Happy National Ice Cream month! Of course, you’ve been waiting for me to acknowledge this important holiday season and yes, I, too, have been anxious to reveal my love of the season. The wait is over! I’ve teamed up with Kandyce Carroll of Ramblin Rose Cafe to bring you 4 delicious, healthy, botanical-inspired ice cream recipes that will bring a smile to your face and a satisfaction in your belly.
First up, strawberry rose sorbet. Though not technically a “cream” it’s most certainly icy so I shall include it.
Leave it to me to work last minute up to the holiday. You’re probably gone for the weekend and not even checking in on blogs. Awesome. We just had so much fun making projects that we couldn’t help ourselves! Last week we had a pre 4th of July picnic and had a blast. We brought tunes, some food, and drinks and enjoyed ourselves at the local park. I’ve already shown you a few of our projects but here are some other details that might help in your last minute preparations. (BTW: check out our video!)
No American celebration is complete without some lemonade and this is one of my favorite brands. We got ours from the local shop, Pop ‘n Sweets, but find out where you can get some near you here.
ME made a delicious pop rock cake and topped it off when sparklers. Guys, I am SO on sugar these days. I mean, how could I not?! And we carried the cake with our new handy dandy cake box from Pie Box which even comes with a nifty leather handle, perfect for bike riding! It even fits in cupcakes. It’s perfect.
If there’s one thing I learned in Brazil it’s that they love bolo, or cake. There’s a bolo for every occasion and they do it right! They use all the fruits of the area along with lots of delicious sweeteners. These Brazilian coconut bars, or bolo toalha felpuda, are deliciously dense and oh so sweet. Try it out for one of your World Cup parties.
So much food going on on the blog these days! Don’t worry, I still craft. To continue our celebration of the World Cup, I’ve collaborate with Karlee and Laura to bring you some delicious refreshers. Today it’s a pineapple juice that’s oh so delish. Brazilians LOVE their sucos (juices). In fact, my favorite one is an avocado juice. mmmmmm.
