Strawberry Sour Cream Streusel Cake

Try as I might, I just can’t seem to motivate myself to bake anything that doesn’t involve strawberries this Spring. Strawberries are definitely the belle of the ball at the grocery store right now, and we are devouring as many cartons as we possibly can – with Greek yogurt for breakfast, plain for snackin’, all up in our banana bread. I think I’m officially obsessed.


Coconut Mango White Chocolate Scones

Happy no-work Monday! Three-day weekends are just the best. The weather has been fully cooperating this Memorial Day weekend in the Bay Area – it has been straight up SUMMERY around here. (And not Bay Area-style gray and gloomy summery either – real, sunny, mid-80’s summery!) I’m feelin’ like this summer is going to be the best ever, so I am ready to bring. It. On.


Kale Pesto Quinoa Bowls

I’m baaaaaack! Four days later, I’m still recovering from the most incredible weekend filled with champagne, guacamole, and Jell-O shots (hey, I never said it would be classy, okay?). Needless to say, I’m in major detox mode this week! Not detox as in not-eating-food-and-drinking-only-juice (who do you think I am??) but more like detox as in filling-my-belly-with-things-that-are-happy-and-healthy. Just like these incredible kale pesto quinoa bowls!


Date Milkshakes

Five days from today, nine of my very best girlfriends and I will be descending upon the gorgeous desert town of Palm Springs, CA for a weekend of pool time, floppy hats, and irresponsible amounts of champagne. It’s my bachelorette party, ya’ll!!

I have been looking forward to this weekend ever since Brad and I got engaged. How often do I get to hang out with my best friends all at once for an ENTIRE weekend?! I absolutely can’t wait for a weekend of boozing and eating and lounging with my ladies, so I had to make something to celebrate this momentous occasion: date milkshakes!
