Tomato Basil Goat Cheese Crostini

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”

Watermelon Ginger Aperol Spritz

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.

Salted Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

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”

White Claw Slushies

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”

Browned Butter Maple Banana Bread

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”

Pink Lemon Collins Cocktail

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”

Frozen Lavender Blueberry Mini Pies

Prepare yourself for a whole bunch of new lavender recipes here. I finally got my hands on dried culinary grade lavender and have been testing out lots of ideas. Today I bring you a frozen blueberry treat that has a hint of lavender and a whole lot of deliciousness. These mini pies use my favorite,Continue reading “Frozen Lavender Blueberry Mini Pies”

Spicy Watermelon Margarita

Anyone else feel like all the days are running together lately? I’ve mixed up Wednesdays with Mondays and Fridays with Tuesdays. And when telling a story everything happened “last week” when it actually happened in March. Truly, there is no rhyme or reason. I’ve found the easiest way to distinguish the first half of theContinue reading “Spicy Watermelon Margarita”

Chai Blueberry Muffins

Is there anything better than an iced chai latte on a sunny spring day? I’m definitely craving one right now, but I guess I will “settle” for one of these muffins instead. I love chai so much (as noted here and here), so a chai infused muffin felt very on brand. The husband heard myContinue reading “Chai Blueberry Muffins”
