We’ve still got a few weeks left until the official last day of summer, and I don’t know about you, but I’m determined to make these next few weeks as summery and fun as possible! It helps that here in San Francisco, summer has only just begun and the days are heating up!
To celebrate, I’m whipping up these sweet mochi cakes, that have a dense, chewy texture that reminds me of my childhood eating mochi ice cream. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you better get your tush to the closest Asian grocery store and try some! Meanwhile… you can work on these scrumptious little mochi cakes…
I may be a week late, but better late than never to let you in on the spiked, crushed watermelon popsicle recipe I made for Lulu’s last week! Technically I’m not late, I just sensed you needed a popsicle recipe specifically for this weekend, am I right?
Don’t worry, there’s also shared how to make a non-spiked version, but what we should really be taking away from this is that they have the rind! I mean, how cute is that?! Pop on over there to see the how to, and I’ll catch you on Monday with more goodies! xo
I’m gearing up for Thanksgiving this week with my yearly chocolate covered strawberry turkey recipe and crossing every limb I have for the miracle of seeing snow in Houston since I won’t be making it back to the east coast for the holiday. I’ll be laying low until next week with the exception of a few exciting tid-bits of news here and there but I’m wishing you lots of turkey induced naps and pieces of pie you don’t need but eat anyways.
Now, how many of you will be heading out for Black Friday? I’m terribly too impatient for lines and camping out, but if you have any online deals that I should know about I’m all ears!
