With everything from my salted caramel ice cream cake shots, to my cupcakes in a cup, you know I’m all about some clever recipe ideas. So, when Good Pop filled me in on their best-kept-secret popsicle cocktail ideas, I was instantly sold!
Not only is this popsicle cocktail recipe perfect for summer weather, but it also adds the perfect touch of color (and a few ooh’s and aah’s) to just about any tablescape. Plus, you only a need a few quick ingredients to make a refreshing adult cocktail or a sweet treat for the kiddos!

No lie. This isn’t one of those scenes from Elf where Buddy congratulates the coffee shop for having the “World’s best cup of coffee”. No, no, this is legit. With the summer coming up and guests popping in unexpected, this is a bruschetta recipe that you’ll want on hand. And the best part about this appetizer? It requires no actual cooking or measurements, just throw all of the ingredients together and you’re set!
Ingredients (all of my ingredients are from Trader Joe’s):
- Brioche toast slices
- English peaches n’ cream cheese
- Fresh avocado
- White truffle oil
- Bruschetta sauce
Drizzle a bit of white truffle oil on each brioche toast and then top with bruschetta, avocado, and cheese.

It’s been approximately seven months since my last sugar scrub recipe, which means I’m approximately 6 months over due. So, I’ve come back with a punch by mixing my life-long love affairs with coffee and homemade beauty products to make this cinnamon coffee sugar scrub. Seriously, it’s smells so good I could take a bite out of it…
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 2 tablespoons of instant coffee grounds
All you have to do is combine all of the ingredients together and stir. I always get a lot of comments about the recipe being too runny, or too dry. This is really just personal preference, so if you find it’s too runny, add more sugar, and f it’s too dry, add a tad more coconut oil or honey.

Hands down one of my favorite food bloggers is Melissa, the magician and all around sweetheart behind The Faux Martha. Not only does she have pictures pretty enough to take a bite out of, but if there is a tip or trick to be had, she’s got that too.
For a little last minute Easter weekend prep, I picked out a few recipes to try over your (hopefully) long weekend…

Always a favorite, mascarpone french toast.
A sure way to anyone’s heart, salted dark chocolate nutella cookies.
And a fun last minute addition to Easter eggs, homemade marshmallows.

For those of you that couldn’t be at the Ikea DIY event a few weeks ago, you can catch the flavored drink recipe portion on the Ikea Houston blog! Trust me, you’ll really like this one. Plus it’s crazy simple and you could make jugs of it in about the same time frame that it takes to eat a cupcake. It’s been proven, take my word for it.
