I’m drooling just thinking about this crostini. It’s the perfect quick (but fancy) appetizer to truly impress your friends. The combination of toasty, sweet and cheesy is like a party in your mouth. Not gonna lie, I could eat the whipped ricotta by the spoonful. Seriously… Plus there’s something special about grilled bread instead ofContinue reading “Peach Honey Whipped Ricotta Crostini”
Hope you’re feeling rested and recharged after a short work week. It’s cloudy and rainy in Chicago today, but I’m not mad about it. I’m always a little more productive on gloomy days, I don’t know why. Speaking of productive…I found another use for my *famous* Lavender Simple Syrup. And it’s a winner. This LavenderContinue reading “Lavender Arnold Palmer Cocktail”
S’mores are the ultimate summer dessert (right next to apple pie and ice cream sandwiches, of course). I live in a high rise in Chicago, so bonfires are a little hard to come by. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean toasted s’mores are out of the question (thank you, trusty kitchen torch!). I was thinkingContinue reading “Raspberry Dark Chocolate S’mores Bars”
I bought a bunch of peaches to make a grilled peach chicken salad that looked delicious. Really, it does. But then dinnertime rolled around and the idea of 1. cooking and 2. eating a salad seemed like a horrible decision. All I wanted to do was sit in the sun and finish my book clubContinue reading “Peach Thyme Bourbon Smash”
Are these poptarts or hand pies? …or mini pies? Honestly, I’m not entirely sure. Is there an official definition of a poptart somewhere? For now I’ll stick with calling them poptarts. But just know that whatever you decide to call them…they are delicious. These “poptarts” are made with my favorite all-butter pie crust and filledContinue reading “Homemade Strawberry Basil Poptarts”
Happy Friday, friends. I hope you had a lovely week and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend…maybe with this cocktail (or two). A French 75 combines some of my favorite things: gin and champagne. I am very in to gin and tonics lately, and there is something so lovely about popping a bottle ofContinue reading “Lavender French 75 Cocktail”
Living in 2020 has really upped my cocktail game (and ignited my inner wannabe mixologist). My happy hours very quickly went from trendy cocktail bars to leggings on the couch. So naturally I made the couch my very own trendy cocktail bar. Without a doubt I have made more cocktails in the past 4 monthsContinue reading “Lavender Simple Syrup”
I made salted dark chocolate chunk cookies a few weeks ago and have been dreaming about baking them again. I said it then and I’ll say it again: anything with a salty/sweet combo is unquestionably delicious. But this time we’re adding ice cream! It has been HOT in Chicago lately. Not that I’m complaining. I’mContinue reading “Dark Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches”
This cocktail is exactly my mood right now…bright, bubbly and screaming *summer*! It’s July, it’s Friday, it’s a long weekend and I’ve got a fresh Strawberry Tequila Soda in my hands…I have literally zero complaints. To make a great day even better, I’m about to take one of these outside with a book and baskContinue reading “Strawberry Tequila Soda”
I love anything on crusty toasty bread: crostini, toast, bruschetta…or any other variation. Ricotta cheese spread on toasted ciabatta, tomatoes on crunchy french bread, something with a little honey drizzle or sliced strawberries. Yes, please. This combination in particular is my all time favorite appetizer. If I’m being honest, I have 100% had these asContinue reading “Tomato Basil Goat Cheese Crostini”
I had my very first Aperol Spritz in Italy three years ago and my life has forever been changed. Not to be dramatic or anything. We saw this bright orange drink as the happy hour special all over Florence and were very intrigued. We learned that it’s a common apertif in Italy…and is absolutely delicious.
I have always loved a salty sweet combo: PB&J, caramel popcorn, chicken and waffles. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. So these salty sweet cookies really hit the spot. The dark chocolate chunk cookies would probably be pretty darn good on their own, but add the flaky sea salt and *boom* it takesContinue reading “Salted Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies”
Have you seen this trend popping up too? I think we’re all so bored with ourselves and have nothing else to do but try out random concoctions. See: pancake cereal and whipped iced coffee. But truthfully, what could be bad about a White Claw slushie? Let me tell you…absolutely nothing. It’s glorious. Refreshing, ice cold,Continue reading “White Claw Slushies”
Let’s be honest. You have probably made at least two loaves of banana bread since March. For whatever reason we think we’re going to consume massive amounts of bananas in a week and then end up with seven overripe bananas by Wednesday. To make matters worse, if you’re like me you definitely don’t learn yourContinue reading “Browned Butter Maple Banana Bread”
My husband and I have been trying out meal delivery kits for a few months now. With being home all day and having to cook so many meals, it’s been nice to have someone else tell us what to make. I honestly was super skeptical about it but have surprisingly enjoyed trying new recipes thatContinue reading “Pink Lemon Collins Cocktail”
