Happy April 25th y’all! May it be not too hot and not too cold 😜
Here is my week in pics
Miles is the cutest puppy angel 👼frolicking in the pond!
The best fruit combo ever! We learned this from a fruit vendor in Brazil and it is sooo delicious and simple.
Tiger is my official guacamole helper. He takes his role very seriously. #mastpurrchef
Friday night in watching the Bruce Jenner-Diane Sawyer interview. #TeamBruce ❤️❤️❤️
There is nothing worse than a bad margarita. This recipe from Ina Garten is perfect! Be warned: she is a heavy pourer. Ina knows Jeffrey had a hard day and needs a stiff drink to unwind. (I’m Jeffrey.) 😊🍹😊🍹😊🍹Enjoy!
These little sculpey bowls are now my fave little catch-alls. The perfect project after having extra sculpey on hand from making the marbled coasters.
I used this how-to and I love how they turned out! Rolling the sculpey into ropes and twisiting is such a great way to get the marbling effect!
This is the best guacamole ever. Lots of textures, not too mashed and plenty of flavor. I once ate like two bowls of this stuff in one night… by myself. #YOLO
Mash all together and enjoy with some chips and a margarita!
So excited to be heading up to Boston for the weekend. #MarathonMonday2015!
Here’s our official weekend playlist:
Let’s have the best weekend ever!
My week in pics ❤ ❤ ❤
Sweet Treat! I found this cookie while cleaning out a cupboard. I have no idea how long it has been there but it was mad good. Is that gross? YOLO.
The cutest baby wildflowers spotted on my walk! #SPRING!
Prep the Game of Thrones Premiere. #Winteriscoming margs, #winterisleaving margs, #sunandmystars margs. Just the essentials. (Excuse the ATTROCIOUS photo… I may or may not have been margarita drunk).
Candy Coated Matzah. My solution to Passover leftovers. A beautifully non Kosher for Passover version of my Caramel Chocolate Matzah Crunch.
Friday Night Drinks! I’m still feeling these 😴😴😴
Jalapeño infused vodka! This stuff is so good. The spice totally cuts the vodka after taste (ideal for taking shots during a quickie pregame). I researched infusing techniques for a ridiculous amount of time and ended up using this recipe. I can’t wait to use this in every cocktail. I now also have an absurdly long list of other liquor flavor combinations to try: Kumquat gin, fig brandy… the possibilities are endless!
Pro Tip: USE GLOVES. The first time I made this my hands felt like they were on fire for a full day and a half after cutting and seeding the peppers. I actually thought I was going to cut off my hands.
This looks SO cute! I have seen this done all over Pinterest etc and this is my take.
I glued together three sheets of paper and cut a long strip from the bottom left corner to the top right. Then I folded it into two lines, reinforced the lines that would have writing with cardboard and wrote my message! I then glue gunned the banner to two wooden skewers and attached the little glitter circles 🙂
This chocolate cake is THE BOMB. It is so good and rich but not at all overwhelming. It is from this South African cookbook Another Week in the Kitchen which is the second cookbook from author Karen Dudley. The Kitchen is a really cute, trendy restaurant/deli/catering company in Woodstock that I LOVED when I visited this past September. ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
This is my go-to cake for all celebrations 😊
