Before popsicle shops were popping up (pun intended) everywhere, it was this cool (pun not intended), novel, genius idea. My husband and I were in Nashville and a friend recommended Las Paletas, a popsicle shop. I was kind of confused, and super intrigued. I mean, popsicles are basically frozen juice, right?! So we’re going to pay a few dollars for some frozen juice at a shop when we could get a whole box for the same price as the store?
It’s (once again) been a while since I’ve given you a new recipe, so I’m coming back strong with an easy, no-bake recipe: Unicorn Pie! Kellogg’s makes a vanilla cupcake flavored cereal that they call Unicorn cereal. It is a limited edition flavor, and as far as I knew, it was only available at the Kellogg’s store in New York. Then one day, I’m just minding my own business walking through BJ’s (it’s the New England equivalent of Sam’s Club) and I see a huge box of Unicorn Cereal!

I waited and waited and waited for the April release date to finally arrive, and then when it finally did my husband went on a bunch of trips and told me I had to wait for him to watch! So here we are. We finally watched! (Don’t worry, no spoilers here!) The first episode features Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar. As I learned more and more about her history and her work and her preferences, I felt like she and I were the same person! Except for, you know, the creativity and talent and success part… I really admire her so much and she is such a strong inspiration to me. Continue Reading
Can you believe it’s already May?! April flew by without me bringing you a single recipe. So here I am, in May, asking you to forgive me by sharing with you what is quite possibly one of my favorite recipes yet. This Lavender Lemon Meringue Pie looks and tastes perfect for spring, and makes an ideal Mother’s Day treat!
