I mean who doesn’t love fireworks, swimming, BBQs, homemade ice cream, and more fireworks all on the same day?! I have very fond memories of spending the 4th of July at my grandma’s house as a kid. Each year we’d always have an…

No Churn Creamy Coconut Ice Cream

Where in the world did this whirlwind weekend go? Like really though… First off, Jacob’s (26th!) birthday was on Friday and we celebrated by enjoying a delicious breakfast of homemade crepes and then hitting up Texas Roadhouse that evening. Gotta love those rolls and cinnamon butter! On top of that, we decided to try out a new hike, which was seriously breathtaking. Jacob and I have made a goal…

Chocolate Drizzled Coconut Macaroons

It has been so cold here lately! I think we got over 6 inches of snow yesterday, with more in the forecast. The weather seriously has me dreaming of warm summer days spent by the pool. Personally, I think one of the best ways to combat the winter weather is to warm up my apartment with some fresh baked cookies. And what better way to…

Fall is officially in full swing here in Utah! I’ve celebrated by buying a new scarf and boots, and I might’ve put all of my Halloween decorations out too… I’ll admit, I’ve been in denial about the cold weather hitting, I love the warm weather a little too much (pool party anyone?).

Rich Chocolate Eclairs

Well, I tried making macarons, 3 times I might add, and they just would not work out. Recipe fails are so frustrating. The dang things either turned out flat or burned, so I guess it’s back to the drawing board for me on that recipe (any tips would be much appreciated).

Vanilla Custard

Custard is a well-known treat throughout much of Europe. Whether served with pies and crisps, used as a pastry filling, eaten with fruit or on its own, custard is enjoyed all throughout European countries! My first time trying true cooked custard was when I visited England. Jacob and I went to dinner at one of his friend’s houses where we had a full English roast with…

Jacob, when he lived in England, absolutely loved this dessert and I guess there’s a good reason why! Layers of vanilla pudding, whipped cream, strawberries and cake drenched in strawberry jam…

Apricot Thumbprint Cookies

Today’s recipe was inspired by my recent trip to Italy, specifically Florence. Florence was a beautiful, charming city and is the birthplace of the Renaissance. The city was home to masterpieces of art and architecture, including the famous statue of David and the beautiful cathedral of Il Duomo. If you are any art/architecture enthusiast, this is one city you wouldn’t want to miss!…
