Classic Blueberry Pie + A First Birthday Party!

Recently my little guy turned ONE! I'm still kind of in shock over the whole situation... but I knew we had to throw an amazing first birthday party regardless. Liam LOVES blueberries.

So for his first birthday I figured it would only be appropriate to throw him a blueberry inspired Birthday party. The lovely ladies...

Chocolate Banana Bread Cake

Banana bread cake treated like a layer cake had been dancing around my mind for a while now. For some reason I wanted to turn a well known homey treat into a birthday extravaganza. I figured dulce di leche would be a great addition and that a layer of chocolate ganache would pull it all together in true birthday fashion. I am happy to report that it turned out to the be a very decadent and surprising birthday surprise.

Today I'm excited to share a fabulous Friday cocktail recipe for Asian Pear & Ginger Sparklers. Not only is this drink fresh and delicious, it's also an excuse for me to gush endlessly about my love for the Asian Pear.

Black Currant & Raspberry Sorbet

Leave it to Have a Yummy Day to leave my mouth watering and my jaw totally agape. Black currant and raspberries play nice in this scrumptious treat. Truth be told, I'd typically choose ice cream over sorbet. But when the results are this delicious looking, all bets are off. I'm on team sorbet all the way!

10 Ways to Eat Watermelon

A few days ago, I headed out on my lunch break to pick up an iced coffee. Much to my dismay, it was absolutely freezing (and by freezing I mean so. not. summery). There was an undeniable crispness in the air that simply couldn't be denied. Fall is on it's way, and I'm just not ready. Lucky, there are still a few summer weeks left , and I plan on taking advantage (starting with all of these watermelon recipes): PS - ...

And let’s face it, during the hot summer months, what grown-up kid at heart wouldn’t want to indulge in a boozy ice cream...
