Food Porn Friday

Happy Friday Darlings!  Doesn't this cake just look like a summer vacation?  The weather we've been having here in California sure feels like it at least.  This weekend we're having more family in town which means roast chicken, grilled artichokes, and lots of bubbles!  What are your plans this weekend?

Weekend Cocktail: Blackberry Thyme Sparkler

Darlings, the weekend is quickly approaching and I am ready for a cocktail!  We're having a BBQ this Saturday and I thought that this blackberry thyme sparkler sounded like the perfect thing to sip on our sunny patio.  You know how much I love champagne and adding gin and homemade blackberry syrup sounds delightful.  Cheers!

Peony Season

Happy Wednesday Darlings!  Two things I'm thankful for today, it's Wednesday already and peonies are in season.  We have company coming into town this weekend which means that this week I'll be headed to Trader Joes and picking up a few bundles of beautiful sweet peonies.  Which are your favorite seasonal flowers?

Food Porn Friday

Happiest of happy Fridays Darlings!  Doesn't this Swedish candy look like a fairy tale? Perfect for a warm almost-summer evening which is what we're having here on the California coast.  The past week has been 90 degree days and warm evenings in the garden with glasses of white wine.  There are just times when you have to skip your workout and take advantage of the weather while you have it. 

How have your weeks been, any big weekend plans?  I have an uncle visiting from Scottland so we'll be catching up and having a few pints with the faimly.  Hope you all have fantastic Fridays and relaxing weekends!

Food Porn Friday

Happy Friday!  Can you believe Friday is here already?  I just had to share these lovely cookies that Chrissy featured on The Perfect Palette last week.  They make me want to get in the kitchen and bake all day.  

What are you all up to this weekend?  I'll be drinking wine with friends, cleaning the house, and hopefully walking the "Color Run" on Saturday.  Have a wonderful weekend darlings!
