It’s that time again! It’s August so everyone is gearing up to head back to school. For some people this is a welcome break from having kids at home; for others it’s the end of a relaxing summer. Whichever group you fall in, we’ve got some fun new gift ideas for your kids’ favorite teacher, your over 21 wine and dessert loving college student, or yourself.
Special occasion cakes are a great way to celebrate big events- weddings, anniversaries, graduations, and more. These cakes are works of art and incredible. But the cakes that really get me are the simple ones. A delicious, creamy frosting on top of a tender, moist cake with a simple but refreshing decoration of berries is the perfect way to treat yourself in the middle of the week. This cake took a family’s evening dinner from average to great and encouraged them to spend more time enjoying each other’s company.
Independence Day is almost here and I am making the best tarts to celebrate. Picture it: the filling from my old fashioned strawberry pie and the tart dough from my mom’s cherry tarts into one juicy, sweet, flaky, delicious dessert. Are you ready for it?
It’s almost Father’s Day! Are you ready to shower your dad with all the wine and desserts he deserves? If you’ve procrastinated, don’t worry. I have lots of options to stuff him full of delicious things and make him feel like a million bucks.
Memorial Day is an opportunity to relax, barbeque, drink, and have fun with friends and family. And in many ways that’s exactly as it should be. We should celebrate our freedom. We are fortunate enough to have people who are willing to protect our rights and our comforts so we can go float the river, eat grilled meat, and drink wine. All I ask is that while you are enjoying yourself on Memorial Day, take a moment to raise your glass in honor of those who have died to protect us.
We have a lot of events coming up in the next two months, from Mother’s Day on May 13th to Father’s Day on June 17th to high school and college graduations throughout May and June. It can be a little overwhelming, but this month’s gift guide update is here to help you get all of your shopping done so you can kick back and enjoy these events!
