Caramelized Pineapple Cheesecake Cups
I may have mentioned this a thousand times before, but moving across the country is pretty stressful, as it turns out. And stress makes being nice to others, particularly certain husbands, pretty difficult, as it turns out. One day you're in love and the next you're duct taping all of his clothes into a giant ball because if he's not going to help you pack you're not going to waste a perfectly good box on him, so there.
Not that I speak from experience or anything.
4-Ingredient Blueberry Cobbler Dump Cake
A few days ago I wouldn't have wanted to give you an update on our huge move. I struggled to find my place in Raleigh over the past three years and spent a lot of time pleading with God to open a door or turn me around or throw me a rope or . . . something. But year after year there were clear indications that I was in process right where I needed to be. Wait. Wait. Wait.
But then I found out the school of my dreams for the past decade had a graduate school, and then I got accepted into that graduate school. A graduate school that just so happened to be located in one of my favorite cities in the world. Every tiny door that hadn't opened for me was suddenly forgotten as God opened a more amazing door than I'd imagined possible. Grateful, humbled, I committed to walking through that door. But then (fellow believers out there may know what comes next) the last couple of months have been one solid, scary trial.
Blueberry Goat Cheese Pastry Braid
These pastry braids are an elegant addition to any special occasion tablescape (I just said tablescape. Pls forgive me. Thanks.) Anyhow, these make delicious breakfasts, desserts, or appetizers with minor tweaks to the filling ingredients. They are deceptively easy to prepare, and they come out beautiful enough to impress your guests!
Spiked Blueberry Lemonade Punch
If homemade blueberry lemonade sounds good, then spiked blueberry lemonade punch sounds even better. This patio-party cocktail begins with homemade blueberry syrup and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Ginger ale adds a fun fizz to the lemonade before vodka and champagne team up to make this the perfect backyard sipper. Add moonlight, lighting bugs, and maybe a few Tiki torches, and enjoy!
