Vegan Grilled Veggie Pizza

Yesterday was the 1st day of summer! I celebrated it by giving my picnic table a fresh coat of paint and making this pizza! (And staying in bed until 1 with a headache because of too many grapefruit fizz drinks and summer beers, but whatev.) So I grilled up a bunch of veggies in my fridge, while the dough rose. I ate this while watching Orange is the New Black because well, this season is…

Sour Cherry Fro-Yo Ice Pops

I’m really excited about these. Almost as excited as I was on Friday when I won 100 tickets at the arcade. Almost as excited as when I won a Hip Hop Banana stuffed toy thing-y from that claw game that it’s impossible to win at. Way more excited than the personality test that said I as both jealous and uncontrollable. (Rude!) And I guess, pretty much on par with the excitement I feel towards trading…

Roasted Strawberry Ice Pops

The other day I popped into the zombie grocery store (if you went there you’d totally understand) and bought 2 lbs of strawberries because they were somehow $4? And (real talk) I’ve been the worst at letting fruit go bad lately. Herbs get wrankled and black in my tundra-fridge and I’ve been losing cheese in the back and forgetting about heavy cream. So, I had to get my life together and use up these berries…

Vanilla Bean Lemon Bars

Once, my friend Jessica brought me vanilla bean lemonade! And last week Cindy made Vanilla Mint Lemonade Pops,┬áso the truth is vanilla bean and lemons are just meant to be! And I just love the speckles in these bars. I kinda want a dress in the exact pattern, ya know? The truth is, the vanilla is super subtle in these guys, but don’t let that stop you. These guys could win a contest based on…

Moscow Mule

This┬ásong makes me dance, this picture makes me happy, this dude makes me swoon, and this drink reminds me of going to New York, and Christmas Eve and Green Dot Stables. I love it! And there’s something so special about drinking this out of a copper mug. And there’s something even more special about making your own ginger beer. And well, I’d like to whip these up and cheers with a hottie! I’d like to…

Happy Thanksgiving + Bling Cookies

Happy Thanksgiving, you guys! I’m thankful for each and every one of you! It’s just the truth! I’m also thankful for puppies, avocados, lobster rolls, honey pies, late-night adventure dinners, beers that taste like ice cream, root beer floats, and bling-bling gold sugar cookies. I’m thankful for super-model dough f’sho, cookie letters, cookie-cutters with handles, rolling pins with red handles, and big huge baking trays. I’m thankful for breakfast dates with my dad, and how…

Picnic Time (Focaccia Sandwich + Salads)

It’s totally spummer out. (Ya know, that season that’s right between spring and summer.) One day it’s 87 and the next day it’s 65. This weather is cray. But on the ideal spummer day it’s good to have picnic fixings on the ready! You see, this day would be about 75 and sunny, and it wouldn’t rain as soon as you sat on your picnic blanket, and you sure wouldn’t cut your thumb on the…

Black & White Cookie Cake (revisited)

Because cookies can be cake can be cookies. And did you know there’s lemon in the white side of the frosting? And EVEN some in the chocolate side? It makes the icing taste perfectly complex and like a dream. This cake sliced WAY prettier the next day. No crumb-y bits happened then. Oh, well. Girl needed cake! And you know what the best part of this cake is?! You get some black and some white…
