menu alluded to that a bit: Margarita Cupcakes (my favorite!), “At-the-Beach” Cupcakes, Strawberry Shortcake Blondies, S’mores Cookies and Black and White Blondies for good measure. I’m hoping to get some pictures from the shower to share!
This week I’m actually going to be doing a few in-person interviews for my first ever hire! The day has finally come (well, it came a while ago but I held off as long as possible) and I am so excited. I’ve actually found a ton of great candidates so it is going to be hard narrowing them down. Hopefully I’ll be able to hire a few of them when it comes time for the crazy holiday season.
And as always, here are some highlights from the past week:
Most popular product: Cookie of the Month Club
Current seasonal specials: White Chocolate Pistachio Fudge Cookies for Father’s Day (last day!), the Gourmet Graduation Gift Basket and S’mores Cookies
Most popular recipe/blog post: Big, Chewy, Sweet and Salty Peanut Butter Cookies
Three favorite things I pinned all week:
Strawberry Grapefruit Margarita from Thug Kitchen
Cheerios Cake from I Am Baker (EVERYONE should read this post)
Homemade Drumsticks from Baking Bites
I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend
